Happy Friday Everyone!

Not only is this a fabulous Friday but here in Dallas today is the last day of school before Spring Break!  We are packing the car and getting ready to get outta town….so excited!

But before I spend the next 12 hours in the car with an almost 5-year-old ~ I thought a moment of sanity was well deserved and a little gawking was necessary!
