Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!!!  It's pure and utter chaos over here today because we're moving!  I don't know about you guys, but I don't mind the packing near as much as the UNPACKING!!  UGH!  Today Tab and I are assisting the moving crew with everything that is not a super breakable lamp or picture.  It's going to be HOT and so much fun.  hahaha!  #beingsarcastic

The fun part about today is I'm teaming up with my girls, Andrea and Narci, to share some Friday Favorites!


The kiddos and I hit up the pool this week on Monday and Wednesday.  The pool in the summer is our FAVORITE!  This cute guy talked me into ice cream both days.  Summer days are just better with a cold treat, right?


I think Sheaffer summed this guy up the best one day this week by this..."Nixon is like a frat boy in a five-year-old body".  The perfect way to describe Nixon.  hahaha!!  FAVORITE statement of the week!  By that she meant, he prefers being the life of the party, is always down for a good time, and sometimes has some CRAZY ideas.  He's also crazy competitive.  We're still working on not being a sore loser.  It literally eats him alive because he hates losing!!!  This week we played "P-I-G" family-edition.  I caught Nix mid-shot.


We got the keys to the new house earlier this week and headed straight over to check it out.  Our new backyard is going to be one of my FAVORITE places.   

I've gotten a couple requests for home tours. Yes, I'll for sure be sharing our new space.  :)
We're still in McKinney just a different neighborhood.  Super close to our old house.  

One of my FAVORITE people shared her crazy over on the blog yesterday.  If you missed it, you can check it out here.


These three have found their new FAVORITE space.  The pool!!  Our old house had a pool too, but our backyard was really shaded so even in Texas it stayed pretty chilly until the middle of July.  


On Monday, Andrea and I will be sharing our Favorite Summer Shoes!  You should join us for our link-up!

It's kind of short and sweet today, ladies!!  Happy Weekend!!

We moved two years ago which is crazy soon to some people but not so soon to others. We had four bedrooms. Bowen's room was downstairs right off the front entryway-it could have been bedroom or an office. It worked as a nursery so well but now that he's getting older, it's not super ideal. We've been looking for a while. After lots of prayer, we felt like we should move. God worked it out perfectly-the sell of our house, purchase, the timing. We're really excited about it! So to answer your question-no, you're not crazy! :)

Erika Slaughter said...

Can you tell me that every day for the next two weeks? Hahaha!

Jennifer Cannon said...

Hey, whatever is in God's will for your life is perfect! Congratulations!
