I am introducing a new chapter to my blog called ” The 5 Friday Frolics”. I want this to be a landing place, and kind of like my weekly blessings, latest finds, and behind the scene moments. These are moments, things, and times that I can reflect on. This will be 5 things that I am so happy about, and want to share with my readers. I recently celebrated my 39th birthday with part of my family. Mr. JW is taking the pic being such an amazing guy.

My birthday is towards the end of the summer, and these fine folks are always apart of the celebrating. How bittersweet birthday’s can be, and how much I miss my mom more than anything in this world. I can’t begin to explain the pain that goes along with her absence.
I created this beach hat “DIY”this summer for a trip, and I was very pleased by the outcome. I added this to my ” The 5 Friday Frolics”. If you had not seen that post I wrote about it here. I had been watching this hat on Instagram for quite some time. The price tag on this hat was not what I wanted to see $455 at its highest. The lowest I have seen them are $89. Drumroll please… recreated for $35 dollars. Wohooooo for the school teacher saving the day……
Traveling to Austin has been apart of my “5 Friday Frolics” took 2 trips here since the start of the summer. One with all my boys, and just the hubby and I. I wrote about this cafe in this post here, and man oh man how yummy this place was. Make sure you go back and check out that post here, we hit up our favorite Austin eats here. We always have such an amazing time when we go there.
These booties are so cute, and I found them here. I wasn’t always big on a lot of Forever 21 finds, but they have grown on me a lot. Let me share with you some things that I find to be worth the money. I will also show you which pieces hold up longer than other pieces.
Dupes: For The Win
These babies are a great dupe pair that were over $200 that I had been watching here. Don’t nobody got time for that!!!!! In another post this week I will bring you my Favorite Forever 21 finds. Also, let’s not knock it til we try it. They have a department for the thick thighed chicks… #gottoloveme
Here we are on a date night. Mr. JW always finds the time to help me grow this blog. We have learned to date each other in this marriage. Take time to love the hell out of each other, and be each other’s biggest cheerleaders. Knowing that this is both our 2nd marriage we vowed to do this the right way. We are learning to deposit into each other’s ambitions, beliefs, and goals. I couldn’t write my “5 Friday Frolics” without talking about how he has affected my life. Mr. JW has done that in such a positive way. He gives me everything I need in this lifetime. JW has been the most amazing role model for our boys.
