{Oh Hey Friday // Bring your Kid to Work day // New glasses }

It's Friday, Friday
Gotta get down on Friday
Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend, weekend
Friday, Friday
Gettin' down on Friday
Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend

Does anyone else sing that very annoying song when Friday rolls around? No? Just me? Okay then...haha! Moving along...Happy Friday! Monday was a drag, but this week went by fairly fast for us. No complaints here. Time for Oh Hey Friday with Karli at Sept Farm.

{O N E} Every time I scroll through Instagram I see cute little looping videos made with an app called Boomerang. So I downloaded it. Mason and I had some fun with it....

{T W O} Mason got to visit Nate's work yesterday for bring your kid to work day. Below is what I shared about it on my Instagram...

He had the best time and I think it was more than he could have dreamed! He brought home a backpack full of things that they gave him at the plant and so many stories to tell me. Nate works for a Missiles and Fire Control plant, so it's very top secret and photos {and spouses - boo!} are not allowed. I wish I could have seen pictures of all the activities he got to do. A couple more photos of my guys before they left...


{T H R E E} Mason's teacher mentioned to me on Wednesday that Mason was having trouble seeing some things in the classroom even with his glasses on. So I called the eye doctor to see if they had anything open for the next day {since Mason would already be off}. I knew it was a long-shot, but they did have one last appointment and the time was perfect! So, after the fun day at Nate's work they trucked on over to the eye doctor. Mason's vision has changed quite a bit and he needs new lenses. As with his first appointment we let Mason pick out his own glasses. We want them to be something he loves since he is the one wearing them. Nate said they tried on every single pair they offered for little boys, but Mason kept coming back to the same Nike ones. And then he found out that he could customize his colors and that pretty much sealed the deal! I knew with their shoes you could go online and design your own pair, but I never thought you could do that with glasses as well. So cool! We ordered two pairs, one normal pair and then a pair of the same glasses but as sunglasses. Mason is fair skinned and blue eyed and has very sensitive eyes like his mama. Now he can wear sunnies and still be able to see! I can't wait for them to come in so that I can see them in person. Here is what he picked {these glasses, but the colors in the print-out}...

He's the coolest! I am so thankful for this little guy. Oh and guess what? His absence for going to Nate's work was going to be un-excused {even though it was highly educational and he spent the day with engineers and rocket scientists, but whatever}, but since he also went to the eye-doctor and we had a note it's excused! Wahoo.

{F O U R} Mason's birthday party is in one week from Saturday. One week away and I am not even stressing! This is unheard of for me. The location we are having it at is awesome and there's not much we have to do in lieu of bringing our decorations and cake. I'm pumped! Mason chose a Batman/superhero theme and it was pretty easy to find decor and party supplies for. We got our Batman shirts in the mail yesterday, so we are ready!!


{F I V E} Someone else is a little excited that it's Friday...

Happy Weekend! Any plans?


  1. I think having a Dad that works at a missile and fire control plant is every little boys dream. How cool is that? Hope they had a blast (no pun intended) together. His new glasses are so cool! I let me daughter pick her own out, too, the first time because I wanted her to love them...and she picked out Gucci! Really? That may be the only Gucci thing I ever purchase!

  2. Oh sweet friend, your posts always melt my heart and make me smile. I just can't get enough Mason and Diesel cuteness! I bet that Mason's day with his Daddy at work is something that he will talk about forever! I can only imagine the excitement and fun for him. His new glasses are super cute! I love them and his super heroes party will be awesome! I love those tee shirts. What a fun idea! The picture of Diesel makes me smile! Happy weekend sweet friend!

  3. That is so cool that Mason got to go to work with Nate!! What an awesome day!!

  4. That is the coolest job ever! I can't believe you're not even allowed. I bet this is something Mason will remember for years & years to come. Nate, too.

    Happy weekend!

  5. Top secret work! How cool! I bet Henry would die if he got to customize the color of his glasses. That is so fun!

  6. He is too, too cute. I LOVE his new glasses! Have a great weekend, friend!

  7. Mason is just the cutest! And yes, I frequently sing that Friday song, too!

  8. Love that little boomerang video! I haven't tried it out yet but you inspired me. Super pictures of your guys and what a great memory for Mason!

  9. I've never heard of that song before, but now it's in my head! I love it. He's so darn cute. And ya for being able to pick your own colors. Crazy how fast his eyes changed! Oh and Baby Fox just picked out his theme for his birthday party, Superman/Avengers...hehe :)

  10. Woah. Natha's job sounds really cool, and so secretive! How neat that Mason was able to spend the day with his dad!
    Mason's glasses are so cool! I had no idea Nike customized frames like they do shoes.
    The birthday party sounds like it's going to be a blast. And bonus points that most of the work is done for you. That's my kind of party planning.

  11. Take your kid to work day sounds like a huge success!! Love the glasses he chose!! My kind of glasses. Have a great weekend.

  12. So I COMPLETELY missed that it was bring your kid to work day. How did I not know this? BUT sounds like Mason had the best time at Nate's work! So cool that even though they don't allow spouses, they did allow the kids to go. I bet Mason and Nate had the best time together!

  13. Love his new glasses! How cool he could customize them! And yay for a pair on sunglasses too! I'm loving the batman themed party! And I know what you mean about not stressing about the party... I usually do too! But having it at a place that does the work definitely helps :)

  14. I have such fond memories of going to work with my dad! How cool that Mason was able to go. We can't ever visit Conor at work since we don't have clearance. It's a huge bummer! And those glasses are adorable! I needed to start wearing some in 2nd grade, so I assume my boys will need to at some point.

  15. Oh his glasses are just SO much fun! Glad that was caught quickly thanks to an observant teacher!

    Looks like those guys had a blast at work and a top secret kind of job is pretty cools stuff.

    Love Mason in the Bat Man mask too. I bet you are busy with party prep this week!

  16. Love the party idea; so fun! Which plant does he work for? Sean was in Lufkin last week for some meetings. I wouldn't be too sad if we made a move to Texas at some point. So much fun stuff!


Thanks for the comments! Hope you are having an amazing day!!
