Instagramming-It, Loving-It Friday

Here are things I'm loving and some randomness from this week .. 
this bowl of oatmeal. I love a good  bowl of oatmeal
with my coffee in the mornings.

This magazine came in my mailbox Wednesday.. and I was all smiles cause of my infatuation 
with getting mail. I thought my friend Jess had sent it so I text'd her 
to tell her how happy I was_ only to have her tell me she didn't send, then I had to 
text and apologize for texting to begin with and try to explain... I  love her.
She's been in my life since the 8th grade. She commented on my blonde hair the first day of school which was a bad job of bleach_blonde. But still she decided to be my friend. She 's seen my ugliness, the good, bad, and everything in between. And still she chooses to be my friend.

I'm loving time together with Jode as we ride in the car..
usually the kids are quiet, we're all confined to a small space,
and we get to just talk_ we like connecting while driving & I like getting to hold  his hand.

I'm loving blueberries...I tried a new recipe this week.
I think it was called Strawberry Lemonade bars only I didn't have strawberries
so I made them with blueberries. They were good but a little tart..
the kids mouths were drawing up_squinching face_ eyes watering_
all the while saying "they're good mom, really"...

And my Middle wants to start wearing make-up..& wants to shave her legs.. 
oh you know, cause everyone else is doing it. Like her friend across the street. 
I'm loving that she wants to do these things because I know it's just part of life and I remember when I first shaved my legs and how big of a deal it was for me.
But I'm also like, everything just needs to slow down..
I feel like this growing up thing is going way too fast.
I'm also loving that we let her put on make-up while playing around the house and later 
we find lots of pictures taken of her with our iphones...  :)
She's going to love all of these in a few years...

This is what I'm loving and what's been on my heart...
What's been on yours??
