one of those days

it has just been one of those days & the day just started. I am glad it is Friday & that is an under statement!
I stayed up way too late last night playing nba jam with the hubby. Yes, nba jam. That this morning I actually took a nap on the bus & slept through my stop. I was woken up by the bus driving yelling 'last stop' & laughing at me! I had to stop & get a coffee to try to wake up. Coffee & an empty stomach just doesn't mix well! I got to work & was talking to a co-worker, when she busted out laughing. She then asked me if I knew my sweater was inside out. haha, Yeah that is just how I like wearing my clothes. It was just a cardigan, but still!
Hopefully this day will get better.

It was like Christmas this week with the mail.....

my Birchbox for April. I am loving the J.R. Watkins Hand & Cuticle Salve. It is amazing!

earring kits from Pick Your Plum. I absolutely love this website. They are kind of like a daily deal site where they post stuff for crafting, clothing, baking supplies, home decor and other fabulous finds.
I can not wait to come up with something cute for some these babies...I am thinking some cheery spring spray paint color!

they always throw in a laffy taffy my envelopes!

I also got these from them too. I am going to cover them with chalkboard paint. I have some uses for the larger ones, like first day of school sayings for Sebastien. Who, by the way is starting Kindergarten this year. Scary!

I tried e.l.f . I have heard some great stuff about their products & finally had to try them. A few weeks ago they were offering free shipping, which is a whopping $6.95. So I loaded up my cart with these goodies. I was so excited when they came in the mail!

So far my faves are their nail polish. The one on the left is Lilac & I love it! One coat & it was all done. All I have to do today is look at my fingers & toes to cheer up on this rainy day.

Everyone else at the house were not as excited about my little surprises in the mail this week. If they can't eat it or play with it they could care less.

here is a little Sebastienism in picture form:

Excuse me as I curl up under my desk & take a nap.

things a four year should not be saying

it has happened, that dreaded realization that your children suspect that you are doing more behind that closed bedroom door then talking or trying to find socks.
Here is a Sebastienism for ya....
Steven & I were watching a movie the other night. We sent Sebastien upstairs to watch a movie in the tv room since the movie we were watching was not very kid appropriate.
After a while Sebastien comes down for whatever (he likes to spy on us) & of course he comes barreling through the door right at a scene where Daniel Craig is getting it on (we had rented the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), if you know what I mean. We paused it as quick as we could & Sebastien runs into the bathroom. He does his business, comes out & stops at the couch. He turns to us & says
"Oh so that is what you guys do in your bedroom when you tell us to watch something on Netflix"
Whaaaaa? Let me tell you my mouth hit the floor; I was totally astounded, disgusted and trying so hard not to laugh at the same time. Now for the record, the few seconds he saw was just the beginning of the scene & all he saw was some kissing if even that so this was an innocent proclamation, but still it freaked me out.

I want C-A-N-D-Y

I had a glorious long weekend...and I loved every minute of it. Even extra loud children did not phase me.
I got a lovely girl night with a friend, even though my kids ran rampant through her house.  It was much needed & I can not wait to do it again.
We had a fish fry on Friday night to fry up the fish Steven caught that day.
Of course I was a loser & did not take any pictures.
Saturday Steven and I got up early to make his parents a Bart Simpson cake for their birthdays, yup that is how we roll!
I think it turned out good. We had a blast frosting this baby. Our fingers were yellow & red by the time we were done.

The boys coloring eggs....missing is Sawyer, he was fast asleep. I don't think he would have cared much at this age. He would have just tried to drink the colored water.
Sunday, the kids woke up to a line of bunny poop (aka jelly beans) leading them to their baskets. Also it took them 30 minutes to find 11 eggs in our living room. Either they are getting bad at this game or we are just getting better at hiding! Sawyer was pretty excited about his candy...which this year he was able to eat. We only had Jash until 11am so we had to pack a whole bunch of stuff in a little time. (like eating all the candy & watching Chipwrecked)
 We had a great Easter egg hunt with some family. Luckily there were no Charlee eggs found!

our nephew Riley wrap it all up here is some Sebastienism ........
10 minutes before bedtime, Sunday night, Sebastien asked for some candy. When told that it is almost bedtime & it is too late for candy. He responds with,
Him: Well, it's still Easter right?
Me: Yes it is
Him: And we get candy on Easter right?
Me: I just look at him, you know that "mommy look"
Him: Do you want to ruin my Easter by not letting me eat my candy?
Mind you, everyone & I mean everyone had been eating candy all day. Breakfast - Candy, Lunch - Candy, & Dinner - yup, you guessed it Candy!
Me: I just laughed....I guess I totally ruined his Easter.
Really? This boy is 4, people.
