Happy Friday, friends!  I'll tell you what, this working mom of three kids thing is no joke.  Actually, that's a lie.  I feel like I'm excelling in my work life right now, but because I'm putting forth 110% effort during the days, I am way too exhausted at night to even think about sorting through the 500+ photos I've taken since early March.  That's right, over 500 on my camera alone!  I have so many pictures to go through and so many blogs posts to catch up on: Easter, Holden's third birthday, Holden's birthday party, a weekend in Wichita, Rhett's 5-month update, Brantley's spring preschool program, a fishing outing with Papa...I'm not sure it'll all make it to the blog, but I'm sure going to try!  Good thing summer is well on its way!  14 school days and definitely counting!!!!!  Did I mention I'm excited?!

But first, the weekend!  Garth Brooks with neighbors and some phenomenal weather!!  Can't wait to put on my denim dress and cowboy boots and head downtown in our minivan with our best, country-lovin neighbor friends!  Yee haw!

Instagram giveaways.  They're for real, friends, they're for real.  I rarely win anything, but I've won THREE giveaways since January!  The first was a cold-shoulder top from a local boutique, the second was a credit to Rad Revolution, and the third and most recent was a credit to Shedo Lane (which is actually a KC small business)!  I'm still waiting on a romper in Rhett's size to be restocked before ordering from Rad Revolution, but I ordered him some UV apparel from Shedo Lane yesterday and I can't wait for it to arrive!  Huge thanks to the IG accounts who hosted these giveaways--you definitely made my day when I won!

If you like LuLaRoe, do yourself a favor and buy this dress from Old Navy.  It's like a LLR Carly and just as "buttery" soft, but way cheaper.  And less awkward fitting shorter.

I love my Yeti, but I don't love that the lids don't close.  I can't even count the number of times I've leaned over and spilled water all over myself.  I mentioned this to Craig and he found a closable spill-proof lid with decent reviews on Amazon.  If you have a Yeti, this is a must in my opinion!

Next week, I'll be sharing my most recent Stitch Fix and included will be a good-sized giveaway!  You won't want to miss it!  Here's a sneak peek...

And finally, this.  I saw it on Instagram awhile back and since tis the season for thunderstorms and 4- and 2-year olds sleeping with us, it seems wildly appropriate to this math teacher.

Okay, I'm editing to add a sixth thing because three words: Starbucks. Happy. Hour.  My favorite few days of the year is back.  You're welcome.

Have a great weekend!
