In other favorites, I am participating in a Favoites collab over on my YouTube Channel. I have 5 super random things that I have been loving lately.

Takstar Microphone
Ped socks
Portable Car Jumper
Cordless Vacuum/Dust Buster
Dry Shampoo

I found this dress for Mini Fox and she has nothing to wear it to, but I'm in love and had to get it for her. I was waiting and it went out of stock, and I was super disapointed, so I knew if it came back I HAD to get it for her...soon, is it okay that I want one for myself too? They also have a version of it on Amazon.

They also have a plaid version on Amazon, how stinkin' cute is this?


This is strange and super fascinating at the same what made them try this in the first place?

haha, this is me...with toast...

Yep need to make these STAT...Mr. did say he wanted Cheese cake for his birthday...this would just be a slight variation of that...

Happy Birthday Mr.

Happy Birthday Mr.! Today is Mr.'s 41st birthday....I feel like it was just yesterday that we were celebrating 40. Although today is just a normal day of work, and baseball  practice, I wouldn't want to do life with anyone else. Okay enough about the mushy stuff. Last time I shared things I love about Mr. this time I thought I would share some random facts about him.

  • He is a huge tea drinker and drinks at least a cup a day. But also really likes coffee and we just recently got a coffee machine, because he thought his addiction would be too great if he could make his own coffee at will. It didn't and he's pretty good to making one cup in the morning and then drinking tea for the rest of the afternoon.
  • Speaking of tea and coffee, he has a whole coffee/tea station in our kitchen.

  • He can only drink tea from a ceramic cup (minus paper ones), but will not drink it from a plastic or steel cup as he thinks he can taste the plastic/tin in his tea. His tea cups are ginormous!

  • Makes a point to drive his "fun" car to work once a week and drive with the top down. I call it the yellow car...well because it's yellow, but it's a 1998 Mercedes...something or other.

Man that took longer than expect to find a picture of the yellow car.
  • His next fun car he wants a Porsche of some sort. (mine is going to be a Maserati)
  • Has lived on his own since he was 18.
  • Bought his first condo (the one I moved into when we got married), when he was 22.
  •  Plays several instruments and went to a performing arts school for high school. 
  •  Was in the California All State Band and was first chair (for those that know music that's a big deal)
  • Self taught guitar and piano
  • Writes songs in his spare time (like he has spare time!)
  • Got his MBA last year and is now working on a second masters. 
  • Really wants a 100 inch TV
  • He really likes being organized, see his tea cabinet above. Our garage cabinets looks similar
I think that's enough random stuff for Mr....hopefully he's not too embarrassed by it all.

Happy Birthday Mr.! Here is to many more years of birthday celebrations. Sorry I didn't have time to make cheesecake like you requested, but I will make one in the near future for you!

Easter Outfits For The Whole Family

Happy Wednesday Foxy Friends! Today I thought I would share some Easter outfits for the whole family. Surprisingly it was super hard to find things that I liked. Normally I go crazy and have a bazillion outfits I want to style, not so much this year. But I was able to put this together. Yellow isn't my color, but I think it looks great on so many people. I went a little more casual as it's typically pretty warm here for Easter.

My Mom Fail And I Lived To Tell The Tale

Today I'm linking u with Shay and Ericka for another round of How's topic is mom fail and lived to discuss. Gosh where to start with this one....haha.

So we're at Legoland...we are with my cousin and her two kids.

Her husband was working, so it was her, her two kids, myself, my two kids and Mr. Mr. is being the crazy guy he is an entertaining the kids via, driving the stroller like a madman. My cousin rented a stroller from Legoland, while we were using our double Bob. He had all the kids (yep all 4 of them) in the rented stroller. We had a fast pass, for lack of better word, that would get us into the fast track lane of all the rides. The kids wanted to go on this shooting game that has an Indian Jones type feel to it. So we all race to what we thought was that fast pass entrance. The man told us, no it's over there, so we all race over there. All of us thinking that Mini Fox was with we're in front of the line, and we're discussing who is riding with who on the ride...when suddenly we realize, Mini Fox is missing. Mr. and I immediately start running toward where we last were (about 50 feet), and we see Mini Fox crying hysterically running towards us...thank goodness! All in all, it was probably 2-3 minutes she was missing! But really 20 seconds from the time we discovered it! We asked her what she was doing for those 1-2 minutes before she started running...she said...I was running in circles. Suffice to say, we always keep a good count of who is where now!

Please tell me one of your stories so I don't feel so bad!

