Friday Favorites

It's Friday!!  Just like every Friday over here, I'm joining my girls, Andrea and Narci, to share our Friday Favorites.  You should too!

My guys had a FAVORITE moment from the week.  They went to Opening Day for the Rangers on Friday afternoon.  The weather was gorgeous and they had the BEST time!  The only thing that would have made it better would have been a Ranger's win!  Bummer! :)


 While the boys were at the ballpark, we were busy hula-hooping!  hahaha!!  Ebby Lee got a hula hoop for her birthday and that thing has been busy!  After picking Ebby Lee up from school on Friday, we all played/hung out outside.  We all took a turn at the hula hoop.  Some might say I was being a little dramatic.  :)  Definitely a FAVORITE moment of the week.  I kept laughing at Ebby Lee because she could NOT hula hoop without her hands up in the air.  What do you know!  I gave it a go and I couldn't do it either.  Can YOU??

 We all went to the mall later to get Ebby Lee's ears pierced!!  She picked out her FAVORITE pair of pink flower earrings.  I was so proud of her!!  She was extremely nervous, but did so well!!  Not a tear was shed!

Grandma treated these two to a carousel ride...their FAVORITE!


Tuesday night I met some of my FAVORITES for dinner.  We shared appetizers, entrees, and even dessert.  It was seriously my FAVORITE way to eat a meal!

Last night we had a little girls against boys basketball game.  That picture of me on the right makes me LOL every time I see it.  I'm 99% sure my hands aren't supposed to look like that.  hahahaha!! AND...Tab told me to try to dunk.  That's how far away I was even though I was trying to dunk!  LOL!  The kids were SO into the game and super competitive.  It was definitely a FAVORITE moment.  I'm crazy thankful no one I knew drove by because at one point I was dribbling and singing, "Wanna be a baller".  hahahaha!!  I am NOT a basketball player, but I'm all about being crazy silly with my kids.  Sadly, the girl team lost!

Tab bathed the kiddos while I cleaned up the dinner dishes.  Bowen was leaning against the couch (naked) talking to me.  In a fussy/crying type voice he said, "I'm pottying on the carpet.".  I told him to STOP!!!  And we ran into the bathroom where he finished.  Whew!  Just yesterday he started acting super interested in going potty on the potty.  I am NOT going to rush him.  When I potty trained Ebby Lee it was the most horrible, awful thing because she was not ready!  With Nixon, I waited until he was practically begging me for underwear and I seriously cannot remember one accident.  



One day when I was strolling through Target, I put both of these cardigans in my cart.  I'm normally not a cardigan girl, but these are funky cardigans and I really like them.  They were under $25 so I'm not expecting them to last me for years.  But they're great little transitional spring pieces!

Don't forget this month I've giving away a pair of clear Kate Spade studs to all new PC customers.  I guarantee you Rodan and Fields has the perfect regimen for YOU!  E-mail if you want to learn more at alittlebitofeverything83@yahoo.com.  Also...this month I'm giving CASH to new team members.  We'd love to have YOU join our team.  E-mail me if you want to hear more!

The kiddos and I are tagging along on a football trip this weekend!  I'm praying for great weather and lots of fun!  Hope you have a GREAT weekend too!!

I love those Target cardigans. Perfect for spring!

I have a 2 1/2 year old boy and i was dreading the potty training only because i heard they were more difficult. He was potty trained in less than a month both during the day, naptime and bedtime. We have a few accidents but they are few and far between. What we did was we told him he was done witg diapers and he was gonna start going potty like daddy. We left him in just his pants and he had one accident and couldn't stand being wet and ever since then he went potty!! :)

Elaine Welte said...

I love Target cardigans! But, don't dry them- they'll get fuzzy :( Love your basketball pics! So fun!

Beth Davis said...

I just love reading about your precious family, sweet friend! Hope y'all have a wonderful weekend!!! xx

Erika Slaughter said...

Thank you!!! We need to start a support group for potty trainingn mamas! :)

Erika Slaughter said...

Thanks for the tip!! For $22, I didn't think they'd last long but super cute and affordable!! Hopefully no drying will prolong their life!

Erika Slaughter said...

Thank you!!! :)

Erika Slaughter said...

Next time I'll invite you over for the hula hooping and basketball playing bee could have a Shull versus slaughter game!

Erika Slaughter said...

Yes, you are Miss Cardigan!! You need one with some polka dots!

Erika Slaughter said...

Thank you!

Erika Slaughter said...

I hadn't either but try it sometime...too funny!!

Erika Slaughter said...

Of course you do!!! Hahahahaha! XOXO

Erika Slaughter said...

Oh girl!!! Me too!!

Erika Slaughter said...

I completely agree, Amanda!!! My girlfriends are amazing!!

Erika Slaughter said...

I haven't taken the plunge and put Bowen in uneed wear. Maybe I could send him to your house for a month? :). Haha!! I hope it goes as well for us as it did for you! That's amazing!!

Erika Slaughter said...

I thought so too!!

Erika Slaughter said...

Yes!!! I cut it on Tuesday. It's kind of a combo between all my options. We didn't go too short because I needed a ponytail as an option.

Erika Slaughter said...

You need to come over! Ebby Lee and I will teach you. :).

Anonymous said...

It looks great!!! Thanks for the response! Yes, a pony is #nonnegotiable. Hahaha :) have a good weekend :)

Maggie C. said...

I was going to ask the same thing. It looked so long in the hula hooping pic but shorter in the girlfriends dinner pic. But it didn't look as short as the options you had posted so I thought maybe it was just flipped behind your shoulders and looked shorter.

Amy said...

Love the hula hooping and basketball pics! So fun! We've been doing some hula hooping around here too. I will have to see if any of us can do it without putting our arms in the air. ;)
