I should start today’s Friday Favorites post with saying my son is home from his teen tour. I picked him up from the airport yesterday!
Final snapchat map — this one really made me laugh when my friend sent it to me. We will miss tracking the kids!
If it feels as though my son had just left for his teen tour, please realize it’s already been a month.
Where did the time go? How did July move so fast? What the heck did I actually do in my free time? Why didn’t I have the carpets cleaned as planned? Why didn’t I fully clean out and organize the hall closet?
Rather than attempt to answer those questions, let’s just say that he had an amazing time and experienced a whole lot of states and places on the west coast. These teen tour years are so incredible and he has memories now for a lifetime. I’m beyond grateful that I was able to give him this opportunity on my own and we are already discussing where he will go next year. Not that I was ready to hear Hawaii and Alaska but I will deal with it if that’s what happens. That’s far!
Before moving on to a few favorites, please know that I already have his laundry washed and folded. I do not mess around!
I think I’m just going to go with an overall feeling of loving how flexible my workout routine is right now. That’s what I was thinking about during my run yesterday. Long gone are the weekday runs of 8 miles because it’s what I always did meaning it was what I had to continue to do. Now I just go with it, usually running 5, sometimes less, sometimes not at all, and really loving to walk more than ever before.
I remain so thankful that I dropped that shampoo bottle on my foot New Year’s Eve because it completely changed the course of this year for me in a really positive way.
Still thinking about the black out cake from dinner the other night. Love the rich fudge frosting!
So I randomly pulled a pair of black lace shorts of out my drawer yesterday. I haven’t worn them in two years and maybe only wore them once in the past. It’s always fun to find something in your drawers to realize you really like it now!
Throughout all of my closet clean outs, this denim shirt has stayed because I always knew it was a classic. I have gone years without wearing it and then bring it back as a regular.
Ready for a Friday Flashback?
I wore that very same denim shirt in this picture taken (I think) the night before my wedding in November 2001! That’s my dog Cindy. 🙂

3 things you plan to do this weekend?
How often do you clean out your closets? Are there certain things you keep for years because you know you will always want to wear it?
