Happy Friday, friends! Are you having a great week? This week was a good one for me.
I’m linking up with Andrea, Erika and Narci for the weekly Friday Favorites.
A little warning, this post is picture heavy 😉 My birthday was yesterday. It was my favorite for sure! It was nothing glamorous, but it was perfect. I still had to take out the trash, cook meals, mop the floor, run errands, and keep things running smoothly. The kids were awesome. Chores were done without asking twice. They didn’t argue. Played nicely together. And had a great day at school. What else could I ask for?
First, let’s wish Stacy a Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday, Sis! I love having our birthdays 364 days apart. It’s made for some really fun birthdays :). I hope you have a great day and your family treats you like royalty 😉
Story-time is a favorite of all ours. Sterling tells the best stories. She sings them and makes sure every sentence is rhyming. She’s so cute!
After dropping Xander off at school, Sterling and I got busy making my cake. She’s a finger-licking-good assistant 🙂
Sterling and I played shopping before lunch. I wanted to go shopping, but she wanted to pretend.
After I dropped Sterling off, I went shopping. I wanted to stop by Gymboree since they were having a great sale. Plus we needed a few summer essentials. Gymboree’s always a favorite of ours.
I also stopped by Ulta to pick up a few things and the pharmacy. Then it was already time to start pick-ups. That time is never long enough and I’d rather keep her home 😜
After grabbing the kids, we headed to 7-11 to grab fidget spinners. I said I wouldn’t buy these silly things, but Xander wanted to spend his own money on them. So I let him. Only because he keeps asking his friends to buy him one 🤣 Which is not okay to do!
We finally started decorating my cake. I did the frosting and they did the decorating. I just told them how I wanted it.
So careful not to get any frosting on her little fingers
The finished product. Just how I envisioned it. Not perfect, but made with love.
My favorite six year old.
The cookie jar was supposed to be for Mother’s Day but came on Wednesday. So I’m claiming it as my birthday gift 😉 I love it, thanks babe!
Xander drew a picture earlier in the week what he thought my cake should look like. Such a sweet boy. He asked daddy to buy it for me. But, we all know that wouldn’t happen.
At Target Sterling wanted to get me a card. So I showed her the rows she could pick from. The only stipulation was it had to say “MOM” somewhere on the card. She found it and put it upside down on the envelope so the cashier wouldn’t flip the card so I could see it. She’s so cute!
I love how she spelled my name, completely backwards, and in order!
She nailed the card!
I mean it’s just soo her!
Homemade cards are always a favorite from Xander.
How awesome is this?! Yes, I love you too buddy 😘
The kids sang Happy Birthday to me. Click the link to watch the video 😉
Being a military wife is never fun, nor easy, but life has to keep moving. Nick got off work later than normal so he missed it all 😒. The kids sure knew how to make me feel special though. They also let Nick know that he was “in the dog house” 😂
Whew. That’s it from me on this birthday edition. I’ve accomplished a lot this past year. The future will be grand.
