Five on Friday - Favorites

I’m off today to celebrate with my baby girl for her birthday, so today is going to be a good Friday indeed!

O N E – Night Out With the Girls

Wednesday was National Margarita Day so I headed out with five of my favorite ladies to our favorite Mexican place.  We used to have weekly margarita nights every Wednesday, but now that we all have kiddos we go more like once a month.  We hadn’t gone in more like two months this time, though, so it was long overdue.  We had the best time catching up and laughing and being slightly too rowdy.  We even had a secret admirer send a drink to the table for one of my friends… can’t say that’s happened lately!   We were pretty sure it was the super old guy at the table next to us (and by super old I mean like 65), so yeah… not that exciting, and probably just kinda creepy.  Haha.  My friend and co-worker Adrienne who also blogs (hi, Adrienne!) joined us for the first time, too, and she fit right in since she and I are always twinning at everything in life anyway!  If you haven’t already, stop by her blog and say hi!

And since we didn’t take a group pic, here are a few candids…





T W O – A New Organizer

My girl Heather (who also has a letter board) and I had been chatting back and forth recently about how on earth to store our plastic letters, and she sent me a picture of the perfect storage box that she found at Walmart.  So what did I do?  I went and got one, too!  Hers actually has more compartments than mine, though... my Walmart only had one like hers and the latch was broken.  Waaaahhhh!  But anyway, y’all know how much I love to organize… stuff like this just makes my Type A heart so happy!  No more dumping out a bag of letters and sifting through them for 20 minutes to find what I need.  Haha.

T H R E E – Nasal Spray

Y’all, this is such a weird one, but it had to make the list because I have been so flipping miserable this week and this was the only thing that was able to alleviate my misery.  I’ve had some sort of runny nose/sneezing/ears plugged/allergy thing for the last four weeks, but the past couple of days it has turned into some sort of severe allergy thing or a cold or something.  I don’t feel bad at all, but my nose has been completely stopped up for the last 48 hours and it has been sheer misery.  I tried pseudoephedrine (the hard core stuff that I think people use to make meth.  Lol.) and it didn’t help one little bit even though Brian swears by it.  Thank the Lord for nasal spray!  It has preserved my sanity these last few days. 

F O U R – The Gym

I haven’t had a chance to go but once or twice these last couple of weeks, but boy, have I felt great on the days that I have gotten a work out in.  I’m hoping that things will finally slow down now that the birthdays and VDay are over, and hopefully I’ll be able to make it 2-3 times per week instead of 1-2.  


F I V E – Cake!

I ordered Olivia’s cakes this week and I am dying to see how they turn out!  We are having a few small family celebrations so I ordered two different cakes.  One that will look similar to this:


And then one that is going to have this image put on the top of it.  


She’s going to be so excited!

Well, we’re off to celebrate our girl!  Enjoy your day and happy weekend!

  19. Aw, those cakes are too cute. I love Beauty and the Beast. I hope Olivia has a great birthday!

    That's awesome you had a fun girl's night out. I haven't been getting out too much lately because I'm on a diet program and going places with food is kind of a bummer since I can't eat much of it. haha

  22. Can't wait to see Olivia's birthday cake! That's so cute! And when I have sinus issues, I am all about a nasal clean out like the netipot but what I use is a home remedy my mom showed me. It's something like canning salt, baking soda, and something else with distilled water. It sounds so gross because you have to shoot it up one nostril but oh my word, I feel a million times better!

  23. Even monthly margs is a great goal to have. I need to get out more!! I can't wait to see the cake!

  24. I love that you mentioned the nasal spray! That should have made my Friday Favorites this week because it helped me breathe so that I could actually sleep with this cold, congestion stuff.

    1. Haha. OMG, I have been SO stuffy. I'm so thankful for this stuff... without it I wouldn't have gotten a minute of sleep!

  25. Nasal spray and my Neti pot are some of the only ways I stay sane during a cold. Your Marg night looks like SO much fun. I need gal pals like that. None of my close friends drink :/.
