Friday Faves

Happy Friday!!! We made it through a full week after Thanksgiving! And finally, we've gotten some sunshine in these parts after 4 straight days of cloudy and rainy weather. Bring on the sun!
Here are some of my faves from the week:

{1} MG's birthday
We celebrated MG's birthday on Wednesday by going out to dinner at one of the great american restaurants where he got the jambalaya pasta (a fave of his) and I got the hickory smoked salmon which was seriously the most mouth watering salmon I've had in forever!
MG also enjoyed the bigger part of his gift--the Man Crate (thanks to Lynn for the awesome idea!) He was in awe that he actually had to use a hammer and a crowbar to get it open, and really loved the gifts inside that were all centered around the grill. I heard him on the phone with his bro-in-law raving about it, so I knew I did good.
We're going out in DC tonight for a double date with one of our favorite couples, to celebrate some more.

{2} Massages
MG and I both have a massage scheduled for this weekend and I. Can't. Wait. It's almost like my shoulders and back knew we had this scheduled because they've been killing this week.
Is MG getting spoiled this birthday, or what?? :)

{3} Favorite Funny Video
I saw this on someone's facebook yesterday and it made me laugh watching the kid's faces as they tried good versus bad jelly beans (especially the boy's at the end)--BeanBoozled Challenge

{4} Favorite Discount Site
Do you guys use EBates? If not, you should sign up! I've gotten a bunch of money back from buying holiday gifts that I would have bought otherwise. The cash back deals this week have been impressive (up to 10% cash back) at places like Old Navy, Under Armour, Macy's, Amazon, Living Social, etc. One place even had 40% cash back which is basically paying you to shop. 
If you haven't signed up yet, sign up here and start getting money back just for doing your regular shopping!

When he asks you if this is the last thing coming in the mail:

When your dog finally makes it through an entire night and day without being sick (or waking you up in the middle of the night to go outside and be sick):

Happy Friday, loves! I hope your day is quick and your weekend is fab!

  3. OMG and the wife award goes to.... YOU!!!! Wow, what an awesome idea! Would you mind sharing how to do that please? I want to do this for my husband either for Christmas this year, or his birthday in early January. That is SO COOL! The Salmon looks to die for! Enjoy your massages and your weekend! :)

  24. Yay Man Crate!! yay massage and yay no more sick puppy! I love Ebates, my problem is forgetting to go through it when I buy online.

  25. That Man Crate idea is so adorbs!!! I had never heard of that, thanks for sharing! I am currently looking at Man Crates for possible gifts for my boyfriend. You should think about a subscription to Birchbox Man for Christmas - that has been my bf's first secret gift so far! Cant wait for him to get it!

  26. Ebates is how I try and justify my overshopping to my husband during the holidays-haha. Have a great weekend :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ebates is definitely worth using for anyone who shops online. I get so pissed at myself when I make a purchase and forget to use it, especially a big purchase. Enjoy the bday celerbations this weekend and those massages. So jell!

  28. It cracks me up when people distrust ebates. Like hello, no, there is no catch.

    You remind me, I'm due for a massage!

    ReplyDelete
  29. YES to that sale meme! Haha. I really need to stop buying things. Yay for massages! Have a great weekend. :)

  30. My credit card is still complaining from the work that I made it do over Black Friday, so I identify totally with that cute toddler. Time to learn some self-control over the next few days!
