Friday iPhone Dump 15

Friday iPhone Dump is simply a summary of my week in iPhone (or whatever) pictures! Here’s what we were up to!

2014-05-01

1.  Horrible picture, but Baxter really does sit in the window.  Hops right up there and watches the entire neighborhood for us.  WB likes to play trains up there too and look for cars (there rarely are any cars though).

2. The line at Starbucks the other morning.  It was worth it though.  So worth it.  And the fact that we weren’t waiting in line inside?  Even better.

3.The Snackeez in action!  WB’s is almost bigger than him, but he too likes it!  Seriously though, don’t order online like I did.  Bed, Bath & Beyond.  $9.99, plus you can use a 20% off coupon.  That’s a steal right there.

2014-05-012

4. It’s getting to be a tight fix in the car, but Baxter always goes with them.  Always. I think he’ll be excited when WB can drive it on his own and the two of them can cruise together.  L really only drives it now because WB wants to go for rides in it.  Soon enough he’ll be able to reach the peddles!

5. These pictures kill me.  They are L’s Spring Pictures from school and I totally think they look like Senior Pictures.  Totally.  And that super fake smile he was rocking?  Ha!  Totally get that same one when I try and get him to smile for me.  I will be buying a the entire package like always.

6.  I got my Reddit gift exchange goodies!  I also shipped mine yesterday!!  How cute are these OPI minis??  It’s like this person knew how much I loved mini polishes!

2014-05-014

7. WB has seen me take a “few” subscription box pictures and it appears he wants to follow in my footsteps.  He got his camera out, set his train out and started yelling CHEESE!  I was dying.  For the record I don’t talk to the things I take the pictures of ;).

8. I was putting together a few goodies boxes for my friends daughters and came across all my EOS balms.  Oh my.  I didn’t have the “Sweet Mint” one, so of course I scooped that one up at Target before I took this picture.  I actually think it’s missing the strawberry one too, but I have that one around somewhere.  I do still need that holiday vanilla though….

9. They are so sweet.  I just want to bottle this up and save some of it before they start trying to beat each other up and roughhousing and all that!

How was your week?  What’s up for the weekend? Any big plans?

1. Ahh, how cute are these two boys?  They have been so cheerful and smiley this week!   I have no explanation for WB’s tank top.  Makes his muscles look big!

2. Batman!!!  L got into a fight with a step ladder yesterday and lost (he takes after his uncle), so if you see a bruise on his cheek in pictures, you’ll know why.  I think it was a good lesson in why we don’t screw around using ladders and he agrees.

3. I cannot stop buying these. I just can’t.  I think some of the Target’s went to 90% today, but mine was still at 70% off.  If I can find any more of these at 90% off, they will all be mine.  All of them.

4. He sleeps with his new little doggie every single night.  And he has also hijacked what used to be L’s favorite blanket.  I risked him waking up by turning on the light just so I could take this.  Luckily he kept on snoozing!

5. My thredUP haul!  Once again it was all perfect and I am already browsing for my next order.

6. The sandbox.  WB is obsessed.  Just obsessed.  I think he will be spending the entire summer playing in the sandbox.

Recently Updated63

7. Sometimes if I want to get the boys (the boy boys) to pose for a picture I will get the dogs to do it first.  Works every time.  L and WB can’t stand the thought of JUST the dogs being in a picture and have to join in.

8. So handsome ;).  I love when his hair is spiky.  I feel like he looks so grown up.

9.  LOL.  Notice the crossed feet!  Ha.  He’s busy playing itsy bitsy spider here, but his real favorite game is that cat that repeats whatever you say when you talk to it.  Does anyone know what I am talking about?  L used to love it too.  I

1. It’s totally a 2 year-old thing to want to help unload the dishwasher isn’t it?  L will do it, but WB likes doing it!  And note that he is standing on the dishwasher door in this picture. It’s the only way he can reach the top!  Oh and B, don’t yell at him or me about how this could break the dishwasher.  He’s cute.  And helpful.

2. When you are sick and not in the mood to eat, but need to eat something, well it calls for a muffin tin meal.  And it worked.  L was happy and eating, which made me happy.

3. We were at CVS way too long waiting on L’s prescription earlier in the week and were quickly running out of things to do in there.  So L tried on about a dozen pairs of sunglasses and made me take his picture.  LOL!!!  And yes, he is sick in this picture.  I swear this was 10 minutes after we left the doctors.  #motrinforthewin

4. OMG if you have a Lego lover at your house and don’t have this Family House yet, you must get it. It is the coolest lego set ever.  At least I think so.  It has a light inside that really turns on, the house opens and if you get bored with this set up, you can build it two other ways .  So cool.

