This Friday bring with it a bit of extra happy because:

a) it means we are leaving for Texas in a WEEK! and.....

b) it means my hubby is moving into his new role on MONDAY!

Thankful for these things.

a few of my favorite things......

01 || I'm making this french beef stew for our celebratory dinner for J tonight. over garlic mashed potatoes. comfort, comfort, comfort.

02 || the smell and feel of a crisp fall wind.

03 || I have all the heart eyes for this sign for my Little Bit's room. 

04 || wearing matching leopard print shoes with my girl.

05 || ready to plunge into harry potter and the chamber of secrets. do any of you have a favorite in the series? 

06 || that only having one car means there are many days that Little and I get to pick J up from work. 

07 || everything is 40%-60% off at JCrew Factory and 40% off at LOFT right now.

08 || spur of the moment dinner outings that involve cheeseburgers and french fries.

09 || I'm in rather serious need of a winter coat and I'd love y'all's suggestions and opinions of favorite store choices, styles, colors, etc. I'm a bit picky and I think I might be overthinking it just a tad........

10 || that every day little asks "is tomo-woah the day we yeave for Texas, mommy?" 

11 || "a child should not face the challenge of living up to your expectations." -- a real, honest, gospel-focused article from Russell Moore on adoption: "Don't Protect Yourself From Adoption" 

12 || the fact that this truth never has, never does, and never will cease to be.......

"But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great if your faithfulness. "The LORD is my portion," says my soul, "therefore I will hope in him." The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD." Lamentations 3:21-26 

I hope you lovelies have the best of Fridays and the coziest of weekends. Grateful for each one of you who shares this little bit of internet with me. 

Happy Friday!
