FIVE on Friday

Hello Friday!!! Took you long enough to get here. 

Remember to link up for FIVE on Friday!

{one} This article made me second guess my love of Ohio for all of 15 seconds. 30 things are mentioned and I agree with just 12. That's just 40%. And can I please mention that numbers 7, 10 and 11 make absolutely ZERO sense to me? I was a Ohio resident for 30 years but I don't get those three.

{two} Now that I have one giveaway under my belt, I have 4 more in the works! I hope ya'll like FREE! Speaking of free, make sure you visit Suddenly Snowden for another chance to win a Raised In Cotton frame.

{three} My attempts to clean the house while Connor is awake are completely pointless and a waste of my time and effort. I learned this lesson all too well yesterday. When he went down at 9, I got more cleaning accomplished from 9-10:30 than I did all day.

{four} My parents, niece and nephew are coming to visit on Sunday and I'm so excited. I haven't seen them since May and Connor has changed so much since then, I can't wait for them to see him. In May he was starting the scooting part of crawling and now?? Oh boy! He has mastered crawling, standing and walking up and down any and every piece of furniture in the house.

{five} This starts this weekend. 'Nough said!

  I hope you have a great 3 day weekend! I'll be back Tuesday with Connor's 10 month blog post. 
*I may or may not be taking an extra day to write the post because
I can't wrap my head around the fact that someone is double digits this month.*


  1. Haha, yep, no point in cleaning while they're awake! I was able to clean all the bathrooms in the house yesterday during her nap and was so relieved to get it done. The only "cleaning" I get done with her awake is sweeping the kitchen floor or doing the dishes!

  2. I hear ya about the cleaning, just wait until he's two! Haha! I read the Ohio article two and totally did not agree with at least half of it. Although I will say that tonight on the news they were interviewing people from out of state that are at the Mumford and Sons concert in Troy and I was dumbfounded by the amount of people who called Troy a 'small town'.'s like one of the larger cities in our area! Haha!

  3. Just cleaned the house - it's 9:30PM. Amazing what I can get done when the little man is fast asleep.
