This week was short and sweet. Spring Break is coming FAST and we're counting down the days!
Per the usual, Erika, Narci and I are sharing our FAVORITES from the week and inviting y'all to join us! Grab our graphic, link back to one (or all!) of us and share your FAVORITES from the week at the end of the post.
My FAVORITE part of the day? Me not sorting socks :) I let them watch TV while they match and pair and they actually enjoy the task.
Her FAVORITE little activity is playing with kitchen tools at the counter. She makes pies, cookies and cakes and serves them to me, Dave and her brothers.
Monday night we wrapped up the birthday celebrating at dinner with Dave's family.
This girl and her love for matching!!! FAVORITES!!!
She loves wearing the same color as me, carrying the same bag as me and doing the things I do. Not sure how long this is going to last but I'm soaking it up as long as I can. It's so cute, but also such a great reminder about the example I'm setting.
She requested princess unicorn hair. So I obliged. hahaha
I saw this earlier in the week on Facebook and laughed SO HARD! A college kid thought he was getting a care package - but instead it was trash he was supposed to take out while he was home for winter break. #momwin ;)
When you love Beauty and the Beast and are wearing Mrs. Potts and Chip shoes and can't stop staring :) I mean... this age is my FAVORITE!!!
I've gotten the Julep box for over a year and every month get a couple of new polishes and a few beauty products to try. I got the Charissa polish in my box last month and it's a new FAVORITE.
This week Mason has been all about his Goobi set that we got him for Christmas. It's been his FAVORITE toy all week and I've loved watching him build and create. I've also enjoyed getting to talk to him about angles, polygon names, etc.
And Luke has been all about these Brain Flakes. They're so much fun to play with and all three of my kids can build with them. Another FAVORITE for sure! (this would be a great birthday gift to keep on hand! Perfect for boys and girls and lots of different ages)
Her FAVORITE spot :)
On Wednesday night I met up with some of my FAVORITE girls (other Kindergarten moms!) at The Board Bar downtown McKinney for a girl's night. One of the mom's set up our event the week before and we registered online and picked out our design at the same time. When we got there they had spots marked with our names with our boards and stencils set out for us.
We distressed, sanded, stained and assembled our boards into our signs...
Then we peeled the backing off our vinyl, stuck it to the sign and started painting. Once it was all painted we peeled the stencil off and then had to use a little tool to go back through and pick off the teeny tiny pieces of sticker that were left on. The design I picked out was SUPER detailed (I hadn't really thought about this when I picked it) and it took a long time to get all the detail done, but it was relaxing at the same time.
Once all the stencil was gone we ran a blow dryer over it to make sure it was totally dry...
... and then rubbed it down with wax.
We had 10 moms there and we all brought appetizers and drinks to share, cranked the music up, had the doors open and laughed SO HARD!
I brought Sheaffer's apple dip and it was a HIT! (this is the after pic - hahaha)
And look what we made!!!
I've done the "painting with a twist" thing several times (where you paint a canvas and everyone paints the same thing), but have never actually hung anything that I painted up in my house. These turned out SO NICE that I can't wait to go back and make another.
We have no plans this weekend and it's supposed to rain and get cold again and I'm so looking forward to a cozy weekend at home.
Happy Friday, Friends!!!
