Friday Favorites {1.5.18}

Friday Favorites

Helllllo first Friday of 2018! I’ve decided to start participating in Friday Favorites again this year. I need some positivity in my life right now. Today I’m sharing some favorite things I’m grateful for right now.

One of the biggest things I am grateful for right now are the amazing friendships my kids have made at their new school. Making the decision to switch them to a charter school was full of anxiety for me. I knew in my heart that they were better off in this new school but switching them to a school where they knew nobody was hard. It was a rough few months- especially for Maliah. But they’ve adjust so well and they’ve made some great friends. I was worried that I would never see any of their friends because we live so far away from the school. Having a house full of kids, knowing their friends, and knowing what’s going on in their lives is something I have always really enjoyed. It took a few months but my house is full of kids again. Tyler has football teammates and basketball teammates here all the time and recently there have been new friends too. Maliah always has gaggles of giggling girls over here- which I’m sure has nothing to do with the amount of teen boys also hanging out here ha! Even Mason and Zoey have had quite a few friends over in the last couple of months. I love it.

Something else I’m grateful for is my master bedroom. Matt and I upgraded to a king size bed in 2017 and it’s been amazing. Somehow the master bedroom is always last on my list to get done so it never gets finished. I finally buckled down and finished some long overdo projects. I also splurged and bought some of the most amazingly soft and comfy sheets ever known to man- Cuddl Duds Luxury Plush sheets. They’re like being wrapped into minky fleece and sleeping on a cloud. Seriously. Life changing.

2017 was a hard year for our family with Tyler’s concussion and complicated recovery, some health scares, and just a lot of stressful things. But looking back at our best 9 of 2017 reminded me that we had good stuff happen too. We visited family, we went to Niagara Falls, we hosted family, we had fun. It wasn’t a total wash of a year. There were a lot of memories made.
