Friday Favorites (More of My Life Lately)

This is totally random because that is the only way my brain is working right now!  We are in the final stretch before closing on our new house (June 23rd!!!) and are trying to finalize all the "stuff" - finances, projects, cleaning!  The move is the only thing NOT weighing heavy on us - we are loving that professional movers are provided for us.  I've been struggling with accessing some retirement funds from my life as a teacher because there are so many hoops to jump through and no one makes it clear cut or easy!  But I think, as of 8:30 this morning, I think we are back on track!

So here are a few favorites (or things that didn't make my post yesterday!)

1.  Field Day

In past years parents were invited to field day and asked to help.  This year, field day was kind of top secret!  It was managed by school staff only and I only heard about it the morning of when the 8-year-old said "oh, yeah, today's field day."  So kind of different but soooooo glad I didn't have to!

Here are a few pictures our PE teacher posted!

2.  Pennies from Heaven

This is something my mom always believed in but rarely told anyone because she felt silly.  I sort of get it but now love that I get little signs from her just as I need them.  This penny was on the ground at the bus stop on a day when this move was feeling very overwhelming.  It was so shiny and dated 2015...the year we lost Mom.  My anxiety and stress immediately calmed and thins seemed so much clearer and less intimidating.  

3.  This was the day the sign went up on our RI house...and then we got a full price offer the next day!  And amazing whirlwind!!!  So thankful for not having to have showings!!!

4.  Perfectly Posh
A friend through MOPS sells POSH soaps and lotions...and OMGosh!  I love all the scents and the fact that I have no skin reactions to them (because they are good for you!)

I recently tried this face cleaner as a part of her Sample of the Month Club.  You wipe it on with a cotton ball and that's it, folks!!!  No rinsing or anything!  It's like a cleaner, toner, and moisturizer in one - and it's AMAZING!!!

You can check out her site HERE :)

5.  Mornings with this crew :)

Tater leaves earlier and can walk to her school.  We will miss that in Michigan - it's back to the bus for her!

These two take a bus from our neighborhood and it's always a challenge getting out the door but it's also my favorite time of the!

Sass has been counting down the days of school with the ABCs.  It seems to be the trendy thing to do lately!  Today was M - Mismatch Day!  

Thankful for a low-key day today - other than juggling some more phone calls and maybe some unpacking of the storage pod so we can get it out of our driveway...yay for selling our house quickly!

  1. Wow, that's amazing about your house!! How awesome! I believe in the little signs too. When my grandfather passed away I got his old computer printer, and every once in a while, I will come into the office in the morning, and there will be a piece of paper with a heart on it lying in the tray. I think it's a sign!
