Friday Five

Woohoo!!  It's finally Friday.  Here are some my favorites from this week.

ONE I'm in full birthday planning mode.  Hallie's birthday party is in a couple of weeks.  The birthday girl wants a frozen party, so that's what she's getting.  I am so excited to have booked Anna and Elsa for a visit during the party.  I can't wait to see her face.  These lovely ladies are from Once Upon a Party NWA.

TWO And with the upcoming birthday means the binky fairy is coming for a visit.  We decided that 3 years old was our cutoff for the binky.  Hallie mainly uses it at night, nap time, and in the car (because driving is annoying enough without a crying, whiny toddler).  I'm praying that this will be an easy transition.  I did cold turkey with Bryson when he turned three.  He surprising did better than I thought he would.  But he is a lot more laid back than his stubborn, strong willed sister.

THREE Bryson and I have started a notebook where we write letters and questions to each other.  One of the questions I recently asked was what is the one thing you couldn't live without.  His response was God.  Melts my heart.  Some times I question my mothering skills and think of all the things I need to improve.  But it's moments like this that let me know I am doing something right.  Oh, and sister got a hold of the notebook and scribbled all over it. 

FOUR I have been wanting some new tennis shoes lately.  And quite frankly, I think I deserve them for all the hard work I've been putting in at the gym.  When Sheaffer posted these shoes, I knew they were "the ones".  I cannot wait to get them!!!

 FIVE I giggled when I saw this.  Yep, this is me.  Well, expect maybe I've owned over 2 million.


  1. I loved all your five moments! Your little girl is just too cute! Funny story about binkies, my mom snipped the tip of mine and told me they "stopped working" when I was too old for them. I think the binky fairy is much cuter! And your little boy with needing God, so precious. So so precious! :) And I cracked up over the bobby pin e-card! SO TRUE! Haha

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend! :)

  2. Loved this list!!!! I completely agree with that bobby pin/ponytail holder statement!! Where do they go??? Your daughter is gonna flip! Those Frozen girls look great!! Thanks for linking!!!

  3. The ecard at the end cracked me up and I can't wait to see pics from the Frozen party! She's going to FLIP!!!
