hello erin »

F I V E on friday.

hiya friday. Im so happy your finally here! This weekend is sure to be a festive one- we’re kicking it off with a PJ & pancake party and rounding it out with seeing santa and christmas tree hunting.

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


PROGRESS. I had my one month measurements done at the gym- i was starting to lack motivation because the scale hasn’t budged- but my measurements prove all my hard work might ACTUALLY be paying off- and my trainer might actually know what he’s doing (he keeps telling me he does- i guess i have to start believing him). I still have a long way to go- but in the past month I’ve lost  one inch from my waist, TWO inches from my hips, a whopping 2 cm from my thighs, and i’m down in overall body fat. So I’m patting myself on the back and celebrating with a big ol protein shake (and not a cupcake which is what i WANT to celebrate with).


BAND-AIDS. oh geese do we have a band-aid obsessed kid. She is currently sporting (at least) three. But she doesn’t have any actual boo-boos under them. It probably helps that she has adorable hello kitty, princess, and dinosaur band-aids. Everyone asks lex what happened and she points to her band-aids says “boo-boo” and kisses them. My favorite part? She now sees other people with band-aids and kisses their boo-boos better too. She’s such a healer.



PONCHOS AND BOOT LINERS. I’m always a fan of a good poncho- so when i found some cute ponchos for lex i was overjoyed. They came in the mail and we both did happy dances chanting “poncho poncho poncho!”. Paired with these adorable boot-liners and we’re fully set for winter. These boot liners are life savers- they not only make the boots SUPER warm- but they prevent lex from always kicking them off- and i swear they help her run in them (which might not be a good thing?).



SANTA. i’m so excited to take lex to see santa this weekend!! she’s super duper excited too- we’ve seen the jolly man from afar a few times and she freaks out waving and smiling. We’ll see what happens when its time to sit on his lap- i’m kinda excited either way-and  i’m sure we’ll have a memorable picture! Here is lex last year- we’re going to see the same santa this year at the gumtree in hermosa beach. The photographer in me loves that its outside AND loves lauren pressey for snapping all the pictures!



An adorable little smock arrived in the mail from my sweet friend sara and we definitely put it to good use this week. The gold dots are a fav- but the other side is an adorable navy and gold stripe print that we love just as much. Its the perfect thing to keep lex’s clothes clean- because letsbehonest baking with this kid is anything but clean.

    julie - Good job at the gym! Not gonna lie….I’m crazy jealous. You are a much stronger person that I am because I would totally be celebrating with a cupcake. Plus Lex probably wants to put her cute smock to good use and bake up a lot of yummy treats!

    B - OMG! Need that poncho. I have a pair of welly’s for my girl but they ARE HUGE on her and I cannot for the life of me find a smaller size (she needs a 3/4 not a 4/5), perhaps the boot liners would allow her to actually WALK in the welly’s. Must get those as well! Lex is so cute. Santa MAY be bringing our girl a smock for painting and a frilly little apron for her in the kitchen. Happy Weekend!

    Colleen - You just reminded me that I should be going to the gym! Sometimes I just forget that it should be a regular thing. I’m so proud of you for making such great progress! Lex is so stylish! I love her in those wellies!

    Courtney B - I’m clapping and cheering and doing the happy dance for you (too bad you can’t see me) over the measurements! Yay! All your hard work is (and will continue to) pay off!
