Friday Highlights 6.12.15

 Hello Friday!

This week has been so much fun and absolute craziness. Craziness and fun that only come with VBS week! We have had a blast attending the VBS of a local church that honestly has one of the best programs you will ever find. The girls have both been attending classes and I have been serving in the Pre-K crafts. VBS in the mornings, pool in the afternoons with errands between. 

Does it get any more summer than this?!

However I am looking forward to a low key weekend and plenty of time to recover. I also need to plan a pow-wow with the girls so we can create our summer bucket list for 2015. 

Let's check out this weeks Friday picks.

{ONE}  On The Blog This Week

This week on the blog I posted our May Project Sunday photos

Shared what's going on "Currently"

Talked about how you can REALLY help out those living through a disaster.

And finally posted my dining room make over reveal
This is the before. 

You HAVE to see the after.

{TWO} New Hair Cut

I also chopped the hair again. It hasn't been this short since Marissa turned #1! 

I am loving having a shorter length and have no plans of growing it back out.

{THREE} Smells Of Summer.

I was thinking about the smells of summer and how much I love them.
Fresh cut grass, coconut anything, the grill fired up, fresh tomatoes and my favorite smell....
This smell throws me way, way back to my childhood. I LOVE this stuff.

What is your favorite summer smell?

{FOUR} all free clear

So this happened this week.

Talk about being a bit surprised when that showed up on my Facebook. So happy that all loved my post enough to share it with others. You can check out the original post here.
