five on F R I D A Y

Oh fridays. How i LOVE thee. Today lex and i need a LOT of luck- i’m throwing sister into the gym’s childcare. . . for only the second time. And the first time a few weeks ago didn’t go too smoothly. Rumor has it she kept asking for “mama?” and would sniffle and sob a little occasionally. I’m clearly so cool and fun to hang out with. All the more reason she needs “experience” being away from me & my coolness, and in the capable hands of the gym staff.We might both need margaritas in order to survive this friday morning.

Brought to you by the lovely ladies behind: The Good Life. A. Liz Adventures. Carolina Charm. & Hello! Happiness.


We managed to get a few days of cooler temps this week. Which we celebrated with mixing patterns. Lex’s winter uniform is dresses & tights. So don’t be alarmed in we sport this look each and every day. I just wish i could pull off the mix & match patterns as well as an 19 month old can.



Anyone looking for the perfect gold nail color for the fall? Look no further than butter’s ‘marbs’. Last time i had my nails done i got this color and got a billion and one compliments on it. i ran out to buy it because i love it THAT MUCH.



Any restaurant that has a slide and cocktails is a major win in my book. We had the BEST time at dinner tuesday night with some friends. We sat super close to the kids play area so we could keep one eye on the kiddos and the other on our drinks. We LOVE rock n brews. The icing on the cake was that lex slept in the next day until 7:30 (un-like her 6am wake up the last few weeks). So we were all extremely happy- i may never cook dinner again.



NEW YORK. Oh yes, the flight has been booked and the girls are headed out. My mom, sister, future sister-in-law, and i are headed to the great city of New York this December for shopping, site-seeing, and shopping. I’m over the moon to be getting away for a few days where I’m sure we’ll have cray-cray slumber parties at night, and walk till our toes bleed during the day.

Can you guess which ones my sister?



We’re off to my parents this weekend to celebrate my brothers engagement to perhaps the sweetest and cutest girl ive ever met. I cant wait to celebrate them at their engagement party, and all her showers, and again at their wedding (which they havent even THOUGHT about planning). They’re seriously the cutest couple, and we cant wait to welcome michelle into the family!

    Jenny - I usually leave Callie at the gym daycare 2-3 times a week (we are totally off any routine after my mom being here). when I started the key was to go about the same time. it was consistent for her, some of the same kids were there and the same staff. After about 2 weeks she was great and sometimes when I pick her up she looks at me like “mom I’m playing!” it’s good for her and you so the rough spots will be worth it in the long run!!

    Have so much fun in NYC. One of my favorite memories is a trip I took with my mom for my birthday (Dec 10) and all of the holiday spirit that the city carried!!!
