Friday Favs {or Hallejuah it's FRIDAY!!!}

Happy Day to my Peeps!! A humongous hug all around to all of you read and commented on my story. I am a bit embarrassed for sharing that with I said yesterday I don't like talking about it. HOWEVER, it was therapeutic for  me and Lacie, it sounds like maybe your Dad is looking for some relief. If my story helps someone then that is why I told it!!!:) Also just so you know...this is the first day in a week I have woke up without any pain anywhere {not even a glimmer}!! The energy I have is AMAZING!! Whoo Hoo!!:)

Okay...on with Friday Favs...

1. Today is the LAST DAY OF SCHOOL for my kiddos! So happy about that. Summer is just so much fun...having them home, swimming, late night horror flicks. FUN! The sad part of today is my son is already finished with his first year of HS and Em begins her last year of middle school. How did that happen?

2. Contacts Lens. Yep. I am so crazy about them this week. You see, we have had several BIG medical bills to pay this spring so I kept putting my eye exam and new contacts off. Since February I have been wearing my glasses {which I don't enjoy}. Yesterday I went in for my exam and contacts! So thankful to have them back:)

3. My clean bedroom. Try as I might my bedroom somehow always ends up the dumping ground for our clothes and my paper and magazines. I was getting so tired of going to bed at night surrounded by reminders of what I had to still get done. So Wednesday I made a decision and a promise to myself. No more papers or piles of old magazines or clothes lying around allowed in my room. None. Zero. Gone. I put every item of clothing in our closet then gathered up the various baskets of papers and put them in my office. I dusted everything, vacuumed and cleaned our bathroom. It was so nice going to bed last night in a clean and uncluttered space. Doing this has inspired me to totally re-do our home office. Be on the lookout for the "Before" photos here as well as step by step photos of how I re-organize and sort everything from our papers, to Em's sewing area to my creative writing area. Can't wait to begin!!

4.  My last Friday Fave today is my friend Angie's Blog along with several blogs from her blogroll. I continue to be inspired by her "treasures" as well as her decorating ideas. Her blog is what inspired me to get our bedroom spruced up and now our home office. Thanks Ang!!:)

I never did share my WORD with you from last week and to be honest I'm not sure which one to choose at the moment. It will have to wait:)
