Friday Favorites

So this kid....

Last night when he was taking a bath, it seemed like just a normal night, letting him play while I sit on the bathroom floor next to the tub, kind of checking emails and the rest of the time having C create me really fun bath water 'drinks'. The next thing I know he stands up in all his naked glory and goes all Scarface on me and says,

"Mama, say hello to my little dinger."

Ummm. What?

Me:  "Cruz, what did you say?"

Him:  "I saaaaid, say hello to my little dinger."


And I instantly knew where that came from. There is another guy in the house who is a HUGE Scarface fan and quotes that line all the time. The actual line, though, not the way Cruz had chosen to use it.

Which made me think about this that I saw on Facebook earlier this week...


I've definitely already had a few of these moments already and know the others are just around the corner. And the "no pants" ones are so Cruz. The kid loves to run around with NO PANTS.  Always no pants.


Remember when I was looking at gym shoes (here)? I found a great pair of neon yellow ones, but also picked out these Asics Gel-Fit Sana Trainers and they are my new favorite. They are great at the gym or running around town in workout wear. And I'm not a person who generally wears gym shoes unless I'm at the gym. I even wore them when I met Chris & Whitney. =)

Speaking of shoes, Katie went and posted about these Steven Madden fringe ones and I instantly fell in love. Not so sure the mister is going to agree that I need another pair of shoes, but seriously how gorgeous are they? I can't stop thinking about them.

I saw these eggs on Pinterest the other day and now I cannot wait for Cruz and I to make them for Easter.  Aren't they just the cutest? He loves playing with the emoticons on my phone, so I think he will get a kick out of these.

With that, I will be spending the next week in Vegas. Of course it's work but seriously how great will it be getting out of this terribly cold weather? Although as it normally works, as soon as I'm leaving town, the weather is supposed to get pretty nice around here.  And the worst part, always the worst part, is leaving my little man for an entire week.  However, he will be spending the week with my parents and I think he's just excited for me to get out of town so he can get to the farm. He LOVES the farm.

As I'm finishing this post, Cruz runs out of his room as daddy is putting him to bed and says, "mommy, daddy and I are stinkin' up the house. We are fartin' in there. Don't come in my room!" And then runs back into his room and slams the door, while laughing hysterically.

I'm surrounded by stinky, gross boys...

Enjoy the weekend!

Linking up with Karli, Amanda and Natasha.


  1. OMG hahaha! I seriously don't know what I would say to that! Of course just reading it I laughed hysterically but if Cruz actually said that to me I don't know how I'd react! I think probably just like you! I almost posted those shoes on my Friday Five today too! They are SO pretty. I really think I need them but after buying a plane ticket and a large purchase from J.Crew yesterday I think I'm going to have to wait on them :( Have fun in Vegas! At least you'll have fresh air :)
