Shout it from the rooftops...IT'S FRIDAY!!
Okay this is our first full week back to school since before Christmas Break. Crazy?!? - I know!
However, that makes me especially thankful that is it finally Friday and the weekend is peeking at me around the corner!
A full week back, and I realize just how crazy our schedule is. Boo!
Can I get another "snow storm" please?
Despite it being a full week of back to the grind, it was a week filled with tons of fun moments - and some that will make my favorite list forever!
As always linking up with some of our favorite bloggers for Friday Favorites...
This week Cute turned six. My baby's birthday will always be my favorite. Always. I can't believe how quickly six years has passed, and as each day passes I realize just how crazy in love I am with him.
When I wasn't showering him with a million birthday hugs and kisses - or crying big ugly sobs over that big meanie that is Father Time - we were celebrating!
Last weekend we had the fun laser tag/bowling Ninja Turtles party for him with a few of his friends, and this week we kept the party going.
Then Wednesday was his actual birthday. He had school, but we made sure to make the day as special as possible. I think his highlight was probably Mr. Cute and I smuggling "outside" lunch into him. Thank you to the maker of large tote bags for our cover, and huge shout out to Baby Cute for the temper tantrum diversion in the front office - you both made all of Cute's birthday lunch dreams come true.
(Side note: Maybe seven will be the year we return to taking photos where our tongues aren't out? Every. Single. Photo.)
Now we were only at the school briefly, but I felt that I should actually do my hair and put on pants with a button. I was super proud of myself because I also feel as though I wore an appropriate outfit...
24 Kindergarteners. One teacher.
BLESS. HER. HEART.
Cute has a super sweet class - and his teacher is amazing - but that is a whole lot of five and six year old to control.
So many teachers and fellow moms commented on the shirt while I was there. This is actually a Valentine's Day shirt from our friend Kathryn. She owns the cutest little online boutique, and I was so excited to wear this I couldn't wait. It is so soft and cozy, and she knows we are lovers of all things gold and shiny.
Plus, what southern girl doesn't love the saying "Bless Your Heart"?
And to put on those real clothes and do my hair, I have to shower. Showering is my favorite - as it should be for everybody.
This week showering was even more my favorite because I was able to test run some Beauty Counter products that our friend Kristen shared with us. Let me just say...ahh-mazing!
I've been wanting to try Beauty Counter products for awhile, and can't wait give everything a go. Do you use Beauty Counter products? Which ones are your favorite?
Allrighty, now that we've established that I bathed and chose not to walk around naked at least one day this week, I will move on to my next favorite..
Y'all. This drink. I was sitting in the waiting room at L.C.'s gymnastics gym, and was so thirsty. I had 40 minutes until my thirst would be quenched via anything at my house, so I made way to the drink machine for a water.
No water. But this kiwi strawberry goodness was in there. I gave it a try and was instantly in love.
And now thanks to the good people at Amazon and their prime shipping, I will be enjoying this beverage again somewhere around 3:30p.m.
I'm also intrigued by all the flavors available. I've never heard of this cane soda before, but I'll tell you now - I'm a fan!
Now that we are back to our full schedule, I've had small pockets of time at home where I can get a few projects done while B.C. naps, and the older Cutes are at school. I've been on an organizing frenzy! I've been taking that whole "consolidate" thing seriously, and it feels. so. good.
One of my favorite quick projects for the week was figuring out how to organize all of Cute's sports medals. Trophies are easy because I can just place them on the shelves, but the medals were starting to just pile up in a blob on the shelf.
I was excited to find this cute wall hanger. It is perfect, and has room to add more.
I also must have been a little more on my game than normal because I had the foresight to go ahead and order one for L.C.'s room too.
I love the "She Believed She Could, So She Did" hanger I found for hers, and love that I have a spot all ready to go for her medals after Spring sports are wrapped up.
Speaking of exercise, I've been putting my favorite yoga pants to actual use this week. Seriously, I've probably logged more workout hours this week more than I have in the last few months combined. It's not due to some new resolution. Or revelation. Or even the fact that swimsuit season is staring me down each time I partake in Fiesta Fridays with a yummy cheese dip margarita combo.
It's due to the fact that I became addicted to this show on TV, and I usually only watch shows when I workout.
Victoria. I'm not sure what made me click on it because I still can't figure out our new cable system we installed a few months ago. But I am full on hooked. It is so good! It's like a historic romance novel brought to life.
And I'm crazy jealous of all her sparkly things. I could totally rock a crown, and some gigantic diamond earrings.
Sparkles totally pair well with yoga pants.
Between Victoria and my new found love for This Is Us, I should have eight pack abs and buns of steel by March.
A girl can dream...
And that wraps up my favorites for this week!
Now onto our weekend filled with a little more six celebrations, and some much needed down time.
Happy Weekend Y'all!
