My Favorite Things on Friday

friday favorite things | finding joy

I'm linking up with Rachel today for a list of my favorite things. I haven't done this in a while and thought it would be kind of nice since today is the last "free" Friday before school starts back on Monday.

1} Kelsie is finally thrilled about going to school on Monday. I'm hoping it's a great start for this year!
2.} Talks with my sister-n-law mean more than she'll ever know. Last night I was stressing about everything. I called her and we talked until the battery on my phone was almost dead. I needed that talk. When we got off the phone I felt so much better.

3} Kayla and I had some nice one on one time last night. It might have been birthday shopping and grocery shopping but it was nice to spend time with just her. She's growing up so fast and I don't want to miss any opportunities in this critical age frame where we need to have talks from time to time. I want to give her that chance. Even if it's just us looking at shredded cheese in Publix. =-)

4} We're having Kelsie's 6th birthday party on Sunday. She has requested only one particular birthday item and that was a new shopping cart for her babies when she pretend grocery shops. No problem! Pretty soon she'll be asking for iPods and video games.

5} I am still relishing on our trip last Sunday to the East. We had a great time and I got some great shots. I am going to be editing some this week to update some frames around the house. I can't wait to go on our next day trip!

Yeah for Kelsie being excited...Caleb has been nervous. SO glad about your SIL...that is so special. I'm happy that you had someone to talk to and to help you feel better. I love that picture of Miss Kayla. She is growing so that you all had time together. How fun about your trip to the East and that it's still giving you the warm and fuzzies :)

oh, I love long talks that help things seem better and life seem less stressful... those are the best conversations!

Love those long talks. I've drained my phone battery many times having talks with sweet friends of mine.

And those kids of ours? Sigh. You're right. They just keep on growing -- savor the time with them.

Blessings and thank you for linking up!
