{five on friday} 19th edition

Happy Friday!!! This week was a little different for us as Josh and I didn't get back until Monday night, so our week really didn't "begin" until Tuesday! If you didn't already check it out, you can find a recap of our Florida vacay here. We had the most fabulous time, but were SO excited to get home to our girl!!! I'm excited to be linking up with my friend, Darci from The Good Life Blog for another round of Five on Friday!

 I'm loving all the sequin/jewel embellished sweaters for this season!!! I came across these two {one I already have in my hands and the other is in the mail} and can't wait for E and I to wear them together!! EEEKK!!! :)

From the time Ella was itty bitty, she has loved books! Any and every book! Currently, she loves to "read" them to us! These are a few of her favorites lately!

Our weather has been absolutely gorgeous this week! We've enjoyed lots and lots of outside play time! Her newest face is killing me!!! Every time I hold up my phone to take her pic, this is what she does!!! hehe

 I think my most favorite {okay, one of MANY} time of day with Ella is putting her to bed! There is no sweeter sound than hearing her pray for ALL of her family {dogs included} and ALL of her friends! And for the first time last night, she sang "Jesus Loves Me" all by herself! It literally brought me to tears! I pray her love for Jesus continues to grow and grow!

Starbucks Caramel Apple Spice. Enough said! If you haven't had one, it's a must!
 
I'm off to get everything ready for our family pictures tonight! 'Tis the season for pics!!! :) Happy Weekend, y'all!

I have an Old Navy order headed my way, too ;) They've had so much cute stuff! Their toddler section alone could drain my account!

Mmm, the caramel apple spice is so yummy! Have you tried any of the Pinterest knock-offs? I haven't yet, but definitely need to!

That sweater is really cute. Oh my I haven't seen the caramel apple spice! Seriously, that sounds and looks amazing. It's okay to have starbucks twice in one day right? I might need one before I head out on a road trip this evening!

K. Elizabeth @ YUMMommy said...

It's so heartwarming when we see our children growing in their faith!

Leah @ Everyday Love said...

Love the caramel apple spice! They passed one out to me for FREE at Target this week and it was amazing. Can't wait to see your family pictures! Happy Weekend!
