Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!!  Linking up with AndreaErica, and Narci and sharing some of my favs from this week.  

Fourth of July is one of my favorites!  We always have a celebration with family involving fireworks, food, and fun.  Last year, we teamed up for some friendly competition.  I've been researching on Pinterest for some new games this year.  I'm super excited.  It's going to be a blast.    

We are already starting on #1 (dress appropriately).  My favorite girl in some red, white, and blue.

One of my favorite things to do is plan our vacations.  I've been watching airfare prices.  Sadly, they just keep going up.  I bit the bullet and bought our tickets.  It feels good to get one more thing out of the way.  Up next is getting the kids' passports.  

We are starting to see the fruits of hubby's labor.  Fresh eggs are one of my favs.  I can't wait for the corn to come in.  

Finally being able to enjoy the pool this week has been one of my favorites.  Even though I think I may be waterlogged, I'm looking forward to our water park visit on Friday.  

Happy Friday!!

Weekend Recap

Friday morning we went to the gym.  Bryson was excited to get his fitness on.

After the gym, we met up with my BFF and her kiddos.  We watched Inside Out.  It was a little above Hallie's head and she got restless toward the end. 

After the movie, we went next door to the Italian ice cream store.  My friend made a comment about how Bryson is growing up...working out and ordering cappuccino ice cream.  How true and sad!  My baby boy is growing up :(

That evening I had a girls night out with another friend, but not before going to Walmart so Bryson could buy a new video game with his own money. 

Saturday morning the kids went on a little trip with my parents, stepsister, and her kids to a museum a few hours away.  I used that free time to clean house and run

Sunday morning Hallie went to wake Bryson up.  She said, "Bryson wake up.  Happy Father's Day."  Silly girl.  I don't always have time to coordinate their Sunday outfits, but I love it when I do!!

We ate at a little sandwich shop after church.  Hallie enjoyed the extra whip cream on my piece of pie. 

Sunday evening we took hubby, my step dad, and neighbor (adopted granddad) out to eat at Red Lobster.  I hate seafood, but it's hubby's favorite and it was his day.  I told Bryson we had to take one for the team.  He was confused about that saying, but he's good now after I explained. 

One the way home, we stopped by Walmart for a few things.  We sent the hubby in, and we had a dance party in the truck.  Fun times!

This weekend was jammed packed with friends and family.  I wouldn't have it any other way.  My heart is full!!

Happy Friday!!  Linking up with AndreaErica, and Narci and sharing some of my favs from this week.  

This sign at Cracker Barrel cracked me up.  This used to be my and my best friend's motto.  But now I'm wiser and smarter and care more about skin cancer.  Oh to be young and carefree.   

I was sent a sneak peak from Friday's photoshoot.  I'm in love!!  I can't wait to see all of them.  I have a feeling I'll have a hard time deciding which ones to get printed to hang.  

I sent hubby to church by himself on Wednesday night so we could stay home and work on a Father's Day present.  It's not exactly the best picture.  We had to take the picture in the garage due to all the rain this week.  The garage floor has some stains, and the lighting is horrible.  I'm hoping to clean the picture up in an editing program.  Either way, I'm sure the hubby is going to love it!  Oh, and as soon as hubby got home, Hallie started rambling about how mommy made us astronaut hats.  Thank goodness he still has no clue.  

I LOVE salted caramel.  I picked up some weight watchers salted brownie bliss a couple of weeks ago while out of town.  These are so good.  The only negative is the size.  They need to be bigger, but then they wouldn't be just 90 calories.  I really hope I can find some in the local stores.  I only have one left :(  

A friend posted a link on Facebook to this blog post.  If you love taking pictures of your kids with your phone, it's a must read!  My favorite quote from the article...."I wasn’t missing out; I was memorializing it. I wasn’t lost behind the lens; I was living through it too. I was there, and I was present. I just didn’t want to forget. Ever. "

Happy Friday!  Hope everyone has a great weekend.  

Weekend Recap

Friday night, the girl and I headed for a little road trip to get pictures done.  We drove about an hour and half.  She did so good with the little trip.  She is usually not a good traveler.  I was worried since the Hubby wasn't going, but she did awesome!! 

I took a few pictures with my phone.  I just couldn't help myself.  Was that really rude?  I made sure not to get in the photographer's way.  

And about 30 minutes before we got home, she finally passed out.  That in itself is a miracle.  This girl fights sleeps.  I can count on one hand how many times she has fallen asleep in the car since she's been born. 

Since she did so good, I told her we would go to Toys R Us on Saturday to get a toy.  She roamed the store looking for the perfect toy.  She finally decided on a My Little Pony play-doh set.  

Sunday after church, we ate at Cracker Barrel.  She's in heaven when we go.  I have to admit, they do have some cool stuff. 

The hubby picked up a few candy bars.  He insisted that I try the pigs n' taters bar.  He went on and on about how it's so good and I will love it.  So, I took a bite.  I hated it.  I thought he was playing a joke on me.  But no, he really thinks they're good.  I prefer my chocolate, bacon, and potato chips separated.

It was a great weekend, and sister had a lot of one on one time.  We are all getting anxious for Bubba to get home soon.
