we had dinner with friends yesterday. hailee, you're a great cook! that curry and coconut white rice you made really hit the spot!

the pumpkins are out, and it's fabulousss! and there are more coming!

this weekend we took a trip to the american girl store. aida mae was in heaven. we brought her little bestie with us. they rode the escalator (i swear that was their favorite part). they stared in aw at all the tiny little things, and made lists for christmas. it was precious. they held hands and giggled, and i got to see a glimpse of the wonderful friend aida mae is. it was heaven.

i want to talk a little about friendship. with the loss of my dad, and my mom's illness, i've learned that a deep friendship is worth its weight in gold. 

there's something about a friend turning up at your door the moment you need them, but couldn't ask. it's a hug they give you, that they didn't know you needed. it's a "i'm thinking of you" text, on a hard day. it's the "check your doorstep" text when you've got a splitting migraine. those aren't friends. they're angels. i believe it's how god shows us he loves us, and that he knows our trials and pain. 

i hope to be a friend like that. i hope to act when the spirit prompts me to, and to show up for friends when they need me most. i know just how much those moments mean to me, and i hope to be able to do the same for others.

happy monday, y'all! "make new friends, but keep the old. one is silver and the others gold." here's to gold friendships.

xo,

Halloween + Fall Decor Is Out

 


will my hair never grow the same? is this what almost 30 brings? i mean i can overlook the skin changes, but hair. come on!

i love these shoes. you might not love them, but i'm about to order a second pair. yes, i said it!

this amazon dupe of my free people sweater is way better than expected. i bet i wear it more than the real ones.

in college there was a girl that said, "i hate when people add extra letters to words to exaggerate them." i don't remember her name, but i do vividly remember the comment. now, every time i add extra letters to exaggerate i think of her disapproving face. whoopssss.

my fall decor was put out the second day of fall. 

clearly, i'm proud of my self-restraint. 

though, i'm stoked to see the pumpkins coming out of storage and popping up in rooms throughout our home. feels festive and fresh.

Easy Weeknight Fish Tacos

What you'll need-

2-4 tilapia fillets *I would recommend 1-2 fillets per adult*

Garlic powder

Goya Adobo (linked it here for you)

Seasoning salt (linked it here for you)

Mrs. Dash Lemon Pepper (linked it here for you)

Guacamole

Flour tortillas

Hot sauce

Pico (cut up tomatoes, onions, and cilantro mixed with fresh lime juice and a dash of salt)


What you'll do-

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Put parchment paper down on baking sheet.

Spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Put tilapia on tray.

Sprinkle with onion and garlic powder, Goya Adobo, seasoning salt, and Mrs. Dash Lemon Pepper. 

Bake at 375 degrees for 20-30 min. Keep an eye on it because some cuts can cook quicker.

When the fish is done, place it into a flour tortilla (we cook our tortillas on the stovetop). Scoop some guacamole on top, and add the pico and hot sauce!

That's it! Simple, and so yummy. Thanks for reading!

XO,

Mrs. Measom

not a wtf tuesday yet

the way my husband looked at me yesterday was priceless. he was noticing my lady lumps #stillgotit.

we are watching jane the virgin, and that show sucks me in. i am team rafael and love alba. i also like petra...though she nuts.

i read this a little bit ago and wanted to share, "that trials don't happen to you, they happen for you." i think that is such a powerful message, and a great way to look at things.

having to throw my jean jacket on while pumping gas this morning made me thankful it's cooling down. but let's be real, this is texas and it doesn't get cold 'til january.

aida mae really wants to be a "chef and a farmer." she's fabulous, you guys. she's truly my best friend wearing the cutest tiny pink shoes.

dc is a soccer champion. i love watching him excel as a teammate and as a player. he changes on the field into this competitive (but still nice) go-getter. it's awesome to watch.

halloween / fall decor update- i haven't done any fall decorating yet (except for putting out sherly), and i am kind of loving it. 

it's nice not to be rushing into a holiday. currently, we are decked out for football season. in our house, it's the most important season anyway. though, i have a feeling the halloween decor will be out very soon!

thanks for readin', y'all! see you tomorrow! same time, same place!

suu football and our weekend


when i put together this outfit, you bet your bum i was channeling my inner princess diana. she was a style icon.

every time my hairdresser says i need a trim, i cry a little inside. i know, i know, it's just a trim. it's harmless, and will make my hair look healthy. blah, blah, blah. but really, all i hear is buh-bye hair i worked so hard to grow. wah wah wah.

nothing beats getting your hair highlighted when you're blonde. seriously, there's nothing like a refresh.

we hit up barnes and nobles this weekend, and somehow came home with legos. riddle me how that happened.

i pulled out the ingredients for dinner tonight. aida mae look a look at everything i had out, and said "mom are you making our favorite chicken?" she already knows the ingredients needed to make her favorite meal. i was so proud.

my husband's brother was in town. he coaches football, and his team was in texas. my husband was a happy man to see the game + his brother. love you brady, but wish taycee and blakely came!

Fashion, Coffee, and God





i had a sweet little morning date with my man. we went to starbucks and talked about all the things. 

i want to wear lipstick today, but i hate having to reapply. yuck.

chatted with my favorite barista. he told me he was the one who cooks for him and his spouse. i said $7.99 for a year subscription to my favorite cooking magazine was well worth it. he followed with a, "yes, girl! i'm just waiting for someone to invest $7.99 into that subscription for me." i've got you bo!

i'm so grateful for good friends and my family. 

if you're having a hard time, or if you're fearful, just remember you're not alone, and fear does not come from god. 

i felt prompted to share this today and i hope it helps one of you. we are told in mathew 10:26-42 "do not be afraid." it shows up again in phillippians 4:16 saying, "rejoice in the lord always; again i will say, rejoice. let your reasonableness be known to everyone. the lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to god. and the peace of god, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in jesus christ." i bless you with love and hope and faith. you are not alone sister, and we are all praying for you.

i'm no seamstress


it's official, jalapeno on salmon is delicious. my oh my, is it grand! 

the barista at starbucks that usually helps me was wearing a wedding ring today. he gushed over getting married, all the while he was beaming. it was incredible to see. made today feel a little more awesome. #theworldisfullofgood

i don't have a clue what i will make for dinner tonight, but i do know it better be delicious. ya'll DC told me last night, "i only likes things that have a lot of flavor!" that's my kid!

looking up all the diy halloween / fall kids crafts. aida is just like her grandmother she loves to create and it's precious. fair warning, this mom is not crafty. pray for me. i once sewed my finger to a an ottoman. clearly, im no seamstress.
