~My Spartans won! Sure it’s going to be a rough game tomorrow, but it’s March and anything can happen. #gogreen

~We ordered Plated this week for the first time in forever and dinner last night was so good. I’d forgotten how much we loved Plated.

~99.9% of the snow around here has melted! Bring on the green grass!

~I’m still smiling about L’s report card and good Parent-Teacher Conferences.  And I am also smiling because he’s flat out happy at school and is a good friend to his classmates.

~WB did okay (not good, but not awful either) at his first movie! Also, you need to go see Cinderella. It’s a fantastic movie.

~An old college friend of mine had a healthy baby boy this week!

~We hit up the playground the other night after dinner and had a ball.  Sometimes it’s the little spur of the moment activities that turn out to be the most fun.

~L had a great time at his pajama dance at school last night. His school does such fun stuff!

~My PopSugar Resort box is showing up in FedEx tracking online!  I can’t wait to see what’s in that 3.3lb box!

~The hunt is over.  I was finally able to get Skye on Amazon last night.  #missonaccomplished

Skye!

~My cousin found a cute new place to live in NYC.  She’s been stressing big time and I am so happy she found a place!

~Spring.  It’s supposed to be close to 70 degrees here on Monday.  Sure it might snow again after that, but whatever.  The end of the cold weather is near!

~I am loving the way the search feature works on here now.  It totally sucked before, but not anymore!  Results will start popping up as you search or just enter a term and all posts with that term in it will pop-up in summary form on the results page.  WAY better than that mess that was happening here the last few weeks.

~B and I had such a nice day date yesterday.  We hit up one of the casinos in the city (and won a little $$) and then had lunch at a yummy little deli B wanted to check out.

~ WB is FINALLY into reading books before bedtime and nap time.  Granted, it’s mainly the same book and I can read it with my eyes shut (and I swear he has it memorized too), but it’s a start.

~Of my boys. Listening to them laugh and giggle and then insist on sleeping in the same bed?  It’s the best.

~We got March PopSugar spoilers last night! And it looks like it’s a great month.

~From the looks of it on Facebook it’s Daddy-Daughter Dance season and I absolutely LOVE seeing all the pictures of my friends and their little girls all dressed up.  So sweet!

~At the urging of my friend Jen, I signed up with Keep Collective (they are related to Stella & Dot so it’s not a huge stretch).  I’ve been eyeing their bracelets and figured heck, why not?

Keep Collective Bracelets!

~After a little maintenance gone wrong, things on the blog seem to be back to normal.

~Of this “Love Has No Labels” video. So amazing.

~Instead of just deleting e-mails I’m not interested in (and never will be) I started to actually unsubscribe from them.  Sure it’s tedious but Unroll.Me stopped working for me and my inbox was a disaster every day. Not anymore!

~We are getting an extra hour of daylight everyday starting tomorrow. I.cannot.wait!

Don't forget!!

~We have no plans for the entire weekend (that I can remember anyway) and it is supposed to snow on Sunday. That’s a pretty good weekend in my book.

~B, L and I went out for fro-yo after he got out of school yesterday. It was so nice to just be able to spend some time with just him. He’s such a good kid!

He sure loves his frozen yogurt!

~Christina Aguilera nailed her impressions of Britney Spears and the other artists on Jimmy Fallon this week.  I was amazed.  That show is always so enjoyable to watch.

~This week at Costco my mom and I ran into the larger display of SkinnyPop Popcorn on the planet!  I giggle every time I look at this picture.  I know it’s a warehouse store, but it’s not a SkinnyPop warehouse!

~Of “the dress” and “the lamas”.  So ridiculously entertaining.  And I would like to report that if I hold my phone sideways and look at the dress, I do see it being blue and black.

~This guy can always make me smile.  He’s just so funny.  I can’t even describe how much he makes all of us laugh.

~B and I had a great date night last night. We went to dinner at a local place that we hadn’t been to in ages, didn’t have to wait for a table and the food was just fabulous. So nice.

~My boys have been extra sweet to each other lately.  Sure they fight and annoy each other, but at the end of the day, they are still best friends.

~It’s going to be “warm” today!  Yesterday is was -20, but today it’s going to be nearly 30 degrees!  Break out the shorts!

