Which means it’s time for Friday Favorites!
don’t waste your time trying to find a common thread,
and just enjoy! 🙂
Watching Carter love on Scout is one of my very favorite things to do.
Let’s not talk about the fact that Scout’s white face makes me want to bawl my head off.
Scout is 10 1/2 years old, and my sweet little guy loves him so so much.
Every single day I hear Carter say things to Scout like “You’re so cute Scout” or “I love you so much Scout”. They’re besties. And he calls him “ScouterBud” which is just too cute for words.
I could have a panic attack if I think about Scout’s age for too long.
This picture is just about too much for me to handle.
Continuing to see the love and support that you all are pouring over Manda has made my week.
(If you didn’t see my original post about my friend Manda, please click HERE.)
Here at home, we have committees formed for everything so our friend won’t have to worry about mundane details of life while she is fighting this….
But please remember that even if you don’t know Manda, you can still help this sweet family!
We are hoping to raise lots and lots of funds to help ease the financial stress of this diagnosis.
Some of you had asked if she had insurance, and yes she does!
However, we all know that co-pays and out of pocket expenses can be enormous.
And many of the homeopathic things she is doing (in conjunction with chemo) are not covered at all.
So, here’s what you can do:
You can donate HERE.
Even $10 is appreciated!
Keep updated on specific prayer requests by liking her facebook page HERE.
Manda had her first round of chemo on Monday night, and she is already feeling quite sick.
Please pray for her to get rest and for the anti nausea meds to start helping her.
If you are local, sign up for the 5k HERE .
I didn’t mention this on Monday, but there is also a Zumbathon you can learn about HERE.
And now you can order super cute MUST HAVE t-shirts HERE!!!!! 🙂
The sweet girls over at Evy’s Tree contacted me to see if I would review some of their products.
They sent me a couple of things, and I was very impressed!
Click HERE for the Reece in navy.
It is sooooooooo soft.
It’s really light, so it’s great for early fall and spring.
And the ruffle detail up around the shoulder is darling!
I had been told by a friend that she felt the items ran small, so I ordered a medium.
I’m glad I did because I think the small would have been too tight.
abalone earrings c/o Kendra Scott HERE, signature necklace c/o BaubleBar HERE,
green v-neck sold out from J Crew Factory, AG jeans still ON SALE HERE,
nude patent flats HERE
Isn’t it so cute?!?
Click HERE for the Brooke tunic in eggplant.
Again, I’m wearing a medium.
I think I could have worn a small around my bootie and thighs, but I needed a medium
in my boobs (my poor Dad).
Notice the bell sleeves. Some might love them, some might hate them…so I definitely wanted to point them out.
It’s actually a scoop neck, and the “cowl neck” thing you see is actually a separate scarf type thingy.
I know, I’m so technical.
Loved the color, and it was a great length for leggings!
tunic HERE/ MUST HAVE leggings HERE/ cognac wedge boots sold out, but similar HERE
Carter’s favorite shoes ever are Natives.
He has similar ones in 4 different colors from GAP, but last year we got him the red Natives and he prefers those over the GAP ones and wears them 90% of the time.
So, when I saw they were on sale, I thought we could go ahead and scoop up the blue and the
Click HERE for the Natives on sale.
The design looks a little bit different, but we’re going to give them a try!
My friend Jeni (you know that told us about the taupe suede booties that are now sold out by the way)…well she bought THESE skinny cargo pants.
Shay ran into her after buying them, and she bought them too.
And then I bought them.
And they are FAB.
Perfectly stretchy and seriously flattering.
I’m normally a size 27 in pants (which is normally considered a size 4).
I bought a 27 in these pants (even though it says size 6), and the 27s were good for me.
So, pay attention to the waist size in inches, not the 2-4-6-etc. size if that makes sense
My post next Friday is going to include a Pinterest Told Me To outfit recreation with THESE pants.
I’ve already been working on my Pinterest collage for this post, and I thought if you saw it, you could vote on which outfit I should recreate next week!

The OCD in me couldn’t let me end today on 9 things.
So here we go..
One more to make it 10.
Click HERE for all of the fall MUST HAVES that are 20% off at Piperlime.
Lots of amazingness on sale over at Piperlime, so you need to at least hop over for a quick browse.
We’re all just going to act like this next item doesn’t make it 11. Because if I talked about it, I would probably have to think of a 12. And I don’t want to think of a 12.
But I do think #11 deserved a review because of it’s new MUST HAVE status.
This was named a MUST HAVE SCARF on Wednesday.
wonderfully soft and cozy, perfect size, and it styles itself
WIN. WIN. WIN.
the cardigan is old from GAP :(, elle earrings c/o Kendra Scott HERE, jeans HERE (loving my first designer jeans so much and they are still on sale!), nude patent flats HERE.
So it’s 6 a.m. on Friday, and I just opened an e-mail from Anthropologie that told me that dresses are 15% OFF (no code needed), and that they are doing free shipping on your entire order with a $150 minimum with the code TWOTREATS.
And all is right with the world again, because this is technically #12.
Click HERE to shop Anthro.
This is a tragedy, because now I have 13 Friday favorites, but a reader just tagged me on instagram to make sure I knew about THIS sale going on at Old Navy. They are basically giving things away today. In addition to the things that are already on sale, you can get an extra 15% OFF when you shop online with the code ONSAVENOW.
Click HERE to scroll through 2 pages of sale merchandise to see if there is anything you can’t live without. You know, since it’s basically free and all.
