hello erin »

F I V E on friday.

happy friday everyone! this week seriously FLEW by. I feel like it was our usual routine- but throw in a few extra play dates, a mom’s night out for yours truly, getting new baseboards through the house (we’re officially classier now), and a trip to the dentist that resulted in me learning i need a root canal (i know. you’re all SO jealous). . . the days passed SO quickly. SO excited for this weekend. we have a rockin’ 2nd birthday party to hit for one of lex’s besties, and my sister has promised to grace us with her presence. . . HAPPY WEEKEND!

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


goodbyn. Now that lex is getting bigger- so is her appetite- and the teeny tiny snack containers i used to carry around aren’t cutting it anymore. I always have like 3 little cubes floating around (and they’re glass. so my poor purse gets HEAVY). Enter goodbyn.Β I LOVE these snack containers. I love how they slide right into my purse- how they’re the perfect size for snacks. and the bright fun colors. and that they’re lightweight.



SHEEC socks.Β  Does anyone else look like a giant nerd at the gym because their socks show just a teeny tiny bit over their shoes? because i sure as heck did. And felt like everyone was staring at my neon-usually-non-matched socks. Until i found these bad boys. i LOVE THEM. They cover just enough so they dont slip down, have a non-slip pad on the heel, and dont show in my runners. Now i’m left wondering why i hadnt heard of these before!



Dile. Dile is our newest obsession. A hard plastic crocodile that lex HAD TO HAVE at the toy store this week. And since then he’s slept in her bed, gone to the park, played soccer, went to dance class, helps her eat every meal, and is seriously attached to this kids hand. The best part- since he’s plastic he goes really well in the bath. . . even if it means hes not so snuggly in bed.

And check out this kid in dance class. WHAT A HAM.



Lex’s transition to her big girl bed has gone REALLY well. It hasn’t felt any different- until a few weeks ago. Someone stands at the door to her room every morning at FIVE AM saying “mommy. . . cuddle. cuddle mommy. please?”. Who am i to resist the powers of the cuddle? the past few mornings by pulling her into bed she’s slept until 6:45. Which is WAY better than a 5am wake up. And i have a feeling she won’t always want mommy cuddles. . . so i’m definitely taking advantage now.



remember our valentines day fun with a super cute group of bloggers? WELL we have something insanely fun up our sleeves for St Patricks day. The best part? Everyone can join in the fun. . . so stay tuned for all the deets.

    chrissy - Have I told you how jealous I am that you have a dance school near you that will take a child under 2? I cannot find anyplace near me that will take them under 3! Elin loves ballet and I know she wants to go to a class. Those snack containers sound interesting,too!

    Courtney P - Too much cuteness for Friday! I’m so happy the big girl bed transition is going well – that can be a huge change! And I love the dance pictures! So, so much personality for such a little cutie {Wonder where she gets that from?} πŸ˜‰ Happy weekend!

    Colleen - You always find the best new stuff! I love those snack containers! Mommy guilt gets me every time there is a chance for a cuddle but I’m already preoccupied… I usually drop what I’m doing for that sweet hug or cuddle too, even if it’s sleeping πŸ™‚

    Jess T. - Love those snack containers! I’ve been on the lookout for a new option and I think those are it! I hope our big girl bed transition goes as smoothly as yours! I’m normally super optimistic but for some reason I have the feeling she’s going to give us heck! Oh, and I can’t wait to hear the deets about the St. Patty’s project!

    Sara McCarty - I cannot get over how adorable she is. From the snuggles to the dance moves. Love her. And I am so ordering those socks right now.

    Kristin - The dance photos are too much for me to handle! I am counting the SECONDS until I can sign Kenley up {hi, crazy dance mom in the making}! And Dile is quite the lucky crocodile. Also, I NEED those snack containers.

    Courtney B - You always have the best stuff to share on Fridays!! And those socks! I need because I’m the biggest nerd of all at the gym! I even have the expensive “running” socks that still poke out the top of my shoes!
    Lex is ADORABLE!
    I need to get my thinking cap on for your fun St Patty’s idea! I want to join!
