Hello! TGIF, amIright? 😉

Here’s what’s floating my boat this week..


I mean, there is just something so stinking cute about booties. Paired with skinny jeans, or cute dress – I mean, LOVE LOVE LOVE. And oh the options! Peep toe, low heel, bigger heel, tassels…all equally adorable.  I got mine last Fall at Marshalls, but found the SAME ones on Amazon!! I live in these guys.

2. Chalkboards.

Some people say they are a thing of the past, but goodness, I still love ’em and I think I always will. Remember when I framed our fridge chalkboard last summer? It’s Fall ready now (pardon the glare – time crunch to get this post up and the sun was setting!;)…

…and I saw this cute guy at Hobby Lobby last week and definitely want to do something similar on here once December hits!

3. Grace.

I had a day this week when I just stayed in my pajamas all day. I got some stuff done around the house, but not a whole lot. There was SO much more I could do that should be done, but I was kinda just in a funk. I felt down. Then I started feeling guilty about it, which made it worse, and then I decided something that turned the whole day around. I decided to give myself some grace. We often don’t give ourselves enough, and shouldn’t we? It wasn’t the end of the world that I had a day like that. Sure I could’ve accomplished a heck of a lot more, but we need to sometimes put our hands up, and say you know what? I’m going to let myself off the hook today. It’s ok that I’m still in my pajamas at 5pm. It’s ok that I didn’t get a lot accomplished. The world didn’t fall apart, and my husband came home and guess what he said? “I love that you’re still in your pjs. You deserve it.”

So I poured a glass of wine, and made my family dinner, with the feeling of contentment and realization that tomorrow is a new day.

Grace. It’s so important and it changed my whole day.

Give yourself some today. I mean, my family room sign even encourages it…;)

Have a beautiful and blessed weekend, my lovelies!

    Have really been wanting to turn the side of my fridge into a chalkboard….I think I’m motivated now! 🙂

  3. I LOVE everything you listed today!! I finally broke down and got myself a pair of booties a couple of weeks ago and I am soooooo glad I did. They make me feel pretty and stylish and I find them to be really comfortable. And grace!! I have been working on that one a lot lately lol.

    Grace, not perfection. We all need to give ourselves more grace. Love that you mentioned Grace in your favorites today ❤️
