Friday Faves

Happy Friday before a holiday weekend! This is the one where all of the pools open up, cook outs happen, and it feels like the official start to Summer. Lots to be excited about!!
Let's talk about some favorites!
{1}Thoughtful Gift
On Wednesday I got an unexpected delivery on my doorstep. I opened the package and inside was a very thoughtful book, from an incredibly sweet friend, Owen. As much as I hate that either of us (and anyone else) is going through a struggle with infertility, it helps to know that there are amazing people there to support and love to get us through. I'm glad that I have you to lean on, and vice versa. Thanks for being wonderful!

{2} Favorite Find

In my teacher appreciation basket a couple of weeks ago I got a bunch of stuff, and in there was a granola bar. I was super hungry in the middle of the morning and went for the KIND Fruit and Nut: Dark Chocolate Almond and Coconut bar that I'd stashed away in my desk and it was SO good! Plus it's gluten and dairy free for those who need that! Check it out!

{3}Surprise!
My friend's husband arranged a surprise dinner for her on Wednesday night for her birthday. It was a small get together with some friends and it was great to give her an unexpected surprise when she walked in the door. The food was delicious and the company was great. This has been an almost 10 year friendship and I was glad I got to celebrate with my friend :)

{4} Memorial Day Weekend
Like most of you who have off for this weekend, I'm jazzed to get a 3-day weekend starting this afternoon! Three-day weekends are always a blast. We have some cookouts scheduled, family time, and as much time outdoors as we can. Gimme all the sunshine! I hope everyone enjoys the long weekend, and takes a moment to think about those whose lives we lost because of their bravery and willingness to serve and protect us all.

{5} Funnies
How I feel after I get my hair done and blown out (only less man-like haha)

When someone stares at you out of their side view mirror in the car while you're stopped behind them:

When JoJo picks the two drunk guys and the erectile dysfunction guy on the first night of the Bachelorette

When Luanne (RHONY) says her "cool/uncool" line repeatedly, Brandi (RHOD) says "Jesus Juice" or Leanne says "charity"

What I envision my 3-day weekend plans to look like

Hoping your Friday is fast, and your weekend is long and fabulous!

  9. What a thoughtful thing Owen did! And we love Kind bars at my house but haven't tried that one. I love the dark chocolate and peanut butter and the vanilla and blueberry--so good! And I'm totally feeling your Lauren Conrad GIF about all of those reality stars--especially LeeAnne--she kills me with her charity "world"

  29. Infertility sucks.

    Okay so erectile dysfunction guy was actually my favorite. That's a super hard job and he must be super smart to do it and also he seems so sweet! I'm a total nerd though and part of my husband's dissertation is on Viagra so I find that science really fascinating. I know he'll go home like next week though so don't despair.

    Have the best weekend!
