Friday Favorites (According to the Kids)

Happy Friday!  It's been a wonderful week here.  The weather has been gorgeous.  We've been outside as much as possible and making plans for a fun Fall.

I thought it would be interesting to document Friday Favorites this week from the kid's perspectives.  I made a list of their highlights to share with you today.  

1. Notre Dame won their 2nd game & we enjoyed lots of game day food.  The kids love wearing their Notre Dame gear, cheering for the Irish and doing push ups when they score a touch down.  Can't wait until we can take them to a game one day!

2. We got cute Halloween plates from Walmart!  If you're in the market, they are just $1.48 each and are really sweet.  I typically like to pick up the Pottery Barn Kids holiday plates, but they are the same design that they released last year.

3. We drove down to my sister's house for my nieces 8th birthday party on Sunday.  It was tie dye in Paris themed.  We all enjoyed our first tie dyeing experience, loved all the desserts my sister made and had fun hanging out with our family.  We came home with a box of our very own macarons.

Olive and my mom in matchy matchy outfits.
Aren't these the cutest favors?  They were coconut, brownie, lemon, animal cookies, vanilla and strawberry.  It was fun to try so many flavors.

4. Haircuts by Mom!  I cut everyone's hair this week - Fletcher, Olive & Kevin.  Saved us tons of time and money going to a salon.  Fletcher yelled to the neighbor, "Hey, Guys!  I definitely have on clothes under this cape!"  haha  Olive requested a bob after letting her hair grow for the past few months.

5. We hung Leo's swing so now all three kids can swing together.  He adores the swing, and always holds on for dear life.

6. Double A+ week for Olive's tests at school.

7. Kevin brought home Insomnia Cookies a couple times.  Grown ups - Educators get 6 free cookies with any purchase this month.  Their Chocolate Chunk Cookies are AMAZING.
8. Playgrounds.  We met friends at several different playgrounds this week.

9. Matching tie dye shirts.  I love how they turned out!

10. If Leo could talk, he's say that our last favorite of the week was that the last three nights he's only woken up once in the middle of the night or slept through the night.  Hallelujah!  It's amazing the pep you have in your step when you are well rested :)

Linking up with Momfessionals
