It's Friday, it's Friday!
I am sitting here in the peace and quiet while the little one is resting in her room.
Drinking tea and editing pictures. Waiting for Wyatt to get home and tell me all about his Valentine's Day party at school today. I loved the Valentine's Day parties when I was in school. 
Well, really I loved making the shoebox mailboxes the most.
But anyway...you guys, he almost wore a suit to school for his party today.
Well, a suit jacket, shirt, vest and tie to be exact.
 Almost...but then he changed his mind. I didn't talk him out of it,  he decided on his own he would just wear the outfit already laid out. It was one of those things where I wasn't going to tell him he couldn't wear it,  because that's who he is, but I had a quick image in my head of kids laughing at 
him for wearing a too-big suit jacket (with shoulder pads) to school.
 I would hope no one would,  but still......the things we worry about, huh?
 Oh, I love that little boy though. He really has such a sweet heart.
*And yeah, I did say shoulder pads.

But it's Friday. Friday. The weekend is here.
And here are a few things I am loving today....

$1.99 for a big bouquet of grocery store tulips. They don't last long, but ohhhh I love tulips.

Cinnamon Dolce Latte. Yum. Normally I am not much of a latte drinker but this is good.

Blue skies. Yes it's freezing and Yes, I know I sound like a broken record. But the blue skies
 we've had this week make me so happy.

My new salt & pepper shakers. Aren't they cute? And just in time for Valentine's Day.
But just ignore my dirty kitchen window, k?

Jars. Ball jars, Mason jars, jelly jars, spice jars...any kind of jar. Full of flowers. Instant love.

Here are a few more things that I am loving this week...
these wooden rings.
this free calendar you can download here.
these adorable little aprons. love the colors! and her blog is just as cute.

And lastly, this picture of my boy....in said suit vest. And captain's hat his grandpa gave him.
 This boy loves his "costumes" and dressing up, he's quite serious about it.

Happy Friday!
Hope you all have a great weekend. Have anything fun planned?
