Friday Favs: Car Picnics, Water and Chip & Jo

Y'all where has February gone? We have just one more full week till the month is over and we usher in March. Which if I'm being honest about, I'm okay with. I like Spring in Ohio, it's cool, sunny and gives us the perfect mix of days outside and others spent indoors. March also brings with it Connor's Spring Break which I'm excited about. No big plans have been made but I like the idea of being able to spend more time with my little man. But now that I've rambled on about March, let's talk about this week's highlights, a few random thoughts and some photos thrown in for good measure.

On Monday, I spent the morning in Connor's classroom during their Valentine's Day party. Connor has been looking forward to this moment for months. He has been really excited about me coming inside his class. He makes a point to say "when you get to come inside my classroom". I'm not sure what his expectations were but we had a great morning and it was fun to see him interact with his classmates. Also? I still don't want another child and I could never be a teacher. Y'all are saints. 

This week has been insane and I'm really happy to see an empty calendar for the weekend. Here is what we had going on this week:

Monday: School with Valentine's Day party with a play date with friends after for 2.5 hours
Tuesday: MOPS and errands
Wednesday: School, weigh-in and chores around the house before dinner with a friend
Thursday: Play date with MOPS sister tables, laundry and meal prep for the weekend
Friday: MOPS Valentine's Day party (where we gifted store bought Valentine's because #life)

So it's safe to say I'll be sleeping in this weekend. Not every week is like this but this week has been one thing after another. But the weather is supposed to be in the 60's Saturday and Sunday so we will be soaking up some sun and fresh air.

I did find time to read though this week. I finished The Magnolia Story and LOVED EVERY SINGLE MINUTE OF IT. If you like Chip and Jo's show, Fixer Upper, you will love this book. The stories they tell are just so heartwarming. They share their wedding with us in the book and it reminds me so much of the wedding James and I had. I learned a lot about them as a couple before they became famous. If anything, I now love them more. 

The easiest way to make Connor's day is to ask him if he wants a to have a car picnic. We had just an hour in between school and our play date on Monday so I packed a lunch for both of us and let Connor sit in the passenger sit, eat lunch and pick the songs we listened to. He would do this every day after school if given the chance. The only thing he likes more is picnics at the park. 

Today is day 17 no coffee. I've had a few cups of green tea over the last week and a half so I'm not 100% caffeine free but I have to tell you, it's not been as bad as I thought it would be. As you all know Connor doesn't sleep through the night so I'm up at least once so I used to use this as a crutch for my caffeine fix but I've kicked that excuse to the curb. I have, however, drank so much water that some days I feel like I am going to float away.

Here are this week's posts in case you've missed them:
Monday: Always & Forever, A Paper Lovin' Girl
Tuesday: My Loves | Meet My Guys
Thursday: Discover Essential Oils with Simply Earth

This week we are going to enjoy the warmer weather we have. For it to be 60 in February is unheard of here so you'll be able to find us outside most of the weekend.

Happy Friday, friends!
