Happy Friday! I am glad it is a long weekend. We survived the first week of school. Happy to report we only had minor technical issues. But, it felt like a long week! We are ready for a break. Anyway, as usual, I am sharing some Favorites in home, style and family.

First Day of School

It did not feel like the first day of school at all. The night before school started the kids were in disbelief that they had to go to school. I will admit that it was really hard to get in the school spirit when they were starting the first day online learning!

But there are some advantages to online learning like not having to get up quite as early. Plus, the kids are appreciating endless snacks and hot lunches.

We kept with our back-to-school traditions including chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast and our first day of school pictures.

Oversized Sweatshirt for Fall

The last several Fridays I have shared some favorite joggers with you. This week, I found the coziest over sized sweatshirt that would be perfect for leggings or joggers!

This cozy top is on sale right now and it comes in 18 different colors and patterns. I ordered the leopard print. It can be hard to find long tunics or tops that look good over leggings. So, these over sized sweatshirts fit the bill!

Another sweatshirt option is this other oversized sweatshirt . It is also so cute and 50% off right now!

I love the golden color ! This top is also a great deal and is on sale!

Mini Declutter Challenge

Are you craving routine and organization in your home right now? Keri and I started a Mini Fall Clear the Clutter Challenge this week. We are spending 14 days in September working on small decluttering projects around the home. Don’t worry if you have not started. You can use this list to work on your own pace.

Two Week Declutter Challenge #organization #cleartheclutter #clutterfree

It is a good idea to declutter your home now before all of the seasonal decor comes out! I am going to finish this declutter challenge before I put out all of our fall decorations. So maybe I will be motivated to move a little faster than this schedule.

Follow along with me on Instagram to stay updated on this Mini Fall Challenge!

Kirklands Fall Decor

One of my favorite places to shop for fall decor is Kirklands. I have found some cute fall decorations at Kirklands the last few years. Last weekend, I had a chance to pop into my local store and I was so inspired! This weekend, Kirklands has 25% off the entire store. So, now is the time to add to cart! Here are a few of the best fall decorations at Kirklands.



This yellow pillow came home with and it looks good as an accent color on my family room couch!

Fall and buffalo check are a match made in heaven:)



I brought this mug home with me too!


Be sure to check out Kirklands either online or in person this weekend if you are looking for some fall decorations!


Anyway, I hope you have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend! I am linking up with Erika, Narci and Andrea for this Friday Favorites post, so be sure to head over to their blogs as well! Hope you have a great weekend!

    I love the oversized sweatshirt. I wanted the second one in red but it was out in my size! I managed to declutter my t-shirt drawer this week. I really do want to do the things in the challenge!
