Friday Favorites

Today is the HAPPIEST Friday of all the Fridays because it's the first Friday of SUMMER!!!  I have a staff luncheon today and then I'm D.O.N.E.  I even took a nap yesterday afternoon to celebrate :) 

I'm excited to share some of my FAVORITES from the week and if you have FAVORITES to share you should join me, Erika and Narci by grabbing our graphic and linking up with us below.

First up is this picture from Tuesday afternoon.  It was field day for the boys and Griffin's last full day and when they got home they were DONE.  Luke unbuckled and then went BACK to sleep :)  I feel like this picture summed up all my last feel emotions...

Next up is  this romper - I talked about my new love of all things STEM last week and when this romper popped up on the Nordstrom site I snagged it.  It is PRECIOUS but it does run large (G is in a 4), but at under $30 it's a total summer must-have. 

You can tell when Griffin is really feeling an outfit becuase she pulls out her "Egypt" pose :)

It's kind of hard to see, but the back is just as cute as the front and the whole thing is ridiculously comfy and soft. 

Another FAVORITE from the week was donating my hair!  I talked about this a bit on Instagram so I won't get too mushy about it here - but donating hair is something near and dear to my heart.  I donate my hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths - an organization that provides wigs for FREE to women going through cancer treatment and I SO SO SO SO encourage you to consider being a part of it.  It's an awesome experience and it's so special to know that your donation is going to be part of something to help a woman fighting cancer.  

And you end up with a short and sassy new do :) 

Another FAVORITE was the third grade end-of-the year party for kids and their families.  It was a bit crazy but so much fun!

And one of our FAVORITE girls EVER graduates TODAY!!! We adore McKinley and are so sad to see her go!

I mean - I turned around at her graduation party and she was sitting having a sweet little talk with G!  Love her!

Linen is one of my very FAVORITE things to wear - especially in the summer - and  this cute dress is all linen and on sale!  It has a sweet little tie in the back and will be great all summer long.

Nordstrom's half-yearly sale is going on right now and I scooped up  this cute caddy that I have plans to stock with markers, colored pencils and crayons to leave out on the table this summer.  My kids are ALWAYS asking to craft and I think having supplies easily accessible (and easy to clean up!) will be a FAVORITE...

I also stumbled upon  this gorgeous mercury glass piece that I have total visions of filled with sunflowers or peonies this summer and then pumpkins and Christmas balls later in the year.

Last but not least - these two cuties had their last day of school yesterday and looking back at their first day of school pictures and seeing how much they've grown and changed in just 9 months was a FAVORITE this week as well...

They've both had fantastic years and I really couldn't ask for more than that!

Mason earned Headmaster's Honor Roll along with a cooperation character award...

... we love Mrs. McKeller!!!

Luke also earned Headmaster's Honor Roll and a character award of hospitality (and seriously... this was the best out of three pics - hahaha).

And he also won first place for their accelerated reader competition!  SO PROUD!!!

It was a great week but we're so glad it's over!  We don't really have much on our agendas this weekend which is JUST what we need!  Wishing y'all the best weekend!
