Five on Friday

Tomorrow is the official start of Summer, and I am more than ready!  Let's get right to it, here's my five...  As always, thanks to all the lovely hosts: Christina, Darci, April, & Natasha!


I seem to be rotating Liam through his my same favorite shirts, so I've been looking for some new fun ones for summer.  I just discovered Alpine Baby Co. & am loving all their stuff!  The leggings are especially squeal worthy.  I will surely be snatching up all sorts of pairs whenever we have another little one.  For now, I settled on this simple tree shirt.  It reminds me of the beautiful PNW (which we will be visiting in one week, eek)!

Bath time is still a favorite of Liam's, but Conor mostly handles that part of the bedtime routine.  While they are splashing around, I savor my bit of "me" time.  I love this time of night!  And I especially love finding adorable bath pictures when I'm scrolling through Conor's phone (not in a creepy way of course).

I've said it many times before, but... I just love the blogging community!  Firstly, thank you for the sweet comments on my "mom guilt" post; they all gave me the warm & fuzzies!  Secondly, I love all of the relationships that I have built through this blog.  Sometimes when Conor scrolls through my Instagram (again, not in a creepy way), he'll ask if these are real friends or internet friends...  They are all friends in my little world!  This week I was lucky to be able to meet up with Cat (and her daughter Mae) from Thrifty Littles.  It was my first time actually meeting another blogger, and it was wonderful!  We spent a couple hours chatting over coffee while Mae & Liam bonded over snacks & their mutual love of animals.  They chased Charlie (our cat) around our house practically the whole time.  I wish I could have snapped an adorable picture of the two of them, but this is all I got.  I swear they are beautiful babies & usually photogenic...I guess they just weren't feeling this shot...

I dropped my sunglasses the other day and one of the lenses shattered!  Of course this had to happen a week before our vacation, grr!  Can you get just the lenses fixed?  They are Ray-Bans, but I bought them at Nordstrom last summer...  I'm not exactly sure how to go about handling this situation, so I may just need a new pair.  I'm kinda loving this Tory Burch pair, but Conor will surely tell me that they look bug-eyed or like a windshield on my face!

I made a Trader Joe's run this week, which lately just consists of me purchasing a ton of their sweets! My favorites: Dark Chocolate Almonds with Sea Salt & Turbinado Sugar, Fluer de Sel Caramels, & Salt Water Taffy.  You can thank me later!

Now get out there and enjoy the start of Summer!

  1. I love bath time for the exact same reason! Though lately Noah hasn't wanted to stay in very long and all I end up doing is clean up his toys :(.

  2. Happy Friday! Love those Tory Burch sunnies. I bought them in January:)

  3. Bummer about your sunglasses! I would bring them into Nordstrom and ask if they come with a warranty. If not say "to heck with it" it and splurge on a new pair!

  4. ohmygosh, thanks for the alpine baby link!!! so cute!!!

    Funny my husband would say the same thing about my sunglass choices =)

    mmmmm taffy

  5. Happy summer! I picked up some of that salt water taffy the other day. I'm a little obsessed with Trader Joe's!

    1. Me too! I don't do my every day shopping there, but I love their snacks!

  6. Dark chocolate almonds with sea salt?! Umm yes please. I think I might need a run to Trader Joe's this weekend...


I love reading all your comments!
