Five on Friday

I'm so excited to be back with April and the other lovely ladies of Five on Friday! Simple rules - just list five things that are on your mind! 


We're already looking forward to the 2015 Football Season.  Each day that they hire another amazing specialist/coach for Michigan we just feel the itch to sit in our seats cheering for our boys in maize and blue. Great things are coming from Coach Harbaugh and the Wolverines...


Play dates these days are a necessity. BG has energy to burn and this mama can only provide so much entertainment for him! Thanks for the pic, Allie!!


BG has had major sleep issues lately. I read this article and it brought me some comfort that it is in fact just another lovely stage of sleep regression.  The last one though!  He will wake in the middle of the night just sobbing and when I enter the room he instantly starts rambling "I go Cincinnadi! Monster truck drives outside.  Emery kiss ME." Wide awake at 3am. Not cool.  Thankfully after some snuggles he's able to settle back to sleep until the actual morning.


I had a mini-makeover this week. A new friend of mine, Megin, is a top-notch makeup artist for Giorgio Armani and I asked her in July if she'd teach me how to do a five minute face. Well, it's January and I finally made the time to learn this new-to-me facial routine. I plan to blog more in depth about it once I get used to the new products and steps but I can tell you that I learned a lot! I actually did it myself for the first time this morning and it turned out pretty well...thankfully I took this picture after she finished so I'd know what the steps were!!!


I'm doing whole30 again.  I miss creamy dreamy coffee in the morning and popcorn/pretzels for an evening snack.


  1. new follower from the link up!

    1. Thanks for popping by! Isn't it just so much fun to find new blogs through this linkup??

  2. Just curious with the whole 30 why they say no beans ? We eat them quite a bit as a meat alternative. I've heard no ---everything else on the list, but that's a new one for me so I wondered what the reasoning behind was? Great blog : )

    1. My understanding is that legumes overall are very high in carbohydrates which is the main reason they are restricted from the diet. It's basically 30 days of everything I love being off limits! :) We were vegetarians for quite some time believe it or not and this diet has really thrown us for a loop....but it works for me so I keep coming back for more!
