Once In A TGIF, What I Know For Sure & #iPPP

It's been a long week.  It's been an emotional week.  It's been up, it's been down. Issues I thought I'd dealt with hit me hard and knocked the wind out of me a little.  This has been the kind of week that has me saying TGIF.  
This is a sign that Wade and I made for Tim after he had a particularly bad week.
We saved it and bust it out every once in a TGIF.

I usually don't say such silly things because duh, I'm a stay-at-home mom and just because it's Friday doesn't mean my work week ends.  I'm always at work.  Waaaa.  But after an exhausting week with crappy weather I am TGIF-ing all over the place. 

Weekends do mean a break from homework and school drama for the kids.  Saturday mornings mean I can stay in bed and let the kids watch multiple episodes of Jessie on the Disney channel(which I most definitely don't mind sleeping through).   Weekends have their perks and I could handle a few perks right about now.  

So bring it on weekend, I'm ready.  TGIF is what I know for sure right now.

Here's what else I know for sure (right now):

  • Sure the kids love their iPads and video games, but sometimes the classics are the best.  Wade got an electronic football game for his birthday and my kids (and my husband) have had so much fun with it.

  • Speaking of football, I have concerns and I am conflicted about my own sons playing.  But I also have a confession.  Check out my sports mom confession in my latest vlog:

  • You don't have to be a kid to look cool in a fake tattoo.  Funding issues have delayed my quest for a real tattoo, but I've found an awesome alternative that I'm getting for only $2.  Check out this website, her art is beautiful.

  • I will never not wait until the last minute for everything, it's just who I am.  Halloween is next week and of course we are just now shopping for costumes.  Our pumpkin patch tradition is going to have to happen between football and baseball games this weekend because well, this is the last chance.
I tried to convince Wade that this was the best costume ever because oh my god, look how cute he is. But he wasn't so sure.

  • I can't wait to watch this Sunday's The Good Wife.  Many of my favorite shows have been sort of disappointing so far this season.  But The Good Wife is finally good again and this Sunday's episode is going to be the bomb.  Just one more reason I'm TGIF-ing.

What do you know for sure (this week)? C'mon, we're friends, share what you know. 

What has you TGIF-ing?

All the pictures in this post were taken with my phone.

I'm linking up today with my friends Greta from and Sarah from for the #iPPP link up.  They host a link up where they encourage people to share "your funny, your yummy, your heartfelt, your favorite photos of the week" from our phones. 

Check them out.


  1. Oh, CRAP! I have to look up now when the pumpkin patches close! Shoot. My husband worked entirely TOO MUCH this month (and last) and I'm gonna be pissed if we miss it. Sorry, tangent.

    I'm sorry you had an emotional week. I was thinking about you this week...not sure why, just did. So know that. :)

  2. Sigh, I don't think the pumpkin patch is going to happen for us this year. Which is really bugging me because we've NEVER missed. NEVER. What I know for sure is never say never. ps I love that you made that sign. How sweet and supportive of you! xo.
