5 on Friday

It’s Friday!!  Tab was out of town this week and I am SO GLAD it’s Friday!   We’re looking forward to a great Easter weekend!  Hope you are too!  Here are today’s 5…

#1 Nixon’s Easter party
Yesterday, Nixon’s class had an egg hunt and a picnic lunch.

I was CRACKING up at Nixon’s “basket”.  It was the Cars bag!  hahaha!  We waited until yesterday morning to find his basket and it’s MIA!!!

I grabbed the boys a Happy Meal and they were in heaven!

#2 Public Service Announcement…I almost didn’t go up to Nixon’s lunch.  It was right in the middle of the day.  The teachers had told me only one parent had said they were coming.  I had things I needed to get done at home and some errands to run.  But…Wednesday night the lady who teaches our study at church talked about “Quality Time” as a love language.  She also talked about how it’s important to spend focused attention with each kid.  I had “mom guilt” during the class and decided I should go to his lunch the next day.  Who cares about the laundry, right?  LADIES…listen to this!!  Yesterday…in the middle of the boys eating their lunch and our table talking about what cartoons are their favorites, Nixon leans over to me (at school) and whispers, “Mom, I love you”.  I MELTED!! 

Mamas, today let the laundry pile up a little or sit your cell phone down…who knows what your distraction might be, but ALL these little moments are slowly passing us by!  We only have a SMALL amount of time with our kiddos…don’t take these moments for granted!!  Okay…thanks for letting me rant!

#3 Johnny from Y & R
I’ve mentioned before that I’ve been told Johnny from Young & the Restless looks like Bowen.  Think it has a LOT to do with the haircut!  ha!  But…check out Johnny’s shirt from Wednesday’s episode!

Now…check out Nixon’s shirt!!  hahaha!  Apparently Genoa City has a Gap too or Victoria Newman enjoys online shopping as well!  ha!

I looked to see if they still had the shirt in stock.  This is the only color option they had left…super cute!

#4 Birchbox
I blogged about my love for Birchbox here.  I just received my April box and thought it’d be fun to share my goodies with you.  Here are this month’s treasures…Color Club nail polish, Yogini by Harvey Prince, Number 4 High Performance Clarifying Shampoo (and I got a bonus reconstructing masque as well), Sumitas eyeliner, and a KIND healthy grain bar.  Super fun!!  I can’t wait to try it all!!

For only $10 a month, you can sign up here.
I love that for only $10, I get to sample products and then I can purchase anything I truly love.
You need to check it out!!  I’m seriously like a kid on Christmas when it arrives!!  haha!

Also…when you receive your products, if you go online and review each product you will earn 10 points for each product.  So in one month you can earn 50 points.  100 points is $10.  After two or three months, of just reviewing products you’ll have enough “money” in your account to purchase your favorite thing!   This might be confusing, but if you signed up or have questions about this e-mail me!  alittlebitofeverything83@yahoo.com

#5  Nixon Celebrates AGAIN!
M & G took Nixon out last night to celebrate his birthday.  He chose the restaurant AND they let him choose his own birthday gifts!!  He had a GREAT time!!

    I am so glad you "ranted". Although instead of ranting, I actually think you gave some really good and wonderful advice. You are exactly right, these little moments are slipping by! We must enjoy them all!

    Such a great reminder about precious time with our kids, thank you for that. Nixon is obviously giving Ebby Lee some competition in the fashion department. How fun his exact shirt was on TV.

    It is funny how a few simple words from our kids can melt your heart and change your outlook!
    Happy Easter to you and your family!

    Loved this post and your little "rant", such a perfect reminder to cherish these sweet moments when they are little. My 4 year old daughter's best nervous habit when we are at a place she is feeling a little shy is to say "mom, I love you" and it's about the cutest thing ever. She was getting her haircut the other day by a new stylist to her and while she was in the chair and the lady was trying to talk to her she would look at me and say "mom, i love you"…funny nervous habit but I'll take it!!!

    Such a good reminder to mamas, even new mamas like me! I was reading this while nursing and rocking my little boy back to sleep this morning and just when I got to the "rant" his little hand grabbed mine in his sleep. Umm..tear! I think he totally agrees with you!
