Friday Favorites

You know what today is?!


The Slaughter crew is SO happy this day has finally arrived.  

Today, I have a little catch up with what’s been going around here for you.  I’m joining Narci and Andrea to host Friday Favorites!  We’d love for you to join us!

 First up, THANK YOU for praying for my friends, the Ruses.  I don’t have details to share just yet {and will never share too much…their life, their story}, but please know your prayers are being felt and heard.  We trust that God is moving in big ways.


Please note little sister wanting to be a part of this picture.  🙂

Ebby Lee performed in four dances this year and did great!  So proud of her!

Britt went backstage to give Madeley a pep talk and calm her nerves.  

Just kidding…but I mean aren’t they CUTE?!

All the GIRLS!!

This duo has been dancing hard all year long in preparation for the big recital.

After jazz they had hip hop.  Please notice, Kensington’s attempt at getting out of the picture.  haha!

I was IMPRESSED by their hip hop moves!

Then it was JAZZ time!

After this pose, I’m thinking we should sign them up for some sort of drama production.

And we ended the evening with ballet. 

 What a FUN group of girls!

So proud of our dancer.  🙂

Bowen thought he needed to enjoy the step and repeat himself. 

Spring Recital 2018…huge success!


If you missed my “Currently” post earlier this week, you need to check it out!  Thank you so much for all your recommendations!  You guys shared the best sippy cups, Costco haul goodies, and much much more.  I’m telling you…the comments are GOOD!


That’s it for today!  Thank you so much for reading!  We’re off to enjoy Summer Break Day #1!
