$10 Target Haul: February Edition

Happy Monday Foxy Friends! I'm back with the $10 Target Haul link up! It's fun to go into Target and try to find what you can get for $10. I found mostly Valentine's Day things, so even though V-Day was last week, let's roll with it.

I am obsessed with Swedish Fish, and the little ones taste better than the bigger ones. They came out with littl heart shaped ones, and they taste like the little ones...SO dang good. I tried to go back to Target on February 15th, to get the left overs, but there were none...actually all of the Valentine's Day stuff was cleaned up already and the shelves were complete empty...heart breaking...okay, not really but I was super disappointed.

I haven't had the energy to decorate, and I don't have many Valentine's Day things, so I thought the little banner would be cute. Then  Mini Fox and a friend did the rest of the decorating. It's a hodge podge, but they made most of it, and I love it.

Mini Fox painted the background of that sign, and then a friend did the saying because they both love that movie...points to anyone who knows the movie!

I was going to use the cupcake stuff for a treat for Mini Fox's preschool, but they said no treats, then I was going to do fruit cups...but that never happened. So I guess I'll be ready for next year.

So what did you get for $10? Link up down below!

Friday Favorites #151

Happy Friday Foxy Friends! So happy it's Friday. We're getting together with some friends for dinner tonight, and I'm making a Butternut Squash Lasagna. I'm going to try to take pictures and do a post on it. We'll see how much time I have to do that. Anyway, let's get started:

Monday: 10 Memories With Mr.
Tuesday: Meet My People
Wednesday: Valentine's Day Photo Shoot
Thursday: Grocery Haul

So far this year I'm on a roll with the YouTube videos. Please go check out my channel and subscribe, it would mean the world to me! Any videos you want to see? What are your favorites to watch?

Last Thursday went out for a much need MNO. We went to this upscale bar, that we equated to the bar the people go to after they get divorced and are newly single? Or young girls trying to get older sugar daddy's? Yep...all of the above.  But it made for great people watching.

Friday we left for the mountains with some friends, much needed time away with great friends. So much fun, hope we can do this more often!

When we got up there, we got some lunch and then headed to the park before....

Hitting up Snow Tube slopes. But first a picture with Mr. Bear.


It was night tubing, so this was the only picture we got before it got too dark. We left just before the masses got there, as soon as they started closing down some of the runs because they were too dangerous, we figured it a win that no one got hurt and left.

A little Twister before bed.

Saturday while the littlest was napping, took the kids to the park.

Then we went on a small walk/climbing adventure.

Yep they all got up there on their own...through that channel...

Then made their way up to the top of there...I might have had several heart attacks trying to figure out where they were.

Lots of Olympic watching happened...we might have even found Mini Fox's sport...2020 here she comes!

Kidding, she's much for of a luger or slopestyle snowboarder.

When we got back on Sunday, Mr. studied for some tests and I took the kids to In and Out.

The kids get stickers...and this is what Baby Fox did...

I asked him why everyone was sideways and he said "because they just had an earthquake"...haha, so funny, I don't even think he's even woken up for an earthquake before. We had one a few weeks ago and both kids slept right through it.

We love watching the Olympics, especially the snowboarding events. Chloe Kim, hadn't heard of her until last Friday when we started watching the Olympics, but watching her win gold, amazing! And this story I found...made me tear up. What sacrifices parents make for their kids, and I would do it over and over again if I had the chance.

Who else is obsessed with watching? Happy weekending! Talk to you Monday when we have $10 Target haul. If you can, jump on over to Target, find $10 worth of stuff and report back and link up with us!

Happy Valentine's Day

Hi Foxy Friends! Happy Valentine's Day! I decided to take a break on outfit post today to bring you my cuties. I saw this tutorial on Danielle's blog about creating bokeh hearts. I knew I wanted to try this out for Valentine's. When the kids were born, I was all about creating themed pictures for the kids...

Meet My People

Hi Foxy Friends!  I thought since I have some new foxy peeps around I would introduce my people. People you see frequently around these parts. Plus check out the other bloggers below and get to know some new people.

Well I just talked about Mr. yesterday, so go check out that post for more details. But he is the one that supports all the crazy ideas that I have and never once gives me the eye roll when for the 100th time ask for a picture.

Baby Fox:

The one that made me a mother. What can I say, he really was the perfect first child, NEVER cried, I mean never. Is super sensitive, so I have to watch my tone with him, because if he thinks you're mad at him, he will cry. Is the most loving and caring brother any sister could ask for and pretty much bends over backwards to do anything to make her stop crying. (Yes she does use this to her advantage sometimes). Loves baseball and soccer, learning, especially math, and is currently loving his trampoline class. He almost has a front flip.

Mini Fox:

What can I say, she enter this world, just like her personality, loud, in charge and knowing what she wants. She has the best imagination, can entertain herself for hours and loves to tell a good story. Loves her brother something fierce and always wants to do what he is doing. Loves her morning cuddles, was a super hard transition when he started going to school full time and didn't get her morning cuddles with him.

Parents and Siblings:

They are the best, I could not ask for a better extended family for my kids. I love that they live close enough to us that they are a constant in the kids lives and that they each have their own relationship with them. I don't know what we would do without them, helping us out all the time, taking the kids to and from activities. I love that my dad can drop off donuts on a random Wednesday just because.


Many of them are missing from our most recent get together, but I love that we are able, as adults, or organize ourselves and let our children be able to grow up like how we did when we were younger. Although we all live within a 100 mile radius, and sometimes it's not always easy to get together, we make it happen. Heck I see my cousin who lives 100 miles away probably more than I see some friends that live miles from me...

These kids, I love them so much! How much longer can we get them to wear matching PJ's? Forever? The oldest (farthest left) said the only reason he was wearing them was because Auntie Sarah bought them, you better believe I'm riding that Auntie train as long as possible, haha.
