Friday Favorites: 3/20/15

Man, I have no idea why but this week flew by for me. I cannot believe it’s Friday already. I am headed to MN after work this afternoon to hang with my 2 favorite boys. Plan to teach BODYPUMP tomorrow morning at the Mankato YMCA (7am – come join me!!), some meal prep (chicken salad and homemade mayo), maybe take Luke to the pool and enjoy some couch time with the hubby.


My favorite thing from this week was a conversation I had with Luke while driving home from playing at the YMCA.


Luke: Mom you should close Abby’s window cause she’s cold.

Me: Oh, she’s not cold. She loves to stick her head out the window.

Luke: Why?

Me: Because she likes to sniff everything.

Luke: Why?

Me: Because God made her with a big nose perfect for sniffing everything.

Luke: <pause> Did God use big tools when he made Abby?

Me: Yup, God used big tools to make Abby.

Luke: <cautiously> did it hurt Abby?

Me: Oh no. God is very gentle when he uses his tools.

Luke: Oh ok. Did God use my tools?

Me: God has his own set of tools that are very special so that he can make Abby puppies.

Luke: Oh. I would share with him. I’m a good sharer.

Oh my goodness. My heart melted like 6 times during that conversation. Little boys are just the best. Smile


Hope you have a great one! Whatcha up to??

Linking up with Friday fun with both Heather and Clare!

  1. Aw that’s the cutest thing ever! This week flew by for me, too, since I was out of town for half of it. I’ve still got a ways to go, but then it’s time to relax. Have a great weekend!
