Five on Friday - And the winner is...

It's Friday y'all!!! Even though I'm out for summer and every day is kind of the weekend, I am PUMPED because Dave is off until 4:00 tomorrow!  Those of y'all with spouses in the service industry will get my excitement :) hahaha

As always, I'm keeping today's Five on Friday EXTRA random!

- ONE -
 My new BFF

I am ridiculously modest.  Like - borderline weirdo.  I HATE clingy clothes.  HATE THEM.  I'm just not "into" form fitting... never have been.  I take that back.... when I was in college and weighed a solid 95 lbs I ROCKED some low rise jeans and tiny fitted tees.  Now, not so much.  I love drapey and unique and so this Flounce Tee from Anthropologie and I have become fast friends.

It's light and drapey and fun... and yes... that's a WHOLE bunch of laundry and a baby Ariel doll in the background.  AND a strainer in the bathroom sink.  #momlife

The scarf is the one I've been PREACHING about for a sweet EVER.. so go ahead and order two!  And the earrings are the Kate Spade studs in Fluorescent Pink.  I have a lot of hair (understatement of the year!!!) and I love how they "pop" even behind the mane. :)

What? What??? Another totally glamorous pic with wet towels in the background :)

I big puffy heart love MCA

I shared this on my Facebook page, but wanted to share it here as well.  If you have a few minutes you need to check out this video about Life at MCA.  I am about to teach my ninth year there and Luke is starting his third year and we couldn't be more proud or happy about being Mustangs.

WIPED out :)

This week has been exhausting - but in a great way.  VBS in the mornings, swim lessons in the afternoons and lots of fun in between (add on top of that that I have picked up a stomach bug somewhere along the way - ICK!) and the kiddos are all WIPED!

There have been lots of early bedtimes and car naps going on...

... and despite being a total trooper even G was having a hard time making it through dinner :)


Sidenote: are you not obsessing over her glittery clippy??? I can't wait to share the vendor with y'all and do a DOUBLE giveaway next week!!!

And the winner is...


WOO HOO!!! Congrats, Elaine!!! Shoot me an email and I can get the gift card to you OR I can apply it to an order this weekend :)

Enjoy your weekends, friends!!!

  2. LOVE that shirt! I'm so over clingy clothes these days...ever since I had children.....HA! I also love how you paired it with the scarf, but I'm seriously wondering, does that get really hot in the summers? I love the look of it, but I'm just not convinced I could pull it off in the hot, humid summers of Virginia?

    1. Hey! A lot of times the scarf is off by the end of the day... but I typically don't find it too bad when I'm at work or running errands. :)

  5. I am super impressed that you were able to do swim lessons and VBS while you had a stomach bug, mom of the year status in my book! We have had strep at my house and life has pretty much come to a halt to make room for extra sleeping, popsicles and antibiotics. Love all the outfits, especially Griffin's, and I am definitely going to have to get some of those scarves.

  9. I'm a flouncy and drapey kind of girl too! I have over 40+ dresses in my closet and maybe 5 of them are form fitting! I love seeing the cutesy and modern ways that you dress! It always gives me such great inspiration!

  10. G looks so cute in her clippy, so darn cute!!! Love her pics in her highchair, sweet girl! Oh and not to forget your boys cause I think they are equally as cute (even while they sleep in the car)....don't want to show favorites, hehehe!!! Happy weekend!

  15. Just curious about the paper hanging on your bathroom mirror? Is it some inspirational message or motivation for the day? I love your "yes" mom philosophy. I rethink my answers when my 14 & 18 yr. old ask me questions. Love your true life pictures of a not so perfect room. As moms, we know this is more typical than the super clean rooms that most blogs reveal. Luv your blog, your energy, ideas, & "realness"...lol

  16. I saw the name Elaine and about DIED! Ha! Is that green scarf the same one that Shay talked about today? I love the color! Looks like y'all have had a great week!

  17. Aww sweet G falling asleep in her high chair! I can relate! ha!

    Have a great weekend, lady!

  18. That white shirt is amazing!!! And I'll say it again, you have the cutest kids!!!

  19. I think in a society where we tend to dress up our lives to make them seem perfect, I really appreciate the way you post pictues that maybe have toys in the background, or the kids aren't always smiling. I feel like you really show your readers the real you, and that's so awesome and encouraging to me.

    And also.. Can I move to Texas?! That video of your school was just amazing. I'm praying about where my son will go to school after Pre-K and I'd really love for him to attend a Christian school so it was awesome seeing how all the glory went back to God during it. Amazing!

  22. Girl, you could rock any clothes! You always look amazing. I wish my wardrobe was so cute. I'm LOVING that you love flawy (and non form fitting shirts) too because ever since I had my baby (almost two years ago so he's not so much a baby haha), I've been all about comfy, non-form fitting clothes.

    So sweet poor G was so tired she fell asleep in her dinner. Such a cute picture though!
