Weekend Recap {Derby Prep}

Happy Derby Week, Friends!

It’s cold & rainy here today but that didn’t keep my from enjoying a beautiful weekend!


Date night at BWW of course! I love this (somewhat) weekly tradition. Luke &  I look forward to it every week!

I am not huge on selfies… but each Friday I join The Tiny Twig & Naptime Diaries for #FridayIntroductions. I love meeting new, encouraging followers each week & it allows my current followers to remember me!  Who doesn’t love new friends? Search the hashtag on IG & learn more about it!


I’ve been waiting all winter for this moment! I love our quaint little patio & I love it even more when it’s warmer outside. It’s my go to place for my quite time & I am so thankful I could finally get back out there!

This weekend, I also got to do my all time favorite thing…CRAFT! And not just any crafting – Derby Party Crafting! Whoop Whoop!

Sneak Peek of a homemade craft! Any guesses on what it’ll be?


Sunday was such a sweet day! We served as greeters for the first time as MEMBERS of our new church. We had our friends join us for services & had a delightful lunch. An evening walk on the trails by our house. AND more Derby crafting while catching up on the DVR! Why can’t every day be Sunday?

How was your weekend, friend?

Frankly my dear…Happy Monday!

    Ahhhhh! Derby Week! I'm so jealous! The Derby was on my 30 Before 30 list, and thankfully I went when I was 29! I most definitely want to go back! So Fun! Can't wait to see your pics from all the festivities…and your fabulous hat! XOXO
