~Good evening! And Happy Mother’s Day! We had a great weekend! Yesterday was L’s 9th birthday and I’m pretty sure he had a ball. The best part? He *finally* got the giant Pikachu he’s been wanting from Dave & Busters. Score!
I started off today with a Mother’s Day ride at the cycle studio and then spent the rest of the day relaxing with my boys. It was perfect. I’m not sure what age the homemade gifts stop, but I am going to be so sad when they do because they are the best.
~I have no idea how I missed this, but there’s a new MTV Challenge starting this week! It’s “Champs Vs. Pros” and will have MTV Challenge greats against professional athletes. Will there be as much drama as normal? As many hook-ups? We’ll see!
~Totally random, but has anyone ever tried Smile Club Direct? I am not sure I need Invisalign, but I do have a few things I’d like fixed.
That’s it from here! Have a great night!
Today I’m Smiling Because…
~Today is L’s 9th Birthday! Eeek!! It’s the start of his last year in single digits and we’re going to make it a great one!
~L hasn’t lost any more of his spacers and I am hoping we can keep it that way till his next appointment!
~W is all registered for kindergarten next year! We do school of choice (our “home” school is like 20 minutes away while the one we choose to go to is within walking distance which is silly), so we had to wait and make sure there was space. There was and we are all set for W!
~Buster is getting SO BIG! He’s such a good puppy and is super sweet and playful. I love having him (and so does Buddy).
~W made me (and let me open) the sweetest Mother’s Day gifts. L ran off with the one he made, but I suspect that it’s pretty fantastic too. I can’t wait!
That’s it from here! What are you smiling about today?
Dear My iPhone, I don’t understand why you sometimes don’t recognize my thumbprint? It makes no sense at all.
Dear L, I cannot believe this is your last day being an 8-year-old! Totally unreal!
Dear 2lbs Weights, It sounds so silly, but you feel so much heavier when I am riding a bike.
Dear Kate Spade, I don’t know what it’s going to mean now that Coach bought you, but I don’t think I like it.
Dear Summer, You seem like such a long way away!
Dear Firework Oreo Cookies, My kids are kind of obsessed with you so you must be good!
Dear RoboCalls, Knock it off already! Whatever it is, I don’t want it. Seriously. #losemynumber
Dear Starbucks, What’s up with all these collaborations that are only available overseas? We could use some Starbucks + ban.do here in the States!
~This week has been pretty wild so far! Lots of stuff going on. Orthodontist appointments, PTO Meetings, Field Trips, after school activities, just so much stuff! We missed walk / ride your bike day to school yesterday, so we want to do that sometime this week too!
~I made it back to Orange Theory yesterday! If you go there where do you start? I have been starting on the rower / strength floor, but have trouble getting my heartrate on that. I am wondering if it’d help to do the treadmill first? I know people prefer the tread first, but I am just so beat and want to go home after it! LOL! Maybe I will switch it up next time I go and see what happens.
~I am not 100% sure what all subscription boxes I still have coming this week, but I *think* I am getting Stitch Fix, Bespoke Post, Love With Food, Kloverbox, ipsy, Birchbox, and one or two more. Lots of “classic” boxes this week!
~Just a little reminder that the Bath & Body Works Spring Tote is still available online and will be in stores tomorrow (that’s what my store told me anyway). I have been waiting to grab mine because I want to use like 97 coupons with my purchase and they only allow that in stores.
Okay, that’s it from here. Have a great weekend!
This week I am saying so what if…
~I want to go to TJMaxx to see if they have the Marc Jacobs products that everyone else is finding even though the last thing I need is more eyeshadow.
~I was this close into getting talked into being PTO Secretary next year. Luckily someone else stepped up so I volunteered for another event instead. LOLOLOL.
~I feel like I am going to be spending an insane amount of time at the Orthodontist in the next few years. Hello new best friends!
~I am pretty excited for Orange Theory today! And sometimes refer to it as “Orange Leaf”, which is my favorite frozen yogurt place.
~I already want a spoiler for the Summer POPSUGAR Must Have Box!
~Yep, I still play (and like) Pokemon Go.
~I have probably looked to see what date Memorial Day falls on this year about a dozen times already and I still couldn’t tell you. I also don’t even know why I care?
What are you saying so what to this week?
1. If you have children when do they get out of school for the year? I think we’re in the minority here, but we’ve still got over a month to go! Ack. We start school late (after Labor Day) and get an assortment of half days, an extended holiday break and then a full week off for both Winter AND Spring Break, so we pay for it at the end of the year. I would love to switch to the year round school with 9 weeks on, 3 weeks off, but I doubt that would ever happen in Michigan.
2. Do you take a daily vitamin? I know everyone is different and has different needs, but I am curious to hear everyone’s thoughts on this. I personally take a gummy multivitamin and Vitamin D supplements each day.
That’s it from here! I’m looking forward to hearing your answers.
~Good morning! So much happening here this week. First of all, B is home!! Yay! We’ve also got the orthodontist, W has a field trip, I have a PTO Meeting, W needs to get all registered for Kindergarten and it’s L’s birthday week! He’s Star of the Week at school so every day he / we have to get different items together to bring to school. Today is 5 items that mean something special to him and 5-7 pictures of special times in his life.
~If you missed it yesterday go enter my latest giveaway. It’s for a small collection of things I am loving right now including an Erin Condren Life Planner! The presale is happening now for the 2018 Life Planners and they are offering free Hardbound Notebook with your purchase..
~I think I mentioned it, but I did the Baby Foot peel a few weeks ago. I am not sure what I did wrong, but it wasn’t as effective as normal? I bought this one from Target and I don’t know if they are less potent than the Amazon ones or if I just didn’t have it on long enough or what? Has anyone experienced this? Just a sidetone – if you aren’t familiar with Baby Foot and are having breakfast or something right now, don’t google because it’s gross.
That’s it from here! Have a great day!
~Good evening! B’s back! He was out of town for work for a few weeks, was home for a night and then went away for the National Guard this weekend. But he’s back now and should be home for a few weeks at least. We’re pretty excited!
~I tried out Orange Theory on Saturday! I went with a friend of mine who has been going for a few months now and she showed me the ropes. It’s a bit confusing at first – especially for someone who isn’t used to that style workout, but I liked it. A lot. I am going to mix that and cycle because I do love that too. Other than the treadmill and a little yoga here and there I haven’t really “worked out” in a LONG time. Too long. I don’t really know what to do on my own at the gym so I found OT very helpful. It also helps they are super close to my house – as is the cycle place. That’s key. I also really love that they send you e-mail summaries of your workout (my cycle place does that too). I’m still learning about the Splat Points” but I will get it figured out.
~Anyone watching the MTV Awards tonight? I will probably catch the rerun after the live show, but I want to try and watch the Princess Diana special that’s on tonight too. I love all that royal stuff!
~So Waffles & Syrup Oreo’s are really a thing? Has anyone spotted them? Are they good??
That’s it from here! Have a great night!
