Friday Favorites

It is the last Friday in July! I feel like the summer that we wait all year for is slipping away. That doesn’t stop me from relishing in back to school shopping, though. This Mama is full force into inventorying the kids clothes and hit up the stores. School doesn’t start until September in these parts so there is still plenty of summer fun to be had. Last weekend was a lazy one in our house so we were hoping to be out and about this weekend. Unfortunately  the weather s calling for this one to be a washout but we are holding out hope for some sunny skies.

While you are here, check out my other posts from the week:
I updated you all on all the little things in my What’s Up Wednesday post.
And I shared my what I use on my phone.

My Fav Meme of the Week

I had to share this. My friend in the IT department of our company has been using this all week and I love it. I have been a solid 9 for the past few days.

Date Night

The kids spent a night at their grandparents this week since I had an early ultrasound. And you know what that means…DATE NIGHT! Date nights are few and far between in these parts so we were really excited to spend some time alone. It really was only four years ago that EVERY NIGHT was kidless but it seems like it could have been a million years ago. We have grown and changed so much as a family. I’m sure, like most couples, we talked mostly about the kids. The first thought for both of us when we started eating was “Oh my gosh! Reid would love this rice!”.

A Break from the Heat

We finally got a little break from the heat this week. T-Ball was much more enjoyable sans sweltering temps. This small break from the heat has already got me thinking about apple picking and pumpkin desserts. I’m going to enjoy the last few weeks of summer but that glimmer of fall was a nice sneak peak.

    I’m an 8 today! We had some sleep issues last night. And by we, I mean my kids. Isn’t it so nice when date night works out? Looks like a good time! Have a happy Friday 😊

    How exciting to have an ultrasound and get to enjoy a date night. That Michael Scott collage is a riot. My kids both LOVE the Office. They watch it over and over on Netflix. Steve Carell is a hoot! Have a great weekend Tara! XOXO

    That meme is hilarious! I never watched the show, but I met my cousin’s dog this week who is named Angela because of the show. Hope the weather stays cool for you! Happy weekend!
