Praise the Lord it's Friday! Between a stomach bug and a last minute observation at work, this week was a bit much for me. We have no where to go this weekend, so I'm looking forward to relaxing with the kids & reading a book at home while Eric watches football all weekend :)
First favorite of the week? Having Monday off! My mother-in-law Nancy & my two sister-in-laws came up for the day and we had the best time! We went to Moe's & met Eric for lunch, then did some bargain shopping together. My girls just LOVE their aunts & were over the moon that they got to spend the day with them. I must say, it was nice to have extra hands on deck to help while we shopped too!
My next favorite is a total epic fail from last weekend. Every time I think about it, I laugh. Here's the background - for every competition, the coaches buy each team a themed gift. It's nothing fancy, just something small to motivate them. So last weekend's theme was "Knock Their Socks Off" and Nicole (the coach who took over my JV team for the winter season) was in charge of buying the socks. We texted back & forth on Friday as I cut out the tags to tie on each pair for the girls. She was SO excited that she found Minion socks. She texted me a picture & I thought they were cute too, so we went with it. We passed them out as normal to the girls on the bus Saturday morning & Nicole insisted that they wear them for good luck. Well.... fast forward to our performance & I'll just say that it did not go as planned. We still took second, but things that never go wrong, went haywire. As I was riding the bus home with the Varsity team, I got this text from Nicole...
She had bought them socks that said DANGER! MISHAP! FAILURE! What kind of coach does that?! We were all dying laughing because she obviously had no idea & those words actually sum up our day pretty perfectly. Next weekend - no socks.
Next favorite is John Legend's new song - Love Me Now. I cannot get enough of this song. The beat. His voice. The soul. The passion in the lyrics. I'm obsessed. I've been listening on repeat & find myself humming it all day.
Happy Weekend Friends!
