We have one heck of a celebratory weekend ahead! Today is Matt’s birthday and Monday is Thomas’ birthday!
one. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MATT! I LOVE YOU!
two. My sister got promoted at work! To celebrate I sent a Piñatagram to her office. How fun is that colorful piñata!? And it is filled with…wait for it…CANDY! I just discovered pinatagrams and think they are the coolest surprise ever to receive in the mail. The piñata arrives outside of a box with a custom message and is the happiest little gift.
three. I confess I have a bit of an obsession with delicious smelling hand soap. I usually stock up on soaps from Bath & Body Works when they run ridiculous sales. Anyway, Matt could care less what our soaps smell like so I thought it was worth mentioned to you all that he recently declared he has an all time favorite hand soap scent – Sea Salt Citrus. Normally I don’t go as far as fruity or citrusy soaps but this one, oh man, it really is THE best scent of ALL TIME. And for Matt to notice, that says a lot! It’s on sale at B&BW for $3.25 right now but if you miss the boat or want this soap within the next two days you can find it here too.
four. One of my favorite things to share on the blog is new products! I recently received a coupon to try out Johnsonville’s new chicken kabobs. I actually had no idea that Johnsonville made more than sausage so I was interested to see what their new chicken kabobs were all about. The flavorful line includes four varieties including lemon and herb, teriyaki, sweet BBQ and sweet chili lime. I picked up the lemon and herb flavor for our 4th of July grill out! The convenience of purchasing marinaded kabobs just a few hours before our party was so nice! We threw them on the grill with some hotdogs and everyone was really impressed with how tasty they were! I am definitely going to try out the other flavors next!
|“I naughty” – Caroline Grace (during a conversation about her recent bed time bad habit)|
five. HELP! We have been going through a new ummm “phase” with Caroline recently that I am desperate for some advice on. On a good night we get Caroline to bed around 7:30 pm’ish. Most nights she will stay up for almost two hours singing to her dolls, playing with her stuffed animals, asking for water, screaming “I looooooove yoooouuu” and so on. All that is fine and we just ignore her until she falls asleep, usually around 9 pm. However, things have taken a turn for the worst the past few weeks. Once Caroline has run out of things to do in her crib she’s been stripping herself out of her pajamas and removing her diaper. She thinks it’s hilarious until she needs to potty and pees in her crib. Then she cries and screams for us until we go in, strip her bed, redress her and tuck her back in. Talking to her about it in a calm (or not so calm) voice doesn’t phase her, zipping her up backwards in onesie jammies didn’t work and I don’t think she’d care enough about a reward system by the next morning. Has anyone else gone through this and have any tricks or advice? We are not above creative bribery! HELP!