5. I wanted to get a picture of Baxter, but no, WB had to stick himself right in there! Now if I would have asked WB to stand there first he would have ran away.  Figures!

6. I am pleased to report that this snow has all melted and also pleased that we broke the snow record.  And shhh, don’t tell anyone, but I’d like to get over 100 inches this year.  I think we’d need 4-6 more?  Come on Michigan, we can do it!

7. How B got this car to fit in the garage is beyond me.  It fits.  Our stuff fits.  And our other two cars fit.  I have to hand it to him.  He did it.

8. Tell me this guy doesn’t think his big brother hung the moon? And to WB he did.  He’s the funniest, builds the best train tracks and makes funny farting noises.  What’s not to love?

9. It’s been a long week and this is happening today.  Maybe once.  Maybe twice.  B said I need to use his birthday reward.  Challenge accepted!!

How was your week?  What’s up for the weekend? Any big plans?

1. B got his birthday present a tad early and was SO excited!  He got his set of pots and pans and couldn’t wait to cook something up in them.  He claims they are SO much better. If you so say baby ;).

2.  LOL.  That’s a stuffed cat L got at IKEA yesterday.  And B is sitting in the castle tent we got there too.  I have no idea why we were sitting in the tent (after the kids went to bed no less), but we were.

3.  The entire IKEA haul.  Well, minus a few of the kids toys, the tent and the nail polish racks.  But close.  I am pretty pumped about the ice cream sand toy set. $2.99!

Recently Updated2

4. It’s exhausting being L ;).  If you look closely, you will be able to see that he is covered in chalk.  Covered in it.  Ha.  And when we went inside, he was all, what? I’m not dirty, I don’t need to change??

5. I think it was about 60 degrees in this picture.  Which in Michigan in April is HOT.  Still he wears the flipeez hat. I wondered at first if it was just going to be one of those cool for 5 minutes items.  Not even.

6. And the WB is finally big enough to hold his own on the playground.  He’s a little crazy though (i.e. he has NO fear), so someone always needs to be right there.  He saw L across the play area, took off running at full speed and then pushed him.  And they both cracked up.  Brothers ;).

Recently Updated3

7. The farm!  It looks empty here, but trust me, it wasn’t.  The farm is one of our favorite activities because it’s close and cheap (usually free).  And of course there are animals to visit with.

8. My little farm boys.  B grew up on a farm (and was actually telling L about his pet cow “Tiny” last night) and these two probably wish they did too.

9. The main purpose of the IKEA trip was to get a “little doggie” for WB.  He’s obsessed with L’s and likes to snag it to fall asleep with.  So now they both have one.  L’s well loved one is on the right.  WB’s new one is on the left.  It won’t be long until his is all broken in and worn too!

How was your week?  Any big highlights??

1. L got his backordered Minecraft book from the Book Fair and has moved my Minecraft on the iPad to Minecraft on the computer.  He’s addicted and I still don’t get it.  However, he is super excited to learn to read so he can learn all these secret Minecraft tricks, so I’m down for it.

2. OUTSIDE!  We got to play outside three days this week.  I think I’ve been outside more this week than I was the entire winter.

3. This was a Plated meal from last week, but it looked so perfect that I had to include it here.  This was also the meal that B was looking for chopsticks for.

Recently Updated521

4. My SIL sent over some goodies this week and in the bag were two fabulous Santa hats!  You don’t think I could wait till next year to test them out do you?  I think not!

5. Sweet WB.  And L’s”little doggy”.  I have never met a baby more excited to go to bed than this guy.  He RUNS upstairs when I announce it’s bedtime.  Sometimes he plays in his crib and talks to his toys for a while and other times he goes right to bed.  But he’s always extra happy when L gives him little doggy to sleep with.

6. He does not understand the idea behind rubber stamps, but he totally enjoyed playing with them!  Also rubber stamps are “tampons” in french.  Just thought you should know that.

Recently Updated524

7. Don’t let that face fool you.  He had a good time at the Tigers Opening Day this year!  He spent 3+ hours outside in the sun on a weekday.  What’s not to enjoy there?

8.  WB goes Krogering with me and is usually rewarded with whatever samples they have out at the time (except the booze samples – I don’t let him have those) and this week they had cake samples!  At 8am!  He hit the jackpot!

