High Five for Friday!

Happy Friday all! It’s been a crazy, whirlwind week around here. The weather has been rather sub-par and in addition a virus hit my 5 year old son and had us trapped inside for more time than I was comfortable with. Thankfully the virus passed and my son bounced back to his sarcastic self rather quickly. Despite what may have been going on inside our home, the outside world was a bit more exciting. The release of Redbook’s September issue, featuring the 10 Real Women Style Award winners, allowed me to finally announce the secret that I had been hiding all summer. Thank you again for all of your kind words. It’s still quite overwhelming! Now if only Mother Nature could let us enjoy these last few weeks of summer, all would be right ;)

Here’s a look at my week:

1.) Certainly the highlight of my week. You can read more about all of the fabulous winners here on Redbook.

2.) Anyone else into Shark Week? It really pumps me up for our beach trip in two weeks (#sarcasm).


3.) While in Gap, I asked the boys to search for some fall clothing. Am I shocked this is what they came up with?


4.) 13 red long stem roses in August? When Trader Joe’s has them for $4.99 you don’t ask questions.


5.) If anything can make a 5 year old boy bounce back from an illness, it’s trucks. Big trucks.


 Have a fantastic weekend and I’ll see ya Monday!
