Hello and Happy Friday! We’ve had a pretty good week around here, and the best part is that it’s been feeling like spring.
I’m breaking the week down and sharing some favorites from each day:
For the first time in forever, we didn’t have to set an alarm on Saturday morning!
Another fave was trying out The Press. I enjoyed my smoothie, and Hadley loved her acai bowl.
The best part about Sunday was watching American Idol. It’s definitely a family fave.
Speaking of family faves, I think Shay’s recipe for Frito Pie was delish. It was the perfect Monday meal after a long day. The whole fam enjoyed it.
Hayden had a mid-day doctor’s appointment which meant that he missed lunch. We hit up Freddy’s before heading back to school. A weekday lunch with Boo is always a fave.
Wednesday morning was Hadley’s turn for an appointment. We had a few minutes to spare before her school started, so we stopped at Chick-fil-A. A weekday breakfast out with Sis is, of course, a fave.
Also, the weather was beautiful, and Trav grilled steaks for dinner. We were all excited about that.
Thursday was another day of beautiful weather, and it was so nice to come home and see the sun shining through our new shutters.
When we moved in over seven years ago, we got shutters on our family room and office windows and white faux wood blinds on the bedroom windows. Through the years, the kids pulled the strings off their blinds and a few slats were bent, etc. So, we ordered shutters for the five bedroom windows back in late November. They were installed Wednesday night, so I loved seeing the daylight on Thursday afternoon.
Favorite Clothing Item:
…and Hayden’s loving his new kicks. He’s been a big Oregon fan for years (big track school!), and Travis ordered him these shoes. He was in need of a new pair before track season begins next week. (He’ll train in his old shoes and these are now his school shoes)
Favorite Kid Quote:
Hayden was on a roll this week. After his doctor’s appointment, we stopped at home to pick up his basketball bag. He saw our neighbor who was working in his yard. Hayden said, “Imagine all the things I could do if I was retired. Instead, I have to go to school.”
Then, we were driving by the kids’ elementary school, and I commented on the car line. He said the elementary years were the “OG years.” haha
Favorite Mom Meme:
With the exception of last weekend, this meme is very true.
Bonus Fave: Flashback Friday
I always love this 2014 memory. We’d gone to a UK women’s basketball game. The kids stood in front of the Wildcats sign, and I told Hadley to take a few steps to her right! She was definitely the “WILD”one back then!
This week, I shared about the weekend, my February Amazon finds, and the two books I read this month.
What are your weekend plans? This weekend includes all the things: basketball, baseball, and dance! (Thankfully, none of them start before noon!)
See you back here on Monday! I hope you have a great weekend.