9. And finally, my cousin(s) are in Florida right now and were going to Downtown Disney and were looking for suggestions on what to do there.  Umm, go and get grab bags of course!  So they did!!  I think they got some great ones and I cannot wait to go there this summer and get one myself!

1. Word on the street (okay Instagram) is that Birthday Cake M&M’s are now available.  I need to find these.  Because I pretty much like anything birthday cake and something tells me these will be no exception.

2. My boys.  Minus one.  It blows my mind daily how big L is getting and I can’t believe that Baxter is going to be 8 this year!  Insanity I tell you.  That’s my puppy.  How is he going to be 8???

3. This is not my picture (it’s from a Facebook group I am in), but these are the washi tape sets I am after from Marshalls / TJ Maxx.  I found one today (the navy and green), but there was no sign of the others.  How can I not need these?  I was telling my mom about them and she was like oh, have you used up your other washi tape already?  Ha.  Stop it mom.  You know I haven’t.

4. This guy has trains everywhere in our room.  He sleeps with them, takes them in the car, scatters them in the living room, they are everywhere.  Luckily for him there are still plenty left in the choo-choo room.

5. I love when WB climbs up on someone’s lap and pretty much just takes over whatever they were doing.  Oh you were reading an e-mail?  Sorry, not anymore.  We’re playing a game now.

6. My mom watched WB one day this week and as luck would have it, one of her neighbors / besties / my friends mom had her grandkids over too, so they came over and played together.   The best part was how they were all still in their pjs.  LOL!!!

Recently Updated453

7. My and my crew!  WB was sitting on my lap watching Frozen and then L came over and sat on my lap and I was like I need to capture this moment!!

8. My porch one day this week!  I love when it looks like this!!!

9. I am telling you, I cannot go to the store and not buy chapstick.  Dollar Spot Peeps chapstick?  Yeah, I need that.  After all, it’s only a $1…..

1. WB is addicted to broccoli cheese soup at Panera.  Like so much so that he gets his own bowl when we go there now.  He dips his bread in, eats it on a big spoon, just like a grown up.  He doesn’t know how to blow on it to cool it down yet (he makes farting noises at it instead), but he’ll learn.

2. I couldn’t resist that Erin Condren Notebook sale and picked (another) one up and some stickers.  In my defense it started because I had to order gift cards for the 4,000 Likes Giveaway.  Anyway, when my order came Monday it had a Golden Ticket!  Eeeek!!!!!!!  They put them in random boxes around St. Patricks Day and I was lucky enough to get one!

3. Like all the pictures of food I am NOT eating this week?  Why didn’t I find all this magic last week?  Salted Caramel Brownie Brittle?  How could I not buy that?  What if we have a big snowstorm and I am stuck inside for days and days and can’t get any fruit or vegetables.  Then I will need these.  LOL!

Recently Updated421

4.  What is that on the ground?  Oh yeah, GRASS! It’s a mess, but our snow is finally melting (very slowly) and you can see it!  And what’s WB doing here?  He’s calling the dogs inside.  He stands at the door or on the porch and yells for them.  Too funny.

5. How sweet are these two? Snuggled under the blanket just hanging out.  I love it.

6. So not only does he eat soup, but he also likes salads.  Chopped ones at that.  I was sitting at the table eating and he was throwing a fit and wanted me to pick him up.  I thought he just wanted to sit on my lap, but no, he grabbed the fork from my bowl and went to town.  Really kid?

Recently Updated43

7. L’s conferences were this yesterday and I am always entertained going in their classroom.  It makes me want to be a teacher.  Sort of.  It just makes me want to hang out at school more I guess?

8. They always have a book fair during conferences and they take the kids down there a few days before and then send home their wish lists so parents can shop for gifts or whatever.  I picked up some of L’s wish list goodies and he was thrilled!!!  I believe he put every lego book they had on his wish list ;).

9. People always ask for pictures of Baxter and Buddy, so here they are!  They are ready for Spring weather to get here too so they can get outside and play more!  Come on already!

1. We got some super cool sand molds and sand (like cool moldable sand) from an out of town friend and the boys loved it!  And I did too.  It made me feel like I was at the beach (well kind of) and was oddly calming to mold sand with the boys.

2. This cover speaks to me.  Mason jar mugs and a cool drink dispenser?  Chalkboard background and fonts too?  I love it all.  And I feel like I need those mugs.  Oh yeah and whatever drink is in them.

3. WB was so excited to get frozen yogurt yesterday.  He was running to the machines and we were cracking up.  And when he was done eating, he took his boots off and started dancing to the music they had going.  He knows how to have a good time ;).

