ONE. The Sweet Spot
My aunt sent me this article the other day and it pulled on my heartstrings to share with yall today… talking all about raising kids, relishing in every moment, and savoring your days: the good AND the bad. You go from “The Blur” to the “Sweet Spot” and then you realize it’s all gone by way too quickly. These really are the best days of our lives.
TWO. My New Birthday Bling
The best part of turning 30 was some of the thoughtful and keepsake items I was gifted…particularly in the jewelry department! Mimi and Pappy knew I wanted something I could wear everyday to remind me of my girls so they got me a personalized gold bar necklace with their names engraved–it’s PERFECT! And my best girlfriends and I decided last year that when we all turned 30, we would buy each other a significant piece of jewelry so they got me a gorgeous rose gold bracelet with a center stone…they know me too well. (FYI: the necklace is from Be Monogrammed and the bracelet is from Bloomingdales)
With all the kiddos going back to school this next week, tax free shopping to stock up on the essentials is in full force this weekend in Tennessee. Lucky for me, we can partake in the savings, too! It’s amazing how much money you can save when you’re not having to spend almost 10% more with tax added on (yes, our sales tax is WAY high). I might have to pick up a few “necessities” for my girls.
FOUR. Football is Fast Approaching
You heard it here…the countdown is on and my favorite sport is coming our way SOON! It’s officially 30 days until Football Time in Tennessee so I have been scouting out my favorite stores for all the orange my heart desires. It’s a necessity to stock up early before everything gets picked over. Check out some of my faves:
FIVE. Fun at the Fair
It’s fair season, and they are popping up all over the cities that surround Nashville. First up is the Williamson County Fair this weekend and the Wilson County Fair follows suit in two weeks. I am hoping the weather cooperates so we can take the girls for some yummy food, animal fun, and games galore…who am I kidding? It’s ALL ABOUT THE FOOD!
Another Five on Friday down in the books! Make sure to check out Darci, April, and Christina’s blogs to see what they are up to as well…we hope you’re enjoying this link up as much as we are. To join, simply post away on your site and link up below!
