Today I’m Smiling Because…

~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!

~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?

Today I’m Smiling Because…

~It’s Saturday! I haven’t been sleeping well this week (the weather is bothering my sinuses) so I am hoping to catch up this weekend, plus who doesn’t love weekends?

~L has cooking class today and is sooo excited about it!

~A new Real World (this has to be like the 30th season) is coming soon and so is Teen Mom 2!  Get back on my screen Jenelle!

~Face Swap on Snap Chat is the funniest thing ever. I tried to swap my dogs faces (don’t judge me) and while it didn’t work, L and I were cracking up trying to make it happen.
IMG_3153~No matter how much trouble W gets in, he can always make me smile. He’s got so much personality packed into that little body. So much!

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

Today I’m Smiling Because…

~We got a snow day this week! It wasn’t that bad and we probably shouldn’t have gotten one (I mean we went out and got donuts and coffee and it didn’t take any longer to drive there than normal), but we’ll take it.
IMG_2659

~L starts his cooking class today. He’s been wanting to take one for a while and I finally found one that fit in with everyone’s schedules and has openings.

~With the help (okay fine he did everything) of an amazing freelancer, I got all the backend stuff cleaned up on my blog!

~This University of Phoenix commerical exists.  I don’t know what it is about it, but I stop whatever I am doing when it comes on so I can listen to it.

~The M2M Sale is getting pretty close to selling out.  I will be smiling extra big when it actually does sell out ;).

~B is home all weekend and it’s supposed to be in the 50’s on Sunday!    These two don’t really relate to each other, but both of them make me happy ;).

What’s got you smiling today?

Today I’m Smiling Because…

~B will be home in just a few days!

~It was warm enough outside yesterday for the boys to play in the backyard without coats on. Sure they had on super thick sweatshirts, but still. For February in Michigan, this is amazing.

~We had a great time at the DNR Outdoor Adventure Center yesterday! What a cool place!
IMG_2130

~It’s almost time for March Madness!

~The Adele Hour on Ellen this week was pure magic.

~L and I finished his Goosebumps book.  We have been reading a chapter or two a night and finally got it finished a few days ago.  On to the next one!

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

Today I’m Smiling Because…

~I had such a good time at L’s class party yesterday. It was one of the loudest parties ever (they made frog masks that had noisemakers as the tongue), but the kids had a ball.
IMG_1823

~It was an amazing subscription box week. Maybe one of the best weeks ever.  February boxes seem to be knocking it out of the park!

~W made the sweetest Valentine at school.  I am a sucker for anything with handprints, and I like how they got the A-B pattern in there ;).
IMG_1748~My parents have been so helpful with the boys with all the traveling B has been doing lately!  I am so lucky. #thankyou

~Better Call Saul is coming back on in a few days!

~W has declared Buddy his “best friend” (W has about a dozen best friends) and has decided they will now be doing everything together.  Too funny.

He also gets in my face every morning like this.

He also gets in my face every morning like this.

~This kid gave every single girl (all 834 of them) in his high school a flower for Valentine’s Day.  He didn’t want any girl not to get anything for Valentine’s Day.  How sweet is that?

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