Whatever Friday

Pin It

Happy Friday!

Another week bites the dust. What are you all doing this weekend?

A lot happened this week.

1. I purchased my hosting through BlueHost. *Gulp*

Side note: if you follow via GFC (Google Friend Connect, that little widget down on the sidebar) you may want to follow via RSS instead. RSS feeds go through a reader (like Google Reader). Even if you follow blogs in your Blogger dashboard, all those blogs you follow are also in Google Reader. (Does that sentence even make sense to non-bloggers? Lol.)

2. I took Jordan to get her ears pierced. This has been a tricky subject around my house for awhile. Mel was totally against it (he thinks she's too young). She's wanted it forever and my only issue was making sure she was responsible enough. When we learned she would need four teeth pulled as well as partial braces and a palate expander this summer, I figured earrings were a good consolation prize.

Now she's a big girl. *Sniff*

3. I invented a new Olympic sport.

I packed for the grocery store.

And I waxed poetic about second grade.

4. I also hosted a giveaway for a Roul'Pat...it's still going on. Have you entered yet?

5. A few other fun photos from our week...

We went to Donner Lake. Every time we go we brainstorm how we can vacation there. West End Beach, people. If you're in the area, go there!

We had sno-cones. I got root beer float. Thank you Hayley for introducing me to my new favorite place.

Jordan climbed the rock wall at the gym and made it to the top three times (she's never been able to do it before).

Jordan has a certain...style. I hope that second grade mean girls don't beat it out of her. (Notice the glove. On one hand. With the thumb cut out.)

I set up a prop shelf. Because it was getting out of control. Anyone else have this problem?

6. I was all excited for my Saturday-free Fall, since Jordan opted out of soccer. We could travel! Do whatever! Then she requested I sign her up for cheer. (Not CHEER, cheer. For flag football. Way less risky. And cheaper.) She's doing dance and cheer. And she wants to take acting class. I think I've finally found what she likes. Only took me seven years.

7. I'll leave you with a laugh.

And...that's it folks. What are you doing this weekend? Be safe and happy and I'll see you soon!

Jordan is so cute! I love how she poses for all her photos :) I remember when my neice first got her ears pierced... I'm sure Jordan was very excited!

And I can't get over how perfect your pie pockets look!

Are you moving yourself over to Word Press? God bless you if you can do it. I'm in the middle of the process right now, takes 4-6 weeks with my designer.

I think responsibility is key with the ears. Do they understand they have to be cleaned and turned and they will be doing it themselves. My girls all got their ears pierces around the ages of 4-7, it depended on the child!

Oh Jordan from what I can tell will make a great actress!!

Love the prop shelf! Yes, I have 'that' problem ... our dining room has become my permanant photo studio, and I got a big ol' basket to put all my prop linens in. Fortunately, the dining room is just off the kitchen so all the dishes can stay in their 'regular' home and still be very accessible. Ah, the things we do for our blogs!! BTW - Jordan looks adorable! Have a great weekend.

aw she is a big girl, too soon!!! And she and my son, well lets just say he has a golf glove that he wears everywhere, sigh;) And my props, which I hardly ever actually use take up my whole buffet, so yours looks so nice and neat!

We have a tradition in our family that the girls get their ears pierced when they're two. My mother did mine with ice and a long needle--good thing I don't remember that! I had my girls done at our pediatrician's office:-)
My weeks go by so fast with all I have to do between now and December 1st--deadline for submitting my next book for publication. I can't believe it's Friday!
The weekend will be more of what my week was--it all blends together. XOXO

What a big girl you have. We are waiting for the ears as well. I think 10 is a great age. I had quite the traumatic ear piercing experience and I don't want my daughter to go through her pre-teen years with only one ear pierced. It was horrible.
Have a super weekend!

I cannot tell you how many times I've caught a child with one glove on. When I ask, "what's wrong with you?" they look at me like I'm the weird one. Jordan will fit right in!
I've been thinking about those butterscotch pies all week.

Love this recap! What a good week for you and Jordan, and thanks a bunch for grabbing a snowcone with me :) Jordan definitely needs that acting class; that girl needs to channel that energy on the Disney channel or in a clothing line for Target or SOMETHING. Can't wait to walk with you Sunday!

what a cutie pie you have:) they grow much too quickly. When you are up and running with word press I'd love to hear your tips.

I always look forward to your "whatever Fridays". You have inspired me to visit Donner Lake. I will have to put it on our summer bucket list for 2013! Oh and where did you find the sno-cones? YUM!

Okay, that last comment was mine... I have no idea why my name is linking to blogger like that. Hmmm...

I love the confidence that young kids have! They love themselves and the choices they make! I remember my daughter looking at herself in the mirror and saying "I look CUTE!" But too soon that confidence and carefree attitude leave and it is really too bad! She is adorable and I hope that 2nd grade is a fantastic year for her!

Love the caramel apple pretzels! My daughter would love to take these to school.

It's a little shack in Loomis. So yummy!

Thanks Heather. I'll probably do a series if I make it through!

Well, I just put it together. Give me a few days, ha!
