Ok, well I guess I’ll join the bandwagon and share a few of my favorite things on this lovely Friday (ok, it’s not that lovely outside, but any Friday is lovely in my opinion…unless you work on weekends, then umm, well enjoy this post anyway!).
1. Costco Cash Card
We booked our Disney Cruise through Costco Travel and received our $120 Costco Cash Card in the mail about a week after we got back. Talk about good timing, as we were already planning a trip to Costco that evening! Every time I see a new travel brochure at Costco, I pick it up and scan through. I know we’re not going to book anything soon, but it sure is fun. We booked our 2011 cruise through Costco and got $200 onboard credit and a free upgrade. We are big fans of Costco and Costco Travel and I highly recommend you give their travel page a peek for deals.
2. Sweet Baby Rays Buffalo Wing Sauce
We already love Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce, so this was a no-brainer for me, the lover of buffalo wings.
3. Art by Trent
My heart melts. Daddy had a particularly stressful day home with our little toddler terror, and by the time I got home, he just had enough of it. So I gave Trent some markers and colored pencils (where oh where have all of our crayons gone?!?!) and a coloring book our good friend gave him and let him color Daddy a picture to make him feel better. It worked
Now that the weather is getting nicer, we take as many opportunities as possible to go to the park. Brett has even gone to a few new ones during the day just to try them out. Two negatives tho – 1) he’ll only play in the “baby” section for a few minutes before going to the big kid section. This isn’t totally a bad thing, as he is learning to try new things and be independent, but not good for us that has to run around making sure he goes in the direction he is supposed to. and 2) he never wants to leave. Ever. He will scream when I say “C’mon” or we pick him up and he’ll even run in the other direction. Loads of fun. Our trick has been to let him swing as the last thing we do, so when we pick him up out of the swing, we just start walking away from the park. If we were to go pick him up from him running around, he would immediately know what was up.
I had only ever had 1 pedicure in my life…which is shocking because I worked in a salon for almost 3 years and could have gotten them at a serious discount. I guess when I can just do something myself…I just do it and don’t even think about getting someone else to do it. My mother-in-law saw a Groupon for a nearby salon for a deluxe pedicure package a few weeks back, so she and my sister-in-law bought and me bought one and scheduled our appointments together. It was nice and I enjoyed it…I think I enjoyed it much more because the pedicurist spent a lot of time on the massage part and we all gabbed and laughed.
I’m so indecisive and spent the entire time thinking about what color to choose, and finally decided to be different than my usual pink/coral/purple and went for a blue. I’m still trying to get used to it…
I particularly liked this package they had for sale…
And here’s a “not-so-favorite”…me wearing two different shoes to work today. I didn’t even notice until I was at my desk. It was funny and good that no one noticed (or at least no one said anything) – good thing I didn’t have any meetings!
Happy Friday Friends.
