Four on Friday!

Happy Friday! Big weekend ahead for us — tomorrow I will be wrestling two toddlers through the airport and onto a flight down to Florida! Yay! I am so happy to be flying this time and NOT driving — hallelujah. However, I’ll be flying down with the kiddos, our bags, the stroller, a venti Starbucks and one billion snacks — solo. Matt has an annual golf weekend lined up with his long time high school best friends in Ohio and then will be meeting us down in Florida…and thankfully flying back all together. Anyway, I need to go pack for 3 so let’s get down to it with four things… 

one. Last weekend we devoured The Oktoberfeast Burger, our latest outrageous burger from Burgabox. These ginormous 8 oz burgers were smothered with beer & mustard cheese and topped with German kraut. So good y’all, so so so good. Definitely keep the Burger of the Month in mind as a Christmas gift for the person who has everything!

two. Last Sunday we took our Christmas card photos! The kids were so fun during the shoot this year and of course they looked absolutely adorable. I can’t wait to see how our pictures turned out, but in the meantime, I thought I’d share our outfits in case you’re looking for a little inspiration for your holiday card pictures!

Thomas: Skinny Dress Pants (on sale) // Shawl-Collar Sweater (on sale) //  Shoes | Caroline: Plaid Dress // Booties (on sale) | Matt: Shirt (on sale) // Pants (on sale) | Christina: Dress // Tassel Horse Necklace // Booties Sold Out


three. You remember that awkward wall niche I didn’t know how to decorate in our foyer? I made the dreaded Ikea run last week and scooped up this pretty snake plant and pot! It’s pretty and it purifies air — win, win!

four.{GIVEAWAY}! True story, when Laura was redesigning my blog we almooooost went with this exact design on this mug for my header. So when I saw this gorgeous mug in June Arbor Designs Etsy Shop I had to have it!! It’s actually called the “Best Friends Coffee Mug” which makes for the absolute cutest gift ever to send to your BFF who may live in another state. So cute, right?

    furmangirl08@gmail.comMy family is back in Charlotte/Fort Mill, so I'd have to debate between SC and NC as one with NY (where I currently am!) as the other. The hardest thing about living up here is being away from them!

    I mostly just need to know how you manage two kids and a Starbucks in the airport! That's my hardest part of flying alone…. I can't drink coffee and carry all our stuff and push the buggy!!
