Friday Favorites!

Happy Friday friends!  Wow, what a week!  Is it just me or should Tuesday really have been Friday!?!?  Linking up to ErikaAndrea and Narci to share my favorites from this week!

Let's get started with the obvious....

Valentines Day
 Definitely a favorite this week!  
John had so much fun at his class Friendship party! #allthelove

Just a little Elton John inspired Snapchat Valentine

All of his valentine's loot

I loved doing this for him!  Andrea shared this idea on her blog and I started doing it as well.  Definitely a tradition that I will continue to do every year!

was not a favorite.  But this coffee cup got me through.

Warm Weather!
OMG - it's been so up and down where I live in Virginia.  One day it's in the 70's and then next the low is in the 20's.  But let me tell you when it was warm you better believe we were soaking it up as much as we possibly could!

This is a trail right beside my office at work and when it's warm I walk the river at lunch.  It's great!

We took advantage of the amazing weather on Sunday and headed down to my parents house at the river after Church.

As you can see we were very happy about the warm weather!

DIY Necklace, big flowy cardigans, Lauren Condrad Cords, and Tom's wedges are my favorite this week!

I got these flowers from Aldi's the day after Valentines for $1.99!!!  
Can you believe they were only $1.99??? 
I was so excited, nothing beats a lovely bouquet of flowers on your bedside table....and for $1.99 - what a steal!

Trying to eat more salads and so far I'm loving them!  
So easy for a quick weeknight dinner.

Love this little Hulk!
Funny story I have to share - after I took this picture he took off the mask and hands and was trying to take off the shirt but it got stuck over his head.  I asked him if he needed help and he said no he could do it himself.
After trying to take it off with no success I went over and pulled on one of the sleeves to get him free and he exclaimed, "ugh, why did you do that!?  You ruined my life!!!"
I mean I had to slap the magazine I was reading over my face to keep from laughing out loud!  I ruined his life at 3 years old!!!
Heaven only knows what I'm going to do when he's 13?!?!

But then he looks like this when he falls asleep and it's just the sweetest thing ever!

Happy weekend friends!!!!

Show and Tell Tuesday (on Wednesday) | My Loves

Happy (belated) Valentine's Day!  I really wanted to get this out yesterday but completely forgot about it!

I'm linking up with Andrea for her Show and Tell Tuesday series and today I'm sharing my loves with you.

These two right here are the biggest loves in my life.  My two John's.  Husband, John, and I have been married for 8 1/2 years and have been together for almost 13 years.  I love this man for so many reasons but I have to say one of the things I love the most about him is what a wonderfully amazing father he is to our son.  I love him more and more each day!

On to my second love, my little big love.  My son, John, is a blessing in every sense of the word.  We tried for two years to have a baby and the day we got to see this little peanut on the ultrasound was one of the happiest in my life.  The day that I got to hold him in my arms for the first time is another moment I will be forever grateful for and never forget.

 He is the funniest, cuddliest, and all around amazing kid.  He'll say things that will make you do a double take and he marches to the beat of his own drum.  My husband and mother-in-law like to say he's been here before.  I believe he's an angel sent from Heaven and he makes our family complete.

Weekend Rewind - Home Depot Workshop

Does anyone else have Spring Fever!  Oh my, it's in the 70's here and I'm LOVING it!!!  I'm over winter and ready for Spring and Summer. #givemeallthewarmweather

This past weekend was a fun one.  We enrolled John into his first ever Home Depot Workshop and he had an absolute blast!  

Look at that face!  He's so proud! 😍

Fun things to note about the Home Depot Workshop:
It's Free
Your child gets a cute little apron
They get to make something and take it with them
They get some 'flair'
It's Free
They get a balloon
They work off some little kid energy
It's Free

I mean we thought this was the coolest thing ever! Loved it, will definitely be doing it again!
