Friday Favorites #121

Happy Monday! Today is the last day of school for Baby Fox, he is officially a 1st grader. Wait, what?! How did that happen? Anyway, I'm off celebrating with him, he wanted to get In and Out and do a picnic at the park and then for dinner he wants to go to BJ's Pizza, who am I to argue with that. Of course it's a celebration, so we're going to obviously get a Pazookie.

In case you missed it this week:

Thursday: 5 Tips To Reach Your Weight loss Goals

Here's the video I posted this week how to do a fancier fuller ponytail. It's much easier than you think!

This past week, we taught Baby Fox how to ride a bike! Totally long over due, but he didn't really want learn and we never pushed him. But he got the balance part within 10-15 minutes, and was riding longer distances at the end of the hour.
First time getting the balance on his own

After about an hour and a half of practicing.
On Sunday we took him to this park that has a ton of space to learn how to ride a bike, he learned how to start the bike on his own and even tried standing up while riding, which he did, I can't even do that!

In other weekend things, Saturday I went to my new favorite class, Purebarre, instead of using a ballet barre like other classes, we use that weighted stick down there. I sort of love it and it works muscles I don't normally use otherwise.

Afterwards we headed to a birthday party. Balloon animals, a bounce house/water slide and water balloons. She's walking her dog in case you didn't know.

Then we headed home to have some friends from out of town visit. The kids went in the pool, can I tell you how great it is to have kids that can swim and not drown. Of course we were right there, but none of the adults actually had to get into the water...amazing.

Sunday was a mega lazy day, layed around, and then went and took Baby Fox to ride his bike, and I did a ton of errands for Baby Fox's birthday party next weekend, yikes I better get on it, I haven't done any planning other than buying stuff, need to start DIYing stuff STAT!

Our friends had spent the night and woke up at 5:45...the kids were tired, this one was tired of scootering around and just wanted to relax.

After naptime I was doing computer stuff and I got up to do something with dinner, and came back to dang cute.

You guys our tv broke. The kids were watching it and heard this loud pop and then the tv went! It's only 7.5 years old, it's not suppose to break like that is it? Well Mr. and I figured, it's already broken, might as well try and fix it right? Can't break it any more, so we looked up some videos on YouTube, I used my multi-meter (that thing that measure voltage and resistance), and did confirm that our power board was broken. I was trying to figure out which diodes and resistors I should switch out when Mr. said he found the whole board on ebay for $80, what? Sold, my time is worth more then that, it would have probably taken forever to try and figure out which ones we needed to replace and what the part numbers were. 

In case you were curious, which you probably aren't, it was that big yellow/gold board there that was bad.
Two days later...had the board, installed it...and it works! What?! Amazing, I feel like that is a good start to the week. Sorry about being in my gym clothes but #reallife.

And we have a working TV! Anyone seen this? It's on Hulu and really good, highly recommend it. We've only seen 3 episodes, but can't wait to see where it goes!

Now onto some blogger love with The Blended Blog.

I love this new link up I found. They just started this, so it's too late for me for this month, but I"m totally doing this next month. It's like 10 on the 10th, but it isn't on the 10th of the month, just any random day you chose. The next link up is on July 12 and then August 16th. So link up those pictures!

We're also starting a new Monday series over on The Blended Blog, it's called Summer Time Fun, here are the topics for Monday for the next couple of months (On July 3rd there are some questions to be posted next week!)

Take a look at this post. It's all about how we look at food, instead of thinking diet, think Edit, like edit the way you want to eat food, instead of grabbing that sweet treat, grab some fruit to get that little sugar fix. I know that strawberries make me insanely happy, so I should grab for those instead of the ice cream that I ate last night, oops! Kelly wrote a book called, From Diet to Edit: Discover Freedom in a New Approach to Food*, go check it out!

P.S. I was not paid to showcase this, I just thought it was a cool thought and wanted to share.

Have you met Penny yet? She's so sweet and has some great stuff on her blog, this week she shared what looks like the easiest, yummiest bundt cake ever! Must go check her out.

I just like that they did the whole video in the car, with their equipment on their laps with seat belts...I like it. So talented.

Apparently I am all about making videos using objects to make music this week. It blows my mind how many talented people there are out there. I am so happy people like this have YouTube to spread their talent, instead of having to wait for some producer to "discover" them. How they did this I have no idea, their little celebration at the end when they finish is too cute.

Might as well continue on with the using strange things to sing, this girl is using the echo in a well, so pretty.
