Friday Five 2.0

I don't know about you, but I am *so* glad it's Friday!!

Dallas weather is looking absolutely beautiful!  We are officially in "summer lite" (not quite summer heat; also called spring in most places).

Here are five things that made my week!

Remember this from last week?

It's finished!  I *LoVe* it!!

More detail:

2.  I'm sure everyone is sick of hearing about tutugate, but I think these women freaking rock!  This lame article from a magazine I will now be sending back (it was a free subscription thank goodness) makes me want to wear my tutu daily.  Like my friend Lisa pointed out, women already have enough self esteem related issues.  Now your going to make fun of something we wear, while bettering ourselves?  Shame on you.

3.  These.  A picture speaks a thousand words of delicious.

4.  I signed my life away up for a HUGE challenge this winter.  The New Year's Double.  I have done parts of this race the past two years, but the big draw is the double aspect.  You can double up on a 5k, 1/2 marathon or full.  Well...this year the 5k was bumped up so runners can double double down!  Somehow I was cheerfully coerced into a 5k/26.2 on NYE followed by 5k/26.2 on NYD.  "It'll be fun!" they said....gets me every time!

This really is a great race...great friends, great swag, awesome (HUGE) bling.  Especially if you complete one of the double aspects.  Can't. Wait.

5. I definitely saved the best for last...

This boy.

One of the love's of my life.  He was honored at his school's assembly today for exhibiting extraordinary forgiveness.  He is a "Bear of the Month"!  I am so proud of him!!

I love him being 7 (almost 8).  While I look forward to what the future brings for him, part of me wishes I could keep him this age forever.  He is so funny.  So loving.  Adores his mama.

Love that kid.  He is my heart.

Until next time...

Have a great weekend!!


  1. Wait, do you mean you're doing a 5K & marathon two days in a row? That's an incredible challenge - neat!

    1. Yup! Crazy! I hunk I had a momentary lapse in judgement when I signed up...just looking for the next big challenge! Runners that participate in the double are hugely rewarded! The medal is very sought after and gets cooler every year.

  2. Aww, congrats to your son! And your dresser looks great! Lots of excitement going on!
