Friday Favorites {9.7.17}

Happy Friday!! I don't know about you guys, but this week dragged for me, and it was a short week! Isn't that how it always goes? Plus Brayden got strep throat and I felt a little crummy for a couple of days so that didn't help.

Anyway, the weekend is here and that has me excited!! We will be celebrating sweet Ella's 5th birthday tomorrow with a huge party and I cannot wait! My aunt is making her a rainbow unicorn cake which I'm probably the most excited about! Don't worry, I'll share pics next week :)

Now let's take a look at my favorites of the week:

{ONE} - Ella's 5th Birthday!

Our sweet Ella Bella turned 5 this past Tuesday and of course I wrote her a birthday letter - you can read it here if you missed it. She kept saying she didn't want to turn 5 because if she turned 5 then she would just keep getting older, and when she gets older, I will die - I mean OMG!! She had me bawling the other night because she kept talking about how she doesn't want me to die! Even though she has been on a bit of a morbid kick lately, I think she enjoyed her birthday and I know she will enjoy her party!

love this pic of her right when she woke up on her birthday

{TWO}- E & M Pallet Designs 

I want this sign SO bad!! In fact, I would like one of everything from this shop!! The stuff is the cutest and I love the planked wood look inside the frames! If you go check out her FB page, she is doing an awesome giveaway right now too!!

{THREE} - Tutus By Jess

My SIL's friend has an Etsy shop with the cutest stuff!!! Check out these Trolls headbands! Ahh so cute!! Would be perfect for Halloween! She also makes custom tutus and bows! Everything is super cute and very reasonable! You can see everything here! 

{FOUR} - Party Planning

Through my party planning I stumbled across many shops - this one has the cutest custom invitations and party printables!! They are so reasonably priced too! You can see everything here

{FIVE} - Cooler Temps

We have been having some cooler weather this week and all it makes me want to do is cook & bake!! This Sunday I hope to spend some time whipping up something fall-like with the kiddos and then something yummy for dinner

These rice krispie treat pumpkins look easy enough and I know they will be a hit! (plus I think I've had them pinned for several years now, time to actually make them!)

These rice krispie treat pumpkins are ADORABLE and they're really easy to make! They'd be perfect for a Halloween party snack, or even Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone has a great weekend! Ours will be fun filled celebrating a very special 5 year old!!

See you back here Monday :)

  5. Happy birthday, Ella! I hope y'all have fun celebrating your sweet girl!! Those little Trolls headbands are DARLING. Olivia would die!

  6. Those pumpkin rice krispie treats are always such a fun treat and so much fun to make. We make them every year for a special snack for my kiddo's classes. I love those troll headbands and can think of a girl of 15 that would LOVE them! Have a great weekend!

  7. My kids would go crazy for those rice krispy treats. So cute!

  8. I don't want you to die, either! LOL! What a heart Ella has and how stinking' smart! Happy Belated Birthday, sweet girl. I've been meaning to you read your letter to her...I just know it's going to make me cry!!! Also, I felt the same way about this past week, talk about sloooooow. I'm trying to gear up and pump myself up for these full weeks of school heading our way over here. Nothing coffee and wine can't fix, right?!

  9. Oh my those trolls headbands are absolutely precious!!!

  10. Those headbands are AMAZING!!!! So cute and so creative. I am loving those pumpkins too. We had like two days of fall and then it heated back up.
