week in review...

A bunch of {mostly phone} pics from our week...

Teacher Treat Wednesday
Coordinated by the PTA, every Wednesday a small group of parents at Grace's elementary school provides lunch for all the teachers...I love that we do this! I don't think we can ever do enough to thank teachers for what they do to nurture, teach, and encourage our littles. This week it was our turn...six of my fellow kindergarten moms and I set up brunch for the faculty...
Pancake skewers, donuts, sausage balls, pigs in a blanket, blueberry muffins, and cinammon sugar pretzels - yummmmmmmmmmm!
We even had a couple of drawings for door prizes...these beautiful flowers and several others!
And while I was there setting things up I was able to sneak away and have lunch with my favorite girl!!
Target Shopping
Lovin' these jumbo stripey straws...milkshakes anyone?
And oh my, is this tape not the cutest??!
Spring Cleaning
Spent 4 hrs. cleaning 1 bathroom that was cleaned 2 weeks ago. I think I've gone mad.
Sewing Club
Oh, I can't stand the cuteness of these sweet chevron dresses my friend Ashleigh made for her girls for Valentine's Day!!
LOVE the adorable pincushion our sweet friend Sara surprised us with!!  Thank you, Sara!! 
Friday's sewing club was all about knits. Knit Leggings to be exact. Ashleigh taught us how to make cute leggings like these...
Sara made these adorable ones for her sweetie Emma!
And I was super proud to even just tweak a pair by adding this ruffle - ha!  My first time to sew with knit - woo hoo!
I love spending time with these sweet girls! Thank you for hosting us every month, Ashleigh!!!
Lulu & Co.
Orders mailed...
Happy 6th Birthday, Solomon!
Heart Thief
A couple of nights ago I was putting this little fella to bed when he told me this...
Hudson: I'm so glad that Jesus gave me my two girls.
Me: Who are your two girls?
Hudson: Grace and you, Mama!
This little boy melts my heart every single day!! He has a heart of gold. LOooove him!!
Opened his school folder and found this...
Sooooo proud of this big accomplishment, Hudson! Way to go!!!
Girl Time
A couple of hours of shopping followed by uninterrupted adult conversation at Barnes & Noble with my mom...priceless! Came home with these...
Penny Wishes
Lunch with my favorite peeps after church today and then this...
There's something about making penny wishes, isn't there?
Joy. Pure joy!
Opposites Attract
This is sooo them...
I sure do have a serious crush on Easter candy-colored shoes this year...
Hope you had a great week too!

I just love your blog and this post has me longing for spring. So many fun colors!! Can I ask where you got those fun straws? I have never seen the chunky ones before. Prayers to you and your sweet mama. Hoping everything goes well with her surgery.

Blessings from MN-

Hi, Amy,
The chunky straws are from Target. They have them in their valentine section. $3.00 for 20.

Thank you for praying for my mom!!

Ashleigh said...

Jess! What a shout out!! Where did you find those lilac mary janes! I just bought ANOTHER chevron pattern that is tone on tone lilac/purple and both sweets MUST HAVE THOSE SHOES to match!

Love my sewing club Friday nights and all of the wonderful friends who come!

Jessica said...

Love your posts as always! You have me thinking of dusting off my sewing machine. People in my parts are saying your local fabric shop isn't stocked like it use to be and isn't worth the long drive over?? Where are ya'll finding such fun fabrics?

Your family will be in my prayers this week for sure!! The Lord has you in the palm of His hand! LOTs of Blessings!!
