Favorites from this past week- 5 on Friday!

Friday, April 3, 2015

Hi! Happy Friday!  It was a "short" week for us as my oldest daughter has today off for Good Friday and she also has Monday off!  We are looking forward to some sunshiney weather this weekend and celebrating EASTER! :)

How has your week been?  Sure hope it was a good one! 

Now time to share my 5 Friday Favorites! :)

This past Sunday, my husband and I celebrated our 7 year wedding anniversary! In case you are interested, I wrote a post about some favorite parts of our wedding here! :)
We were able to sneak out for a couple hours for a lunch date and we had such a fun time!  Aaron really is my best friend and my all time favorite person...I am a lucky lady :) 
POTTY TRAINING SUCCESS has been happening at our house the past 3 days!!
My two oldest daughters were potty trained at 2 1/2 years old.  My oldest daughter took about 3 days to get used to the whole deal- but then she was totally fine.  My 2nd oldest daughter literally potty trained herself! HA! She asked my mom to wear panties, my mom gave her some and BOOM.  That was it!  My youngest daughter is one month away from turning 3 and we have been talking about the potty since she was 2.  She has had NO interest and has actually gotten totally hysterical when we have attempted to potty train her! It has driven us NUTS.  Seriously- I had basically come to terms with her not being able to go to preschool this upcoming fall! Well...I put a pull up on her on Tuesday and after some major freaking out, she went on the potty and realized it was NOT THAT BAD! HA!  Since then, she has been rocking it out! Not one accident, dry during her naps and even going #2 on the potty! She has been using her little potty, wearing new Hello Kitty panties from her Baba and getting a Reese's butter cup (or marshmallows or chocolate chips:) when she goes on the potty! I can't tell you how excited we are to have only ONE kid in diapers! YAY!
So proud of our Celine! :)

My oldest daughter Charlotte is learning how to read and write words by sounding them out and it is PRECIOUS.  She wrote me this card for our wedding anniversary and I just loved it.  Can you tell I like to bake and she has a major sweet tooth?! HA!

We are SO excited to make our annual bunny cake this Sunday for our Easter dessert!  These are our bunny cakes from the past 3 can tell we don't consult Pinterest for our Bunny Cake designs...we actually let the girls be totally in charge of how we decorate it.  It is one of our favorite family traditions and my girls have been talking all week about 
"THE bunny cake" :)  
(In case your curious- I use one cake mix and make 6 cupcakes (3 for each ear) and use the rest of the batter to fill a round cake pan.  I make homemade cream cheese icing for the frosting.)
 So yummy and easy!! 
SO looking forward to celebrating the most important day of the year in our Church with my family!
