Five on Friday

I’m linking up with Darci over at The Good Life Blog for Five on Friday and Lauren at Lauren Elizabeth for H54F

1. I have totally been in a non-gmo kick lately.  I am slowly changing what we eat and doing lots of research. I figured I’d change Tinky’s snacks first and move from there.  It’s been well received. GMOs freak me out… I know we won’t be able to be non-gmo all the time but I’m going try and make the best decisions for my family that I can.

We love Annie's!

2. I took the sippy cup away at night again… last week. It was gone and then we had Ayla and 6 months later… Here we are. I know it’s bad for her to have it as she falls asleep but after I had T2 I felt guilty. She has gotten away with a lot because of my guilt and it’s time to change that. Having a preemie was tough and a 2 year old doesn’t understand. It’s going pretty good.

3. We are hot and heavy on the potty training. It’s tough but we will get there. I’ll be posting all about it sometime soon.

4. I’m expecting a couple of subscription boxes… I’m super excited about them. I will be receiving a Bluum box and a KlutchBox. Bluum box is for children with a special gift for Mom and KlutchBox sends items for a healthy and active lifestyle. I got great deals on both of them which makes it even more thrilling! I’ll post about them when they come! If you want to try a Bluum box here is my referral link:

For KlutchBox:


5. Shaun and I were reminiscing about our wedding day over this past weekend. We talked about memorable moments, what we don’t really remember and what we remember because of the pictures we have. It was a nice time remembering and talking about our special day. Sometimes you get so caught up in life you forget the important stuff.

Five on Friday

I’m linking up with Darci over at The Good Life Blog for Five on Friday and Lauren at Lauren Elizabeth for H54F


1. My two year old is on a roll this week… She fell and split her chin on Sunday, wrote on our TV with crayon,  I found her sitting on top of play kitchen,  she poured her milk into the gas tank of her car and got into my makeup for like the 20th time. Crazy stuff! Is this normal 2 year old behavior? I have nothing to compare it to and so I’m going to keep telling myself it is! She keeps me on my toes! Luckily, she is my favorite crazy two year old ever!

2. T2 is getting so big… as our last baby I just want it to slow down. I know they won’t be my babies forever but, throw me a bone! She is such a happy baby and a joy to be around. I have the most amazing and beautiful daughters… God has truly blessed me.

Toes are fun!

3. I’m done pickling for the season 24 jars of pickles…


A couple missing here 😉

4. I really want to get a bento box… I’ve been eyeing this one.

5. Soccer season is starting soon… It’s a love/hate relationship with me. My hubby refs high school and college and is gone a lot during the season… on the up side extra money to go shopping and he does look sexy in those short referee shorts!

Five on Friday!

1. I had a great time this past weekend meeting up the ladies to Celebrate Jenny’s birthday! It’s nice get out with friends and not have your kids hanging all over you. We all need some adult time every once in a while and it was wonderful.

2. I started a part-time job and I am loving it. I haven’t worked since right before I had Ayla. It’s been nice to actually shower and wear nice clothes again. It’s easy to get into a habit of being just a Mom. Somedays I am just to busy to worry about myself and having a job makes me take time to look and smell good! When you look good you feel good!

Selfie... sometimes I dust off my make-up!


3. I’m going out of town for a couple of days for training… in Nashville. I’m excited and nervous. Excited to train, get out of town and to sleep by myself! Nervous to leave my girls. I will miss them so much!

4. My babies are just getting so big and it’s just sad. I want them to grow as they should but it seems like it goes so fast. I just want it all to slow down.


5. It’s breastfeeding month… so in honor of that:

Let’s normalize breastfeeding!

Five on Friday Birthday Edition!

I’m linking up with Darci over at The Good Life Blog for Five on Friday and Lauren at Lauren Elizabeth for H54F…My birthday Edition!

1. Today is my 28th birthday. Saying that sounds weird to me.  I’ll be thirty in two years and that just seems unreal! So far life has been pretty good to me.

2. This will be the first year in a long time that I’m not having a summer party! My brother’s birthday is the 28th and we usually have a party together… not this year! He moved to Texas with my oldest brother and I am not organized enough yet with 2 young ones. We usually…

3. Have an adult pinata at our summer party. It’s always a big hit. We put lots of fun things in it and it’s fun to act like a kid and see who busts it open! Everyone makes a mad dash to pick up all the goodies…. as adults we might actually be worse than the kids.


The usual suspects:
Mini bottles of liquor
Slim jims
Some sort of candy
Plastic shot glasses
Packets of Tylenol (or other pain reliever)
Mini cigars

In the past, before kids, we put some very adult items in it like condoms and little lubes…. we’re just not that cool anymore!

I have also done a 30 birthday one for my oldest brother and put growing old items in with the usual. I added tuck pads and antacids.

4. I am going out this weekend. This will be my first night away from T2. We are going to go out to dance and have a few drinks and then will end up back at my house for more socializing. I’m pretty excited! My Mom is taking both girls overnight. She’s awesome!

5. I’m getting new dishes for my birthday! I’m getting Corelle. They are inexpensive and very durable. I bought more expensive ones when first got married and they are chipped and not looking so good. Growing up we always had Corelle and they didn’t break easily and that is what I need with my little ones! Getting household things for your birthday definitely means your an adult!
