Today I’m Smiling Because…

~L’s Spring Carnival was last night and it went AMAZING! We had a huge turnout and the kids had a ball. I can barely move today, but it’s all worth it.

~L won one of the baskets at the raffle!  He won the “Family Game Night” one which he swears was the one he “totally wanted”.  Looks like we’ll be playing some Jenga this weekend!

~Thanks to my amazing mom W got to go to the Carnival and have a little fun, but didn’t have to stick around for any of the clean-up!  THANK YOU MOM!

~I am loving the spoilers for the POPSUGAR + CFDA Box.

~I was able to trade for a few more of the new Lego + Disney minifigures.  These are so hard to find!

~We are planting flowers this weekend. I am so excited to get them all picked out and in the ground.  It’s going to look so pretty.

What are you smiling about today?

Today I’m Smiling Because…

~L turned 8 yesterday! It felt like such a “big” number birthday for some reason and I even think he looks older!

~L brought home all of his “Star of the Week” drops yesterday and reading them was amazing. Each classmate fills out a “drop” (it’s just a piece of paper shaped like a raindrop) with encouraging words, reasons why they like that person, etc. for the Star of the Week and also a draws a picture. It’s just so sweet to see what they write to each other and it makes them so happy. I love it!

~It’s almost Olympics time!

~B’s not traveling again for another few weeks.

~Thanks to you all I have so many great new shows to check out! Thank you!

~This guy.  We were running errands this week and I mentioned we needed to go to the Apple Store.  And he commented “Are we are going apple picking?”. I am not sure if he was kidding me or not, but I was cracking up.

~The May Love with Food box had a Tieks $50 gift Card!

That’s it from here!  What are you smiling about this week?

Today I’m Smiling Because…

~My boys made me the best Mother’s Day gifts at school. I am so thankful their teachers take the time to do these kinds of things because I love them!

~This may sound silly, but I am smiling because I did my nails last night and I did NOT smudge them or mess them up before they dried.

~All the laundry that I have been avoiding and putting off all week is finally folded and put away. If only I would learn to just do a load or two at a time. Nope. I like to do an entire week of laundry at once.

~Costco rocked this week. I have been eyeing this Serge Normant travel set since I first saw it at Costco but was not about to pay $29.99 for it. Well, they must not be planning on carrying it at the store anymore because it was marked down to $4.97! Yes, please!

~We have been getting a bunch of donations in for the spring carnival at L’s school. Thank you parents.

~It’s almost time to plant our flowers and get the garden started.

That’s it from here!  What are you smiling about this week?

~B and I watched Daddy’s Home last night. Totally cracked me up.

~It’s Saturday and B is home all weekend!  I don’t know what we are going to do, but whatever it is we will have fun.

~These boys.  Now that it’s started warming up (well some days it’s warm anyway) they want to play outside non-stop. And who could blame them really?  They’ve been stuck inside most of the winter!

~My parents put their boat in the water up-north, which is a sure sign summer is coming.

~My inbox is on the verge of being cleaned out!  This is huge!

That’s it from here.  What’s got you smiling this week?

~B is home! He’s been in San Antonio since last Wednesday, but he got back late night. We are thrilled to have him home.

~L got his last progress report of the year and it’s awesome! There are always things to work on of course, but I am super pleased.

~W is 4 and he’s being so funny about it. Every morning he wakes up and asks if he’s still 4 and then proclaims he still feels 3. Cracks me up.

~I got the Subscription Box List totally updated! The number of new boxes that come out every week is mind boggling, but it’s updated!

That’s it from here.  What’s got you smiling this week?

Today I’m Smiling Because…

~My cousin and her kids are in town! L is so excited to be able to hang out with his favorite person ever for the day.

~My giant vacation pile of laundry is all finished and put away. Yay!

~It’s been SO nice out that even W got to play outside at preschool yesterday morning. I don’t think this has happened since last fall.

~Only a few more months till the Olympics. I am SO into the Olympics and will basically watch any of the events just because it’s the Olympics. Heck, sometimes I even watch it in different languages (because of the tape delay in the States).

~We got POPSUGAR spoilers yesterday and the Allure Beauty Thrills presale starts Monday (you can get on the list here to be notified of the presale).

~I took the boys out for ice-cream after school yesterday and it was just so nice.  They had no trouble selecting their flavors (sometimes it’s hard because there are so many choices) and everyone was just in such good moods.  I loved it!

That’s it from here!  What’s got you smiling today?

Today I’m Smiling Because…

~It’s Spring Break and the boys are off school for an entire week ;).

~I finally figured out how to get ALL of my e-mail accounts to show up in “Mail” on my laptop. This was way more of a project than it should have been.

~I totally fell for a few of the April Fool’s Day jokes I heard yesterday.  Like the one that said Hollywood Studios at Disney was closing on Sunday for good.  It popped up in my Facebook feed and it was early and I forgot what day it was. Too funny!
Screen Shot 2016-04-01 at 10.16.24 PM~That pesky leak in my garage roof has been fixed!  I’ve been stressed about the roof leak no one could figure out for so long, but not anymore.

~W had an amazing time at his bounce house field-trip last week.  I mean he had a blast.  He hasn’t napped in like two years, but I actually thought he might need a nap after.  He played his heart out!

What are you smiling about today?

Today I’m Smiling Because…

~B and I went out to dinner last night and got the largest pretzel I have ever seen as an “appetizer”. We were cracking up!

~I got all the pictures cleared off my iPhone!  It’s always way more of a chore than it should be.

~My cousins are coming down from up-north today and then the Easter celebrations, including the big family egg hunt tomorrow, can begin.

~The boys have been playing outside a ton lately.  I feel like this is it, no more snow and freezing cold temps!
IMG_4686

~The Legoland near us just opened!  I might be more excited about this than the kids, but once we go they’ll be into it as well.

~I know I saw it a lot, but we have the best neighbors.  It’s just a great crew here and I couldn’t be happier!

Today I’m Smiling Because…

~Well, I am certainly not smiling about Michigan State’s loss yesterday (WHAT ON EARTH WAS THAT MESS), but hey what can you do? They admitted the better team won yesterday and handled it like men.

~We are going to see Zootopia this afternoon!

~This Apple + Cookie Monster commercial is so cute!

~These two were fighting like, well, brothers do, so I had them sit next to each other on the couch for a little breather. And what do you know? Two seconds later they are CRACKING up at their shared annoyance with me for making them stop fighting.  I couldn’t stop laughing either.

~Teen Mom 2 will be back on my tv on Monday night!

~B made it home safely from his latest trip!

~Michigan State won their first game in the Big Ten Tournament yesterday. On to the next one!

~L and W took the sweetest selfie and added it to W’s iPad as a screen saver.  I love it.

~My POPSUGAR Must Have Resort Box is on it’s way.  It’s 6.1lbs and I can’t wait to see what’s in it.

~This week was crazy busy, but I am smiling that it went relatively well!  And I am smiling even bigger because it’s almost over.

~I am so proud of L for having such a good report card.  Hearing good things about my child from their teacher always makes me smile.

~We are getting an extra hour of daylight tomorrow!

~Coffee!  B is going on a coffee run this morning and you have no idea how happy that makes me.  It’s much needed.

What’s got you smiling today?
