Five on Friday

Hey y'all! I'm linking up with Darci & the girls today for Five on Friday. I missed it last week!
{one} Jaqs and I have had so much fun the past couple of weeks. I finally feel like we're in our "football season groove" and things are flowing pretty easily in our days. Rob and I were just talking about how much easier it is to take care of her right now than this time last year. Sure, she has meltdowns and moments that require some gentle discipline, but overall she is understanding a lot and can communicate her wants/needs. Her personality is just budding, and we LOVE it!
We went to Hobby Lobby one day this week, and Jaqs INSISTED on sitting in the baby cart. Ha!! I never put her in one of those things as an infant, but apparently it's a pretty comfy ride. She loved it, and we got plenty of looks, trust me :) Happy baby = longer shopping for mommy.

{two} Just when I think I can start getting in "fall" mode, 90+ degree temps strike again! For 3 days in a row it's been like 95...AWFUL. I'm over it. Ready to wear leggings {as pants}, sweatshirts, and boots. I've sprinkled some Fall throughout our home, nonetheless.

{three} Speaking of Fall, I need some new items in my wardrobe somethin' fierce. Most things in my closet are OLD (like HIGH SCHOOL, people...not kidding), don't fit well, or were purchased last year when I was still accommodating, ahem, mommy ta-tas and a post-partum body in general. I've been working out & lifting 4-5 days a week, and I'm back at my "happy place," so I think I deserve a little wardrobe revamp, right?! I want to get a few pieces that are versatile and comfortable, but I also don't want to be totally boring. Who wants to go shopping and help this girl out?! :)
 I adore Lauren Conrad's style and love her line at Kohl's! I did pick up these pants last week, and they are so cute and suuuuper comfy. Definitely will be a staple for me this year!

{four} Influenster must have read my mind with their Mama Vox Box. I was JUST saying that I wanted to branch out on BB creams, and 2 full bottles arrived in my box this week! I am LOVING the Pond's BB cream; it is so much thicker than the others I've used, and it covers really well. I think I'll be sticking to this brand from here on out!
{five} The baby girl and I are headed home-home for the weekend, and I'm so excited since we haven't been since the end of July. We are sad to have to leave daddy behind, but he'll get the chance to rest and relax while we're away. Anyway, my mom has called this a "no cook, all play girl's weekend," and I can't even tell you how thrilling that is! Ha ;) The hot air balloon festival will be in town, and we can't wait to take Jaqs! I think she'll love it.

Hope your weekend is happy!

That pic of Jaqs in the baby seat at HL is hilarious!!! I wish I could have seen your face pushing her around! :)) She is such a little doll! So glad y'all are in your football groove! I would imagine this year will be much easier! She'll have fun seeing her daddy "in action" and probably watching the cheerleaders! Have a good weekend, friend!

I'm feeling the same way about my daughter. She's 14 months old but this time last year she was only 3 months old! Definitely a huge change. I'm watching her personality come out too, with tantrums already!

I could use some new Fall staples too. I also love Lauren's line in Kohl's. Such cute stuff!

Cam is 15 months and this fall is SO MUCH MORE FUN (well, different) than last year at this time! The interaction, the playing...and a lot less crying. :)

I LOVE those pants...I may have to invest in some! Make sure you check out GAP online...they have been having some great deals lately and free shipping with $50 purchase. :)

Have a great weekend!!

Hi there, linking up for Five On Friday. Your little girl is so cute. It was warmer here for a day but I am the to wear leggings and boots. Hope you have a great weekend.

I agree! Once they get into the 14-15 month stage they become SO fun! I,love to see their personalities evolve and that I can communicate with them! Your weekend sounds lovely, enjoy!!

You totally deserve some new clothes!!! I hope you have a super fun weekend!

Leah said...

I totally agree about this stage, while it still has it's challenges (what age doesn't), it's definitely so much easier.

I hope you have a great weekend at your parents!

influenster is great! I just signed up too!

Mateya said...

I can't stop cracking up at the picture of her in the infant seat on the cart. Too funny!

Have a great weekend at home...sounds like fun!

I'm literally dying over that Hobby Lobby pic! What a little ham!! And I have some sweet high school gear in my closet too…YIKES! Have a great weekend at home!!! :)

I got my first vox box and still need to go shopping for it because it's for cheese! I love the momma voxbox! Lauren Conrad has the cutest clothes! I love that they're easy going, look comfy and still really stylish.

Working out 4/5 days a week? That's amazing! Where does Jaqs go while you work out?! I need to exercise. I hate it so much/can't find the time these days.

I love LC's line at Kohl's, too.

A little jealous that you're finding now easier parenting wise. Holden is anything but easy lately. ;( Shew. Tantrums galore and communication is somewhat lacking.

Hope you have a great weekend at home-home!

My husband and I were just saying the same thing about how much easier Mac is now than he was a year ago. I can't believe how quickly they change. Next year at this time we'll be in the middle of the terrible twos and probably saying the opposite!
