So excited that we have finally made it to Friday.  I am ready for a nice and relaxing Mother’s Day weekend with my family.   Today I am sharing a few of my favorites from this week.  I hope you enjoy them 🙂

Mother’s Day Ideas…

I love Mother’s Day Weekend!!  I always look forward to just spending some quality time with Danny and the girls.  Tuesday I linked up with The Queen in Between and posted about my favorite Mother’s Day present.  I can’t wait to see what Danny and the girls get me this year.  I am sure he has already purchased my present (because is he is a great husband) but here are a few things that I have on my wishlist…

However since we have been married for almost 13 years a few of our appliances are on their last leg so for practical purposes I would like one of these two items…

Favorite Quote…

One of my friends posted this quote earlier this week from Lysa TerKeurst and it went perfectly with my post from yesterday about Genuine Friendship and Mean Girls.  I have wanted to share that post for almost a year but I had struggled with what exactly I wanted to say and how people would respond.  However, after seeing everyone’s responses yesterday I am so glad I finished the post.  So please go check it out, it is definitely a must read.

Some of my favorite moments from this week…

Danny had work conference in downtown Dallas so the girls and I got to cruise around in the Jeep.  We I thought we were so cool.  🙂

Wednesday morning I joined Kate’s field trip to the Sci-Tech Discovery Center in Frisco.

They had a lot of fun learning through all the hands-on discovery exhibits.

 Craft time…

I have decided to jump on the Chalk Paint bandwagon.  I have read several blog post about painting with chalk paint and so I decided to just bite the bullet and start painting our entry table. (Liz @J for Joiner and Emily @ Simply A Rough Draft – thank you girls for the inspiration).  I have only done one coat but, fingers crossed, I can finish the project this weekend. Once I am finished, I will do a post with before and after pictures.  Hopefully the after picture will not be me throwing the entry table in the dump because I ruined it!!!

What we have going on this weekend…

Tonight Danny and I finally get to go on a much needed date night!!!  It has been almost 2 months since Danny and I had a dinner without our kids.  Don’t get me wrong, I love our girls, but it so important to have some alone time with just Danny.  I use the term “alone” loosely, because we are joining three other couples and having a nice dinner at Rick’s Chophouse in Downtown McKinney.

We will be playing our last two soccer games of the season tomorrow.  I love watching the girls, but I am so ready to have nothing to do on Saturdays.

Other than our date night and soccer games, my weekend will be all about these girls…because they are the reason I am a mom.

    I have so much to say about this post…where do I start??? First off, I LOVE that pink purse! It’s fun and springy and could become a pop of color in so many neutral outfits. Fingers crossed you get that! Second, you girls are too cute in that jeep! Third, I think your chalk paint project looks great already. If you don’t like it in the end, don’t throw it away….just sand it down and start again. That’s the beauty of chalk paint, you can’t mess it up. Last, but not least; Rick’s! I hope you guys have a blast tonight. We LOVE Rick’s! We actually have a gift card from Christmas that I just now remembered. Yikes! I need to plan a date night soon. Enjoy your Mother’s Day weekend!
