Friday Favorites

It's Friday!
Ladies we made it to another week, let the weekend celebration begin!
Today i'm linking up with Shay and Erika to share some of my favorites from the week. 

So this is a 2 part favorite.
1. I got an impromptu Date night with this guy. It was amazing, we did a little shopping and then we got Moe's...aka I really just ate all the Guacamole with a side of Corona. 
2. That Salmon Pink Puffer Vest, David got it for me for Christmas (read I picked it out, put it on hold and he picked it up) and its ben my go to piece for any outfit! 
See I even wore it Tuesday night when I took these photos. I bet you anything I'll be wearing them today or Saturday. 

I just love it. It's bright salmon pink!
Light weight, but still really really warm. 
You can find it here. It also comes in Orange and Navy.
Plus its on SALE! 

Have y'all heard this song?
Its currently one of my favorites. 
It's the perfect pick me up song, need motivation at the gym. Play It!
motivation to pick up after the kiddo tornado. Play It!
motivation to bust out work. Play It!
Also huge shout out to Emily Ley and her January playlist on Spotify! 
Our family plays a lot of her playlist on repeat or I'm constantly adding songs to my own playlist. 
Here is the link to her January playlist, your welcome in advance.
Honorable mentions from that list:
1. New Years Day | Pentatonix
2. She Sets the World on Fire | Gavin Degraw
3. Castle on the Hill | Ed Sheeran 
4. Goldmine | Colbie Caillat 

This lightweight sweater is my new go to favorite top!
I bought it last week on a quick run into Target and found this on the clearance rack. 
I honestly wore it the next day and to be extra honest I washed it just to wear it again later in the week. 

I have even paired it with my go to vest. 
Okay let me be honest again, I have even gone to Targets website multiple times to look at more color options for this same light weight sweater. I have been good, but I'm sure by the end of the weekend another one or two will be making its way to our house it a pretty little target box. 

This Red One here and Gray One here are the two I'm trying to decide between. 
What is y'alls vote: Red, Gray, or Both?!?! 

This is slowly become one of my new favorite sitcoms. 
Though I'll be completely honest I HATED the pilot episode, I almost didn't give the show a second chance but I'm so so glad I did. 
In my opinion you can just start with episode 2 and pick up from there. You'll totally get the gist of the show, witty humor, and if your mom you'll find someone to relate too. 
My favorite episode to date is defiantly The Nap. 
The entire time during that episode I kept saying "Yes....This is my life" and yet neither of my children are in public school yet. 
Though last weeks episode The Surprise was great, I'm currently trying to figure out how to throw our own Escape Room Party! 

Okay Another Favorite

Trying to find a show that I can watch with David is so so hard. It's nearly impossible. 
However we saw this reality show twice this week and we are hooked. 
People have signed up to become "fugitives" and former CIA, FBIA, Detectives, etc. will be searching for them for 28 days. 
They are only allowed 4 states to travel and $500 dollars. 
Whoever stays hidden the longest or close to the 28 days wins the cash prize at the end. 
I love it to the point that I say things like this during the commercials:
Where would we hide?
Which forest would we hide in?
Do you think we could survive together, would our marriage survive?
Babe they are looking for people for season 2, can I sign us up?
Seriously can we do this for our 6th anniversary this spring?
How mad would you be if I sent in our application?

Yep I'm hooked and I'm dying to be on the show!
For those sweet David has already said I probably couldn't survive. 
He has said things like...
Oh you'll get annoyed, yell and blow our cover.
No you'll find a Nordstrom while we are hiding and get us busted.
You don't even enjoy camping, you'll never survive. 

The Deadline to apply is Feb. 15. Y'all I'm still working on him.. 
I really think it would be a great experience plus hello marriage builder/strengthener (Oh Lord pray for us!)
Fun Fact: I asked if he would do it with is younger brother, he eagerly said that would be fun.

Catch Up Thursday || Snow Weekend 2017

Early this month we had a Snow Weekend!
Y'all these are my favorite types of snow days. 

Why you might ask? 

Oh because that means my husband is guaranteed to be home and can play in the snow with our girls!
Its glorious to see them all play together while I enjoy the warmth of our home and prepared hot chocolate and all the warm clothes/towels for once they came inside! 

I don't know about you but I don't think anything is cuter then seeing your kids all bundled up to go play in the snow. Also shout out to our local Once Upon A Child for having a great variety of snow bibs back in October. So I grabbed a pair for both girls. 

This girl is a Snow Girl through and through. She honestly gets it from her daddy!
She loved it all. Snow Angels. Snowball Fights. Snow man making.
She even offered to help scrap the walkway and the driveway. 
She is our little snow bunny. Its so much fun to watch her in the snow. 
Plus she is the best at snuggling when she comes inside. Her biggest request is hot chocolate and watching White Christmas. The "Snow Scene" is her favorite and she sings it every snow day! 
{Yes its my favorite part of a snow day!}

This babe well she is her mother and is not a huge fan of the snow.
She is all about trying it out for 5-10 minutes. Taking a few cute snow pictures, maybe making a snowball or two. Then she is crying and ready to come inside. Sister girl I am right there with you. 
Though I will say she did go out a second time her Tensley and David, she loved it that time. Maybe its because she was shoveling the walk and driveway as well. I think she hated it the first time because her big sister wanted her to make snow angels as well, so she might have pushed her in the snow .....because that is being helpful after all. HA!

All in all it was a great Snow Day Saturday. 
Plus due to the cold temperatures that lingered around the following days, school was closed for 2 days ... on the 3rd day was delayed so only 2 hours. 
I might have been the mom that jokingly pushed Tensley out of the car and fake cried to her teacher as I drove away. All in good parenting fun! 
These days truly are long and the years are so so short. 
I'm learning to truly appreciate the extra ALL Days together the Lord blesses us with, to be slow to complain about them. However I'm quick to Praise for normalcy in our home!
