// With each week that passes I see Carson growing from a little boy into a little man. It's breaking this mama's heart and I am finding myself wishing for summer just so I can see him more (someone please remind me of this mid-summer when I want to pull my hair out). Kindergarten is no joke, he is gone all day, and when he comes home he is so tired. Sometimes when I hear him talk, I am shocked to hear all the things he already knows (not in a bad way, but in a "oh my goodness, he's so smart kinda of way"). He already has girlfriends, yes that's right, girlfriends as in plural. He has also already been, in his words, "dumped"....are you kidding me!?!? Ahh, I am so not ready for the girlfriends stage. I know this is only pretend puppy love right now, but I feel like it's a glimpse of what's to come. All this to say, I make sure every morning before school when he is still sound asleep, I quietly slip into his bed, pull him close to me, and wrap my arms around him and whisper in is ear how much I love him and how very proud I am of him. He usually rolls over with his semi-stinky morning breath (it's not grown man stinky quite yet) and his response is, "I love you too mom, but do I still have time to play my DS?". Haha....I always respond with, "Yes buddy, you still have time, but can you snuggle with mama just a little longer?". He always gives me his little half smile and nods his head. It's my favorite time, it's our time, and I am going to treasure it for as long as he will let me.
// I feel like I am slowly becoming the crazy flower lady. I guess it could be worse, I could be the crazy cat lady;) Oh hell, I hope I didn't just offend any cat lovers! I am not sure what it is about fresh flowers, but they make me insanely happy, which is so funny because when I was younger I remember how much my mom loved them and I always thought that was so silly and a complete waste. These days, the older I get, the more I love them. They really just seem to brighten up a room like nothing else. I usually pick mine up on Tuesdays at Harris Teeter because thats's the day they get their delivery (kinda sad I know that right). The prices aren't bad either, three bunches for $15.00, plus they have the most gorgeous selection! In the picture below I hit the jackpot...these bad boys were 75% off and I couldn't resist grabbing a few (or maybe 45:). Do you girls love fresh flowers as much as I do or could you care less and think they are a waste?
// These adorable Sperry Top-Sider shoes are marked 40% off!! I have NEVER seen these marked that low! I knew they would be perfect for Easter and all summer long so I grabbed Carson a pair yesterday. Plus, I am loving the fact that they slip on and do not tie....so much easier for him to slip on and off.
Speaking of Easter, I picked up this adorable bloomer set for Taylor. Yes, my tiny little bean can still wear 18-24 months in certain brands. That being said, Mini Boden does run extremely large. This set is also available in more sizes here.
// I am pretty much in shock over how good the new arrivals are at Express! I am in love with this pineapple print blouse. You must check out this flamingo one as well (just ignore the terrible skirt they paired it with).
// I want to
// Technically this is 'Six on Friday', but ecards are the best ever. Plus, who couldn't use a good Friday laugh!
