Friday Favorites

Happy Friday Friends! It has been a very long short week here at school. Lots of meetings & after school events - including Senior Night tonight. I will likely be a sobbing mess saying goodbye to girls I've coached since they were in 6th grade. But I have so much to look forward to as well because my parents are coming to town! This is the longest we've ever gone without seeing them, so I'm super excited for a day out with my mom tomorrow! 

Today I'm linking up with Andrea to share my Friday Favorites! Enjoy! 

First up, I just can't say enough good things about the new lines that Target has developed! I was really nervous when I read about the shake up, but I really think it's been a positive. Cat & Jack is a HUGE staple in both of the girls' closets & how cute are these boots that I found for them? 

They're like sneakers & boots at the same time! Perfect for New York weather! I'm also totally obsessed with Pillowfort & am using that line in Ella's upcoming big girl bedroom makeover!

My next favorite of the week is the Scholastic Book Fair! I am a huge reader & always have been. I remember how excited I used to get when the book fair came to town - especially because I lived in the middle of nowhere so Barnes & Noble wasn't really an option. Now that I'm a teacher, it's so much fun to see my students get excited too. My favorite book from the book fair...

Thelma the Unicorn - hands down the cutest little story I've read since Uni the Unicorn. And yes, we have a thing for unicorns at our house. But both books are adorable stories about owning who you are & not making any apologies for it. I think that's a lesson little girls need to hear over & over again.  

Wednesdays are always a favorite of mine because they are my "night off" from cheer. I get to pick up Ella from school & take her to dance class. Seeing her in her tutu & tap shoes is always one of my favorites! 

On Monday, Ella broke her new glasses & I was not very happy. So, Eric took them in to see if they could be fixed & #hallelujah - they were  still under warranty! So coming home Thursday night & seeing her little face back in her big girl glasses was a favorite of mine! 

And if the new glasses weren't exciting enough last night, our September book order arrived too! We spent some time snuggled up on the couch together reading, which was exactly what my mama heart needed! I just love watching Ella identify her sight words as we read & listening to Livy try to copy her! 

Have a Happy Friday Everyone!
