Friday Night Leftovers - questions for you

  • Cody was home for most of the week this week, and you would "think" I would get a lot accomplished, especially all the cleaning I want to get done, but nope.  
  • I got a trim, but really wanted a highlight and an eyebrow wax, but due to Cody's work losing paperwork he got called in right after the trim was finished.   
  • I really want to buy my kids this.  Or there is even this one.  We can't exactly have a playground with all the future moves we may have.  I also don't want to buy anything that won't be played with frequently.  Thoughts?  
  • We went out to a steak house this week with the kids and I think next time I'll buy them an appetizer only as the three of them ate nearly a bucket of peanuts between the three of them.  
  • I need to get Addy t-ball shoes, but don't want to spend $30 for one season of use.  I've been visiting resale shops all weeks crossing my fingers, but have not been successful.  Sigh.
  • I purchased Addy's prek teachers each a Barnes and Noble gift card and I am trying to decide if I want to get them one more personal item, but also don't want to get them something that will simply be a dust collector.  Are the gift cards enough?   
  • Kinsley got her ears pierced today after she asked all week.  She was allowed to pick out a toy afterwards and she chose......a hula hoop.  Silly girl.  
  • Addy does NOT want to get her ears pierced, nor will I make her. 
  • It's going to be a rainy, dreary weekend, so I think my plans will involve the cleaning I put off all week.  
Go visit Danifred, our host, and if you have any tips for Disney send them her way.  


  1. Hmmm...the teeter totters look awesome but they may lose interest really quickly on it. I'm really not sure though because it is something my kids play with for about 15 seconds at the park and then move on to the swings and slide.

    Gift cards are more than enough. So sweet!

  2. I'm not sure they would be worth the investment long-term.

    As far as gift cards for the teachers, I think that is a great gift. If you feel like you need to give them an actual "thing" too though there are some cute ideas that wouldn't cost a ton on Pinterest. Or maybe a plant they can put in their yard?

    Thanks for commenting on my post about twins and toddler. I felt my haunches go up when you said that you didn't have any help until you went back to work -- and then I remembered I never took off work. ;)

  3. I like the helicopter- will they stay engaged with it?

    I definitely think gift cards are enough. Maybe a drawing as well?
