Friday Favorites!

Friday, May 13, 2016

Hi!! Happy Friday!
How was your week??
I sure hope it was a good one!

We had a fun, busy week and are so excited today- because it is my youngest daughter's birthday! We are celebrating with a family party at Build-A-Bear, a pizza and movie picnic and cupcakes and ice cream in the back yard. It's going to be a great day!

It's Friday- so time to share some of my FAVORITES from this past week!

My girls have the SWEETEST teachers. Cora came home earlier this week with this adorable handmade card that her teachers made and all of her classmates had signed. 
AND they sent home the CUTEST plaid romper for Marshall. I totally squealed when I opened the box! A collared, brightly colored plaid romper??? LOVE! It's absolutely my FAVORITE outfit he has in his closet!! Can't wait to see my precious boy wearing it this summer!

Sunshine, walks and collecting rocks :) Yesterday Celine, James, Marshall and I went for a walk and it was just glorious. The sun was shining, it wasn't too hot and nobody was crying- ha! Celine picked me a bouquet of dandelions and James came home with about 10 rocks.
It was such a simple little walk- but one of my FAVORITE moments from this past week! And I couldn't get James to look at the camera for a picture- but I did snap a shot of his curls!! Can you believe how wild and curly his hair is?? And the color of it is SO pretty. Basically my 22 month old son has wwaaaayyy better hair than me! Ha!
I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I picked up a super cheap nail polish at Walmart because my girls really loved the color...well I am so happy to report that it is AWESOME!  I have been painting my nails with it and my beloved Seche Vite top coat and it has been lasting for up to a week on my nails with NO chips! You can see in the picture I took- it is starting to look a little yucky around my cuticles- but this is after having it on my nails for at least 5 days! Definitely my new FAVORITE polish- at only $1.98!! If you are at Walmart, Target or any drug store- be on the look out for LA Colors "Color Last" nail polish!!
Do you have FAVORITE little spots in your house?
I do :) And my kitchen sink window is one of them!
I put all the little handmade goodies the girls have made me on the windowsill and always have a fresh flower in my little flower vase (that my mom gave me).
And what I love the most is while I am stuck standing at the sink doing dishes, I can see all of my crazy kids running around the backyard and jumping on the trampoline and it just makes me HAPPY! :)

Sooo...I am kind of cheating today...because I don't have a #5 :)
BUT-my kids just got up EXTRA early because they are so excited about Celine's birthday- so I gotta GO :) 
4 kids at 6 am (Marshall is being a good boy and sleeing:)- already hyped up about cupcakes and ice cream (that we aren't having for another 12 hours- HA!) is quite a combination!!

Hope you have the BEST Friday and a WONDERFUL weekend!
