Friday Favorites

Happy Friday Ladies!
Today I am linking up with Andrea, Erika and Narci for Friday Favorites!

Before I start with my faves for the week, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who has been so encouraging and supportive to me over the last two years of blogging!  I have met some truly amazing women through this crazy little blog, and I am so thankful for all the awesome women I have gotten to know!  I keep my blog pretty real, and share real life, and sometimes real life is ugly and hard, it is RARE that I will sugarcoat anything!  I have gotten a lot of harsh criticism on my blog, and people sure do have a lot to say about how I live my life and raise my kids...YIKES!  I respect that everyone has an opinion, but some comments have crossed the line, in my opinion.  There is truly no need whatsoever for such ugliness and cruelty.  My life is FAR from perfect, but it really is perfect for me.  So many of you have been so awesome and encouraging over the last two years, and I have truly loved sharing our life with you guys, and I even love the constructive criticism you all give me!  I am truly such a believer in lifting each other up and just being positive.  And when you can't find something nice or positive to say, it is usually just best to keep your mouth shut at that point!  LOL.....
So to those of you that have truly enjoyed following along with us in our crazy life, THANK YOU!  And for those that only would hate read, well, they can't anymore! 
The pineapples from our front yard are the most delicious pineapples I have ever eaten!  We have replanted a few more, so we are hoping for lots more pineapples next year!
Chico no longer needs his cone, however this crazy kid decided to wear it.  AJ and all his craziness are definitely a favorite for me!

This sweet pup has TONS of energy, so I love when he is calm and cuddly!  Chico the pup is everyone's favorite around here!

Olivia is obsessed lately with magic tricks.  She makes us laugh all the time!  Mark was so patient with her while she was showing him a gazillion magic tricks:)
AJ is tough when it comes to getting a's always a fight.  We finally convinced him last weekend that it was long overdue!  Such a handsome little guy!
Y'all it is HOT here...and I mean HOT!  Obviously we have central air, but our bedroom just cannot seem to cool down to a comfortable temperature for desperate times call for desperate measures!  We ran to WalMart and grabbed a window AC unit and now we sleep well!  ou do what you gotta do!  LOL
I am totally LOVING my new crossbody bag I got a few weeks ago, and now I am LOVING this little pouch to hold my ID, credit card and some cash.  It fits perfectly inside my little bag and still gives me room to throw a few more things in there!
Mark and I are headed to Daytona this weekend for the race!  I am super excited for an awesome weekend full of racing and fun!
Hope you all have an awesome holiday weekend!
