Five on Friday

Wow. Worst blogging award goes to.....MEEEE!! I have been such a slacker this week. Life has happened & the days slipped by, but here I am! Back again for Five on Friday, of course. If I'm going to jump back in the saddle, I might as well do it with a "catch-all" post of sorts to get back to present day! Head over to Darci's blog to join in on the action!
{one}--Last weekend was packed full of fun! It started with the football game Friday night, which we won, and Jaqs made it through the WHOLE game. Y'all, that's crazy. She normally goes to bed no later than 8, and she was up until almost MIDNIGHT!!! I was shocked, but she remained happy through the whole game playing with her little friends, and she was thrilled to see daddy at the end of it all.
--We had our friends, Melissa & Mike over for dinner Saturday night and just had so much fun with them! They are the sweetest with Jaqs, and she loved having them here :)
--Sunday, the GG's made their way in town to give me my golden birthday presents (which were THE BEST EVER, by the way :)) and to spend some time with us since they were off on Labor Day. Jaqs was beside herself with excitement to see them!
We had a Pei Wei dinner, did a little shopping, and just had lots of fun playing! We're always so happy to have Grammie and GPop visit us :)
{two} Carter's had a big Labor Day sale which included an extra 25% off clearance, so I picked up these PRECIOUS tankinis for Jaqs for next summer for like $6! Here's to hoping I guessed the right size for next year. She's been pretty predictable so far, at least.
{three} I know I'm not the only one saying GOOD RIDDANCE to summer now that Labor Day has come and gone and football is in full swing, right? I'm SO OVER wearing swim suits and sweating to death, so I think it's about time the weather start cooperating, too. Get out of here with the 100 degree temps! All that to say, I'm at least pretending it's fall in my house by burning my FAVORITE candles! BBW had them on sale last week, plus I had a coupon, so I paid right around $7/each for them. I'll take it! I've been burning Pumpkin Cupcake this week, and it smells so delish.
{four} Um, my itty bitty newborn baby born just last week has SIXTEEN TEETH. What the what?! Craziness! All of her hard-earned little incisors have made their way through, and I'm so glad. Hoping we can have a few months of peace before the 2 year molars start rearing their ugly head.
{five} Oh, well, maybe she wasn't born last week...17 months old yesterday! I feel like Jaqs is changing by the day, and she really does seem to have a new word every day. This week's favorites: backpack, eyebrow (ha!), juice, fish, and shoe. My sweet, talkative little pea! Couldn't love the girl any more.

Hope y'all have a wonderful weekend! I'm counting on mine including a whole lot of relaxing with a side of wine and chocolate. ;) Dreamin' big, y'all! XOXO

Your little princess is so cute! Hitting up BBW is on my list to do today merely for the candles. This makes it even more appealing to go there!! Have a great weekend!
