Oh hey, Friday

We are kicking off a 4 day weekend over here!  Conor took today off so that we can beat the Labor Day traffic and get right into the mountains for.... Liam's 1st camping trip!  We won't be car camping or campsite camping... Oh no, we will be wilderness camping!  Just a nice 3 mile hike to a lake where we will be packing in all our gear.  Conor will have Liam and as much as we can shove into that pack, while I'll be hauling the rest.  It's only for one night, but I'm still nervous.  Excited, but anxious!  Wish us luck and pray that I don't pee all over my pants while attempting to do so in the woods!  Here's my weekly five; thanks to the two beautiful hosts Karli & Amy!

 

-ONE-
I hit up one of B&BW candle sales last week, so I could stock up for Fall.  I went with Leaves & Vanilla Chai and I cannot wait to start burning them!  I have a rule: no Fall stuff til September 1st!  But come Monday, I will be going pumpkin crazy!


-TWO-
I of course ordered Liam some Halloween pajamas, which will also be acceptable to wear come Monday!  I love this pair, which are totally gender neutral!




-THREE-
Jessi posted about this Frye booties, and I just can't get them out of my head!  I never thought I would jump on the ankle bootie trend, but I am seriously considering these.  That big price tag is holding me back for right now.  I love Frye boots and would be more than happy to add another pair to my closet!



-FOUR-
I think I have decided on Liam's Halloween costume...  My little Liamasaurus will be a dinosaur!!!  There are plenty of designs on Pinterest, but this one is my favorite.  I will probably follow her tutorial but add my own little flair to it!  Can't wait to purchase some fabric and get started on this!



-FIVE-
Right now is the perfect time for peaches in Utah!  I plan on buying a few baskets at the farmer's market this weekend.  Next step will be to pin a good handle of recipes on Pinterest.  I definitely want to make a traditional peach pie, and I'm eyeing this recipe from Smitten Kitchen.  Anyone have a favorite peach recipe they want to send my way?




T.G.I.F. friends!

  1. I mentioned you today is my guest post over at Sweet Turtle Soup:) I was asked which blogger I would probably get along with in real life, and I said you! This post solidifies that answer...I picked up those candles last weekend. I am guilty of already burning them though. I am also in love with Frye boots. I bought two pairs last year and wore the heck out of them. Definitely pricey, but money well spent:) I hope you guys have a great time camping. I can't wait to read about it. Happy four-day-weekend!

  3. Oh wow good luck camping and have fun! I am not an outdoorsy person at all and camping scares me. I wish I liked it more because people seem to love it! I also picked some Halloween pjs up for Noah... I can't wait for fall!

    1. Halloween isn't typically my thing, but having Liam gets me all sorts of excited for it! Now if only the jammies came in my size too!

  5. Haha! Ok, this is really weird, but here is a link to something I used when we used to backpack camp a lot. It definitely saved me the worry of having to pee outside, which I hate to do! Kind of random, but thought I'd share. ;) http://www.amazon.com/Go-Girl-Female-Urination-Lavender/dp/B003BEDUS6/ref=sr_1_32?ie=UTF8&qid=1409320549&sr=8-32&keywords=women%27s+outdoor+pee

    Hope y'all have a wonderful time!! I'm so looking forward to the day when we can get back out and camp!

  8. I see Shelly beat me to letting you know she mentioned you in her guest post today!
    Aria was a dino last year!!! I love your choice =) I looove scented candles in the fall. And Halloween pjs! I really want something with a pumpkin on the butt. Aria had a pair last year that I died over every time she wore them. I just need that cuteness in my life again. Those boots are perfection, and I love a good ankle bootie! but my gosh that price tag is insane. I hope you are having the best time camping right now!

  9. OOoo I wonder if the sale is still going on? I'll have to swing by the mall to see. I'm in need of a new pumpkin candle for this year. Owen is actually in Halloween jammies right now, but only because I never stopped putting him in them from last year! I bought them big and now they're getting a little snug. Liam will be the cutest dino ever!

  10. I've been struggling with what Carter will be for Halloween! LOVE that little Dino outfit! I'm not skilled when it comes to sewing but the tutorial looks easy enough so I may have to give it a try! Thank you for the great idea!

  11. Can't wait to hear how camping went..!! Oh yes, peeing out there is so fun, huh?! :)
    I need to stock up on some Fall candles, those scents are probably some of my fav!!
    I wasn't sure about ankle boots either, but got some last year maybe? and they're great, pretty versatile. Those Frye ones are beauties!!
    That dino costume will be too dang cute, can't wait to see.

  12. The dinosaur costume is too cute. I still can't decide what my daughter will be. So many fun choices.
