Friday Faves

TGIF for real this week you guys! On Tuesday afternoon it felt like I had already worked through Thursday, so you can imagine how "off" the rest of the week's felt. Definitely happy it's Friday and the weekend is right around the corner!
My faves this week are:

{1} New Essie color
I mentioned it yesterday, but this pretty Essie polish arrived at my house on Wednesday evening and I was super pumped! It's the perfect cranberry shade for the Fall! It's called Bahama Mama and is super similar to In the Lobby.

{2}My Husband's Home!
My husband got home last night from a work trip earlier than planned after being gone since Sunday. It's been so nice to have him home and to get to snuggle last night! Also, Mr. Wonderful had stopped at the Yankee Candle outlet when he was away and brought home a delicious candle scent (sugar and spice), picked out entirely on his own. It's the little things :) Our house will definitely be Fall-scent ready!

{3} Blate
Last night Christy and I had an awesome HH blate--we went back to Tupelo Honey (the scene of one of our previous lunch blates) and partook in some beverages and yummy small plates (pecan crusted goat cheese balls,  and warm pimento cheese--I was basically in cheese lover heaven!) We ended up staying there for 3 hours--time flies with good food, good drinks and a good friend--always a fantastic night!
Next time: a double blate with the husbands again!

{4} GIF Keyboard
If you haven't downloaded the GIF keyboard, just stop everything and go do it now. It is the best addition to texting (minus the middle finger which is supposed to be a new emoji)--I can't tell you how hard I've laughed with some of the text convos I've had lately. 
(And speaking of gifs....)

{5} Funnies
because at the end of the week, sometimes you just need a laugh or two:
When you're attempting to make a schedule while also doing the rest of your job at a school

When your resume says that you're great at multi-tasking:
{via}
When you make a schedule that works for the 50 kids you see and then someone tells you about a new kid to add to the list:
{via} am I smiling yet???
Getting in your car to drive home at the end of a Friday

Happy Friday and happy weekend, loves! I hope you have a nice, relaxing, fun weekend to recover from the week!
Catch ya on Monday!

  4. MG is so sweet. I want that gif keyboard but I don't like that they have access to all your text messages. And I know we already talked about it but this HAS been the longest week ever. Happy Friday!

  31. Love that nail polish! It is really perfect for fall. I bet those candles smell amazing...my mom sent me a care package last week and she included a pumpkin and apple candle in it. There is no way faster to get into the fall spirit than lighting a pumpkin or spice scented candle!
