Friday Favorites – Back to School, Halloween Finds and A Trip Out West

Happy Friday to one and all! We’ve had a busy few weeks readjusting to school schedules and the kids’ extracurricular activities. I do believe there was a day this week that I pulled in and out of my driveway 14 times… Phew! It’s been busy, indeed!

Jane started four year old preschool on Wednesday and she loooooved it! She’s such a social butterfly and she’s so eager to jump right in to whatever is happening in life! We’re so happy for her!

I’ve been asked where I found her dress and you guys, I found it on sale at Zulily! The simplicity of it had my heart and her little red shoes screamed, “Preschool!”

I’ve started to decorate for Halloween over here and I’m hoping to share lots of content over on my Instagram soon, too! WooHoo! Pink and black Halloween decorations have been on my mind a lot lately, so I threw together a little mood board of some adorable finds from Amazon.

The favor boxes have arrived and I can’t wait to stuff them with goodies for Jane’s preschool friends!

Speaking of Instagram – I made a Reel featuring these skeletons from Walmart!!! Have you guys seen these?! They’re such an amazing price! Jane has named ours, Mrs. Bone-y!

Okay, here’s one more spooky Amazon Halloween find! Check out these beaded earrings! A friend of mine was wearing some beaded ghost earrings from Marshall’s the other day and being that we don’t live near a Marshall’s nor were her cute beaded ghost earrings online, I headed straight for the search box on Amazon to see what I could find!

I did end up finding the cutest spooky beaded Halloween earrings!

Since I took most of the summer off from blogging, I’ve been catching up and sharing our adventures out west to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks! I have one more recap to go and I’ll be all caught up! If you’re interested in booking a trip, I’ve blogged a little about our adventures as a keepsake for our family, but also in hopes that it helps someone else out there considering a trip to these spectacular locations! I learn so much when others do the same!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have the very best weekend! We have the first of many jam-packed fall weekends starting tomorrow – we’re heading to a cross country meet, a soccer game and then Jon and I are going on a date to see Dave Chappelle in Detroit – it’ll be our first date night since March – it’s soooo needed!

Thanks again friends,

Marie 🙂

  1. Jane is adorable and I love those red shoes! We head to southern Michigan all the time too. In fact, we’ll be up there tomorrow. We live in Northern Indiana. Happy Weekend.
