Five on Friday - Feb 10

(one) Date night is coming up! Excited to try a new restaurant tomorrow evening while my mom has granddaughter time.

(two) After finishing up Finding Carter on Hulu, I'm now back to watching Brothers and Sisters on Hulu. Finding Carter was really good and I'm bummed they cancelled it! Brothers and Sisters has a Parenthood feel without the crying every.single.episode. But that's why we have This Is Us. Thoughts on how Jack died? I can't wait to find out but I just know they are going to drag it on as long as they can!

(three)So I didn't post a menu this week. I just picked up some chuck roast, cubed steak, chicken tenders, ground beef and a couple of frozen pizzas. I will just season them, cook in the crock pot or bake them and be done. I didn't have the energy to menu plan this time

(four) 3K and Kindergarten registration is coming up fast! I can't believe M will be in "big school"! Having 2 kids in 2 different schools will be an adjustment but we will quickly figure it out!

(five) Ever heard of Dollar Shave Club? We've been using them for over a year now and we both love it! Your first shipment comes with a handle and 4 cartridges. After that, there are 4 cartridges in a pack and each one has 6 steel blades on it. Shipping is free and you can actually put your order on hold if you get too many. We both have handles and use the same 4 pack of blades and they usually last a month! Alan also uses their Post Shave Cream and their Bold Hair Gel. He loves both and they are super affordable and last forever. Sign up HERE via my referal link.

Five on Friday - Feb 3

..more like 3 on Friday. I always feel like I have a million things to catch up on and then when I go to type it out, I forget.

(one) My planner has been a huge help with getting me less frazzled! I have been able to delegate errands and things I have been putting off to certain days. I even carry it in the store with me because I've been writing grocery needs in it on certain days. If you have way too much to do, get a planner. You'll thank me later.

(two) We've started watching Highway Thru Hell on Netflix. It's quite stressful to watch but very interesting!

 Highway Thru Hell is a Canadian reality TV show that follows the operations of Jamie Davis Motor Trucking, a heavy vehicle rescue and recovery towing company based in Hope, British Columbia. The show focuses on the hardships of operating along the highways of the BC Interior, especially the Coquihalla Highway (Coq).

(three) ..Speaking of Canada, excited about mine and Alan's 4 day trip coming up in a couple of months. The kiddos will stay behind, go to school and have some grandparent time.  I've never been to Canada before but have always wanted to go. I am not, however, looking forward to the plane ride!
