High Five for Friday

Friday is here!! It's been a fun week around these parts.

1. My birthday was last weekend, and my husband surprised me with an overnight trip to the beach, complete with Jacuzzi suite! It was awesome. The weather was fantastic, the hotel was great, and we had a wonderful time. It's amazing how even getting away just overnight still feels like a vacation and leaves you feeling refreshed.

2. I got the movie Pitch Perfect on DVD for my birthday, and I've watched it approximately 87 times since then. If you haven't seen this movie, then RUN to the nearest Redbox and watch the shit out of it. Funniest movie ever. 

3. Spent two days this week working on a new painting for D's bedroom. I spend so much time in there, I was sick of staring at the same old boring walls, so I decided to spice it up with a little octopus named Ollie!! I really like how it turned out, however, upon hanging it on the wall, I decided it needs a fourth panel to make it look more complete, so I'll be adding that in soon.

4. One of my favorite things about Spring is planting flowers! The dollar spot at Target never fails me... these cute little planting kits were only $3! I've got cilantro, daisies and strawberries on their way :)

5. D went for his 4 month check-up today, and had to have shots :( Good news is that the pediatrician said he was ready to try cereal!! So obviously I rushed out to the store to get some, as well as some rubber tipped spoons, and now I have to wait until Hubby gets home so we can do it together.... this is motherhood, folks. You get excited about feeding your kid cereal.

I'll be in Alabama at my parent's house for the next two weeks, so posting may be sporadic! I'll miss you little blog-loves terribly! Have a lovely weekend!!


  1. Oh my goodness! New follower! Love your blog title considering how addicted to books I am.

    Yay for a surprise beach trip! Those are awesome. I'm going to the beach at the end of the month with my girl friends. Also, I agree about the fourth panel, but so cute! Way to go! And how ironic is it that I live in Alabama? Small world! Check out my H54F.

  2. I totally get ya on the whole excitement of parenting moments! We are on our third baby, and I still waited for the hubby to be here for his first feeding. :)
