Cheers to the Weekend: Family Wedding Edition

Hip, Hip Hooray!!! Only THREE more full weeks of school, followed by a half week, and then we're OUT for summer! That means, 17.5 more days of kindergarten to go, but who's counting?! I would be lying if I said I wasn't ECSTATIC to have all three of my babies home with me this summer. We are so close to the finish line I can taste it!

On that note, here are a few other things I'm saying CHEERS to this week/end:

Healthy 2-year well-checks. Harrison and I headed to the pediatrician Wednesday for his 2-year check up. He is doing great and is a healthy 26 pounds, 2 ounces and 35 inches tall. Although shorter than his older sibs were at this age, he is still at the 70th percentile for height (compared to his older sibs' consistent 90+ percentile for height, ha!). And bonus: no shots this go 'round. Yahoo! And now, his next well-check is not for another year-crazy!

Self promotion. :0 Three things to mention: (1) ebates. Y'all. Come ON. If you online shop, you MUST use ebates. Easy to use, no strings attached, and free money. For realz. (2) Rodan + Fields. Yes, it's everywhere. Yes, it's annoying. Yes, I'm a consultant. Yes, I refuse to post on social media. Yes, I'd love to help out you and your skin. (3) ibotta. A new app my girlfriend ('sup, Jenna!?) introduced me to as another way to get free money, no strings attached. Do you grocery shop? Seriously. Do you? Are you a human who eats food? Then, hello! Why aren't you using ibotta. I just started using it and am obsessed. I love free money! :) 

The great mascara debate. Talk about a #firstworldproblem. I know, I KNOW. This matters absolutely NONE in the grand scheme of things, but it's fine to have a little fun every now and then, right? Okay, so, a couple of weeks ago I asked for mascara recommendations on Facebook and was flooded with suggestions. One dear soul even sent me a couple of samples of different Lancome mascaras to try out. So, I did what any good woman would do for her girlfriends: I tried them all, snapped pics, and now, offer these comparison shots for you to see and judge. Let me know which you think is the winner! I have an opinion now but will hold off on sharing until I hear your feedback. I will also refrain on sharing which mascara is which until next week, to avoid any potential bias. :) So. Here we go:

And on that superficial note, it's time for the weekend to begin! We are THRILLED to have one of my sisters and her fam staying with us all weekend (since arriving last night-woot!). Tonight, we are taking the birthday girl (Happy Birthday, Jess!) out to eat

Tomorrow, we'll be heading to Pinehurst, North Carolina, for my cousin Matt's wedding. He is marrying a beautiful soul we all adore, and we cannot wait to welcome her to our big, happy, crazy family! 

 So, CHEERS to all of that and CHEERS to you, for following along with my lil' ol' blog. Thank you for reading and supporting this space. Have a great weekend, y'all! <3
