Five on Friday


Hello, Friday, I’m so glad you are here! It’s been a very long first week back to school. I’m linking up with Darci from The Good Life Blog for Five on Friday.

{1} I’m loving Miss H’s rompers and am getting kind of sad that this will probably be her last year wearing them:( Next year, she’ll more than likely be too big for this style. They are just so cute! I am looking forward to fall outfits and colors, though. So many pretty colors out there for the fall. It’s feeling like fall already in Virginia…the past few mornings, the temps have been in the 50s. Speaking of fall, I need to start searching for outfits for our fall pictures!


{2}I love seeing my husband read to our kids:) Miss H. often goes up to daddy with a book and plops herself down on his lap. We are participating in a 1,000 books by kindergarten program at our local library, so we’ve been trying to keep track of all the books we read. It is apparent that we have some favorites in our household. It tends to go through phases, though. For a while, it was the Gossie books (some of our favorites!). Then it was Brown Bear, Brown Bear and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Now we’re reading lots of Dr. Seuss. I’ve been rotating books from our living room up to Will’s room so that we have more variety. It seems to help!



{3} Now that I’m back at work, I’m starting to wear necklaces more often. Over the summer, I didn’t wear them at all. I tend to forget about putting jewelry on, but I’m trying to make more of an effort now that I’m at school. My mom got me an Origami Owl necklace for my birthday (see below), which is cute. Some of my favorite necklaces are by Lisa Leonard Designs. Below is the “mama” necklace I have of hers. I rarely wear bracelets or earrings, but I do like necklaces:)


{4} I recently got prints of our summer pictures in the mail (mpix is the way to go-you get nice, high quality prints). I swapped out last year’s pics with this year’s summery ones. I love it! I would love to get several nice canvases for a wall display but they are expensive. Any suggestions?

Chocolate chip cookie dough oatmeal (I love all things chocolate chip cookie dough!), sugar dough oatmeal, frappuccino oatmeal!! They sound delicious! This might have to be my next Pinterest project.

  1. Harper looks so cute in her romper! I have a 2 1/2 year old and this is her last year for bubbles too, so sad! Luckily, my other daughter will only be 1 1/2 next year so I get to hold on a bit longer =)

    I love your necklace and have heard great things about Orgami Owl

  2. Canvas on Demand and Easy Canvas often run deals to make them more afforable. I need to get serious about getting some pictures on our walls. We moved 4 months ago and the walls are 70% blank still.
