Five on Friday

Happy Friday! It's been a crazy, sleep-deprived, exciting week for us. You'll hear more about that tomorrow. In the meantime, here are some things I'm loving/obsessing over this week! Be sure to join the party!

1. Vera Bradley Baby Backpack

Earlier this week Vera Bradley was having a sale. I took a little look-see and saw these super cute baby backpacks. It's basically a diaper bag, except you're wearing it on your back! I don't know if I've been living under a rock but I thought this was genius. Too bad I don't have a legit reason to get one, my diaper bag is still in great shape! 

2. The Great Gatsby 

It's not that easy nowadays to go see a movie. We'd have to ask a friend to baby sit and coordinate we have lots of movie nights at home after Miss A goes to bed. Recently we saw The Great Gatsby, which I was dying to see. There was so much press for this movie when it was coming out and hello, Leo is in it. That's right, we're on a first name basis. I love Leo and anything Leo is in I have to see. We were pleasantly surprised, it was really good!

3. Pumpkin Fluff Dip

Is it too soon for me to have a Halloween party and invite all of little Miss A's friends?? How fun is this pumpkin dip! Speaking of which, I have NO idea what she's going to be for Halloween this year. There are too many choices!

4. The Vampire Diaries 

I'm SO excited for Fall TV. One of my favorite shows is The Vampire Diaries. I read the series years ago, in middle school. As much as I love the show, the books are so much better. They couldn't have picked a better cast; Stefan, Elena (besides the fact that she's a brunette), and Damon play their characters perfectly. If you haven't read the books, you should. Are you a fan of The Vampire Diaries?

5. Books, books, books

If you follow me on Instagram, then you've seen me sharing some pictures of my daughter going through her books every night before bed. Last night she was looking through them and saying, "Ooooo." It was just too much. I can't handle the cuteness. I hope she continues to love books as she gets older!


  1. Connor is in love with books these days and I'm so happy he enjoys "reading". He will let me read book after book to him.

  2. Popping over from FOF. I made that pumpkin dip the last few years. Yumminess! Love the book pic. I also hope that my ten-month-old continues in her mommy's love of books rather than her daddy's disregard for them. Happy weekend!
