Friday fun: J. Crew Factory, The Lorax and paper airplanes

You may hear the signature sound of Truffula Valley’s own Humming-Fish from miles away in “Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax”, a 3D-CG adventure from the creators of “Despicable Me” and the imagination of Dr. Seuss./ Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment

I just realized that I have not one thing ready for today, so I’m whipping up a little something just because. I actually had a 3rd thing to include above after The Lorax, but it slipped my tired mind. It’s been a long and wierd kind of week and I am hap, happ, happy that it’s Friday, even though it took way too long to get here. We were supposed to have photos for our house’s listing done this week, but instead, I decided that what we really needed new realtor and, luckily, managed to find a good one very quickly. So far she’s not only not doing the things that drove me nuts about the last one, she’s far exceeding my expectations and giving me things I didn’t even know I needed. Oh happy day. My Friday fun will be flying paper airplanes over & over & over (throw, type, throw, type), leaning up all of the mashed bits of food that my 2 year old feels compled to grind into my floors and apparently interviewing new mommies because my 3 year old wants to hire a new one. This weekend I will be making a hopefully pretty mini coffee table out of 2 pieced together green Lack side tables from Ikea (or maybe 4, can’t decide) and working out a big girl bed solution for Mademoiselle. Maybe if I can pay her off with the bed, she’ll stop torturing me with the tiny bits of ground cheerios and cheese (YUCK) that I need to scrub out of the floor before our new picture day.

If you’re in a shopping mood, today only J. Crew Factory is having an additional 30% off sale items with the MUSTSHOP code (see site for details). I’m not really shopping for clothes right now (though I really do want a pair of bright green skinny jeans I think…), but if I were it might be at J. Crew Factory. I really hadn’t looked at it much at all since they started those online weekends, but today there was a very cute pair of pants in the email I received about the Sale Sale, so I thought why not waste 5 minutes I don’t have and take a look. Very cute. I love that Ruffled Gamine Jacket above. Didn’t get to the sale stuff, but it’s probably worth checking it out. I’ve pinned a few more of my selections on my Pinterest Board.

The Lorax is now playing. We are supposed to be sending our 6 & 4 year olds for a review. They are very excited and we hope to actually get there, have them actually give their opinions & post it this week.
