Five on Friday

Wow, this week has FLOWN by...I can't believe it's already Friday! I can't say I'm mad about it though ;) We have our first official scrimmage tonight, so things are buzzing around here. Anyway, y'all know what I'm about on Fridays...linking up with Darci & her girls for yet another edition of Five on Friday!
{one} This week has been FULL of firsts for Miss Jaqs!
--We went to do our grocery shopping on Monday, and J spotted this cart as I was putting her into a regular one. She started say "oooooooo! wow!!!," so how could I even turn down that excitement?? Yep, I can't. I wet-wiped that thing down and put her in with her pony, and she raced all over the store. She had a BLAST, and I actually got to shop in peace...it was definitely our most "relaxing" grocery trip as of late. Think this is going to be happening many times from here on out ;) #dontjudgeme
--Even though J's hair is pretty long, I had yet to put it into piggies. This was the week! She looked so stinkin adorable...I can barely even handle it!! Unfortunately she pulled them out within about 30 minutes, but we'll keep working on it!
--We went to Jason's Deli one night with some friends since our hubbys haven't been getting home until 9:30 this week, and when momma needed a little extra visiting time? Pea got an ice cream cone! Oh my. She was in HEAVEN & STILL for like 15 minutes. Miraculous!
--The janitor has been letting me in the weight room at the high school since Rob has been busy with in-service, and one day two of them were in there eating donuts and asked me if they could share with Jaqs. Oy. It made me cringe a little bit, but those guys are so sweet that I didn't want to turn them down! So, Jaqs had her first donut, too! Another BIG moment for her ;)
 {two} I get asked about gluten-free bread from time to time, so I thought I'd let y'all in on a little secret: you can buy a FULL sized loaf at Jason's Deli! It's Udi brand which is by far my favorite brand. It's pricey at $12 a loaf, but that turns out to be the same if not a little less than buying the miniature loafs only offered at the grocery store.
mmm, grilled pepper jack & cheddar...i could eat this EVERY day.
{three} Oh, one more thing about Jaqs ;) She's been sitting on the potty ALL the time lately, and she has been letting me know when she goes #2 this week. What does it mean?! Nothing? Something? Should we start introducing the idea of pottying on the toilet or is she too young to bother with it? Help me out seasoned mommas!
{four} I came across these adorable cookies on Pinterest! Ohhh how I wish I knew how to do these fancy royal icing sweeties. I love these little football ones! Perfect for this coach's wife!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! XOXO

Whatever works in the grocery store! It's hard enough getting everything you need before an impending meltdown.

Those cookies are adorable, although I know they wouldn't even come close to looking like that if I attempted them!

Love Jaqs' piggies, so cute!

Jen said...

Jaqs looks so grown up!!! She is absolutely precious!

My mouth is watering just reading your post! That lunch looks amazing and those cookies....yeah, I have a major problem in the sweet department!

Hope you have a wonderful {early} birthday weekend!!! If we lived closer, we could enjoy a mimosa or a glass of wine to celebrate!

Oh that girl! She is getting so big and when I saw the photos of her hair, I about died from the cuteness.

My daughter FLIPS out when she sees the carts with cars. She loves them, they're kind of bulky to push around but so worth it (= I can't even handle the cuteness of those little pig tails. Once I convinced my daughter not to pull them out, she loves it when I do her hair like that. Which is MOST the time these days because how can I resist when she folds her little hands and asks for "two bows! peeeeeease?" haha

Heading over to check out your giveaway now.. happy early birthday!
