Hey-o Friday!!!

Happy Friday friends!  Long story transmission in my car totally died on me last the good Lord provided and I'm getting a brand new one for free!  I'm heading 3 hours north to go get it today - yep, that's where it broke down.

While I found myself getting upset about the car dying, I found myself later praising God for the many blessings that day and the days to come.  Maybe that was the perfect place to break down - who knows if another dealership would have fought for me like this one did!

Onto my week...I've got 5 randoms for you today!


Last weekend, we got to celebrate Valentine's Day on a little roadtrip.  Once I made it there (see above...haha), we had a blast.  We did lunch at Texas de Brazil and it was freaking delicious.  I've had it before but for some reason, it was the absolute best this time!

Guarana - so nostalgic to drink one of these - makes me wish I was in Brazil again!

not the best photo but that meat was amazing!!!

Then we toured the Texas Rangers Ballpark.  Kevin has, of course, done this before but I never have!  I've been to a bunch of games but never done a private tour so it was awesome.  And you know anything Rangers related is my hubby's happy place! dark :(

I think I caught that 'almost homerun'

Kevin totally got a video of me pretending to do a press conference but it cut off before I said all the good stuff!  The other people on the tour thought it was pretty funny.

On Valentine's night, we babysat so that Kevin's "adopted aunt" and her hubby could go on a date.  We just love their kids!  Here I am being goofy with our little niece as she wore Kevin hat and I wore her bow. Ha!


Ummm...I think spring is coming!  My favorite flower in the world - the mountain laurel - is starting to bloom here in Texas.  It's seriously the most amazing smell in the world.  I wish I could bottle it up and smell it all the time.

And we bought tulips from the grocery store.  Aren't they pretty?


As you know, I love my essential oils so I needed a great place to keep them both at home and traveling.  I posted this photo on Instagram a while back with my EO travel bag.  It was a makeup bag that I got from Lily and my mom sewed the little inserts so that my oils are nice and protected.  I love it!

I got this box just as a decoration from Home Goods back when we were staging our house to sell and it's turned into the perfect oils storage box!


So I'm thinking about ordering Juice Plus and I want to know if any of you have experience with it.  I want a vitamin that gives me nutrients from the actual source (fruits and veggies) because so many vitamin brands are full of junk.  Have you tried Juice Plus before?  If so, what did you think?


This perfect, free printable is hanging in my living room right now.  I just love it!

Have a great weekend, friends!
