Friday Favorites-Hello Fall

Happy Friday everyone! I hope your week has been a good one. I'm sad to say that I think the germs in our house caught up with me. I was trying so hard to keep everything clean and opening the windows for some fresh air, but my throat is feeling it and I'm just not my self. I'm really hoping to get some much needed rest in this weekend, and I'm happy to say we have nothing going on. Nothing! This hasn't happened all summer. Weekends like this are seriously my favorite. 

Fall is officially here and I'm also hoping to get the last of our fall decor out. Speaking of fall, my flip flop broke on my lunch break yesterday which I think was a sure sign to just go ahead and embrace the fact that it's now fall. Luckily I had an extra pair in my trunk (who else keeps extra shoes in their car?!) because I really hate walking around in my heels after work. Ok, enough with my ramblings. Here's to everyone's shoes staying intact and a look at my favorites. 

1. Local fun: if you remember from last week's favorites we were planning on heading down the shore for a seafood festival. We were already in the car at a gas station when Eric's parents called to say it was canceled. They were already down at their house when a bomb went off in seaside before the Marine charity run which ended up being linked to other terrorist activity. Thank God no one was hurt! 

With our plans changing we decided to stop by a local park that was having a festival. We enjoyed sipping over sized glasses of lemonade, we finally got a funnel cake which only took all summer, and A loved bouncing around in the bounce houses and slides. 

2. Dinner out: we ventured out with the nuggets for a family dinner to a local spot that sits on a runaway so you can watch the planes take off and land. They have outdoor seating so it was perfect with the kids. I'm always more relaxed when places have outdoor seating because I'm not as nervous about the nuggets reeking havoc. Planes up and off, kids amused, food was good and everyone was happy.

3. Birthday fun: the nuggets also enjoyed a friends birthday at this cute little indoor bounce around and have fun place. I've just come to terms that getting a picture of them together is nearly impossible. They just don't sit still. I was able to capture this little moment all before one of them hauled off and whacked the other one. Such is life with boys.

4. Camera time: I was doing some research about prime lenses for my camera and finally went to a store to check them out. I decided on a 40mm lens and so far have been pretty happy with it. I was able to get it used and in excellent condition for a fraction of the cost and if the associate would have pulled it out of a box like it was new I would have never been able to tell the difference. I'm going to keep an eye out for a used 50mm lens and have already been dropping hints to Eric that I wouldn't mind it as a Christmas gift.

5. Fall wear: if fall doesn't offer enough wonderfulness by itself we also get to have fun with fall fashion. I'll be sharing more about this look next week but for now I'm loving {this} swing dress. Props to my husband for snapping a few pics. He's such a trooper and I'm starting to see his eye behind the camera might be better than mine. Has anyone else basically turned their husband into their photographer? I might just have to do a post about the life of a blogger husband.

I hope everyone enjoys their first fall weekend. Check out some of these awesome bloggers and where I am linking up for Friday fun.
