It's Friday!!!! It's been a nice week. I have been loving the longer days and seeing the sun this week! As usual, I am linking up with Andrea, Narci, and Erika to share a few of my Friday Favorites. Just a random assortment of things that made me happy this week!
oneHands down my favorite part of this week was celebrating World Down Syndrome Day on Tuesday. I shared a blog post all about my sister Emma and the response I got was just awesome!
If you missed my post, you can check it out here.
twoAnd then I saw an Instagram post from my favorite local shop, Research & Design. There was the sweetest little girl in a "21" shirt. Come to find out the shop had these "21" shirts made to help raise awareness for Down Syndrome. I mean my heart could not be more full! I went right out and got mine!
ps... The "21" is symbolic of the 21st chromosome. The embryo has three copies of chromosome 21 instead of the usual two. This is why World Down Syndrome Day was chosen to be celebrated on 3/21.
threeWe may have finally turned the corner to warmer weather.....I hope!! This week it was so nice to see the blue sky and sun....even if it was still cold. But there is no snow in the forecast, so I think we are finally done! The blue sky & sun made me yearn for dinner from the grill, so Paul was out there in his ski coat and hat....grilling away!
fourRandom pics of the kids this week.....
Ella has been wishing for Converse high top sneakers and she finally got a pair last week. She loves everything in the mint/teal color family, so of course that's the color she picked! She looked adorable heading out to school in her head to toe teal!
My last favorite this week hasn't happened yet..... it's just some excitement for our weekend plans! Paul and I are heading out to dinner with friends tonight for Local Restaurant Week. And tomorrow my brother and his family are coming in for the weekend. We are celebrating Luke's birthday and my nephew Nicholas' at a local Hibachi restaurant. The boys are so excited for dinner and even more excited for a cousins sleepover!
