It's finally Friday and to say I wasn't counting down to this day would be a big fat lie. Not that we have plans this weekend but knowing hubby is home all day Saturday and Sunday make me happy. Plus it makes my life a little bit easier knowing I can rest a little while he tends to Cailee. Being pregnant while taking care of a toddler is no joke I have no idea how other mommies with multiple kids do it.
It feels like forever ever ago since I've done a Friday favorites post. So let's jump right to it shall we. This Friday I decided to share some of my favorite recent purchases for myself and the little one. Enjoy!

With Thanksgiving just around the corner (yes!!! can't wait to eat more stuffing!) these two new additions to Cailee's book collection have definitely gotten her into the holiday. Last year we bought her The Night Before Thanksgiving and while she loved being read to, she still didn't grasp the concept of the holiday. This year is a whole new ball game, add in her favorites Fancy Nancy and Pinkalicious and we hit the jackpot.

With the weather finally cooling down it is completely justifiable to purchase winter clothes. During our weekly Target run I found two pieces I just needed to have. The beanie is a color I normally wouldn't wear but it just called to me. Plus it was on sale at the time boo-yah! I also found this thermal with the cutest fox pattern for 40% off!

I was in major need of a beauty pick me a few days ago so I decided to try out two new products. I have heard many great things about both of these items and so far I haven't been disappointed. The butter gloss in eclair by NYX is great and doesn't feel like your typical lip gloss. Goes on smoothly and doesn't feel like a ton of product on your lip and lasts very long! The blush in peach by NYX is a great color. It gives you just enough color without making it look like you have on a bunch of blush.

Clothes for the girls
Cailee and Charlotte just got their first pair of matching shirts!!! I promised myself I wouldn't go matching crazy with the girls and so far I have kept good with that promise. Seeing as how this is the first and only thing they have that matches :) I am sure all bets will be off during the holidays!

I love Christmas but have absolutely no desire to rush past Thanksgiving (it's a holiday too...people!!!). However, that doesn't stop a grandma from buying some goodies for grandbabies! While visiting the Grove a few weeks ago we stopped into one of our favorites Pottery Barn Kids and the second we saw these Elf on the Shelf items, I knew we wouldn't be leaving empty handed. My mom bought her girls (even Charlotte!) some goodies!!! They are currently hiding in the kitchen waiting to make their debut on our annual Elf arrival breakfast!
Linking up with the ladies behind the 5 on Friday!
What are your plans for the weekend?! We will hopefully wrap up Cailee's big girl room and visit our fish friends at the mall :)
