Despicable Me 3
The day after Christmas, we went to see the movie Sing. The movie was super cute and the kids all enjoyed it; however, I thought it was a little long for a kids movie. BUT, having said that, one of the previews for the movie was Despicable Me 3. Normally I'm either SUPER in to the movies on the trailers or SUPER anti the movies on the trailers. This movie? I'm super in to! I bet I am more excited than Mason, but I can't wait for this movie to come out this summer! I loved the first two (Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2) as well as the Minions movie, so I know we will be taking Mason to see this in theaters!
Blue Apron vs Hello Fresh.
I decided to try out one of these meal delivery services. And by I... I mean, I decided that Seth would try it out (lol). But really, I did consult him before ordering, especially since I was volunteering him for the unknown. I've been getting tons of coupons in the mail for Blue Apron, but read this review from Carolina Charm on her experience with Hello Fresh and Blue Apron and so I was torn. Since the coupon that I most recently got in the mail from Blue Apron doesn't expire until February, I thought I would try Hello Fresh first since she seemed to lean towards liking that one more. Our first box comes next week and I'll for sure report back on how we like it (maybe after I get the other one too so I can compare?). Has anyone ever tried either service? Likes? Dislikes? I thought if nothing else, I would use the discount and try out the service and maybe get some new recipes that we could add into the rotation of the same five meals a week :)
Girl Scout Cookies New Flavor.
I heard on the radio the other day that the Girl Scouts were coming out with some new cookies this year. As a Girl Scout cookie lover, I was intrigued. And then they said the magic word -- S'MORES. And not only one kind, there's TWO. Oh man am I in trouble. I am SUCH a sucker for s'mores!
JulieAnnArt Valentine's Day Cards.

One of my favorite shops on Etsy is JulieAnnArt. Her tagline is "straight forward sentiments" and her cards are seriously SO funny. I would buy one of each for every occasion. I can't remember how I first found her, but I follow her on Instagram as well. I love that her cards are meaningful, yet funny, and lighthearted and can make a serious situation just a little bit lighter. My current favorites are all her Valentine's Day cards! I might or might not have bought Seth one of the above cards for Valentine's Day.
Valentine's for Mason's School.
Speaking of Valentine's Day, I was searching Pinterest the other day for things to do for Mason for his school (you know, TRYING to be proactive and start early this year) and I found tons of cute things but then... I was at Target the other day and saw these Paw Patrol valentines and I was done. I wanted it to be non-candy and the puzzle just seemed so fun and I was SOLD. Sometimes you just have to take the easy way out and give yourself some grace. But then I didn't know what to get his teachers... I'm sure they'll get TONS of candy, but really, who doesn't love these Lindt balls? #iknowido
And that's all for today! Have a great weekend!
