hello erin »

F I V E on friday.

Ready for the weekend? WE SURE ARE!!

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


Mike’s off boarding the snowy slopes of Utah with the boys this weekend. Which means lex and i have a girls weekend planned. . . i plan on taking full advantage of it. By spoiling lex with ice cream for breakfast and dinner, meeting up with old friends, and visiting a donkey farm on sunday with our favorite santa barbara resident leslie (cupcakes WILL be involved). Bonus will be if i can manage to dress us exactly the same all weekend. . . and if we can fit in a pedi.



we officially have a new fav app. Its the endless ABC app. It helps teach kids their letters by using letter puzzles and monsters. Lex CANT GET ENOUGH of this thing. And she’s creepily good at it already. I’m hoping it’ll help teach her to recognize the stubborn letters she refuses to learn (i’ll cut her a little slack considering she’s not even two).



Lucky me got a root canal monday. Let’s just say it wasn’t the most pleasant experience ever. The only pro was that I’ve had an excuse to smoothie and milkshake it up for a few days. ย Thank goodness for strawberry milkshakes. . . and a husband who runs out to nab em for the “patient”.



I’ve been eating WAY too much of this stuff lately. it really spruces up all fruit. . . or spoons (yes i eat it by the spoonful). Even lex has gotten in on the chocolate fruit action. Apples will never be the same in our house.

Remember monday’s puppy party favor post? well, we’re officially GETTING A PUPPY. that puppy to be exact. . . her name is sasha. She’s a doll of a 4 month old doxie/jack russel terrier mix. and we’re counting down the days to bring her sweet face home. And since neither her or lex are potty trained- i’m killing two birds with one stone and teaching them both to pee in potty- princess sparkle jelly beans all around! Lex took a very active roll in picking out all things sasha related- i think her mind will be blown come monday when the pup actually comes home. let’s hope tucker’s mind is equally as blown. . .

    Jenny - Your weekend plans sound totally awesome!!! Yay for just the girls! Does lex sit still for pedis? I’ve been wanting to try to take Callie but i’m scared she will just want to run around! You got the puppy?! Oh my! I hope she’s as well behaved as adorable! ๐Ÿ™‚

    EHayes - Have to find out if that app is on Kindle. We have a Kindle Fire and I’m having such a hard time finding toddler approved apps. A few are decent, but nothing I’m loving to death yet. She loves baking cakes with Strawberry Shortcake and check ups with Doc McStuffins, but the “preschool” apps are total cheese.

    Good luck with the puppy!!! SO exciting, and Sasha is the perfect name for the dog!
