Friday Favorites

Today is our last Friday of summer break.  Eek!  Monday morning, we'll be headed out to meet the bus.  It's always crazy how slow the school year seems to creep along, and how fast summer flies by.  It never ceases to amaze me.  I guess time flies when we're having fun.  So, that would mean we need to have more fun during the school year, right?!  ;)

Onto my Friday Favorites...
Once again I'm linking up with Andrea, Erika & Narci.


One of the boutiques I follow on Facebook (The Mason Jar Boutique), advertised this vest.  I've never ordered anything from this particular place before, but I decided to take a chance and go for it.  It came this week and I LOVE it!  This green is my favorite color to wear, so I'm always super happy when I can find something I love.



Okay, so this is the weirdest favorite for me, but like they say, "If you can't beat them, then join them."  My boys love playing fantasy football every year, and I've decided to hop on board again this year.  We draft on Monday, which means it's time for me to do a little homework.  I beat Dan the first year I played and then lost to him in the finals another.  It's safe to say, the possibility of beating Dan at anything, brings out my competitive side.  The other crazy part of this is, I love sitting down and watching some football, while eating good food, but otherwise I am fairly clueless when it comes to the sport.  I know a couple of players, and a few of the rules, but nothing like my boys.  They know everybody and everything about each player.  That's what makes losing to me so hard.  ;)



Speaking of football, I'm ready to start making this yummy jalapeno dip, and all sorts of good food.



We had an open house last night at Emma and Jesse's school.  Dan went with Jesse and I went with Emma.  I know some people dread going to these kinds of things, but I love them.  I love seeing their teachers, checking out the classrooms, and listening to all the different things that they'll be doing through out the year.  Plus all the new backpacks, school supplies and nervous/excited kids, is just fun.  At our school you don't walk your kid to their classroom on the first day of school, so really open house is the night you get to check everything out.



Just in case you're needing a bit of humor to start your weekend off right, I've got you covered.  These were a couple of my favorites that I saw on Facebook this week.
You know it's true!

Can we all agree on this?  I had never considered this, but not it sure seems like a real possibility.  ;)

Have a great weekend!



  1. I love that vest!! Please share the Facebook boutique. I just bought my first item for a Facebook boutique too and I pick it up today, can't wait! I also love the two memes!! I swear my children change clothes three times a day by the amount of laundry I do each week. Have a great weekend!

    1. I ordered it from the Mason Jar Boutique. And yes, I swear my kids must change that many times in a day as well. :)

  2. Hey Jessica! Glad you commented on my blog so I could come find yours. I can't wait for football season and that jalapeno dip looks yummy! Food is probably my favorite thing about football season :) The picture of the parents looking into the Kindergarten classroom is hilarious.

    1. The food is my favorite thing about football season as well. It's hard to beat. :)

  3. Our schools started 2 full weeks ago. It's insane and think they should wait until after Labor Day. Happy weekend!
