2fer Tuesday.

2 St. Patrick's Day Ideas Worth Sharing:


These Top o' the Morning Pancakes from Betty Crocker.
My kids' heads might explode if I made them for em because hello!?! JUST the marshmallows from the Lucky Charms???

That's pretty much their fave thing of all time.


Pinch Proof Punch tags from My Sister's Suitcase.

This one has Carson's name written ALL over it.
No joke - when he was little and he didn't get his Gatorade {he's never been a big milk drinker and yes, we buy the G2 to cut back on the sugar} we would say 'watch out...he's gone into a Gato-RAGE! 😂

2 Things I LOVE Right Now:

Locals: If you like good mexican food THIS is the place for you. Their chips and salsa + their Flying Saucers are my FAVORITE!!!!

They just opened up THIS WEEK so go over and show them some love.  It's a beautiful restaurant. You order at the counter and then they bring the food to you. Oh and how could I almost forget....their Diet Coke is hands down the best. 

It's located on the NW corner of Higley and Baseline.
And guess what? Tonight it's TACO TUESDAY!!!

THIS song by Andy Grammar.
Love Love LOVE.

This Weekend:

* Friday morning started out with a dr's checkup for Grant.

We met up with Joe afterwards for a quick breakfast HERE.

Nothin like chips and salsa in the morning time, right?😜
{Us Coombs could eat it any time of they day.}
Their breakfast burritos are a MUST. 

* Grant and I swung by my favorite local bakery...

...to pick up some treats for some people before bringing him back to school.

*Grant had a basketball game on Friday night.

He was pretty much on fire and scored a total of NINE points!

Afterwards, we let him pick a place {any place!} that he wanted to go and get dessert.

He chose....

...the local gas station that just opened up right by our house.
I was thinking...Baskin Robbins, Dairy Queen, Sonic....
but the gas station it was!

* Saturday morning we woke up bright and early to go over and help clean our church building.

I'm not gonna lie - - I dreaded waking up EARLY on a Saturday. But I felt OH SO GOOD afterwards about the service we rendered for our beautiful church.

We are SO blessed to have such a wonderful building to go to each week. 

* Chores, chores, chores on Saturday afternoon followed by date night for Joe and I.

So super bummed. We had planned to go and see the movie 'Lion' and when we got there, the show was ALL SOLD OUT. 

Granted, we could've tried another theater but....
it was 50 degrees outside and rainy and I was way too freezing to try it again. {I know, I'm a wimp!}

We settled for dinner at BJs and their dessert mint chocolate chip pazookie almost made up for the fact that we didn't get to see our movie.


* Churchey-church on Sunday.
It was just the spiritual uplift I needed.

In Relief Society, our teacher showed THIS short little video and of course I cried like a baby. 

It was all aboutFaith.
Such a difficult at times thing yet such a NECESSARY action needed in life.

2fer Tuesday {on Friday}.

2 Shows You Need to Be Watching:

Thursday night has quickly become one of our favorite nights for TV watching, mainly because of the following 2 shows. 

Who else looks forward to putting your kids to bed and watching shows with your spouse on the couch for the rest of the night? 


This one is on FX and it's on the 2nd season.
I would highly suggest starting with the 1st.

If you like Zach Galafanakis {we LOVE!} and you like dry comedy - - this one's a must.

Joe and I die laughing!

And this one is on NBC and it's just too funny.
The characters are quirky and we laugh so hard at it each week.

2 Randoms:

I'm such a sucker for articles like this on the internet.
And that fact that REESE'S PIECES was the MOST popular snack the year I was born....it all makes sense now! 
{FYI I am Reese's obsessed!}


McDs really needs to bring back the McWraps.
They were tasty and a lot healthier than some of their other stuff.

Ummmm...how did I miss these?!?!
I was pregnant with Grant that year - - I was ALL ABOUT THE SWEETS!!! Fingers crossed that one day they'll bring em back.

And since we're talking about food...

Drive to your nearest Popeyes and try this out.

My family is pretty much ga-ga for Popeyes.
If you like chicken and waffles -- you will LOVE this!

Plus...it's only 5 bucks so......SCORE!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * 
I promise to have my before and after pics of Operation Wall Re-do in my weekend wrap-up post. 

Today is my day to 'TAKE CHARGE OF MY HOUSE!'
I'm not kidding when I say that EVERY single room right now {upstairs AND downstairs} looks like a bomb has exploded in it. 😳

Wish me luck!
