Friday started off with PTO hosting a fiesta for the teachers at school! Boy, did we have lots of fun and TONS of food!! 

The photo booth was a huge hit! Love me some Becky Hawk! 

A few of us PTO ladies!! 

After I got home and the kids settled, I went to Flourish at Church to hear Sophie Hudson AKA Boo Mama speak! 

Love when God shows us a sign! A rainbow right before I turned into the parking lot of church. 

Got to enjoy the evening with Kim!! 

Yes, I totally fangirled!! Love me some Boo Mama! 

I had 2 of her books and bought the 3rd while I was at the Flourish event! 

Of Course, I got her to sign all 3! 

A few of the gifts from the event! 

Saturday morning, I put on my new wedges (psst..they are on sale for $30) (Thank you, Andrea, for sharing these amazing wedges) grabbed my Urban Southern tote filled with my bible, notebook, lipgloss, and phone and set out to hear more of Sophie speak! 

Y'all Sophie was AMAZING!! She talked about her latest book Giddy Up, Eunice! 

The book is about how women need each other. We need older women in our lives to gain knowledge, faith, and to know that we are going to be ok....We need younger women in our lives to teach them what we have learned about life, faith, being a wife, mother...everything the older women taught us. 

In this book, Sophie focuses on 3 sets of women from the bible. 

Mary and Elizabeth
Naomi and Ruth
Lois and Eunice

I would have to say the 2 women that touched my heart the most this weekend was Naomi and Ruth. Sophie touched on 3 bullet points from Ruth 1-3

1. Sometimes we just have to make up our minds to cling. (Ruth 1) 
We have to "cling" to each other through the good but especially in the bad. When it gets tough we CAN'T walk away. We have to FIGHT for each other, cling to one another.

2. Never underestimate the power of a good gleaning. (Ruth 2) 
We as women put so much pressure on ourselves to make everything "perfect" to make everything "Pinterest worthy" Guess what it doesn't have to be perfect. If your taking dinner to a find....guess what we don't have to make a 5-course meal from scratch that we stayed up all night making the night before...No ma'am we just have to drive through the drive through at chick fil a and order double! Bam..dinner is served! 
Sophie's point was "Don't growing weary in trying to be perfect"
And trust me I STRUGGLE with this one! 

3. Our Commitment to walking uphill together is about so much more than us. (Ruth 3 & 4) 
God puts people in our lives for a reason. Sometimes we may never know why. You never know when just a smile, hi, or even a hug will change someone's day. It is not all about us. As one of my all time favorite quotes say...."Throw kindness around like confetti" 
So ladies let's walk this uphill battle called life together but let's do it with kindness.

If you EVER have the opportunity to hear Sophie speak....YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED! She is simply inspiring! 
I can't wait to dive more into Giddy Up, Eunice~ 

Well back to our weekend recap.

Saturday evening, we spent at Ben's aunt Kathy's house enjoying lots of yummy food and LOTS of laughs! 

Sunday morning, my guys hit the golf course. Ella spent the day with Grammy. 
This mama caught up on laundry, Etsy orders, and cleaning. 

Sunday afternoon vibes....
