Five on Friday

I'm back for another Five on Friday!  I am loving this fun little link up right now!  
Thanks to all the wonderful hosts, especially Natasha at Hello! Happiness.

I recently purchased the book, Tails, for Liam as one of his birthday gifts!  The recommendation came from the girl in the red shoes, and it has quickly become a favorite of little L's.  It is a fun read with so many different things to touch & feel!

I won a giveaway this week, whoo hoo!  I never win anything, so I was pretty pumped about this to say the least!  The item was a Little Mr. bow tie, which arrived in the mail yesterday!  It will make Liam look just that much dapper!  If I love it, I might just end up purchasing a couple for the holiday season.  Nothing says festive like a cute little bow tie!  It would also be an adorable baby gift for anyone having a boy.

 While I'm still enjoying the rest of Summer, I am getting a little excited for Fall clothes!  After picking lots of cute items at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I'm having a hard time waiting to wear all the new things.  My current fashion obsession is elbow patches!    Lately, they seem to be everywhere on little boy's clothing, yay!  Now if I could only find a few sweaters for me that had some heart shaped elbow patches...  I picked up this Tucker & Tate shirt for Liam that is just screaming for a trip to the pumpkin patch!

 Coconut.  One words says it all...  I have a huge thing for coconut.  I love all things coconut scented or flavored.  I was on the coconut oil train LONG before it became a staple of many people's kitchens.  But recently, I've taken my passion for coconut to a new level...  I've always noticed the huge bag of dried coconut at Costco but was hesitant to buy it (no idea why)!  And then one day, a cute little Costco sample lady convinced me to give it a try and I have NEVER looked back!  I buy a bag every time I go and usually eat it within a couple days.  This stuff is better than candy and the texture is so interesting it keeps you coming back for more! 

I've been baking quite a bit lately (my sweet tooth has been in full force and you better bet many of these items contain some coconut) but almost everything I've made has "flopped" once it comes out of the oven to cool, grr!  I was beginning to wonder what happened to my cooking skills until I realized that the problem is the high altitude of Salt Lake City!  I am just not used to cooking here yet!  Phew, glad it wasn't me!  ;-)  So any tips on baking in high altitude places would be much appreciated!

Little tid bit of the day: this was my 100th post!
TGIF everyone!
