(Reflection of You) 5 Fact Friday

Hello friends,

I'm back with another 5 Fact Friday....sadly this is 'film-less friday' again........ oh my what a few days it's been..... such a long story.... But can I just say.... thank you for all the kind emails that landed in my inbox yesterday... I can't begin to express how much they were appreciated. It was as if you knew I needed the extra love! 'sigh'.... so grateful. Here's to a new day!

The boys and I took these photos a few months back and I totally forgot about them til this week..... I thought they'd be fun as an animated gif. :)... silliness.... (the files a little large and slow to load...gotta investigate that).....
You might notice Brett is a little slimmer in the photos I posted the other day..... He really looks awesome! Bryce on the other hand never has to worry about what he eats.... He gets that from his skinny-mini Dad. Sorry Bretter...You are your father's son... but you did get a little of your mama's genetics too.... oops....


Okie doke onto 5 Facts....  Please feel free to play along... You can link up over at Reflection of You. The more the merrier!

Fact #1: This has been a mix of the best and the worst.... all in one week. It's funny how that goes.

Fact #2: Today is day 6 of pilates for me. I'm back in the saddle...and wondering what made me quit? It's so good for the back, the core... the everything.......I sleep better too.

Fact #3: I am so excited about Oasis. Xanthe and I are landing in Cali a few days early.... and we're cooking up some fun plans... Bursting.....

Fact #4: I've recently started watching Netflix....and my latest little guilty pleasure; a silly teen drama called, Life Unexpected... it only lasted 2 seasons... not sure what the draw is...but I can sit and watch 2 or 3 episodes in a row....and just kind of escape into the 'drama'.... 

Fact #5: Animated gifs  make me a little queasy ... so I must finish this the flashing image is starting to drive me mad.... Perhaps you feel the same way.... 'giggles'......

Biggest love...truest gratitude....happy friday!


p.s. the response to Round Trip has been incredible. There are just a few spaces left.... Wowzer.... 'sigh'

I LOVE this gif...a Mom surrounded by her boys. So sweet! I'm sorry about your rough week - here's to better days next week! I've never taken Pilates but my daughter has...she's a dancer so she took to it so easily with her flexibility. Her Mom is a whole different story :)

Your trip to California sounds incredible - I dream of visiting there one day! Have a great weekend, Kim!

oh lordy ... that is just so hilarious! i'm dizzy watching you three!
but isn't that just the perfect capture of a typical convo between you?
well, except if the boys decided to jabb each other, lol!
so i decided to focus on each of you to watch each frame (to keep my head from spinning) ...
and my fave of brett is when he rests his head on his hand (his portraits yesterday were so so beautiful btw ~ love brett!) ...
my fave of you is when you give that funny 'oh brother' look, followed by angelic smile ~ priceless!
and brycee when he has his arm around your shoulders ~ he loves his momma so ... : )
a definite bbb moment ~ each and every crazy one!
thanks for the smile, honey!
love you and those boys (and john, too of course) ...

OH, I need to get back into my exercise routine! I'm giving myself until school starts. Good for you for sticking to Pilates.

Love, love, love the pictures with your boys! My son is 20 - such a neat age - on the brink of adulthood with just a touch of the little boy left over! My son will NOT let me take his picture!! I'm looking forward to your LR4 class!!

Looks like you had fun with this. What a great idea! The 5 Fact Fridays are fun, thanks for continued inspiration.

Hi Kim...such a fab idea you and Xanthe had...5 fact friday! Love your post and i agree sometimes those GIFs can make me a little dizzy...but then again i guess i am that way at times without them "~)

Hi Kim,

Thanks for the love today (did you mean to link to the Reflections of You post?). I was so glad to see the photos above today as somehow I've missed any photos of your boys previously. So nice to see your family! Just signed up for Round Trip - so very excited! Really wish I could go to Oasis but the timing wasn't right at work. Hoping to attend the next event though, whenever that might be, but will be looking forward to your reporting when you return.
Have an excellent weekend!

Kim, Loved your post, and your gif. I have a son named Brett also, and he is amazing. Actually, he is a photographer. Not sure if he is following in my footsteps, or me in his.

I hope they have Oasis next year. I would so love to go. More importantly, I would love to be the strong, confident woman who ventures out alone to something like that. Enjoy your time there, and I look forward to hearing all about it.

Thank you for your inspiration and knowledge, and for sharing so much of yourself with all of us.

- Judy
