Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers

Fab 5 Friday...and ME!

I could sum up most of the week in five fabulous words, “The Weather Has Been Great!” but then I’d miss elaborating on the other fabulous highlights…

1) We had fantastic weather Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. No, that’s not the entire week, but I will certainly take those three days of sunshine and temperatures plenty nice for our full +3-mile hikes through the neighborhood. Fresh air does a body – and a mind! – some kinda good!

2) Baby B has started saying, “You crack me up!” It’s not always in context, but it cracks me up just the same!

3) The girls have been paying compliments to the chef at the dinner table, which absolutely melts my heart. They’ll say, “Good oatmeal!” or “Carrots good!” They’ll even ask, “How Mommy’s lunch?

4) The girls accompanied me for a haircut on Monday (as did Daddy…I still need an extra set of hands in that situation!). Usually I get my hair trimmed; then Baby A sits in my lap for her trim; and finally Baby B takes her turn. Hubby happened to ask Baby B – who is usually far more tentative than her sister – if she wanted to go first. She said she did, and her little chin didn’t even quiver once! She was such a big girl, and I couldn’t have been more proud!

5) Both girls do this, but Baby A is particularly funny when she “affirms” something she’s said. “[Baby A] no have on bunny shirt today, noooooooo.” She is just so emphatic, it’s too cute.

And what did I do for ME this week?

I had a fabulous week myself, with a couple of slightly-belated birthday celebrations. On Friday afternoon I had a massageahhh…heaven!

And Friday night, after the girlies were in bed, I met three girlfriends for a late dinner at our favorite Mexican dive. Between the four of us we probably ate four baskets of chips, with all the accoutrements, and we laughed until our faces hurt. Good stuff.

I'm envious that you have the energy to meet up with friends late in the evening! I've made dinner plans 3 times now with a group of friends and I've bowed out at the last minute each time. I'm just too tired by the time the kiddos are in bed. I just wanna get into my cozy jammies and plop myself down in front of the tv and zone out!!!

Sounds lovely and I'm more than a little envious of your gorgeous weather!

You went out after bedtime!? I love it, and am a bit jealous! I'm going out after bedtime too-to let my parent's dog out while they're gone for a weekend get away! What is wrong with this picture???

Have a great weekend!

What a fabulous week! I know what you mean about nice weather, it just makes everything better.

A massage AND dinner with the girls in one week? You lucky girl.
Thanks for linking up!

I love when the Crazies ask about food or compliment the chef...too cute!

I am so doing a massage THIS week....and I love that you had 4 baskets of chips. Once, I was waiting on someone at a Mexican restaurant. I ate an entire basket and had them replace it (and the salsa) friend was none the wiser ;)

Good stuff! I love it when Tiny throws out compliments at meal times. She'll say things like, "Dis is some good meat!" or "I love this meal! It my favorite!" And she's so sincere. It's so cute.

Both the massage and night out with your friends sound fantastic. I'm looking forward to spending a few days with some college friends next weekend. I can't remember the last time we were all together. I hope we have as much fun as you did!
