With such a busy week this week, Friday sure did sneak up on me. Iâ€™m thrilled for this weekend. We have some holiday spirit happening this evening, a football filled afternoon/evening tomorrow (Goooooo Dawgs!), and then the typical family filled day with church and the return of our weekly small group on Sunday. This weekend will be a good one, I just know it. How about you? Any fun plans?
Before I get to the weekend I want to recap some of the moments of the week so far. Time for Scenes from the Week! You know. Things besides seeing Beauty and the Beast on Broadway.
Makenzie received this princess PlayDoh castle for her birthday and we finally opened it up recently. I now officially know why my mother used to cringe when we asked to play with our PlayDoh toys.Plus, that stuff gets painful when it falls on the floor, dries, and you accidentally step on it hours later. The price we pay for our kids to have fun with goop.
Then they repay us by doing things like this:
That would be my bedroom doorknob, locked. From the outside by my sweet, sweet daughter who thought it would be fun to lock and shut our door before returning to bed on her naptime bathroom break. I would love to get in her head and see the thought process of toddlers sometime. And the thought process of the people who lived in this house before us and used a key lock for their bedroom doorknob. That was some fun figuring out how to break into your own bedroom.
Good thing sheâ€™s cute.
And pretty much the center of my world.
In other news, I picked up a few new things for the week because I seemed to run out of some of my favorites all at the same time.
I picked up a new journal I needed for my morning devotional time.
I cannot wait to fill it up with prayers and reflections from my daily morning Bible study. Writing is so therapeutic for me. Plus, it will go quite well alongside one of my favorite new travel coffee mugs.
As I said on Instagram, I like my coffee like I like my God â€“ strong.
While out and about recently, I also had to stock up on the following:
I can never seem to avoid the soap sale at Bath and Body Works. I just love that stuff!
Probably for the same reason I can never seem to go into Target and come out with just the items on my list. When I went this week, Justinâ€™s Maple Almond Butter happened to fall into my cart.
I justify this jar that costs gold on the fact that I cannot find another cheap mega jar of Maranatha almond butter at Samâ€™s Club. Justinâ€™s is better anyway. I canâ€™t wait to get my hands on some vanilla someday.
Now, for a motivational thought to carry you into the weekend. The weekend still counts and we can often lose that determination we started with on Monday. Have fun, but stay balanced and remember that your body doesnâ€™t stop working at 5pm on a Fridayâ€¦so you shouldnâ€™t stop treating it right. #theweekendcounts
Have a healthy, happy weekend friends!
