This isn’t going to be some awe inspiring post but I’m going to share my Friday with you…

It was a great day! It was warm and sunny…The only bad thing was that I forgot to take pictures.

I turned off my TV, my computer and used my Blackberry for phone calls only.

The morning was the toughest. Usually when I wake up I turn on the news and catch up on any shows I fell asleep for the night before while my 3 year old is still sleeping. I got started on the housework right away instead and got a lot more accomplished which was really nice.

After breakfast we made cheerios necklaces then set off to Kohl’s so my girl’s could spend their gift cards. We met my mom and sister for lunch at Panera Bread (yummy! Got some bagels for the weekend too) and walked around the mall. We spent the rest of the afternoon playing outside, driving the John Deere power wheel tractor, playing on the swing set and drawing with chalk on the driveway. Then my mother-in-law came over to babysit so hubby and I could go to the opening night/awards reception for the art show. I won 3rd place BTW. Hubby did turn on the TV after we got home from the reception but i still stayed away from the computer.

With no other distractions in life you have more time to enjoy the little things. I’m going to make a point to do this more often.

Go see how everyone else did at A Soft Place To Land.

P.S. If you haven’t tried Panera Bread’s Cinnamon Crunch bagels they are seriously yummy…and addicting!


  1. Cheerio necklaces! Thanks for that reminder--I haven't made those with my little ones in eons...they'd love doing that again! :)

    By the way, I was reading back through your blog and realized you referenced my black dresser filled with art supplies. :) Small world! :)
