Baby Withdraws

I have personally been going through baby withrdraws lately...and it's a little scary.  My oldest son will be turning 18 in November and my youngest just turned 13....my oldest of course has become very independent and is starting to take on a life of his own.  My youngest is just growing up way too fast and personally I just DON'T like it!  I have been going back and forth about having another baby...not sure that is in the cards for me but after browsing the internet I came across this crib and fell in LOVE with the whole collection!!

Hudson Collection in Licorice

This is the Hudson Collection and is by BONAVITA

Simple lines, elegant style, the Hudson Collection╩╝s graceful proportions harmonize with a wide range of individual tastes. Urban contemporary, country cottage, traditional or transitional, the Hudson Collection with its classic finishes and stunning looks is the perfect collection to express the perfect style—yours.

I'll still be here pondering over my baby thoughts!!

Friday's Favorite Things - Linking Up {2)

WINNER IS:
BEV......

Bev said...
I follow you on google. I love something sweet like a pina colada or daiquiris. That looks really good right now because it is so hot here.


Well we've made it to Friday.....hopefully the weather holds up this weekend so that I can enjoy some
 sunshine along with a 
MARGARITA
(which happens to be my FRIDAY's FAVORITE THING)!!

I enjoy having a Margarita....but reagular Margarita's have a TON of sugar and we all know that sugar
just goes straight to the hips.
So while at Wal Mart last summer and looking for a Margarita Mix I came across this.....

Margarita Lite Mix

NO SUGAR ADDED! 

Master of Mixes Margarita Lite uses authentic margarita ingredients for a taste so great, you won't miss the calories!

Master of Mixes Margarita Lite offers a 90% reduction in calories when compared to traditional margarita mix (140 calories per 4 oz. serving vs. 10 calories)

Premium lemon and lime juice is the sole source of the few calories present in Master of mixes Margarita Lite

Now health conscious consumers can balance calories while still enjoying their favorite summer cocktail!

You do have to add your own TEQUILA..which is nice...because if it's been one of those days you can add a little more...  :)

So here is a Friday evening for me......

Bargain Find {1}

This past Memorial Day weekend my sons were in a soccer tourney in Chicago.......


This is my oldest (blue uniform).....

And

This is my youngest (needs a haircut)....

We had a great time despite the rain on Saturday which pushed back some games by 5 hours and some to be postponed until the next day....SO that meant mom got some shopping in.  :)

While at the Woodfield Mall I went into a store called Fans Edge and in their clearance area I found this...



My son is a Chicago Cubs fan and this Big Bobblehead was broken from the base.  I thought with a little super glue and some color touch up....how can I beat it.  This retails for $19.99 and was marked down to $4.95. 

So around the shoe area it needed some permanent black marker......



and then some super glue to attach it back to the base and here he is all back to good......



This is going to make a great birthday present for my soon to be teenager



I just love a bargain...he's back in the box and ready to be wrapped.

Have you found any good bargains lately??  If so please share.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!!
