ONE || Pumpkinfest
If you’re looking for a fun family outing this weekend, be sure to head to downtown Franklin for their annual Pumpkinfest
celebration! It’s one of the best fall events, complete with costume contests, bouncy houses, face painting, live entertainment, arts and crafts, and street festival food [my fav], it’s a win for everyone! We will be there bright and early in the morning with the girls all dressed up and looking their most festive in their witch costumes… and best of all, it’s free with plenty of shopping to keep the adults occupied, too.
TWO || Toddlers and Discipline.. I’m Losing This Battle
Mom fail to report here as I am a TOTAL pushover when it comes to discipline. I get so frustrated with myself, as I know continuity is key and I need to be actively reminding myself to “stay strong” and “be firm” when the girls act out. I found this helpful infographic on Pinterest the other day and bookmarked it as a tool to help me stick to it… hoping it can help others out there going through the terrible twos [and threes] as well. P.S. I am HORRIBLE at bribing and caving into the whining… oops. Also, tell me what works for you??? I need all the assistance I can get!
THREE || WINTER WEAR
Chilly temps aren’t too far away and I’m already on the hunt for winter wear to keep me warm… it’s been a bit since I’ve invested in some new outerwear and I’ve got my eyes on a few new options [especially these for under $250 via Andrew Marc
], for both everyday and dressy occasions. Some in the staple black and one or two in rich, dark tones that work well for all color combos, too. Loving these pics and the price point on all is VERY budget savvy!
FOUR || Draper James
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, I’m sure you’ve seen Reese Witherspoon’s dreamy new line called Draper James. From clothing, accessories, gifts and more, this native Nashvillian’s flagship store JUST opened in 12th South and I am itching to get there… luckily, I got invited to come to the grand opening next week and I’d be totally lying if I said I wasn’t secretly hoping Reese just MIGHT happen to be there… southern fan girl right here! Preppy looks with classic silhouettes and just the right touches of color and pattern = perfection in my book!
FIVE || Organize the Coat Closet
I’m on an organizational kick right now so if something doesn’t serve a purpose, hasn’t been worn in 2+ years, or is taking up space, it’s going going gone… poor Jeff says I’m a crazy cleanout lady, but it’s true. These images are serving as the perfect inspiration for what I’m looking to do to our foyer coat closet and actually make it a usable space that has function. More baskets + bins and a trip to Target, The Container Store, and Homegoods is in my future!
That’s it for this week’s roundup! Be sure to head over to April and Christina’s blogs to show those amazing women some love AND link-up with us below!!
