five on friday

one. fair days
I made an impromptu trip to the fair this week- no kids.  no husband.  just me and the cotton candy.
and corn dogs.
..annnd lemonade.
Brittany asked me to tag along to a photoshoot she had planned at the Texas State Fair because last minute her family couldn’t make the trip- so of course I said yes! I haven’t been to the fair in about 12 years- which is like blasphemy here in Dallas, but Jordan isn’t a HUGE fan, but omg I was like a giant kid in this candy store.  completely fascinated by everything and I just had the best time- even if I was just tagging along.
OF course you can find me eating.
you can get my amazing sweater tunic (super lightweight) here and maternity (!) moto leggings here
two. birthday shopping
my sister in law and I are exactly one month apart in our birthdays.. we’ve celebrated 17 years of birthdays together (she came looooong before the hubby) and spent the majority of our high school years connected at the hip.  Bree (her mama) and Bree’s bestie Teresa, who is basically like a second mother to me, wanted to treat Jenna and myself with shopping + lunch for our birthdays so we planned for a day when Jenna didn’t have school (fair day!!) which happened to be this last Wednesday.  we spent the day at northpark and had lunch at maggianos– and let me tell you.. it was SO good for my soul.  I just had the BEST day and I was sad to see it come to an end.  
three. preggo style
sooooo many of ya’ll loved my plaid tunic!  I LOVE it- and I snagged this amazing item during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and was so excited to finally wear it.  it is such a unique item in my closet and while I own about eleven duster cardigans I don’t have anything remotely close to this!  I will say, this is LONG- I am relatively tall at just about 5’7″ and it comes to my ankles when wearing 3in booties.  unfortunately, I cant find this tunic anywhere but I did come across a couple other options similar to it!

PLUS- my other favorite pair of motherhood maternity jeans, this time in a medium wash and I love the distressed denim look.  I can totally still be fashionable AND pregnant, you know:)  I also linked a couple other items I picked up this week that are NOT maternity but still fit my belly relatively well right now.
four. halloween jammies (!!)

October first rolled itself around (finally!!) which means it is 100% appropriate to be wearing halloween jammies every single night of the month.  OK- so we dont have that many pairs, but thank goodness for the 15 minute quick wash option on my washing matching.. amen??
it is no secret that I love jammies in general, and so when the festive wear starts to hit the shelves between now and Christmas I just cannot help myself.
AND- these sass pant little girls. wear their boots and their pajamas.
starting trends.
lets hope this one doesn’t catch on.

just a few of my favorite halloween holiday jams!

!function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? ‘http’ : ‘https’;if(!d.getElementById(id)) {e = d.createElement(s); = id;e.src = p + ‘://’ + ‘’ + ‘/js/shopthepost.js’;d.body.appendChild(e);}if(typeof window.__stp === ‘object’) if(d.readyState === ‘complete’) {window.__stp.init();}}(document, ‘script’, ‘shopthepost-script’);

five. forts
Jordan made the twins this giant fort in the kitchen covering the kitchen table- complete with a lamp and all the comfortable bedding you can think of.  these two stayed in that fort seriously for HOURS.  I swear they didn’t come up for air from noon until 4pm.  they ate lunch and a snack in there and watched movies and youtube kids, and no body minded.  Baker had the playroom to herself.. so it was like managed silence in our house for that time.  I didn’t even know what to do with myself!  we needed an evening walk after they laid around all day- but how fun is their dad for building this?!  the weather is rainy here today.. so maybe we will have some more fort building.

its FRI-YAY!!!
