Friday Favorites

Yay!  We finally made it to Friday.  Time to share some favorites from this week.

I have expressed my love for Matilda Jane Clothing several times.  This week Hallie wore a new favorite dress from Matilda Jane.  I know I'm bias, but I think she's so stinkin cute!

We pair lots of Matilda Jane with some of our favorite shoes, converse.  The school playground is not kind to these shoes.  Hallie comes home with black on the toes every. single. time. she wears them.

I'm linking up with Kelly's Korner to share my favorite cleaning trick for these dirty toes.  It's so simple.  Two words...MAGIC ERASER.  Yep, that's it.  Just use a magic eraser.  I spent no more than two minutes on cleaning these shoes up.  What a difference!

This week I received an unexpected note and gift card.  This was absolutely a favorite.  I've had some trials come up in the past couple of weeks.  The sender had no clue about my recent struggles.  This was a great pick-me-up.  This makes me want to make an effort to send notes or little gifts to others.  You never know what others may be going through and how much of a blessing you may be.  

We got Hallie's school pictures this week.  School pictures are always a favorite.  However, I did get a little sad when I compared the current picture to previous ones.  Baby girl, stop growing up!

Bryson and I had to attend middle school orientation for him to pick his classes for next year.  The students have to pick either band or choir.  Bryson chose band and that was a favorite for this former clarinet playing band member.  We go in a couple weeks to test out different instruments.  Right now, he has his heart set on the trumpet.

I am a little embarrassed to mention my next favorite from the week.  Bryson downloaded Plants vs. Zombies app, and I am hooked!  Please tell me I'm not the only one that plays your kid's games.   

Well, that's it folks.  Happy Friday, and I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

  1. Magic erasers can conquer all!! Love those cute shoes. Have a great weekend :)

  2. girl magic erasers are the best!! So glad i came across your blog through the link up! happy friday and hope you'll stop by mine :)

  3. That dress is adorable! And I need to try the magic eraser on that part of the shoes. It looks like it works so well and I totally never thought of it. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Love that dress with Chucks! Super cute style. =)

  5. Yay, you're back! I've been missing your blog. I never thought to use a magic eraser on my kid's converse. I usually toss them in the washer every month or so, but the magic eraser is faster (and probably gentler) than washing them. Great tip.
    On a side may not even remember this...but you commented on my blog a while back that you were planning a trip to DFW this summer and asked me some things to do. After thinking about it for a while, I decided to turn it into a blog post...then a whole series of things to do in Texas. So, thank you for inspiring me to write that post. Ha! I posted it yesterday, if you're still interested. Have a great weekend!!

  6. I used to be obsessed with plants vs zombies - not sure if I'm happy or sad that you just reminded me, since now I totally want to play!

    1. The struggle is real! I'm playing the second version. I'm determined to just hurry up and beat all the levels so I can be done with it.

  7. I would have never thought to use a magic eraser. Great idea. And yes, I most definitely have to try out my kids games, and show them how cool I still am. ;)

  8. Magic Eraser to the rescue! Have a super weekend!

  9. Magic Erasers are my secret weapon for just about anything! And that Matilda Jane dress is SO darling!

  10. Magic Erasers are seriously miracle workers. Have a great weekend!
