5 on Friday

ONE.  Our cousin, Mackenzie, got a "lovey" made for Andie after she was born, and Andie loves it.  She chews on it and holds it all the time.  So, we had to get one for her cousin Stella.  I love this etsy shop - she was fast and customized it to exactly what I wanted. :)  It's called Little b Designs.


TWO.  I am a huge Costco fan.  TL and I will sometimes go there and just wander.  It's a dangerous place - traps everywhere to suck you in and steal your money! ;)  Recently, while we were waiting for photos to print, I wandered through their Organic section and found two awesome things.  The Mamma Chia Squeeze Packs - they have good stuff in them and are great to grab on your way out the door.  They look like they're for babies, but they're not.  Also, they have Minsley Organic Steel Cut Oatmeal.  It's so easy to make - pop the little cup of it into the microwave for one minute, remove it and add some almond milk.  It's so fast and delicious for breakfast!

THREE.  It was an exciting week for television lovers!  My two favorite shows are back on... Nashville and Parenthood.  It always seems like it is so far out when they start advertising the new seasons of these shows... so I can't believe it's already back again.  Nashville was really good, I am excited for this season.  I haven't watched Parenthood yet, but it's on my to do list this weekend.

FOUR.  I have been looking for a good festive drink to serve when we have people over for niners games or game nights, and I love this one that I found on Meet The Sullivans.  She has some awesome drink ideas - and this is perfect for fall!  

FIVE.

Thank you to the beautiful bloggers who post this link up each week.  I look forward to it each Friday.  


Have a beautiful weekend!

I love that quote "bloom where you are planted". We are in California for my Husbands job, and whenever I get homesick, I try to remember it. I just ordered this cute block to serve as a constant reminder.

I totally just saved those two shows in my iPhone notes... we have been on the hunt for some new shows this fall and those were not on my radar at all!

Excited!!!!

Ps - those loveys are adorable and make the perfect little gift.

Happy weekend, dear!

Thanks so much for the shout-out! The sangria really is fantastic! I hope you like it!

Now you've got me wanting to go to Costco!! I haven't been in almost a month, and I know I'm missing some really fun things!

Have a great weekend!!

Those loveys would make adorable gifts for my friends' new babies. Also, I made Colleen's Apple Cider Sangria for Grandparents Day and it was a hit. A perfect fall cocktail!

I think I need to start getting involved on a Friday x
We have a similar thing to loveys in SA, called taglets - and our little SJ sleeps with one every night (perfect for self soothing!) x

I'm going to check out that etsy shop and maybe order one for my friend's baby who is due in Dec! Thanks for the idea.

I love Parenthood and Nashville too. My fave shows. I hope to watch Parenthood today.

I got addicted to Parenthood last year but am a season behind because I've watched them all on Netflix. I'm so excited they finally released last season on there!
