Friday Favorites

Welp, here it is.  The first Friday favorites round up of the year happening on the last Friday in January... better late than never! 

1. Old Navy Tall. I am not considered a tall girl, necessarily.  I am not short, but I would say that at 5'7, I am fairly average.  Do I need to shop in the tall section? No. Do I shop in the tall section for tops? Absolutely. I prefer a longer top and Old Navy Tall is perfection (especially for tunics!). I snagged this top date night and the length was perfection.

2. Date Night.  Did you know the last time I went to a bar/restaurant with my husband and had a drink was September 2016? And the last time we had a date, May 2017.  There is something seriously wrong with that. My friend Jessica put an end to my date night drought and watched BOTH of my children.  This was the first time someone other than Cheryl has watched both the kiddos and, honestly, Jess is on the very very short list of people I would feel comfortable leaving both kiddos with.

B and I had the best time and the kiddos had a blast with Jessica's kids too.

3. Isla and Lily. My love affair with this sweet shop continues.  My (former) work-wife Jordan delivered baby #2 (the sweetest baby girl) a week ago today and I could not be more thrilled for her. Adding to that excitement, Jessica from Isla and Lily had some extra Chatty Hearts fabric so I was able to order a newborn gown for Chloe.  Bonus: the girls will have matching outfits and I get to experience a glimpse of what my life would have looked like with twinning little girls haha I cannot wait to get them!

4. I am officially counting down the days until I hop on a plane and take the kiddos to see my parents for a week. [29 days in case you were wondering!]  I haven't seen my Dad since July and I haven't seen my Mama since August.  I cannot wait for them to see how big the kiddos have gotten.  I also cannot wait to see Everett's Fairy Godmother (as Nat likes to call her), Kerri.  Some of my favorite people on the planet live in Florida so it will be so much fun! I saw all that to say this...

Last summer I ordered RoadID bracelets for the kids and I am really happy that I did. This will be my first time flying solo with both kiddos so it will be nice to have just a little extra piece of mind knowing that Natalie has an ID bracelet on if, God forbid, we get separated.  She loves wearing her ID bracelet and the silicone band assures me that it is not going anywhere.  The ID plate is made of surgical stainless steal which won't scratch no matter how tough she plays and it's saltwater safe (hello beach ready).  There are a bunch of different band options for both genders and RoadID sends several sizes in each color/pattern so that the bracelet really grows with you.

5. Panera Breakfast.  What is a Friday Favorites without food, amiright?  Panera recently started offering fried eggs on their breakfast sandwiches.

There are no words to describe the perfection of this sandwich. None. And I am really looking forward to a post swim class breakfast date with my big girl on Sunday so that I can have it again. Yum.