~B cleaned the inside and washed the outside of my car last week.  Not only does it look fabulous, but he’s still talking to me.  LOL!  My car is always a disaster.

~I am lucky enough to have dogs.  You’re never alone when you have a dog.

~I found lots of good 90% off Valentine’s Day clearance items at Target.  I should be stocked on goodie bag items / stocking stuffers for a while now!

~The Oscars are on tomorrow night! I can’t wait to see the dresses.

~I didn’t wake up with a headache today!  I haven’t been sleeping too well these past few nights and have been waking up with a headache that will not quit.  But I feel great today.

~It’s Valentine’s Day! We’re staying in with the kids tonight and are planning on ordering heart shaped pizza.  And maybe making some cookies during the day as well.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

~L rocked his spelling test again this week, had a great time at his Valentine’s Day party AND it’s winter break so that means sleeping in for a week!

~B and I had such a nice day together yesterday (thanks again to my mom for watching WB). We ran a few errands, went out to lunch and snuck a few fun stops in there along the way.  Just a good day with my husband.

~One of the fun stops we made yesterday was to the casino for the free gift they were giving away.  You never know what the gifts are going to be until you get there and sometimes they are lame and sometimes they are great!  Yesterdays was great and well worth the trip.

“Free” Gifts

~WB has been doing well (not amazing, but well), with staying in his big boy bed at night.  I’m so proud of him.

~It’s going to be FREEZING cold here tonight / tomorrow and while that doesn’t really make me smile, it does give me an excuse to stay in, turn on the fire and cuddle with B and the little boys.

~My PINCHme samples came this week.  It takes a while to get them after you sign up, but it’s totally free and a fun way to try new stuff.

~I fixed it! I fixed the crazy issues with posts not showing up here for some people! You have no idea how excited about this I was / am.
~The Magic Mike XXL Trailer was released.

~L aced his Spelling Test this week!  Spelling (and grammar for that matter) is not my strongest subject, so I know he didn’t get it from me.

~I am getting a new Nephew in May! That makes eight boys and one girl between our boys and B’s siblings little ones. Boys everywhere!

My Boys!

~Shark Tank was all new last night! And FunBites was on and got a deal. I love FunBites.

~We got February 2015 PopSugar spoilers yesterday!

~I got a great night’s sleep last night.  I wasn’t sleeping well this week at all, but last night was great.

~Last night’s muffin tin meals were a hit.  And no, WB doesn’t eat all that.  However, if both boys don’t get the same exact thing, well, it’s not good!

~The Grammy’s are on tomorrow!

~Detroit’s “Walking Man” got surprised with a car yesterday.  This man is such an example of hard work and commitment!

~I am getting closer to figuring out why some people aren’t seeing the current posts on my here.

~My boys are just fantastic kids. Sure they can be wild and crazy (after all, they are little boys), but at the end of the day, they are great little people.

~L’s winter break is just around the corner!

~B and I have a little day date planned today.  My parents volunteered to take the boys so they didn’t have to come to IKEA with us, so B and I are hitting up IKEA alone and are planning to have lunch in the D (the D = Detroit)!

~I went to TJ Maxx for the first time in ages and found some great deals including some adorable Kate Spade things.  I was in the market for a new wallet and this one is perfect.

~I finally got all of my packages shipped and out the door.  Prizes from giveaways here, care packages for two of my cousins and a trade all shipped out!  Yay!

~My Diet Pepsi consumption is still at very low levels.  Some days it’s zero.  Some days it’s 1.  Not bad!

~The Super Bowl is tomorrow!  Bring on all those fun commercials and great performances!

~My skin is FINALLY starting to look better!

~I have decreased my Diet Pepsi intake by like 90% since the New Year and that makes me smile!  And it is also likely the reason my skin is looking better!

~Ice-Skating is on in Prime Time tonight!  I don’t know if I am more excited for the skating itself or the commentary from Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir!

~Gas prices are still super low!  It’s amazing to see it for less than $2/gallon and I still do a double take because it seems to good to be true!

~A friend of mine who works at the GAP informed me last night that Sale items are an additional 50% off in-store!  I do all my shopping about a year in advance for the boys.  It saves me a ton.
