Five on Friday!

I don't know about you, but this was the LONGEST week ever for me!!

SOOO happy it's FRIDAY!

1. What would a Five on Friday in March be without mention of March Madness?!?

I have 3 brackets going this year: mine, Ella's (yes, she really did chose the teams...I laid out cards with each team's name and logo/mascot on it and whichever one she picked up first was what I went with....and I have video evidence in case you don't believe me!) and my kindergarteners' (we voted as a class for each matchup). As of 9 PM last night, all 3 of the brackets weren't doing awful...but so far my kindergarteners' is my best bet! They did really good with their picks I think! And my daughter did pick the Georgia State and UCLA upsets yesterday!

2. I finally broke down and ordered a BOB off Amazon last weekend. (I tried to do a price match and a 20% off coupon at Buy Buy Baby, but they said you could only use one; so I just ordered off Amazon since we had a gift card on there.) It arrived on Tuesday, and I am OBSESSED! Ella likes it, too! Here she is blowing kisses...

 We have been running lots outside since's like a whole new world! My pace time is almost 30 seconds faster than it was last week when I ran with our old stroller! The BOB basically pushes is so magical! I wish I had just gotten a BOB sooner...can't believe it took me 13.5 months to get with the program! 

3. On Monday, Portrait Innovations was offering free pictures with the Easter Bunny, so of course I was all over that! Unfortunately, Ella was unsure about the EB...

She actually thought he was a "woof woof" and started barking at him. She was pretty excited about the whole thing, until I plopped her on his lap and she freaked out that I left her with this strange rabbit, who was in fact, not a woof woof (I would be scared too, if we're being honest...)! 

4. Last Sunday, I went to see the Cinderella movie with Kathryn. It was so good, but SO sad! I think because Cinderella's real name was Ella, it made the movie even more meaningful to me? Ella was home with her dada. She moved her chair to in front of the door, so she could read while looking outside. She cracks me up. 

{Never mind that the book is upside down...and it's a Halloween book....}

5. This past week was Rainbow Week in kindergarten, where the kids wore a different color of the rainbow each day. Of course Ella had to participate, too!

Today is purple day, but she was sleeping when I left the house, so that's why it's not in the collage above! But she does have on a purple dress! :) 

Have a great weekend!! :)


  1. Llama Llama Trick or Treat is one of Gavin's favorite's too :)

  2. I agree - LONGEST WEEK EVER!

    We still have Llama Llama Valentine out and Happy Birthday Baby. I have to sneak the seasonal ones away when she's in bed! LOL
