Friday Favorites | Grateful Heart

Hey Friends! Happy Friday!
So excited to head north this weekend for the Cleveland Browns game!
Are you ready for me First Energy Stadium? lol!
I hope they are able to produce this reaction against the Raiders this week!
Don't forget to check out my healthy tailgating ideas!

This past week has been pretty darn good!
So let's get to my favorites of the week!

My favorite preschooler has learned so much in the last month at his new school.
It just reiterates that we made the best decision to change schools this year :)
The preschool he is now going to has a faith based curriculum so he is learning a few things he would normally learn in Sunday school.
He was in the tub other night reciting this little song and the prayer he says before snack and lunch.
That boy just melts me time and time again!
I am truly grateful for the wonderful teachers that he has this year :)

 Over the weekend Mic and I had the pleasure to witness my cousin and his beautiful bride tie the knot just outside of Washington D.C.
It was a beautiful day!
And the food?
Oh my word! The paella was my favorite!
Check out all the details here and what I wore here.

My absolute favorite apples are back in season!
Honeycrisp are just the best!
I loaded up when I was at Kroger on Monday night.

One of my favorite shows as a child is back!
The new Muppets show premiered on Tuesday evening and I loved it!
X watched too, but wasn't nearly as excited or impressed as I was :(
But that is alright, we will be watching it every week so he has plenty of time to fall in love with the characters like me :)

Wednesday was the first official day of our favorite season - Fall!
We did what most people do on the first day of Fall, got ice cream! lol!
I picked up X from school and surprised him with a trip to our favorite spot for our favorite ice cream!
He kept saying we were eating Super Hero ice cream :)
 After asking to get a pic with him, he wanted to take selfies! lol!
Sidenote: Does everyone else's kid have to take the picture themselves?
I am no longer "allowed" to press the button myself :/

I mentioned this before, but I have to say it again.
I think I have a new Fall favorite at Starbucks.
The Salted Caramel Mocha Latte :)
I kind of feel like I am cheating on the PSL, but I can't help it.
It has the perfect amount of salt, and sweet, and cream.
Oh, and coffee too! lol!
I picked up the new Toasted Graham in frap form for Mic, but he wasn't terribly impressed with it.
Has anyone else tried it yet?
What are your thoughts?
I heard it is more espresso tasting than sweet. Hmm...

And last favorite of the day, my new TOMS Herringbone Desert Wedges (no longer available) arrived from Zulily!
I am in love!
More on those next week! :)

And that has been my week!
What have you been up to?
Any fun activities planned for this last weekend of September?

Linking up today with the lovely ladies below


  1. lol at the ice cream pics, so fun!!!
    it's crazy how much and how fast our littles learn stuff, so glad he's enjoying preschool

  2. I PVRed the Muppets and I can't wait to watch it tonight! Have a great weekend!

  3. I LOVE honeycrisp apples too!! Definitely on my grocery list for this weekend :) I heard mixed things about The Muppets new show- I heard it's more adult-geared with lots of pop culture references and really not for kids. Thoughts?

  4. I've heard so many great things about that Salted Caramel Mocha!! And yes, I could LIVE off of Honeycrisp apples….with peanut butter of course!

  5. Have fun at the Browns game! and holla...had no idea the Muppets were back on!! I totally remember watching every week at my grandparents house for some reason. My Papa use to get so tickled at the two old men in the balcony.
