Five on Friday

1. Pregnant friends craving sushi!!! I found a recipe for us!!

I made these on Tuesday and omg, YUM. Almost like real sushi. My mouth is watering now just thinking about them! The only thing I changed was instead of putting them in a measuring cup and making a nice little tower, we just threw all of our ingredients in a bowl. It was like Chipotle for "sushi"...amazing.

2. My friend Anni had a Shrimp and Grits Kids trunk show last night and I am SO excited about Ella and Baby Ferg's outfits I got!

The monograms will have to wait, since baby boy is still nameless. But I am so excited for them to match at the beach AND for those warmer UNC football games!
{Also, if any one is looking for a birthday present for Ella, I also loved this, this and this!}

3. We went to look at preschools this week! 

I can't believe my little baby is old enough to go to school in the fall! But we really loved one (and Ella seemed to like it too)! I'm just trying to decide if it's really worth it to send a two year old to preschool?! I don't want her to be burnt out on education by age 5. ;) Let me know if you have any input one way or the other!

4. I saw this quote pop up on my Instagram the other day, and it was one of my favorites when I was teaching. 

I'm trying to remind myself of this daily as Ella is starting to enter "terrible twos" territory and is testing my patience daily hourly!

5. Big shoutout to my dad; it is his birthday today!!!

And happy birthday to Dana tomorrow....

{side note: umm Dana, we need to see each other! This was the most recent pic of us together! And it's over a year old!}

...and Trav's dad on Monday!!!

All of these birthdays means someone else's is coming up on Wednesday!!! Eeek! I am little more excited about it this year, knowing I don't have to go back to work the next day! 

Have a great weekend!!!


  1. I can't believe Ella is almost two! Time flies so fast. Daycare isn't quite the same as preschool, but I kind of think of it that way (maybe to make myself feel better), and Avery really does learn so much! I'm amazed at the new things she comes home saying or do. Plus it would be a little break for mama, which isn't a bad thing. ;)

  2. You will be SO glad she's in school once that new baby is here. Sending M this past year has been SUCH a good choice for her/us. If she were home 5 days a week, she'd be getting a lot more screen time, and when she's at school 3 days a week I know she's getting interaction with her peers, no TV, and she's having fun and learning. Plus, we all get a break from one another! I have not regretted sending her to preschool for one minute! Also, I'm nosey and want to know where you looked :)
