Happy Friday!! Join us to share your Friday Favorites. Andrea, Narci, and I do it every week and we'd love for you to join us!
This was our first full week of summer and we have soaked up every single minute!! We've had a BIG first week.
This was our last selfie in front of our house as the homeowners. After much prayer, we decided to sell our home. We are supposed to move later this month. I know anything can happen until we officially close on the new one. So we're praying for it all to go smoothly. If not, God has a plan AND apartment living might be involved. :) Doing life and making big adult decisions can be scary at times, but doing it with my FAVORITE guy makes it all more fun!
All three kiddos have had swim lessons with their FAVORITE swim instructor, Mrs. Sally! There was a little fussing on Bowen's part, but I was super impressed with him! He's doing great!
Reapplying sunscreen at the pool is not my FAVORITE! The Slaughters (all five of us) have super light skin and we burn! If we're at the pool for three hours, then I need to apply sunscreen a LOT during that time. The first application is always no big deal, but getting kids to dry off to apply sunscreen is no one's favorite moment. :( By application number three yesterday, I agreed they could swim with white faces!
This kid does not get the competitive gene from me. #hegetsitfromhisdad
He is super competitive and works so hard when he puts his mind to something. He is determined to never lose a race around the track to his sister or brother. His determination is my FAVORITE!
My new FAVORITE perfume! Bond No. 9 The Hamptons...I found the best deal on Amazon. A couple Saturdays ago we went to the gym and then out to lunch. I was a sweaty mess from the gym. I saw a sweet friend and went over to say hi. She hugged me and my sweaty self and until I showered I smelled divine. I immediately asked her what perfume she was wearing. If you're in need of a light summery scent...this is what you need.
The kiddos and I ran errands yesterday before their last swim lesson. We had a couple things to do at the mall, so in between errands we hit up the play area. Bowen ran over to this spot and asked to have his picture taken with the cowboy. Oh my! Everything about this picture is a FAVORITE....Ebby Lee trying to be silly, Nixon trying to cover up the cowboy with his body just because, and Bowen smiling so big.
Getting to watch them on the last day of swim lessons is my FAVORITE!
The big kids were supposed to be doing "pencils" into the water to grab diving sticks off the bottom.
Check this kid out! He came a long way in only four days. He started out Monday just blowing bubbles in the water and by yesterday he was "jumping" off the board.
One of my FAVORITE things arrived in the mail yesterday....a new ERIN CONDREN PLANNER!! Last year was my first year to get one and I don't know how I lived without it all my life. I LOVE my planner!
This year I'm trying something new and my pages run horizontally instead of vertically. I realize now that I should have taken a picture for you! So sorry! I found this one online...
Typically the lifeplanners have the weekly layout in a vertical format. I'm shaking it up this year and trying the horizontal format. I can't wait to get started!! Seriously for the longest time I didn't keep up with a planner, but I'd forget things ALL THE TIME! I finally bit the bullet and purchased an Erin Condren planner and I've never looked back. Trust me. You'll love it!
