Does anyone else feel like this week was super long? Gosh, it seemed to drag on and on for me. And to be really honest, it’s been a rough week. Life just kind of kicked my butt this week–especially in the motherhood department. It turns out being a mom to three is amazing, but it’s also about ten times harder than being a mom to just two. There was one moment in particular this week during bedtime when all three kids were calling for me at once. Well the baby was crying, but you get the idea. Each of them was genuinely upset about something and needed me to be there for them, but obviously I couldn’t be in three places at once. And honestly, I hate that feeling, but it happens several times a day–pulled in multiple directions and struggling to give each of them the full attention they deserve. It seriously breaks my heart and brings me to tears to know I can’t be everything to all of them at the same time. I know I’m only two months into this mom-of-three-thing and I’m still figuring it out, but dang. It sure is hard on this mama’s heart to know that I can’t do it all even though I desperately want to. I’m just praying that God gives me the ability to be the best mom I can be to each of them and that they all feel heard and cherished. That’s really all that matters to me. Anyway, I should stop blabbing about my emotional woes of the week and get onto today’s Friday Favorites post. Today is all about table linens and my new chargers!
I ordered these windmill inspired galvanized chargers last week and they finally arrived a few days ago. I’ve never seen any quite like these and I am in loooooooove with them. I mean, how darn pretty is the combo of the white scalloped plates and galvanized metal?!
I also ordered these laced trim napkins to go along with my new chargers. I love the vintage vibe these have and that lace is just perfect. I always love paring really feminine things like these napkins with the more rustic pieces like the charger. The combo just works together so well.
I’ve also been getting a lot of questions about the table runner I share in about 95% of my dining room photos. You can see it in this shot I shared in this fall post last week:
This is the Blue Villa Stripe Table Runner and it’s actually on sale right now for less than ten bucks. And the best part is that it’s water resistant. A few weeks ago my darling Allie actually spilled orange juice on it during breakfast and it just wiped right up. Easy peasy and no stain whatsoever. I had no idea it would do that, but I was very grateful! This is definitely a good buy and it comes in a few different colors options too.
And since I’m a bit obsessed with farmhouse style table linens, I also rounded up some great affordable options for you guys. I found lots of pretty napkins and a few table runners that are all gorgeous.

Thanks for coming by the blog today and listening to my ramblings. I hate being a Debbie Downer, but this week was just hard on my mama heart and I like to be real with you guys, even when it isn’t always pretty. I know many of you have probably felt that same feeling of not being enough or falling short in one way or another when it comes to motherhood. But at the end of the day, all that really matters is that we do our best and give ourselves some grace in the process, right? Right.
I hope you all have a great weekend. I’ll see you back here on Monday. xoxo
