Oh Friday. I needed you.
Just like every Friday, today, I’m linking up with Narci, Erika and Andrea and sharing some of my favorite things from this week.
Happy happy happy Friday!
This. Starts. Today!!!!!!
Oh my goodness! If you are looking for me, please don’t bother. I will be ignoring my family and binge watching Fuller House. I feel like I’m 12 again. I am so excited!!!
Okay, so I think this only applies to people in my area…but look around because maybe there is one in your area too. On Satruday, Narci texted Erika and me and told us that she had just used a service called Pedia Q to come to her house and diagnose Presley instead of taking Presley into the urgent care center. Narci was raving about this. Fast forward to Monday when Smith came home and didn’t feel well. So, I downloaded the app (like Narci told me to) and within 20 minutes they were at my house.
Y’all…they came to my house.
For no extra charge.
Instead of taking my three kids to the urgent care place (because at this point, it’s 4:00 PM and we can’t get in to see our pediatrician) and possibly exposing the healthy ones to germs, Smith was able to nap on the couch until the PA arrived, Kensington was able to do her homework and then get ready for jazz (Erika was coming to get her) and Ashby was able to just play. The PA was super, super sweet, she came in, took Smith’s temp (he was running a fever), gave him a strep test, confirmed that it was strep and then called in his prescription to our pharmacy. On top of being so nice, she gave Smith a stuffed animal and was so engaging with all three kids. Then the next day, she texted me twice to check on him. And this didn’t cost me a penny more than a trip to the urgent care (which is where I would have had to have gone).
I don’t know about you…but I feel like my kids never get sick during regular office hours for our pediatrician, I feel like it’s always on the weekends or at night and now, I’m spoiled rotten with this service. They emailed me the bill as soon as they left and there was zero up charge. Life. Changer. DFW friends, download the app…other friends, google this. I bet there is something similar near you too.
You confuse me every day. Some mornings, when I wake up, the temperature is 63. Other mornings, it’s 36. I don’t know what to wear and I’m about to just put on yoga clothes and wear them around all the time to simplify things. And I have no plans to go to yoga. Please decide where you are going to be and stay. The weather is killing my allergies and making it hard to get dressed every morning.
I put this little outfit on the other morning and then went to let the dog out and realized it was a little too chilly…
…so, I came back in and added a sweater. Layers are my friend during this transitional weather.
So, the gingham shirt comes from J Crew. They make the best button up shirts and I always love their gingham (it comes in several colors and I always buy a 2 just for a size reference) and then I know I’ve told you about my sweater approximately 4 billion times, but it’s J Crew’s Tippi Sweater and over the years, I have bought about two a year…which means, I have approximately 35. They always look cute with or without a layer underneath. Right now, they come in 17 different colors.
And my flats. I. love. my. flats. I don’t know you Tory Burch but if I met you, I would kiss you. Your flats are so comfy! They’re called “foldable” because they pack up nice and flat when you travel…but if I’m traveling, I’m not packing these babies, I’m wearing them in the airport because they’re easily removed (thank you security) and they’re so comfy! I can walk (or run) from gate to gate in these! Love them. They come in 12 different colors.
Speaking of shoes…my new wedges came yesterday! Eeeks! Okay, online it says to order a half size down, which I did, and they fit like a glove! I cannot wait to take them on my vacation and then wear the heck out of them all spring and summer long!
If you prefer a shorter heel (I know some of you do), here is another Steve Madden option for you with a smaller heel (I love Steve Madden wedges because they’re always comfy!)…
Cute, right?! And the wedge isn’t quite as tall.
This week, I did a post called What’s Your Number about the hardest transition kiddo for you. Was it going from one kid to two? Two to three? Three to four? For us, it was none to one. That. Was. So. Hard. If you haven’t shared your number with us, click here and comment! Also, if you’re currently in the middle of your hard transition kiddo, read the comments. I promise you, you will be encouraged :).
A little Easter recipe for your weekend…
