Friday Favorites-4.12.24 {Nixon’s 14}

Happy FRIDAY! It’s another BIG DAY in our house! But before I get into all of that, let me remind you I’m here with my girl, Andrea, sharing some FAVORITES! We host the link-up each week and would love for you to join us! My list of FAVORITES today is all about this guy…

Nixon Talbot turns FOURTEEN!

And I couldn’t be more proud of the young man he’s becoming. Here I am again this week all up in my feels! Two birthdays in one week is too much!

He’s still my sports-loving kid who’s either playing a game or watching a game. He’s got the best sense of humor with just the perfect amount of sarcasm. And he loves hanging out with his friends {like all teens}.

Sidenote…he was absolutely THE toughest toddler in The Slaughter House {and who am I kidding, probably the toughest toddler in my ENTIRE friend group. he’s well aware…he lived it…he remembers}, but let me tell you now his teen self makes ALL THOSE crazy toddler days well worth it! {Let this be some major encouragement if you have a tough kiddo. They’ll grow up and they’ll be amazing! You can do this, Mama! Keep loving them hard!}

My goodness! What a joy and honor it is to get to see him grow into the young man he’s becoming.

We love you so very much, Nixon! I can’t wait to see what this year holds. I’m praying it’s your best year yet! Love you big! XO


Next week I’m traveling with Tab on a work trip so I won’t be posting here but I did add some things to my spring wardrobe I’m excited to share when I return. I told you guys I’d share them here and I will as soon as I’m back. Look for my trip recap on April 22nd! I hope to see you back here then! Have a great week!

      Are you being sarcastic? hahahahaha! YES! The kid hitting the others at the play date? That was Nixon. You’ve blocked it out.
