Happy Friday lovelies!!! I'm so excited the weekend is finally here :) 



We have had a crazy weather week here in KY!  Like tornado sirens, lots of hail and horrible flooding kind of weather.  I went home for lunch the other day and right before I needed to leave Jared told me to stay put for a few minutes.  Cue a huge hail storm (you can see it destroyed our rose bush)!  I have never seen hail as big as what was coming down and when we left (J took me back to work) my SUV couldn't even handle the water so we had to go back and get his truck.  The flooding was unbelievable!  Several cities had horrible damage and I'm so thankful we weren't one of those.  Better weather is coming this weekend & we are ready!


Have any of you read this book?  I started it last night and only took a break to watch the Scandal finale.  It's SO GOOD!! It was exactly what I needed to read right now and I love her tips on how her family lives a more natural lifestyle.



I saw this quote on Facebook the other day and thought it was worth saving!  A lot of times we see people's actions or hear their words and believe the worst about them.  Believing the best about someone helps you to look at them in a better light and keeps your mind more positive.  Just something I'm trying to keep in mind when dealing with people that just aren't my favorite!  I don't think it's always going to work, sometimes there are just people who aren't your jam and never will be but hopefully it will make being around them have less of a negative affect on my mindset. 




Last weekend was definitely a favorite!  Catch the recap here.





Several of you asked about my Derby Pie recipe that I talked about earlier this week!  You can find it under the recipes label!





 Hope everyone has a great weekend!

  1. We had an insane thunderstorm come through yesterday afternoon with 45 mph winds--it was crazy seeing all of the things knocked over and out in the roads. I hope you get some sun soon! And I have K. Cav's book and really enjoyed it! I tried making her cookies---they did not turn out well for me. I want to give another one of her recipes a shot though!
