I love Fridays, I love thank you notes, and I love Jimmy Fallon’s Thank You Notes, so, naturally, Friday here on my blog means:
Thank You Notes and Jimmy Fallon!
Jimmy Fallon’s Thank You Notes
Thank You Notes
I was running a bit behind, so I thought if you guys wouldn’t mind I’d write out my weekly thank you notes. Do y’all mind? Of course you don’t, you’re here. THANK YOU! 🙂
This is a super late thank you note: Thank you, Influenster, for my husband’s complimentary yummy smelling cologne. Have you smelled Ralph Lauren’s Polo Blue fragrance, it smells divine! 🙂
(I received the cologne complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.)
Thank you, sweet teachers at my daughter’s new ::gulp:: high school, for thinking I’m a student. I think I’m going to love this school!! 🙂
Thank you, Rosie, for interviewing me for your Fierce Friday series!!!
Thank you, Nancy, for the Instagram LOVE!! You’re too sweet!!!

A Big Fat Thank You to SUMMER! 🙂
“This strangely still pause between summer and autumn, greenery and gold, and the heat and rising wind that is once again readying itself to rush it all away in a climactic symphony of color and scent is ~ in my opinion, one of the best parts of living on earth.” – Victoria Erickson ????? #wordsmith #wordsmakemyday
This quote by Victoria Erickson, is everything! As much as I’m sad to lose summer to fall, I’m happy to meet fall with a big fat sloppy kiss. Cheers to summer. 🙂
Summertime and the mothering ain’t easy, but today was pretty darn rad. 1) Take baby girl & baby boy to park. 2) Load them up on ice cream ??? 3) Take a car usie(?) in the Starbucks line. (I earned it. ☕️?? It was tea for me today.) 4) Walk around town with the rest of the familia looking for Waldo, or as my husband calls it analog Where’s Waldo Go. 5) Make a healthy & delicious dinner with your partner in crime, because remember the kids ate their weight in ice cream. ? 6) Tuck the babies into bed and have your heart melted: “Mommy, thank you for making my life better.” ? I can’t wait to do it all over again… forever! #MomDotMe #MomLifeIsTheBestLife
Thank you, summer, for crafting memories with my tribe.
Some weekends are spent creating. ? ? Saturday we had grand plans to celebrate our 1 year anniversary of being here, but we all ended up getting caught up painting, drawing, and writing. You can’t stifle creativity that shizzz gots to flow, yo! ? We made up for it yesterday and went out and enjoyed the return of beautiful (almost fall-like) weather. ANNND there was Korean food too! ? Mini clay concha cred: My ten year old baby girl.
And for adventures big and small.
And really, really, good fruit!
Thank you, summer for imagination and more creativity.
For celebrations and love.
When you play hard, you nap hard. ? ************************************** It’s Day 9 of #creativemomlife hosted by @linkouture & co-hosted by me ? Today’s photo challenge prompt is ▶️PLAY. My family & I have played/partied all weekend. We’re still celebrating our little man’s golden birthday. ? What do you or your kids like to play? Share in the comments below or why not join the IG Challenge. ?
And that fun Instagram challenge with my dear friend, Bev. 🙂
It’s DAY 1 of #CreativeMomLife hosted by my lovely friend @Linkouture and yours truly. ? Today’s prompt is About Me. I’m usually the worst when it comes to talking about myself. I know I blog about my life, which is cool, but ummm if you check my About Me page ::::crickets:::? Anyway, here goes nothing! 🙂 Hi. ?? I’m Dean. Dean is not my real name, however it’s what close friends and family call me. 🙂 ?Speaking of family… I’m married to my best friend. We’re about to celebrate 15 years of marriage. ???I have three kiddos that fill me with laughter and love each day. ?I am a lover of many things but most importantly my family and friends. ✨I’m a believer in KINDNESS. I have faith that good will always prevail. ?Happy Mail is my love language. ⭐️I’m a misplaced Texan. I’ve lived in Germany, Texas, Illinois, South Carolina, and now Washington. ☕️Coffee, kindness, and L?VE fuel me. ? Writing, painting, and creating helped pull me out of the gray. ?As mentioned above I have a blog. Mrs. AOK, A Work In Progress, has been a creative outlet for me, and I LOVE IT! ??AOK are my initials. ? I’m a wannabe photographer. ✍️I love to write, doodle, Zentangle, watercolor, and try my hand at handlettering. ?I have a super obsession with notebooks, journals, markers, stamps, sugar skulls and all things Frida. I’d love to hear about you! Share a little bit about yourself in the comments or join the challenge using the #CreativeMomLife. Do you have a friend who would like this challenge, tag ’em! Happy Friday and Happy July!!??
Thank you, summer, for sharing stories old and new.
Is it too late for #MCM? I’ve been crushin’ on this man for *almost* 16 years! I wrote about him & a few of my other heroes on my blog. C’mon over and check out my post, please. ? #linkinbio ********************************** I told you there would be ice cream trips… ? I’ll just take pictures. #fathersday
Thank you, summer, for multiple trips to the library and good books. 🙂
This. ? It’s the little things in life, amiright? Like a quiet clean house filled with reading kiddos. ?? Did you hear me?!? CLEAN house, QUIET kiddos, READING ??? •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I hope my babies look back on their childhood summers with fond memories. I hope they remember that although they physically didn’t travel every summer, they always traveled. It’s my hope that they remember the countless visits to the library for stacks of books and do the same for their (very far distant future) kids. I do not have that childhood memory. However, I’ll always remember purchasing the newest Baby-Sitters Club, Goosebumps, or Judy Blume books, and locking myself away to gobble it up. What was one of your favorite book series as a kid?
Umm.. I think it’s pretty safe to say this has been one of the best mail weeks EVER!!!!! My sweet friend @lexisuba sent me a “just because happy mail package” filled with goodies.
