It's Friday, Y'all!

Happy Friday!! I seriously can't believe January is basically over. Although I have to admit, I'm pretty happy about it. I think Jan is my least favorite month. Bring on February with Valentine's Day and my son's birthday.

Anywho, I've decided that unless I have something more important to discuss, my Friday posts will pretty much always been a random brain dump! :)


I've discovered some more yummy candy (since my primary place of shopping doesn't carry the red jellybeans). These little guys almost look like pink chiclets but taste so good!! I highly recommend them if you love the pink/red flavors like I do!


I've said this before, but I just love the special bond between my kids. Despite being different genders and 4 years apart, (which was NOT our plan) they are the best of friends! I hope and pray they always stay this close!


I had such a fun day date one day this week with my two favorite men. We ran to the mall, ate lunch at Panera, and just enjoyed ourselves. The only thing missing was Cate.  We typically avoid doing things without her b/c we feel so bad, but we have to remind ourselves that we constantly did things when it was just the three of us (for 4 years before William was born). So I think we have to keep doing them even though she's in school. William was such a good little boy (even while trying on jeans at Old Navy), despite missing his nap.


Speaking of Old Navy, I snagged these beauties on clearance by accident when I ran to the back of the store for the bathroom. I love ballet flats and actually have quite a few pairs, but I rarely find them to be comfortable. These were really comfy! I love the pale pink color.


Did you check out my post  from Wednesday with all of my current favs?! I'm hoping to splurge on something REAL soon!!


I need some help with an appetizer to fix for the Super Bowl gathering we're attending. I have my standard "go to" dips that I always fix, but I'd like to try something different. I have my eyes on jalepeno poppers but would love to hear any of your ideas too!

That's all for now!! I hope you have a great weekend! It should be a great one for us b/c the hubs is off! Wahoo!

And don't forget to check out the awesome hostesses of the link up; Darci, Liz, Natasha, and Christina.
