Friday Favorites

It's Friday!!  I'm linking up with ErikaNarci and Andrea to share my Friday Favorites.

{one}  Favorite buy... When my SIL Erica was in town for Easter she told me she had heard good things about Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polish.  It's advertised to last up to 14 days so I was eager to give it a go.  Verdict: I am VERY impressed.  It didn't last two full weeks but I went 9 days without any chipping.  I applied the gel topcoat to my gold OPI and it seemed to make that polish last longer too.  I'll be buying more shades :)  
SH Gel Color: Pink Up

 {two}  Monday night, my favorite ladies from Junior Civic had a lot of fun at our spring party.  We went to the local art gallery and had a painting and wine pARTy.  Seriously, so much fun!!  It's so nice that we have such a fun thing in our little town.

 {three}  Favorite moments... The little cowboys have been doing so well playing together lately.  Over the years we have accumulated so many toys and it seems that they don't play with anything for than more than five minutes and it drives me crazy.  But over the last few weeks something has changed.  These two are all about going down to the basement and setting up elaborate farms and will actually play well together.  It makes my heart smile and I love that they are using their imaginations.  Kallahan has always been "a player" and I think he's taught Keeler.  Backwards, I know. 

Ahoy there matey!!
{four}  My favorite pirate!  Today was Pirate Day in Keeler's kindergarten class.  He's been looking forward to this day for a while.  He told me this morning, "I'm Captain Keeler, aarrgghh!!"  
I'd like to say that his costume is all DIY but this mommy just used Amazon Prime and ordered this Melissa and Doug costume last week.  The little cowboys have several of the M&D role play costumes, they hold up very well and they love them.  This will be a fun addition to our collection.   

 {five}  My favorites... forever and always. 
Last weekend I was out of commission with a TERRIBLE sinus infection.  Have you ever had one that in addition to the bad headache made your teeth hurt?  It killed me to simply turn my head so I pretty much stayed in bed all weekend.  I never do that and I hated it.  Anywho, Tyler really stepped up and made life easier.  He did the grocery shopping and hosted a fun pizza making night.  How did I get so lucky?

This weekend we're looking forward to more cattle branding and I'm working our local business expo - which is always fun.  It's very dry in our area and we keep missing out on any chance of rain {nothing new}, so we're all praying for rain!
