"My Friday Favorites...."

The past two weeks my brain has been full of studying for my Nursing Aptitude Test, gathering all the necessary documents to send in my application for the Nursing program (Woot Woot!), getting Dylan's cast removed, packing for our move in a few weeks, preparing for my dads wedding and racking my brains on how to work around our sweet girls food allergies. Whew! I need a little fun...

So, since it's Friday and Mother's Day is this weekend, I'd love to share my Friday Favorites with all of my lovely BFF's (Blogger Follower Friends).

Favorite mother and daughter photo How precious is this?

Favorite Summer Activity: Can't wait to this with the kids in our new backyard...

Favorite thing to wear: Sand on my

Favorite thing to do with the kids: Gardening, planting flowers and exploring new places...

Favorite inspirational Blogger buddiesAlicia has a way to capture the true beauty in anything. She has great photography tips, photo challenges and personally I adore her!


Sarah is my childhood friend; now expat in Oxford, England with her beautiful family and whose hubby is working towards his PhD. She is my sister, friend and inspired me to pick up a camera.

Favorite up coming project: A farm table for our dining room. So exited to help the hubs with this one!

Favorite Recipe: Cheesy Quinoa Cakes -- Have you ever tried Quinoa? It is a staple around here!

Do you have any plans for Mother's Day? Our plans are to spend the day at the beach building sand castles, putting our toes in the sand and having a picnic by the ocean. Tell me about your plans for Mother's Day. Are you going anywhere special with your family? Breakfast in bed? Homemade cards? 

Happy Friday!
