Happy Fri-Yay friends. Hands in the air if you are excited for a 3 day weekend?! We are actually kicking off a 4 day weekend around here since it is our last Friday with no school activities. Our schedule goes into full swing next though. We were lucky to have a full month to ease into getting used to our homeschool routine but next week we add in everything else. Home group, Awana, Mom Life (MOPS), and co-op. It is bound to be a BUSY and crazy week. So let’s get back to that 4 day weekend and worry about the rest over a cup of coffee on Tuesday morning.
Here are this weeks Friday picks!
Marissa recently had to have a tooth pulled #allthemommyfeelings. If you ask me the technical reasons why, I can’t really explain. What I do know is the kid has a very crowded mouth and we are sure to end up paying for braces eventually. Upon the dentists preference I stayed in the waiting room with Emily and waited what was probably the longest 40 minutest ever. Finally Marissa came bouncing out completely giddy with excitement. She thought getting her tooth pulled was just the best thing ever. I know, she’s weird.
She loved it so much that she decided that she didn’t want the tooth fairy to taker her tooth and she is keeping it. Did I mention that all of this happened ON our anniversary. So #9 will also be known as the day Marissa’s tooth came out.
Fall is just around the corner and I can’t help but get the itch for some new clothes. Reality says Marissa will be the one who ends up with some new things to wear. I mean I guess she does kind of need clothes that actually fit. But I can hope I get to pick up a few thing for myself too, right?
Here is what t I have my eyes on.
What are you hoping to pick up for fall?
New hair cuts
Marissa and I both got new haircuts recently. Confession: sometimes I go 18 months without a hair cut and oh my goodness does it show when I do.
I added a lot of layering and trimmed of my dead ends.
Marissa shocked me by choosing to keep her length. The past several haircuts she has gone with a short bob, but she didn’t want to this time. We added some layers and trimmed hers up too. I wonder how long this longer hair thing will last with her.
A couple of weeks ago at the drag strip I made a bathroom run with the girls. The bathrooms were very clean but pretty bare bones. There was nowhere to set my camera and Emily still insists on using the stall with me (which is probably for the best really). I ended up watching her, holding my camera, and trying to go to the bathroom simultaneously. I thought everything was going to work out when I heard a plop. At first I thought “What was that?!” quickly to be followed by a “NNNNOOOOO!!!!” I have never shoved my hand into a toilet so quickly friends. I have also never been happier for soap and ALL the hand sanitizer in the world.
Long story short, I ended up with a new phone and I kind of love it. My old Galaxy S3 was more outdated than I ever realized and this new phone is so cool. Downfall, it’s kind of a phablet. Phone + Tablet = Phablet, aka really big. But I don’t care. It does everything and more that I hoped it would.
So if you see me posting A LOT more selfies and snaps now, you know why.
