oh girls, i'm on top of it this week!
two consecutive weeks of insta-friday's!

this past week was a busy week on instagram.
heck, it was just a busy week!

monday started the first full week of school and it was a BIG DAY for our little family. {more on that later. in a different post.}
wednesday i had a volunteer meeting at the elementary school.
i also went and had lunch with jett.
i'm telling you, if you can go up to the school and eat lunch in the cafeteria with your child DO IT!
not only will your child feel like a rock star...the children in his class will think you are amazing.
and they'll ask you a million questions.
and you'll love every minute of it.
true story.
thursday i enrolled mckinley in her first dance class.
i can not wait to see her in her teeny tutu and ballet slippers, hear her tap-tap-tap in her tap shoes, and roll frontwards and backwards during her tumbling class!!!

just reading that made you tired, huh?

grab a latte and have a seat...i've got bunches of photos to share.

Love. Wish I wasn't wearing navy blue right now. Thank you @rellasbellas!
{got me some new earrings from @rellasbellas on etsy. love the chevron. love them. i've already worn them twice!}

Picking the kiddos up from grandpa and @nanibear51's house. #widn

Quietly playing. #preschoolactivity
{remember that craft i made a few weeks ago from paint sample cards? mckinley loves it still. she calls it her homework.}

Not just for preschoolers. Jonah had fun matching too!
{jonah even enjoys it...even though it isn't much of a challenge for him.}

Happy Sunday!

McKinley made a fashion statement at church this morning. #whoskidisthis? #whoareherparents?
{mckinley seriously wore these shoes to church on sunday. for real. #whoareherparents}

Missing Ft Campbell HARD this morning! @kba143 @artlover030 @jenkozal {and Jamie, my Twitter stalker. ☺}
{i was missing my fort campbell friends HARD on tuesday. like ugly crying while driving the kids to school missing them.}

Yay or nay on rose placement? {@allorahandmade}
{i need more @allorahandmade in my life.}

Love it all! Thank you, #birchbox!
{birchbox was GOOD this month!}

My #mugswap gift to my partner. Is it you?
{i signed up for a mug swap with @acuppakim. this is my gift to my partner. i hope she likes it. the mug is from target and i made the mug rug!}

SUPER excited to write a letter and use my new stamps!!! #pixar #disney
{i've been asking for these stamps at my post office for weeks. they were finally there the other day when i went in.}

First stamp used. Going to someone special.
{sending woody and jessie off to MN right away.}

Good morning from me and my crazy bunch!

#widn...studying His word. Do you follow the #shereadstruth blog and studies? Life changing for me. I need someone to tell me how to do things. It's how I learn. This blog does just that with Bible study. ❤ What are YOU doing this morning, @angdoran79 @ha
{really trying to do more of this. daily. you can follow along with me, too. i'm following she reads truth.}

just like every week, i'm linking up with jeannett over at life rearranged.

I'm loving the mixed up shoes! I did that once it high school... on accident... it is not cute when you are 17:) I learned that you should never get dressed while standing in a dark closet.

I'm sorry you were missing your friends this week. I hope the weekend is better:)

i almost bought that very same mug for the mug swap! but i'm still searching for the "perfect" mug. ha! oh, and i totally think i "liked" your last #shereadstruth photo on instagram a few days ago when i was looking through the feed. the chevron pattern definitely stood out among the rest.

Candace said...

I love that mug... Definitely going on my target list! You did a great job on the mug rug too! I've been wanting to follow along with she reads truth... I think it will help me stay in the word daily. Have a great weekend!
