Friday Favorites – 1/17/20

Happy Friday! Whoa – this was our first full five day week since winter break and it is no joke! Luckily, we have a four day week next week. I am linking up with Narci and the girls to share my favorites from the week.

Favorite 1: BOOKS!! I finished my second book of 2020 this week. I read The Adults by Caroline Hulse. It was the book I gave my mom and sister for our Jolabokaflod book club. I shared our annual Jolabokaflod celebrations on Wednesday. It didn’t really go like I thought it would, but I enjoyed it just the same. The book is about a divorced couple that goes away for Christmas with their young daughter and significant others. The relationships and family drama were interesting (I always love that). The book has interviews scattered throughout the book trying to figure out how an accident occurred. I give it ☀️ ☀️ ☀️ ☀️.

Favorite 2: CHEERING!! I got to cheer on my favorites this week – Jack, Luke, Jeff, and JMU!! On Saturday, Luke had a basketball game and a swim meet. I spent the day with Luke while Jeff was coaching Jack’s basketball team.While we were at the swim meet, I was following James Madison University’s football team in the FCS National Championship game. They didn’t win, but I still love ’em. People who went to JMU, love JMU!! That’s just how it is.Later that night and on Tuesday night, Jeff coached Jack’s basketball team in their games and I was there cheering them on.

Favorite 3: SUNSHINE!! On Saturday morning, the sunrise was beautiful! I probably took 30 pictures of it because every time I looked outside, the sunrise was more beautiful!On Wednesday, we had much warmer day with so much bright sunshine. Luckily, I slept in that morning, so I got to do my run outside. The kids wanted to play outside so I ran back and forth covering 3 blocks near our house. I didn’t even care because that sunshine felt so good!

Favorite 4: CLEAN DESK!! My friend Kelly announced that it was National Clean Desk Day earlier this week. I was inspired to really clean off my desk. I dusted, Cloroxed, and cleaned up. My desk feels pretty good right now!Favorite 5: SUMMER!! I officially started planning our summer this week. Looking at summer like this was a little stressful, but it was the best way for me to schedule a few camps, vacations, sports, and pool time. Our pool opens in 127 days, in case you were wondering. 😉 😎

Favorite 6: EASY DINNER!! I shared another easy dinner this week. Tex Mex Guts is a Parsons family favorite. It is easy, yummy, and can be used in a bunch of ways. I also like that it is a flexible recipe, meaning you can add whatever you have in the pantry.

That wraps up the week. We have a fun weekend planned with some sports, two 40th birthday parties, and some relaxing. I am hoping that the snow coming our way doesn’t mess up our Saturday!! Have a great weekend full of sunshine and books!
