5 Things-5.3.21

You guys!  After today my kids only have TWO more Mondays of school before SUMMER!  When I say it like that, this school year is basically over.  Right?

I’m popping in today with a quick 5 Things to share with you!

#1 Photo-A-Day on Instagram
First of all, I’m SO PUMPED about all of you who are joining Shay and I for the Instagram challenge this month.  Be sure to use the #photoadaywitherikaandshay  Today, we’re sharing #FAMILY so be sure to post about yours!

I might be taking the theme a little too far but this is our menu for the three days I’m cooking at home…
*Breakfast Tacos-I allow everyone to make their own and most of my kids eat 2 on this night!  We always have bacon and eggs with a variety of toppings.
*Chicken Fajitas-our local grocery store sells fresh chicken sliced up with onions and peppers.  They’re really good on the grill but in the winter we made them on the stove and I liked them even more.  I was able to get the veggies really nice and cooked.  These are FAVORITES!
*Baked Tacos-NEED I SAY MORE?
Basically, I’m reminding you to add a little yummy goodness to your menu this week!  Oh, and Tab’s Guacamole, of course!

#3 Mamacita Shirt/Earrings
After my Insta-Story on Thursday, I got questions about my tee.  You can find it on Amazon here.  True story-all of my kids refer to me as “Mamacita” but Britt uses it the most.  My earrings are old but these are similar.

A few weeks ago I met Shay and Sheaffer for a lunch date at the mall, we walked around a bit, and did a little shopping.  Sheaffer encouraged me to try this Brazilian Kiss Lip Butter and Sheaffer has bossed me around MANY times but this time might have been my favorite.  I apply it before bed every night and it adds extra moisturize to my lips plus it smells DIVINE!  It’d make a great little teacher gift or even a Mother’s Day gift too!

#5  Baseball Weekend

Nixon’s tournament got rained out which became a blessing because then all six of us got to go support Bowen this weekend.  Typically, we have to divide and conquer but since Tab coaches Bowen’s team he always goes with him and I always go with Nix.  It’s always a rough start to my Monday if we get home late Sunday night…well yesterday, we had a BIG break in the middle of the day and were close enough to just drive home.  Got ready for the week in between games!  It was perfect!

Hope you had the BEST weekend too and are ready to conquer this Monday!
