Friday’s Five

1. Our last Easter pic as a family of 4.

2. After the Easter festivities I cut 8 inches off of my sister’s hair. For those of you that don’t know, before this whole stay at home mom/wife job I did have an actual “real job” doing hair. I still do it on the side and I’m kind of obsessed with my sis’s haircut:

We’re practically twins now, right? A much younger, cuter me! ha! 🙂

3. I’m still raving over the Chicken and Dumplings I made on Wednesday night from Mix and Match Mama ( I wrote about them here: ) I’ve had them for every meal since. Don’t judge me, I’m pregnant and the husband is on a business trip so it was a fend for yourself night anyway. <—– you totally bought those excuses of why I’ve had chicken and dumplings for 4 meals in a row, didn’t ya?

4. Speaking of the hubster being away on business…in our house that means I get to play the good guy for once. See… I’m usually the whistle blower, schedule maker, rule follower, yeller in this house. Don’t get me wrong Will is definitely the disciplinarian, but for some reason he only has to say it once and calmy and they respond. Typical. So, since Mr. Nice Guy was out of town I treated the boys to  a later bed time, popcorn, cookies and juice boxes IN their bedroom. WHAT?? Who am I?? They loved it and I loved it. Win-Win.

5. You mean its been raining for a month and we are going to have a WHOLE WEEKEND in the 70’s. YIPPPEEEEE!!! I am looking forward to this for so many reasons.. baseball and soccer while wearing sunglasses and not a rain jacket, beginning to get our back patio and yard “spring/summer ready”, staying outside until the sun goes down and we HAVE to go in… I could keep going …
