hello erin »

F I V E on friday.

well hello friday! We’ve had such a busy (and awesome!) week. . . but i’m seriously happy for the weekend! we have a busy weekend planned complete with a few birthday celebrations AND a baby shower. BRING ON THE CAKE!

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


SUCCESSFUL BIKE RIDES. We got a burley last year– but when we tried to take lex for a spin she wasn’t a happy camper. She wasn’t tall enough to be comfy- and her head wasn’t big enough for the helmet and it kept sliding over her eyes. Cue the tears. This past weekend we took the burley for another little spin and it ended up being SUPER successful. This little lady even got to romp and play in the ocean.



Lex and i have made some pretty awesome friends over the last few years. I die at how sweet all these kids are around each other. And how well they interact. And how seeing their moms on a weekly basis keep me sane. I love our impromptu play dates, story time sessions, lunches, and activities. And i hope all these kiddos continue to be best buds. . .



Fun Fact. My husband asked me to “go steady” with him. I swear. Before we became boyfriend and girlfriend we started “going steady”. It was adorable, and charming, and kate spade must have heard our story because she now has a bracelet and necklace that say “lets go steady”. 100% i need this in my life.



Awkward selfies. My friend sara and i have an inside joke about taking awkward selfies in random mirrors in public places. SUPER random. but still SUPER fun.



Wait? its january? We’re running around here in our tank-tops and shorts. NO LIE. As much as i complain that I’m not able to wear my cute winter clothes- i think the warm weather seriously makes park time WAY better. The only issue? I swear lex doesn’t have enough short sleeved shirts to wear. We only bought winter clothes in this size thinking it WAS WINTER.  Also- water-breaks during soccer practice are seriously the cutest.

    Jess - I am so jealous of shorts and tank tops! It seems like a heat wave today because the temps are above 30 in these parts…I can’t wait for spring!

    I am going to check out Burley…I want something for Cam, and it seems like he may be comfy in it this summer!

    Happy Friday, friend!! We have a few birthday parties, too….I love any reason to dress cute, eat cake and drink cocktails 😉

    Courtney B - I can’t get over how nice our winter has been as well!! And when I say nice? I mean high 40’s. Isn’t that depressing? ha ha!
    Play dates are the best! It surprises me with how well Mia already interacts with other kids. LOVE it!
    Good thing Valentines is right around the corner. Your hubs should definitely have a good idea of what to get you 😉
