Happy Friday, friends! Short and sweet today because I've been battling a migraine for about 2.5 days and things have been ROUGH!  I'm praying that the weather breaks today and the pressure settles and my head stops feeling like it may explode ;)

My first FAVORITE today was the boys first golf tournament of the season!

Girls Spring Gift Guide

 Today I'm sharing some fun finds for girls this Spring... Easter baskets, birthdays, etc.  

First up -  this swimsuit!  I ordered this for Griffin and it is puff-sleeve PERFECTION!  It runs true to size and the colors are just as good in person.  It's absolutely darling and I love that it provides a little extra shoulder protection for long days in the sun.

Teacher Tuesday - Simple and Compound Interest


Today is kind of a "niche" post but I always get asked for more teacher content so here we go!  I teach simple and compound interest to my 7th grade classes and spend day 1 teaching simple interest, talking ab out how interest "works both ways" (as in something you can earn but also how it's something you can have to pay on a loan) and we go into credit REALLY briefly.

Weekend Top 10

Happy Monday, friends!  Kicking off Monday with a Top Ten from the weekend.  Here we go...

1 - This is a pic of a mom who just dropped her kid off for his first day at his first job.  She's wondering how on EARTH this has happened and also wondering if anyone has ever cleaned the mirror of the soccer complex bathroom ;)

Friday Favorites

 This week we said goodbye to one of our very FAVORITE people - Dave's granny, Myrtle.  She was LOVELY and always excited to see you and just genuinely joyful.  She would have been 101 in April and I'm so grateful that my kids go to experience her for so many years.

Taco Pie

Taco pie has been a staple in our house for YEARS but long ogne are the days where I could make it using a pound of meat and serve everyone for two meals and still have leftovers for lunch one day.  Nowadays I scale it way up and thought I'd share for any of y'all with kids who eat A LOT!

Amazon Lately

If I had to pick a theme for this months Amazon purchases it would for sure be camping ;). There are some other fun finds in here but if you're planning on camping any time soon this is the post for you!

First up is this self-inflating mattress.  I ordered the double size for myself last year and loved it so much I ordered this one for Luke.  My kids have used the double one CONSTANTLY throughout the year for sleepovers and movie nights and stuff and figured that this would be a great addition for having extra kids needing a spot to sleep.

Happy Friday, friends!  This week has been our Spring Break and I'm not sure I've ever needed a break more than I did this week!  We had nothing on our agenda and had a great mix of family time, rest time, friend time and FUN!

Monday morning we took advantage of some PERFECT weather and headed to the Dallas Zoo...

Spring Gift Guide: Boys

 Happy Thursday, friends!!! Today I'm sharing a few gift ideas for Spring birthdays, Easter baskets, etc.  My boys are a bit older now (and harder to shop for) so I'm hoping y'all find these ideas helpful and then next week I'll share ideas for younger kids as well as girls!

First up is my go-to Spring gift...  this set of playground balls.  My kids LOVE THESE!!!  They're perfect for kickball, dodgeball, all the trampoline games and everything in between.  They last forever and are fun for a wide variety of ages.
