friday favorites

Happy first (official) day of Fall! We have a heat wave here and it's feeling more like Summer but that isn't stopping us from doing all of our favorite Fall things! It's been awhile since I've done a Friday Favorites post and there are so many good things right now that I have to share!

one | First up, the neatest new board book series that the girls can't get enough of, Mrs. Peanuckle's Alphabet Library. The first two books (Fruit Alphabet + Vegetable Alphabet) were released this week and 4 more are set to come out in February & May that I am so excited for. The illustrations are just so vibrant and fun and I love that it is a great way for toddlers to learn the alphabet and as children get a little older, especially for Poppy and Olivia, it teaches them all new kinds of vegetables and fruit that they may never have seen or heard of, like dragonfruit, okra and more. It also includes facts on each page that even I didn't know before reading, like that vanilla is a fruit that grows from an orchid!  Bonus points for a children's book that teaches the adults. The set of these would be the sweetest gift for a 1st Birthday and they are on repeat over here in our house!

two | It doesn't take long to look at my feed and see our Gathre mats in the majority of our photos. We use them every single day and take them everywhere we go. We have two midis and two maxis  (one square and one round) and love them all for different reasons. The midis are the ones I most often throw in my diaper bag or stroller for on the go. We keep a maxi in our backyard shed for whenever the girls are outside and then I try to keep one in my car as well. They are great for the park, the beach, picnics, art activities (we always take ours out when the girls want to do watercolors), ideal for inside + outside and even just cozying up with a big quilt and a stack of books, like we did last night to celebrate the last day of Summer. Gathre just recently released their FW17 collection and the colors are phenomenal. Below is Hunter and it is my new favorite! Be sure to watch for an exclusive coupon code for Gathre coming next week on instagram ;) 

three | I shared this ruffle-hem top in a Fall Clothing Favorites post here a few weeks ago but yesterday was the first day both Olivia & Poppy wore it (if you saw yesterday's stories, P was wearing it on our errand run). That was, until the temp crept up so high by midday that I had to change them back in to summer clothes!! It is probably the softest shirt in their wardrobe and goes with anything & everything! Peplum style anything is a favorite on my girls. On sale and comes in four colors, including the gray ones they have! 

four | The girls love to dance and since we added a Google Home to our kitchen earlier this week, I am continually hearing them say (actually mostly yell), "Hey Google, play some country music!" (start em young) and I came across a new song on Spotify that I'm loving called Written in the Sand by Old Dominion. It's always fun to find new favorites to add to our playlist, especially for kitchen dance parties.

five | This apple cider waffle recipe is on my radar for brunch this weekend.

six | Our fav bow shop ever, Wunderkin Co., restocks their Fall 1 Collection one last time on Monday at 10am MST (set an alarm, because things go quick!). All of Hillary's bows are so timeless, well made and guaranteed for life. Our new favorite for Della from this collection is the Aster oversized pinwheel (below); it is the perfect dusty-gray-pink-neutral bow that matches everything. I also love their oversized schoolgirls for Poppy and Olivia, especially at our lifestyle photo sessions. We try to keep things pretty minimal around here but with three girls, there really isn't such a thing as too many bows, is there?? 

Hope you have the best weekend!! XO
