Friday Favorites

Hello Weekend - I'm so happy to see you @ While I'm Waiting...
Happy Friday!  What should have been a short week since we started it with a holiday has turned into, well, a week that seemed to drag by.  Mike and the kids were home on Monday but Holden wasn't feeling well.  She ended up staying home from school on Tuesday and Wednesday but I think she's finally on the mend.  All these yuckies going around need to be gone!  Praying the rest of our crew can stay healthy!

So many fun - and completely random! - things I want to share with you today! Here are just a few of my FAVORITES from this past week!!!

Royally Waiting...{a NEW link-up!}

Well, hello there!  How have you been?!  I sure have missed this little space but life has been coming at us from every direction and I knew something had to give - sadly, it was my little corner of the blog-osphere. #insertsadface But, after a few weeks of adjustment of going back to work, Mike wrapping up his daily commute, moving out of our home for a re-model, and moving into a patio home for the time being...  I think I can finally give some much needed attention to my blog and I couldn't be more excited!

Well, actually I CAN be more excited because today Katy, Shelly, and I are launching a new link-up called Royally Waiting... and we would LOVE for you to join us!  It will be a weekly link-up where you can share a little peek into your week.  We'll give you a few prompts in case you can't think of anything to share but feel free to think outside the box!  Think What's Up Wednesday meets a weekly version of Currently.  We can't wait to share what's going on with us but we really look forward to seeing what's going on in your world!  Be sure and link up with us below!!!

a day in the life - my first day back at work

It's been over seven years since I've worked outside our house.  SEVEN!  That's a long time in the work world and, well, I'm definitely out of practice!  I thought it would be fun to do a day-in-the-life post about my first day back as a working mom!

My day started early.  Anyone that knows me knows I am NOT a morning person.  I laid in bed for 10 minutes before finally getting up!  (note to self - the anxiety I felt the whole drive to work wasn't worth the extra tenminutes!)

Never has the name of my blog been more on pointe! It's been months since I consistently blogged. I've been waiting... waiting... and waiting... Well, not exactly!  A lot of life behind the blog has happened over the last few months.  I was juggling a bunch of different balls and knew that something had to give. Sadly, blogging was the obvious choice.  Sometimes you just have to take a step back, regroup, and try again later.

Weekend Recap - better late than never!

Tis the season for all the extra performances, Christmas parties, and extra holiday cheer! I'm a few days late posting pics from our weekend but here they are anyway!  Just a peek into our little slice of crazy!

 Waldo returned on December 1st and the girls were crazy excited to have him back!  On Friday morning we found him just hanging out on our mirror!

Weekend recap - tis the season edition!

It's crazy to think how close we are to Christmas!  We're still wearing shorts and t-shirts in Texas so it makes it hard to get in the spirit but we're definitely trying!  We had a wonderful extended weekend filled with family, friends, and lots of shopping! ;)  Here's a peek into the last few days!

Shelly hosted Thanksgiving for her family and ours.  The meal and fellowship were nothing short of perfection!  While I missed being with the rest of my family, it's nice knowing you always have a place that opens you with welcome arms.

Weekend recap - a little bit of everything + some exciting news!!!

I can definitely tell the holidays are gearing up!  The calendar is starting to fill and it's finally getting cooler outside!  This weekend included a little bit of everything.  Here's a glimpse into our crazy!
 We started Friday off with Math Day at Hope's school where I took exactly 0 pictures.  #momfail  Afterward a group of moms stayed for a bit to decorate the Kinder entrance in anticipation of Monday's Decades Day!  Kindergarten has been assigned the 50's so I'm picturing lots of poodle skirts twirling down this hallway tomorrow!
