Friday Favorites {1.12.2017}

Hello Friday!
I don't know about y'all, but this girl is ready for the weekend!

Today I'm joining my blogging buddies NarciAndrea, & Erika for Friday favorites!
Let's get right into the list of favorites...
Getting back onto a somewhat 'regular' schedule! 
We spent most of our first week back from winter break at home enjoying snow days. While I certainly love having everyone at home relaxing, I definitely enjoyed getting stuff back to normal for our family.
Back to school, and we even saw temperatures well above freezing finally. It got so warm that the boys were able to wear their favorite athletic shorts & play outside a few days.

Nataleigh was also back in the gym for cheerleading practice, and Wednesdays just wear us all out!
So much so that someone had to be held and basically slept through me brushing her teeth for her!
I shared on Tuesday here my goals for January 2017, and one of them was to increase my water intake. It's been a bit of a struggle for this mama who doesn't love water naturally!
{Give me iced coffee & Dr. Peppers}
I've really been trying, and I've found it easiest if I just continue to fill and refill my hubby's TERVIS cup with water! It's really been the easiest option for my current lifestyle!

Speaking of this week's posts, I had several favorites.
Three Things are always my favorite. 
I love kicking off the new year with sharing where we are in life!
Also, my buddy Erin is back with her 10 on the 10th link-up, and it's a definite favorite!

A couple of weeks ago I found Nataleigh a sleep mask, and she has to wear it every night!
It's the cutest little thing ever, and it was under $5.
5 Below is our new favorite little find for the randomness that my kids love. I found them yoga mats since they've gotten into yoga, recently, and everything in the store is under $5!

I shared Monday that we snuck away to the Hot Springs Spa & Resort, and I cannot wait to get back up there for more relaxation!
Our calendar got even more crazy with several additions, and the peace & quiet & calmness of Sunday is desperately missed!!

We have another fun weekend ahead of us, and I cannot wait to get into it all!

See y'all Monday!



  1. Amen to a normal schedule and routine!! And why for it is so hard to drink water! I struggle with this everyday. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  2. I have not heard of the store 5 Below. We have gotten back into a routine here too but yesterday's bonus off day was a sweet little relaxing day at home with nothing from sunup to sundown which is so rare with activities these days! xoxo ERIN

    1. I love how snow days can slow down even the busiest of people. Maybe hats why they are my favorites! :) enjoy your weekend.

  3. Ohhhhhh Nataleigh! What a sweet girl. Guy has been wearing his shorts but with the compression gear underneath them and loving it because it has been COLD. It is also so funny to see him in leggings. Hahahaha! Good job with the water intake! I loved all your posts this week (just like every week)!

    1. We normally stick the compression leggings under their shorts, but we’ve been crazy warm the past couple of days. We do, however, now have crazy cold temperatures approaching, so those shorts and tees days are done for a bit! :)

  4. Wahoo for Friday! I’m usually one to thrive on routine, but I sure am missing those slow and lazy days of Christmas break! Yay for temperatures above freezing!! I am the worlds worst about drinking water. I need to get better about that. A getaway to Hot Springs sounds amazing. Have a wonderful weekend!!

    1. Thanks! Just take me back to the Hot Springs...like right now! :)
