Friday Faves: My Mom & other stuff (not as wonderful as her)

March 4, 2016
Hip hip happy Friday!

I opened my eyes this morning thinking it was Saturday, then wondered why Angelo was waking me up so early, then realized it was actually Friday and I had to get up AND get the kids up and out the door for school.  That’s all OK because it’s Friday! 🙂

In good ol’ Friday fashion I’m here to give you  my favorite things this week.
If you’ve been in love with something this week, let me know in the comments! I always love to hear about others Friday faves and whats been rocking people’s boats! 🙂

My beautiful mother

My mom’s birthday is this weekend! I truly can’t express enough love for her, she is everything a mother should be and I only hope to be half the mother that she is to me. She expresses nothing but love, hope, faith, kindness, and patience. She is slow to anger and abounding in love! My mom is a true angel. She’s an incredible mother and extraordinary grammy! She deserves way more than one day of celebration.

Facebook Memories

These aren’t always good (hello embarrassing 21st birthday pictures), but for the past couple weeks they’ve been great because most of them are of the past Gasparilla races. If there’s one race anyone should do, at least once, it’s the Gasparilla Distance Classic! You currently have
350 days to train for next years race. 😉

Every pregnancy is different and you shouldn’t compare yourself to others. Comparison is the thief of joy!

This weekend is packed solid for us! Birthday parties, races, baby showers, church…fun!
I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe weekend!

Simple Thanksgiving Tablescapes

Simple Thanksgiving Tablescapes

While my house may scream “It’s Christmas” by mid-November, I always have a table or two dedicated to Thanksgiving. I want the table to be simple, welcoming, and just as pretty as the Thanksgiving foods on it. I don’t use the traditional Thanksgiving colors, as I like...

All the Details on our Kitchen Remodel

I want to start off and let you know I had to google what the difference between a ‘remodel’ and ‘renovation’ is for this post. A remodel is making changes to the structure, while a renovation is more like a restoration. Now that we’re all in the know on that, I’m...
