Last Friday of July Favorites

friday favorite things | finding joy

I'm here to share a few favorites...taking the time to appreciate the little things:

Making August plans

Those plans including a little road trip as a family...just the four of us

Preparing for a trip to IKEA with some of my favorite girlfriends

Making my wish list for IKEA...oh the possibilities :)

The little things that spruce up my home

Suncatchers

Plans to make our first trip to see the Columbus Clippers

Friends who send you tickets to said baseball game because she remembered that you have been wanting to go

Stadium hot dogs and nachos...oh so bad, but oh so good :)

Watching my kids tackle the heat in order to soak up the last few weeks of summer

Playdates with school friends

Hearing the story about how Caleb asked Jamison's school friend to be his girlfriend

Jamison still being excited about school work

Jamison challenging the answers in the book...stating that "nothing" IS a compound word (she is right BTW and I am prepared to send an email regarding this challenge)

Motivating friends

Motivation that is trickling into various parts of my life and I am loving every minute

Music

Remembering that Rondell has headphones and that my phone plays Pandora
Putting those two things together so that I am able to listen to music on my evening walks

A big cup of ice water after my walk

Putting words into action :)

First, your kids are adorable. Really.

And I love August and the planning as well. I'm glad you wrote that -- I was almost going to write it on my list and I ran out of room. Next week. I think our "great minds" think so much alike. :)

I'm excited for you and your road trip. Those are some of my favorite memories of childhood.

And you sound like you have very sweet friends as well. Such blessings. Truly.

Have a wonderful Friday!

Love ya, blogging friend.

It sounds like July has went great for y'all. How great that Jamison wants to do school work, even in the Summer. I don't think my kids have cracked open a workbook any this Summer. {bummer!} I even bought a couple for each. All mine are caring to do is sleep late, watch Spongebob and swim. How cute that Caleb did that! I remember a friend of mines little brother liking me. I would spend the night at her house and he would always end up following us around, sitting by me in the car, while we ate and watched tv. It was annoying back then but now I look back and it was really cute!

I can't wait for our trip!

I also want to take the kids to a Clippers Game, but first I need to get T little more motivated to do something other than what suites her at the moment:)
