Friday Favorites + $100 Target Giftcard Giveaway!

Happy Friday!!!
Today I'm linking up with Friday Favorites!

Hosted by: Andrea, Erika & Narci

 In honor of Spring Break being 7 days away...I have 7 favorites I want to share with you today!

{ONE}
Since Easter is just one week away, let's talk about my favorite Easter Candy:

I keep these in the fridge. Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs cold are the BEST.
Know what isn't my favorite? Cadbury Eggs. I'm sorry. I just don't like them. I think they are nasty. I've had 1 bite of one in my entire life and couldn't even finish it because it was gross.
 #TeamReesesEggsForever

Celebrating Holidays is my FAVORITE!
Easter is a week from Sunday, so here are some fun activities that you can do with your kids this week to get you in the Easter Spirit! Many of these will help you focus on the true meaning of Easter....that Jesus died on the cross for all of us and rose again 3 days later.  Some of the other activities are just for fun!

Planting Jelly Beans
We do this on Good Friday & have the lollipops appear on Easter Sunday representing that God has taken the old and given us new life. 
 You can read Luke Chapter 18 in the Bible with this activity.
 Talk about how Jesus’s body was laid in the tomb then on the 3rd day was raised from the dead and lived again.

 Bunny Prints
 On our front walkway made with flour on Easter Morning:
Bunny Trail 
(Marshmallows leading them to their Easter Baskets)
 
Empty Tomb Easter Cookies with Scripture 
(Recipe & Instructions HERE
Resurrection Rolls:
(Recipe HERE)

Easter Egg Coupons:
Instead of filing eggs with candy, you can add these coupons to some of your kids eggs!
My girls LOVE getting these in their eggs!

Download them HERE if you haven't already!
These are a HIT at Easter. My girls can't wait to find the coupon eggs!

 Tie Dyed Easter Eggs:
Use silk ties to dye eggs! So fun. 
{Instructions HERE}
You can see our tie-dyed eggs from 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014
The girls and I are working on our 2015 tie dyed eggs next week. Can't wait!

Happy Easter to one of my favorite Peeps Printable:

Get the printable {HERE}

You've been Egged Printable:
In case you missed my post yesterday, I posted a "You've Been Egged" Printable.
We have had so much fun "egging" our friends this week!

Download it {HERE}

{THREE}
Crying kids with Santa & the Easter Bunny are my favorite.
We are going to see the Easter Bunny next week.
Hoping I get a repeat of last year:


{FOUR}
Stitch Fix is my Favorite! 
My Fix is supposed to arrive this afternoon. I can't wait!
It's like Christmas morning every month. This is my 11th month getting a Stitch Fix (you don't have to do them every month, but I love getting them, so I chose the monthly option. :)
You don't have to do it every month, you can customize it to how you want it...every other month, every 2 months, every 3 months, etc.

When you sign up for Stitch Fix, you link your Pinterest Boards to them so that know what styles you like. If you don't have Pinterest, that's okay because they also have a style questionaire for you to fill out & they have collages of outfits and you rate them on how you like them.
Each Fix comes with 5 different items & it comes with a prepaid mailing envelope, so you can easily return the items you don't want.
You aren't obligated to keep any of it! I have kept at least 1 item each time, sometimes I keep 2 or 3.
It's fun!
Click {HERE} to get started!

{FIVE}
As if you didn't know, Rodan + Fields is my favorite skin care...especially the eye cream!
I started using the eye cream right after Luke was born and WOW, it got rid of the bags under my eyes that I had from lack of sleep with a newborn. 

Our  Multi-Function Eye Cream combines powerful peptides to minimize the appearance of crow’s-feet, helps reduce the appearance of both puffiness and dark under eye circles while special optical diffusers noticeably brighten the eye area.
Ophthalmologist tested, this formula is ideal for maintaining the delicate skin around the eyes.  

This brave consultant only used the eye cream on one eye for 3 weeks!
It's less puffy & she doesn't have bags under that eye!

I will be placing a BULK order of our amazing eye cream NEXT Wednesday!
For my bulk order, you can get it with my discount and it will only cost you $54 and I will cover your tax & shipping!
One jar lasts me at least 4-5 months.
Let me know if you want to order one! Leave a comment with your email or email me: melissa_larson17@yahoo.com

My March Madness deal is also going on, if you want to become a preferred customer.
You get $20 cash back, 17% off your order and FREE Shipping!
(If you did this deal, you could get the eye cream for even less than my bulk order discount!)
I would LOVE to help you with your skin care needs!
You can also take this quick 6 question survey to find out what products are best for your skin {HERE}

 Bingo is my favorite!
For the past year, some of my friends and I have gone to play Bingo at the Country Club for their Bingo night. They have it once a month and for the past year we have been going. We haven't made it to all of them, but when we do, it is a riot!!!
Usually there are between 3 - 6 of us. But this month, there were 10 of us!!! Don, the announcer wanted a picture with us this month to put in the monthly newsletter. We are the youngest ones by about 30 years....I love Bingo with the old people :)
In the past year, none of us have ever won and we haven't even been at a table where someone has won. But, this month 5 out of the 10 of us WON games!!!!
So much fun!! I won a Champange Brunch for 2.

We were quite the scene at Bingo since 5 of us won.
This is what our table looked like at the end of the night.

Bingo cards & empty wine bottles. LOVE it.
