5 On Friday

1. I'm on such a great MOPS team this year! 
Wednesday night we tried doing a dinner for just the ladies at my table. Only 3 of us could make it.

(And didn't the hostess do an awesome job getting that wonderful blur effect? hehe)

We had a leadership meeting today and wore pajamas! We also brought new pajamas to donate to a local organization that takes in battered women and children.

And we filled almost 1000 Easter eggs for our MOPS hunt!

2. This little tot is such a cute accomplice during the week!

I was trying to get a good picture before we left for my MOPS meeting this morning. She looks so pretty in pink. Then when we got home, she put my boots on and said "Daddy take picture?"

I got this video of her before heading home. She's trying to put her seatbelt on by herself now!

3. Rylie got some Summer clothes last week that I'm excited for her to wear soon!

She literally had ZERO shorts that fit and 1 swimsuit (bought on clearance from last year that I havent even tried on her). I only got Remy more pj's and a swimsuit to match Rylie's. Rylie was so precious when I set it all out to show her everything she has for Summer, she said "I cant believe I'm so lucky." Love her.

4. These sweet sisters are just the cutest. 
Remy started crying of the thunder we had tonight. When I opened her door, she said "thunder!" I sat with her and she said "Rylie upstairs?" I said she was in her room. Remy said "Rylie scared." I asked if she wanted to go to Rylie's room to check on her or have her come in here and she said she wanted Rylie. I went to Rylie's room to get her and found Rylie hiding (practically trembling) under the covers scared of the thunder too! They both got to lay in Remy's bed while the storm passed. They were being so cute and sweet and having a grand time, begging for a slumber party in Remy's room.

They were both so sad when it was time for Rylie to go back to her own room and both of them to go to sleep.

5. My shows that help me wind down at the end of the day.

LOVE "The Little Couple" on TLC. They are the cutest family-so sweet and funny!

"Kim of Queens" on Lifetime is hilarious! 

"Pretty Little Liars" on ABC Family just ended season 4 on another cliffhanger! Cant wait until June for it to return!

And "The Good Wife." Goodness. Still can't accept the big shocker that aired on Sunday.

Happy weekend!!

Rylie's "Days of the Week" Dance

Yes, Rylie has known her days of the week for years. Last week she was just singing it for fun and wanted to teach it to Remy. She kept doing a cute little dance to the song, so I wanted to capture it on video!!

Remy and the Carwash

Remember how much Rylie loved the carwash when she was little??

It was like a treat for her to get to go through one!

This is how Remy thinks of the carwash.....

Pure torture and punishment to the fullest! Poor baby!

Spring has sprung and misc...

Last Thursday Remy asked for oatmeal instead her usual waffle for breakfast. She got so tickled I made it for her!

When I sent her to school that day she had a tiny braid on the side (that took awhile to do because she wouldn't be still). When I picked her up later, her teacher had done a full french braid and said she sat real still for her! Stinker. But look how cute she looked!!

Friday, after MOPS I had 2 stops to make before going home for lunch. In that time, Remy kicked off her shoes, pulled off her socks, ripped her pigtails and bows out, and was throwing a fit. Amazing what a mess she is in such a short commute. Really wish I'd taken pictures of her before we left that morning. She was busting out her Spring wardrobe and looked adorable.

Sunday morning Rylie woke up with a fever so I took her to the minute clinic. She has scarlet fever again! Thankfully we caught it earlier this time and got medicine right away. She's been acting like herself except for the fever that lingered.

Monday morning we all stayed home from school and gymnastics. This pollens about to do us in! PLEASE bring us some rain! Remy and I were playing in the living room and she took her new little lion into the kitchen and put him down for a "nap." She put herself down to. Only lasted 1 min, but how cute was that?!

I managed to get my Spring decor up this past weekend!

Finished my first deco wreath I made from scratch (as in not just adding mesh to a Christmas one). I could nit-pic it all day so I just gave up and put it on the door. lol It is what it is!

Our entry table

Little Easter tree and box on living room end table


Starburst jelly beans and bunnies on kitchen counter

I really dislike when Easter is so late! The girls dresses arrived weeks ago and I'm done shopping for their baskets and we made Resurrection Eggs at MOPS Friday. I'm ready to get the show on the road!

School Carnival and Surprise 40th

Rylie's elementary school had their annual carnival Saturday. We had to run errands first and she was ready to go with 2 snuggle friends and her leappad (man we get a lotta use outta that!)

We had lunch after errands at BJ's

Remy was at Mimi's house so it was just big-girl lunch.

Then we went straight to the carnival. She still loves the H-E-Buddy! They had a table with stuffed animals you can buy with tickets. Rylie and I found a little lion for Remy (since she loves The Lion King so much) and a Tin Man for herself!

We saw a lot of her little buddies and girl scouts there

They had tons of booths, silent auction baskets parents donated things towards

Rylie mostly wanted to do the bungee jumping and had a big smile the whole time

Apparently Marty McFly was walking around somewhere too

We did a few carnival games as well

And Rylie was dying to show us her skills on the playground!

That night I went to a friend's surprise 40th birthday party

Celine (in the blue) entering! So glad the surprise wasnt spoiled!

She was saying thanks (between tears) to everyone for coming

The restaurant crew came in singing

And made her wear a sombrero (please dont kill me Celine for posting this!)

A few neighbor friends with the birthday girl!

The whole crew! So glad she had a great birthday dinner. She deserves it. She's such a nice, sweet, genuine lady that I'm lucky to call a friend! Happy Birthday Celine!
