Five on Friday

Happy Friday, friends!!

1. April posted this great mom-hack the other day and while it is the simplest thing, I don't know why I didn't think of it myself!
Ready for this? Hang a dustpan and broom with a Command hook by baby's high chair for easy clean up! 

Duh!!! Love it.

2. Another masterpiece by my little artist!

I can't. handle. it.

3. Speaking of how fabulous my child is.... ;) While Trav and I were in Vegas, Ella stayed with her grandparents (my parents watched her Thursday-Friday, and Trav's came to watch her Saturday-Sunday). I'm not sure what those grandparents were doing with my child, but she has gotten exponentially smarter and now knows the following words:
-apple (and points to the apple icon on the iPad)
-strawberry (she used to just say "straw straw")
-and if you ask her what a lion says, she now goes, "RAHHH!" and it's the funniest thing ever

I'm pretty impressed with those 4 days of Grandparent Daycare! 

4. Confession: I think I am the only person in America who has not bought something at the Nordstrom sale yet! Feel free to bring this to my husband's attention!!!!
But what I did buy recently were these Tory sandals!

Not only are they on sale, but I got them when Tory was running a 30% off sale items special...and then she gave me $50 to spend for my birthday! So these guys cost me a whopping $35!! Woohoo!

5. Wanted to share 2 yummy recipes I whipped up this week:

Both were delicious!!!

Have a happy Friday and a great weekend!!


  1. Love her ladybug!

    I don't think I've ever purchased stuff during the Nordstrom sale, but I broke down this year and got a new diaper bag I had been wanting and some Tea Collection stuff for M. None was necessary, but I can't wait for my delivery!

  2. The ladybug picture is adorable. And both of the recipes you made look delicious!

  3. That's such a great price for those sandals! What a steal!!
