The second week of school is in the books (no pun intended) and this Mama is happy about that. I swear, the older Alise gets, the more she procrastinates and it drives me insane. Our morning routine is still struggling - thanks to make up and hair straighteners! - which have replaced breakfast. How we ever got out the door last year with all that came with cheerleading, I'll never understand, but I do believe we need to step up our morning routine game.
Having said all that, it's FRIDAY, Girls, and it's been a while since I've participated in Friday Favorites, so I'm playing along today and counting down the hours till five o'clock! Cheers to some favorites for this week!
SO excited to have this Girlie back from El Salvador! AND she came back bearing trophies for most rebounds and blocked shots in the league! #ProudMamaMoment Stephanie flew in on Tuesday afternoon and I picked her up from the airport with red velvet cake balls in my hand (per her request)! She said she is so excited to be back in a country that speaks English and understands what she's ordering at a restaurant. Ha! I am so glad to have my girls back together again! Mya, the cat? Not so much.
Leigh Ann Tuohy hearted my comment on Twitter this week and made this mama's day! I just love her! I just know we could be the best of friends! Leigh Ann is the author of, The Blind Side. Maybe you've heard of it?
I know the eclipse was what everyone was talking about on Monday. I really hadn't planned to watch it until some co-workers brought some "official" glasses into the office, so we all took turns sharing them. We didn't stay outside the entire time because it was too dang hot, but we went out twice at about a third of the way through the eclipse and then towards the end. I was just amazed the rest of the afternoon by God's creativeness. One of my co-workers snagged this pic and we all wondered if that's another planet in the picture.
Let's get the party started!! I have been busy every night this week getting ready for a wedding shower this weekend at my house. I am SO excited about it, but I'm also feeling a little overwhelmed - which is SO unlike me. I think because so many decisions were made between me and the other hostess last minute and that's just not how I normally roll. So I called in reinforcements with my mom and she has been a HUGE help running errands and picking things up for me during the day since she is retired. Lucky her! I plan on doing a whole post about decor and food and all that jazz so stay tuned.
My blog friend Tanya recently shared about some cute blouses from Walmart. While I was in there this week, picking up things for the shower, I found the blouses AND some oh-so cute military vests that come in every color imaginable and less than $15!
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find the exact vest on Walmart's website, but this one is similar. I bought the olive and I love it!
