5 on Friday- Cowboy Boots and Sunshine!

Friday, March 13, 2015

Wow! It is Friday already?!?  This week went by pretty fast for us...definitely not complaining that the weekend is here!! We don't have any big plans...I am just looking forward to spending time with my crew!

I am linking up again with DarciApril and Natasha for Five on Friday!

I am also linking up with Andrea and Erika for their Friday Favorites Link Up!

A couple weeks ago, my parents came into town for a quick visit.  My mom always likes to check out Stein Mart since she doesn't have one in her town.  We were meandering through the shoe department and I found the CUTEST pair of cowboys boots!!  And they were on clearance!  And my mom had another 20% off coupon!  I have always wanted a pair of cowboy boots...but never wanted to spend the money on them.  I was so excited to find some that didn't break the bank and that were super cute!  I wore them to church this past Sunday and they are sooo comfortable! Since it might be hit or miss if these can be found at a Stein Mart- you can get them here on Amazon! Just FYI- these aren't real leather boots- but they do not look cheap at all! :) And did I mention how comfortable they are?!?

Loving the two mornings a week where I have 3 of my 4 kiddos at home with me!  My 2nd oldest daughter goes to preschool 3 mornings a week...which means we are making the 40 minute round trip to school 3 times a day.  On Thursday's and Friday's we only have to take my oldest daughter to school in the morning and pick her up in the afternoon.  I love not having to rush off and pick up Cora from preschool and my youngest daughter loves having her sister home so she has a playmate!  They have lots of fun and are really good at making a huge mess of their playroom! HA!

Majorly LOVING the Spring like weather that has been happening in our neck of the woods!!  This Sunday is supposed to be SO nice and we have plans to give my van and my husband's car a really good wash.  My girls LOVE to help wash our cars so it should be a fun afternoon family activity!

Due to the time change and the warmer weather I have been able to get several runs in this week!  This makes me SO HAPPY!  My husband is so great about getting home from work as soon as he can so I can get out for 30 minutes of fresh air and what I like to call "free therapy."  

My oldest daughter was presented a "BIG R" Award at school this past week.  She was called down to the Principal's office and presented with a certificate and a ribbon.  She was SO excited to show us her "golden and blue" ribbon!  Her teacher said she won the award because she is a leader in her classroom and is very helpful.  Talk about making us proud!  I was SO worried about sending her to kindergarten (not about her- about how I would do without her at home:) and it has been such a wonderful experience!  She LOVES school and is thriving.  It is pretty amazing to watch your child SOAR!  So thankful for her wonderful school and for HER!

How has your week been? Any fun plans for the weekend??
I hope you have a WONDERFUL day!
