Friday Favorites | Sunshine Award

Happy Friday Friends! How is it Friday again already? I swear this week flew by?? I hope to enjoy some downtime this weekend because we have been on the go here this week.

As usual, I am sharing a few of our FAVORITES from this week.

Monday started off with serving the teachers and staff at Ella's school breakfast because we celebrated Teacher Appreciation week early since we have such a late spring break. We test and then have spring break so we like to let them enjoy treats in the long stretch. 

Monday afternoon, I went to see a PT about my knee. She said I messed up my meniscus but she seems to think she can fix me right up with a few PT sessions.

Tuesday morning both kids had Orthodontist appointments. Ian is scheduled to get his braces off on April 30th. He is so excited!! 

Tuesday afternoon, the PTO ladies served the teachers Nachos. This is my new favorite cheese dip. 

Tuesday afternoon this sweet girl showed off her new moves from her mini dance camp. 

Wednesday I was feeling very sassy and busted out the white jeans for the FIRST DAY OF SPRING.

It's ok I asked for forgiveness in small group that morning. 😉

Wednesday on the blog I shared a few of my recent pins on Pinterest and how I recreated them.

I think my planner dreams have FINALLY came true. I ordered the Erin Condren Petite Planners. 

I ordered the Champagne Folio. I know y'all are thinking she ordered ANOTHER planner #sorrynotsorry

Then I ordered the Daily Planners. They are in 4 Volumes. January-March, April-June, July-September, October-December. 

Here is a look on the inside. 

I love my Life Planner but I just didn't have enough room to write my daily to do list so these Petite Planners solved that problem. I plan to leave my Life Planner on our counter kinda like our command center and use the Daily Petite planner for on the go. It is just so perfect and I am so excited to start using it April 1st. I will keep y'all posted.

Wednesday, Ella came home with her new art creation which is a new FAVORITE. We decided to name her Peggy the paper clip holder. She is perfect on my desk. 

Yesterday, I used a weigh in "pass" because I have just been feeling so discouraged on the scale. I know I am lifting weights again and it is to be expected to gain. I also know I am feeling great, my clothes are fitting great. I just needed to skip this week and that's ok. So I was looking through old pictures to help me remember my progress.

I posted this picture yesterday.

On the left-2014; On the right- 2019

I'm about 20 pounds lighter and a whole heck of a lot more confident on the right.

Last Friday, my sweet blogger friend Chrissy from Granola and Grace shared the Sunshine Award with My Glittery Heart along with some other AMAZING bloggers. So honored! Thank you Chrissy for the love and support.

So let me answer these questions for y'all...

Where did you grow up?

I was born and raised in Georgia. Ben and I along with our 2 kiddos and 2 pups now live about 25 minutes from Athens. #godawgs

Why do you blog?

The main reason I started blogging was to keep an online scrapbook for our family but it has turned into so much more than that.

Where do you find your daily or weekly blog inspiration?

From other amazing blogger friends. I use my monthly calendar in my Life Planner to plan out post for each month and have a running list of ideas in the back of my planner.

What's your favorite healthy food?

Apple Nachos. (I plan to share this recipe soon)

What's your biggest blog struggle? For example: finding time to comment on other blogs, social media, technical issues, etc.

I would have to say social media. I sometimes find myself obsessing with the number of followers. IG drives me crazy half the time.

What are your most recently learned blogger tips?

Stay true to yourself. 

Now I get to nominate a few bloggers of my choosing. However, please do not feel any pressure to write a post. 

Lindsay from Lindsay's Sweet World. 
Johannah from The Sirois Family
Tanya from The Other Side of the Road 
Whitney from Polka Dot Place 
Justine from Full Hands Full Heart 

I hope everyone has a FANTASTIC weekend.

Linking up with Andrea and Whitney
