Friday Highlights 3.20.15

Hello Friday!

This week has been an unusual one for us. The whole world around us seems to be on spring break, but we are still hitting the books hard. We chose to take our spring break the week before Easter and I am pretty sure we made the right choice. The weather this week has been cold, cloudy and rainy. I really hope April brings some warm sunshine!

{ONE} Spring Is Officially Here


Speaking of warm sunshine

Hello Spring!!!

Just in case you didn’t know TODAY is the first day of spring.

Early next week I plan on sharing this years spring bucket list. It is sure to be packed with loads of outside fun.

{TWO} Shrinking Pants


Fact: When your shorts sit in your closet over fall and winter, they shrink.

It’s true! I swear and most of you have wholeheartedly agreed.

This was the last photo of me being naive to that fact. A few hours later I discovered the mysterious shrinking pants and ever since then I have been on a mission to drop those extra winter pounds I picked up.

{THREE} Roasted Chickpeas Recipe

Now that I am on a healthy eating kick I discovered a favorite new snack.

So yummy, you really should give them a try.


{FOUR} Bad Day X 2 = Ice Cream

You know those days that start out all wrong before you even get out of bed? That was my Wednesday. To make matters worse Marissa joined me in having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. I felt so bad for her I could cry. Instead I taught her something every young girl needs to eventually learn.

Ice cream makes everything better.

Okay, maybe not everything but getting out of the house, having a sweet treat and talking about it sure did seem to help.

Sometimes love looks like taking your 6 year old who had a terrible day out for ice cream and watching her eat it because you are on a “diet”. She is so worth it though. 


{FIVE} Girl Mom Series: Meet Kelly


Yesterday Kelly from Happily Ever Mock guest posted as part of my girl mom series.

  1. Awe, I love Kelly and Hallie!!
    I can't wait to try your roasted chick peas! Yum!
    You are the best momma! A date out for ice cream and talking about her troubles sounds like the perfect way to make her feel loved! I really do think ice cream fixes everything 😉
    Happy Spring! Sending warm weather vibes your way!!

  2. I bet Marissa loved the one on one time with you and of course loved the ice cream! You are such a good mom!
    So crazy everyone is on spring break this week. While I don't get a week off, the school I work at is on break the week before Easter and I always thought that made the most sense.
    Hope you guys have a good weekend!

  3. Hehe, darn those shorts! I am glad I did it was just the motivation I needed to make sure they actually fit when I want to wear them. Hooray!

    Happy almost Friday!

  4. Thanks for linking up at the TGIF Blog & Instagram hop! I agree ice-cream is perfect for a rough day and shorts shrink during winters! I am featuring your recipe on this weeks TGIF hop!
