I got to see Katie on Wednesday who was in town for work, another perk of living in Orlando. It was a quick visit, but so nice considering we haven’t seen each other in just over a year!

A very interesting read…. I am becoming more and more convinced that a minimalist lifestyle is the way to live.

I know football just started and we are absolutely loving it, but I am already looking forward to Super Bowl LI considering that Lady Gaga announced she will be playing the halftime show! Little Monsters, rejoice, indeed.

It’s that time of year again when all of the good TV shows are returning and the new ones are starting. We watched the first episode of This Is Us and I am in. love. It’s already been called “the new Parenthood” and it is and I still love it. If you haven’t watched it yet, definitely check out the pilot episode.

With the kids’ birthdays quickly approaching, I am feeling all the emotions about having a three year old and a five year old. I stumbled across this article this week and it really hit home. While I sometimes miss having a tiny baby, I am happy to leave behind the baby and toddler days.

t h r e e

It’s officially fall, ya’ll! I’m not afraid to admit that I’ve had my fall decor up since Labor Day, but now I can officially embrace the fall season…even if the high is 90 degrees today. We are gearing up for a fun October and looking forward to a fun fall season! I think I need to get a Pumpkin Spice Latte this weekend.

Amazing.

after work on friday, we headed over to celebrate wyatt’s third birthday!

Untitled

so much fun with these crazy kids!

Untitled

we were at the soccer field first thing on saturday morning. crosby thinks he is on the team and will warm up, do drills, and shake hands at the end of the game, but during the game he is so sad that he can’t play. he had big crocodile tears on saturday when the game started and he had to sit on the sidelines.

Untitled

the little monsters had two games in a row on saturday, which is crazy for a group of four year olds, but they did such a great job!

Untitled

on saturday afternoon, we had a dinner party with copycat restaurant recipes. it was so fun!

Untitled

we had a ten mile run this morning. it was hard and humid. when is the fall weather coming?

Untitled

the kids spent a lot of time on the patio in their swim suits today.

Untitled

of course this one refused to nap today when greg was at work all day. i sat on the couch for a good twenty minutes and just watched him play so sweetly by himself while kenley was sleeping.

Untitled

we went to the park for a little bit, but it’s just too hot for that nonsense. the rest of the day these two played together so nicely while i got a lot done around the house. we finished the day and celebrated national cheeseburger day at smashburger for dinner.

we had a great weekend! how was yours?!

I know that I have mentioned our love for Sugarcrash Kids before, but I shared a little bit more over on Orlando Moms Blog this week. I also haven’t shared that fun news that the kids were interviewed at the end of one of the podcasts this season! They are in the BUGS!!! episode and you can listen to it on their website. They are at the 17:55 mark if you want to have a listen. They were so excited when they heard themselves while listening to the podcast.

Last week, Misha mentioned her love for the Cat & Jack line at Target and I couldn’t agree more! I was thrilled to get to buy some itty bitty baby boy clothes for a good friend this week. I had so much fun browsing all of the adorable baby items. I still stand by one of our favorite and most efficient baby items ever: the inverted zipper pajamas!

the afternoon rainstorm delayed our bike ride and run, but we got out there as soon as the rain cleared.

they are getting fast enough for me to run beside them and actually get in a good run. we ended up going almost two miles!

Untitled

we made it a point to ride through all of the puddles. the kids got soaked and loved it!  we were all sweaty since it was so humid, so we went back to the house and jumped in the pool!

Untitled

we ended the night by eating frozen pizza for dinner and playing in the fort in the living room after this one took a spill.

Happy Friday and welcome back to Friday I’m in Love. I am so excited to get this series started again now that summer has come and gone. I am also happy to be back on the blogging train. If you’re new here, each Friday I share what I’m loving that week. Most of the time, it’s the little things that mean the most. Let’s get started.

Friday I'm in Love Linky Party

o n e

I’ve been reading (for fun) lately since I am not taking any classes this semester. I am currently reading Make It Happen thanks to a recommendation from a friend. The book is really good and very eye opening. I have also started following the author on Instagram and you should too. You can find her @laracasey.

t w o

I am also reading some great newsletters that show up in my inbox. The first is The Drafting Desk and it was created by an acquaintance here in Orlando. Subscribe and follow @thedraftingdesk on Instagram. The second one that I am really enjoying is Simple Families.

t h r e e

This is probably not surprising, but I love school supplies, planners, stationary, all the pretty things. Emily Ley released her fall line this week and it is all so pretty. I ordered the icon sticker set and am anxiously waiting to put them all over my Simplified Planner. Also, Le Pen fine-line colored pens are currently on Groupon! I am so excited to try them, I have heard such great things about them and am so happy to have found them so cheap!

f o u r

It’s September and fall is in the air! Football is back and all of my fall decor is already out. I’ve already had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks and it was far less humid this week, which is probably just a big tease. I know most of you are probably hanging on to summer as long as possible, but fall is a mindset here in Florida and I am ready for it! It just makes me so happy.
