Happy Friday, Friends!!! I love a long weekend, but WHOA MAMA did this week fly!!! I feel like I crammed a full week of school into four days with no middle! I. AM. WIPED!
As always, Erika, Narci and I are sharing our Friday Favorites and would love for you to link up and share as well!
The awesome lady who runs our after school care program send me this picture of Mason last week. He made himself a suit of armor :) His imagination is my FAVORITE!
And then this photo of him from 5 years ago came across my Facebook feed!!! Look how stinkin' cute he is!!!
This picture from Luke's Kindergarten soccer team two years ago also came across my feed and it's one of my most favorite pictures ever ;)
And this one also :) When Tab starts football season Erika and I try to get together on Friday or Saturday night. Where is Bowen? Why is Mason not wearing pants? Who made all that mess??? :) hahaha
Funny thing about our kids... Erika or I had a a baby every April for 6 years. Well... except for Bowen who was born in November... but we'll count him because he's extra cute:) In April Luke will turn 9 (hold me), Ebby Lee will turn 8, Nixon will turn 7, Mason will turn 6, Bowen will turn 4.5 and GG will be 4. Crazy, right???
Dave has been sending me "Happy Morning pictures" again and they're my FAVORITE part of the morning!
Earlier this week Griffin had a great view from a 5th story window. Watching the cars and people was her FAVORITE!
Every year a group of girlfriends and I do a scarf exchange the week after Labor Day in an attempt to usher in Fall :) It's one of my FAVORITE nights of the year and this year was no exception.
At our first scarf exchange only Shay knew I was pregnant (I think I had found out the day before) and so I wrote on a newborn onesie "Coming April 2013" and stuck it in my scarf bag. I don't remember who opened it, but I do remember the finger pointing that went around the table and the vehement denials all my friends gave. Keep in mind that I had been VERY VOCAL about being done after Luke and Mason so when the process of elimination pointed to me all I could do was turn beet red and cry. hahaha :) The next year I brought 4 month old GG with me to the exchange... so you can see why it holds a special place in my heart.
I brought back the black nails this past week - I love fun colors, but black MAY just be my FAVORITE.
Mason brought home this work page earlier this week and I added it to the save pile because look at what he drew on the papers the kids in the picture are coloring on!
Love how he put the flower and the face in the right positions and everything!
Yesterday morning Dave had to run by the country club before taking Griffin to Miss Lisa's house and Griffin played in kids club while he did a few things. The sweet girls there are AMAZING at doing hair and look at how sweet she looks in her braid!
I have ZERO hair ability and so I tend to get really impressed and excited when they fix her hair :) I snapped these pictures when we got home and she'd played and napped on her hair all day.
And then let's talk about how the side of her hair was a HEART!!! I mean! So cool! :)
Something that has NOT been my FAVORITE this week is the weather!!! Look at this! It's been AWFUL!!! Fingers crossed that it cools off this weekend.
I mentioned this mug last week, but it's worth mentioning again because LOOK HOW CUTE! I ordered mine online and it came yesterday and I absolutely love it.
The floral goes all the way around and it is even prettier in person!
Look at how cute it is with these pens in it for a teacher gift!
And when I ordered the mug I also ordered this tea towel.
The embroidery is perfection! And I love that it's festive without being too crazy :)
Last up on my list is a new FAVORITE book at our house, Papillon!
Papillon is a VERY fluffy cat... so fluffy that he floats! Throughout the book his owner is looking for ways to keep him from floating away...
... and it is so so so cute!
My kids all laugh super hard at the page where the dresses him up in an attempt to keep him on the ground ;)
And they love when she tries to feed him to weigh him down.
The illustrations are precious and the story is even cuter.
Enter below for a chance to win a Papillon Prize Pack including the book, a $50 Petco Gift Card and a set of kitty magnets! SO FUN!!!
We have a FULL weekend ahead - we're hosting a wedding shower, going to Bingo night and (hopefully) taking some serious naps. I hope you have a fun weekend planned as well!
