Ok so I might be more excited than any Friday ever before writing today’s post! My parents and one of my sisters are coming to visit tomorrow for the weekend, and the day seriously cannot pass fast enough. Happy Friday to all of you and to the lovely hostesses of 5 on Friday - A.Liz Adventures, Carolina Charm, The Good Life, and Hello Happiness.
ONE – I haven’t seen my family since January, and I’m more than ready to spend the weekend with these peeps! Hopefully Dad is more excited tomorrow than he was in this pic… he needs to perk up a little bit.
TWO – One thing on our agenda tomorrow is a trip to the Dallas Arboretum. Last year we visited here with my Mammo and Pop when they came to Dallas, and I can’t wait to go back! I’ve been checking the weather like a crazy lady all week, and I’m really hoping it will not rain. We are having dinner at Benihanna on Saturday night, and I’m all kinds of thrilled about that. My sister, Mary Katherine, requested dinner here. I haven’t been in AGES. It should be fun and delicious!
THREE – I just can’t resist sharing my March cards from years past – they make me so happy hanging by my desk in our study nook!
FOUR –I’m making this baked oatmeal with blueberries for a late breakfast for us once they arrive tomorrow morning. No one loves oatmeal quite as much as my mom, and I think tomorrow morning it might be a little chilly outside, so this should be a perfect warm breakfast to get our day going. Austin is also going to make some of his famous eggs (seriously he is the BEST egg cooker).
FIVE – My second Bird Nest Box from Deja Vu came in the mail this week, and it contained a cute tumbler that I’m loving (it has a bird on it, of course I love it). It also had a super cute necklace, but my necklace arrived broken in TWO different places – such a disappointment! Last month my necklace was broken, but I managed to fix it and it is now wearable. This one I cannot fix though. After two broken ones in a row, I emailed the store to let them know about the problem, and I got a very quick and nice response from the online store manager, Amy, who said she is sending me out two new necklaces today since I’ve received two broken ones in the past. Hopefully those arrive here safe, sound, and soon!
