Five on Friday...

Happy Friday Everyone! I'm looking forward to doing this link-up for the first time with Darci, Natasha, Christina, and April! I think its such a simple way to get a post in on this busy Friday!

I'm especially happy this friday because this mama is exhausted after picking up extra shifts all week long for my partner as well as party prepping for my husbands "DIRTY THIRTY" birthday party which we will be hosting tomorrow. 

I'm totally loving my VITAMIX! I know it is a ridiculously expensive blender, but seriously there is nothing that this thing can't do, it has a 7 year warranty and the average life span is 20-30 years. My uncle is still using his grandparents vitamin from who knows how long ago. I'm having so much fun experimenting with baby food, soups, smoothies, and ice cream. 

I'm still in a form of shock that my husband is going to 30 on Monday! Seriously, Where does the time go? I met him back when he was 21, and now he is going to be 30. However it makes me so proud to look back over the last 9 years and see everything we accomplished, conquered, and the life we have built together. He is the most caring, supportive, and generous guy a girl could ask for. I couldn't be luckier to have him by my side on this wild journey we call life. 

Loving that my little was an absolute trooper as I took her to get her ears pierced today. She didn't even shed a tear or flinch and I couldn't be more proud of the tough little girl she has already become. 

We are all looking forward to tomorrow (and tomorrow being over) as we throw a 30th birthday party and all our friends and family come to see our beautiful home for the first time. All the prep work has been done and we are off to enjoy the weekend! Hope everyone else has a nice weekend as the chaos of school starting back up is just around the corner!

  1. Happy Birthday to Travis!!! I can't believe it has been 9 years. Noelle's ears look so cute!

  2. Was searching for a GF's blog and came across yours. Started reading and came across your post and picture of your daughter with her newly pierced ears. How cute! We did our two girls at this age.

    I think you were a smart and thoughtful mommy for doing it early when mommy could care for them Babies and little girls with bling celebrates their femininity and femaleness. After all, they are little girls.

    Our ped encouraged us to have our dd done as an infant too right after her first DPT shot at six weeks. She also pierced her dd's ears after she gave me some tips for moms having their dd's ears pierced.

    Any moms doing research or would like more info, drop me an e-mail.
