Friday Favorites || At 11:59 pm

Nothing like Friday Favorites at 11:59 pm!  That's kind of been the theme of this week.  You get things done, but just by the hair of your chinny chin chin.  Not for lack of planning, because the good Lord knows this girl has to plan things out to accomplish a n y t h i n g, but for lack of minutes in the day!  

This time tomorrow my little family will be complete again!:)  Not just that (which is enough to make me the happiest), but we will be sailing away on a big boat.  Far away from the craziness that is life with a little time to just "be" & enjoy each other.  Man, that sounds good after the blur of the past couple of weeks!

I want to apologize for the lack of posting here lately.  I'm still trying to find my way through being a mommy of two (while daddy is hundreds of miles away).  Our life has been the craziest it's ever been right now with much uncertainty- so bear with me.  I promise I will figure things out & be more consistent in posting:)  I haven't forgotten my ole' P & P corner of the web!

What are some of the highlights of the past few weeks?  Hmmmmm...
1.  Downtown Wilmington.  For some reason, I can't get this cute little place off of my mind.  When I think back to my time there, I feel like I was kind of sent back in time to a Nicholas Sparks movie.  Either that, or like I was walking the neighborhood of Hocus Pocus (then again, we did go on a ghost walk).  If you go there, you m u s t check out the Children's Museum & Java Dog! (If you have kids & a dog that is...)  If you don't, go to Betsy's Crepes.  You're welcome.
As on the departure of a n y w h e r e we go, tears.
While at the Children's Museum of Wilmington, Cam was a dentist, puppet, astronaut, scientist, pirate, railroad engineer, sailor, marine life observer, shopper, checker outer, driver, and most importantly...a weatherman!

2.  Bible School...Check!  It's a week that I look forward to, but also like to see come to an end.  I co-taught the nursery again this year, ages 0-3.  Cam enjoyed it soooo much.  I think this has been the first year that he really understands what's going on.  He counted down the hours each day & cried tonight at commencement because we didn't get to go to class after the opening assembly.  S u r e, some nights I could have confused him with a rabid wild animal, but all the same, we are making it day by day through the threenager phase.

3.  Packing for Four.  Well, sort of.  Well...come to think of it, absolutely!  
I've been packing not only for the cruise, but for our house as well.  I learned last week that renters (potential buyers) will be moving into our home July 1.  In the same week.  The same week as Bible School, too!  What (and how???) do(es) I  my husband get me myself  into these type of situations?

4.  Working at the Nursing Home again.  I'll say going back to this population definitely reminded me that I am still called to serve the kid population, but gave me a giggle or two!  One of my client's roommates cussed me out for turning the light on during breakfast & another told me I had lost weight & was skinny as a rail (she'd only seen me one other time 2 days before).  

Scratch that, can I work here everyday?? ;) 

And I can't forget to mention one of my dementia clients told me he was talking on the phone to Shirley Temple and whispered that he & I were running away together to the nurse & to never tell a n y o n e what had happened #neveradullmoment

5.  Old Navy Boy Clothes.  Spot on boy moms.  If you are looking for some cute summer duds at a good price look no further.  And oh the sales!  I stocked up before packing for the cruise last week.

On a random note, did you guys know it was national selfie day this week?  I really hate selfies.
And that's a wrap!  I hope you all had a great week!  Here's to hoping for some free wifi (dreaming, right?) to check in from the wide open seas;)  Have a fun weekend!
