FRIIIIDAYYYYY!  You guys, there is only one more Friday left in 2018!  So NUTS!  What’s on the agenda today?  Shopping? Wrapping?  I have finally completed my Christmas shopping.  Miracles do happen…HA!  Just patiently waiting for the final packages to arrive….with my fingers crossed.  I got up super early this morning.  Turned on the Christmas tree lights.  Made a cup of coffee.  And had a serious wrapping sesh.  The UPS delivery guy dropped of more packages at 6am…and they are officially wrapped and under the tree.  4 more sleeps till Christmas!

How great is it having a full weekend before the Holiday madness hits?  We have a couple more {christmas traditions} to mark off the list.  Then I foresee, lots of lounging and hanging out at home.  Which I’m so looking forward too.

ONE – Target Top // I walked into Target the other day….how many sentences have I started like that…lol!  So, I walked in.  Spotted this Who What Wear top out of the corner of my eye.  Straight up got out of the long ass customer service line (I was like 2 peeps from being next).  And grabbed the top!  In the meantime about 38 people got in line in front of me.  But, I got the top!  And that’s all that really matters.  It’s super cute guys.  Get one!

TWO – Mary Poppins Returns // Last night my Mom, Bay and I went to see the new Mary Poppins movie.  You guys, it’s so good.  Stick it on your list of things to do while your kids are on Winter break.  I was a little bummed they didn’t sing a Spoonful of Sugar though.  Now I need to get my hands on the original.  Bay doesn’t think she’s ever seen it.

IMG_6344.jpg

Alas, June rolls in!  #holycowhowdidthathappen Ha!

This weather just screams summertime.  I cant even express my excitement.  With only 5 more days of school left, we are ready to say the least!  We’re currently planning out our summer.  Weekend trips.  Tahoe stays.  Pool days.  Bucket List.  Love the idea of these giant summer calendars to keep all your plans in motion.

What’s on your family’s Summer to-do’s?  Do you have a fun vacation planned?

It’s Friday, so let’s chat about 5 things on my mind……..

 

ONE – Before I die…… //  Has anyone stopped by and written on the wall?  We’re driven by it time and time again, but never stopped.  This week I added it to our intentions for the week and we make it happen.   I love seeing our little town participate in such a cool art exhibit.  Put it on your weekend to-do’s.  Let your kids write what comes to mind.  It’s cute to see what they’re thinking.  Take your own chalk and find a space!

Originally created by artist Candy Chang on an abandoned wall in New Orleans, Before I Die is a global art project that invites community participation. This public wall has been produced more than 2,000 times in 70 countries, and presented in 35 languages. The participatory art exhibit invites passers-by to complete the sentence, “Before I die, I want to…” by writing on the wall with chalk to contribute a heartfelt wish, a goal, or an intention.

TWO – I did it Sign //  Hey Mama’s, I got yo ass covered for those last day of school pics next week.  Can you believe that one week from today….school’s out for the summer.  (now the song is stuck in my head)  Click on the link below and print!

THREE – Target + Museum Of Ice Cream Colab // Coming to Target’s kids department + freezer section!   Mark your calendar for this Sunday, June 3rd!  The collection will highlight Museum of Ice Cream’s playful, pastel-hued fun!  Think gummy bear graphic tees.  Then July 8th, seven ice cream flavors launch.  Nana Banana + Cherrylicious + Chocolate Crush + Churro Churro (OMG) + Vanillionaire  AND Museum of Ice Cream’s signature flavors: Pinata + Sprinkle Pool!  Just one more reason to love good ol Target!!!

{friday 5}

IMG_3632.JPG

Don’t you just love Fridays?  Dumb question.  Of course you LOVE Fridays!  Especially ones that don’t come with a jam-packed weekend.  What’s on your agenda?  I was hoping to get a hike in, but not sure the weather is going to allow it.  Maybe the Davis Arboretum Plant sale?  Meal prep.  Movies.  Long mornings in our PJ’s.  Ready!!

 

5 things on my mind…..

 

ONE – Holiday Cups // November 1st, Starbucks debuted the 2017 Holiday cup.  No big deal, just the day after Halloween.  Not going to lie, I almost think my coffee tastes better in the Holiday cup…Ha!  And I look festive AF with my red matching sweater, don’t you think?  Anyway, go get your cup of cheer and make shit happen.  5 o’clock is just around the corner!

My sweater above is now available online at Target.  And comes in a cream color too!  I’m obsessed with it.  The sweater is also included in the spend $40, get a $10 giftcard!!