Recently Updated412

4. I am loving this little guy.  Look for it in my March Best of the Boxes post!  And probably in a future giveaway.  I never knew I needed an elephant ring holder until one appeared in a subscription box.

5. Ahh, before the snow on Wednesday and the freezing weather yesterday, we had Monday when it was 50+ degrees out.  And we took full advantage.  That is WB sliding down a watermelon slice.  Last summer he was too little to really do it on his own.  Not anymore!

6.  Monday night also included a fun dinner at Bar Louie with the boys.  Those two scarfed down our chips and dips app in record time.  It gave me a glimpse into the teen years and they will surely be eating us out of house and home!  Luckily they kept their hands off my chicken avocado tacos.  OMG they were insanely good.

Recently Updated414

7.  I spied this the other day at Kroger.  Someone should give us all an award for this winter.  Not only was it COLD, it was a cold snowy mess all winter.  So far this winter we have had 90.7 inches of snow in Detroit.  On average we get like 40 inches a year.  And the record for the snowiest winter EVER in Detroit is 93.6 inches and that was umm, 100 years ago.  This has been nuts.  But seriously, snow a few more inches so we can at leafs break the record.  No one wants to be 2nd best (or worst really).

8. Speaking of nuts, this is the notification I saw on Wednesday when I tracked one of my packages.  The mail never made it here Wednesday.  They didn’t come anywhere near our neighborhood on Wednesday, which listen, is fine.  It’s snowy and the roads suck.  But I can assure you that no magical notice was left anywhere telling me to clear out my mailbox.  Who would have left it since the mailman didn’t even drive down my street that day?  Where would they have put it if my mailbox was blocked?  So many questions.  No answers.

9.  And finally, these two.  Do you think they look alike?  I so cannot tell.  In general I think no???  They certainly both are adorable though.

1. WB and I had some errands to run this week and we could have handled them at the indoor mall, but nope, we opted for the freezing cold outdoor one.  We needed some fresh  air.  It’s been a long long long winter.  We can’t even go on a walk around the block around here because it’s all such a snowy / icy mess!

2. This is a brief summary of Paczki Day (which is what we call Fat Tuesday in the north).    For the record, I think the cream filled paczkis are the best.

3. Not only did B drop L off at school today, but he also returned home with Starbucks.  And the new Vanilla Macchiato at that.  Delicious.

2014-03-071
4. WB isn’t too trustworthy with an actual cup (he knows how to use it, but he likes to dump things on the ground), but he does LOVE using them.

5. L is such a proud big brother.  Even with all his friends around at library night at his school, he still made sure to check in on WB and see if he was okay ;).

6. No idea what they were working on on the computers, but they both really enjoyed it.  We are so headed back to that library tomorrow!

2014-03-07
7. How cute is this new wallflower turtle from BBW?  Love it.  And if I bring enough summery things in the house, I am certain summer will arrive more quickly!

8. You can’t see Baxter’s static problem too well here, but trust me, it’s there!

9. Does anyone use PINCHme?  It’s a free sample site and I finally got some samples!!  I used to do so well with free samples and I totally need to get back into that.

1. WB and little doggie.  I swear, he’s excited to take a nap when he has L’s doggie.  And seriously, L doesn’t mind that much.  He has loaned him out on occasion.

2. This is my street.  Isn’t it a huge mess?  That is just ice caked on the street.  Ruts everywhere.  Such a disaster!

3. The new Kroger that just opened near us is so much better early in the morning and without a ton  of people.  WB and I had a nice time wandering around the other morning with our Starbucks.

2014-02-262

4. Look at this magic.  I hope that this appears in the freezer section near me sometime soon!

5. L insists that he doesn’t like to play trains anymore, yet when WB is playing he likes to tell him that he is doing it wrong and has to show him the right way ;).

6. I know I posted this washi yesterday, but I don’t care.  It’s pretty and I just really like looking at it.

2014-02-263

7. I need this to stop popping up on my phone.  I don’t know what my voicemail password is and I also don’t care to find out.  I don’t know the last time I even bothered to check it.  B says he has the same thing going on with his phone.  We are so meant for each other!

8. This is from earlier in the week when L was sick.  He’s totally fake smiling here, but he really was feeling better.

9. And finally, L’s letter to his cousin who is at camp.  For every letter he receives while at camp he has to kiss a (fake) deer, so we made sure to write!

How was your week?  Headed out tonight??
