Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends!  It was a jam packed week at our house.  Did you catch my blog posts this week?  If you have ever thought about going to Wisconsin Dells, you've got to read these posts!

Wisconsin Cowboy Beans - DELICIOUS!

6 Favorite Wisconsin Restaurants

Wisconsin Highlights

Now onto my favorites of the week:

1. Dinner with friends.  I headed north and my friends headed south and we met in the middle for dinner.  Vincennes has a great Marshalls, Old Chicago and Lics.  We try to hit all of those spots and catch up on each other's lives.  It's my favorite night of the quarter :)

2. Hair.  I have been using something new on my hair and people are noticing.  
I'm getting nice compliments and my hair is growing.  The best part is that it isn't a crazy supplements, marketing scheme or subscription.  It's an $7.97 bottle of hair OGX Extra Strength Damage Remedy + Coconut Miracle Oil from Amazon.  I use a little on the ends every day and then put a heavier layer on as a conditioner before or after showers.  I also try to really limit putting any heat on my hair.  Never blow drying it and minimal styling tools.  My hair is thrilled with this routine.  You've got to give this miracle hair oil a try!!

3. Bible study luncheon.  I went to our end of the year Bible study luncheon and it was kind of sad.  I love these ladies and love seeing them twice a month.  The church gifted us with shirts and we exchanged some gifts.  I'm excited for a new devotional and hope to keep up with my new friends this Summer.

4. Pollination Program.  Fletcher's grade did a darling program and invited parents to come and see it.  The bee themed songs were so cute.  Leo loved it and I was so proud of Fletcher.  He loves a good play list, but he does not love performing for a big crowd.  He was so excited to see us waving to us throughout the whole program.  Then he shared all of his research with us back at his classroom.  He's learned a lot in 2nd grade.  I'll forever and always love second grade handwriting.

Or his signature of Fletcherj :)

The highlight of us being at school was Fletcher getting to proudly parade Leo around the room and introduce everyone to his baby brother.  It was so sweet!

5. Tulips!  My neice gave us tulip party favors and they bloomed this Spring!  They added a pretty pop of color to our landscaping.

Speaking of a pretty pop of color... we keep finding nests filled with eggs on our property!

6. We've been scootering, walking and biking all around the neighborhood.

7. Elite Air.  The kids got invited to a friend's birthday party and they loved this place!  The trampolines, ninja gym, inflatables and climbing structures were really fun.

8. Backyard Bonfires.  We've been making a lot of s'mores and enjoying time around the fire pit.  It's our favorite hang out spot.  Good idea, Kev.

9. All of my favorite things in one outfit - a dress in my favorite color, a headband and a puff sleeve jean jacket.  Yes, please.

10. Story time.  I love taking this cutie to story time each week.

11. Countdown to Summer!  We kept talking about how many school days we had left so I made us a countdown.  My crew loves a post-it note countdown so this was has been a big hit.  It's also been a good visual for me to figure out how many days I have left to get done all the things before everyone is home for Summer :)

I hope you have a great weekend!  I'll see you back here on Monday!

Linking up with Momfessionals
