Woohoo! It’s Friday and we are especially excited for Friday today around here because my brother and sis in law are coming with their kiddos for a visit!!! We definitely don’t get to see them as often as I would like, so I am looking forward to lots of fun cousin time, and girl time and beating my bro at Settlers of Catan #gamenerd #bringitbro.
Last week I started 4 Friday Faves, just a simple and fun list of something I am LOVING, LIKING, made me LAUGH and something that is making me LINGER! I would love to hear anything from your week that falls into the 4 L’s too!
LAUGH: Our HEB (grocery store) just got these cute carts for the kids to push!
The boys had an absolute blast… and although I had a few stressful moments when they lost control of their carts and crashed into some aisle displays and other customers… eeeekkk…it really was the cutest thing ever and their excitement about having their own shopping carts was adorable. It was also nice (for once) that other customers were staring at us because they were getting a good laugh out of watching the boys… instead of the usual stares I get because the boys are screaming, or wrestling in the cart or throwing a fit because I won’t buy them candy ect….while I usually feel like we leave a trail of havoc and sore eardrums wherever we go, this time I felt like we left a little trail of warm fuzzies for the other customers hearts… so… your welcome world… and thank you, thank you to HEB… finally a store that figured out how to channel my kids energy for the betterment of humanity and my sanity! #lovemyHEB.
LOVE: Our newborn photos by the absolutely phenomenal Tabby Z Photography. If you are in the greater Houston, Bryan/College Station area check this girl out, you will not be disappointed!!! She is so full of joy and peace and will immediately put everyone at ease. She also managed to get good pics of my toddlers… so yeah #miracleworker. I am old school and actually love to send out birth announcements and write addresses, and in this age of instant everything I actually love getting and sending snail mail. So I am just now sharing these fabulous photos, from when Zeke was only a few days old. Here are a few of my absolute faves!!!!
LIKE: Let me just say… y’all are my people! And never was that more clear to me then when I made an IG and FB survey asking if it was too early to use the Glade fall scents I had just bought… and I received a resounding NO!!! Yeah!!! Come on… you know I have been flooding my house with scents of apple pie, pumpkin and harvesty goodness and I am liking it so much!!!! Next up on my welcoming fall list is making pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!!!!
LINGER: I mentioned this above but I really enjoy the process of writing cards, even the simple act of writing addresses is very therapeutic to me. I even enlisted Caden’s help as my “licker” to help seal the envelopes. I loved seeing how excited he was to help me send the birth announcements. In a world so saturated with instant media and so few things being tactile, I love slowing down and taking the time to write cards. I don’t do it enough but am always so thankful when I do.
How was your week! I would love to hear about a little or big thing that you are loving, liking, lingering on, or made you laugh!!!!???? With my family in town things will be quiet in the social media/blog realm next week as I plan to unplug and just enjoy our time together. But I will hopefully pop back in for my 4 Friday Faves!!! Have a wonderful weekend and week!
