friday favorites

To wrap up this week, here are some of my favorite things that happened!

1. Nolan and his “Cars” cars.

Steve is on the lookout for diecast cars from the Pixar/Disney movie “Cars,” mainly the major characters from the town of Radiator Springs. Yesterday morning we gave Nolan “Sally,” the Porche—which was really hard to find! Nolan got so excited, and pretty soon he called us into the room to show us that they were all having a party :)


2. Ephraim’s toy-stage is in full swing!

This little guy always has to have a toy in his mouth. This is helping him have a little more independent time, as it keeps him entertained longer than five minutes. :)

3. Raspberries from our garden.

I think last year, our raspberry bushes peaked in late August, but we are seeing red this week! I have seriously picked almost a hundred raspberries a day! And all of this from only a few little bushes!

4. The things out of this kid’s mouth.

It has been SO fun to hear Nolan’s words turn in to such complete thoughts and conversations! We are getting to see his imagination at work and finally understand more of what goes on in his head :) Here are two examples:

When leaving a graduation party on Sunday, he said to the mom of the grad: "Tank you Mrs. H—. I love you!” Yesterday, after picking up some food items, he said “Bye grocery store, I love you!”

Also, he keeps repeating sentences like this every time he gets a minor injury: “I hurt mine thumbie. I need to go to the goctor and get a bandaid and then go to the ice cream store!”



5. My favorite friend’s birthday is tomorrow.

I can’t wait to celebrate Steve’s birthday!! It’s one of my very favorite days of the year, and hopefully I’ll be able to spoil him with cake and presents and all good things!

Check out that jawline! :)


  1. Cars is such a great movie for all ages. My kindergarten kiddos play "Cars" during free time and just this week my best friend had her newborn in a Cars onsie! Those raspberries look delicious. Are you using them in any recipes?

  2. My two year old has recently become OBSESSED with Cars too!! To the point where I MIGHT be able to recite lines;) I'm going to have to invest in some if these matchbox cars! He'll be in heaven!

  3. Those raspberries look absolutely amazing! I would love to have a garden because I love berries but they are so expensive in the store. #UghApartmentLife! Also, how adorable are those little kiddos of yours! Have a great weekend! Love & Happiness!

  4. Those raspberries are beautiful! And I can't get over how much Nolan looks like Steve in that last picture!

  5. My son loves Cars and Cars 2 and we've found some of the original Radiator Springs crew at Wal-Mart lately for under $4 each! :) Those raspberries look delicious!


  6. I'm always on the lookout for the original radiator springs crew, too! We found Sally at a garage sale, crazy lucky! Looks like Nolan keeps his in really good shape. I'm jealous that he's got Flo and Fillmore! :)

  7. Aw! I love little boys with their cars! So sweet!! :) thanks for linking up!

  8. I love that quilt Ephraim is playing on! Where did you get it?

    1. Thanks! Actually, my Aunt Karen made it! We have a few of her beautiful quilts in our house :)

  9. Raspberries from your yard?? So jealous!! They look delish!! Hope you have a great weekend!

  10. We call them "cars" cars, too! So funny!!! Thanks so much for linking up! :) Andrea
