Finally Friday!

My favorite day is upon us, I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and even more fantastic weekend! 

I confess I am super excited for this next week. My cousins will be here! 

It has been way too long since I have seen my cousins! I think we are going on a year and a half. One of my cousins has a baby almost the same age as Bennett, and I know they will just have a blast together! :) We will be going to the zoo, and then we are having a family get together that weekend with all the family that lives here. 

I confess that I think the Praise Baby DVD's and their CD's are the cutest thing. 

I should probably confess that when I make dinner, Bennett watches 30 minutes of a show...whether it be Sesame Street, Baby Einstein, Mickey Mouse. It allows me to get dinner ready for all of us, and he is usually getting tired at this point so it helps him settle down a bit. I rented these Praise Baby DVD's from the library and they are adorable. They sing praise and worship songs and show relaxing pictures and pictures of babies. You can either have an adult sing, kids sing, or just the music. I also got the Praise Baby CD's at the library and we have enjoyed listening to them in the morning. 

I confess that I'm so ready for summer time. I love the beach, pool, water parks...and the thunderstorms!

Today we had a thunder storm, and despite my hatred for lightning when I am outside...I love storms when I am safe inside. It reminds me of the summer time. I'm so excited to have some fun times ahead with my precious Bennett in the pool, beach, water table, water parks...the options are endless in Florida. 

I confess that I never finished the book I checked out on my Kindle from our local library before they took it back from me. 

I loved the book and I need to check it out again and finish it. The book was titled Boys Should be Boys. It brings a perspective to everything a boy should be...It was funny how this afternoon Bennett basically begged me to take him outside. I so did not want to go outside, it was sticky and just not where I wanted to be. But I went, it made him so happy to be out there. Just sitting in his stroller, and blowing bubbles and playing with his toys. We usually lay down a quilt and play in the grass, but I couldn't find the darn thing. So I gave up, and continued blowing bubbles.  

I confess I have been working on some cute Mother's Day Printables. 

I love printables, and with my first mothers day coming up--I'm excited to put one up on the mantle with pictures of me and my little man. I hope to share these with you soon, and my top Mother's Day gifts.

  1. I am so interested in those Praise Baby DVDs and CDs! I'll have to go check them out!

    1. They are adorable, I will be bringing them back to library soon...put a hold on them!

  2. Can't wait for summer too ... it's warming up a little here (UK) and they keep promising us a heatwave! x

    1. I feel like even when I was there in June it was least compared to Florida. ;)

  3. I love the library confession! I have had a popular book for the last few weeks, and just got a notification it's due back. I haven't even TOUCHED it yet! I can't renew it because it's got a lengthy hold list... boo. It's hard to squeeze in reading time, isn't it? And I love the Praise Baby DVDs too. They are so cute. Hope you had a wonderful weekend!! Thanks for linking up again at H54F!
