Friday Favorites

Ladies!  It has been a WEEK!  I’ve never been happier to see the weekend come.  ha!  I’m joining forces with my girls, Narci and Andrea to share our Friday Favorites!  You should join us!

First of all, I’m SO glad several of you agreed with me!  I absolutely LOVED Lauren Graham in Gilmore Girls and Parenthood.  I’m a huge fan so I wanted to love this book, but I’m having the hardest time getting into it.  After reading those comments it’s so nice to know I’m not alone.  I’m going to keep trying.  I’ll let you know how it goes!

Tab left on Sunday to go skiing with Andrew and some friends in Vail for several days.  He had two other business trips right after back to back so the second he gets home this mama is going to be off-duty for a few hours!  Wahoo!!  I was his biggest supporter to go-I get to see my girlfriends at the gym, at drop-off, at lunch and he doesn’t have time during the day to do that.  I wanted him to go and have fun with friends, but now I’m ready for him to be home!  Ha!

I’ve been solo with the crazies.  🙂  I’ve shared before that around these parts we don’t worry about matching socks.  Now, I must clarify that I wouldn’t pair a long sock with a short sock, but I’m talking same type of socks just different colors can totally be worn together.  Check out the proof!  
 That ecard was a little graphic, but you get the idea, right?  The kiddos and I hit up a couple stores and oh my goodness!  I’m looking at candles, telling one kid to stop touching the other, all while the other kid is telling me they need to go to the bathroom.  UGH!  #momlife

We’ve had our fair share of pizza this week.  Tab is the healthiest eater in our house, so with him gone we’ve enjoyed our favorites!  haha!  She’s smiling because pizza was for lunch.  🙂

This week I totally felt like this!!  Let me just say I’m so thankful we don’t have many clocks in the house and my kids don’t really tell time or look at them.  #earlybedtimes

The bible study I’m doing was so good yesterday.  It was all about waiting and how everyone during one stage or another (usually) experiences a wait.  Waiting for a new job.  Waiting to get pregnant.  Waiting to get into the program.  Waiting of some kind.  
This verse, girls, it’s good stuff!

Yesterday I got to have lunch with these favorites!  🙂  We were being silly and sending this to a friend.  You know that whole pat your head while rubbing your tummy?  Well, I was never good at that.  I’m trying to take a picture, while smiling, holding up four fingers (but I’m pretty sure I held up all five), and trying prevent that “I’m closest to the camera so my head looks way bigger than everyone else” look (yea, it didn’t work).  But tacos, queso, and girl talk are always a favorite!

And maybe my favorite of the week.  I asked Nixon and Smith to help me get this big box broken down just so it’d fit through the door.  They finished the job!  These two spent over fifteen minutes jumping on this box.

If you need me, my people and I will be watching Fuller House!  EEK!!  Can’t wait!

Hope you have the BEST weekend!!  XOXO

    I am loving that Bible study. I absolutely can not wait until next week when Kate Harden is writing. She is my pastor's wife and I just adore her personally and adore her writing.

    I can relate to shopping with kids, and it doesn't get easier the older they get. My 10 year old is just as bad as the 4 year old. I've already watched 4 episodes of Fuller House today. I'm thinking it might be an all nighter haha. Can't wait to hear how the Disney cruise goes! We went on our first Disney cruise back in October. It was a blast! Make sure you go to port adventures as soon as you get on board to get a scheduled time for the princess meet and greet.

    Hi Erika,
    Does the bible study you are doing have a name or is there someway I would be able to find/do/read the one you did on 'waiting'? I know I could greatly benefit from it.
    Thank you for your time!
