{Friday Favorites}

The past few weeks have been pretty nuts around here. Last Friday, after days of speculating, my husband was officially given doctors orders to “really take it easy” since he was officially diagnosed with two broken ribs (hence, the no Friday Favorites last week). Being that my husband is pretty hands on and helpful with the kids, this is definitely making me one tired momma! Thankful, he’s feeling better and better with each day, so hopefully we’ll be back to normal in no time.

Here we go…

1. Good grades! I am so so proud that all of our kids ended up with mainly A’s and few B’s for quarter 3! Our oldest has worked his butt off this quarter in his advanced classes and had all A’s and only 2 B’s for the quarter. I am hoping that praying that their desire to do well in school continues as they keep moving on up. Speaking of which, how in the world are we already in the 4th quarter!?

2. A clean car. Today I took my gigantic, filthy expedition to the car wash and happily forked over $12 for a good cleaning inside and out. I’ll tell you what, a clean car makes me feel refreshed, so much more organized and quite simply, makes me smile.

3. My daughter’s artwork was chosen to be on display at the local Alliance for the Arts. Only 25 pieces of art were chosen from her school, which is such a big honor. We went to the open house reception last night and walked around admiring all of the amazing work. I couldn’t believe some of the talent and I am so proud that my daughter made it into such an amazing show!

4. The baby chicks my son’s school are growing. They have been heating the eggs for two or three weeks now and the baby chicks have started to hatch in the past week. It’s so amazing and we’ve had so much fun watching the eggs slowly crack open and all the different chicks start to make their big debut! I *almost* want to do this little project at our house….*almost*.

Here’s just a few other things that made smile this week (in no particular order :)):

1. Lots of lunches with friends. Thank you Chickfila for the indoor playground. It keeps me sane.

2. Tropical Smoothie.

3. Lunch with my daughter.

4. Bible Study.

5. My husband.

6. Time at the pool.

I hope your weekend is amazing!
