Friday Favorites!

Friday, February 10, 2017

Hi friends!! Happy Friday!!

Does anyone else feel like this week went by really fast??
No complaints here...I LOVE when the weekend arrives! ;)

Here's a few FAVORITES of mine from this past week!!

Family walks. I just love them! This past Sunday we went on a walk after the boys had woken up from their afternoon nap and it was just SO nice to get some fresh air! It was cold out- but the sun was shining and it was just what we needed after a weird, rainy first part of our weekend!
My favorite store is hitting it out of the park- AGAIN. Look at these beautiful Valentine's cards!!! Friends- they are at ALDI and they are $1!!! They are like the cards you would see at a boutique stationary store!! 
 I picked one up for my hubby...and now I am thinking I should go back and get a couple more!! At $1 each- it wouldn't be a bad idea to stock up and tuck them away for next year!
Last week- I wrote a post asking all of you if I should cut my hair or not!!
You are all of my FAVORITES because you were SO encouraging and gave me the sweetest advice!
Well- I took in this inspiration picture to my hair stylist...
And this is what happened!!!
Insert wide-eyed emoji!! HA!

And here is the final product!!!
It is A LOT shorter than I was planning on going...but my stylist was amazing (it was my first time going to her) and she knew exactly what she was doing. 
I totally LOVE it and it's such a fun change!
Along with my getting my hair chopped off...I got some fresh highlights...LOVE THEM- and I am feeling like a new woman!
I read this quote earlier this week and it really resonated with me.
I don't know about you...but I sometimes feel REALLY small when it comes to my ability to help others and make a positive impact on this big ol' somewhat scary mess of a world.
These words encouraged me to focus on where I am at RIGHT NOW...and made me realize I can make an impact and shine God's light and love- no matter where I am or where I am going. Here's to giving it all we got...even when it's hard or when we feel like what we have to give is not enough!
I am off to swim laps this morning- it's my favorite workout day of the week (!!) and the girls are going to the Butterfly Ball at their school with their daddy tonight!
I am going to get a couple $4 1/2 dozen bundles of roses from Aldi and make them cute little bouquets!! They are going to love them!!

I hope you have the BEST day and a WONDERFUL weekend!!

    1. Thank you friend!! We have had many daddy events where we have had to have an "honorary" daddy step in too-- it's definitely not the same as daddy- but it's so nice to have a good support system who you can count on- isn't it?? Have a great day friend!

  2. Ah your hair is gorgeous!!! I look terrible with short hair but I'm always envious of those with it because its so much easier than long hair! Stopping over from the linkup - hope you have a great weekend! Stop by my blog if you're bored =0)
