FRIDAY STARS – Your Weekly Must Knows 08/19/16

Friday Stars.13

I can’t believe we’re already at Friday again!  This week has gone by in a blur, and it may have something to do with surviving my sister-in-laws bachlorette party last weekend.  Ummmm, well maybe kinda surviving?  Last Saturday it was a high of 113 degrees *thank goodness I thought it was only 108, ha-ha*.  We were in Palm Springs (California) and after hanging out in the pool all day, we went to a yummy dinner and then went out dancing till 2am for the second night in a row.  It was so much fun, and I’m so grateful I was able to go!  The day after I flew home, then my oldest son started Kindergarten *sobs*.  I’m always amazed at how fast time flies and I continually wish there was a way to slow it down.  I’m not ready for this huge step, but he loves his teacher and his best friend is in his class, so I am beyond ecstatic for him!  I have another crazy busy weekend planned but I’m keeping my fingers crossed I can sneak in some reading.  Here’s hoping you had a great week too! ♥

So, in case you aren’t familiar with our Friday Star Posts, we like to take a look at what’s happened around here in the last week, what’s coming up that we are excited about and anything else that we may have to share!
♥ Enjoy!

Just Finished and Loved:

This last week we barely had any time to read.  And the books we did pick up, well, we weren’t the hugest fans of.  At all.  But we are keeping our fingers crossed that next weeks books are much, much better!

  1. Yikes! That’s quite the week you’ve had Jen! I’m glad you survived! And I’m so happy your son is off to have a great kindergarten experience!🙋🏻

    • I’m glad I survived too lol! The desert in California is no joke! I always thought Las Vegas was hot, but they have nothing on Palm Springs! 🙂 Oh me too, he loves it soooooo much! It makes my heart so happy! ♥

  2. I miss my pool in Florida so much! Sounds like you had a great time. Sorry to hear you disliked both books, but it happens to all of us at some point. Have a great week!

    • I miss my pool too! I grew up with a pool at my childhood home in California, but my parents just sold that house last month to move closer to me and my little family. I wish they had a pool here too, they’re so much fun! Wishing you a great week too!
