Birthday // Thank You // Miss You Printables.

I've been creating some NEW printables lately and it makes my heart so happy.  There's something SO therapuetic about designing new tags.  I love it. And I hope you love them too!

I feel like I'm always in need of a quick and easy birthday gift to be able to hand out to friends and neighbors.

And who doesn't LOVE a bottle of fresh soap 

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!

This Weekend:

 * Friday, I lit my pumpkin spice candle and decorated our house for Halloween.  Even though it's still in the 90s here, I couldn't wait any longer.

* I grocery shopped.

{Locals - Fry's Fri/Sat deals always has me giddy!}

* London came home with a perfect and I mean PERFECT report card on Friday afternoon.

We celebrated with pedicures.

* Joe and I popped popcorn Friday night and watched a 2 hour Dateline.  DID YOU SEE IT? It was titled "The Truth about Pam" and IT WAS JUICY!!! Best one I've seen in a long time.  {Yes, I need a life}.

* Saturday we dropped London off at dance and the boys got fresh new hair cuts...

We stopped at my least favorite place in the world on Saturday...

Grant downed TWO Costco dogs.  

And then we swung by the church so I could practice the dreaded organ for Sunday.

What a beast!

* Churchey-church on Sunday.


As we gathered during the second hour of church and listened to President Nelson and other church leaders introduce the new program for children and youth...I felt as though my heart might burst!!

This new program is such a breath of fresh air!

It is inspired and something that we can ALL benefit from right now.
It made me emotional really, just hearing about it.

I am so, so excited for it to begin!!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
The kids are officially on FALL BREAK for 2 weeks now!

No more bugging them about bed times and homework.
I might be just as excited as them.

We are headed to California for the week!!
Joe had a business trip there already planned so the kids and I figured we'd tag along.

Be sure to follow me on Instagram @azmarci as I post daily updates of our happs.  I won't be blogging too much this week but will return next week! 

Happy {almost!} October!!!
It's my FAVORITE month of the year!

This Weekend:

* Friday morning I woke up exhuasted.  
I had to run one errand and that was to Target.

Since I was too lazy to go to the grocery store to get stuff for breakfast, I drove through Panera and bought my first pumpkin muffin top of the season.

Just as good as I remember!

I feel like Target is getting a little TOO fancy.
Does anyone else agree?

And it's like...the fancier they get, the more they raise their prices on clothes and shoes. I'm not so sure how I feel about this.

I had to laugh at these false eyelashes in the $ bins because they actually look like SO MANY EYELASHES that normal people wear TODAY! 🙊🙊🙊

{The eyelash game has gotten a 'lil outta control.  Who's with me?}

* I spent the rest of the afternoon lounging around on the couch with Cubby.  What would I do without him?

* Friday night date night at Bobby-Q's.

Their brisket was to die for!

The real winner of the evening was their donuts that they serve you at the end of dinner.


* Saturday morning we attended the funeral of a dear friend of ours who Joe taught in Sunday School at church.

While it was very sad, it gives us great hope to know that we'll see him again some day.

The closing song was one of my favorites.
I couldn't finish the last verse without crying.

* We picked up the kids afterwards and headed to
 Panda Express for lunch.

Why are my boys incapable of posing decently when I ask them to for a picture? 😅

While at lunch, we discovered that Joe had a 'grandpa' eyebrow hair that was curling down and almost into his eye.

I think it was even gray!!!!
Can you see it?

We laughed SO hard.

Thankfully....London yanked it out.

* We grocery shopped afterwards...

This sight at the store makes me OH SO happy!

* Churchey-church on Sunday.

It was my FAVORITE Sunday of the year!
Our primary program!!

London rocked it with her speaking part.
It makes me a little sad to know that she only has one more year of this and then she'll be 12 and in Young Womens!!!

Also - how am I just now discovering THIS sweet primary song?
It's my new favorite.
And yes...yes it did make me cry.

* We grilled steaks for dinner, took a walk around the neighborhood and finished the evening off with a little AFV.

Fun Finds Friday {Finally!}

Ohhhhhhh Target.
How I've missed you.

I feel like this post should probably be sponsored by Target... but it's not.

These are just allllll the things that I've found today that are SUPER cute that I wanna make sure my readers are aware of.

Can you believe it's been 6 weeks since I've even stepped foot inside of a Target? I know.  Crazy, huh?  I think that's like a world record or something for me.

Since my surgery I just haven't felt like doing too much until recently.  And even still...if I do do too much...I'm still pooped afterwards so I'm still trying to find my balance. 

{Haha...I used the words do-do and pooped in the same sentence.  I may be almost 41 but I still have the brain of an 8 year old.}'re here for the FINDS so let's get going!

Cuuuuuute glitzzed out Halloween trees and wreaths.
{I'm pretty sure 'glitzzed' isn't even a word but who cares, right?}

I don't think I will EVER get tired of stripes and plaids.
These will make great little dessert plates for Halloween parties.  And only $1!

LOTS of black succulents in pots {artificial of course} that could really spook up a shelf in your house.

Spooky not your thing?
I LOVE this bright orange pumpkin succulent!

You this not the cutest thing you'e ever seen?
I bought the green one.

Lottttssss and lots of pumpkins to choose from...

Wool, felt....

And my favorite! 
Gingham and buffalo plaid...
FOR ONLY $1 each!!!!

So many cute canvas banners...

This one would be cute to hang during the month of November.

DARLING 2 liter soda bottle labels for Halloween!
$1 and SIX come in the package!

It's officially SOUP season...

Aren't these the cutest soup bowls EVER?
I think it would be fun to pair one of these up with a dry soup mix of some sort and give it to a friend!

Okay I wanted to buy like 10 of these but since they were $5 each I settled for one. {You're welcome, Joe.}

They're sorta like tin-ish and they have a little pre-lit votive inside of it.  My plan is to make some teeny-tiny bunting to go across the front of it and then change it out with each holiday as it sets on one of my shelves downstairs.

Cute, huh?

You guys, the fact that I even considered buying this shirt {because Cubby!} makes me question who I even am anymore and what I've even become.

{I didn't buy it}.

On the endcaps in the party section I found these darling paper plates.  And yes, I am sucker for paper plates.

I love these for TWO reasons.

1. Their colors
2. The big plate is OVAL which means it's BIG which means you could totally host a dinner with friends and use these!

{A lot of paper plates are just too dang small for a big meal!}

Let the BOO-ing season begin!
These are just cute little boxes that you could fill up with candy and leave on someone's doorstep.

Favor boxes! 
Would be fun to fill with caramel corn or something and then tie it up with cellophane and ribbon.

And lastly, why do I love these SO VERY much?
I wanna buy em so bad, aren't they fun?
