It's Friday, Y'all!

Happy Friday! It's been a somewhat boring week here and we pretty much have just laid low and watched the rain come down. Not sure what the weekend will bring, but the hubs is working overtime so I hope to find something to keep the kids entertained!

I probably don't need to explain this pic much - it's basically how I feel. And while I do know we need the rain, it's put a damper on our pool days! Ha!

The kids have done a good job of self entertaining. Not that we haven't watched way too much TV (just keepin' it real), but we have had quite a few concerts. They make quite the team!

 I finally got around to fixing a few new recipes that were on my list. I actually have quite a few more I'd like to try this Summer.

I fixed Salsa Verde Chicken Enchilada Casserole from Natalie's blog.  It was so flavorful and delicious. I will definitely be making it again. The only thing I'll change is to find a milder salsa verde (or make my own). I didn't realize I picked a jar of "hot" and it was really spicy. My hubs LOVED it b/c he loves spicy, but my nose was running the entire time! Ha! Despite the heat, they were very tasty!

I also fixed Astleigh's Blueberry lemon bars. They turned out really good too! YUM!

I'm sad I didn't take any pics of either dish - but they did not disappoint and I highly recommend.

Not only did we enjoy a date night last night, but we were sort of celebrating. We realized that this weekend will be the anniversary of our first date. 13 years ago we had a first date!! It's crazy how time flies! We were just babies (I was only 20)!



 I can't seem to get this song out of my head. It was the "theme song" for my daughter's GA (Girls in Action) Coronation at church last week, and so I heard it last Sunday. It's such a pretty song and we have all been singing it all week!

I hope you all have a great weekend!!! See you back on Monday!

As always, my fun link ups:


  1. Girl, I feel you on that wet cat picture. I had to sub in a soccer game last night and that's how I looked. WOOF, I'm ready for the summer sun, stat!

    13 years of dating, how amazing. Love the picture you shared.

    And that song is super pretty, thanks for sharing it today! Happy Friday, beautiful!

  2. Ugh, this rain needs to end. Enough already!!!
    So glad that you guys were able to get out and enjoy a little date night, and celebrate 13 years--wow! So fun looking back on then and now pics!
    Hope you guys have a great weekend!

  3. Congrats on 13 years! So fantastic!

  4. I need to make those blueberry lemon bars! Congrats on 13 years!

  5. Oh gosh, I had totally forgotten about Girls in Action!!! I think I did that in 5th grade or so at church! I loved it! Hopefully the rain will go away very soon! We just had our first pool day today, and it was great! Enjoy your weekend!
