Friday Favorites {10.28.16}

Woohoo for Friday!

I'm looking forward to some warmer weather, Ella's dance class, Brayden's last soccer game and so much more fun mixed in there!

{ONE} - New Winter Boots

Living in the Chicago area, winter boots are a must! I have yet to own a really good pair however, and am now on the search. My SIL told me about these but they are a little pricey (but well worth it I'm sure!)

I'm looking at these and they look cute and also fit my budget - anyone have any other recommendations??


In case you missed it, I posted some fun clothing/shoe items earlier this week and showed you how you can splurge or save. You can see it here

{THREE} - Minnie Ears

I know we aren't going to Disney for another year, but when I saw this shop put up an awesome sale on their ears, I jumped at it! Seriously, she has the cutest stuff if you're in the market for Minnie ears or Disney bows! Make sure to follow her on IG to know when her deals are going on!

Polka dot Minnie ears, minnie mouse ears, red minnie ears, minnie mouse, my first disneyland, black minnie ears

{FOUR} - Hatchimals

I know I mentioned before how Ella's top thing she is asking for this year for Christmas was a hatchimal - well the other day Brayden kept talking about how he wanted one too. I was finally able to find one for Ella by the Grace of God since these things are sold out everywhere, so when he said that all I could think was, crap, here we go on the search again! I happend to call Toys R Us earlier this week and they told me they had some, but weren't putting them out until Thursday and it was first come first serve. Problem was they open the same time Ella has preschool, and it was her Halloween party so I couldn't show up late. I told my Mom about this and of course, she went for me and made it happen! I was soooooo stinkin excited! She said there were only 8 and there were 6 other people in line with her! I am so grateful I have a crazy Mother who will do anything for me :)

{FIVE} - Favorite Pins

How cute are these DIY ornaments!?

Personalized scrabble tile ornaments with bells and bows!:

This breakfast is on my to make list - it looks super yummy!

Sausage Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole Recipe - hash browns, sausage, eggs and cheese that can be made ahead of time and refrigerated until ready.:

That's a wrap for this week - I hope everyone enjoys the weekend, and GO CUBS!!!!


  1. Well this post couldn't have come at a better time! Those Mickey ears would be perfect for our upcoming trip! Making my order now =)
    I love my LL Bean boots. The outlets here always have them for a super reasonable price too.
    Have a great weekend!

  2. Happy Friday! I am wishing for cooler weather. I’m ready for it to actually feel like fall here. Sounds like a fun weekend ahead of you! I love those boots! They look cozy, but super cute as well. Those DIY ornaments are precious!

  3. Happy Friday! Loving those mini ears! I ended up just getting mine while we were in Disney but of course that means everyone else there has the same ones. Haha, crazy Moms who will do anything are great, aren't they?! Have a great weekend! Beautifully Candid

  4. I've been hearing about those dang Hatchimals everywhere all of a sudden and I had never even heard of them until just recently. I don't even think our kids know what they are! I guess that's a good thing since they're sold out everywhere!

  5. Those ornaments are so cute and perfect for Christmas! Those Hatchimals looks very interesting..!

  6. We're rooting for the Cubbies here, too. Those ornaments are adorable. You could also do ones with things like love and joy.

  7. I have never even heard of hatchimals but can totally see my girls LOVING them. What a blessing to have that out of the way, eh?! I totally need to follow that Disney shop too.

  8. Those boots are cute and totally justifiable at $67 a pair!! Need to check out your splurge vs. save post! I was a horrible blog reader last week (#singlemomlife) but those are some of my favorite types of posts!!!

  9. Oh my goodness, so glad you got one of those presents. Crazy how they only have such a limited number!
