Friday No. 73 + Black Friday Shopping

Friday, November 24, 2017

No. 1 
We put up a sweet little tree in Beau's room last night and it's making my life SO happy. It was so fun for him to come in and look at it and of course try to put his hands all over it, haha! When I told him not to touch he was immediately over the whole experience, haha! 

No. 2
I mentioned the skinny chicken pot pie recipe in one of my last Friday posts and made it on Tuesday. It was so easy and really exceeded my expectations. We ate a ton that first night, and I've eaten leftovers a ton and most of the time I honestly don't want to eat leftovers. This is going to become a staple at our house this winter! 

No. 3 
I've been gathering inspiration for little sister's nursery this week, and really don't know what I want. I have thought about wallpaper but just don't know if I'm ready to rock with the price tag, even for just one accent wall it's really pricey. I'm hoping to go visit the new Caitlin Wilson Design shop in Dallas and check out some samples and get some ideas. I really like the paint color of the inside of the closet pictured below so that's an option too. I just feel like there's minimal inspiration out there that I like. Help! I want to see classy, Southern influenced girl nurseries and everything on pinterest is not really tickling my fancy haha. 

No. 4
I'll probably have more thoughts to share on this at some point, but last Saturday our bulldog, Matilda, passed away. It was honestly really traumatic for me, because she passed away during our neighborhood turkey trot. We think she had a stroke after all of the excitement. It really put us in a sad mood so we set out for a family lunch at East Hampton Sandwich company (lobster mac has healing powers, y'all!) and I snapped this photo of Beau and I. His little profile kills me. Time with my boys made it all better. It's really crazy to me that using "my boys" all the time will soon be something I don't use near as much as I do now.

No. 5
There are so many little things about Beau right now that I don't want to forget. His new thing is wanting to see out of the grocery cart so he flips around every time. It's just so sweet to see him take everything in. I LOVE being this boy's mama!!!

Happy Weekend! I hope y'all had an incredible Thanksgiving and are enjoying a restful Friday- or a crazy one with lots of shopping! 

I don't feel like I ever talk about Black Friday or even really take advantage of it, but this year it's come up in conversation SO much. With all my girlfriends, we just keep talking about what sales we're going to take advantage of, so I thought I would share what I'm hoping to snag/will hopefully have snagged by now haha! I wrote this post before Friday, so I'll update it sometime Friday morning with my actual picks and finds!

Some things I'm buying on Black Friday: 
  • Emily Ley Baby Book in Blush for Little Sister Strader! 
  • Snagged some MAJOR treasure for her at The Beaufort Bonnet Company. I'll include it in a widget below!
  • Some Piper Finn Shoes for Beau
  • Big Boy Bedding and sheets (these + these) for Beau (cue the tears!!) 
  • Beau's Big boy BED 
  • Freshly Picked Moccs are still 25% off- I got a few pairs of the bow moccs and mary janes for our girl! (if you prefer to order from Nordstrom, they are price matched but there's less of a selection!)

Some things I'm window shopping on Black Friday (haha!): 

All of my Friday posts can be found here.



  1. I’m so sorry about Matilda. Dogs are members of the family as much as anyone else. I hope you guys find comfort in memories with her. There’s a great children’s book “Dog Heaven” that is very comforting. I remember my mom read it to us when we had to put down our lab, Samantha, when I was in kindergarten. Xoxoxoxo

  2. I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your dog -- it's always hard to lose a beloved pet but it's doubly so around the holidays. I am so impressed by your desire to look on the bright side of things and to stay in the moment with your boys. Such a wonderful outlook!

  3. I'm so sorry about yall losing your dog!! Losing a pet is the worst! .... Loving your inspiration for the baby girl's nursery!!

  4. Oh Victoria, my heart hurts for you about losing Matilda. Prayers for comfort and peace.

  5. I am so, so sorry about your dog-losing a beloved family pet is so sad. I'm glad you were able to find some comfort by spending time with sweet Beau!

    xoxo, SS

    Southern and Style

  6. I'm so sorry about Matilda! On a happier note, where did you find his precious pajamas in the first picture?

  7. This may not be southern enough for you but I saw this nursery recently from my friend and I fell in LOVE with the simplicity and beauty of it! If only I had seen it earlier to inspire our nursery for our little girl (due tomorrow)!

    So sorry about Matilda. Loosing a pup is so sad and so hard.

  8. So, so sorry to hear about Matilda. That's so tough.

    Beau looks so cute with that tree!
