Favorite Things..(and a sick, little boy)

When I picked Beau up from school yesterday, I noticed he looked a little weird and felt a little warm.  His teacher said his cheeks might have been red because he had just tripped on the playground face-first into the dirt!  But, I wasn't so sure and called his doctor anyway, and within 15 minutes of leaving his school and getting to the doctor, he had spiked a fever of 102!  Poor little guy!  So, today I stayed home with him, we slept in (about an hour later than normal~ still too early!!) and watched Curious George ALL DAY!!  I lost count, but I believe we watched {insert Beau's voice} "Monkey on the train" about 5 times, "monkey ah baseball" for about an hour, and "monkey making ah juice" atleast 5 times!  Whatever makes him happy...  ;)

Look at this poor, little guy.  
 And how about that fever rash??
 Watching "Monkey"

So, for this Friday, some of my Favorite Things are as follows:
~Children's Tylenol and Advil
~Curious George...the first time but 100 times today is a lot of that little monkey! :)

along with a few other things~

Check out this cute board I found at Queen of Hearts in Alpharetta.  I have wanted something to hang my jewelry on for awhile now, and when I saw this, it was just what I've been looking for!  It's a little big, but I really like it!  Dad asked, "Do you even have that many necklaces?"  Ha!  And the answer is no.  But I am going to put more things on it, maybe a few notes I cherish at the top...not sure yet, but this is it so far.
On it I have some of my jewelry.  Who am I kidding.  This is just about all my jewelry.  I don't accessorize nearly as much as I would like! 
Anyway, I have some really special things, even though I don't have much.  Here's the rundown:
~My pearls I got from Mom and Dad a few birthdays ago
~My childhood "charmin" bracelets (as mom called them)
~My "Beau bracelet."  It's a Pandora-type one Paige got me when Beau was born
~My little diamond bracelet Paige got me when we first started dating (it has broken twice so now it is hanging day I will fix it again). 
~I also have a beautiful butterfly broach Dad got for me when he went to Germany quite a few years ago.  I LOVE it and love that I now have somewhere to display it!
~My necklace I got from Annie to wear in her wedding.  I love all those pearls together!
~My "Beau Birthstone Necklace" Frazer got me  :)
~My necklace from Paige which I wore for our wedding
~Other various things...and some things aren't on here yet.  (Beau woke up mid-decorating so I had to quit).  Oh, and you will also notice in the bottom left corner there are 2 pieces of flair.  These are my prizes for being a coaches wife.  Two national championships and I get these lovely things.  :)  Haha! 
My "charmin' bracelets"

My football wife bling! 

Here is my other new favorite thing!  This lovely thing is also from Queen of Hearts.  It's an old drawer, and it's perfect for pictures on one side and my clickers on the other!  Mom has an old box on a side table with lose pictures in it, and I have always loved it.  I have looked for something to use for my lose pictures for a long time now, so I was happy when I came across this!  I want to be just like her! 

So there you go.   I'm starting to realize I love a lot of things.  A lot of things I have, lots of things I want, things I see online, at Target, etc...I guess I've just got a lot of love for all sorts of crap! Humm...the Brewers just tied the Braves... Maybe my next post will be all the things I hate!!  They will be on top!  (and the Phillies, too!  I will always hate the Phillies!)  

One more favorite:
Stole this from Landon's blog!!  This is AWESOME!!


  1. Erin, I love the sweet pic of you and your mom that the pile of pics is flipped to ♥ You both look beautiful.

    Great idea for the drawer, too. I love that.

    Hope Beau is feeling back to normal real soon, but glad you two got a day at home together.

  2. Thanks Megan! Yeah, I did that on purpose! :) He's getting better. Luckily this is the first time in a year that he has been really sick. Hope you are doing great!

  3. Love all of your pretty, precious things displayed so you can enjoy every day!!

  4. Erin, I love that jewelry board! You have so many special pieces on it- which is so nice. I don't wear a lot of my sentimental ones, but that's a good way to display them so you can enjoy them. My favorites, by far, are your football bling- so funny!

    And I'm really liking the yellow and gray chevron.

  5. GREAT jewelry board!!! We need to hit up Queen of Hearts together after I move next week. Looks like fun! LOVE the box with pictures...your mom certainly knew how to make things special!! What a great tradition to carry on. Your blog looks so great. Can you give me a tutorial?? Love you!
