Five on Friday!

1. Our power randomly went out on Wednesday around 11:30 AM and did not get turned back on until 3 the next morning!!!! I have NO clue why it went out, but our entire street was black. 
I had all of these things I needed to do on Wednesday such as: run on treadmill, print off stuff for tutoring, vacuum...but I could not do any of those things!!! Ahhhhhh. It was kind of awful.
As soon as Ella was up from her nap, I drove immediately to Starbucks to pick up this guy...

and then to Chick Fil-A to get dinner. #momoftheyear

2. The good news with being without power all day is that I got lots done for Kathryn's baby shower!!

I'm slightly obsessed with this fabric I ordered for a special surprise thing I am making...I'll share soon, promise (if it turns out ok, that is)!

3. Ella FINALLY had her 18 month checkup yesterday (yes, she turned 18 months on August 3). Girlfriend is ginormous! She is now 33.2" long (76 %ile) and a whopping 28 pounds (93 %ile)!! What the heck happened to my little peanut?!

The doctor said she is perfectly healthy though, and growing just fine. And she calmed down once she discovered Elmo was on her band-aids.

4. I'm starting to get a little obsessed with this moms Facebook group we have here in Charlotte! This week, I got 2 of the greatest purchases ever off it...

a Dyson vacuum for $10

...and a magnetic Leap Frog thing with farm animals for $3! 

Ella is slightly obsessed with both of these; only wish I had discovered them sooner!

5. We are off to Chapel Hill later today!

We skipped out on last week's game because it was rainy (but she still got to watch the game with her boyfriend!), but I am excited to hit up Franklin Street with my fav Rameses-loving little lady!

Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. Growing girl! I hated (HATED) the 18 month appointment. M was so emotional before the shots even came out. She was really weary of all the doctors and nurses and it was just BAD. A lot of moms assured me it got better at 2, and sure enough at her 2 year old appointment, it was like a switch flipped, and she freaking LOVES the doctor now. She actually asks me regularly when gets to see him again and begs to go to my OB with me. All this to say....I promise it gets better!

    Have fun in Chapel Hill for the weekend!

  2. Aww, her check-up photos are too cute! So glad that Elmo made her pain go away. The fabric you got is gorgeous. I'm definitely a gold person. Also, I'm all about our local Facebook groups too. It's nice to have a community of people to find great deals from. Have an amazing weekend :)

  3. Ok need you to share the Moms group here!! And I have to ask, what size clothes is she in being in the higher percentile? Charlie is "off the charts" in height so she's already starting to wear 18 month clothes to fit her torso and long legs. She's only 9 months old so I can't figure out if she is ever going to slow down!!!

  4. The picture of her on the scales is so cute! We have the magnetic farm. Both my kids have loved it to pieces! Literally. :)
