what to buy a 7 year old

Well Friends, it's almost time to usher in the month of November. For our family, November holds lots of birthdays, including my oldest little farmer who will turn seven this year. My Farmer and I are so proud of the young man he is becoming and are humbled that God would allow us the privilege to be his parents.

As I look at the gift list I've put together based on the comments he's made over the last few weeks, I feel a tiny bit justified in feeling as though he's seven going on fifteen. Here are a few things he's specifically asked for and then a few I just know he would love.

one productive week

Happy Friday, Friends!

I have been uber productive this week around the house. I imagine it has something to do with the fact that my Littlest Farmer is only getting up once at night. It feels awesome to not be walking around in zombie mode every day.

Now, let's chat a little bit about my favorites from the week and move on to the weekend!

2018 Planner... I am swooning over my new Erin Condren planner and the goodies I ordered with it. Who doesn't love planners and stickers? Since I'm trying out the new hardbound version, I picked up a magnetic bookmark too. Hurry up 2018, so I can use this planner every day!

currently + a giveaway

Say hello to the last full week of October! Can you believe it? While making our grocery run this past week, I was taken a little off guard by the fact that Christmas had already arrived at Walmart. I then realized it is only two months away. Yikes!

Well, I know I've been a little hit or miss in the blogosphere lately - I blame it on sleep deprivation and adjusting to being a mother of three. Is that fair? Will you forgive me? The good news is that I am feeling a little more in control and human every day. Cha-ching!

In light of my sporadic absence, I want to share some of the things I have been loving on lately. I have good intentions of sharing these each week during Friday Favorites and then chaos ensues or sleep wins out and I neglect to get a post up. So, in honor of all those posts that didn't happen, here's what I'm currently loving.

five tips for a new mom

Happy Friday, Lovelies! My littlest farmer is already five weeks old. Can you believe it? My time home with him is flying. I'm trying to tell myself to enjoy these sleep deprived nights because it won't be long before I'd trade them back in a nanosecond for the crazy hectic work days that I know are coming.

For this Friday's post, I thought I'd share some of my favorite things I've learned as a new mom - a few of which I came by the hard way and others I most likely will never master. So, whether it's your first child or your third, here are five tips every new mom needs to put into practice.

my cesarean birth story

Even though I haven't written birth stories for my first two children, I'd like to get the third one down while it's still fresh in my mind. I may try to capture the others in the near future - that only seems fair - but odds aren't in their favor. 

My first two children entered the world via cesarean, therefore it was a given that my third would as well. My surgery was scheduled one week before Baby's due date, and I would have bet money that I wouldn't make it to the scheduled date. Little Baby proved me wrong.

table for five

Happy Friday, Friends! I hope this week has treated you well. Even more, I hope the last month has been good to you.

I managed to churn out a post on Monday for the TBB Asks monthly link up, but other than that, I haven't posted since the morning of Little Baby's arrival. So, this Friday's post of favorites will be a highlight reel of the last month beginning with the ultimate of favorites... Little Baby.

tbb aks - fall theme

Hey there, Lovelies!! I'm technically still out of the office but couldn't pass up participating in the monthly TBB Asks. This has become one of my favorite link ups! Bonus - it's all about Fall, my favorite season of the year.

By the way, Little Baby and I are doing well and I'm hoping to return to the blogosphere soon. Right now, however, sleep or something requiring zero brain cells wins out all hours of the day. I mean, this post itself has taken several hours since I've only been able to work on it a little at a time.
