It's Fridayyyyy!

It's the freakin' weekend!! Thank you sweet baby Jesus! 
I'm linking up with a few lovely ladies for another 5 on Friday.

{one} It's been raining all day today and I love it. I can hear the thunder outside and it makes me warm and fuzzy inside because I'm THAT person who loves a good storm. And having been in Texas for a while now, I know that storms aren't a common occurrence in these parts. I have a few windows and blinds open. I plan on enjoying every single raindrop this afternoon.

{two} I have decided to bust my ass and make myself a priority and those some major poundage. If you've been around for a while, you've heard this before. I'm focusing on myself for the first time in a while. It's so easy to get caught up in being a Mom, Wife and Friend and forgetting to focus on YOU. So that's that. I started walking and making good food/snack decisions yesterday and in 2 days, I've walked/jogged 8 miles. Not bad for a chubby girl.

{three} Mailing out Connor's birthday invites was my top priority this week and I was able to get them stuffed, stamped, labeled and mailed yesterday during nap time. It took foreverrrrrr, too! 60 invites. I'm out of my dang mind with this party. For sure. Again, remind me again next year that smaller is better when planning a party for a baby.

{four} Tonight is date night and to say I'm looking forward to some alone time with the Mister is a gigantic understatement. We have seen so little of each other in the last 2 weeks, I'm really craving some alone time with my main man.

{five} I had a great heart to heart with this girl last night through text. It's moments like this that I am so thankful I started blogging. Nicole and others have been a huge support system in our move to Texas and our parenting adventure. Sometimes, it's strange that I related better to my blog friends than my real life ones but I truly believe that every person has been placed in your life for a reason.

Hope you all have a wonderful Friday!
Oh and remember to enter our giveaway!


  1. I love a good thunderstorm too. I'm jealous of your date night. It's been two months since our last one and between getting things done around the house and taking turns with the baby we rarely come together until the end of the day. It sucks sometimes. Hope you guys have a great time together!

  2. Came across your blog again from the 5 on Friday linkup! I LOVE storms! We have them a lot more frequently here in Virginia, it sounds like. Good luck with the party planning! My son's 1st was around a holiday weekend, so I didn't anticipate everyone being able to come - but they did! And it was so fun and such a blessing to have all the family and friends around!
    I know what you mean about blogging friends - it's the best when you have a close friend in your life who also blogs - the best of both worlds!

  3. Hi There, we had a thunderstorm here Friday as well. How excited getting all of the party invitations ready. Wow 60 is a lot of work but I am sure he is going to have the best 1st party ever :)

    Hope you had a great date night.

    p.s thanks for reminding me about part 2 of my post. I have been crazy busy lately and posted it last night :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, hope your having a great weekend.

  4. Wow 60 people! Dang girl! I think we had around 25 for Hunters 1st bday but mainly because our house isn't that big. I'm thinking this year we'll have maybe 15 if that many. Definitely smaller.

  5. We were lucky to have a good thunderstorm while we were in the Midwest this weekend. I miss a good storm something crazy!
    1st birthdays are a BIG deal. Ours might have been a little out of control, but I loved it. I'm almost certain the 2nd birthday will be MUCH smaller. :)
