Friday Favorites | 8.21.15

Friday, August 21, 2015

Thanks to Katie and Heather for the link-up!

I have been looking forward to today since Monday, I'm not going to lie.  Work is insanely busy (which is a very good thing) but life outside of work has been the same.  I am hoping to relax and have some fun this weekend since Russell's mom is in town to visit.  

In honor of Friday, here are my #fridayfavorites for the week!

It's Friday

That in itself is a favorite of my week.

It's Payday

Come on, you know you get excited when it's payday too.  Don't act like you don't care!  I celebrate payday like a holiday.

My Bookworm

While I was on a treadmill run earlier this week, Ryan was acting crazy all over the room.  Then for a quiet moment, I don't hear anything so I peer over my treadmill and see him sitting on his toy gym with his night night blankets on his lap, reading a book.  Instant heart melt.

Tailgating Eats

With college football just around the corner (you know I am excited), here are 22 low fuss game day recipes: 22 of the Lowest Fuss Game Day Recipes Out There.  (I am totally making the meatballs and the dips!)

Being Honest About Parenting

I really appreciate the honesty of this article I found: Sometimes Parenting Sucks and It's Time We Were All Honest About It.  Parenting is not easy, and there are days I want to pull my hair out and try again.  It's refreshing to read an honest post about the highs and lows...I can relate!

Throwing fits

I hope you have a great weekend!  We are heading to Arkansas tomorrow for a family day that Russell's company is throwing at one of their mills.  Not many people from his job have gotten to meet Ryan, so I am looking forward to introducing Ryan to everyone (and praying he behaves).  The Governor of Arkansas will be there and giving a speech.  It will probably be right when Ryan throws a scream fit.

Wish us luck!
