5 On Friday: April 8th, 2016 Edition

I definitely had a favorite post this week: Christian Phrases To Avoid at Kelly's Korner. I feel like someone finally expressed how I feel. I have always disliked the phrase "everything happens for a reason" even though I occasionally use it. Sometimes things don't happen for a reason and sometimes saying that doesn't make other feel better. It's just a good read. It made me think about other phrases I use and ones that are commonly used in the Christian community that aren't based on anything in the Bible.

Last week I did a post a my 5 favorite cosmetic products. Check it out and let me know if you agree about any of these.

I also posted some carpet cleaning tips if you are working on your Spring Cleaning.

I have started planning Sophie's birthday. Of course, she has been planning since last year. We aren't doing a Cinderella party, but this meme makes me rethink that.

Yesterday we made a Target run. I got a Vanilla Bean Frap and Heidi got hooked. Don't worry, no caffeine. Every time I pulled it away she would do a squeal and hold her hands out.

That's it. I hope you all have a great weekend!

    1. I seem to remember a girl I went to school with having a leaf raking party. I didn't know her well, but another friend of mine did. She had to bring her own rake and that was the "theme". Creative moms.

  2. Oh my goodness, Heidi with the Frapp is so cute! My son does the same thing when we give him something he wants really bad!
