Friday, I'm in ♥

Hello 3 day weekend! Is anyone else as excited for it and ready for it as me? I've decided that when you have kids, you should get a paid summer vacation from work so that you can stay at home and take care of them! I think you guys need to get to writing your congressman and lets get this thing sorted out!

We have a little something up our sleeve this weekend. A few weeks back I found us a fantastic cabin in Beavers Bend, Oklahoma and reserved it. So, Saturday we are surprising the kids and telling them to 'pack up' and we are going to head out Sunday morning for the 2 hour drive and stay the night. My parents are coming along and we have a 2 bedroom cabin, with a hot tub, Direct TV and a full kitchen - my idea of camping. We are going to take them to Beavers Bend State Park and do some fishing, hiking and swimming. David and the kids have never been to Beavers Bend, so I'm excited for us to go on a little adventure together!

Now, on to some of my favorites this week. I don't know what it was about this week, but I had a ton of stuff that I marked to share. So, be forewarned:

  • This post from Pussycat Vintage on her son growing up was a very honest and heart felt read. I don't know what it's like to see your kiddos go from being your baby to a teen - I got the majority of mine during their teen years. But I can say she's definitely right when she says that it won't be easy!
  • This linkup is happening on Tuesday and I'm in! I don't do to many linkups, but this is one I am excited about.
  • Alycia's life list over at The Curious Pug. What do you want to do in your lifetime?
  • These blog post ideas from Kam at Campfire Chic. I don't like anyone telling me what I should or shouldn't put on my blog, but I always love a good list of blog prompts or post ideas! We all get bogged down from time to time.
  • I've decided this week I am buying me some washi tape to play around with. I'm going to try one of these tutorials and tap into some of my creative that has to be hiding in there somewhere!
What are you loving this week? Everyone have a fabulous 3 day weekend and I'll see you back here on Tuesday! I'm taking a well deserved break!


  1. So many great things to read and check out, I definitely have to try those washi tape ideas too!
