Friday Favorites!

Friday, February 15, 2019

Hi friends!!

Happy Friday!! 
PHEW. It's been a week! HA! 
James ended up not having anything more than a virus- which I am SO thankful for- but I have been picking him up early from school so he can rest more at home. My babysitter has been out of town- and she is the one who picks up Marshall from school for me a couple of days a week while I am working- so I have had to change up my schedule a bit AND the kiddos randomly got out of school at 11:30 yesterday because of something taking place at our church. Combine that with several appointments and a crazy on call day for Aaron-- and I kind of feel like I have been on a hamster wheel...running my little legs (even though my legs are NOT little-HA!) as fast as they can go!


I've got some major random FAVORITES to share with you today!!

First up- this fun little organizer bar we put up in our hallway closet!!
Originally- we just had our broom and mop just stacked up against the wall. I picked up this organizer bar off of Amazon and now everything is put away!
I's the little things! HA!
Do you think I am the LAMEST person ever for sharing a picture of my hallway closet as one of my Friday Favorites?!? HA! I just love that everything is off the ground and it's just a better use of a small space! You can find the organizer HERE!
I picked up this scent of wax cubes at Walmart last week and I have to tell you- they smell LOVELY! 
Yes. Floral Candy. Kind of hard to imagine the combination of both of those together...but I love it! It's light, slightly fragrant...but still has a very fresh smell to it! 
Friends. Walmart's girls' section is AMAZING right now!!!
They have the CUTEST tops that totally look like something from Crew Cuts. Not sure if you can see in the pictures...but that is embroidery on the sleeves and it's just SO cute!
Also- totally obsessed with the t-shirts with the eyelet ruffle detail on the sleeve and at the hem!
Since we are North Carolina...I think we might have some of the spring stuff out a little earlier than maybe up if you don't see any of these shirts in your Walmart store now- just keep an eye out for them!
I read this and it made me laugh out loud! 
My friend Laura- who doesn't blog- even though she should- totally have this relationship. There are moments when we are sending DMs to each other over IG- and I have 2 IG accounts- so a lot of the time- it's back and forth on both accounts while we are texting each other. I can also call her with the most RANDOM question/topic and before you know it we've been on the phone for an hour. We met when we were living in Cleveland and we have remained great friends since then! 
I don't have a ton of "local" friends...but I do have a handful of friends I have made over the past 10 years when we were moving around a lot- and I am SO thankful we've made the effort to keep in touch and that we can text each other 50 times in a row and it's totally normal :)
One of my best blogging buddies, Johannah, did it again and designed the most precious graphic for something my friend Emily (@threeboysandagirlblog) and I are doing for Owen, who writes over at the blog, Davis Duo (and you can find her on instagram @mrsordavis).

If you don't already know from social media, Owen had twin girls, Lucy and Molly, at 24 weeks old and they have been little warrior angels since the day they were born! Owen and her husband have been spending every minute they can at the NICU with them while also taking care of their precious 2 year old Vivi. They are such a faith-filled, amazing family who is demonstrating so much grace and strength in such a HARD time. Lucy and Molly have already had to fight off several infections and little Lucy just had surgery on her tiny hip yesterday at Duke Medical Center. Owen and her family live right here in Greenville, so along with the help of her sister and Emily (who lives in a nearby town), we are doing a cinnamon roll fundraiser to help them with any and all costs that come up during a time such as this.

If you feel so inclined- even if it's just giving up your Starbucks for the day and donating $5- it can make a big impact! Here is the link to the paypal account that has been set up in support of the Davis family- ALL proceeds will go directly to them!

Please be praying for Lucy and Molly (and Owen, Garrett and Vivi) as they have a long journey ahead of them. 
And THANK YOU Johannah for ALWAYS creating me the most beautiful graphics!! 
And that's all I have for today!!

I have to work for a little bit this morning, I need to sneak in a workout, return a few things, get to the store...and somehow fit this all before I have to pick up my hooligans from school this afternoon! HA!
We've got a family Valentine's dance at our church tonight and the girls keep asking me if I am REALLY going to dance. Yes. I am. Yes they will probably be mortified.
I used to have some it's just more like awkward, Elaine from Seinfeld type dancing that I do. HA!

Hope you have a FABULOUS Friday and a WONDERFUL weekend!

Hello Monday!

Monday, February 11, 2019

Hi friends!! Happy Monday!!

I'm back!! YAY!

So- the good news is: Charlotte is healthy and back at school. Not so great news- James is dealing with a yucky cold/respiratory junk- so I have to take him to the doctor this morning! I am just praying it is an ear infection or just a virus. PLEASE. NO.MORE.FLU!!

Despite James being under the weather this past weekend...we still managed to have a really good weekend and I finally feel like I am (fairly) caught up on life!

I am not a huge decorator for holidays...but I do like adding seasonal touches here and there...I got silvery pink throw pillows and two SUPER soft velvet "love" pillows for Valentine's Day/February.
I am loving the touch of pink and those gray "love" pillows are insanely soft and so comfy!!!
Does anyone else have a throw pillow obsession like me?? I was texting my friend Whitney, telling her that our guest bedroom closet has pretty much been taken over by my expansive collection of throw pillows! HA!
Just another little touch of Valentine's Day...I picked up this cute sign at Michael's!
Also- here's our menu plan for the week in case you need some inspiration!! I start our meal plan on Saturday and go through Friday! This menu is the kid version....Just a FYI: I always list both the kid AND adult menu plans on my @fullhandsfullheart_fit4life account!
Saturday afternoon, the girls got out all of their Valetines and got to work putting them all together for their friends! I LOVE the kits from the Dollar Spot at Target- and I ALWAYS get them as soon as they put them out- which is early January- because they sell out so quickly! 
And not only did they get all of their Valentines done...they did their brothers' Valentines for me!! 
I was SO excited they did that!! Talk about helping mommy out!!
And they had a blast doing it! 
Raising young ladies is NOT for the faint of heart...but gosh- they are good little helpers and I am so thankful for them!
Sunday was a nice and easy day of church in the morning, hanging out while Marshall napped and then we made a run to Target and then hit the park before coming home for dinner!
I made these two desserts for our Sunday night treat! They are both from Aldi and they are good! We all agreed...not as great as homemade...but definitely yummy and perfect for a quick treat if you don't want to go all out and make homemade treats! You can find them in the baking aisle at Aldi!
And now we're back to Monday!!
What do you have going on this week?

We're pretty packed with work, school, some activities in the evening and then Valentine's Day on Thursday and our school's Valentine's Dance on Friday! Lots of fun things this week!

Sure hope ya'll had a great weekend and here's to having the BEST Monday!

Be Back Soon!!!

Monday, February 4, 2019

Hi Friends!! Happy Monday!

PHEW. The past 7 days have been a smidge crazy over at Casa Leshikar.

Charlotte got a pretty severe case of the flu, I got sick (thankfully not the flu!!) for a few days and Aaron was out of town for 5 of those days.

I missed a whole week of work and just got behind on life in general.

Just wanted to pop in and say "HI" and promise that I will be back, all fresh, shiny and new next Monday. I have lots of things to chat about and a few, EASY yummy recipes to share. 

I sure hope ya'll had a great weekend....and if you were in the trenches like me...

I am always here to be a support, an encourager and a prayer warrior for any of you- please just email me or DM me on Instagram! I would be honored to pray for your intentions.

Much love to all of you and I will "talk" to you SOON!
