Five on Friday

Two posts in a row! Look at me go!! ;) I think I might be getting back in the saddle after all! I've been missing "seeing" all of you for Five on Friday. In addition to my writing hiatus, I've also been missing out on reading all of your blogs. Hope you'll forgive me?
{one} My Temple girls had a little "going away" party for me the weekend before we left, and it was SO FUN!! Roxanne hosted a dinner and painting party in her adorable new home, and I had a blast spending quality time with my friends. We painted until ONE in the morning, and I'm so thrilled with the pieces we created! I've only painted a handful of times, most of which have been under the guidance of Roxy, but it is so relaxing and enjoyable. Maybe I'll have the courage to keep creating!

In the midst of our painting party, we decided shopping was definitely in order for the following day, so we made the trek to Ikea for even more fun! I didn't get a ton since I'd only have to pack it all up, but I did get matted frames to create a gallery with my freshly painted pieces which will go in J's next room. EEEEEK! Cannot wait to hang them up.
Thank you again, my friends, for making me feel so loved! I miss you already.

{two} I made this Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken this week, and it was SO YUM! Incredibly easy to put together, and you probably have everything you need in your fridge/pantry! I served ours with coconut rice & stir-fried veggies.
{three} West Texas welcomed us home with a snow storm! Schools were closed yesterday, and we've got another snow day to enjoy today! Truth be told, the roads were really not that bad yesterday, but hey, we'll take it. Jaqs had so much fun playing in the powdery goodness and was not thrilled when it was time to come in. Luckily some hot chocolate remedied that little meltdown quickly.
Our little lady had to work from home yesterday! Her phone conversations are SO ANIMATED. It cracks us up.
Ohh, my little OCD child...here she is dusting the snow off the bushes. Y'all, I'm not even kidding. She is so my kid: she can't stand for things to be out of order! I love it.

{four} Whew. I came across this little quote on Pinterest, and I have to say, it totally made me feel better about myself. Is that pathetic? That I'm getting my life advice from Pinterest?? Actually, don't answer that...
ANYWAY...sometimes I feel like I'm supposed to have everything "figured out" now that I'm a mom, but the truth is that I don't have a clue what I'm doing with myself. Some days I can't imagine doing anything other than what I'm doing right now while others I feel like I'm supposed to chase after some (hypothetical) dream job/career. So, if I'm allowed to be a mess in my twenties, then I have 4 years to figure it out. What happens when I'm 30? Ha!

{five} How can it be that Valentine's Day is in a week?? Obviously since we don't exactly have a house right now I haven't done any decorating or crafting (tear), but I can still totally get down with some Valentine food! Here's what I'm thinking for breakfast...

Hope y'all have a wonderful weekend! Stay warm!

It looks like you guys are staying busy! The food looks perfect for V-Day, I'm sure this time next year you'll get to decorate all out for the holiday!

What a busy and fun week. I really love that quote and needed it this week. I feel like as a mom there is extra pressure to have it all together and figured out. It's nice to know I'm not alone when I do t.

Ok number 4 totally had me cracking up. I agree, I feel like a total mess most days, or all days really. You are NOT alone!

Heart shaped bacon...wow ha! I really do hope you make that and please send me a picture lol!

Love Jaqs dusting off the snow. You would DIE if you came to my house haha!

Katie Elizabeth said...

Haha! I totally get all of my life inspiration from Pinterest so you aren't alone there :) Love the Valentines breakfast ideas, I may have to steal the french toast one!

Christina @ This Woman Cooks! said...

Are you kidding- I get advice/inspiration from Pinterest all the time. I love that quote! I feel that way too- that I should have it all figured out by now, but I don't! Glad to see you blogging again. :)

That Teriyaki Chicken looks great! Anything in a slow cooker has me sold! And I think I'm going to make heart shaped pancakes for breakfast on Sunday.

Stephanie said...

It's so insane that you all got that so much snow!! We got zip, zero, nada!

Brenda @ Chatting Over Chocolate said...

Hello from the link up :) Loving the heart eats!! Hope you're enjoying a lovely weekend!

That painting party looks so FUN! What a great idea :) I also adore that quote (so very true and such a relief for those of us still in our 20s) and your cute Valentine's Day breakfast ideas!
