It's Friday, Y'all!

Happy Friday!!! It's been a good week here b/c the hubs was off (for the first time in almost 3 weeks), but I have somehow contracted a stupid Summer cold. UGH! But hopefully it'll pass soon and it'll be a great wknd!

Earlier in the week we marked another item off of our Summer bucket list. We took the kids to a local skating rink. Our daughter had been begging to go ever since her class took a field trip there about a month ago. Both kids seemed to enjoy it, but were also very hesitant and cautious. The hubs and I hadn't been on skates since we were probably in high school and we really didn't get to skate much b/c we were helping our kids. We agreed that maybe we'd have a date night there in the future! Silly, but sometimes these activities that you used to do as a kid are still just as fun!

The hubs finally got to join us at the pool this week! We all loved having him there and while he did get in the water with us some, he mainly sat in the shade with our son. I thought they were cute with their coordinating visors while both eating sno' cones. 

 I can't seem to get enough fresh fruit lately. And the kids are eating it up too! We stocked up on Monday (during my weekly grocery trip) and we've almost eaten it all. There's just something about the warmer months that makes me crave fresh fruit/veggies. 

Is anyone else getting a LITTLE bit annoyed with The Bachelorette?? There used to be a "to be continued" episode every so often but I think they've done it with every episode this season. UGH! It's just annoying. 

We can't wait to celebrate my hubs this weekend. He's such a great Daddy to our kids and I hope to shower him with love this weekend. Our kids are very fortunate b/c they have a lot of special "dads" in their lives; their dad, my dad, my stepdad, my father in law, and my grandpa. Lots of love to go around for all of the wonderful Dads! :)

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

As always, my fun link ups:


  1. Awww, the skating picture is so cute, I bet they had a blast.

    Hooray that your husband got to join everyone at the pool :)!

    Have a wonderful weekend and happy Friday, beautiful!

  2. Peaches are one of my favorite summer fruits - I eat one every day!! I think I need to skate how your kids are doing it because I'm a klutz!!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. I love that your kids were using the little helper skate things--that picture is adorable! Hope you guys all had a good time with some old school fun!
    Summer fruit--YES! I am ALL about it lately!!! And it's all SO good.
    Big yay for pool time and celebrating your hubs! Hope you guys all have a great weekend together!

  4. There's nothing better than having your husband home! Looks like you had a blast!

    I hear you on the fresh fruit. We did the same thing this week. Why can't the farmer's market just deliver twice a week? That would be perfect :)

    Have a great weekend celebrating all the great dad's in your family!


  5. I agree with you about the Bachelorette. I am getting bored with this season. I really liked Kaitlyn on the Bachelor, but I am not impressed with her season. That will not stop me from tuning in each Monday though :) The skating pictures are adorable. How great to have your husband home as well. Have a great weekend!

  6. Love the boys eating their sno cones. So sweet! Hope you guys have a great weekend !

  7. Yes to the fresh fruit!! And I'm with you, the Bachelorette is getting on my last nerve. I'm actually rooting for the guys (minus Nick) this season instead of the Bachelorette. This season is completely driving me bonkers! Hope you all have an incredible weekend :)

  8. Marking things off the bucket list is the best! Jealous of all your pool time and with your man there too must have been great!

  9. Fresh fruit & veggies are the best this time of year! I am getting a little annoyed with the to be continued on all the episodes but all the show craziness is making it easy to write my recaps :)

  10. Hey! Just stopping over from the Friday Favorites link party and I have a few things to say: 1) LOVE the name of your blog. Very fitting. :) 2) I love the kiddie-skating-helpers from the skating rink. I'll have to see if our local rink has those b/c I think my daughter would love to try it out! 3) I have a summer cold too so I feel your pain. I also hope you feel better soon and have a terrific weekend!

  11. We have about five different fruits in our house right now. We love fruit! I'm super annoyed about the Bachorette too. They have to do something to keep us coming back;)

  12. I love that you have a skating rink nearby and that you took the kids to try it out! How fun!?!
