Friday Favorites + Nashville Here We Come!

Happy Friday! I am especially excited about today for many reasons. One, it is October!! Officially my favorite month of the year. And two, we are taking off for Nashville tomorrow for a little mini vacation. Initially we were planning to take our annual trip to Iowa to visit family, but as the time grew closer, we realized how crazy we were to think that the kids could handle a 14 hour car ride, even broken up into two days of travel with a hotel stay in the middle. So quick change of plans, we are postponing our trip for a few weeks/months, and instead, meeting Brandon’s family in Nashville for the weekend! We are super excited, and thanks to all of your recommendations on Instagram (@jlgarvin) I think we will have plenty of fun things to eat do & see! 😉
Sharing a few of my favorite photos & finds from the week, hope you enjoy!

Target finds (including this sweater & this nailpolish), yummy candle scents on the chalkboard which can only mean one thing (stay tuned!) & Harper’s first soccer practice with coach daddy. Doesn’t get much cuter!

This recipe for caramel apple cream cheese spread is definitely on our must-make list for Fall.

I came across the cutest etsy shop this week & I am in love with everything! Black & white spotted pattern & soft organic fabrics get me every time.

I loved this video, thoughts on how quickly life passes you by as you live a hectic lifestyle. Although it totally made me tear up a bit.

Hope you all enjoy your weekend & get a little taste of some delicious Fall weather!! XO

  1. Gah your family is just to die for! And that video totally made me cry as well…in the middle of a Target isle…with the doddler toddler trying to make a run for the toys! When you take your pictures do you take them with your camera or your phone? And either way what do you use to edit? I am trying to get better at this and your pictures are always sooo beautiful! As always thank you so much for putting up with my wacky questions and your amazing advice!

  2. The Carmel apple cream cheese spread looks amazing.. I do one very similar but add brown sugar to the cream cheese… blend it up.. spread on a plate and add score bits to the top along with carmel sauce… yummmy!!!

  3. I'm so excited to hear that you guys are heading to Nashville! We live in Franklin, which is about 20 minutes from downtown, and we absolutely love this area – so much to do in terms of food, drinks, and fun!

    I'm pretty positive I have both the sweater AND the nail polish – both are perfect items for this time of year!


  4. I adore your blog! I've been following you ever since you were preg w/Harper!!! Now 3 babies later its still my favorite read. Going to buy that cardigan! Thanks for the video it's an eye opener. Enjoy the family mini vaca 🙂

  5. Maybe I missed it somewhere, but where did you find that Peek a Boooo onesie? I've read your blog for a while, but haven't gotten to enjoy the baby clothes posts…until now. Having a girl to dress up is awesome! 🙂
