Hello, Friday! How happy I am that you are {finally} here! 

Linking up, per usual, with April, Christina, Darci and Natasha for "Five on Friday"; Lauren for "High Five for Friday" and Amy and Karli for "Oh Hey, Friday." 

Here we go...!

Brandon has been traveling on business since Sunday and finally gets home today! He has been in Canada, and we have laughed all week that it has been colder in Dallas, Texas than it was in CANADA. In fact, it was a chilly 29 degrees when I got out of the car to drop Walker off at school yesterday. Brrrr! 

I have had our heater blasting, gas fireplace on high, and the buglet and I have been sleeping in practically parkas. We're supposed to get light snow on Sunday evening, so looks like this trend will continue for a while. 

Walker wasn't having it when I put him in the car the other morning all bundled...check out that side-eye! I felt like that line in "A Christmas Story": "I can't put my arrrrrrrmssssss downnnnnn!" Ha! 

Have y'all heard of The Rage? I'm obsessed with everything in their online store and want to buyallthethings. Seriously, Brandon is probably about to take my credit card away! 

I bought this cardi the other day and I can't wait to wear it! I would like some of my other favorites, but then I'd just be linking the whole site,'re welcome. 

Liz tells me I look like this girl. Ha! 

This article has been circulating around social media lately, and I finally got around to reading it last night. It's called, "10 Things Your Mom Never Told You." Get your tissues out, because it definitely made me a little teary. 

This kind of weather always has me craving soup! I think I'm going to try to make this Chicken Avocado Soup this weekend. Have y'all tried it?

With Brandon being out of town, I typically wake up at 4:30 a.m. since I do everything - and I do mean everything - by myself to try to get us up, fed, dressed, out the door and to school/work on time. Since he's coming home tonight, I am giving him full Daddy Duty and will be taking a nice, hot bath with a glass of wine. And I've deemed it appropriate that he get all poop diapers through Sunday. ;) 

I hope y'all have a wonderful weekend!



  1. I have not heard of the rage but that cardigan is amazing! Off to check their site out!! Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. Love that cardigan! I've been eying that soup for a while now but I don't know how I feel about avocado hot in a soup…can't wait to hear what you think about it.

  3. I love the movie, A Christmas Story, and also made a reference to it on my blog today- funny. I have been eating so much soup lately! I love a warm soup on a cold day. I totally agree that he should take over mommy and daddy duty for a couple days. You are a champ.

  4. hi my name is Janel. I use my husband's acct to comment; so please don't think I'm a creeper man! hahaQ I just found your blog. Have you received the cardi above yet? Just curious if its super long? I am only 5'2 and sometimes extra long cardi's look hilarious on me!
