Hey Everyone! Is anyone else still on a sugar high from the Easter candy?
I donated blood last night so that totally justifies the fact that I also ate candy for dinner. Right?
It has been a slooooowww week on the blog. We’ve been battling some serious allergies (colds maybe?) over here in Jersey. But check out my recent posts:
I co-hosted my VERY FIRST linkup where we shared our Favorite Target Finds.
And, like every week, you can check out my Weekend Recap.
You can also follow along on Instagram.
And last but not least, here are a few of my favorites from the week:
We had a fantastic time on Easter and always use these holidays to reflect on the blessings in our lives. I know for fortunate we are to have happy and healthy children and supportive extended families. I thank God every day for all he has given me.
Hank is on Easter break from school so the boys slept over Kevin’s parents’ house one night this week and my mother-in-law sent me these adorable pictures. Of course we made the night into a mid-week date night for ourselves. We went to dinner at a new sports bar that just opened and out for ice cream. We always say that we need to do dates more often but it is always so hard to coordinate. Plus, we both work and any time we have with the kids is precious. One of the girls on our street (who is just the sweetest thing) is just getting into babysitting so I talked to her and her mom about having her sit with the boys just while Kevin and I go for walks together through the park at the end of our block.
13 Reasons Why
Yup, I jumped on this bandwagon. I haven’t finished yet but it is so well done. I wish that there was a disclaimer for any young person watching it saying something like “This is NOT how you SHOULD behave but unfortunately this is how teens actually DO behave”. I am glad though that it has such a high viewership. I’ve heard many parents say that they are watching it with their teens and I think that that is fantastic.
Game of Thrones
This one is for all my fellow GoT fans. New pics from the season were just released yesterday. Check them out HERE. I may have squealed a few times while scrolling though. If your a fan of Games of Thrones, then I’m a fan of you.
This is NOT a favorite. It is me asking for recommendations. Hank has ripped holes in the knees of THREE pairs of pants THIS WEEK alone! What in the world is this boy doing to his pants?! When I ask him, he just tells me “I played so hard that I played holes RIGHT THROUGH my pants!” OBVIOUSLY!
Does anyone have any recommendations for toddler sized pants that are a better quality than the Carters ones he is ripping? I don’t mind paying a little more if they stay in good condition because they will eventually be passed down to Reid.
