5 on Friday

ONE.  My mom and friend, Shells, sent this to me this week.  It came in their inbox and the subject was "Hi Andie (plus, free shipping today only)".  Aww, Andie.  Love seeing her name out there in a feminine use.

TWO.  TL has been daydreaming about owning one of these for years.  He is constantly looking them up, researching them, and dreaming about taking our family on road trips.  Maybe someday... but for now, I will enjoy listening to his once a week sales pitches to me.  I'll admit, I am usually not one for campers... but this does look fun.  Start saving, hun... maybe after the kid(s) are a little older.

THREE.  I am ridiculously, out of my mind excited for my niece to be born.  My sister is now 38.5 weeks pregnant with Stella and I am counting down the days until I meet her.  Having the entire experience of birth and having a newborn fresh in my mind... I am thrilled for my sister and BIL to have this baby.  They are going to be fabulous parents.  I am also excited to take 4 million pictures of her and Andie together.  BFFCs.  Bring on the matching outfits and girly accessories!

FOUR.  Have you seen this commercial before?  If you haven't, watch it.  It makes me laugh every. single. time.  Very clever!


FIVE.  I love this quote.  It's our intangible qualities that our children truly cherish. This is my dad and Andie.  I guess "children's children" would be more fitting for this picture.  Although, we'd all be in his arms if he could fit us.

Thanks, ladies, for hosting this fun link up!

Love that picture of Andie and your Dad - so so sweet :) And... Jurgen is also dying for one of those mercedes camper vans and keeps raving about all the space on the inside... it must be a guy thing haha. It's somewhat lost on me personally ;)

That van is pretty pimp. I was in one once while I was in Europe and they are really smooth!

Can't let my husband see it/ he will be drooling over it in no time!

My husband often talks on tangent about an airstream. Goofy men!

Angie said...

I am with TL on this one. I'd love to own one of those for road trips! We love to camp though so I guess that is the difference LOL

Your Dad nad dear hubs remind me so much of each other... Guess that is why they made such a great EGFD crew!

That van! I thought my fiance was the only one who drooled over them! He is obsessed with getting one. We only have one kid, who's ten months old. He's trying to convince me we need it to take her to Disneyland! LOL. That last quote is great! Cute blog!!
