Friday Favorites!!

Friday, July 10, 2015

Friday is here! Did this week fly by or what?! Actually- it felt a little slow at our has been raaaiinnniinngg so much- and being cooped up in the house has definitely brought the level of crazy up a couple of notches- HA!
Despite the yuck weather, we had an awesome week...always so much to be thankful for- even in the midst of storms- literally and figuratively.

Here are some of my FAVORITES from this past week!

My oldest brother lives in San Diego and was on an epic road trip from California to the East Coast last week. He was able to make a pit stop at our house for lunch and we were so HAPPY to see him!! The last time we saw him was when I was 5 months pregnant with James- so it was a lot of fun for him meet James and love on the girls. Time with my oldest brother is so precious-- it was definitely a FAVORITE part of my week to give him a great big hug!!
I popped into Old Navy this week to see what they had on sale and walked out with these two tank tops.  I have been needing new "layering" tanks to go under my workout tank tops- the ones I am currently wearing are soo thin and worn out!  Being that I am going to wear these when I work out, I really didn't want to spend a bunch of money on them.  How about $3 each?!? I saw the price tag and was SO excited! Scoring a bargain is definitely a FAVORITE of mine!!  These tanks are awesome- they are stretchy, light weight and perfect for layering.  They have cute criss cross straps that actually work really well with workout tanks and sports bras.  If you are at Old Navy, check these tanks out!! :)
Speaking of working out, one of my friends and I went on a power walk last night at 8 pm- and it was awesome. It was still super light out and we just walked and talked and walked and talked some more!! Getting exercise AND having some time with a good friend?!? Hands down, a FAVORITE for me!  We are looking forward to (hopefully- as long as our schedules align) walking weekly!!  
My FAVORITE day of this week was my son's first birthday!! Instead of having a big party, my husband took the day off of work and we just had a super fun family day! The night before James' birthday, we went to a local waterpark and had a picnic dinner there!  On the morning of his birthday, we got donuts for the kids and then for lunch, we went to Chuy's-YUM.  We had 2 of our friends over for his birthday dinner and it was hysterical to watch James eat his cake! He was so skeptical! He finally dove in and took two bites- but then chucked the rest of it on the floor :)  
It was the perfect day celebrating our precious baby boy!!
We are headed out later today on a little road trip! One of my dearest friend's family rents a huge lake house for one week during the summer.  The house happens to only be 1 1/2 hours away from where we live!  She invited us to come hang out and we, of course, said "YES!"  There will be lots of kids there for my kids to play with, the house has a pool and the weather is supposed to be gorgeous- its going to be such a blast!  Once we get home from the lake house, the kids and I are headed out on another little road trip to my parents' house!  We will be staying with them for most of next week!  I love going on fun adventures- SO fun we have two little trips happening one right after the other!
I hope you had a wonderful week!!
Do you have anything fun and exciting planned for the weekend?? Or just lots of relaxing?
Either way- I hope you get to spend it with people you love, doing things that make you happy!!
