Five on Friday

Yay, it's Friday!  That means that once again I'm joining the link-up hosted by some lovey ladies, my favorites of which are Natasha & Darci.  Here's a little look into some of my thoughts this week:

I got a new iphone this week (no, I don't have the patience to wait 'til Fall for a newer model) which means I also got a new iphone case!  The people at Verizon were hounding me to buy a case/cover from them, but let's be honest they have about zero options!  After a little Pinterest searching, I decided on this little gem, and I am loving it!  It's simple with just a little hint of Christmas that you can enjoy all year long!

I've been in quite the baking mood lately, especially for cookies!  I have discovered the awesomeness that is coconut oil in cookies!  What isn't coconut oil good in?!  However, I have an issue with cookie batter that needs to chill overnight...  First of all, "Ain't nobody got time for that!"  Secondly, nobody bakes cookies in the morning, so that means there will be cookie dough in the fridge for an entire day!  So every time I open the fridge, I'm going to eat cookie dough.  Every.  Single.  Time.   I'll be honest...  sometimes I never get around to actually baking the cookies, I just eat the dough for a few days!  This week I made peanut butter cookies; I plan on baking them tonight or tomorrow....we shall see. 

Fair season is upon us!  I am ready for some elephant ears & a ferris wheel ride!  The fair is the unofficial kick off for Fall in my book, although I won't be bringing out the Fall decor until September!  Besides, it's still in the 90s here every day, so it completely feels like summer.  I want to find a fair with a petting zoo & carousel for Liam.  The boy is loving the carousel at the zoo these days; the second he sees it he starts pointing like crazy and can barely wait for me to buy us a ticket!  I need to start doing some research now and see what fairs are going on in the area, since this will be our first Fall in Utah!

 Back to School shopping is in full force every where I look these days.  And while Liam won't be walking off to school this year (OMG I can't even imagine that day, which is very very far away), I still have this huge urge to load up a brand spanking new box of crayons & markers!  Mr. Sketch was my favorite; I was that kid that always had marker on my nose from constantly smelling them!  Grape is best.  :-)

This image made me smile this week!  It's just one of those things that gives you the warm & fuzzies inside!  So happy Friday, and I hope you all have a lottle fun this weekend!
