What do dolls, museums, AdSense, date night, and May have in common? Five on Friday 5.2.14

What do dolls, museums, AdSense, date night, and May have in common?  Not much, except that I'm linking up with DarciChristinaApril, and Natasha for Five on Friday!



1.  I was contacted to see if I could share this information with my readers...so mark your calendars!  On May 13th, American Girl Place in NYC will close its doors for Children's Cancer and Blood Foundation (CCBF) supporters to enjoy an exclusive evening of family fun benefiting kids with cancer.  The evening will feature a variety of fun activities including the New Girl of the Year Scavenger Hunt, a special hairdo at the Doll Hair Salon, and a Creativi-tee Doll Tee.  Attendees will also have the chance to enter a raffle to win a variety of popular American Girl Dolls!  100% of proceeds go to CCBF.  Find out more and get your tickets here!

2.  My mom and I took Luke to The New Children's Museum in West Hartford, CT today!  He was overwhelmed with happiness!  He had so much fun.  If you're in the Hartford, CT area, use this Groupon and check it out!

                      
                  

3.  I'm having trouble with my AdSense on Blogger.  I had used it with no problem when I first started blogging.  Then I explored a little with ShareASale and a few others.  I wanted to go back to AdSense and now the ads are not showing up.  I did some troubleshooting with no luck.  Has this happened to you?  What are your favorite affiliate blogger sites?

4.  We're having date night on Saturday!  The babysitter is booked and now we just need a dinner reservation.  We do this very infrequently and I'm excited!  To eat while sitting, to carry only a small purse, and to take our time.  I love Luke and we will definitely miss him (and probably talk about him the whole time) but its important to continue dating even when married with kiddos.

5.  I can't believe it's May.  We have a lot to look forward to this summer!  John Paul will be home with Luke and I want to make a long list of things we can do this summer.  Free things, not free things, trips, museums, aquariums, everything!  If you're in the New England area, what do you recommend for a will-be-17-month-old for the summer?

  2. The hubby and I haven't had a planned out date night in a loooong time... And we're about to have our first kiddo. So maybe we should take advantage of these last few months that we have before it gets even more difficult to go out! Y'all better enjoy that date night. ;)

    I found you through the link up! I hope you have a great weekend!

    1. Yes, I'd highly recommend it! The baby might sleep through dinner dates the first few months but go now just in case! Happy weekend to you too! Thanks for stopping by,
