Whats up, Weekend? 1•11•19

Oh Happy Day!  AKA FRIDAY!  You guys! I woke up on Wednesday morning 100% sure it was Friday.  That day and Thursday were the longest two days ever!


Today I'm linking up with Lindsay from The Flynnigans, Charlotte from My Pixie Blog and Beth from Coffee until Cocktails.  Every Friday we share all the things that we are happy, grateful and thankful for!  Stop on over and see what everyone else is sharing today! Here is my list for this week!


Throwing stuff out.  I am loving this Declutter Challenge! Today is make up and beauty supplies, which should take all of 10 minutes because its only like 3 things that I actually use and the rest can all get tossed!  I'm makeup challenged!

Having David home for the weekends again!  This makes my heart so happy! Not having to rush though errands and being able to hang out again on Sunday nights...ahhh... love it!

Alex and his after school series of random facts and silly jokes. He has read every book he owns, more than ones and discovered ebooks.  So now everyday he comes home, gets a snack and then bombards me with jokes and facts.

All the early afternoon sleeps.  Nope, I can't even call them naps anymore because they are solid! I haven't slept great at night, but Ill take what I can get!

The little bursts of energy that have gotten me though this week!  Even found the energy to mow the back.  Well almost all of it, anyways.  Now about those Christmas lights...

Hearing the boys say things like "YES! You made cabbage for dinner!" and "If you want to make sweet potatoes, then make them!  We will eat what you give us!"  I am blessed with non picky eaters and I am ever so thankful for that.

Taking a few minutes at night to breathe, clearing my mind and just feeling happy.  Sometimes life seem so completely upside down but Ill be damned if I am not ridiculously happy right now. A small part of me is always waiting for the other shoe to drop but its only just a small part now and easily shooed away!

When your friend knows you are nauseous and brings you some Ginger ale.  Its the little things you guys!  Surround yourself with people who love you as much as you love them!


Planning a few kid free mini trips.  Ive got so many ideas that I'm going to have to organize them and go with the top 3 first.

Sharing my story.  If you follow me on IG you might have seen some of my Chronically Inspiring Challenge shares.  I forgot how much I love sharing that part of me.  It's almost like I was holding my breath because I know that it makes some people feel uncomfortable.  But everyone has been super supportive and kind and thats been really nice!

There is one more thing that has me smiling so big my face feels like its going to crack open.


Alex is turning 10 tomorrow!  TEN!  We are out of single digits!  I'm so happy and yet sad all at the same time.  I really am excited to see what the 10s are like for him.  Hopefully he will stay his super low key laid back self and it will be a smooth year!  A mom can dream!

So this weekend, we are celebrating Alex birthday here at home.  We aren't birthday party people, so it will just be a few of us here.  Alex has requested a face cake.  If you don't know what that is, just you wait!  There will be some food and football too!  And then Sunday will be for relaxing and who knows what else.  I really miss our trips to the park and fresh air, but this cold weather has got to go first.

What have you got planned for the weekend?  Anything fun?  Whatever it is you end up doing I hope it makes you happy!  Happy Friday Everyone!
