I love Fridays, I love thank you notes, and I love Jimmy Fallon’s Thank You Notes, so, naturally, Friday here on my blog means:
Thank You Notes and Jimmy Fallon!
Jimmy’s Thank You Notes
No Thank You Notes from Jimmy this week. 🙁 WOMP WOMP. So, Hashtags:#HowIGotFired
I’m a lucky woman to be happy. I’m a lucky woman to have a day filled with festivities planned for my family. To have my family. To be loved. To have today. I know the mood right now in this country is once again, heart-wrenching. It seems like this division, fear, and hate will not leave our side. I do not stand with hate. I will always, always stand on the side of love and equality for all. With that said, it’s Friday, go out there and celebrate life, each other, differences, and make new friends! LOVE!!!
“The river is motion, turmoil, rage. As the river flows, it wonders what it would be like to be so still, to take a breath, to rest. But the rock will always wonder what lies around the bend in the stream.” -Kekla Magoon
July is taking off! Like most Julys, this July has been quite busy. It’s SO busy that I thought I’d write out my Thank You Notes, I hope you don’t mind. 😉
Thank You Notes
Thank you, family adventures, for leading the way to cookies and pie. 🙂 I’ve been wanting to visit Downtown Snohomish. I’ve been to Snohomish quite a few times, but we never walked around their cute little downtown area. I’m so glad we finally did, I found a few new shops that I cannot wait to visit again and I FOUND COOKIES!!!
In Naperville I had Le Chocolat for cookies.
In Charleston I had King Street Cookies for cookies consumption.
And now I have Snohomish Pie Company for COOKIES!!
I know it’s a pie place, however… after taking a bite of my littles’ s’mores cookie; I’ll be back for COOKIES!
Don’t get me wrong, the pie was good too, but y’all know I’m all about COOKIES!
Thank you, Babe, for being my forever best friend!
Thank you, kiddos, for loving books and visits to the library. 🙂

It’s DAY 1 of #CreativeMomLife hosted by my lovely friend @Linkouture and yours truly. ? Today’s prompt is About Me. I’m usually the worst when it comes to talking about myself. I know I blog about my life, which is cool, but ummm if you check my About Me page ::::crickets:::? Anyway, here goes nothing! 🙂 Hi. ?? I’m Dean. Dean is not my real name, however it’s what close friends and family call me. 🙂 ?Speaking of family… I’m married to my best friend. We’re about to celebrate 15 years of marriage. ???I have three kiddos that fill me with laughter and love each day. ?I am a lover of many things but most importantly my family and friends. ✨I’m a believer in KINDNESS. I have faith that good will always prevail. ?Happy Mail is my love language. ⭐️I’m a misplaced Texan. I’ve lived in Germany, Texas, Illinois, South Carolina, and now Washington. ☕️Coffee, kindness, and L?VE fuel me. ? Writing, painting, and creating helped pull me out of the gray. ?As mentioned above I have a blog. Mrs. AOK, A Work In Progress, has been a creative outlet for me, and I LOVE IT! ??AOK are my initials. ? I’m a wannabe photographer. ✍️I love to write, doodle, Zentangle, watercolor, and try my hand at handlettering. ?I have a super obsession with notebooks, journals, markers, stamps, sugar skulls and all things Frida. I’d love to hear about you! Share a little bit about yourself in the comments or join the challenge using the #CreativeMomLife. Do you have a friend who would like this challenge, tag ’em! Happy Friday and Happy July!!??
Thank you, neighborhood, for an AWESOME BOOMING 4th of July! This was our first Independence Day here in Washington, and boy do they take their fireworks seriously! We did NOT have to leave our neighborhood to watch an amazing fireworks show. We went outside and felt the boom and the explosive ( 😉 ) energy that surrounded us. 🙂
Day 7 #CreativeMomLife: KIDS ? #tbt to Independence Day with my babies. These.kiddos.are.my.world. **************************************** Thankfully, all of my babies share the same passion to create. ?? Our summers together are always crafty & fun, sprinkled in with a bit of sibling squabbles. ? But in the end they do stuff like this, no prompting needed. ? I hope they’ll always come together for no particular reason or holiday needed, just because… LOVE. **************************************** @Linkouture & I would love for you to join our IG Challenge. Don’t forget to use the hashtag: #CreativeMomLife Happy Thursday!! ?

I wish I would’ve took a few good pictures, but I have no idea how to take pictures of fireworks, they always come out horribly. Tamara? Anyway, my son’s room had a beautiful view of the fireworks. It was such a breathtaking sight to see all the fireworks in the valley with the mountains in the distance.
Thank you, GOLDEN BOY! We love you!!
