Ramblings of a Suburban Mom

Today I’m smiling because:

~We had a fabulous stay at home Spring Break and the weather has been amazing! And today is suppose to be the! Ahhh! So excited! It’s going to be SO nice out today that I am guessing B will be outside without a shirt. #illtakeapicture

~I took these guys to the “fancy” mall yesterday to go to the Lego Store and as we were walking around L said, in awe, “I don’t remember it being this beautiful”.  A kid after my own heart. That mall is beautiful. I used to work about two seconds from it and I so miss being able to run there during lunch to do some shopping!


~A little more than 500 more likes on Facebook and Ramblings of a Suburban Mom will be at 5,000 likes!  OMG! I know that is still far away but I think it’s so awesome.

~WB continues to talk more and more (although he still could not be considered a chatty kid) and that makes me smile.  His little voice is the best.  He’ll basically say anything one time, but if you try to get him to repeat it, not happening.

~My FedEx delivery tracker thing is jam packed with upcoming deliveries.  I love it!

~I am signing up for the Reddit Makeup & Nail Polish Gift Exchange!  SO excited about the though of a putting together a package for a total stranger!


~I stumbled into Skinnygirl Daily Nutrition Bars at Target yesterday!  When did this happen?  How did I not know Target sold these?

If I eat these while drinking a skinnygirl cocktail, that's double the heath benefits correct?

~I am headed to Dollar Tree this afternoon (after our morning of family fun) and I will not leave until I locate that $1 wash tape!

~I finally got ALL my packages mailed out yesterday. It took me long enough, but they are out!  Next up is contacting the winner(s) of the bracket challenge!  Be ready!

~My Facebook feed is blowing up with new babies and I love it!!!

~If B smiles I smile, so I am smiling that B is finally getting his project car tomorrow!  SO not my thing, but if he’s happy, I am happy.

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

    You do reddit gifts too? This round I picked the Tim Burton exchange because it’s my 10 yr old daughters favorite director. They are a lot of fun!!!

    1. Jennifer

      This was my first one ever! Have you done them often?

      1. Lola

        I’ve done 3 so far. It’s a different experience getting something from a stranger who is trying to pick out what you would like. I think that’s what I like the most about it, because it always ends up being something you would have never picked yourself, but ends up being perfect.

    I just bought a think of those Skinny Girl bars! They are super yummy. I love that bit about L finding the mall beautiful. I feel the same way. Hopefully I can instill this love in my daughter! 🙂 My PS Resort and April boxes have FINALLY left! The Resort box should be here today or Monday. This waiting is killing me! Also, I didn’t know Reddit did exchanges. I will have to check that out.

      My resort box appeared today! And my Fancy Mystery Box is coming monday which has me so excited.

      1. Bethany

        Yay! Mine just got here, too!! Can’t wait to read your review!!

    what stroller is that in your photo? i adore the colors! 🙂

      1. Leanne

        oh thanks! we’re having our first baby and its been taking me forever to try to decide on what stroller we want! meh. so many things to choose from!!!!

        1. Jennifer

          I really recommend the City Mini. It’s awesome. It turns on a dime. So so so nice. And it folds up with one hand which is amazing.

    Do y’all have general dollar stores where you live? They have packs with 2 rolls of washi tape for $2

    1. Jennifer

      Yep. I’m not totally sure where the closest one is yet, but I know we have them.

    Whaaat?! How did I not know about redditgift exchanges?! I totally signed up for the make up/nail polish one and can’t wait!! Thanks for the info Jen!

    1. Jennifer

      Maybe we will get each other! LOL!!! Make sure to post what send / receive. I am super excited about this!

    I signed up for the t-shirt reddit exchange, but would have signed up for the nail/make-up exchange too if I had more credits. Next time!

    1. Jennifer

      How does one earn credits? Do I need to buy them to sign up again?

      1. Alexia561

        My understanding is that you receive one credit when you sign up, then earn more for each successful exchange. So I’ll get my one credit back, plus earn one more once I complete this exchange. Next time I’ll be able to do two exchanges! Unless I’m wrong, which has been known to happen. lol
