Friday Favorites 4|9|21

Still there?
Between work, life, spring break and sports I have had 0 time to get on here.
So today I'm playing a little catch up with some favorites over the last few weeks 😊

Linking up with Andrea & Erika for Friday Favorites!

Let's dive in!
I'm not an early riser at all, but I decided to take advantage of an early morning by myself with some coffee and my Bible Recap daily reading :)

Aren't these so cute?
I picked these up at Home Goods on a day out with my cousin.
Technically, they are salt and pepper shakers but I plan on using them as shot glasses ;)

Like I said above, the majority of our time these days has been spent watching practices and games for soccer and football.
We kicked off our soccer season a couple of weeks ago with a W!

I just love #8!

With baseball season starting we needed all new gear since this kid is growing like a weed!

I mentioned it before, but I'm saying it again.
My favorite thing (quite possibly the only thing) I like about living in the country are seeing these beauties grace our property :)

It was nice, but colder on the first day of spring break.
So we bundled up and headed outside to get some practice before the real practice.
X hadn't picked up a bat, glove, etc. in 2 years!

In home news, I finally unboxed the Roomba we purchased almost two years ago and gave a try.
It is still learning our house, but I'm loving not having to sweep myself!

Another weekend means more soccer!

This past weekend of soccer didn't go our way, but it was still fun watching those boys play.
X did get to take a penalty kick, but unfortunately it hit the pole :(

The second game was tough too!
The teams we played were really good.
We came away with a loss, but X did score our only goal of the day :)

Last minute Easter Sunday dinner set up.
Nothing fancy, but the food was good :)

And this right here is 100% me!

Another big thing happened over the last few cousin asked me to be in her wedding this fall!
So excited!
Things have truly come full circle since I was in her mom's wedding when I was 9, then she was in my wedding when she was 16!
We went earlier this week to pick out my dress.
This boutique is so cute!

This is the cute knot bracelet she gave me when she asked me :)

After what felt like a million dresses (it was actually 9 multiple times), I came away with this one...

We all picked different dresses in this pretty green shade, and they look really good together!
So excited for November!

Oh, just another day...another practice.
This time it was football :)

And last but not least, this...

And that my friends is it!
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
I'm off for all the soccer and football over the next few days!

Mini Life Update

Monday, March 22, 2021

Hello Monday & Welcome Spring!
It is a beautiful day today here in central Ohio!
This week kicks off our new and even crazier schedule, but we are excited for it!

X is playing 3 sports (total of 4 teams) this spring!
We are nuts, I know!
He has been going to soccer lessons all winter and has had team practice on Friday nights, but this week things really kick off.

Mondays and Thursdays we have soccer team practice.
Tuesdays and Fridays he has soccer lessons/practice.
Wednesdays he has football practice and then goes to soccer lessons.
And then his travel soccer team starts games this weekend!

Football games start in a few weeks on Sunday afternoons, and he is playing in a mini soccer league for the club where he takes lessons.

I mentioned 3 should be starting sometime around the end of April and is pretty much every day of the week.

I feel like Dory right now...

I realize after typing Life Update as the title, our lives basically revolve around X these days.
Mic and I are still busy handling our actual business each day, and still trying to find mirrors and sconces for the bathrooms 🙍

Please tell me it isn't just us that our lives revolve around our child's life!

And that is all I got for today!
Hope you all have a wonderful Monday!

Friday Favorites 3/18/21

Friday, March 19, 2021

Sometimes the week just gets away from you and you don't post your Friday Favorites until the day is just about over 🤦🏻‍♀️

Linking up with Andrea & Erika once again.

I was looking through photos the other day and came across all of X's soccer pics, so I put them all together in a little collage.
Oh my goodness, I just love this not so little guy!
Can't wait for the spring season to start next weekend!

I came across this image and it is exactly how I feel about our home!

I think my house was "that" house when I was a kid and that makes me feel so good.
I pray that we can do the same for X's friends :)

This is not a favorite, but I had to share.
Homework is the worst!
I love this guy, but boy do we butt heads sometimes.
Homework is always one of those times!

The weather was so nice earlier in the week, so X and Mic took advantage of it and got outside for a bit.

I'm just going to leave this right here...

I decided to have some fun with my nails this week in honor of St. Patrick's Day!
Pot of gold at the end of the rainbow 🌈

Speaking of St. Patrick's Day...this guy jumped out of his comfort zone on Wednesday and participated in the 3rd Grade spelling bee!

While he didn't bring home the big trophy, we are so proud of him and how well he did :)

Of course we wore green on one of my favorite holidays, but I had to wear camo to cheer on my guy!

Good hair days and sunshine call for car selfies :)

And I couldn't agree with this one more...

So many good songs that I listen to while I am cleaning/making dinner that I used to request back in the day! 😂

And I'm calling it a week on that note!
Have a great weekend friends!

XOXO ~ Vanessa

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Don't forget to wear some green!

Cheers my friends!

Friday Favorites | 3/12/21

Friday, March 12, 2021

It's Friday 🙌🙌
Linking up with Andrea & Erika for another week of Friday Favorites!

X and I both got much needed haircuts last Thursday night, and he enjoyed his favorite part of the visit...getting his hair washed and his head massaged 😂

We showed up at school drop off the other morning to see the cups X and a classmate put in the fence to spell "Be Kind" have slowly started going away.
On this particular day all that was left was "King" 👑

This has been a favorite lately.
I don't drink very much, but my go-to right now is Sunkist and Vodka :)

X played his last indoor soccer game of the season on Saturday afternoon.
It was crazy intense!!!
We should have won during the regular game time, but unfortunately one of our kiddos bumped the ball into our goal on accident.
Making it tied 1-1 at the end.

Because this was a tournament they had to have a winner.
The boys played a 5 minute overtime before having to move on to a shootout.
And what a shootout it was!
X was picked as one of the 5 kids to participate in the shootout.
He was the 4th to go on his team and scored a goal!!
The place was going nuts!
Honestly, you would have thought we were about to win the Super Bowl or something.
His coach even picked X up and was spinning him around!

 After our last kid shot and missed the other team had one player left.
She ended up scoring on a toe-ball kick.
Here is where things got interesting.
Each team must have went through their entire roster 3 times before it was over.
Meaning 30+ shots were attempted from each team!
Unfortunately, that same girl kicked the winning goal.
Our goalie stopped the ball, but he slightly bobbled it and it went in.
While it was a loss, it sure didn't feel that way!
And it is still crazy how exciting it was!

Another favorite this week....a quiet/clean house ;)
You moms know what I am talking about!

It is slowly starting to feel more like spring around here!
That sunshine was definitely a favorite!

On the blog this week I reintroduced myself to you longtime readers, and shared a little about myself for the newbies too!

And I started a new series called 3 Things Thursday!
This time was all about one of my favorite holidays coming up!

And that my friends is it for the week!
More soccer and football practices for X this weekend,
more playing taxi driver for me ;)

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

XOXO ~ Vanessa
