Friday Favorites 01/27/2017

Happy Friday friends!!!! 

I'm linking up with Erika, Narci and Andrea for Friday Favorites!! 

1. I mentioned our antenna over on my splurge vs. steal posts this week!! It's one of our new favorite things! We had a homemade antenna that we used for 5 years, but we haven't been able to get Fox since we moved. A few weeks ago we had dinner with our friends Rocky and Amy and they showed us their antenna, and Austin immediately ordered us a new one from amazon. Now we get Fox!! YAY! This is a big deal because lots of sports are shown on Fox. Thanks Amy and Rocky! 

2. My kid's preschool had a parent appreciation breakfast this week. 

They had a fabulous breakfast, and both boys made crafts! It's one of my favorite days of the school year!

3. Austin and I had a great time in Fort Worth this past weekend. 
Alone time with my guy is one of my favorite things!

4. When we were gone my mom came and stayed with our kids. She brought some books, and these  were the FAVORITES! They are really cute if you need some new books at your house. They are all interactive books.  They tell you to touch the dot, shake the book, clap your hands etc. 

5. My kids have SOOOO much energy! Playing outside is their favorite, and we've been doing it as much as possible. 

6. Did you check our What's Up Wednesday!? It's one of my favorite monthly posts! We've been really busy!
Ps. Did you watch This Is Us this week? It's my favorite! 

 Well that's it friends!! 

Happy weekend!!!

Fort Worth Anniversary Weekend

Austin and I celebrated our 8th Anniversary on November 29th. For our anniversary he suprised me with tickets to go see Annie at Bass Hall. The show was this past Saturday and we headed to Fort Worth right after lunch. 

We started with a little boot shopping! 

And then stopped by Whole Foods. This whole foods had a bar inside!! It was so cool. 

We stayed in a bed and breakfast near downtown.  

And when we pulled up it started POURING down rain! 

We stayed in a quaint little guest house right behind the main house. 

We cleaned up and headed to Sundance Square for dinner at Bird Cafe. 

Everything was served in shareable portions so we ordered 3 dishes to share. It was all delicious. 

The bird cafe is inside this neat old building!

After dinner we headed to Bass Performance Hall to see Annie. 

The show was amazing!! And we decided to go to Reata for dessert! 

On Sunday we woke up and headed inside the main house for breakfast! The spread was amazing! 

After breakfast we checked out the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens. 

We want to go back in the spring when everything is blooming. 

It was a fantastic 24 hours away!! Happy late anniversary to us!!

7. What I'm excited about...
Which leads me to what I'm excited about!!! We are taking the boys to see The Monster Truck Show!!! They are so excited. Last year it was such a hit that it was completely worth the money to do it again! 

8. What I'm watching/reading...

I just can't look away!! I love watching the big old train wreck! It's my guilty pleasure. 

This is Us 

 If you aren't watching this show, then you are missing out! 

I just grabbed this book from the library! 

9. What I'm listening to...
Every month I use the same answer here!!!! But we really just stream music from pandora so we listen to a variety of things! 

10. What I'm wearing...
I am loving this sweater dress!! I have it in a wine color and it's the best! The material is really soft and it is perfect with leggings and boots!

And how cute is this floral version! 

11. What I'm doing this weekend...
We are celebrating Austin's grandad's birthday!

12. What I'm looking forward to next month...

Austin and I are attending the Grace Filled Marriage conference at FBC Abilene. Dr. Tim Kimmel from Family Matters is the speaker. We are really excited to go! You can find more information here if you want to join us! 

13. What else is new...
A WHOLE LOT!!! But I don't have time to share it all today...stay tuned! 

14. Who is your favorite bachelor?

Let's start by acknowledging that there have been 21 seasons of the bachelor!! WHAT?! 

The obvious answer here is.... Sean Lowe. 

I mean right? He was wholesome and sweet. I am friends with his sister Shay. And he is married to the "winner" Catherine. Also they have the most ADORABLE baby. 

I also really enjoyed Jason's season!!
and Trista and Ryan because SERIOUSLY, who didn't love them!

But honestly I feel like watching the bachelor is a group sport. So with that being said, I feel like my very favorite seasons were the ones from 2004-2008 when I watched with my roommates in college. I have no idea who the bachelors even were but I loved the girl time!! 

Happy Wednesday Friends!!!
