Friday Favorites!!

Friday, February 17, 2017

Hi friends!! 
Happy Friday!!

How was your week??
It was FULL and FUN week for us...we had a lot of fun celebrating Valentine's Day, Marshall had a checkup at the doctor, I have been able to make it to the gym a couple of times AND I have somewhat stayed on top of the laundry. HA! Except- currently, as I type this- there is a load in the dryer that needs to be folded and put away and another over flowing pile of dirty clothes upstairs. Oh well...I was caught up for like a day. HA!

Here's some of my FAVORITES from this past week!

I made treats for all 3 of my girls' classes for Valentine's Day (there was a sugar cookie explosion at our house last weekend! HA!) and I also got to volunteer in my daughter Cora's class for her party!! My friend was able to watch James and Marshall came with me. Cora was beside herself to have mommy AND Marshall come to her classroom! We had so much fun and I have decided that kindergarteners are my FAVORITES :)

On Wednesday, I shared a recipe for the BEST apple crumb pie! It is my husband's FAVORITE! It is super simple to make- it just takes a little bit of time...but I promise- no skill is required!! HA! You can check out the post HERE! I made this pie for Aaron's Valentine's dessert and he was one happy guy. He brought the leftovers to work yesterday and he said it was demolished in about 10 minutes flat! :)
Aaron and I don't really get each other anything on Valentine's's not a "big" holiday for us. With that being said, we definitely always make sure to write each other a love note- which is my FAVORITE! For Valentine's Day this year, he not only wrote me a love note- but got me these gorgeous hot pink roses!! They are SO pretty and cheerful! He also got each of our girls 2 roses and had them in a little vase at their spot at the kitchen table for when they woke up on Valentine's Day morning!! So sweet and I see it being a "tradition" he does for them every year!! I love the idea of him still sending his girls roses once they are all grown up!! :) P.S. He got the roses from Aldi!!! They have AWESOME flowers for SO cheap!!
We are headed to visit my parents this weekend and are SO excited. We were originally supposed to go visit them in January- but an ice storm cancelled our plans. This weekend the weather is supposed to be SUNNY and close to 70 degrees. I am seriously beside myself with happiness!! We plan on playing outside the whole time we are visiting! 
I am SO looking forward to some family time, fresh air and warm sunshine! Three of my all time FAVORITES for sure!
I am skipping #5 today because my kiddos are home this morning- they have a 2 hour delayed start to school today and I want to take advantage of the extra time i have this morning to get organized and ready for our day!

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