the Fridays: No. 7

one--S & A had their first girls' day with me of the summer this week!  We have been talking about what it truly means to have a servant's heart and what that looks like applicably in life.  We decided to serve our local police department!  The girls came over and we baked sugar cookies in the shape of badges and dropped them off at the police department.  Not only did we have a fun and sugar-filled afternoon but it was a great way to show our local PD how much we appreciate them!

two-- The last closet at #project007 was cleaned out and organized this week!  This was a huge item on my to-do list and I feel so much better that everything has been put in a place and the extra clutter has been removed from our home.

three--  Summer break has made it possible for me to indulge in Sonic Happy Hour at my heart's content.  What a treat.
four-- Last weekend we opened up Camp Draper to our favorite boys while Karen & Greg were off at Coaches Outreach.  We went non-stop all weekend long and had an absolute blast.  There were trips to the water park, Farmer's Market, museum and so much time spent outside playing with the dogs both Dixie & Duke went into depression when the boys went home.

five--  My #coachswifelifementor wrote the sweetest blog post about our first year of experiencing what Titus 2:3-4 is all about.  It's really incredible to see the scriptures come to fruition in our own lives.  You can catch a glimpse into her heart and see for yourself why I cherish her friendship so much at Coaching is a Ministry.

the Fridays: No. 6

one--  Somehow our city has yet to jump on the city swimming pool train.  CH surprised me with a season pass to the local water park for the summer & I enjoyed a couple of days laying out in the sunshine this week.  I was able to knock three books off my to-read list while I was there as well.  Made this book lover's heart so happy.  

two-- Anyone else been introduced to LuLaRoe?  A friend of mine has gotten me HOOKED on the Amelia Dresses.  I am now the proud owner of two with every intention of stopping there.

three-- Coach & I have begun our Total Money Makeover following Dave Ramsey's 7 Baby Steps to financial freedom.  You can read all about the beginning of our journey here.

four-- Thursdays during the summertime mean 7 on 7 football in our lives.  Yesterday was my first 7 on 7 to attend and I am so glad I did!  I was able to get some steps in while watching my hubby do his thing.

five-- In this #coachswifelife you meet some incredible women.  Thanks to the Married to the Game Podcast I was introduced to Lauren, who is the author behind The Simply Southern.  We quickly realized that if we lived in the same city we would probably be joined at the hip & I have been so blessed by her over the last few weeks.  We are planning on a day trip to the other's respective towns this summer and I am so excited for us to be "in the flesh" friends after that!

Till Next Time Y'all,

the Fridays: No. 4

one-- Coach Husband took me to prom this past weekend y'all!  We chaperoned prom had a fabulous time watching our players & their dates live it up on the dance floor.  I loved renting a dress once again from Rent the Runway & going out with my favorite date.  

two--  The first annual Girls Weekend Trip is officially booked & planned!  Two of my favorite blonde teacher friends & I are headed to Austin for a weekend of food, shopping & some girl time.  It only took three coffes, five pieces of technology and two hours to come up with a final destiantion and booking.  Our plan is to make this a yearly occurrence and have already started throwing around ideas for next years trip.  #helpingtokeepaustinweird #girlsweekendaway

three-- My Emily Ley Planner & journal came in this week!  I am so sad I have to wait until August to start officially using it.
four-- I went to the 254 Creative last night with my good friend Tamara.  We had a blast learning the basic of hand-lettering. It was surprisingly a way for me to decompress and de-stress.  While I do not foresee myself busting out some hand lettered prints any time soon it will be a fun thing to indulge in for a little "me" time.

five-- Only SEVEN school day wake-ups left until sweet summertime.  I am repeating this little saying each morning as motivation to get up and conquer. 

the Fridays: No. 3

one-- This week I got to play taxi-service for my #footballfamily!  Karen's work schedule was off this week so I was able to take K over to football practice after school.  Being at practice for the 2-3 minutes it took to make the child swap gave me a mini glimpse into the other side of my husband.  It was a real hoot to watch him blow his whistle, yell at players to hit the fence & see him in action.
two-- Currently reading The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney.  Love when book recommendations from friends far & wide.  It expands my bookshelf and gives me a change of pace from my normal.

three-- The month of April at school we were collecting Cans for Critters.  The grade level that collected the most aluminum cans would win a Behind the Scenes Tour of our local zoo.  Sadly kindergarten came in 2nd place but our competitive spirit never wavered.  
four-- I have had my eye on a monogrammed fishing shirt for the past few weeks.  Mint Julep Monograms is my go-to for anything I ever need and I have finally decided to pull the trigger but cannot for the life of my decide on what color thread I need my monogram in....
Suggestions are welcome & encouraged!

five-- This week Coach Husband had to have a difficult conversation with a player.  Not about athletics or performance but a life lesson.  We talked together and prayed about what to say, how to say it and asked for the Lord to prepare our hearts if it wasn't received well.  These are the times I am most proud of my husband.  Not after a win or even after he received the Outstanding Teacher of the Year Award but when he is intentionally growing, molding and mentoring young men.  He's my favorite y'all.  

Till Next Time Y'all
