Friday favorites

Happy Friday, y'all!

Today, I am linking up with my favorite bloggers: AndreaErika & Narci to talk about my favorite moments from Fall.
Since we are less than a week away from Thanksgiving, I want to share all my fall favorites before we kick of the Christmas season!


It's the Grad Life

November is Diabetes Awareness month. I know how people feel about "awareness" causes but Type 1 Diabetes is for sure over looked.
Did you know you can't get Type 1 Diabetes by eating too much sugar? 

My "d-versary" was this past week. I have only dealt with it for two years, but for some it began at 6 months. Can you imagine pricking your baby's heel three-ten times a day? :( 
I hate diabetes, and everytime I prick myself I wish for a cure...
But I am still thankful, thankful for access to advanced medicine, thankful for a wonderful support system and thankful to be alive. 


Ya'll. These earrings make me so happy.

I haven't put on much jewelry lately because it can be distracting to some of my kiddos. I can still wear earrings, and these have been on rotation lately.
The very front pair is the Kate Spade Multi-glitter studs that were out of stock for so long. For the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, they came back in stock and now they have added some new colors. They are on my wishlist for sure!

Which color is your favorite?

Now, I know I have written about these $8 earrings before, and I could probably devote several more posts to them... But I love them, And they're affordable, I mean I'm surviving on a college student budget and have 6 pairs, affordable.

I made Zack stop the car (in the middle of the road) to take a picture of this sweet little thing. They live in the pasture near my house. This picture is a beautiful reminder of home.
My heart is happiest when I am home with the ones I love.
I am so excited about Thanksgiving with my family!

That's it for my Friday Favorites. I hope everyone has a great weekend...
I am going to spend it preparing for a marathon day of eating on Thursday! :)
