Friday Favorites

This week was a short work week for me, but I am sooo thankful for the weekend. After having Monday off, work Tuesday morning was met with the realization that my father packed my work computer into my brother's car for his move to another state. Enter hysterical me here. Fortunately my employer is awesome and hooked me up with a temporary computer this week, and also fortunately my parents are moving the rest of my brother's things down to Iowa this weekend so I will have my computer back come Monday. Still, this weekend is welcome and I am excited to have some time to recover from a hectic week!

1. The Nordstrom Sale

Obviously as a non-cardholder, I am late to the game, but you can bet I stayed up late to pull the trigger on a few purchases now that it has opened to us [non cardholder] peasants. This and this made it into my cart. And now I am all sorts of excited for fall. We haven't even had a true heat wave in Minnesota this summer, but I am already wishing away the 80 degree weather. Sunny, breezy, and 60 year round would make my heart so happy. If any of you know where I can mo0ve to make that happen, I am all ears!

2. Water bottle theft
This week this guy discovered my water bottles and decided they are superior to his sippy cups. I really don't want to share but my gosh is he adorable!

3. Long Tall Sally

I have never tried this store (yes, I am 6 feet tall and have never checked out the tall girl store). This past week though, I finally took the time to check out their website and found these babies on clearance for $29! They are on their way to my house right now :-)

4. These pretty earrings
I have seen a number of other bloggers post about these and just received them in black and pink yesterday. I love them, and I also love the price tag. Blogging has brought me to so many new trends and items I woudl have otherwise not found. So, thank you all!

5. Seasonal Baby Jams

I have made it pretty clear I am all about the baby pajamas. On Monday when we made our way to the Mall of America I couldn't resist picking these jammies up in Carter's. First off, I have been missing the footie jams and the fleece jams. Second, both are all about the sports and have me so excited for some lazy Sundays watching football and eating soup, chili, and hot dip. Have I mentioned that I LOVE fall??

6. Photoshoots

We are having family portraits taken tomorrow because we are coming up on little man's first birthday in two short weeks. I am so excited to document our little family of three. Things are always changing and who knows where we will be at next year at this time. Another baby? A new house? Perhaps exactly where we are with little changed? Regardless, there is something so special about taking the time to capture how wonderful our lives are in this very moment. I am crossing my fingers that the weather cooperates and we don't get rained on!

What is everyone else loving this week? Is anyone else as excited for fall as I am!?
