{five on friday} spring fever + books + a thank you

Oh happy day! We sure are ready for the weekend around here!!! Let's get this FOF party started with Darci, Natasha, April and Christina!
I don't know about you, but I have some serious Spring fever over here! We've had warmer temps lately, so it puts me in the mood! I'm excited about Essie's new Spring 2014 collection called Hide & Go Chic!
Seriously. I have a problem! Just as soon as I start my "green" smoothie kick, these things make their grand appearance!!!! Ugh....I guess I just need to eat smoothies all day to balance out the cookies! HA! My current favs are Thin Mint {duh} and Lemonades! Am I the only one?!?!
Seriously, these two melt my heart! Sweet BFFs who happen to be cousins! We took Ella to the library for the first time this week! They were in heaven! Loved watching them pick out their books, checking them out, and carrying them out! Such sweet memories in the making. I can't believe we will be celebraring this lil' guys FOURTH birthday this weekend!

 Are these not the cutest?! E got a pair of these a couple of weeks ago and can't wait to wear them! Darn you, Gap Kids!!! You're going to make me broke this Spring/Summer! :)

Most of you will remember my recent posts on sweet little Wes!
If you haven't read his story, you can do so here! Ashley, Wes's mom was overwhelmed by your sweet comments and response that she asked me to share a thank you note with you all!

To the newest members of the Wes Warrior Family, thank you from the bottom of my heart for the outpouring of support, emails, and donations I received after the post Jen did last week. The blogging community is so giving, and you guys are no exception. You cannot imagine the impact your gifts have and will make on the families struggling in the hospital trying to support their children. Actions speak so much louder than words in this case, so thank you for loving on these families. Please tune into my blog in the next couple of weeks, as I will be posting pictures and updates from the donations you guys have made.
Forever changed, Forever grateful,

Cheers to the weekend, friends!!!
