Friday Favorites

Yay for Friday!!

I'm linking up with my gals Erika, Narci and Andrea and sharing my favorite things this Friday!

Here we go...

Last Friday, I painted my nails this color...I loved it and it's totally appropriate for today :).
OPI's Thank Glogg it's Friday

So, this scarf arrived this week and it was love at first site.  Goodness!!

I love it.  Love, love, love it.  It's kind of muted and not flashy but the houndstooth gives it a little something.  Find it here.

I also wanted to show you ladies my favorite cardigan...

...I bought this cardigan in crisp plum and military olive and they're the perfect layering pieces for fall.  They're super soft and wash and wear so well.  Right now, they're also 40% off !

And speaking of things I wear, apparently you ladies really liked my What I Wore Wednesday post from earlier in the week.  If you missed it, you can see it here.

I've taken come extra cute pics of my kiddos this week...they, of course, are my very favorite things from the week!

We were walking to dinner...Smith had a monkey on his back :).

A little blurry...but this is my girl and me headed to school.  

That sweet face!

And that sweet face too!

It was fireman day at school...he got to tour a fire truck and come home with a fancy new plastic fireman's hat.  He was so excited!!

I recently bought these Christmas plates and mugs to use this holiday season and they are ADORABLE!  My mom saw them and immediately wanted them too.

Set of four plates, all different scenes.

Set of four mugs, all different scenes.

I am showing you these today because I have a feeling you're going to see 4,000 pictures of my family eating off of the plates and drinking cocoa out of the mugs come December and they'll be out of, you might want to snag them now.

The plates are big enough to eat dinner off of and the mugs are the PERFECT size for coffee, tea or hot chocolate.  They are soooooo cute!!

***One last thing before I get to today's recipe...on Monday, I had a very yucky and harmful area removed from the middle of my back.  I am currently sporting a very long incision with dozens of stitches that is extremely painful and will leave a very nasty scar...this is the fourth area I've had removed from my back in the last 10 years...all because between the ages of 18 and 22, I thought it was cool to visit tanning beds.  Shame. On. Me.

I have since wised up and spent the last decade really trying to live a very healthy life...but the damage I did as a dumb teenager is affecting me today.  If you are not protecting your skin and especially if you're lying in tanning beds, I beg you to stop.  I took a picture of my back but Andrew said it was too graphic to blog...listen friends, it's ugly.  It's dangerous.  It can kill you.  Stop doing it.

That's my PSA for your Friday...take care of your skin and get skin checks regularly at the dermatologist! I never would have seen this spot in the center of my back...I had to go in for a skin check with my dermatologist and she found it (thankfully).  This is super dangerous stuff and I wish someone would have gotten in my face about it 15 years ago and told me I was stupid for doing it.***

Alrightly...on to dinner...

...tonight, it's my Tex-Mex Chicken Pot Pie.
It's a pot pie with a Tex-Mex flair.  Perfect for your weekend!

Happy Friday friends!!!

#shayeveryday2014 Week 42

We've had a really good (but kind of crazy and hectic) week around here.  Here's a look back at my Shay Every Day...

Day 288: I love, love, love, love walking home from school with Kensington.  We walk and she tells me all about her day.  It just might be my very favorite part of the day :).

Day 289: On this special day, both kids had parent involved activities at their schools...Smith had his science fair where we made slime (he loved it!) and Kensington had her community day where her class represented the importance of community participation (she "worked" in the post office).  I absolutely love both of their teachers and am always happy to see what they're doing in the classroom.

Day 290: Woohoo!  It's Fri-day!  My girl was home from school and we were about to head out on what we call "Shull Family Fun Night"...that means we eat Mexican food, play outside at home, get all cleaned up and in our pajamas and watch a movie on our bed.  We love Friday nights!

Day 291: Our annual visit to the local pumpkin patch was a success!

Day 292: I looked down in church and saw that Kensington was writing this.  Think she's excited about her new sister?!  Such a sweet girl!

Day 293: It was "red" day at school and I think she nailed her look :).  After I took this picture, we walked to school and I soaked up the chilly weather.  Yay for fall!

Day 294: Well, I had a little procedure done the day before and was not feeling my best, but there was no way I was missing my hair appointment!  A girl has her priorities, right?

What I Wore Wednesday

Every week, Erika does What I Wore Wednesday, so today, I thought I would give it a try.  Why not, right?  I typically wear the same "uniform" every day...

Boyfriend jeans + Booties + Outerwear = Daily Uniform 

I bought these grey jeans from Gap and just roll them up and go!  I love them as a fun alternative to blue denim.  I also love my Gap sweater (like version) and I love, love, love my buffalo plaid scarf.

 This is a selfie of me leaving the gym...I wish my jeans, jacket and scarf were still in stock but they're all three from years past.  That being said, my nude flats are like my favorite thing ever and still in stock.

I bought this polka dot sweatshirt/sweater thing simply because it was a sweatshirt/sweater thing.  Any excuse to wear a sweatshirt outside of my house, yes please!  

And then I topped it with a military jacket :).  Here is a like version (mine is from last year). know how much I love a scarf.  That being said, I've told you guys about 4 billion times that this is my very favorite scarf!!  I'm wearing it in the denim color but it's available in 28 other colors and they're 2 for $38.  Yes!  They're available in 29 colors and I love.them.all.

Exact flannel shirt (that I also love!!), exact jeans and exact belt.

Ahhh!  And the cutest little accessory in the world :).

There you go...a little something different for my Wednesday!  Thanks Erika for the inspiration!

On my foodie blog today!!  I have Mixed and Matched a Double Batch with Andrea!!  Come see which one of Andrea's recipes I slightly's so yummy and totally fall!!

Happy Hump Day!
