Five on Friday

Happy Friday everyone!  My parents arrived yesterday afternoon for a long visit, and I couldn't be happier!  Tonight we are going out to dinner (sans Liam) for my mom's birthday dinner.  I can already taste the wine hitting my lips!  The rest of the weekend will be spent parade watching, corned beef & cabbage eating, and Selection Sunday bracket picking!  Maybe we'll even throw in some morning cocktails & a few hikes to make sure we earned it.  Blue skies are headed our way for days!

I plan on getting in as much quality time as possible, so I will be away from this little blog for bit.  For now, enjoy my five. As always, thanks to all the lovely hosts: Christina, Darci, April, & Natasha!


I saw that this sweatshirt was crazy on sale ($17 instead of $38) and just had to snatch it up for Liam!  We absolutely love the snow (although we're happy spring is here, don't get any ideas mother nature), so Liam will love sporting it next Winter.

One of my favorite dishes that I often forget about is this Lemony Chicken Saltimbocca.  I made it this week and served it over a bed of angel hair pasta.  Perfect dinner and relatively quick & easy to throw together.  It's a Cooking Light recipe, so it doesn't even come with a side of guilt; I highly recommend!

I have been an active member of my local La Leche League for over a year now, and I have now been asked to become a leader!  I am a huge breastfeeding "activist" so this seems like the perfect opportunity.  However, it is a time consuming process, so I'm not sure if this is the right time to take on such an endeavor.  Any LLL leaders out there that can offer any experience on the process...?

The weather has made it feel like summer is right around the corner, so I'm been looking for some fun summer shoes for Liam.  I grew up wearing Saltwater sandals, and I just can't wait to get Liam in a pair. Oh the nostalgia...I just can't handle it!  It will be utter cuteness!

One of the things on our possible to do list this weekend is the Homestead Crater Hot Springs.  The pictures are making it look pretty enticing!

Enjoy the weekend!
Anyone else going to be hitting up a St. Patrick's Day Parade?!

  3. It sounds like you have a wonderful weekend ahead of you! Enjoy your visit with your parents & all the fun you have planned.

  4. Yay for being a LLL leader! I love them!! They were such a huge to support to me with Kenya and I loved taking her to their meetings last summer - they even helped me with making the difficult transition back to working this past fall and to continue nursing through it. They are a wonderful organization and I'm so happy you'll be a leader to help other women to have the wonderful gift of breastfeeding!!!

    1. I love the LLL community too! I'm so happy they were such a huge help for you. So many women don't even know about the organization. I love being able to help other women, but I'm not sure that I'm ready for the time commitment that being a leader comes with right now. It is something that I am very seriously considering though and plan on becoming a leader eventually! Maybe it is something you should consider too... ;-)


I love reading all your comments!
