5 Favorites 10/21/16

We have such a stinkin' busy weekend ahead of us, full of fun, fun stuff. 
I already cannot wait to share everything with y'all!!
Here are some of my favorite things right now...

{school pictures}

Oh my stars...
The boys' pictures came back this week, and I literally cannot even deal with all the handsomeness!
 3rd Grade & absolute pure JOY!
If I can think of one word to describe this boy, it would be JOY!
2nd Grade & he's just so darn cute!
He said, & I quote, "I did my best smile just for you!"
Be still my heart!!
These boys look just so handsome & just so grown. It's true that babies just don't keep!

{scentsy fall scents}

My sweet friend, Brittany, is a Scentsy rep, and she just dropped the Fall/Winter catalogs. 
Here's what I loved most!

 I mean, how cute is THIS warmer?! 
Perfect for the holiday season, and the tree is removable, so you can use it all year long!!
The FALL/WINTER scents!!
I'm looking at you Cider Mill!!
The new catalog also set up some pretty cool gift guides, and they are at different price points!
$25 & under!!
 $60 & under!!
 The scent of the month...
It is literally a must-have for anyone who loves Fall Scents!!

{fall baking}

I've been on a baking kick lately, and it's not great for any of our diets!
This week I made a pear-apple crisp.
I love crisps because they are so easy & tasty!
Diced apples and pears tossed with cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar. Then topped with THIS topping & baked until golden brown & bubbly!
Also, these pumpkin-stuffed crescents!
The Hensley crew loves us some crescents, and so I grabbed the honey butter crescents.
The filling is 1 thing of cream cheese, 1 can of pumpkin, 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar, and a couple of pinches of pumpkin pie spice. I spread the filling on the crescents and then rolled them and baked according to the package. I then drizzled a glaze made from powdered sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and a little milk. They are scrumptious!!

{bow bundles}

Nataleigh's bow supply had dwindled down, so I ordered her a bow bundle. This is the way to go all you girl mamas out there. I ordered from THIS shop on Etsy.com, and they were delivered in 3 days!
3 days, and they are beautiful bows!!
Seriously beautiful bows.
I ordered Nat the 5-inch bows with alligator clips. 
She loves picking her bow out every day, and she tends to pick the hot pink, light pink, and purple options!!

{beach tote}

I know, I know...
It's October 21st, but I cannot & will not turn down a flash sale on Lilly-inspired beach bags!
Especially if I can add my monogram in HOT PINK!!
I ordered this bag on DDP Monogram. The same site that I ordered my blanket scarf, and I love this bag so much! It's just begging to be taken to the beach. The hot pink lobsters & rope handles are perfection!
Today we are linking up with ErikaNarci, & Andrea!
As well as linking up with April for 5 on Friday!!
