THE BOYS TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLE BIRTHDAY PARTY

Tmnt_(3)

I am blessed to say that after being in the hospital for over a month I was well enough to get out of the hospital for the boys birthday party. My oldest turned 5 years old and the youngest turned 3 years old making Mommy feel like her babies are growing too fast! 🙁

On 2-28-15 the boys had a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Birthday Party the oldest had a  Michelangelo cake (the orange turtle) and the youngest had Leonardo cake (the blue turtle). Both boys had a blast and enjoyed themselves which made me feel good.

Here are a couple of pictures of the boys at their Birthday Party!

The birthday boys and brotherly love!

MAMA MONDAY’S


Leslyn's Lovely Life

Today I am linking up with Leslyn’s Lovely Life for Mama Monday’s for the first time.

Life has been challenging however I am a strong person and will overcome the hurdles especially for my family!

Can you believe it’s almost the middle of the month, where has the time gone? Talking about time flying by why did my BFF Eboni bring me my birthday gift yesterday almost a month late? lol That’s what I love about her she’s ALWAYS late even to her own wedding. lol

Today I plan on finish decorating the boys room however I will share a glimpse of it before it’s finished. My lovely Mother and second youngest sister is helping me out a lot which I truly love that about them!

Mom & Sister

My Mom & Sister.

I love being a Mommy and doing for my boys! They are my blessings from above! BLESSED I AM!

A BUSY MOMMY WHO NEEDS A VACATION

I apologize due to my lack of posting however everything had been hectic and I am sure we all have experienced those moments where we just want to get away from everyone and have some “Me Tyme” to think.

Finally the hubby, the boys and I will be taking our first trip to Florida and of course we will be visiting Disney World! I can’t wait to see their beautiful faces brighten up once we get there and of course I’m taking the Kodak and video camera to capture these special moments. 🙂

We still have a few weeks before we leave however I need to pack now because I am a last minute packer and end up forgetting to pack a lot of items. Anyone wants to help me pack? lol

On the other hand the boys and I took pictures…

Friday Fave Five Blog Hop 8-15-2014

 

Today I am linking up with Moms Got Mail for Friday Fave Five Blog Hop (this is her 19th blog hop which happens to be one of my favorite numbers..

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BEST FRIEND Ebolicious (Eboni)!

We have a date to take current pictures, dinner and a movie.

eb&me

1. One of the bestie Ebolicous Gifts…It’s a beautiful plaque.

ebonigift

2. Kindness

I would like to thank Jen at  Moms Got Mail got mail because she has helped me a lot, which I find very difficult in the blogging business. She has also given her opinion on matters that had nothing to do with blogging. Jen is beautiful inside and out, kind hearted and just an awesome woman all around and I just want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart because you didn’t have to do all you have done. It may have been little to you but it’s huge in my eyes!

thankyou3.My Favorite Online Purchase (& Something for you Mothers).

I bought the boys Pea coats from Zulily and really like them however they are not what I expected but I still love them plus they are double breasted so I will be making many more purchases. It’s ridiculous how many sales they have on high quality items. To those mother doing school shopping click here to save a lot of money. Plus they have tons of other products besides clothes.

I bought three of these coats (4, 5, and 5/6) because I wasn’t sure if their clothes ran true to size. Thank God I did that because these coats run small plus I like my boys clothes to fit them a certain way.

boyscoat4. Love your love ones

My best friend Ebolicous husband lost his Mom last Tuesday and the hardest thing to see is your loved ones in pain and there’s nothing you can do but be there for them. With that being sad cherish your loved ones because tomorrow is never promised but death is guaranteed to each and everyone of us!

5. On a lighter note

God knew what he was doing when he blessed me with two little boys because all my life I wanted twin girls. Then I changed my mind a few months into my pregnancy or was it before I got pregnant? lol Anyways I wanted my first child to be a boy because my Mother has four girls and that was my gift to her. So now she has two handsome Grandsons whom she adore.

I love their Bond!

THURSDAY THOUGHTS + GRANDPA & THE BOYS

Today I am linking up with Jen at Ramblings of a Suburban Mom.

Before I began please Check out my GIVEAWAY!!! 🙂

Time is going by fast I can’t believe it’s almost the middle of July. Hopefully today I can take the boys to the carnival because they haven’t been anywhere in three days due to Michigan’s strange weather.

