Here's a sneak at our week from my phone's perspective... 

On Sunday we introduced the kids to the greatest sport ever played. Radley did a reading challenge at school and scored two free tickets so we bought three more so we could all go together. The girls enjoyed the popcorn, I enjoyed the game and Rad and Ryan enjoyed watching me get angry at the LACK OF OFFENSIVE REBOUNDS the Aggies managed. They finally decided to really play and managed a win and started the week ranked at #5! 


And while basketball may be the greatest sport, FNL is definitely the greatest the sports show of all time so I started watching it again during a long day of work on Sunday. (Yes, Sunday). I have managed to finish Season 1 in 4 days. Oops. 

Radley and I finally finished book 1 of Harry Potter and I have to admit that I loved it so much more than I thought I would. Favorite line: 

"He didn't realize that love as powerful as your mother's for you leaves its own mark." - Dumbledore 

Rad thought it was funny that I started tearing up at the end, but he definitely wasn't surprised. "Mom, you cry at everything." 

Also. Let's discuss how much a like we look in this picture. 

It had been way too long since I'd seen this girl. If you don't read Holly you are missing out some amazing inspiration to serve others daily, to live life with joy and to celebrate the extra ordinary. She is doing a series on the Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up based on Marie Kondo's book and she is rocking this process. I need her to go ahead and post the after pictures of her closet. Seriously, make her part of your daily reading!

I also officially mastered the Whole30 breakfast. Recipe soon.

A HUGE highlight for my week was letting this girl have a play date with her bestie, Macy. All day long it's Macy this, Macy that. Me and Macy...Macy and Me... basically adorable come to life. 

She was counting down the days to early release when Macy got to come home with us and that morning of all things, we pulled up right behind them in the carpool line. They squealed and ran up to each other like they hadn't seen each other in years and proceed to walk in to school HOLDING HANDS. And I died right there. 

I drove away with happy tears because my girl was happy. And I prayed a prayer that she was loved by her friends as much as I have been loved by mine. 

And while this hasn't happened yet... Shelly and I are excited about watching our series grow this year. We know that it may not be the easiest to come up with things to talk about so we came up with some prompts for different women you can highlight in Queen Bees. We'd love you to join us!

And that's us in an instant!

Linking up with AndreaErika, and Narci....Go check out other people's favs!
