I have several favorite moments from the last couple of weeks.
Date night with this guy! It had been forever and we had fun seeing a movie and going to dinner! Thanks mom for babysitting!
Morning coffee (actually it was Spiced Chai Tea Latte) from my FAVORITE coffee shop in our town. If I can, I like to grab coffee after I drop the kids off to sip on at home while I work.
Little man doesn’t sit still anymore so this was a sweet moment of these two watching a show. He absolutely loves his big brother! Seeing this bond is my FAVORITE.
We were all three playing in Beckham’s room (let’s be real, I was picking up) and Beckham tells me he wants to make his bed. He did this all by himself. All those times of him watching me make his bed paid off. The wrinkles didn’t even bother me…I was so proud.
This is my FAVORITE thing right now. Maddox wants me to sing him “You Are My Sunshine” song after his bath each night. He used to let me do this when he was a baby, but stopped a few months ago. He likes to watch me in the mirror and then look at my face real quick to see my lips moving…for some reason, he thinks this is hilarious!
Lastly, getting a pedicure is always one of my FAVORITES!
I have made so much food lately, but haven’t taken one picture of any of it. I did however take a picture of Maddox’s plate the other day (I’m trying to write another “Toddler Meal Ideas” post). This was lunch and consisted of Applegate Organic Uncured Beef hot dogs (grass fed beef), pickles, and raspberries. I’m super weird about hot dogs and won’t buy anything other than these or Hebrew National.
Y’all, this is the BEST cleaning product I’ve ever used. I won it at a Favorite Things party last week and I get happy to use it. Yes, happy. It smells so good! Just trust me and go get some. I think you can find it at Target, but I found it online HERE also. It advertises to be a “greener” cleaner…it boasts non-toxic and natural, which makes it even better. And it’s only about $3.00!
FAVORITE FRUGAL TIP/EXPERIENCE
Groupon! Often people will ask us how we eat out for such a low monthly budget and this is one of the reasons. I’m sure you’ve heard of this, but we use it for a ton of things, especially eating out or the movies. Before we go anywhere, we check out the site and see what they have. They’ll send you emails on the deals they have and Ryan will snag any good deals. When we want to go to the movies, we buy tickets from Studio Movie Grill for $5 each. Most of the deals we get are 50% off.
FAVORITE BOOK / BIBLE VERSE / QUOTE
I found the following quotes on Pinterest and I just love them. I’m going to make the first two into printables. The t-shirt one is just funny!
And I just love this quote and laugh every time I see it. #1 because it’s true. And #2 because Melissa McCarthy is probably the funniest person ever.
I loved these two outfits from the week!
My FAVORITE type of outfit is a loose fitting shirt and jeans. Add a statement necklace or scarf for some “flavor.” :) Jeans are old and the shirt is from Jane.com, but I can’t remember the boutique. And the necklace is from a boutique in my parent’s downtown.
I found these yummy quesadillas on Pinterest and can’t wait to try them! They’re from The Garden Grazer.
Random pictures from the week…
This cutie is climbing everything!
My heart melted!
Has anyone seen the movie Signs? It’s with Mel Gibson and about aliens coming to Earth. The daughter leaves her water glasses everywhere, but it ends up being the key to killing the aliens (dumping water on them) – I know weird, but Ryan always says I remind him of the girl from Signs. I just tell him, I’m preparing for the aliens. I laughed when I got in bed and saw this by my bedside.
This might be my FAVORITE thing from this week. Got proofs of school pictures and this is what I scroll down and see. He was the ONLY kid crying in his school pictures out of the entire pre-school program. This is hilarious to me. I have the EXACT same picture of me doing this when I was his age. I’ll have to find it and do a side by side. I had several friends texting me and posting on FB saying how funny it was (you can see all the kids pics on the proofs). Oh Maddox! And apparently B developed an under-bite, side smile for professional pictures. ???
