Happy Friday! I am looking forward to a fun weekend with a break in the middle for a date night! Yay! Here are my five on Friday.
ONE- A local restaurant, Kickback Jacks, hosts a character night on a few Tuesdays a month. Well, this week, they were having the Trolls come between 6-8PM. Princess Poppy and Branch to be exact. My girls love Trolls, especially Aurora, so I decided to plan to go out to dinner that night to see them. Hailey has basketball practice until 6:30 on Tuesdays so I thought it would workout well. We made our Trolls summer clothes work for the winter and the girls were both so excited to go.
Anthony was coaching practice that day, so at 6PM, I decided to take Aurora to the restaurant early to try and get a table. It was packed! We couldn’t even find a parking spot and had to park at a nearby gas station. We went in and the wait was too long (over an hour), with three pages of names, so we decided to sneak in and try to see them really quick, before finding a new place to eat.
Aurora was very excited to see Poppy, even though she looks scared.
She was actually scared of Branch and wouldn’t get down to take a picture! I felt bad and tried to take a selfie, ha!
TWO- I have heard about Elderberry Syrup for a few years now. Some of my friends rave about it and how it helps support your immune system and improves cold and flu symptoms. There is a woman who is known as the “Elderberry Syrup Lady” who just started selling it at our local farmers market. I picked some up to try and help prevent this nasty flu from getting to our family.
The girls both like the taste, so that’s a plus!
I have also been giving the girls these vitamins I ordered off amazon.
Fingers crossed these help us steer clear from all the sickness!
THREE- During our long break from school due to the snow, the girls and I ventured out to Target one day. In clear snowstorm fashion, we picked out new swim gear for the summer! I found similar cover-ups and sunglasses for the girls and they are so excited to wear them!
FOUR- I am currently reading two books. The first I am reading with my women’s lifegroup and it’s called The Best Yes. In this book, the author, Lysa TerKeurst, is learning that there is a big difference between saying yes to everyone and saying yes to God. It is really relatable and especially good for small group discussion.
The second book I am reading is called Say You’re Sorry, by Melinda Leigh. I am not that far on this one, but it is kind of a murder mystery. It’s one of those that you don’t want to put down because you want to know what happens!
FIVE- If you missed my post from earlier this week, I cleaned out our pantry on the girls last snow day. That has given me a cleaning/organizing itch that just won’t go away. With some of the free time I found this week, I cleaned out the drawers in my bathroom, I organized some things in Hailey’s room and I cleaned out the drawer below.
This drawer is one of two “miscellaneous” drawers we have in the kitchen and it was BAD! It had about 15 candles, 40 koozies, 50 expired coupons and receipts from house projects dated back to 2014. Like I said, it was BAD! So I threw out a lot and moved some things to new locations and now I am a lot happier when going into this drawer!
That’s it for me! I hope you all have a great weekend!
