Friday Five

1. This weekend I'm going to my future sister-in-laws Bachelorette party in D.C. I can't even tell you the last time I went out for drinks and dancing in D.C. I used to do it all the time back in my younger, single days but since being married and having a kid I just have no interest. In fact I told Kristian I have no idea what to wear. What do people wear out to clubs nowadays? I packed up all my old Ho clothes a long time ago. It should be fun assuming I can actually stay awake past 10pm. #SoOld #SoLame

2. I'm actually pretty excited about Easter next weekend. We are having our parents over for a late lunch and we are even planning to do a small Easter Egg Hunt out in front of our houses with our two neighbors that have a 3 year old and 2 year old that Hunter is friends with. I can't wait to see the kids run around and look for eggs. Sad that I'm more excited to watch my kid hunt for Easter eggs than to go out dancing at midnight in the city. My how times have changed!

3. My friend and neighbor Aimee gave me these sandals the other night. She ordered them off of Zulily for her daughter thinking they were a toddler size 6 turns out she ordered a women's size 6 by mistake. She can't return them and I happen to wear a size 6 so win for me! They are really cute and comfy.

4. I am loving the warmer weather and longer daylight hours in the evening. We have gotten back in our routine of hanging out in front of the house in the evenings once I get home from work. Hunter gets to play with his two little friends while I get to talk to their parents and have some social time. We are so lucky to have such nice neighbors and the fact that they have kids the same age as Hunter is a huge bonus! Also, Hunter has suddenly gotten very good at riding his balance bike. He will now get a running start, lift his feet and glide down the sidewalk for several feet. He keeps saying "Go fast, go fast" He will give me a heart attack one of these days.

5. There still isn't much progress in the potty training department. We tried the underwear thing but he didn't seem to care when he peed in the underwear. I had hoped it would bother him enough that he would be more willing to go on the potty but no such luck. I really just don't think he's ready. He will still go once or twice a day at school but he has no interest in going at home and I'm okay with that. He'll get there.

Those sandals are super cute! What a great freebie.

Does he mind sitting in a wet diaper? They have the diapers that don't absorb as much so the kids are more motivated to use the toilet without pressuring them. It happens when it happens, and he's young yet.

When we had Jackie's bachelorette party in DC, we spent the night. At one point, half of us went to the hotel to bed while she continued on. In our defense, we did have her shower early that morning so it was a long day for us and not quite as long for the (younger) bride. Luckily, DC isn't an all-night type of city either.

Cute sandals! Nice score definitely.

recently saw a potty chair, that wasn't a chair, but you put it on the actual toilet, so that they get used to going on the big thing. Maybe if you just consistently put him on there every hour, he will get the hint.

I am right there with you on the drinks and dancing thing. What is dancing? The last time I went out with friends, I was in your shoes. What should I wear? I'm pretty sure nothing I wear is anything close to "club" attire. But oh well!

Have fun!

sounds like he's not ready for potty training; he'll get there in his own time.

Love the sandals! Score!

How awesome that Hunter is getting so good on his balance bike. Keep thinking of getting one for Lids. I am sure she'd love it.

I have no idea what people wear out to clubs these days and would probably look ridiculous myself.. and fall asleep on the dance floor?! :/ But I am sure you will have a blast!!! :)

It's funny -- I was recently asked to be a bridesmaid in a friend's wedding (another ECU AOPi, what what!) and... I'm actually pretty excited to party for her bachelorette! Pre-kiddo, I kind of preferred to be a homebody, but now? A night out dancing sounds like a blast :)

PS if you ever want to do Burke Lake together, just let me know!

Ha, I'm right with you with "clubbing clothes". My bff is getting married this year and I have to plan her B-party. If I had it my way, it would be a 5pm dinner and then everyone at home asleep by 10pm. I don't think it is going to work out like that! :)

Hope you had a fun night dancing at the bachelorette party! That Easter egg hunt sounds like such a cute idea...I'm sure all of the kids will love it!
