Happy Friday, friends! 

Our 2nd week of school is in the books! And let me just say that I was ON TOP of my dinner game this week! Made a meal plan for the week and wait for it....stuck to it!! Woohoo! That's a HUGE win! It seems like something always comes up where I forget to thaw out meat or don't make it to the grocery store....but not this week! (Insert fist bump!)

And if you missed this week's posts,
You can read about our Labor Day Weekend HERE.
I shared my Chicken Enchilada recipe HERE from Tuesday.
And a Day in the Life post HERE.

As always, I'm teaming up with ERIKA, ANDREA, and NARCI for FRIDAY FAVORITES!

I am LOVING the rainy weather and cooler temps this week! Friends, it feels like FALL here and that makes my heart SO HAPPY! 

I snapped this pic which has basically been my "uniform" this week. Is there anything better than sweatshirt and shorts weather?! 



Speaking of Fall, I started sprinkling a few Fall decor touches around the house. I love my pumpkin with lights. It adds a touch of cozy to our entryway. :)


Fall candles are always a FAVORITE! I have a few of the Yankee Candle Spiced Pumpkin that smell SO GOOD! I even bought a small one for my office!



A little Fall decor for the kitchen table too! 


Last week, I posted on Instagram and asked for suggestions on a new texturing spray. My hair is super baby fine so it needs all the help it can get in the volume department. A couple friends suggested this Not Your Mother's brand. 


I bought it to try as well as their dry shampoo. Let me tell you, this stuff smells FANTASTIC! #givemeallthetoastedcoconut

So far, I'm really pleased with both products. If you have another suggestion, please leave me a comment! I'd love to have more recommendations!

We have our first soccer and football games this weekend for Cutter and he is PUMPED! Carson is attending his first school dance. WHAT?! The Middle School is having a Back To School dance Saturday night and Carson is excited to go with his friends. I still cannot believe he is in 6th grade. If you are new here, we have 4 kids. A girl and 3 boys and this year we have 4 schools! Alyssa is a Senior in college in Waco, TX - Conner is a Junior in High School - Carson is in 6th grade in Middle School - Cutter is in 4th grade at the Elementary. Yep. We have them all covered! 😉

You can keep up with us this weekend on social media!

Have a great weekend!



It's the LAST Friday of the school year
and we are PUMPED at the Ferry house!

It's been another week full of fun end of the year activities at school and finishing up baseball season. Our schedules have been crazy and therefore I haven't been on the blog every day. I'll be back consistently once we survive May! 😉

I shared about our family sign earlier this week.

As always, I am linking up with ERIKA, NARCIand ANDREA to share my FAVORITES from the week! I have a lot to share today. Grab your coffee and let's go! 



Last Friday was the city wide 5th grade track meet. Carson and his friend, Rylan, both decided to enter. Carson ran the 400M and placed 3rd in his heat! Not bad for a kid who doesn't really love to run. We were so proud he signed up and tried something outside his comfort zone!

Carson and Cutter are both MILLION WORD READERS this year! 
On Monday, they attended a special day of activities at Abilene Christian University's campus to celebrate with the other Million Word Readers in the district. 


So proud of their hard work!
Praying they grow up to love reading as much as I do! 😊




Cutter had his GT Showcase in front of judges at school on Tuesday. He wanted to look nice for his presentation and took extra time fixing his hair that morning. He wanted me to snap a pic and send to his big sister! How cute is he?! And Alyssa approved! 



This is my sweet nephew, Corban!

On Wednesday, I pulled Cutter and Carson out of school so we could go eat lunch with Corban. Cutter and Carson are switching schools in the Fall and will be at the same one as their cousin. They wanted a sneak peak at campus!

We ate lunch with Corban and then he gave us a quick tour. The teachers had decorated for STAAR testing the entire hallway! It was THE CUTEST! We snapped pics of these little lumberjacks! 


We surprised the boys and let them skip the rest of the afternoon! 

We took Corban home with us for some fun! 


Of course, there was a lot of Fortnite to be played! 

Are your kiddos addicted to this game too? Or is it just everyone at my house? All 3 of our boys ages 9, 11, and 16 love the game. 

They headed outside and played several games of cornhole. 


They told me to take some "action" shots. 



Except they wanted to pose for their action shots! Ha! 

Cousins are ALWAYS a FAVORITE! 



Thursday was a BIG day for our Cutter Maddux! 

He started the day with his class awards ceremony. He was given the class Math award, A Honor Roll, Sportsmanship award, and Million Word Reader. He ROCKED the 3rd grade!

That evening, he played a baseball game to determine the 2nd place team for the season because we were tied for 2nd with another team. 



Hot Rods got the win and 2nd place for the season! This kid was BEAMING when he came off the field!

City Tournament - Here we come! 


I have had several of you message me on Instagram about t-shirts so I wanted to share with you my newest purchases from Oliver and Otis

Please keep in mind that I got home late Thursday night and took quick pics on our kitchen table. These are not great photos because I couldn't find good light at night in our house. #bloggerproblems 


Seriously one of my ALL TIME FAVORITES! I have this Rainbow Ringer on repeat!



This Happy Place t-shirt just makes me HaPpY! 
Texas is home and home is my happy place so it is perfect! 
I bought it in mint green with navy writing but they also have it in periwinkle blue with coral. Both are so cute! 



I also grabbed this white TX serape tee. Love the bright colors for summer! 

And anytime you purchase 3 tees - you get a SURPRISE logo tee for FREE! 



How cute is this logo tee?! You can't see the colors very well because of the bad light ( so sorry!) but take my word - CUTE! CUTE! CUTE! 

Oliver and Otis is a company that a sweet friend of mine, Allie, started with her sister, Arin, and their precious mom, Patti! I absolutely ADORE these girls and their entire family!  

They love Jesus! They love Texas! They love people! 
And they have THE BEST t-shirts! 



They have onesies too! And Momma and baby can match! How SWEET is that!! 

Here are a few other of my FAVORITES that I have my eye on next!



You Make Me Happy
