5 on Friday!

SO happy today is Friday! I've totally sucked at blogging this week, but I always look forward to this link-up. :) I am super pumped for a weekend trip to my parents' myself! *squeal* I debated on whether taking the boys, but I decided I wanted a little "me time." I wanted the option to sit around in my underwear, eat ice cream, and watch Little House on the Prairie with my sister all day long. True Story. It's bound to happen at some point this weekend. And yes, I'm fully aware of the nerd level of that statement and I'm okay with it. ;) Anyway, I'm super excited to relax and help my sis get her classroom {she teaches high school English} organized and ready to go for the first day of school on Monday morning!

Here are my fave five of the week! 


Next time it rains, go jump in puddles with your child(ren). It has been my favorite memory, hands down that we have made this summer. Such a simple thing to do, but it's just one of those feel good moments that makes you feel like a kid again. :)


A friend of mine posted this from a blog on her fb page this week, and I immediately had to share it myself. It was such a great read and it is always comforting to read other women's thoughts that I am also thinking. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

So I know it's a bit early for Halloween crafts, BUT when Dawson asked me if we could make a skeleton this week I couldn't say no. I found this cute little Q-tip skeleton craft and thought I would share in case someone is as Fall/Halloween obsessed I am. I drew in with pen where the Q-tips needed to go which was a great guideline for Daws when gluing. He was able to make the eyes and nose on the face himself and he did all the gluing and placing of the Q-tips. We love crafting together. Especially holiday crafts! :) Sidenote: Disregard the wet glue. It looks jank but that's when I took the picture, and let's face it...I'm too lazy to go re-take another. :)


DIY Polka-dot Garland
How cute (and easy) does this look?!


I'm confessing that I'm going to watch this and I don't care who knows it. Surely I'm not the only 33-year-old out there who is addicted to Teen Mom?!

Until next Friday...
Hope everyone enjoys their weekend!


  1. I love when I (kind of) make the top 5 :).

  2. I am so excited about Being husband is already making fun of me. Love the polka dot garland!

    1. Oh, mine is too...but I can't help it! Anything with a "Teen_____" sign me up to watch! ;) Thanks, I thought the garland looked easy enough to make :) Thanks for stopping by!


Don't be shy, I love to read your comments! :)
