Thanksgiving in Arkansas

We spent the Thanksgiving break in Arkansas! We woke up early Monday morning with a stomach bug.... So we didn't leave until Tuesday! Thankfully no one besides Henry got sick.

 By the end of the day he was feeling like himself and eating!

 Tuesday afternoon we arrived in Arkadelphia for some grandparent fun! Papaw taught henry how to measure things...

 Wednesday we dug for diamonds in murfreesboro, ar.

 It was a fun experience but we didn't find any diamonds....

 Thanksgiving day, Jonathan flew into little rock and joined us in Arkadelphia!

 Lucy made a turkey platter

 And we ate until we couldn't eat anymore.

 Friday we went to Hot Springs to dig for Crystals! We found bucket loads of Crystals!

 We played on the farm Saturday and headed home on Sunday.

We finished our break by making slime.

 Happy Kids!

One thing we didn't get to do ove3r the break was to see the new movie wonder. So Monday I picked the kids up and we went to the movies after school!

  And that was THanksgiving 2017. We have a lot to be thankful for!

Weekend Review + Weekly Plan

Remember when I used to write a blog? I sat down today to catch up on the past two weeks! I'm going to spread it out throughout the week then I look like a more consistent blogger....

||Weekend Review||

Jonathan and I attended his work holiday party. We got dressed in our best cocktail attire and headed to the Omni at the star where we ate, and played arcade games. The theme is usually casino night but they changed it this year to include video games. It was a lot of fun until I played ms. pacman and screamed loudly for all the hear when I died. (It's more stressful than I remember.)

 Jonathan's co-worker's wife, Tiffany.

And last fuzzy picture I took... Thankfully they had a professional photographer there and I'm waiting for our step and repeat pic.

I bought my dress off of thredup. It's a Temperly London which would be my favorite brand if I were a billionaire. For now I'll have to snatch up all the consignment clearance dresses that I find. (you can follow this link to get a $10 credit + 40% off your first purchase.)

 Temperly London- $2000 vs. Thredup $60

Friday Favorites!

Friday Favorites!

I'm so excited it's Friday! Praise the Lord that the kids have next week off of school! We are excited to rest and relax and visit with family!

Alright, here are my favorite for the week!

{one} My Instagram sale is tonight! Follow @toosweetsisters on Instagram and shop tonight at 9:00! I have 70 items to share with all of you! I cleaned out my closet and Lucy's closet. I'm purging all of her Matilda Jane because she would rather wear a flip sequin shirt and leggings... (hey, see that New with Tags Barefoot Dreams Cardigan? I'm selling it for $65 shipped. They are $100 in stores.... It would make a great Christmas present!)

{two} My house is decorated for Christmas! Henry and I had the best time decorating last weekend! It took hours to put up 5 trees and a mantle and he hung in there helping and asking questions. We had a great conversation about why we celebrate Christmas and all about Jesus.

{three} I pulled out my paints this past week and wiped up a Christmas wreath painting to put on my mantle. I just needed a little something and I had all the supplies at home. I forgot how much I liked painting and creating.

{four} Makeup. I ran into a lady at the makeup counter at the gym. We were both getting ready and I saw that she had the biggest bag of makeup I've ever seen. So, curiosity got the best of me and I asked about her bag of makeup and what her favorite products were. She was an makeup artist and she said she loved this concealer. I'm going to try it next time I run in ultra!

{five} I put together a gift guide for girls. Lucy helped me make the list! See here!
 {six} Incase you want to see my newest Collin County Moms Blog Post on the Lies I've told my kids you can read that here!

{seven} Look at this baby picture of Henry. I miss him being that little!

That's all for today.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend and wonderful Thanksgiving Break!

Weekly Happenings

Just a phone purge of pictures from the week!

Before bed, Jonathan and Henry got a little hair styling by Lucy!

Last week we attended Taylor's last football game! I love football, even at the junior high level!

I ran into the school to hang up some decorations for veteran's day and got to have lunch with my little man!

 Last Thursday Lucy was sick from school with an ear infection. She was pretty down and out but I enjoyed spending the day with my baby!

 We had lunch at Panera.

That same day Henry and I played in the leaves! Have you ever seen a prettier face?

 After a round of antibiotics Lucy was out racking leaves.

Thursday Night I attened  a craft night with my fellowship girls.
 We made gather signs.

I made the worst one....

So I went home and did a little free handing.

 Friday Henry had a Thanksgiving Lunch. His class got to present what they were thankful for, Henry is thankful for his sister.

 Henry loves life.

 I'm glad his Manna got to attend.

Friday night was the start of Lucy's volleyball tournament. We one our first round of games and continued to Saturday morning where we lost well in the second round of games.

 I'm glad I get to do this with my friends.

 Saturday was also Henry's end of the year party.

 Tuesday night Morgan and I met with our youth small group of girls. I love these sweet girls. We planned a small mission project to fill two operation Christmas boxes.

Yesterday was our bible study feast and I did a little shopping with a group of girls afterwards. Amy and I needed a picture because we were twins!

Now you are caught up on all our doings. I did forget to mention that my house is decked out for Christmas... That's what I did the rest of the weekend!
