Friday Favorites – 4/20/18

It’s Friday! We have had a great week of celebrating great things, but it has left me a little sleep deprived!  I have a short post for today, so here we go. I am linking up with Erika, Narci, and Andrea for Friday Favorites!


Favorite 1 – 7!!  Here is my favorite 7 year old! Luke’s birthday was yesterday and we celebrated him all day!  He picked breakfast, Jeff joined him for lunch in the cafeteria, and then we went out for a delicious Mexican dinner.  He is my giggly, jumping, sound effects buddy! We love our Luke!


Birthday Lunch!


While they sing to you on your birthday, one of the waiters at the restaurant puts some whipped cream on your face. It’s a Parsons Family favorite!


Luke’s 7th birthday collage. That smiling boy on April 19th from just born to 7!

Favorite 2 – Books! I shared my favorite author’s summer books on Tuesday and am already chomping at the bit to read them. But, like I said on Tuesday, I wait until school is out so I can fully enjoy them!  Only 39 school days until I will be a Summer Beach Reader! Not that I am counting down or anything…


This is my favorite! A good beach read, Mary Alice Monroe’s Beach House Series #4, sunshine, and the beach!


I can’t wait to get this one on Saturday!

Favorite 3 – Baseball! Jack had his first complete travel baseball game on Wednesday.  The Cardinals won!! He was very excited and we are so proud of him!  Luke had a great game on Saturday with the Muckdogs!



Favorite 4 – Sunshine! The weather this month has been challenging! It has been raining or cold a ton.  Spring sports aren’t quite as fun when it is raining or cold, but we have gotten a few glimmers of sunshine and that is wonderful! I am looking forward to the sun sticking around!! Saturday was beautiful for a run and baseball!


Saturday’s Wildflower virtual run


Favorite 5 – TAPER! I am officially tapered and ready to run half-marathon number 3! The girls and I hit the road tonight for our half-marathon. We have been training for a few months and we are ready!  We are running a short boardwalk mile tonight to keep my streak alive (day 475), a 5k tomorrow, and the half-marathon on Sunday. Watch out Coastal Delaware Running Festival, here we come!!


Half – Marathon 1 – I was so excited to put that 13.1 magnet on my car!




Half – Marathon 2 – I did it, again!!

That’s it for this week!  Have a great weekend full of sunshine and books! If you are in the mood to send some cheers out into the universe on Sunday morning, I can think of at least 5 runners that would really appreciate it!!
