Five on Friday {March 14, 2014}

Back from vacation - yes, yes before you start asking, I will recap our amazing trip next week (ok, kidding about your excitement, but not about the posts to come!) - and loving the fact that we came back to amazing weather. This weekend is going to be no exception. Besides the fact that I'm working through Sunday, you better believe yo selves that I'm going to get my booty outside to run.

Before I get into anything else, I have to tell you how much I'm loving this commercial. Have you seen it?

Loving everything about it. You gotta check it out.

Also, loving s'mores. So you know I love me some graham crackers. Which makes this ad all the more fantastic.

Cruz has gotten used to using glow sticks for every bath time, so much so that if we don't have any he kind of freaks. {face slap to forehead} Not sure why I do this stuff to myself, but in midst of a freak out the other night when I told him we didn't have any glow sticks left, I improvised.

Balloons in the bath. Who would've thought they were so fun, but this kiddo was loving them!

My preggo mask is back in full force since our trip, which means I have mean splotches of brown, extra-pigmented skin on my face - on the bridge of my nose, my cheekbones, my forehead, upper lip and chin. It sucks. I would take a pic, but it would scare you all. It's that bad.

So I'm hitting up a medspa on Monday morning. I definitely will get skin lightening creams, but they may want to do some chemical peels. I've never had a chemical peel - have you? All I picture is Samantha from SATC going to Carrie's book party with a cover over her face because it was bright red and peeling. Not sure that is making it more enticing, but we will see.

I've been recapping the trip my sister and I took to LA last June the past couple of weeks and it has brought back memories of all the fun we had when we were there, but my fave is yet to come. It's the one where I was on Kimmy K's steps of her house. Recognize this driveway anyone?

Here is a recap of our first day and our second if you haven't had a chance to check them out!

Obviously coming home from a vacation can be bittersweet, meaning I'm super bummed that I don't have a butler waiting on me hand and foot any longer and I'm not laying out in the gorgeous Mexico sun. =( But on the positive, I found out I'm taking a group of customers on a cruise to the Bahamas the second week of April. So I guess I can't be that upset. I mean if the job requires it, I suppose someone has to do it, right?

Have the best weekend!

  1. I love everything about that commercial. Hell to the yes.

    Duly noted. No fun things for the tubby. Or else.

    I am petrified of a chemical peel simply because of Sam.

    You already know I'm pumped for number four.

    And we need to train our kids to be our personal butler. We can make it a game.

  2. I love the balloon in the bathtub idea!!!
