On our way to an adventure.This week’s learned, links, and thankfulness…

My sister is almost home!!! One more sleep until we see her!

Tonight, Ben and I are going dancing! My friend Hope Leigh is part of the Dance Free Movement, and I can’t wait to join in the Dancing Man Party!

Not that we really need coat wear in Southern California, but I think this would be a fun one to make.

Love this outfit.

Everlane makes the best basic tees. My favorites are their box cut tees and their cotton U-necks (great quality for under $20!). I’m wearing one here. If you try it, and like it, then spread the word to your friends and you can earn $25 credit to shop again.

This blockitechture set is cool. Another wooden block set I know my girls would love.

If you’re looking for a good candle scent, Capri Blue is by far my favorite! I’ve used it for almost 6 years now and it’s the only candle scent I ever burn.

Thankful for sweet children who put up with me and lavish me with grace and forgiveness. I know I’m totally not easy to live with.

Thankful for time to hang out with friends and seeing all our kids play together.

Even after said hang out with friends, I’m grateful for the quiet afterwards so this extroverted introvert can recharge a little.

While, I am running at full speed a lot of the time, and need to work at being more present, I’m thankful for being able to serve my family. Although the constant cooking, cleaning, refereeing, and laundry wear me out, it brings me joy to love this clan of mine. The days feel super tough now, but I know I will miss this later.

I’ve been behind in emails and responding back to comments (#storyofmylife), but I’m hoping to tackle that this weekend. I want you to know I’m thankful for the time you take to comment and I do read each one even though I’m slow to respond back. Happy weekend friends!

    About the everlane t’s… how long will these last before getting tiny holes in the front? I’m sick of all the cheap t’s that gets holes after a wear or two and am willing to pay for ones that will last! 🙂

      I’ve had a couple of mine for about 2 years now, and I don’t have any holes in the them. Ben gave me another tee for Christmas and that doesn’t have any holes either. I have both dried them in the dryer and air dry, and when air drying I think they come out a little more wrinkly, so I lightly iron them. I think air drying is my preferred way of drying them though. Hope this helps! I think you will really like them, let me know if you end up trying them! I would love to know what you think!
