Hallelujah and amen! Friday is here, friends!
I’m linking up again with Darci, Natasha, and friends for Five on Friday! I really enjoyed this link up last week, and thought I’d do it again and take the opportunity to share five things that I’m loving this week!
1. Lennon and Maisy Stella
For the past few weeks, the boys and I have been obsessed with Lennon and Maisy Stella. If I need a little pick-me-up, I just go to their You Tube channel and listen to their perfect harmonies. I may never hear the Lumineers again without wishing it was Lennon and Maisy singing instead. And I really like the Lumineers!
I just think these girls are fantastic, and I love them on Nashville.
Their cover of “Call Your Girlfriend” is just fantastic! Enjoy!
2. Oh The Places You’ll Go
A few weeks ago, I repinned this pin, which also happened to get repinned a few times. But anyway… the idea is that you get a copy of a good “life” book for your kids. I like Dr. Seuss’s, “Oh The Places You’ll Go.” So I got a copy of the book for Hudson and Hayes, and on the last day of school I asked their teachers to all sign the inside of the book and write messages to the boys.
I just love this idea so much, and the idea is that all of their teachers from now until they finish high school can sign the book! (Mel from The Larson Lingo also blogged about this yesterday and she did it for her kids, too.)
3. A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet by Sophie Hudson
So Boo Mama’s book is finally out! And I can tell you that if I have any moments of free time this weekend I will be reading this book! I just love Sophie’s writing voice and love her stories of the south and of family. She writes with so much heart and humor. Get this book!
4. Swim Lessons
Hudson had swim lessons this week. He did a fantastic job! This is his fourth summer to take them from the same guy and this year he wasn’t even remotely scared or nervous. We still have one more week of lessons and I am just so excited to see how well he does at the end of that week! I forgot my big camera at lessons yesterday and I only have a couple of not-so-great iPhone photos.
5. Vitamin C- Graduation
I was texting with my friend, Kristen, last night and we were sharing our mutual love for Carrie Underwood’s new song, “See You Again.” (A seriously fantastic song.) And we thought it was so smart of her to time the release with graduation time, because the lyrics are perfect for a graduation song.
When I finished high school in 2000 (I still want to say it like Conan O’Brien and sing, “In the year 2000.”), the song “Graduation” by Vitamin C was very popular. I mean…. I really have no words. I am pretty sure we thought it was a good song, and now I’m just rolling my eyes at my 17-year-old self. What unfortunate music choices we had.
What was the graduation song on the radio when you graduated? Our class exited the graduation auditorium to Jimmy Buffett’s “Changes in Attitudes, Changes in Latitudes.”
