Hello, Friday!

Happy Friday!! For whatever strange reason this week has just seemed to drag by. Tate has a track meet tonight so after work B and I are going to workout (yes, she loves to workout with me), eat some yummy but not good for me Chinese food, watch movies and maybe squeeze in a test or two. Big plans, y'all, big plans! I don't have many favorites this Friday so lets get right to them.

ONE // First things first, Happy Birthday to my sister! Stormi I wish I could be there to celebrate with you but we can make it up another weekend! I know today is a tough one for you but I do hope you do go out and enjoy it. As a birthday gift to her, everybody keep her and her best friend in your thoughts and prayers. Her best friends sister was involved in a tragic accident and sadly didn't make it and they need all the prayers they can get!

TWO // Speaking of prayers, the other night when I was getting Brylee in bed and it was time to say our bedtime prayers she busts out with The Pledge of Allegiance followed by the Star Spangled Banner and then prayed her sweet little heart out. I mean she prayed about the trees, the dogs, the sticks, the pledge, her school, softball.. anything that's been going on in our life lately, yeah it was on that prayer list. What can I say, the girl loves life, the USA and Jesus. :) Those are some of my favorites too, sweet Brylee. I posted this video a few weeks ago but it's just too good to not share again!

THREE //  I've said it before and I'll say it again - Target is killing it right now! I had a "quick" trip there the other day and got way more than I intended to. Doesn't that always happen though? Haha. I picked up this super cute bag that I'm using to carry around all my school stuff in, this floral shirt, and two cold shoulder tops (black and turquoise). I loved my DV sandals so much that I got another pair in black! All of this will be on repeat this spring and summer! Although I do shop at Walmart also, I thought this was too funny!

FOUR //  Have y'all tried my Coffee Rubbed Tacos yet? We had them again this week. They are seriously just so good!

FIVE // I finished Sean Lowe's book. That probably took me a total of 2 days. I plan on doing a book review soon, but his is definitely one of my favorites!

SIX //  A few weeks ago Biana posted this little tip to where you can add a direct link to your page on a comment. I did it and for WEEKS have been commenting with it thinking it was working. Hey, it looked like a link so I never even checked it. Low and behold the link wasn't going directly to my website; instead it was linking to an unknown page on that blog. After searching and searching for hours I figured it out. When I copied and pasted it into my word doc. the quotations changed - something I would have never thought to check! So, just an FYI for those of you that may have tried and couldn't get it to work, check the quotation marks! Hope that helps some of you.  Here is the code if you need it - just remember to check the quotes! :)

SEVEN // I finally got around to posting my April to do's. I can do everything on that list. I can!

EIGHT // So apparently when this actually happened (almost a year ago) I never saw it! A friend shared it on facebook and I think it's absolutely hilarious! I love Tom Hanks.

 I hope y'all have the best Friday! Enjoy your weekend. :)

Linking up with my favorite Friday gals.

  2. So sorry about Stormi's friend. Such a hard thing to grasp at any age but especially at a young age. I went a little crazy on the Target shoes and have had to restrain myself from buying bags!! I had not seen the lace sleeve top yet. Have a super weekend!
