hello erin »

F I V E.

this week i. . . 

saw the way way back. and it was AWESOME. i cant remember the last time we rented a movie (because we’re lame, and its not summer so our DVR is actually alive and functioning).

had a moms night out to see divergant. . . a movie best seen without toddler and husband and instead seen with someone who has actually read the books. the movie was exceptionally good- my hats off to the casting director… And to the person who decided to omit the whole “butter knife incident”.

got my jean vest in the mail- and while my super sweet adoring husband thinks it looks like something i found at the salvation army dumpster in the 80’s- i think i just might keep it to prove him wrong. but if someone calls me “blossom” in his presence the jig’s up.


Sang “do you wanna build a snowman” acapella no less than 5,456 times- because apparently lex is a glutton for punishment. trust me, my voice just doesn’t compare to anna’s. And if you ask lex what happens in frozen she mutters something along the lines of “ana hit head, olaf, mean snowman. mommy build snowman?”. . . yup kid,  #nailedit

asked lex a set of questions. . . and loved her answers. if you ever wondered what exactly it is mike and i do all day- just ask our toddler.
name- lexandira
favorite color?- purple
who’s your bestie?- Aly
who’s your boyfriend?- uncle shaun
favorite book?- yucky book
favorite animal?- kitty and mean kitty
favorite activity?- cake pops
what does dad do all day?- take tucker to play
what does mom do all day?- go to gym
what do you want to be when you grow up?- ride horses and lasso

i’d like to state for the record i love having friends who are as passionate as i am about adding to lex’s swimsuit collection.



boom. you’ve been five’d.

    Jenny - I love the star swimsuit and apparently Callie does because she kept saying “star” and pointing to Lex 🙂 Happy Friday! And I love that list of questions totally going to do something like that with Callie! 🙂

    julie - Okay song captain, I bet your singing isn’t too bad…and we totally sing “do you wanna make a smoothie?” in our house to that song! And love lex’s answers to those questions so much…she nailed it! And her mermaid suit! SO cute!

    Sara - Oh Lex, I’m afraid Uncle Shaun is taken… I’ll have a stern talking to him for you though!

    chrissy - Aww, Love Lex’s suit! Looks too cute! Also, I feel you on singing Frozen songs! Sadly, they are starting to run through my head all the time now!

    Elizabeth - I love Lex’s answers to your questions! It’s the cutest thing to hear what kids think adults do all day. We just bought the “yucky” book (if I’m thinking of the right one) so hopefully Mason likes it as much as Lex!

    karra - A mermaid suit?!? I DIE. I’m dyinggggg to see Divergent. Sadly, it prob won’t happen until it’s on DVD.

    Courtney - Yeah, total good move on skipping the ol butter knife. So, are you as enamored with Four as I am? Cuz, oh Lord. I almost embarrassed myself and audibly shouted YES YES YES when he was all, “want to see my tattoo?”

    Courtney B - I’m rereading Divergent now (need to see it!) and I’m so glad you said they left out the butter knife scene! That would be sick to the nast!
    Lex’s swimsuits kill me! She really has the cutest ones EVER!