3 Steps How To Organize Your Bathroom

When I saw this on Keri's blog I knew that I wanted to participate, stuff like this kicks my butt into gear and gets stuff done! This week we're working on bathrooms. Truth be told I did this declutter last year for my year of organization, but never posted pictures, so I thought this would be that perfect opportunity.

So here is where I started:

Pretty bad right? Let me give you a close up.

Related: How To Organize Your Pantry

Okay here is what you need to clean out your bathroom. Remember it's always going to get worse before it gets better.

Step 1:

Take every single thing out of the cabinets. I tried to categorize as I was cleaning out, and then also purging, you know things that had a layer of oil or was a funky color went immediate in the trash.

Step 2:

Figure out what sort of storage you want. Ideally this step is done after you figure out what you have and what you need. But for my purposes, I knew I needed more drawers, so I bought this drawer system, and then bought a variety of different size drawers to go in it, so I could pick and choose. This worked out perfect for me. I just returned what I didn't use.

Next time to organize what you are going to potentially want in each drawer.

Step 3:

Make drawers and start organizing. I know easier said than done, but it can be done!

And then 6 hours later you're done! Okay it took me that long, but I did stop to make dinner and feed the know parenting stuff.

Now I just need to get our cabinets re-stained and I would be golden.

I know easier said than done, but in reality, when you're done you just feel better about yourself.

I also made a video on how exactly I organized my bathroom, in case you are a more of a show and tell type person.

Time to get organized with the Clear the Clutter Challenge!

Friday Favorites #154

Hi Foxy Friends! Happy Friday. Today we have Baby Fox's parent/teacher conference, I'm sure it will go great, he loves school, especially math. Have today off, not sure what I'm going to do, gym...and then shopping? Blog stuff? Filming stuff? Hmmm...what to do, what to do... anyway, onto my favorites from the week!

In case you missed it on the blog:

Monday: TBB Asks: Beauty Edition
Tuesday: Butternut Squash Lasagna
Wednesday: Off The Shoulder Little Black Dress + Currently
Thursday: FabFitFun Spring Unboxing

Last weekend we went to Medieval was my first time and man was it fun! Lots of cheering and eating and laughing for all involved.

So funny, Mini Fox said she wanted to wear a princess dress, so we texted our friend and said that she was going to be wearing a princess dress and to bring one too...both girls ended up picking the same princess, how funny is that?

Our friends daughter was crowned Queen of the Tournament, so I got them to quickly take a picture with Mini Fox. Our knight threw Mini Fox a carnation from the arena.

Our knight battling it to the very end to win, so cool that I captured the sword spark!

As soon as it was over both of my kids said, when can we go again? Oh and if you are thinking of going, the food is REALLY good too. Considering how may people they are feeding!

In other things going on in our world. Monday Mr. worked from home and sends me these pictures...

Looking closer...a little lizard got himself stuck in our pool overflow...poor thing.  (that drain for reference is about 5 inches wide)

Don't worry, Mr. made up a little escape route for him...Mini Fox wanted to use her blue shovel...I think they came up with a better solution.

We're happy to report we thinking he got away. There was no lizard in our pool filter (Mr. checked a few hours later), and no lizard sunk to the bottom of the let's just continue to think he got out and is living a happy lizard life catching bugs.

Last friday I made fish tacos...we decided we didn't know what seasoning to try, so what did we do? We tried a little of each. All of it was awesome!

Saturday I met up with my bestie and her son, but while we were waiting I took this picture of the kids, and while they were wrapping their arms around each other (I did not prompt that) Mini Fox says...My bestest bud ever. Awwww, so sweet.

I couldn't help but take a picture of this the other night. I love sleeping kids. It's totally not creepy right?

Baby Fox finally got a hair cut...phew, it was getting long and my dad asked if he could take him. Looking sharp Baby Fox.

You guys I love me a good subscription box, and it's taking all of my inner strength to not get this one combines my two favorite things, candy and subscription boxes. The ONLY reason I don't get this...the I would eat it all myself and then feel super guilty about eating that much sugar...every..month...anyway, would you get this? Or do you want to get me this?


How awesome that they are making this a movie?! And a grown up Christopher Robin...I'm so excited to take the kids to see it,  all of my childhood memories are flooding back right now.

And what?! I can't wait for this, I want more of both of these trailers!

What are you guys up to this weekend? We were going to head towards Legoland, but it is suppose to we'll see what happens. Time change Sunday, and then I have to wake up at 3:15am for it's like 2:15am...I might die next week. For whatever reason the Spring forward is always so much harder to adjust to. Anyone else?
