Ramblings of a Suburban Mom

Today I’m smiling because:

~B can see!!!! His surgery went well and he’s kissed glasses and contacts for good! Sadly he wasn’t overly entertaining on the valium at all, but I am so excited for him that this went perfectly.

If that's not hot, what is?

~Our school’s PTO put on an AMAZING fundraiser yesterday for a very sick little boy from L’s school. It was at our favorite fro-yo place who donated 20% off all proceeds to his family. The turnout was insanity. The windchill was -10 yesterday (school was even canceled) and people were lined up out the door to eat frozen yogurt. I couldn’t be prouder to be part of that school!

Fro-Yo Fun!!!!!!!
Fro-Yo Fun!!!!!!!  And a creepy head ;).

~My Erin Condren notebook and acrylic box shipped and I should have them Monday! They sent me a life planner instead of a notebook in error the first time, so fingers crossed this one is right. And yes, I have a Life Planner, a Wedding Planner and a Notebook. Lots of organization happening here.

~Speaking of EC, I received another RAK (Random Act of Kindness) in the mail from the Facebook Group I am in! I LOVE seeing everyone’s posts about the RAK’s they are sending and receiving. Makes me so happy!


~We are going shopping at the Commissary on Base today!  I am so looking forward to it.

~While WB wasn’t into smiling, he also wasn’t screaming either, which makes me thrilled with their Valentine’s pictures (you can see more here)!  Mini sessions (30 minutes) are the best things ever.  That is about all my kids can take.

L is such a good smiler.

~L got to spend the night at his Nana’s house last night and is off to the movies today.  First a snow day and then spending the night at his Nana’s (and Papa’s?).  A good day indeed.  Happy kids always makes me smile!

And new legos?  Amazing.

~Sean and Catherine’s (you know from the Bachelor) wedding is on tv tomorrow and I am so excited about it!

That’s it from here!  What’s got you smiling today?  Any big plans for the weekend?

  1. I am so insanely jealous of the lasik! I can’t wait to get mine done, but it’s going to have to wait until next year. We were going to go grocery shopping today, but the sun’s not out, so I think our big deal is taking the trash out. I have to walk down a big icey hill to do it. I swear I am about to put up a job on taskrabbit for it. Maybe they can take out my cardboard too (the recycling bins are inaccessible due to snow). I can’t deal with it anymore.

      LOL. I’ll come take it out!

      And B is currently at his Lasik follow up. He drove himself there and everything. Amazing.

      1. It’s supposed to snow in a few hours, I think we’ll do it then. They’ll be more excited about it if it’s snowing 🙂

    Love your photos. I don’t think I got many of C smiling either in ours but he didn’t have his lips all pushed out so I’ll take it. I’m going to catch up with my lady next week and I can’t wait to see them. So excited.
    Love your RAK. My friend just ordered through my link so I’ll have to get on and order some more goodies. Mine is slowly coming together. I didn’t start filling it in until I got back from WDW but it is quickly becoming and addiction.

      I can’t wait to see yours!!

    Poor B! He looks a bit like Ray Charles!

    1. Jennifer

      Seriously. I was like why are you tilting your head up like that??

    Glad to hear that B is recovering nicely from his lasik surgery! And totally love the boys Valentine’s pictures! That kissing booth was too cute! And yea for RAOKs!

    1. Jennifer

      He’s amazed how perfect he can see!

    LASIK is awesome. I had it done in 2006 & wish I would have done it earlier than that. I decided to do it when my first daughter started yanking my glasses off daily as a toddler. It’s one of the best investments I’ve made. Glad to hear it went well for him.

    1. Jennifer

      I think the second I could see better after I had it done, I was like why didn’t I do this sooner??? B asked the same thing today. It’s so amazing!

    My husband never seems to respond to meds in a fun way, either. I, on the other hand, get high as a kite on a single vicodin. Can’t wait for Sean and Catherine’s wedding, either!! I am loving all the extra Bachelor specials this month!

    1. Jennifer

      Ha! Me too!!
