Friday Favorites-Happy Fall

Happy Friday, friends! I hope everyone had a great week. This one felt like it flew by and I can't believe we are almost at the end of September and today is the first day of fall. Our temps have been all over the place and it feels like summer's not ready to say goodbye just yet. I did get to do some fall shopping this week which makes me happy because fall is one of my favorite times for fashion. 

We have a lot of fun things we're looking forward to this weekend and Eric and I took today off to have a day date in the city. The boys will be in school which means we don't have to worry about getting a sitter, that's a win win. 

Here's a look at some of my favorites from the week...

1. Hoedown: one of the local towns near us had their annual hoedown which we had to check out. We enjoyed sipping on lemonade while the boys got their energy out in the bounce houses and enjoyed all of the festive fun.
2. We're corny and we know it: I couldn't help but share this silly picture of us on my instagram. We were peeling corn the other night and one of them happened to be a double eared corn. After looking at it, I realized it kind of resembled something questionable and Eric and I got a good laughed out of it. Of course not without getting a picture—because who could pass that up? The boys ended up eating the ears raw and this corn was so fresh you didn't even need to cook it.
3. Prague: I am happy to say I will be tagging along for another one of Eric's work trips and in two weeks we will be off to Prague. He's already traveled there before but this will be my first time visiting and I'm really excited because it's the country where my grandfather immigrated from. I'm really looking forward to Czech-ing it out (see what I did there, haha). We'll be traveling kid free which is always so hard to be away from them but also nice to connect and experience new things as a couple. The boys will be in the best hands possible and will probably be getting spoiled like crazy.

4. Airstream update: It's official, we finally started renovations on the airstream. We are still waiting for a few things that we ordered to come in but we did pick out new flooring, paint, and got a butcherblock counter top this week that I am so excited about! The cabinets haven't come in yet and we are working on taking the heating system out because we won't be traveling with it during the winter. This will allow some extra room in there as we are trying to maximize the space. On our day date we'll be stopping by Mood Fabrics which is my favorite spot to pick out materials. We're hoping to find some fabric for custom curtains and seat covers.

We are still tossing around some ideas for what would work best in the bathroom and don't want to make any hasty decisions. Renovating a travel trailer is very different than a stationary home because you need to keep in mind and make sure you are using materials that won't crack or break while you are driving it. I plan on doing several dedicated posts about our renovations once we get a little further along, but for now, we are so excited to see where the <<Road Toad>> takes us! And yes, we finally have our name!

5. Moming: this week I shared something that was on my heart about how sometimes moming can get the best of me. I can always appreciate those real moments where I can relate to other mothers and I feel like it's so important to let our guard down at times and just have real life talks. It's important to know that we are all in this together and that no one is perfect. I was overwhelmed by the support and my post being shared to several facebook moms groups where conversations were started and others could relate. You can read more {here}, and if it's something that speaks to you, sharing it with others is always appreciated. We are all amazing women doing the best we can for our families.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and enjoys the official start of fall. Here's where you can find me linking for all of the link up fun.
