Five on Friday

Another busy weekend ahead!  I love keeping our schedules busy as we get closer to my due date.  Less time to spend "waiting" and more quality time with Liam.  On this weekend's agenda: meet with my doula tonight, Saturday morning triathlon for Conor, Saturday afternoon BBQ with friends, & all day Sunday to spend with my little family!  Here's my (sometimes) weekly five...  As always, thanks to all the lovely hosts: Christina, Darci, April, & Natasha!

THE GOOD LIFE BLOG 

-ONE-
How gorgeous is this tree?!  Tons of these trees are lining the streets near my neighborhood!  Needless to say, Liam & I have been taking far more walks.  This crazy warm weather has led to one beautiful Spring!  I'm already itching for my peony to bloom!


-TWO-
Recently I have started to notice I have these perpetually tired mom eyes, especially in pictures.  Not sure if it's the constant sleep deprivation or the fact that I'm just a year shy of 30 and maybe just maybe I'm getting wrinkles.  Regardless, I need to do something about it.  The eye cream I had previous been using (Hempz) is no longer available to me, so I need some suggestions!  Tell me what magic anti-aging you gals are using that make you look flawless...or at least not in need of a coffee at all times!



-THREE-
Received this little gem for Conor last week.  When in the midst of the witching hour, it's the last thing you want popping up on your iPhone...  When this happens, Liam & I jump in the car and head to Jamba Juice.  Always Jamba!


-FOUR-
As much as I love a good pair of heels, they just don't get see much time out of my closet these days. I have a ridiculous amount of flip flops for summer, but I think it's time I invest in a fancier pair of sandals.  And of course my finer tastes have me gravitating towards this Tory Burch "Miller" Sandal...


-FIVE-
We had our maternity photos (lifestyle shoot) done on Tuesday and already we have received two sneak peeks!  I can't get enough and am anxious to see them all!  Kali did an incredible job capturing our family!


TGIF friends!
I have an exciting giveaway coming up on Tuesday, so stay tuned for that fun!

  1. Your trees are beautiful! Ours are still totally bare :(. And I hate when I get the working late texts... It always means I'm doing bedtime alone and noah doesn't get to play with daddy :(. And I love the two sneak peeks so far too! Have a great weekend!

  4. Obsessed with the maternity photos!! And as for eye creams, I just started using Neocutis Lumiere and it is AMAZING. Kind of pricey though so if you don't want to spend as much, Origins GinZing cream is great, too! Happy weekend!

  5. Oh I hate texts like those! Our ones where my husband asks ever so nicely if he can go the baseball/basketball game last minute with a friend who has an extra ticket -- can't say no, but it is SO hard! I've loved seeing you maternity photos -- they're beautifully clear and bright! Share any eye cream tips! I'm feeling so old and haggard!

  6. I am LOVING your maternity pictures - keep sharing them!!! I got some Jack Rogers sandals that go with everything and are super cute - they have the same style as TB, but I think they are a little less expensive. (However, I can never turn down some cute TB flats!) I have been using Arbonne eye cream and LOVE IT, and the bottle lasts FOREVER. Have a great weekend!!

    1. Thanks, I'm anxiously waiting to see more! I think the sandals may need to be my splurge purchase after baby arrives. :-)

  10. Oh, I can't wait for our trees to start blooming!! I've seen some little buds this week and I'm so excited.
    And why is the witching hour when we get home and are trying to make supper..?! I feel ya, momma. Jamba juice sounds like a perfect answer.
    Love those sandals.
    Can't wait to see more of your pics, beautiful!! :)

  12. Ahhh more pictures! more pictures!!

    My lilac bush is in full bloom and it smells so good! I keep trimming off flowers and bringing them into the house. It's glorious. I can't wait for my peony bush to bloom too! Probably around mothers day I would guess :)

    We've got a crazy busy April too, which makes me glad because like you, I'm enjoy not thinking about "waiting" and just enjoying all the one on one time we have left with Abigail.

  16. Running late is my least favorite thing to hear. I count on that usual daddy home time!! Good idea heading off for Jamba Juice.

  17. The trees do look beautiful! Hahaha, yep, I actually sent out a text similar to that this week. I think it was along the lines of "PLEASE come home." Pretty self explanatory. ;) OMGOODNESS, I've seen your maternity pics on Instagram. They're uhh-mazing! Hope y'all have great weekend!
