What a week of celebrating. We had so much fun this week friends. Between Valentines Day, a trip out-of-town to KC, and a little girl who turns 6 in just 4 short days, we are keeping busy!
I wish I had done a better job of documenting our Valentine festivities this year. I think we celebrated more than we ever have before. But would you believe I didn’t even touch my camera the whole day? I knew the lighting would be terrible for photos and sometimes you just want to live in the moment. Especially since I can’t ever seem to find a happy medium. I either take hundreds of photos or none.
Let’s take a look at this week Friday Favorites!
This week on the blog I shared…
On Thursday we took Emily back to Kansas City for yet another ophthalmologist appointment. She was so excited that part of our trip would include going to IKEA, “The best store in the whole world”. But, she was also pretty devastated over needing to have her eyes dilated, again. However it all ended with smiles and IKEA fro-yo.
We also received another amazing report on her progress. As long as things “go alright” we won’t head back for a year! Being on the other side of the mountain we faced about 10 months ago feels SO good.
Old Navy FTW!
My love for all things striped runs deep. I have been looking at and wanting a striped swing dress for months now but I kept having two problems #1 I wanted to get one cheap, #2 none of them were long enough.
Then Old Navy came to the rescue. I found this dress in a tall for $10! I am SO excited!!! I even ordered it in 2 sizes just to make sure I get one that fits. Does anyone else ever do that? When returns are simple and painless to make, why not make sure you get exactly what you want?!
Abi Mae Update
A quick day trip to K.C. also made for a quick visit to see baby Abigail, her mama, and brothers. I can’t believe she is two weeks old today!
Thank you so much for your sweet thoughts and prayer for her and her precious family. If you could continue remembering them in your prayers we would really appreciate it. We are all hoping and praying this sweet girl gets to come home soon and trusting God that His timing is perfect.
Winter Bucket List Progress
In last Fridays little letters post I mentioned that we were FAILING at our winter bucket list. I knew I had done a terrible job at intentionally marking things off and I was so sure that we had only crossed 1, maybe 2 things off our list. This week I finally got up the nerve to look and I must admit I was shocked…
We have somehow managed to cross off 8 out of 22 items on our list! That is getting close to being halfway done. Now for the dilemma… We aren’t getting any snow this year. No, I am not a weather man. But the weather man for our area has already said too bad, it’s not going to happen this winter. So try as we may the list won’t totally get complete but maybe we will finish up most of it with a little creative thinking.
Have a great weekend friends!
We’ll see you back here on Monday!
