Friday Favorites

Friday is here and it's looking to be another busy weekend for our crew.

I'm headed out of town this morning to watch Jesse's first track meet.  I'm excited to watch him compete but also because this is a first for me.  I was never in track as a kid and none of my kids have been in track.  There will be 15 other schools at this meet, which I think sounds crazy, and I'm just praying the sun comes out and the rain goes away.

On Saturday we'll head out of town for the rest of the weekend to watch Jesse and Emma play in their basketball tournaments.  They each have a 2 day tournament, and the first game starts at 7:00 am, which means we will have to leave the house no later than 5:30... yikes!

Okay, so to kick off my favorites this week...


 My sister and her family came back to visit this last weekend, and I got in some much needed baby time.  Two of my favorite's in one picture... a game of cards and a baby in my lap. #bliss


I recently finished Treasured Grace and I really liked it.  It's not always easy to find a book that I'll like, so when I do, it's a favorite.  You can see my review here.


I have a couple pairs of converse, but I decided I needed a white pair, and I'm so glad I splurged on these.  They are the perfect piece for transitioning into Spring.

Anyone else struggle with what to wear when the weather is so weird?  It's hard getting rid of boots and coats, when it's still in the upper 30's some days, but I'm just so ready to hide all of my winter clothes.


I shared this picture on Instagram, but it's worth sharing here as well.  My nephew got his picture taken with me when I went to Prom a couple many years ago.  Well, a couple weeks ago, he went to Prom and it was my turn to get a picture taken with him.  How could we not recreate this picture... except there is no way that I could hold him on my hip anymore.  ;)  He may think his aunt is old and uncool, but I couldn't love him more, even if he were my own.


And a little humor to start off your weekend...

Tell me this is you as well?  It's ridiculous!  ;)

Having plans sounds like a good idea until you have to put on clothes and leave your house.:
Pretty much.  ;)

Okay, that's it for this week.

To keep up with us this weekend, be sure and follow me on Instagram.

I've liked up with Andrea, Erika & Narci.
Christina, April & Natasha with Five On Friday.

Have the best weekend you guys!



  1. Track meets are soooo much fun! My husband and I were both in track and field, so we always love going to our students' meets. And yes, my Pinterest house boards are just dreams, too! Have a great weekend!

  2. I have nephews like that too - they used to be tiny and now they're way bigger than me! Have a great weekend!

  3. I am in love with my white converse. They are the perfect shoe to transition into spring. I hear you on the winter clothes/weather. I feel like I have worn the same things FOREVER now. I am in a rut big time with my clothes. I hope you have a great time at the track meet. Happy Friday!

    1. The white converse are so fun! I think I'm going to go through my closet this week and hide all of my winter clothes, and bring everything else up front. Hopefully that will help me. :) I hope you guys enjoyed your weekend.

  4. So I bought some Converse just like what you have posted! I think they are just the cutest, and couldn't wait to wear them. However, they are SO uncomfortable! I have wide feet, and they make my toes numb. :( Hopefully, I will get used to them.

  5. Happy Friday! Enjoy the track meet and tournaments. I hope the weather works out for you. We're getting rain too but I think Sunday it should be nicer. I just picked up those converse yesterday! Great minds think alike :) Beautifully Candid

  6. I love that picture recreation!:) I hope the weather cooperates for you at the track meet!!

  7. I just told my husband this week that I shop online kinda like in stores. I load my cart and then leave it there (I don't actually do that in stores, but I do weed it out on the way to the register). I love holding a sweet baby❤️ and I couldn't agree more with the last meme or whatever you want to call it. I like to get dressed once a day and if I have to change clothes to go out, I'm just too lazy. #thestruggleisreal Enjoy all your sporting events. Man, I sure don't miss those early morning sports call times. 😜

  8. Wow you are one busy Mama!! I have those same white converse and LOVE them! Happy weekend!

  9. I actually tried that exact pair of Converse on a couple of weeks ago. They are just so flat and I was afraid I would not wear them because of that. But, I bet they are cute as can be on you. Happy weekend!

  10. Have a fun weekend. I am glad the sun came out for you. I love a good baby snuggle and game of cards too and that last meme made me laugh because I pulled nothing out for dinner but that meant I had a choice to get dressed to go out or find something to cook! I chose get dressed ;) xoxo ERIN

  11. I'm with you - I feel like I have no idea what to wear between now and mid-May! I might need some Converse! :) Hope you had a great weekend!
