Five on Friday: Feb.26.2016 Edition

What a week! I took a little blog break because of a very unexpected long school break for Sophie. The weather was so crazy. Sixties last Friday and loads of ice/snow Wednesday. I also have been getting some annoying headaches. All those things had me a bit off this week, but I survived. Let's go ahead and jump in: 

[ONE] The Very Long Break From School
Want to have an excited kid? Turn a 4 day weekend into a 6 day weekend. Then the one day they go has a 2 hour delay. Monday and Tuesday was scheduled off and after some serious snow there were 2 snows days  I'm sure there are plenty of parents in our school district ready to pull their hair out. Plenty of parents includes myself.

[TWO] Visiting Family and A Trip To Boonshoft Museum of Discovery

Heidi loved this recycling truck.

With the long break, we spent time visiting my family. Sophie had a Girl Scout event Saturday afternoon. We made the 3 hour drive after that and stayed until Tuesday. We got to see my grandma's new house, do a little shopping and visit the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery. I  was so excited to go back and then once I got there I was a little sad. It has changed a lot in the last 3.5 years. The part Sophie loved the most when she was little was gone. Regardless, it was fun, but it made me a little sad. If you are in Dayton, Ohio you should definitely go. It is 100% all kids, hands on museum. I think best geared towards kids 4-8. 
While we were there...

[THREE] Heidi and I did some shopping. 
We went to TJ Maxx and a few other places.I always feel like such a bargain hunter when I'm there. Isn't my partner in crime just adorable? 

I didn't get much, but a new water bottle. I am totally going to be using this a lot BECAUSE....

[FOUR] No More Chug life For Me!
One of my goals this year was to put my soda addiction to rest. Yes, I used the word addiction. While there is no comparison to a drug/alcohol /tobacco addiction, I definitely had a problem. Some days I drank an embarrassing amount of soda and I have been doing it for years. Coke-a-Cola was the drug of choice. Between the caffeine and sugar there were few other drinks that compared and water definitely wasn't one of them. After 26 days, I still want the fizzle of a coke, but I'm doing pretty good.

[FIVE] Fuller House Is Finally Here!
I may have even gotten a little sentimental and teary eyed watching
the trailer. All the nostalgia is just too much.
Anyone else feel the same?

Thanks for stopping by and come back soon! 
Have a great weekend!
