Friday Favorites (May 5, 2017)



Well I usually celebrate Friday but I am having one of those weeks....months...I hope not years...completely overwhelmed with life right now....feeling super stressed and unappreciated and it has to stop.  I think I am finally having the courage to say NO...time will tell.  BUT this is our happy place...our little outlet and I am not here to bring anyone down...I am here to celebrate the FAVES from the week and oh yeah....Happy Cinco de Mayo Friends!


As always, linking up with Erika, Andrea and Narci HERE 

Here a few little faves from my week.....

 Super proud of our little nugget.  She placed 1st in the Healthy Kids Running Series last week!  She was #1 in the 2nd and 3rd grade age category- FTW!  





 and this nugget had an accident at Diana's lacrosse game when she fell and hit the corner of her eye and head on the bleachers...and of course ended up with a black eye :(  My heart broke....what impressed me more was that a few hours later she ran her first race at the Healthy Kids Running Series and did so well...it doesn't matter that she was motivated by the fruit at the finish line ;)



and then, later in the week, she was a "boss" at her first skating lesson :)






Thank you to my blogging friends for recommending the "Yum Box." Diana could not be more happy with her lunches now...and she is finally eating everything.  We love the compartments and it is super easy to clean!
 You can find them HERE





 When my bestie asks me for support at a professional networking meeting, I am there in a flash...I always figure it is a bonus helping out a friend while meeting new people...you never know when someone may need a new job OR have a new job for you to fill....and it is a bonus when they feed you free margaritas ;)

 and then when you come outside to find a rainbow...just when you need it...priceless



The family wanted to celebrate Cinco de Mayo this week and we figured out between all of our work committments and volunteer meetings that the only night we could make it happen was Monday...so we went with it.
I made Shay's  
Bacon Jalapeno Popper Chicken Enchiladas
Check out the recipe HERE

BIG HIT!



and this went very well with them...a new fave....
Perrier Sparkling Grapefruit Water

 


Election Results?  Finally ratified...AMEN!
(and bonus that the district got back $2.89 million in adequacy aid...for the win!)







Breakfast with "Mags" another fave from the week...and being able to vent and get emotional support from my Bestie Jill (Mags' Mama) even better...thank God for friends who are like family



That's a wrap.  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Do you have your final race this weekend with the girls? Hank's final is Sunday and he is running drills all over the house in hopes that he can be fast enough for a trophy (we'll see about that). It's cute to watch him practice though.

Um, I'm dying that your youngest was motivated to run by fruit! I need ice cream and cake for motivation! Ha! Have a great weekend!

Tara - I think our running series must have started a little later- the girls have a race this Sunday (Mother's Day) and then one more- hope your boys have a blast at theirs!