TWO – Gratitude // Seems to be the theme of November.  And I’m totally into it.  I’ve already completed #1 + #2.  Promised Bay a Dutch Bros. after school, so does that mean I can cross off #3?  Make a Trader Joe’s weekly stem purchase on my lunch break #4.  #5 is going to be tricky.  WTF are my strengths?  And 3 of them.  Anyway, I think it’s a fun list.  Feel good shit.  Join me and try it out.

THREE –  Halloween // So many kids.  So much candy.

We start Halloween night every year at GG’s house.  We gather all the cousins we can for the annual Halloween costume picture.  GG had a smile on her face the entire time.  Can you believe she’s the creator of all this.  All these great grand kids.  And that’s not even all of them.

{starbucks unicorn frappuccino}

IMG_6952.JPG

Starbucks new Unicorn Frappuccino is the overnight Instagram sensation.  Clearly, we had to see what the buzz was all about.  I mean, it looks cool and all.  Butttt, how does it taste?

I placed my order for pick up as we were leaving the house this morning.  I didn’t tell Bay that I also ordered her something too.  I’m the lazy ass Mom that pulls up and sends my 10 year-old in the store to fetch my grande pike in a venti cup with a stopper.  I’m sure if you’re a regular at Starbucks on Ashley Ave, then you’ve seen my girl run in a few times!

She came running out…..

With the Unicorn Frapp in hand 🙂

{starbucks rewards}

Are you a coffee fanatic like myself?  Starbucks or Dutch?  I’m a loyal Starbucks girl.  The app is amazeballs.  I order my coffee then run in and out in a matter of minutes.  You can’t beat that for morning coffee shop lines.  They can be unreal.

I’m also a gold cardholder since 2008.  Told you I drink a shit ton of coffee.  I actually didn’t drink coffee, like at ALL.  Then in 2006 I had a baby and that shit changed real quick.  I realized mom’s NEED coffee.  It’s kind of a deal breaker.  No coffee No talk.  Once I get that warm cup of joe in my hands, I’m instantly a different person…lol.  True story.

{will you be my valentine?}

IMG_0184

Let’s be honest, do kids even pick out their classroom Valentines anymore?  I know Bailey doesn’t….lol.  I search Pinterest for a couple cute options and see what I can find at Target.  She’s ALWAYS on board with whatever I find.  This year I totally lucked out.  I headed to Target to grab a couple dinner ingredients and whala – my eye caught these cute eraser rings.  I grabbed two bags and called it good.  Hit Pinterest the next day with key word Valentine eraser rings and this adorable free printable popped up.

It was meant to be.

{lunchbox love – valentine edition}

By now you all know that I’m a Holiday whore.  It sounds so bad…lol.  Any excuse to get my Holiday on.  Bailey’s been inquiring about her Valentine Lunch…and when it’s going to happen.  I try to keep it a surprise.  That way, when she opens her lunch at school it’s extra fun 🙂  She loves a good surprise.

Speaking of surprise, check out the adorable Valentine Starbucks reusable cup Bailey surprised me with a couple of weeks ago.

 

I currently cant find them at any of my local stores, or I would link it for you.  They are $2 so next time you see one, grab it!!  Grab a handful of the cardboard sleeves too.  These cups get HOT!

Ok, now back to the lunchbox love…….

Here’s what I have up my sleeve:

I’ve linked everything you need to surprise your little one this Valentine’s Day! Seriously, who wouldn’t love opening their lunch box to a party?

Cheers to Friday!  I hope everyone has a nice relaxing weekend planned.  Whenever I say “we don’t have much planned” I sabotage it and overbook every minute of the 2-days home.  So, I will say – we have a somewhat relaxing weekend planned…lol.  I am 100% looking forward to everything that we have on the calendar thus far.

ONE – Starbucks sells beer + wine?  Where in the hell have I been?  This is unbelievable.  How can one shop carry my two favorite beverages?  So, I guess you tell your friends, hey lets meet at starbucks for wine?  That just sounds silly.  But, if you see me sitting in the corner alone double fisting a venti unsweetened black iced tea + a glass of wine, don’t be surprised.

Whoop Whoop!  Happy Friday!

This week flew by, mainly because we were so busy.  Next week I foresee a nice slow week.  Yesss!

So, it’s Friday and you know the drill.

5 things on my mind today:

ONE – Number one obviously had to be Blake Shelton + Gwen Stefani.  It’s all over the headlines.  Even the CMA awards made a couple funny jabs.  Sorry Miranda, but I’m totally diggin this!  There is “No Doubt” this is the new power couple.  What will we call them?  Glake? Gwake? Blwen?  Did you hear they wrote a country ballad together that is about telling a lover to leave the relationship if that is what they truly want?  Can’t wait for that one to be released!!
