Friday Favorites 9/30

Holy Moly it's the last day of September; that can not be possible.  We are very excited for this weekend and the upcoming month!  This weekend we have a very special wedding that Kevin and Emily have the honor of being in and we can't wait to celebrate.  Monday is Kevin's birthday and the month is already filled with exciting things!

As usual our week was filled with fun.  It was a true week of work hard, play hard.

It started last Friday evening with Emily's first school carnival where the girls partied hard!  They loved playing games, dancing, and singing karaoke.  I died and went to heaven when I asked Emily what game she wanted to play and she said, "Mom can I just dance?"  Yes baby girl you can dance, dance, dance!

This girls has no fear!!!!  The big kids were knocking her down and practically trampling over her but she wasn't going to give up.  She climbed all the huge inflatables and tackled them like a champ.

Emily had another cooking class this weekend where she made corn dogs, potato skins, and churros.

Have you started thinking about your Christmas Cards?!?!  I know you're thinking school just started are you kidding me!  But it's October tomorrow and it's honestly not too early to start looking.  I ordered our Christmas Cards last year from Tiny Prints and was so in love with how they turned out.  I'm already scoping out their website for their latest cards and this week they're having a fabulous deal that you should check out.  Click this banner for the coupon code.

We also were so excited to celebrate Jerome's 1st birthday at the Little Gym on Saturday.  Madi stayed home to nap but Emily had a blast and the party was a super cute camping theme.  Thank you so much Silveira's for including us!

Saturday night we went with some of our best friends to the Garth Brooks concert.  I almost have no words-it was EPIC!  He was born an entertainer and I enjoyed every second of his show.

I was very honored to be featured on Kindred Together this week.  I had to answer some questions for the feature which you can find HERE.

I am a CAR (California Association of Realtors) Director for my local association which means I attend business meetings several time a year to lobby for our industry and gain a ton of knowledge that I get to share with other Realtors back at home and my clients.  I am so blessed that my mom and Madi always travel with me.  This started this way a couple of years ago because I was still nursing Madi; now it just works for us.  In some off time during the meetings we got some fun time in.

My mom took Madi to the Long Beach Aquarium where they had lots of fun!

One of the best benefits of the blogging community and social media is connecting with other people.  I've met some wonderful women here and feel like I have friends all over the country.  As women I feel we are charged with supporting and uplifting one another.  It's in helping others grow that we grow as well.  "I was raised to believe that there's enough sun for everyone."  I'm sharing a little sunshine with you this morning but sharing some wonderful women with you.  You can check out my IG to meet these lovely ladies. 

I had another feature this week that I'm proud of on Gav + Ro.  Kelly, the author hosts The BLANK Mom Series where women share what kind of mom they are.  I have tagged myself the BOSS Mom and share all about what that means to me.  Check it out HERE.
