Friday Highlights 2.13.15

Happy Friday!

It's Friday and it's almost Valentines Day! This week could be summarized with Valentines, Valentine boxes and heart shaped everything. We have been extra busy preparing for our home school coop pizza party this afternoon. I vividly remember last years party and how exhausted I was when I came home.

Please dear God let me have time for a quick nap today.

ONE} Girl Mom Series

Yesterday I announced my first ever blog post series...

Life as a girl mom is very near and dear to my heart. I love everything about having two little girls to call my own.

I decided to create a series to celebrate mothers and daughters. The series will kick off on February 26th! If you are interested in being featured check out yesterdays post for more details.

{TWO} Run With The Wind

Tomorrow, tomorrow I run with the wind.

Without giving to many details (I have to save those for the race re-cap) tomorrow I participate in a 25K (15.6 mile) relay. My part is 5.2 miles with 2 partners running the same. This is my first ever relay race so I am pretty excited. I am also excited that this race should promise no head winds. Now if only it was going to be a bit warmer.

{THREE} This Weather

For real y'all it is CRAZY. It was sunny and 70 degrees just a few days ago. The weather has been a total roller coaster ride over the past month.

I'm SO over it. 

{FOUR} Ikea Trip... Forever Away

Guess who has an Ikea trip planned?!?!

Sure it may be a little over 3 months away but a trip planned is a trip planned. I simply can not wait. It is likely for the best that I have to wait. I probably need ALL of that time to save up some cash and plan out all the things I "need" to purchase. 

What are your favorite things to buy there?

{FIVE} Catechisms

This week I had a guest post on Wife Mommy Me.

I shared about a simple tool that we use to teach our girls more about who God is. I was so encouraged by the feedback. It is never to early to start teaching your children.

  1. Ikea is such a fun place. Yes, you have to plan for it like it is a big trip you are taking. Good luck on your race!

    1. Haha ha! So glad to hear that me really planning this out is needed :). The race was great!

  2. Oh my goodness!! I missed your announcement! What a WONDERFUL series (of course I'm biased since I'm a girl mom!) This is so exciting to have on your blog!
    GOOD LUCK tomorrow! You are going to rock the relay! So excited for you!

  3. I love Ikea-- need to plan a trip there :) Hope you have a great weekend and get rest!

  4. I've never been to an IKEA but it definitely looks like a lot of fun! SO.MUCH.STUFF. I'm really looking forward to your girls series. I know there are going to be some amazing posts from awesome mamas! And good luck tomorrow!!

  5. Good luck on your race. You're going to do great. A pizza party sounds like so much fun. And three months is the perfect amount of time to put together a list and save some cash. I love ikea and their picture frames. You really can't beat $7.99 for an 8x10 frame.

  6. You will LOVE IKEA!!! It's my fave. We have one 20 min away and I go too often. Get the $1 ice cream and buy an Expedit! And some picture frames! And you are good to go :)
    Also, GOOD LUCK tomorrow!!!! Happy Valentine's Day!

  7. I could get in HUGE trouble at IKEA. HUGE.

    Have a great time at your race--good luck!

  8. I'll be running tomorrow too! Although it's not really a "race" just a fun run. Can't wait to hear how yours goes!

  9. True story: I have never been to Ikea. :-\ Sounds like you have a lot of great things going on!

  10. I cannot wait to hear about your race! It sounds like so much fun! I've never done a relay type race, but have always wanted to. I can't wait to hear all about your run!

    IKEA - love that place. If you can, go on a weekday. It's so much less stressful. And you'll probably find it easier to buy ALL the things without as many people around. :)

    Have a fabulous Valentine's Day!

  11. Have fun on your run! An Ikea trip sounds heavenly!
