Happy, happy Friday!! Hope you all have had a great week and ready for the weekend. We’ve just hit our first week living in the city and I don’t think we could be happier. I wake up everyday looking forward to new adventures and just spending time with Keely. I can’t wait for the weather to get nicer to that we can be outside a lot more. Keely & I went to our first My Gym in Chicago and she loved but than again, she loves My Gym. The new teacher actually moved her up a level so that’s pretty cool. After My Gym, we grabbed some lunch at a cute little cafe near our place and WOW was it good. Like I mentioned yesterday, I am ready for the weekend as we have a few things planned. I am also happy to announce that I have accepted two near part-time jobs. Both of them are majority work at home but one is a party planner position so I will most likely have to work a few parties or events (or at least get it started then stay for an hour or so but I love it so it doesn’t bother me). Well enough chit-chat, it’s Friday and time to link up to Heather @ Housewife Glamour for another addition of Friday Favorites…enjoy!!
My Favorites For Friday…
Our new complex has a nice playroom that we’ve been spending a lot of time in plus we might donate some toys to it as well.
Pandora was totally my friend on Thursday while getting ready…love it!!
Making these banana yogurt muffins on Sunday, thinking this dark ombre is what I’ll be getting in April and found a skirt just like this one at Target that I will be needing for the summer. Love!!
I’ve made myself a promise to keep out negativity & stress. Right now, I love life and will not let anyone take that love away from me. People can be so jealous of each other and talk badly behind their backs and it’s just so sad. I don’t think we were put on this earth to treat each other badly and I am working hard to treat others nicely and those that treat us badly…keep them out of your life because they don’t deserve you! <3 XOXO
It’s almost the weekend…can I get an AMEN!! I am actually pretty excited for the weekend and we have some fun things planned but before we begin the week, we must talk about “thoughts for Thursday”.
1. Will winter ever end?!?! Chicago has seen it’s fair share of cold & snow and I am so ready for at least a straight week of upper 40’s PLEASE!!
2. This wooden bead maze is the best toddler entertainment on the planet and why haven’t I invested in buying one yet?
The new playroom has it and Keely could’ve spend hours playing with this thing. I have a feeling the Easter Bunny might be getting it for Keely.
3. Could Target get any cuter spring clothes…I think not!!
4. Very happy that I received the part-time party planner job from one of our favorite bars. Can’t wait for my first party next week & event next Saturday.
5. I could eat the whole thing of Chocolate straws…anyone else feel me on this one? “Pirouettes, Pepperidge Farm!”
6. Should I give up something for Lent or should I do something nice everyday? I feel that volunteering once a week would be good for both Keely and I. Thoughts?
7. I wish you all a great Thursday!! See you tomorrow for some Friday Favorites!!
Quote of the Day
Can you believe that it’s the first week of March?!?! I feel like I am having Déjà Vu as far as writing that it’s the first week in March and I probably am since I most likely wrote it last year…LOL! So Daylight Savings is this Sunday which means we are getting closer and closer to summer weather or at least wishing for summer like weather in the Midwest. I am going to dominate this month with challenges as I need to get closer to bikini ready So here is what my challenges for the month will looks like in case anyone wants to join me!!
Who’s with me??
Happy (March) Monday!! Did you all have a great weekend? Ours was busy, busy with the move but once Sunday came, it was nice and relaxing. I made my first trip to our “new” target (only 5 minutes…could be dangerous) and let me tell you…I’M IN LOVE!! It’s probably the nicest Target I’ve been too in a while. I found some cute things for Keely for Easter but need to go back at a different time. I had a list to stick too. Anyways, so far we are totally loving city life. Keely is having so much fun and tonight we saw a little boy in the children’s play room which was super fun. We have a little complex Chocolate feast that we will be partaking in next Sunday and they have an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids on April 12th. I am just counting the days tills it’s nice out to go to the park and beach. Well I am linking up to Katie at Healthy Diva Eats with my “2” Marvelous In My Monday…
Keely is just too funny with her Sunglasses on!! After over 10 hours of moving, we met three lovely friends out for dinner & drinks. Thanks, Patty Poo is watching Keely!! <3
Friends rock!! <3
Hey Peeps!! Happy Friday to you all! Any fun plans this week?!?! As you know, it’s MOVING DAY!! Can I get a hells yay?!?! Even though it’s only going to be like 12 degrees outside, I am so ready to move and start waking up to the beautiful Lake Michigan everyday. As you can tell, I am linking up to Ms. Heather @ Housewife Glamour for another addition of Friday Favorites…what are you loving this week?
I have no words…<3
I have just about everything for this outfit but I LOVE the tee!!
Favorite Activity of the Week
I had an event on Tuesday at a bowling alley and Keely & Bob came with and Keely tried bowling for the first time and LOVED IT!! We will be going again very soon!

Love listening to Paramore these days!!
So, so true!!
Have a great weekend, Sweets!! Cheers! XOXO
It’s HUMP DAY!! Sorry for the MIA yesterday, I had a post all planned out in my head then once naptime came around it was ALL WORK and NO PLAY!! Anyways, I am hoping once we are all settled in the new place, I’ll get back into the swing of things. Now onto TODAY, it’s WIAW time, thanks to the wonderful Jenn for another awesome link-up. I love Wednesdays and seeing what everyone eats!! So Mr. Bob (the hubster) wanted to join in on the fun and he took pictures of his breakfast & dinner, no lunch…boo!! Enjoy…
Bob’s Breakfast – Egg Sandwich, Milk and Banana
My Breakfast – Scrambled Spinach Eggs, Gluten Free Toast with Almond Butter, Banana and Coffee
Such a YUMMY Bowl of Couscous, Black Beans, Corn and Peppers with a Green Smoothie
Chicken Quesadillas and Wine…very, very light dinner.
So I guess looking at what Bob-O ate for breakfast and dinner, it’s not bad at all. He’s gotten so much better with his choices. Your Turn: what meal could you have all day long? a few years ago, I’d probably say cereal but now I could live off of eggs and my gluten free toast with almond butter…YUM!
Quote of the Day
Happy Monday. Before we get going, let’s thank Katie @ Healthy Diva Eats for hosting another awesome MIMM. This weekend just flew by but that was totally cool with me because you know what…we are MOVING soon!! YAY!! I can’t believe the time has finally come and it will be bittersweet as this was our first house that we purchased together but here’s to a new chapter in our lives and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for our little family.
Anyways, did you all have a good weekend? I have to say there is nothing cuter than little girls and how they interact with each other. On Friday, I had my hair appointment and brought Keely with since Katie (she does my hair) had her girls home which meant hair appointment/playdate. Katie and I were both a little nervous with how Keely and Layne (both 2) would play together but after a 15 minute warm-up for them both they were best friends.
Keely was slightly obsessed with little Harper who is 6 months old. Keely loves babies and I know one day, she would be a great big sister…not yet but maybe in 5 years…LOL! Well enough chit-chat, let’s get down to the CUTE stuff…
Little friends in the making!!
Girls are so funny!!
Your turn: what was one thing you enjoyed about being a little girl (or boy)? Mine was being able to play “house” or barbies ALL DAY LONG!!
