Happy Friday Darlings!
To be completely honest, I don't think that I am a Friday person... Allow me to explain, before y'all start saying "well, what the h-e-double hockey sticks!" My hubby works in the casino business, which means that it is open almost 24/7, and the shifts are non-traditional. Basically, he works four 10 hour shifts, Wednesday through Saturday, with Sunday through Tuesday off. And then I work Saturday through Monday, which means that Monday is my "Friday" and the first actual day I get to spend time with him, since I only work a couple of hours on Monday. So, technically speaking, my week kinda begins on Tuesday... Weird.
Anyways, I have been linking up with Lauren for awhile now, and it actually helps me look at all the good things that went on during my week. You see, I'm a full-time stay at home Mom of a three year old lil boy, whom I refer to as Lil Man on here, and I also work part-time (which I explained above). That being said, if you have children, I shouldn't need to further explain. But if you don't, then imagine your house. Now, put your house into a blender and start it up. Can you imagine that mess? Yep, that's what my house looks like on the daily. I'm going to throw this out there, raising a child is hard, but so very worth it. For each and every single time that he doesn't listen and pisses me off, at the end of the day there is a cuddle and an "I love you, Mommy." That, in a nutshell folks, is the crazy blissfulness of being a parent.
Yeah, I just unloaded a lot on you guys. Sorry, not sorry. BUT I think you deserve to see what you came here for.... the top highs/favorite moments/the culmination of my awesomeness of the week.
First, I am going to start with a fun song, which kinda describes what this link up means to me :) Ok, maybe not the whole song, but the repeatedly said "feel good".
And my week...
one... We took Lil Man to go get his hair cut on Tuesday, and afterwards went to this awesome pretzel place. The pretzels were amazing, and definitely worth the money. No, I didn't take any pictures of Lil Man getting his haircut, because a) it was his like 4th haircut and b) he kept moving the whole time, so if I would have taken some, they would have been blurry.
two... While at a weekly shopping trip to Target, I picked up two new scarves and two packs of cute little Valentine's Day cards. Oh, did I mention that the scarves were under $10 together? Score!
three... Also on that shopping trip, I picked up the remaining items I needed to buy for my Cara Box and Valentine's Day Swap box partners. I will be sending them out on Monday, and I can't wait for them to receive, open, and share with the world what they got.
four... I decided to splurge on myself this week, and pick up the Olay ProX, some sensitive face towlettes, and Essie's apricot cuticle oil. I tried the ProX, and immediately fell in love with it. My face feels so clean! And the cuticle oil... amazing! This horrible January that we have been having has been the worst on my hands, and the cuticle oil makes my nails feel 10x better.
five... I just recently put in my THIRD order at Oakleigh Rose, and I can't wait till my package arrives... And guess what! I approached the owners of Oakleigh Rose about doing a giveaway, and after some e-mails, I will be doing my first SOLO giveaway, which will go live next week. Yay! Go Me!!!
Yep, that was my week! Not bad, eh? I didn't think so either, so that why I'm linking up with: Lauren for H45F, Jennie for Friday Favorites, Whitney for #backthatazzup, and Darci, April, Christina, & Natasha for 5 on Friday.
How was your week? Do anything fun?