On vacation the boys got a chance to visit their Grandpa after almost 2 years and the crazy part of it is that my oldest son remembers him. That little boy has a great memory especially when it comes to learning, people names and faces. Both of my boys are smart! My oldest keeps saying he wants to go over to his Grandpa’s house but only if he truly knew that Grandpa don’t live around the corner but too many miles away. 🙁  However I did get pictures of the three. 🙂

I love this picture and can’t wait to print all of them out, to add them to the boys baby books (which I’m behind on).

Hopefully Grandpa and the boys can see one another very soon.

Grandpa and his Boys!

MAY 2014 CITRUS LANE BOX REVIEW 4 YEAR OLD +COUPON CODE

citrusbox

Disclosure: This post contains referral  links and my honest opinion.
Citrus Lane Box
Cost: $29.99 Monthly, $24 3 Month Subscription or $21 6 Month Subscription.

This week my four year old was so happy to receive his Citrus Lane Box. His last box was horrible. I believe it was for a 2 year old.

MayCitrusBox

A description sheet was included telling you about each product.

MayInfo

Item One: Goodbyn Bynto, Green $8.99

MayGoodbyn

Those who bought a Citrus Lane Box for May are the first to receive this item. I absolutely love this container! It’ll be great for our vacations and little trips this summer and for when my oldest go back to school. A 25% discount code was included so now I will have to order one for my youngest.

Item Two: DuoTip Washable Markers – 12 ct. $4.99

MayMarkers

Of course both boys wanted this item that is why I bought a separate box for my youngest who is 2 years old. I am happy because their washable markers which is a big plus. 🙂

Item Three: Crocodile Creek Robot Watch $12.99

MayWatch

I literally just bought both of my boys Angry Bird watches. So I may just save this until school starts and by then my oldest will be able to recognize all his numbers and can start to tell time with this type of watch instead of digital. When I ask him what time it is he says “It’s time for lunch”. lol

Item Four: Fresh Feet Wipes for Kids – Grapefruit $3.32

MayFeetWipesI never heard of this however this will come in handy for the boys this summer. Has anyone noticed that people who wear flip flops have the dirtiest feet?

Item Five: Cheez It $1 (the boys ate the bag before I could take a picture. lol
These are the coupons that were included which truly may come in handy.
Maypaper

Everything totaled $32.29 being that I paid $29.99 for the subscription. Since my oldest son loved his Citrus Lane Box I will be sticking with it and I signed up my two year old for one.

Did you receive a
Citrus Lane Box? What did you get and did you like what you received? I would suggest any parent to try this box at least once plus they have a coupon code “TAKE20OFF” and save $20 off your first box making it only $9 which you can’t pass up.

THURSDAY THOUGHTS & THROWBACKS

Today I am linking up with Jen at Ramblings of a Suburban Mom.

Finally we are getting some good weather here in Michigan. Today it is supposed to get up in the 80’s. I wish you all could see the smiles on my children faces. As soon as my oldest come home from school which is his last day we will be off to the zoo.

Speaking of this being my oldest last day of school it’s a little difficult explaining to a 4 year old he will not be going back for a few months however we’ll take it one day at a time.

I was going through my pictures and found some pictures that were taken on my babies first day of school and of course the the youngest had to get his taken as well. It’s amazing how much they have grown since September 2013 and now.

HAPPY EASTER

The Family and I had a beautiful and blessed Easter. We went to church to hear the word and celebrate the reason for Easter.

Because of Him 

Jesus is the Son of God, our Savior and Redeemer.  Because of Him, death is not the end, and life takes on new meaning. We can change, we can start over—and we can live again with God. This Easter, celebrate His life and discover all that’s possible because of Him.

I am truly Blessed and greatful for his sacrifice.

If it was not for him I wouldn’t have these two handsome boys!

They had a blast with their new hummer truck (thanks craigslist) and loads of goodies including their basket stacked on top of it.

Please share your Easter day by commenting. 🙂

Family Trip to Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, Illinois

Last week the whole family and I went to Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, Illinois and had fun. Despite my oldest being afraid to go up to the glass to see the fishes and etc. my youngest wasn’t which was surprising. I bought both boys these cute shark hats that you’ll see in some of the pictures. I can’t wait until our next adventure!

Here is a Collage of our trip and getting little boys to pose for the camera is not easy. lol
