Friday Fun!

Living healthy natural lives is not always the easiest thing, which is why I started my blog - to inspire and help others live their best life healthfully and naturally. Friday Fun is my way of sharing a bit of my life with you, my readers and friends, and I hope you will be willing to share your thoughts and ideas with me too.

So, here we go!

In my life this week...
Well, to tell you the truth, all I can think about right now is yesterday. It just so happened that I turned 30 yesterday, and thanks to my husband, family and friends, it was my best birthday ever!!

My husband really went over and above to spoil me silly with sweet, thoughtful gifts, taking me on a helicopter ride, out to lunch, and a surprise celebration with my family. Not to mention, he also made me organic cheesecake with a homemade organic cherry pie filling over the top - delicious!!

I had such a wonderful time, from my son running up the stairs to hug, kiss and wish me a happy birthday to going out to celebrate with a few sisters and my mom at night to soaring over the Twin Cities in a helicopter with my husband to crying about messages sweet, thoughtful friends sent in a book my husband made for me.

It was a fantastic day, and I am loving being 30 already. (Even though I look and feel like I am about 16)

I am inspired by...
my husband's thoughtful, hard work. He is such a hard worker anyway, but then he just went over and above all my expectations to make my birthday incredibly special. He gives me so much love each day! His selflessness inspires me!

My favorite thing this week was...
Like I just said, my birthday celebrations!

What's working/not working for me...
Working - I am having so much fun hanging out with my two little daughters every day while my son and husband are away at school and work. I just love my special time with my two little sweeties.

Not working - My son is really really tired every day after Kindergarten. This means he gets crabby, irrational, and crazy quite quickly when things don't go his way. I am trying to figure out what to do about this. He used to take naps every day, and now he gets no naps. Any ideas, all you smart moms out there?

Questions/thoughts I have...
I am overflowing with thankfulness. I have way more than I ever deserve. But, God still showers me moment to moment with his greatest gifts. I am working on living my life being wildly grateful for all His gifts!

I'm reading...
A Light to my Path by Lynn Austen, Encouragement for Today Devotional by Proverbs 31 Team, 1000 Gifts by Ann Voskamp, and lots of children's books!

I'm cooking...
Today I am making my husband's birthday cake. We are celebrating his big day tomorrow. So, I am going to be making food and yummy treats for his celebration!

I'm grateful for...
love and thoughtful from family and friends! My heart is actually bursting with fullness and joy from all their love!

Why am I choosing to embarrass myself with this photo? I don't know....But, here's a little peek at my birthday celebrations from yesterday.

She's old!!
