Saturday Sun!

It is most certainly cold and rainy in Ohio today, but that won't keep me from spreading a lil' sunshine to all my awesome blog friends! (You guys DO know you're awesome right?!) I feel like I've got SO MUCH to be happy about right now... I just wanna shout it from the, blogtops?!

See this BEAUTIFUL gal?! 
Amanda is one of my BFFs from college, and you will not FIND a more genuine person on this earth. We used to live 5 hours apart (wah!) but in just a matter of weeks, this gal will only be TWO HOURS from me now!!! I have literally been spazzing out ever since she told me yesterday that she got a new job and would be moving. Two hours is SO much more doable than five and I am OVERJOYED at how much more often we'll be able to see each other.

We also are birthday buddies-- April 19th for her and April 20th for me and I'm thinking a joint 
celebration is definitely in order ;)
We got to celebrate out 25th together last year!!

You know what else is great? Busying myself ALL morning with taking down our Christmas decorations. Yes, yes it has to be done... but the timing is great. There is this small NFL game today at 4:30 that I'm having slight anxiety issues over, so having something to until then? Perfect!

And a third thing... My Erin Condren planner has FINALLY shipped. I have been going INSANE without a planner to write all my crazy schedules in.... and my pretty pens want used like you wouldn't believe! ;)

And last but not least--- outtakes of family photo attempts MAY be the funniest/sunniest thing to look at!!
Jared got a lil snap-crazzzzy with the cam and what should have been just a simple sister shot...
...turned into weirdly similar sister shoot of silliness.
I mean... could we (and our tonsils) look anymore alike right here?!

Happy "sunny" Saturday to you all. No matter what the actual weather might look like.
What's bringing some sunshine to you this weekend??


  1. That's exciting about your BFF! Cute pics, happy weekend!

  2. I love that quote about sunshine! So true! So glad your BFF is moving closer!
    I'm taking down our xmas stuff today too. Thats always the worst... at least you'll have that game to watch!
    I got my Erin Condren planner for Christmas and was ITCHING for it to be January 1st so I could start writing in it...
    I literally could not wait.. so I started writing in birthdays and anniversaries the day I got it!

  3. It's always such good news when people you love move closer! You have to let me know how much you love your planner when it comes in. I look at them/drool over them all the time online, but can't decide if I want to splurge on it.
    And your picture outtakes? The. best. You and your sister are precious.

  4. The outtakes are great! My sister and I look nothing alike either! ;)

  5. Bahahah those outtakes are great! My Erin Condren planner shipped too! But it shipped last thursday and it STILL has not arrived!! Ugh. I'm checking the mail obsessively. I can't wait to see your cover!!

  6. Like I've said before, I'm not a sports fan, but I am expecting to hear who wins the game this evening. :)

    Also, just wanted to let you know that you can stop following me at Life as Mrs Skinner and start following me at Texas Mrs: . I had to get a new blog due to my email address. Thanks!

  7. So exciting your friend is moving so close! YAY! :) :) :) Love the pics!

  8. I'm glad you have something to keep your brain busy until the game. Haha. Go Bengals!

  9. Yay for your friend moving closer. That is awesome :)

    And WHO DEY!!!! I'm right there with ya! Ready to get this show on the road...and have the boys in black and orange bring home a victory!!

    Happy Saturday!

  10. Too cute!! Love the sister photos :) I still haven't ordered an Erin Condren planner - whattt is taking me so long?!

  11. I see snow and I'm so jealous :(

  12. To be honest.... I don't even like football on TV but my hubby had the game on today when I got home and I sat and watched the entire 2nd half of the game because my Bloggy Buddy is a Bengals fan. Sorry about the game :(

  13. So exciting! I wish my best friends were closer :)

    I'm being such a slacker when it comes to taking down our Christmas decorations. I just don't want to say bye, ha. My husband made a deal with me ... They can't stay passed Tuesday. It's going to be a sad day when it's all gone.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  14. Jake does the same thing when he's taking pictures for me! He'll take like 17 and they're all horrible but one. HAHA
