Friday Favorites

Hooray, it's Friday!  I may actually be busier this weekend than I was all week, but that's OK because it's mostly fun stuff! Soccer pictures, soccer games, a concert and a quick trip to VT!

Now onto my favorites from the week...

1.  First day of school
The first day of first grade went great and my guy was super excited when he came home.  A good first day is definitely my favorite, as is the spikey hair he requested!

2.  Bento boxes
As I may have previously mentioned, I totally failed at school lunches last year (i.e. lunchables were my go-to far too many times). But in my defense, Nick is a very picky eater and unless it was a lunchable or Subway,  he wouldn't eat it.  So...this year I bought bento boxes and kid eats a healthy lunch!  Small portions of several random things seems to have done the trick.  I pack sliced peppers, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, celery, blueberries, baby bells, pretzels, ham, etc.  Could I have done this last year?  Well, I guess but wouldn't it be strange to pack like 6 sandwich bags of random things in the lunchbox?  Either way, I'm super happy with our new system and love that I don't have to use plastic baggies!

I ordered these from Pottery Barn and they are made to fit the Mackenzie classic lunch bags.  Link HERE

3. IG shop - Maxeenlandshop
This chick makes the CUTEST things and has the prettiest fabrics.  She does Mug rugs, placemats, table runners...the list goes on and on!   I just had her make me these super fun Halloween placemats and mug rugs.  How adorable, right??  Check out her shop on IG!

4.  Funny of the week


5.  Time with my family
They may have drove me nuts 80% of the time, but it was so nice to have a week and a half off together as a family.  Is it next summer yet??

Have a great weekend friends!   Let me know what you'll be up to in the comments!

  1. Those little lunch containers look so handy!

  2. I love bento boxes!!!! I'm so jealous is everyone who gets to pack there kiddos lunch in them! My daughter goes to a school where the only people who can bring lunch are people with allergies to foods...

  3. Bento boxes are my favorite. When I need to pack a on the go lunch for my little guy, that's what I use. I like being able to fit so much in such a tiny space.

  4. I'm going to have to try the Bento boxes. My son is such a picky eater...and super slow too. Maybe it would help him to have small little bites. Love your son's spiky hair, and glad to hear he had a great first day!

  5. Bento boxes look like so much fun!! I want to get some of them soon. :-)
