Hello and Happy Friday. How was your week? Ours had some ups and some downs, and I think we are all looking forward to the weekend…that’s for sure.
As always, I’m linking up with Andrea and Erika for this week’s Friday Favorites.
Here are some favorites from the week:
The kids on Easter is a favorite. The tree was blooming so beautifully and the sun was shining. These two really are growing up on me!
The kids had two track meets this week (and one more tonight), and I’m having the best time watching them do this together. It’s super sweet that they will have these memories!
We had so much fun at Keeneland on Saturday. It was just so nice to catch up with some great friends and hang out.
I’m so thankful that the egg dyeing tradition has continued. I’m also very thankful that they can do most of it on their own 🙂 Kind of like pumpkin carving…I’m happy to just sit back and relax!
Well, what does one do when they have a dozen hard boiled eggs and is the only one who eats them?! They make a week’s worth of chef’s salads!
I packed them in my handy dandy salad lunch container that my mom got me.…
Favorite Clothing Item:
I have a darker denim jacket that I’ve had for a few years. When I saw this distressed one that was on sale (for $15) at Old Navy, I jumped on it. It doesn’t seem to be on sale now, but it’s perfect for the days when I need an extra layer but don’t want to wear my heavy winter coat.
I already have this cardigan in “cadet gray”…
…but I purchased it again in this hot pink color. It’s the perfect cardigan for spring. This was my outfit on Wednesday and so many people complimented me on the color. 💓
Favorite Kid Quote:
Well, I don’t have a kid quote this week…but Hadley’s school chorus had a performance on Wednesday, and I loved hearing the two songs they’d been working on.
Favorite Mom Meme:
The number of times that I come home to find that they’ve left lights on for hours are too many to count.
I picked up these tulips from Trader Joe’s, and they were showing off in the morning sunlight.
Besides two track meets, Hayden has also had two baseball games. He did an awesome job pitching on Tuesday night.
At Wednesday’s meet, the coaches had the kids run different events. Both of my kids ran the 100m dash which was fun to watch. They’ll admit they are more distance (Hayden) and mid-distance (Hadley) runners, but I love seeing them push themselves and try something new.
Who do you think ran the 100 m race quicker?
By the fourth track meet of the season, I finally figured out exactly what I needed to pack for the two to three hour meet…including my Kindle.
Bonus Fave: Flashback Friday:
Do you ever see a photo from the past that you clearly remember taking? This is one of them from me. During a very difficult season of life in 2013, I remember asking the kids to sit on the porch and smile, snapping the photo, and counting my blessings. #pinchycheekcute
This week I blogged about a little bit of everything. I recapped the weekend and Easter on Monday, wrote about Keeneland (and what Travis does for a living) on Tuesday, and then shared favorite spring shoes and sandals yesterday.
What are your weekend plans? We have a track meet, baseball practice, church and a few other things on tap. See you back here Monday.
Thanks so much for reading.
