 Welcome back to What's Up Wednesday, friends! It is the first WUW of the summer for us here in Mckinney and I'm pretty dang excited. School let out really early for us this year (May 21st) because our district decided to add on 7 minutes to each school day so we could get out a week earlier. #genius 

I think we are all fully on board with this plan for next year as well.

I feel like I have SO MUCH I want to blog about but just never get around to it so I'm going to see what all I can squeeze in here today. Want to know a secret? Blog posts take me HOURS to do. 😂 I'm pretty sure it should not take that long for normal people but for me, it does. It doesn't help that I can be a little wordy (I write how I talk--out loud and in my head...) and that I get easily distracted (my browser currently has 33 tabs open). But when I say hours I don't mean like 2. I mean like 4....on a good day.

If you're new around here, hi and welcome! On the last month of every Wednesday, I link up with my friends Sheaffer and Shay and we chat about what we've been up to this month in all kinds of areas-food, fashion, fun, family, and everything in between. 

(UPDATE: Someone pointed out my "last month of every Wednesday" mistake above and after a really good laugh, I've decided to leave it. Too funny. 🤣)

Right. Ok, let's get into it, shall we?!

 You guys! It has been a whirlwind of a week over here! School is OUT!! Mason "graduated" (or whatever they call it) from 5th grade and is now a middle-schooler! And my firstborn baby turned 13! I have a teenager, y'all! What the actual heck?!! Am I even old enough for that?! 

(🤣 Don't answer that.)

I'm going to save the graduation and birthday stuff for their own full posts next week and today I'm going to focus on Friday Favorites!

Do you see what I see, friends? The finish line. That's what I see. We are 4 days away from SUMMER BREAK and I'm over here bouncing back and forth between super pumped and super sad. Pumped because SUMMER of course but sad because our family is saying goodbye to the elementary school that we have loved and been a part of for the last 8 years. Mason is "graduating" from 5th grade this week and then that's it. I'll officially have 2 middle-schoolers and as if they weren't enough to make me sob into my pillow, on Wednesday, one of those will become an official TEENAGER. 😩😩😩 #makeitstop

Seriously. If you need me, I'll be curled up in the fetal position crying on the floor of my closet. It's too much.

Happy Tuesday, friends! 

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I had a very relaxing couple of days where I got basically nothing productive accomplished other than a couple of loads of laundry and I took some new product pictures for the Etsy shop. As much as I hate wasting a weekend, I felt like it was exactly how I wanted to celebrate Mother's Day weekend this time around so I'm glad I didn't push myself to get all the things on my list done.

Here's a quick recap of the weekend. :)

Friday after school, Mason came riding up the driveway on his scooter carrying a crape myrtle! Every year, each 5th grader in Mckinney ISD is gifted a crape myrtle just in time for Mother's Day. How cool is that?! Matthew's is planted out in our backyard and is somehow thriving even after that super harsh winter storm we had. I'm hoping this one is just as tough because I tend to kill all the plants under my supervision. (Except weeds. They seem to love me.)

Hello Friday and Happy Early Mother's Day to all you mamas out there!!

Oh my gosh, is this not the most accurate meme ever?! I feel this in my soul. Wouldn't trade it for a second but my soul. 😂😂😂
