Five on Friday

Happy Friday y'all!!  Whew... What a week!  Jack & I have been on the go quite a bit & I finally (thankfully) got back to cooking! I've been in such a cooking funk for way too long, I think I'm finally shaking it!  Moving along... I'm linking up with April today for Five on Friday.

1. Jack turns 6 months old today!!  HOW has this happened!? & so quickly!?  Update coming next week!

2. As mentioned above I have been back in the swing of cooking this week & it feels so good!  For a long time now I have made weekly meal plans & they just seem to work wonderfully for Matt & I!  It leaves out the guess work & decision making each evening and most importantly it helps to only make 1 weekly grocery trip!  I'm thinking about sharing my weekly meal plans here on the blog - probably on Sunday mornings & making it a link-up.  If you make a meal plan or have a recipe that you've recently shared on your blog, feel free to link-up!  Not only will this help keep me accountable but, I think it would be a fun way to find new recipes as well!  Thoughts?  Will you join me??

3. Jack & I have been on the go this week - every day but, Thursday we have been out of the house doing something!  Mostly fun things though... Monday we went to the Ft Worth Zoo with my girlfriend Erin & her sweet baby boy Camden!  And on Wednesday we all ventured to the Amon Carter Art Museum for Story Time!  Even though the boys were by far the youngest there, we still had a good time!  Jack loves being around people so He just soaked it all up!

Fun at the zoo!

Enjoying Story Time at the museum!

4. After almost 9 months I finally get to wear my wedding rings!!  I may of had to visit the jeweler to be able to wear them but, I AM WEARING THEM!!!  I have felt so naked without them & missed wearing them so much.  It feels great to finally have them back... and much more blingy than they've been in a looong time!

5. And last but, certainly not least... Hearing of the passing of Leslie Sisti from A Blonde Ambition has me completely heart broken.  I hadn't read Leslie's blog in a long time but, would keep up with her through social media.  I cannot imagine her final days, knowing she would be leaving behind her husband & two tiny baby girls.  My heart hurts for Leslie, her husband & especially her two girls.  Although I was fortunate enough to have my mom for 19 years, it's still not easy not having your mom around.  I can only imagine what it will be like for those girls.  I have prayed so much for them this week & squeezed my Jack a whole lot tighter.  Forcing myself to put the phone down, get done what I need to & just play, soak it up & enjoy all the time I can with him.  My thoughts & prayers are with Lesli's family today & in the coming weeks as they begin to adjust to life without her.

Sorry to end on a somber note but, I hope y'all have a great weekend!  Soak it up!  Live it up!  And love whoever a whoooole lot!


  1. Jack is adorable! Happy 6 months to him!!
    Love that you get to wear your bling again! One of my friends got a cheap engagement looking ring to wear when she was pregnant because she was tired of getting judgy looks from people who thought she was pregnant and not married!
    Hope you guys have a great weekend!

  2. Your little guy is so adorable! And that is so encouraging to see all of the fun things you're getting to do with him! Makes me so excited for when my little guy arrives! Happy Friday!

  3. Cheers to 6 months (that happened so fast! I feel like I was reading your pregnancy updates a month ago!) and to your wedding rings again! YAHOO, mama! xx

  4. Happy six months to Jack. I love the picture of him in sunglasses. There's just something about a baby in sunglasses that takes their cuteness to a whole new level!

    1. I agree! Something about sunglasses makes them too cool for school!
