a few favorite things...

I am not ever sure I remembered the password to this blog...but here I am.  I wanted to share a few of my favorite things right now.

1.  This shampoo and conditioner.  It smells SO good, makes my hair super soft, is sulfate-free, and can be found at Walmart or Target for less than $6.

Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo

2. This candle from Walmart.  It smells like fall and is less than $5 for the glass jar.  Awesome.

3.  This paint color.  Sweet Pea by Olympic Paints at Lowes.

It is a beautiful mint green!  I first saw it on this gorgeous nightstand redo.

4.  These sugar cookie bars.  Be warned, they are AMAZING and will require you to have a glass of milk nearby.  I used all butter in the icing (I was out of shortening) and it tasted great!

5.  These 2 faces. :)  Brittney Davis took our family pictures last month and I am IN LOVE with them!  If you are in the Dallas metro area, look her up!

If you want to keep up with more of my faves, be sure to follow me on Instagram!

***I am not being paid for any of this and I'm sure that none of these companies/products knows who I am. :)

valentine's day mantel...

Ya'll, it's been almost 4 months since I blogged.  Where has the time gone?  I am just going to jump back in!

I don't normally decorate for Valentine's Day, but the winter that never ends was calling for a little color and a little change!  I collected things that I had around the house, made a little banner out of old hymns and baker's twine, and had a Valentine's Day mantel.  I can't decide which piece is my favorite - I love the DIY "LOVE" sign that I made last year, with my sweet kiddos' hand and foot prints.  But I also love the heart that Grayson drew on the chalkboard.  It's not over the top or overly decorated...but it's perfect for us.

It's good to be back...

Welcome to instafriday! In an effort to get back to regular blogging, I am going to start linking up my weekly instagram pics with jeannett over at Life Rearranged.  

Grayson was playing around on his Etch-a-Sketch for about 5 minutes and said "Mom, Dad, look at what I made!"  This kid is 5, nearly 6, but has far superior spatial reasoning skills than his mom.  It would have taken me much longer than 5 minutes to "draw" my initials on the Etch-a-Sketch.

This baby's gummy smile is one of my favorite things. Seriously.

I finished up dinner and looked outside to see this...Scott and Grayson practicing passing the football while MK watched from her stroller.  He is the best daddy ever.

This dog is never far from us during the day.  He thinks he is a guard dog.  Love him.

I made Pioneer Woman's Chicken Parm recipe last week and MK could not get enough...neither could Scott and I.  The recipe is delicious and super easy.  Try it.

Scott and I were working on a large magnetic board for our church lobby.  Sheet metal is sharp, y'all. Scott finished the rest of it up by himself while MK and I played in our awesome Wellspring Babies room.

Snuggling with this sweet girl before MOPS the other morning.  Love her!

My fall was made yesterday morning.  We drove through a little donut shop in town for donuts and they had PUMPKIN donuts.  It was seriously fantastic.  I'm ready for another one!

Happy Friday, y'all!
