oh hey, friday! | my week according to iPhone

we're there. we did it. another week in the books...and now i'm officially in the month of birthdays.

that's right...sawyer's birthday is on the 24th and kaye's is on the 30th.

now, i know it's hard to believe, but when planning our family i literally thought, hey...we should have our kids in the same month. then we can just have one big birthday party!

and then we did. two girls. same month. just a few days shy of two years apart. no pressure or anything.

speaking of pressure...i was feeling the pressure to come up with a new, super fall-y button...and i did just that! so...change up your summer button with this treat!

1 | grab this here snazzy fall-themed button and link back to Sept. Farm.
2 | link up your post at the bottom of this post.
3 | tell all your friends + have a fantastic friday.

1 | i'm leaving idaho by way of atlanta!
you guys...i'm out of here! i'm leaving my two best gals and my farmer at home and headed to atlanta! i wrote all about it yesterday here...but best of all...i get to meet jessica of the newly blog in real life!
okay...i haven't told her this, but i'm super nervous. like maybe i'll be so awkward - first date style...and then she'll realize that i'm a weirdo from idaho and gah. (be cool, karli. be cool.)

2 | when i take my gals on dates
i'm beyond thrilled to report that we are officially at an age where the three of us gals can go be lunchin' ladies. kaye sits in her seat. bitty doesn't need breast fed every 15 minutes. it's very freeing, really. so my best gals and i headed to the big city because i had a coupon for pottery barn and mama needed some fresh fall decor. 

3 | fresh fall decor

i snagged some new pillow covers for the pillows on our couch. the colors they have going on this season are beyond gorgeous. i'm in love. 
and kaye fell in love with every pumpkin she saw in the store...so we picked up two...and a little owl candle that smells delicious!

4 | nutella train...wreck
you guys...i cannot kick this addiction. i blame costco for selling these giant tubs in packs of two. it's ridiculous. i blame my farmer for working late nights and leaving me home with all the trash tv. and i blame my girls for going to bed so damn early. people...it's not my fault.

but let it be noted...i'm not buying anymore once we make it through these tubs.

5 |  awkward selfies
am i the only one who struggles in the selfie department? i was snapping some pictures of some dresses i purchased for our family pictures coming up. (i was sending said pictures to amy and my sister to get their thoughts.) i never know what to do with my face - smile? duck face? cross my eyes?

amy's response to this dress - i hope it's not breezy. (ie. your dress is really short.) but that's how i roll, gals. short hair. short shorts. short dresses. short booties. my farmer...he digs short.

you know who isn't awkward in front of the camera? this gal. even with a cold, she's just too darn cute.
happy fri-yay!

  1. I love love the new button and that new pillow! I totally get it when you can go out without feeling pressured to feed someone or chase someone down at every second! So glad you had a nice outing. :) Have fun in Atlanta! I left my farmer and boys for a couple of days this week and I was so happy to get back. I missed them like crazy!

  2. Add me to the list of October birthday gals! Best month ever! And despite the awkwardness, I love the dress for your family photos!

  3. I hear ya on the awkward selfies - that's totally me too.

  4. I love the fall decor! So pretty and festive. There's just something about fall decorations that makes me happy :)

  5. That dress. Hot mama!!!! I'm totally the worst at selfies too. I'm actually fascinated by the people who are able to do amazing ones - because I lack that skill!!

  6. My sister does little sexy, smirk faces in her selfies and what the bleep? I don't think I can make my face look like that. Sexy or smirky. Sigh.

    That owl candle is so cute!

  7. Oh my gosh have so much fun on the blogger date, love her! Happy weekend! xo

  8. Love the fall decor and Kaye kissing the pumpkins. Sweet! Have so much fun in ATL this weekend! And I am a totally awkward selfie taker too. :)

  9. I love those fall colours too! I'm an awkward selfie taker too, I just can't seem to look like a normal human being.

  10. Your girly is so cute!!! Also, Nutella all day every day! Have a blast in Atlanta that will be so fun!

  11. Those booties are awesome, love them with that dress! And you rock the short dress well. And the pumpkins are great - did you say you got them at Pottery Barn?

  12. I'm that way with outfit and regular selfies too. Crazy face?! Excited face? Pursed lips? Smile? I can never seem to decide what I'm supposed to do. Have so much fun in Atlanta!

  13. Where in the world is that dress from? I am in LOVE! I want. Annnnd being super duper short, while it won't be long, it might be juussstttt right on my very vertically challenged frame! Also super duper jeal that you were at 10 Barrel. I just booked my Idaho flight seeing that photo!

  14. That dress is so cute! I hope you chose that one for your pictures! It's nice when you can take the littles out for dinner. I did that last weekend and it was great!

  15. I'm glad I'm not the only momma of two who rocks short dresses, and short shorts!!! Gotta keep the hubby happy! Have a fun trip!

  16. My 17 year old son is fit and eats well but put a jar of nutella in my house and he cannot control himself. I'd never subject him to costco size.

    Read my blog and let me know if you think I'm overreacting about my target experience.


  17. Hope you have a super trip! We celebrate 5 of 6 birthdays from Sept 22-Oct 20th.....it's my favorite time of year, we celebrate big and then we are done!

  18. Yay for going to Atlanta and double yay for meeting blog friends
    I wish I could pull off short dresses, I think I look funny
    My kids are only a few days shy of being 2 years apart too. I feel your stress :)

  19. Woohoo for blogger meet ups!! Have the best time in Atlanta!
    Ummm, those pumpkins? LOVE.
    Selfies are the hardest. The. Hardest. But the dress - super cute!
