Friday Favorites

All my posts have me thinking about one thing this week...

From the Mickey's Monster Musical Giveaway, to my weekend recap.
To the August Edition of What's Up, to my #ThinkingOutLoudThursdays post.
Everything is Fall related.

Now let's get to the fun stuff of the week!
My favorites!

I started my week off on a wonderful note!
I came home from work on Monday night to this...
My absolute FAVORITE TV show!
Oh how I love Tim Riggins and FNL!
And now I love the Pivot channel for re airing the series every night from 5-9pm!

On Tuesday, my big bad 3year old started his first full year of preschool at a new school.
To say I was nervous the night before and the entire first day would be an understatement!

After dinner on Monday, we baked up every one's favorite - chocolate chips cookies!
It didn't calm my nerves, but it made this guy happy :)

We woke up the next morning excited for X's new adventure!
Here are his favorites as of Tuesday morning :)

This kid sure is my favorite :)

Both of these boys have my heart :)

We walked into his new preschool and he immediately ran off to play.
Couldn't ask for a better drop-off!
And there was absolutely no crying!
I mean, I didn't cry when we brought him to daycare 3 years ago and I am not crying now.

I couldn't be more proud of that little guy and how well he is adapting to a new house and new school over the last few weeks.
I pray he has a wonderful year with his new school, teacher, and friends.

No time for homemade goodies when mommy is working all day :(
But we did manage to keep one of my favorite back to school traditions alive and have cupcakes when X got home from school!

He looks like he is really focused on eating that cupcake!

Shortly after that, we found out it was exhaustion!
Poor little guy fell asleep while eating dinner at 6pm!
Watching him sleep is definitely a favorite!
Unfortunately, he woke up by 8;15pm :(
So bedtime was a little rough, but we were thankfully able to get him back to sleep by 10:15.

At the time of writing this, we are officially done with 2 full days of school and things seem to be going well.
He is still tired, but is excited to go see his new friends each day :)
I hope that excitement keeps up all year long!
Actually, I hope it keeps with him all through his school years.

I had a splitting headache on Wednesday night so there was no making dinner for me.
We changed clothes after work and headed out for some comfort food on this perfectly cool evening.
 I actually wore my blardigan outside of the house for the first time!
It was so comfy!
And I paired it with my favorite booties that I picked up from Nordstrom last year in the Anniversary Sale.

Any guesses where we found comfort food at?
We love Cracker Barrel!
High on the list of favorites for the whole family :)
That kid devoured those huge pancakes!

My headache called for caffeine, or chocolate, or something ;)
So I ordered coca cola cake!
Have you ever had this?
I have loved it for years!
My favorite dessert they serve!

On the docket this weekend is putting things away at the new house, and attending our annual Fantasy Draft at my dad's house!
Any suggestions on who I should draft?

What do you have on your plate?

Linking up with these ladies below.

Happy Friday!

  5. To have the life of a child! haha he looks like he is always having such a good time :) I'm glad he did so well starting preschool and yay for not crying! I would give you draft advice but then you would probably loose because I know NOTHING about sports. Good luck!
