Hello! Friday has arrived and boy am I happy to see it. I forget what it’s like to look forward to the weekend during tax season, so now that I have my weekends free I feel like shouting for joy from the rooftop. Or balcony, the rooftop doesn’t seem very safe.
Any big plans for you this weekend? We are going car shopping. While I’m excited to get a new ride, I am not looking forward to the actual car shopping part. It’s not my favorite thing to do. Don’t tell the car salesman, but I really only care if the vehicle is pretty, isn’t overpriced, and gets good gas mileage. When they start talking about the engine and the extras, I tune them out. And smile. And nod. Josh does the negotiating, he’s a pro. 🙂 How do you all feel about car shopping??
Whatever your plans may be, I hope you have a pleasant weekend. To kick-start your weekend, have fun looking at my favorite things in this week’s roundup of Friday Favorites!

Happy Mother’s Day Weekend to all those fabulous mothers out there!
