Happy, happy, happy Friday!
First of all, friends! Thank you so much for your sweet encouragement and words of support yesterday when I shared Madeley’s genetic testing with you. Oh my word, you ladies know how to get me all sorts of choked up and emotional! Thank you. I am forever blessed by this community here.
Well, our kids have a random day off from school today, so hello three day weekend! (Side note, I wish they would just save all of these random days and let the kids get out of school earlier. Right?! They go to school this year until June 7…we should skip that day instead of this one!) Any-who…our weekend apparently is starting NOW, so let me share my faves this week and get on with the fun. Here’s hoping you have the best weekend! I’m linking up with my girls Andrea, Erika and Narci for today’s favorites. Love those three 🙂 .
This week, my posts were full of YOUR AMAZING SUGGESTIONS! Holy cow! One post after the next made me so happy because you ladies have all the wisdom/advice/ideas. First up…
On Monday, I shared my favorite things to do/see in Boston and then you ladies from that great city chimed in with your recommendations too. Whoa! If you are planning a trip to Boston soon, head HERE to read my post and check out all of the amazing suggestions. If you’re not planning a trip to Boston soon…you should 😉 .
Speaking of great suggestions…on Tuesday, I shared my new hobby…
…canning and preserving. Um, yeah…so it’s more complicated than I thought. Wowzers! I shared all about this stuff…
…and then you ladies shared your tips and tricks too. Side note, I forgot to mention this in the original post, but I turned to YouTube for help as well! Like when I was ready to open my marmalade jar to sample it and didn’t know how to take the pressurized lid off. Yeah. I felt dumb. I had to look it up on YouTube.
Want to get away?! Already dreaming about your next vacation either later on this year or next? I keep thinking about our vacation last year…
…our epic Alaskan Cruise with my mom’s entire side of the family. It was so much fun! Well, if you book a trip with us this May (departing any time in 2018 or 2019), we will put your name in a drawing to enter to win a $500 Visa Gift Card!
Fun, right?! Right now, we are accepting new client vacations departing after July 1 to Mexico, Walt Disney World and cruises all over. If you have any questions or want more info, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Earlier this year, I made a resolution to memorize one verse a week. Not going to lie…I’m trying, but it’s hard. This brain does not memorize things like it used to! I’ve been posting our weekly verse on Instagram and/or FB and then here too (if I remember!). This is the verse from this week…
The other verses I’m working on so far are…
1 Corinthians 13:13
You all know my friend Amanda. (a.k.a. the girl who got me making jam), well, we work out together several mornings a week and let me tell you…her hair always looks so darn good.
Like seriously, I roll out of bed and show up looking like I stuck my finger in a socket and Amanda looks like she just came from Drybar.
About three weeks ago, her hair was exceptionally fantastic and when I commented on this fact, she told me that she was using this now…
…I pulled up my Amazon app right then and there and ordered me some. And friends, IT’S THE BEST HAIR MASK I’VE EVER USED. And you all know that I’ve used a million! It really is FANTASTIC! I use it about twice a week after I shampoo. I put it in and then wait a minute or two before rinsing it out. I honest to goodness think it’s awesome! I mean…I don’t look like Amanda…but it’s a step in the right direction 😉 .
Last year, I found this super, super, super cute romper…
…and wore it all summer long. Isn’t it darling?!?!
Well, look what I just found again…
…they brought the same style back in a bunch of new colors! I may have ordered two. This one came yesterday…
…and I love it! It’s perfect for summer and totally a favorite of mine!! I also ordered THIS ONE because I wanted to see which one I loved more, but it hasn’t arrived yet. I’ll let you know!
Now, in this brand, I always size down. Just an FYI!
And wrapping up our Friday…
That’s it for this Friday! I hope you all have the BEST weekend!!
