Friends, I’m all messed up and turned around today.
I realize Valentine’s Day is on Monday…yet, three out of my four kids have Valentine’s Day parties at school today…plus, there is a Valentine’s dance at the middle school. It feels sooooooo much like February 14th.
On top of that, this time last week, we had ice, snow and freezing temps…as I type this sentence, it’s 70 degrees, sunny, and I’m wondering if it’s too soon to wear shorts.
I’m not quite sure what’s happening in my world, but I’m sure glad to know that it’s at least FRIDAY!
As always, I’m linking up with my friends Andrea and Erika and sharing some faves. We have volleyball this weekend and lots of family time in-between. Here’s hoping it’s sunny and warm where you live too! (I know it’s not, but let me just be hopeful! 😉 !)
My first Fave this week…
…Miss Ashby is officially one week post-op and outside of some stitches, she’s doing f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s!
This little rock star was at school every day this week being the peppy, bright, sparkly girl that she is, and it made my mama heart oh so happy. Who would have thought that #23 would be our best?! Some things are better not to know in advance. If you would have told me way back at #1 that #23 would be our best…well…I would not have handled that well. #truth
It’s hard to slow this kid down for a pic these days, so I was really excited on Tuesday when he stopped for a photo before his orchestra concert. He’s just getting so BIG and so much FUN! While the girls love watching the Olympics with me, Smith is obsessed just like his mama. We were up waaaaay past our bedtimes every single night this week watching. It’s really hard for me to tell him no when he still wants to do things with me. He’s a fun Starbucks date, co-dog walker and late night Olympic watcher (among other things). He’s just at a great age, and I’m soaking it all up.
These are little things, but they’ve made me really happy all week, so I’m sharing…
…I’ve had this really big tray on my coffee table for about a year and never loved what was on it. The other day, I took five minutes, opened my Amazon app, made a few purchases and now, I am SO PLEASED!!!! It was always one of those things I walked by and thought “I don’t love it, but I don’t have time to mess with it”, but I finally just did it and have been so happy with the result!
I don’t typically buy home things from Amazon, but Sheaffer told me to (ha!) and well, it was so good that I did it again…
…next to my side of the bed. Over the last year or so, I had accumulated just a bunch of books, random stuff on my side, so I decided to start over…
Speaking of Amazon finds…
…I am obsessed with this jumpsuit! You guys, it’s so soft and so comfy…it has pockets, you can cinch in the waist and I love the ankles…you can dress it up, dress it down..it’s AMAZING! Plus, it comes in 32 other colors and patterns as well and is under $30! So many colors, so many patterns, so comfy…it would be perfect for a flight or trip. I love it!
I topped it with my denim jacket and was set for the 70 degree day!
Speaking of denim (and easy, every day outfits for transitional weather), the following day, I wore…
…this chambray shirt, my Spanx leggings and my sneakers. Comfy, easy, works for wacky weather fluctuations and keeps me “pulled together” while still being super comfy. Right now, my chambray shirt is on sale! I bought mine in a 2 and would say it runs TTS (a little roomier if you’re in-between).
Has your family watched Home Team yet on Netflix?! Oh my goodness, it’s SO CUTE!!! If you need an easy movie for the family, this is it! This is based on the true story of Saints coach Sean Payton returning home to Texas the one season he was suspended from the NFL and kind of accidentally started coaching his son’s team. It’s just really cute, funny and sweet. We are big fans over here!
Easy neutral activewear over here! I told you that I love these leggings so much that I bought them twice! Here they are again in brown taupe along with a Vuori tank (you KNOW how much I love Vuori) and sports bra.
After yoga, I topped it with my Sherpa pullover and we hung out all day in the snow!
