Friday Favorites

 Hey friends. We made it to Friday. How was your week? We had a great week with lots of friends and sunshine, then much needed rain and time to catch up on everything I didn't get done because we had between 6 to 10 kids everyday. I love that our house has become the hangout house the last week. I also love the slow days that it is just Anna and me just decompressing from the craziness. 

Time for some Friday Favorites with these lovely ladies: Erika, and Andrea.

Family night with our church at the Cleveland Monsters hockey game. It was Anna's first hockey game and our first family time in a while. We had a great time even though the Monster's lost. 

Anna talked Ella into getting her face painted. 

This was the highlight of the night for Anna, getting her face painted with a Monster that isn't scary. She also got a tattoo that is still on her arm a week later because she won't let me scrub it off.

Ella had gift cards and money burning a whole in her pocket that she got from her birthday last October and Christmas. We spent some mother daughter time running amuck at different stores. 


A Monday with 70 degree temps calls for inviting all the neighbors over (which really means two families) for hot dogs over the fire, a few drinks, and the kids running wild and jumping on the trampoline. 

Even with all the negativity towards trampolines this has been one of the best investments.

Another 70 degrees day we are outside enjoying the trampoline. I had the girl I watch a few days a week, then ended up watching my niece for the day also because of a death in the family. They 3 of them got along so well. 

While they played I enjoyed the sun and got some reading done. I tempted putting on shorts, then the clouds rolled in, it stormed, and the temps dropped. 

They also enjoyed digging in the dirt and bringing me worms.

I got a new purse that I love and it fits everything in it and then some. The top also zips closed and it comes with a crossbody strap also. Perfect to take everything and anything I need for mom life. 

Seriously my laptop fits in it, the bottom strap is to hook it to a suitcase. 

I did say everything will fit. The inside is waterproof and has two cupholders that fit 40oz tumblers. It is a large Michelle bag in blush from Glass Ladder co.

I got my nails filled this week. I asked Anna what color I should get. She picked blue. I threw in some green to mix it up with St. Patrick's day and Easter. 

Then she wanted hers painted too. She picked purple, blue and pink. She saw me taking a picture and wanted a picture too. 

In case you missed, here's a quick look at the blog this week:

  1. Sounds like it was a fun week! We had rain almost all week but finally see the sunshine this morning. What a fun family night you had. My kids love getting their face painted. Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. What a fun week to spend with family and friends! So fun to be with kids at such a fun age. Have a good weekend!

  3. That is wonderful that your house is a hangout for the kids.
    The hockey game sounds like a lot of fun and what a lovely evening around the fire.

  4. That does sound like a houseful; but lots of fun. That bag is huge! But I love that it's waterproof and holds tumblers inside.
