Friday Favorites: #OOTD Edition

Okay, so I've been so inconsistent this week, and I apologize. This week was our second full week back in school & our first week of volleyball games starting up. I've been crazy figuring out our ever-changing schedules because our day-to-day is so hectic, and honestly I didn't think you wanted to hear & see pictures from car line or the gym every day!

Today I want to share a couple of my favorite outfits that Nataleigh wore recently because they were so cute, and she's the only one of my kids who loves to have her picture taken still!!
If you knew how many times I had to say 'look like you like each other' you would understand my pain!


Forever our favorite maxi + the denim bow from our monthly bow box!

Perfect end-of-summer church outfit!


This Dress & it's on sale!!


Proudly representing our Tennessee Cinderella girls!


A little vintage Matilda Jane for a morning on the farm!

Sophie the cat approves this outfit!!


Volleyball matches call for some Matilda Jane & One Stop Bow Shop.

This bow is from the August Monthly Bow Box, and you can still order it and more adorable bows!! They are also taking pre-orders on the September box, and you'll definitely want it!


The only time you'll see Nataleigh out of Matilda Jane is at cheerleading!

She loves, loves, loves cheering, and she is so proud of everything she's already learned in two weeks. She's working hard & listening so well. I'm definitely a proud CHEER MOM, and she's still pretty cute rocking those Nike leggings!


My favorite of the week!
Monday I shared some of my current worries and anxieties about this girl's CT Scan that she was having to have due to prolonged pneumonia. We got the results back, and the lungs are finally clearing up.
Hallelujah Praise God!

She was so surprised that Nana showed up to keep this little one distracted!

We serve a mighty God Who completely answered our prayers. On behalf of our entire family, THANK YOU so much for joining us in prayer.

Happy Friday!

Three Things

Happy Tuesday!!
Today I'm sharing Three Things about the Hensley 5. These are my absolute favorite posts because I just love seeing how much we've all grown and changed in just a short little time! It's been a while since I last shared about us, so let's get right into today's post!


1. He is super excited about starting 4th grade. He gets to begin changing classes a little this year, and they have class pets...GERBILS! I cannot wait to see all that this boy learns this year!
2. He's still ADDICTED to basketball. He's been practicing with his travel team all Summer, and we are definitely ready for the Fall season to start up!
3. He's majorly obsessed with Dude Perfect. It's insane, and those guys have definitely taken over the Hensley House!


1. He also is beyond obsessed with Dude Perfect. Along with Stephen, these two are constantly trying to set up the 'perfect DP trick!'
2. School so far has been a bit of a roller coaster emotionally for Carson. He loves his teacher & his new friends, but he seriously misses his friends from the last 2 years. He, however, has never been more confident when it comes to his school work. Retaining him this year has definitely proven to be the best, yet most difficult, decision. 
3. He is seriously the proudest big and little brother EVER! I cannot praise this boy enough for how much he cheers his siblings on in whatever they do. Sometimes being the middle child is tough, but this boy has perfectly mastered it. He is seriously Nataleigh's biggest fan, and he cannot look up to his brother enough. His ginormous heart is why the child is the most lovable little man ever!


1. This little girl has found herself a sport, y'all! She took her very first cheerleading class, and she LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it! She cannot wait for Wednesdays with her besties at cheer!
2. Speaking of cheering, her favorite venue to cheer people on is at MAO prelims. We spent last weekend in Knoxville cheering on some of her absolute favorite Cinderella Princesses, and that cheering work because they all won! #cleancinderellasweep
3. She is tiny, yet she's the bravest girl I know. I shared a little of my heart YESTERDAY, and while we don't have the results back yet, we are trusting that all will be well. This summer alone she's had several chest x-rays, IVs, blood work taken, and so many check-ups, and now we have had a CT Scan. This girl has faced every single one of those tests better than most adults would have. She is far braver than I am, and she's a true inspiration.

Joe & Britt

1. Our lives have never been busier. Joe is busy learning all things insurance, and he's been so successful. State Farm is super lucky to have such a smart, hard-working, handsome man!
2. The Science Hill regular volleyball season begins today, and life will just get so much busier. I'm thankful for the parents, coaches, and the players that have taught me so much so far. To the Lady Toppers, let's make this the best season yet!
3. Two years ago our marriage was a complete failure. We were in the biggest valley any married couple could face, and while every day isn't perfect, our marriage is so strong right now. I know that it was because we allowed ourselves to be broken by Him for His plan. We quickly let go of what life 'should have been,' and we started focusing on what life was. It was messy, imperfect, and completely submitted to Him, and now, 2 years later, God is getting all the praise for what He has done. We look to Him in all things, and we know that all things, good & bad, work together for His ultimate good!


I cannot let the post publish without thanking Andrea from Momfessionals for the inspiration behind these posts. These little check-ins mean so much to this mama!!
