Today I’m Smiling Because…

~L is off school for the holiday weekend and is having a ball. He spent the night at his Nana and Papa’s last night and spent some more time working on his fort.

~I signed up for cable and got it installed myself (I didn’t want to pay for them to come out).  Granted it doesn’t work in every room, but I am working on that.

~This guy.  He might be a little naughty (maybe spirited is a better word) sometimes, but oh man, he’s a sweetie.  Constant hugs and smiles and that laugh.   Ahh!!!

So sweet

So sweet

~I sold B’s Bonnaroo tickets. That’s one more thing checked off my “To-Do” List!

~This list cracked me up.  I will admit I would like to write a note like that when WB is trying to fall asleep at night.  Or for those mornings he’s decided to sleep in.

~B is doing well in Korea and is out on the hunt for Oreo O’s today ;).  I love him!

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

~B made it to Korea safe and sound. And thanks to technology and free wifi we’ve all been able to FaceTime. The boys love it and I know B loves seeing them being all silly and happy.

Facetime!

Facetime!

~I have gotten a ton of things done for L’s school’s end of the year carnival this week. I have a bunch more to do this weekend, but I think I’ve got this thing under control. Well, so far.

~Celebrity Jeopardy was on this week!  Those are about the only times I can get questions right ;).

~The neighbors opened their pool.

~The Color Me Rad race photos are online and the boys look great!  Check out L running. He’s so photogenic!

~I don’t want to jinx it, but WB has been feeling way better and his allergies (?) aren’t keeping him up at night anymore!

~The Lilly breakables I bought from the FB Buy/Sell/Trade groups have all arrived in perfect condition!  I need to check on the mugs I shipped to the giveaway winner on here, but I am hoping they arrived to her in perfect condition too.  Fingers crossed.

~L’s journals from school are hysterical.  The one he wrote on Monday about his weekend ended with “Sunday was Mother’s Day.  I had no fun at all”.  LOL!  Stop it.  I was cracking up.  He’s the best.

~B is home! Not for long, but he is here now and we are all happy.

~My cousin and her kids got here last night and today is the color run. L is beyond excited about it and cannot wait for someone to dump a color bomb on his head.

~Dare I say it, but WB has been sleeping way better.

~The Summer 2015 Keep Collective line has launched and it’s AMAZING! I should have my new stuff soon and I’ll post it on Instagram when it comes.

~Unboxing boxes with Mike Tyson. If he had a YouTube channel of him unboxing toys or subscription boxes or whatever, I’d watch.

~My Boys. I was JUST asking the other day what I should be doing with all the baskets that come with GlobeIn and now I have my answer.  Turn them into hats! Totally WB’s idea.  Why didn’t I think of that??

Hats!

~The POPSUGAR CFDA box has shipped which means we’ll be getting some spoilers soon.

~My Lilly for Target pineapple bowl arrived in one-piece!  I couldn’t find it at any Targets near me so I was forced to pay a bit of a premium (not too too bad though) and I was so nervous it wouldn’t make it. But it did and it’s perfect.

~It was 90 yesterday.  90.  In Michigan.  In May.  Amazing.  I won’t even mention that we got storms later and that the temperature dropped like 20 degrees in an hour.  I’ll just say that the hot sun feel amazing!

~L’s birthday is Wednesday!  Eeek!  How is he already going to be 7??

~I pulled winners for all the giveaways that have recently ended! Here they are: Lilly for Target Mugs“Ann Marie Riley”, Birchbox Lovely Day – “Lanie Van der Horst” and April Little Lace Box – “Deanna Magoun”.  Congrats ladies!  You should have an e-mail in your inboxes from me!

~Today is both The Kentucky Derby and the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight.  That’s a huge day in sports right there.  As a side note, has anyone been to the Kentucky Derby?  How was it?

~Our final car payment on one of our cars was in April!  We totally thought it was going to be done in October (since we originally bought the car in October), but nope, April was the last month.  What a great surprise!

~While it’s not finished, the Lilly pillow project is still happening!!!!  The top is the actual Lilly for Target pillow.  The bottom is the one(s) we are making (well these and some bolster ones).

~L has been taking his time with his writing and it’s totally showing.  He dislikes handwriting so he used to hurry through it, but he’s really been working on slowing down lately.  Go L!!!!

~I got some fabulous news from a friend the other day so I am totally smiling for her right now.

~I finally got my computer and my phone updated. Still can’t figure out some of those passwords (like the blog one) until I get on my desktop, but everything is much speedier now.

~Bruce Jenner! Last night’s interview was very enlightening and I am glad he got to share his story. Hopefully the paparazzi lay off him now.

~I caught a glimpse of the Talent Show yesterday when I was at L’s school for PTO stuff and it was so fun to see all those kids up there performing! And even better to see the crazy cheers they all got from the other students in the audience.

~L got a great Progress Report yesterday!  I am amazed by all that he has learned this year.  And the mohawk he was running around the house with this week when B was cutting his hair made me smile too!

~The new Starbucks by my house has opened!  I kid you not they built that thing in like 3 weeks.  Amazing.

Such a fancy drive-thru!

~My boys are going to see Thomas the Train tomorrow!   WB is more excited about this than L, but I think L is secretly into it too.  CHOO-CHOO!

~The Lilly + Target returns are in full force and I have picked up some great stuff as a result.  I still have my eyes open for some Nosie Posey pillows, but I hope I can snag at least one!

~Of WB (who I should really just start calling W since he’s not a baby anymore). If you can hang out with him for 10 minutes, heck 5 minutes and he doesn’t make you smile, I’d be surprised.  This kid is a trip.

~In addition to tomorrow being WB’s 3rd birthday (as if that wasn’t exciting enough), the Lily Pulitzer for Target line launches!  I cannot wait!

~My Baby Foot order arrived and B’s should be coming soon, so we’ll be testing it soon.  I can’t wait.  I think B is less excited than I am, but he’s still game.
