Friday-ness

So so happy it's Friday, with a great weekend ahead of us. And now we can chat about some of the awesome stuff this week has had to offer!
{1} Thoughtful Stuff
A friend of mine at work left me a card with two starbursts on the outside and it said how she's sad that we don't get to see each other much during the week but reminded me that she's here for me. With Fathers Day approaching, and that ever-present reminder that this will be my first without him physically here with us, it was nice to have my friend reach out and let me know she's there to lean on. I swear I am the luckiest when it comes to amazing friends :)

{2} Weekend Plans
(a shot from the event when we went last year--GW's view from his porch)

MG and I have plans tonight for dinner and a movie with our friends who rent our condo--we've had these plans for a few weeks and I'm glad they're still happening. Then on Saturday we have plans with two of my friends from work (and our husbands) to go to Mount Vernon (George Washington's house) for an evening enjoying local brews, music and food, all while wandering around the grounds that George Washington once lived. I love taking advantage of the historical places that are around us, and doing it with friends is even better!

{3} Quality Time
I've been loving this weather this week! It started off hot and in the 90s, but the humidity was really low (praise!) and then it went down to the 70s and it's been gorgeous! MG and I decided to take advantage of the nice weather in the evenings by taking family walks after dinner to get some fresh air and walk off our meals. I love that time and Cooper's been enjoying getting a 3rd walk for the day, too :)

{4} Favorite Video
Did you guys see the Broadway edition of carpool karaoke with James Cordon? It is freaking incredible! Watch it--I dare you not to smile!

{5}Funnies
When parents seem to think the perfect time to initiate testing is 10 days before school ends

When *that* person posts their vague drama online

When your boss asks you if you want to move to a school where you know a crazypants parent is going to be:

When someone eats a banana around me and I smell it

When you're deciding if you want wine, beer or a margarita with your dinner

Hoping your Friday is fast, and your weekend is fun-filled! Catch you on Monday, lovies!

  3. Oh my goodness, how cool that event is held where George Washington lived?! That's awesome. One thing I don't miss at all about being of facebook is all the "vague" posts. I hated that!

  4. I loved the Broadway carpool karaoke!!! Hilarious! And I love that y'all have been enjoying nightly walks. My sister and I walked yesterday for 45 minutes and it literally felt like 15. Time flies when you're enjoying yourself :) Have a wonderful Friday!

  13. The solution to the alcohol dilemma? Have yourself a beerita with dinner & then a glass of wine with dessert or before bed. I've had to hide a few people on Facebook because of their constant vague drama. Either spill the beans or keep it to yourself!

  17. Sounds like a weekend full of fun. I love that outside of that card. And your co-worker is so thoughtful to write you that sweet note. I hate when others post about their drama in a vague way and make us wait or never tell us.

  18. The weather has been fabulous here, too. We have been taking walks after dinner, too but I set a bad precedent by suggesting we walk to the Italian ice place last week. Now Taylor thinks walk equals dessert and I cant resist either.

  20. Haha!! the banana one!! Yes!!! I don't like bananas at all and feel the same way. Owen keeps trying to give me bites of his (he's obsessed). gag, no. Move away with that! Have a fun weekend, I would LOVE all those historical places you live near!!!!!!!

  26. I love when people take them time to write handwritten notes of encouragement. It does my heart good and your story makes me want to send out a few cards to friends this week. Thinking of you and your family this week!

  27. Mount Vernon is one of my favorite places that I've ever visited, so I think it's so awesome that you get to attend events like this one on the grounds. Hope you had a great time, and Happy Sunday!
