5 on Friday

I know I complained about how February dragged on, but March needs to slow the heck down. I can't believe the month is almost half over already.

Monday and Tuesday were gorgeous with temps in the 80's. After making the kids stay inside Monday night since I'm still getting over this awful cold/cough/most annoying sickness ever/ I put on my girl panties Tuesday to enjoy the fluke, beautiful weather. Ben enjoyed some Orange Leaf and soccer outside, while Jack and I chilled on a blanket and watched. Both boys were in heaven.
And in true Missouri fashion, it snowed yesterday morning.

Natalie over at Designer Bags and Dirty Diapers posted this adorable bathing suit. I don't know how I feel about paying $150 for a suit, but it might just be worth it. That bow!

And speaking out bathing suits... I'm sure you all have heard about the Target photoshopping disaster. If not, take a look.

This E! article is by far my favorite commentary about the whole debacle. My favorite quotes from the author include:
"The last question you should be asking yourself when you're cruising Target's website and looking at pictures of the models showcasing the clothes is: "Where is her vagina?"
"Girl, there are spikes coming out of your skin! Get that checked out. What's the prognosis for jagged edges popping out of your body?"

A few weeks ago I posted about a scarf I ordered off Groop Dealz. Well it finally came, and although I wish it was a little thicker and chunkier, I love the color and the fact that it's an infinity scarf.

I also tried on this scarf my friend Julie got me. I love the colors and it just screams SPRING! (Picture me saying that in my best Oprah voice SPA-RI-IINNNGGGG)

Getting all the salt, grime, and snow of the car at the car wash feels awesome. Ben insisted it would be even more awesome with a slush. You know what's not awesome? The person in front of us who thought it was a good idea to go through the wash with a huge piece of equipment in his truck bed causing the line of 20 cars behind him to back up even more when it got tangled in the machine.

Tonight I am headed to a Trivia night for a local no kill animal shelter. Last year's was a blast even though I think we came in 2nd to last. I'm looking forward to having a few cocktails, trying not to adopt one of the ADORABLE puppies that are sure to be there, and sharing my knowledge of useless crap.

Happy Friday!
