Hello, Friday!

Happy Friday, my friends!

I can't wait for this morning to be over.  Kindergarten registration is at 10 AM and it's way more stressful than it should be!  I filled out all the paperwork and gathered up the required documents, but I'm still worried I'm going to forget something and be turned away. I truly don't remember being this anxious when I registered my two older kids!

Not only will I be driving all over the place before I even make it to registration, but then I have to keep my active toddler happy until our number is called to register. I'm DREADING it, but lots of caffeine (and perhaps a donut) should help!

After that, I'm looking forward to approximately 10 loads of laundry, building a bunk bed, and completely organizing and rearranging a bedroom. Mom life is so glamorous at times!

My weekend isn't going to be very exciting, but here are a few things that I AM excited about:

{ONE}

The Gilmore Girls Revival on Netflix! Gilmore Girls is my favorite show of all time, so I am beyond excited about this.  As I sat down to write this post tonight, an awesome article on my homepage caught my eye. Sookie returns!!!  I'm so glad. The show just wouldn't be the same without her!

My new Hang-It-Up Key Fob and Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote. I love love LOVE them! And just in case you missed it, I'm giving away a Sling-Back Bag from Thirty-One HERE.

Mary Jane sneakers from Old Navy for Lily! They are the same material as Crocs.  They're really cute and perfect for summer!

Breakfast in "bed" prepared by my incredibly sweet 4 year old.  Two days this week, Lily treated me to breakfast in bed.  She always gives me a few pieces of fruit, a few raw vegetables, and an Oreo.  I adore this kid!

Converse!  I am planning on buying my first pair since high school, but I'm having trouble deciding on a color.  I love all white but I think that would be a terrible idea! Maybe black or navy?

 

{SIX}

Strawberry Banana Smoothies from Bolthouse Farms! These smoothies are definitely tied with Salted Caramel Lattes as my favorite. I always drink one right after I run!

{SEVEN} 

Finally, I'll leave you with a daily dose of cuteness! I'm often asked what it's like to have a child with Down syndrome, and it's a tough one to answer.  The truth is, most days I forget Liam even has Down syndrome.  He really is just like any other two year old. He's just a lot smaller. But on the other hand, he's filled with so much happiness and love, and I can't help but think that his extra chromosome just enhances those amazing characteristics!

  6. I seriously need to binge watch Gilmore Girls! I have no idea why, but I never watched it back when it originally aired and it looks like something that I would absolutely love! I really want to watch the revival on Netflix, but I need to catch up first!

  8. Let us know what color Converse you decide on! I was super on the fence about getting a pair of Converse or a pair of Skechers go walk. I loved the white but thought I would probably trash them. I ended up going with grey Skechers and love them!! Still think the Converse are super cute and would love to get a pair but that may have to wait (hello stay at home mom budget :). Have a good weekend :)

  9. I hope Kindergarten registration went well. You had me at Gilmore Girls, but I'm so glad Melissa McCarthy decided to join the revival. I was going to be sad if she didn't. I just got my first pair of converse and I love them. I ended up buying another pair when I saw them on sale.

  10. Your kids are so cute! Goodness, girl, you have a busy day planned. I'm excited about the Gilmore Girls. Although I was only a single mom for s few years, when my daughter was 2-5, I still can totally relate to their relationship. So sweet!
    I bought my first pair of converse a few months ago & got black. I like them & wear them way more than I thought I would! I'm looking at the white shoreline for the summer, though. Gray is cute, too. Have a great weekend!

  12. So much cuteness. Those Old Navy shoes are adorable. Breakfast in bed, that is the sweetest ever. What a big heart she has and totally go for black! I think they would be the most versatile.
