Weekend Plans

The last weekend of March is here, and we have a few things planned. Friday is free. I have some frozen tilapia in the freezer to fix for dinner and then we will probably have a movie night with some popcorn and snacks. Saturday is free during the day, and then we will go to Mass. After that Rhett is going to the movies with a friend, Steve and I are going to dinner with friends, and Peyton and Flynn are going to hang out at home for a bit. Sunday my bestie Marian is coming up for the day! I'm thinking maybe Steve's awesome meatloaf with some mashed potatoes and cheesy broccoli for dinner. After that it will be our weekly shows to end the weekend.

Here is a look back at what we did this past week here in our country home...

We took our weekly "On the way to Mass" Snapchat on Saturday...

And woke on Sunday to what could be winter's kiss goodbye...

In the interest of being real around here, I share this picture of our family room on any given day.
Because. Life. 

And I did this on Wednesday. 
I do not look forward to this.
I have Health is a thing, trust me...
And that makes going for my mammogram very difficult.
But, I went. And am thankful I am good for another year.

When I got home, a little package awaited me!

I bought myself a gift on Etsy.
And I love it.
Look Tara! Look!

Lastly, we have this little corner upstairs that serves no purpose.
At all.
It sits empty.
Until I finally realized I didn't have to keep our dress up things in Rubbermaid tubs!
Flynn and I arranged all the dresses, costumes, crowns, wands, and accessories in an old toy chest.

We have a brand new love!

Dress up...

And we are having fun. : )

Peyton was busy on Thursday.
She baked cookies and brownies for dessert at our parish Fish Fry. : )

Remember this, my friends...

Have a wonderful, cozy weekend, my friends!
Thanks for visiting.

Your little princess will love it for sure! Have a fabulous weekend my friend! Love your little cup too! How cute! Happy Friday! xo

  2. Hi Billie Jo~

    Sounds like you have a wonderful plan in place for your week-end...wonderful and filled with family and friends!

    What an beautiful teacup! I love drinking my tea out of beautiful cups, it makes it taste better, don't you think?

    Of course, Payton is just cute as can be...they grow up so quickly, its nice to document all the fun along the way.

    I am planning meatloaf as well, and you just talked me into cheese sauce...;0)

    Enjoy your family time sweet friend!!


    P.S. Loved the photo of you and your mom! Give her a hug for me!

  3. Happy Friday! Love the first picture of you, your mom and Flynn!
    Love your new tea's so fun!
    Enjoy your weekend!

  4. Nice plans for a good weekend ahead. Your tea cup is lovely. It looks familiar. Is it Brambley Hedge? So happy you have had your mammogram and everything is good. Such an important test that none of us look forward to having. Enjoy your weekend. ♥

  5. Billie Jo, Flynn must have seen Beauty and the Beast! It's all the rage now. She looks so pretty! I sympathize with you on the mammogram. Definitely not fun. Thankfully it's just once a year or less! Thank you for sharing your week with us.

    PS You are cordially invited to my Simple Stories Planner Giveaway! :-)

  6. Hi Billie Jo! Thank you for visiting my blog! I have been on a blog break, but look for a post soon.

  7. Great idea for all the dress up clothes!

  8. The snow! Oh man. Would you believe me if I said Miss C was running through a sprinkler down here in TX this past week?? For realz.

    Good for you for taking care of yourself. I need to schedule my next one.

    Some time ago, I found this extension rack for hanging clothes in your closet at Walmart. It was $10?? Any rate, I put it together in no time, hung it from the too-high-for-her clothes bar that is currently in her closet, and waa-laa, hanging dress up dresses at arms reach. Isn't it nice to have them up? Hope Flynn enjoys them even longer now :)

  9. Hello friend. As always I love reading your Weekend Plan post and about your week. I miss the dress up stage. It went by too fast.

    I love that cup!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. What a happy life. I loved the photo of the three of you. Trust God. I speak life and health to your body by the power of the shed blood of Jesus and in Jesus' Name. Amen.

  11. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I love the picture of the brings back such happy memories from when my girls were little. I adore the tea cup you got from Etsy. Your daughter is so precious in her little dress. My girls used to have a collection of costume dresses, and when they would have play dates they all would dress up, and make believe. What a blessing children are! Hugs to you. Juli

  12. That little dress up nook is adorable! And I'm sure having everything hanging up is so much more appealing to a child than digging through a tub to find the perfect gown to wear!

  13. Hi Billie Jo! Thank you for visiting me and leaving me a comment about Jill! I found you back and LOVE your blog and your sweet little girl. You sound like my kinda gal (although a whole lot younger--lol). I am your newest follower and will put you on my sidebar so I don't miss any posts. xo Diana
