Five on Friday

One. Blog Hiatus 

I apologize for not being quite "there" lately. Blogging has taken a bit of a backseat while I struggle to maintain the house, run errands, entertain a toddler, all on little to no sleep with a husband who has just started to worst rotation he will have this year. We're literally seeing him for 20 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes in the evening. It really, really sucks. April can't come soon enough!

Two. Hello Spring!

With that said, I'm so, so happy the warmer weather is starting to stick around. We went to the park twice this week (I even wore shorts!) and spent lots of time in our front yard coloring with sidewalk chalk. A cold front passed through over night and we're back in the 40s, but thankfully not for long! I'm so ready to have my windows open every day and to sit out back on our deck for lunch!

3. Party Planning

Yes, I realize I've got four months to plan Miss A's second (say whattt) birthday party, but I can't help it! I'm already on Pinterest browsing for ideas. I see lots of Oreo's at her party...with Mickey and Minnie Mouse as the star of the show!

4. Working Hard

Despite not sleeping through the night, Miss A has SO much energy. I was so happy to stumble upon a preview class of The Little Gym for a fraction of the cost and quickly signed her up. She LOVED it, anything that she can climb is a huge deal for her right now. By the end of class she was the last one to leave, with many tears shed!

Five. Friends

I can't tell you how important it is to have mommy friends when you become a mother. There is no one else who will understand what you're going through (sorry friends who don't have kids yet) like another Mom. I was so fortunate to make a really good friend here right from the beginning and I have loved watching these two grow and change together. My friend's daughter is a few months younger than Miss A but that doesn't seem to matter at all. They may not always get along (Addie has quite the flair for dramatic, don't touch her sippy or snack cup!), it is so sweet to watch their relationship grow.

Happy Friday and don't forget to link up with the ladies!


  1. Sorry to hear about your hubby's rotation - doesn't sound fun at all. Hang in there! Loving that Spring print and happy that the weather is warming up for you guys!!

  2. I couldn't agree more about the mommy friends thing, glad you guys have each other! And hang in there, April is getting REALLY close! :)

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. That class looks perfect for Addie, maybe it will tire her out ;) I'm so excited for warmer weather too, not shorts though haha.

  4. Bella turns 2 in June and I started planning in January :-X lol. We are just on the ball right?? And I know what you mean about the mommy friends! My hubby and I don't have any friends or family members with kids so it can be hard to relate with. Glad they are so close in age!!! The warm weather cannot get here soon enough!

  5. Just discovering your blog. Love this post! Hoping Spring comes sooner for you and your little one ;)
