Friday Favorites

I can’t believe it’s already Friday.  I’m definitely not complaining… and we have a nice long weekend.

On another note, I don’t know what Aiden has planned right now, but he’s like on some sort of sleep strike lately.  He’s not crabby about it (but I might be).  Anyways, I’m hoping to get some sleep this weekend.

Here’s another round of the good ol’ links that caught my eye this week.

Favorite baby item - Elmo Shower Spray.  We have officially outgrown the sink tub to take baths in but I love the sprayer on the sink.  This solves the problem and Aiden will love playing with this too.  Sprayers make it so much easier to wash hair!


Favorite healthy festive treat - Candy corn fruit cups.  This makes eating healthy a little more fun!  Just add some mandarin oranges, pile some pineapple on top of that and then some whipped cream and you’re good to go.

Favorite appetizer dish - Roasted corn red pepper guacamole.  I love guacamole and I always love all different recipes for it.


Favorite sign – College football is starting people.  In my family, we love this season.  It’s my favorite sport (other than gymnastics)!


Favorite blouse - Contrasted high-low chiffon shirt.  Having an awkward postpartum belly (and body) right now makes me love flowy shirts even more than I did before. shirt

Favorite breakfast indulgence - Cuban bread french toast.  It’s always been a debate on whether I like pancakes or french toast more, but I think french toast is in the lead.  And this french toast looks more decadent than ever.  Pass it over.  (This would be why I would need the above flowy shirt, not the baby I had).


Favorite fall fashion - Scarves.  I never know how to pair patterns with prints.  This gives me hope that I can possibly pull it off.  I love the look of light scarves with shirts.


Favorite fun food - Funfetti Donuts.  I have seen tons of homemade donut recipes that you bake lately and I think I’m going to have to give in and try it.  Baking is better than frying, right?


Favorite thought provoker - The answer to a true/false question.  Not that this is exceedingly thought provoking, but I thought this was funny for an answer to a true/false question.


Favorite laundry room.  How beautiful is this room?  I love the back splash and the color palette.  Who am I kidding?  I love everything about this room.  I would probably even be motivated to do laundry in there.

I hope all of you have a great weekend and enjoy the remaining days of summer for all of us that have seasons!


A Day in the Life: 6 Months Old

So Aiden is just a few days short of 6 months old, but I thought it would be enlightening to compare his schedule from 3.5 months to now. This is a pretty average day for us: 2:30 am: Wakes up needing to be fed (comfort feed).  It’s hard to distinguish which are which these days.Continue Reading

Friday Favorites

It’s baaaaack – Friday favorites.  I took a long hiatus and realized that I liked doing it and so here it is.  I found the show Cake Boss and the Next Great Baker, so baking has been on my mind lately.  You might be able to tell. Favorite baby carrier - Natibaby Malta linen woven wrap.Continue Reading
