Friday Favorites

Good Morning!  And Happy Happy Friday! =)  As always, I am linking up with the fabulous Narci, Andrea and Erika for Friday Favorites!

The days are back when Emma is in school, and on my days off Alyx and I have a little one on one time.  We usually run errands and of course sometimes do a bit of shopping.  So the other day, we got Emma off to school and Alyx and I went into town to do some shopping.  I hadn't been to Hobby Lobby in f-o-r-e-v-e-r, so that was our first stop, and this is what we found.

September 7th and they had ALL of their Christmas decorations out.  Hobby Lobby, I love you, but it's only the beginning of September...way too early in my opinion.  Alyx thought it was the BEST thing ever though =)

And then this happened.

Alyx took a fall in our kitchen, and hit her head right on the corner of the door casing in our kitchen.  She instantly got a huge egg on her forehead and I was worried about a concussion so we went to the doctor.  Thankfully she was/is ok.  Yesterday though she didn't look much better.

It's still soo soo swollen.  My poor baby =(  But at least she is ok!!!

When Emma got home from school she was really concerned when she saw her.  Alyx was taking a nap, so Emma went in and layed with her until she woke up.

These two.  Emma is like a second mother to Alyx, and Alyx loves her more than I ever imagined.  

We were helping clean out Brian's grandmothers house the other evening, and I came across this super old sewing machine table.  I instantly fell in love with it.  After asking if anyone in the family had wanted it, nobody did.  I was super excited to be able to get this.

The top flips open, and that's where the sewing machine was kept.  But there is no machine in this one.  I cannot wait to refinish it.  I have lots of ideas in my head and after looking at pinterest, this is one idea I love.

It's a little bit different than the one I have, but it's similar.  I can't wait to get started on it!

The other night Alyx, and my nephew Kaden were driving around in my inlaws drivweay in this little car/buggy.  

Oh my gosh they were too cute!  Until Alyx started screaming for Kaden to get out! haha =)

Don't forget Monday to linkup with my Hello Monday and grab the graphic =)

I hope you all have a great Friday and an amazing weekend!!!

  1. That picture of sweet Alyx breaks my heart! It looks so painful. What a good big sister Emma is to her, though!
    I can't wait to see what you do to that table!

    1. She looks super pathetic :( Hopefully it goes away soon!

  2. Oh poor Alyx, that looks like it hurt and I can imagine that it must have given mama quite the scare too. Love that table, can't wait to see what you do with it!

  3. I can't wait to see how cute your little table looks once you refinish it! I sure hope Alyx continues to feel better-that was a really rough bump!! :( have a great weekend friend!

  4. Poor Alyx! I hope she heals quickly. I love that table!

  5. I love Hobby Lobby & all their fall stuff right now but it's definitely too early for Christmas!

  6. Awe poor baby! That bump looks painful. That's a good idea with the old machine table. I have one too that still has the machine in it. It's so crazy to think Christmas is right around the corner.

  7. Poor Alyx. So glad she is doing better!! I can't wait to see a picture of your table after you refinish it!!!

  8. Poor Alyx!! Emma is the best big sister of all time.
    That table is going to be so amazing when you refinish it!!
    Christmas stuff already?! Let's get through Halloween first!

  9. Poor Alyx! Hope she is doing better. The sewing table is so perfect, and will look great when you paint it. I love the chalk paint that you can use without sanding the surface. I went to Hobby Lobby this week, and they have so much cute fall and Christmas decor. I took some pics and plan to do a blog post next week about some of my faves. Have a great weekend!

  10. The picture of Emma lying with Alyx...melted me. Our HL had Christmas out at the end of July and in full force...ugh!

  11. Poor Alyx! She got a good bruiser! I love that table and what you have planned for it! So you started your own link-up?!?!?! I love that!!!! I need to start blogging again. I do miss it.

  12. Poor baby girl! Love that Emma is so caring. My little two have never wanted for a thing because my bigs love them so much.

  13. Poor girl. I think it's safe to say that door frame won that battle. Hope she is back to good as new.
