Friday Favorites: 30 School Days Left Edition

So my students put a countdown calendar on my board this week and informed me that there are only THIRTY SCHOOL DAYS LEFT!!!  I'm sorry... what?!?!  The end of the year is CRAZY and I can't wait for all the fun (and for summer, I'm excited about that too).   Swimming lessons are on the calendar, the boys have been registered for VBS and I've started my summer project list (the list of projects I aim to accomplish every summer and never ever make a dent in. hahaha).   I'm planning the middle school Spring Semi-Formal which is always super fun and I can't wait to show y'all which Prom dress Anna Grace picked out!  

And speaking of Prom, last Friday I told y'all about how I "helped" (and by "helped" I mean that I did the whole thing) Andy make a sign asking Hannah to Prom and lots of you wanted to know if she said yes...


well... she did!  How cute is Hannah in her converse! :)
Sidenote: Andy is a giant.

Up first on my FAVORITES list today is my new FAVORITE lamp!  Would you believe me if I told you it's from Wal-Mart?!?!?!  'Cause it is!



You can find the lamp base HERE and the shade HERE.

Isn't it pretty???




 I've mentioned before how Dave sends me a pic (or pics!) of Griffin and Mason every morning while I'm at school.  Typically Mason is in a rush to get inside Miss Lisa's house and see his friends, but GG has been KILLING it with her poses this week :)  These two days were my FAVORITES!


I can't with the leg!!!


She's a total ham :)


This eCard came across my newsfeed this week and I about died laughing.  SO TRUE!!!
It was probably my FAVORITE Facebook post all week :)


This sweet boy was "bear of the week" this week!  He got to make a poster of his FAVORITE things and watching him do the entire poster himself was one of my FAVORITE moments this week.  I will totally admit I had to use A LOT of restraint in suggesting stickers, glitter, construction paper, etc - but the end result couldn't have turned out more perfect. 



During my small group on Wednesday my girls and I ate cinnamon rolls and watched Joanna Gaines' testimony.  


Like the rest of America, I LOOOOOVE Fixer Upper and I thought her testimony was something the girls could benefit from hearing.  We watched a short clip of Fixer Upper, then watched her testimony and then we had so much fun discussing their "dreams" for their futures.  Getting to know these girls outside of Math Class and share with and pray for them is my FAVORITE.


If Griffin disappears, chances are she's hanging out in her new FAVORITE spot.  She is in love with our Instagram Photo Wall and pointing out all the "baby" pictures.  I'm going to have to update these soon since she's the baby in all of them and she doesn't recognize herself. hahaha


This isn't the best picture, but it might be my FAVORITE... backpack on, singing and marching with her little bestie :)


My FAVORITE store is doing free shipping on orders over $150 (use code FS150) and here are a few of my FAVORITE picks from their sale section (because.,.. bargain!)

This striped/floral pullover would be great with white linen pants and this peasant top by Meadow Rue is breezy for Spring and Summer but would look really cute with cords and a jacket for Fall.
 

I am a TOTAL sucker for the back detail on this flannel shirt, and I am all about all things black and white so this tunic is right up my alley right now. 
 

Sweet, sweet Tara from Tara Lynn's boutique sent me a few things this week and this dress for Griffin was in the bag.  As soon as I pulled it out she squealed and screeched, "let it go!!!!"


 


  
 I think it's safe to say she has a new FAVORITE outfit ;)


Tara also sent me this GORGEOUS crochet cardigan and I had a total boho moment with it yesterday :)


Griffin's current FAVORITE food is yogurt and this is the look I get MULTIPLE times a day just begging for me to open the fridge :)


Last up, Luke got to bring home "Mustang" the bear this week as part of his "Bear of the Week" duties.  We were supposed to take pictures of our adventures with Mustang and Luke wanted a picture of Jack Bauer with him.  I snapped these and can't stop smiling...



He found one of Griffin's paci's behind the pillow and then this happened...



Lastly... don't forget to enter my giveaway for two pairs of monogrammed converse!  And if you've already entered, go back and get a couple more entries because I added a "follow me on IG" option to earn another :) 

   Have a FANTASTIC weekend, friends!!! :)

  22. I just found your blog and I've been reading through the archives...I am not an animal person, but Jack Bauer is one of the cutest things I've ever seen. The paci pics and the bath in the sink from another post are killing me (with the cuteness)!
