I’m so glad it’s Friday as I have a fun weekend planned. Tonight my hubby and I are going to the Rangers game with some friends. Then tomorrow I have a Baby Sprinkle with some of my close friends with donuts and coffee! Do you know how many favorites I just listed there?!
My mom is watching the boys which is also a very appreciated break from those tiring duties that I struggle with right now. I designed this travel mug a while ago and this is definitely my daily goal as of late…
Today’s Goal: Keep the tiny humans alive
In addition to keeping my humans alive, I’m sharing some favorites today and linking up with other bloggers as well.
MADDOX GOES TO PRESCHOOL
Maddox had his first day of Preschool in the 3’s class last Tuesday. He was so excited to go and see all his old friends. I thought he was adorable his first day. He walked right in and was excited to see me when I picked him up. His teachers say he naps hard…he’s getting up a lot earlier than last year since B is up (they share a room), so he’s wiped by nap time.
35 WEEKS PREGNANT
If you missed my 35 week update, you can read it here. I’m excited to be 35 weeks and so anxious to know how this I’ll end up going into labor. I feel like I have so much to do.
MAX’S DONUT SHOP
If you’re local, you must try this donut shop. It’s called Max’s and is in Allen (the highschool is right across the street). They’re warm and ridiculous yummy for some reason. And cheaper than most donut shops. The line is always to the door, if not out the door. We grabbed these before church last Sunday.
ICED PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE
So a couple of years ago, I tried the oh-so-popular Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks and actually wasn’t a fan compared to my favorite (Salted Caramel Mocha). I was craving pumpkin the other day though (probably because our temps were below 90 degrees) and I decided to give the iced version a try. Y’all, this one is so much better in my opinion. And perfect for warmer places like Texas where we don’t reach Fall for a while. If you haven’t tried the iced PSL, give it a try.
Here is only a sneak peek at the sign I’ve been dying to put up in the nursery. I’m blessed to have two good friends who make beautiful signs and gifted Baby Girl with this. It was beyond what I imagined in my head. I’ll post more details of it and where it went when I post the Nursery reveal. You can find my friend’s wood signs here.
I can’t wait to share a new recipe with you. It’s easy, cheesy, and super yummy! I aiming to have it up next week.
Beckham had another game tonight and it’s always fun to watch him play. His team started including “outs” now so it’s up’d the playing a bit…for a 5 year old at least.
And lastly, if you missed my posts on social media yesterday, I’m running a sale in my shop this month before I close it down for the arrival of baby! Make sure to check it out…there are so many fun Fall items in the shop, along with tons of other stuff.
I’ll be re-opening before Christmas though. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Happy Friday, Olivia! You deserve a fun night out! It sounds like you have. Great weekend planned. The countdown is on now!!! Eek! Can’t wait to meet your little GIRL!
Erika, it was so fun! We ended up being on TV the whole night since we were directly behind home plate on Row 2. Talk about nerve wrecking…we had no idea we were sitting that close. We had the same buffet we did when we went with you and Tab (it was included in the ticket).
Count down on for sure! I’m so excited!
That Ziti looks so good, I’ll be peeking back in for the recipe!
It’s so good. I noticed the very next day that I left the entire pan of leftovers out over night and that day so I’m too afraid to eat it. 🙂

Duh…how did I not know you could get your PSL iced. A must try for sure. Hello Saturday afternoon treat. You look so darling. Only 5 weeks to go. Very exciting!!! Enjoy your weekend. XO
I know right! I went 2 years without having a PSL and thought…ICED! I like iced coffee better right now with all the heat. I also like the Caramel Macchiatto better iced than hot.

Hi Olivia! I just love your blog! I always enjoy reading your schedule, goals, and motherhood moments. You are such an inspiration…I send you many prayers to get ready for baby number three! My hubby and I will start soon for baby number as three as well, so I will REALLY look forward to posts after you have your baby girl!
Thank you Shannon! That is such a sweet comment and I’m glad you took the time to leave that. How exciting about a possible baby #3! I never knew how much I wanted this third until I became pregnant. I can’t wait to meet her!
Hope you had a wonderful “sprinkle” over the weekend!
We very similarly think PSL and caramel macchiatos are better iced! I normally always order a latte at starbucks, but have found this year that a grande iced coffee with 1 pump of pumpkin and 1-2 pumps of (SF) vanilla with skim milk makes an awesome drink. Have a great week!
