Five on Friday

Happy Friday!  I haven't been blogging quite as much as I'd like to lately, but I still managed to find some time for a Five on Friday post.    Thanks to the hosts, especially  Natasha & Darci, for the link up.  Here's the five things on my mind this week:

Tickets just went on sale for Alt SLC 2014!  While I would absolutely love to attend this incredible blogging event (especially since I live here), the ticket price ($625) is a little high for a teeny tiny small blogger like myself.  However, I'm hoping some of my favorite blog friends will be in attendance, and that I might be able to meet up with a few!  Let me know if you're going to be attending!

I read such a beautifully written blog post on breastfeeding this week that I had to share!  It's about breastfeeding with intention and has an amazing message.  I highly recommend this quick read for any mama who is breastfeeding right now.

My garden has really started producing all sorts of goodies this week!  I have a plethora of fresh herbs (basil, tarragon, chives, & rosemary) along with tomatoes, pumpkins (hello fall!), & zucchini!  A ridiculous amount of zucchini!  I've been grillin' it, stuffin' it, & puttin' it in bread...I'm starting to get a little zucchini-ed out, so I'm starting to share the love with neighbors!  Here is my favorite zucchini recipe at the moment.

Two words: Christmas. Shopping.  I am aware it is only August, but this is about the time I start thinking about Christmas gifts.  I like to be prepared & plan ahead, surprise surprise.  I already have my eye on a few things but have yet to make my first purchase of the Christmas season (unlike my Mom who inevitably has already purchased a few presents).  The secret boards on Pinterest are perfect for compiling a couple lists of ideas! 

I decided I need to make a "missing items" board for Liam's playroom!  He is constantly carrying one toy or another all over the house and things can quickly find a hiding place.  Right now, we're on the hunt for a pink triceratops dinosaur puzzle piece.  Hopefully it turns up soon, because we absolutely love this wooden Janod dinosaur puzzle and it just isn't the same incomplete!

I hope everyone has a wonderful time soaking up the last couple weekends of summer!
