Happy Friday. This week has been a week that I will never forget. Ups and downs, here's what's been happening.

When Cents of Style contacted me a few weeks ago with the news that they were going to have a "Life is..." line of shirts for this Fashion Friday, I picked this shirt because, you know, boy mom... But the past few days have been a whirlwind. My dad was diagnosed with Leukemia this week and it's definitely turned my world upside down. He will be undergoing treatment for the next month, so please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. 

They have different shirts with different messages available this week. Which one speaks to you? Use the code LIFEIS1 to get your tee for $15.95 plus free shipping.

I feel silly going on with this post and the "highlights" of my week after such heavy news, but I know my dad always loves to read what's up with us and the boys, so I'm continuing on.


I mentioned a little while ago that Wesley was having a tough transition to preschool. Well, things are great now, and the other day he actually cried while we were leaving because he was going to miss school! So, I will say that is a success.


It's homecoming week at school, and one day was Twin Day. Some of my friends and I all decided to go with our crazy LuLaRoe leggings and black tunics!


I love that even though our school is getting so big, it still feels like a small town. They had a homecoming parade last night and the boy just loved it.


Calvin was the sick kid in our family this week. He was down with a cold and fever, so I stayed home with him on Monday. It was nice to have some extra snuggles, but he was a little ornery, too!

So, that's my week. How was yours?

As I put together this outfit Sunday to wear to church, I was going to pull out my leopard pants, but I realized if I wanted to share an outfit you could recreate, leopard pants aren't something everyone has in their closet. Instead, I pulled out a solid colored pair of pants. After I did that, I kind of felt like my outfit was blah and really needed a little pattern, so I added my leopard flats and felt satisfied.

Going to Target to do my little $10 shopping splurge every month is always so fun. I shopped at the beginning of September, so I was still in back to school mode. School supplies were definitely calling my name, and I had a little itch for Halloween decor, too. Here's what I didn't buy:

I'm a sucker for a new cup or mug. This floral one was so pretty, but I figured I need to use the ones I have. The rainbow highlighters looked totally fun, and they had quite a few little art sets on clearance. The dollar spot also had out its Halloween decor! So, so tempting!

So, what did I end up with?
Happy Friday! I am so ready for the weekend! Aren't you? Here are some highlights from our week!

Friday night Russ and I had a date night. We went to the most delicious New York style pizza place called Taste of New York Pizza. So delicious I'm still drooling over it today! I had chicken bacon ranch pizza and Russ had lasagna pizza.

There's a quote from somewhere that defines boys as "noise with dirt on it." With three boys plus my husband in my house, that phrase can't be more true. Messes, grime, stickiness, and all are always present in our house. Sometimes the normal cleaners I have around the house don't cut it, and I need a little more. I've always been a fan of Goo Gone. I remember taking the little bottle to college to get tape residue off my dorm walls. I LOVE that it now comes in a spray gel. It takes its ability to reach those sticky, grimy situations to a whole new level.
