The Adventure Starts Here: Five on Friday

Five on Friday

Happy Friday!  We had a pretty fun week.  We had a few play dates and went to our usual Gymboree class (and go to Wompy's today).  Chris actually got home on time a few nights and I was able to go to a MOMS night out activity last night where we learned how to do calligraphy.  Here's another super random "five" for you!  


This week we went to the Barnes & Noble with friends for story time.  It was so cute to see Noah and his friend sitting so nicely listening.  Noah didn't last long though ;)


For my brother's wedding next week, I will be going to get a blow out with my mom, sister, and one of Luke's friends from college.  It will be my first time going to a blow out bar and I'm really looking forward to it!  I can't decide whether to get the beach waves or the traditional voluminous blow out.  I'm also thinking of having my "bangs" braided.  


I've really been loving the graphic tees and pajamas at Old Navy recently.  In the past I've always liked Gap for Noah, but right now I've been preferring Old Navy.  They have some super cute things and the prices can't be beat!


Speaking of graphic tees, I've become a fan of them for myself as well.  I never used to be into them, but I've liked JCrew and Old Navy's selection this past summer.  I think I'll have to add this Christmas inspired t-shirt to my collection!  I can just imagine wearing it under a chunky cardigan.  


Finally, I've definitely started thinking about Christmas.  We are putting up the outside lights this weekend and will put up our Christmas tree on Wednesday.  Last year, since we were in the apartment, we just had a small tree that sat on a table.  This year we will have a full size tree, and I'm honestly not sure how Noah will react.  I am fully prepared for him to want to touch it and every ornament on it.  I have purchased a few felt ornaments and plan to decorate the bottom part of the tree with those.  But I'm also wondering if we might need to build a tree gate of sorts to keep him away.  I found this on Pinterest and think it's genius!

I'm linking up with The Farmer's Wife and September Farm for "Oh Hey Friday"

I'm also linking up with DarciAprilChristina and Natasha's blogs for their Five on Friday!


  1. Personally I think the classic blow-out would look great. But if you're going to do the braid then I think the beach waves would look best!

  2. I have never had a blow out, but I imagine it would be so fun! Can't wait to see what you choose!
    Oh and Old Navy... amazing! They are having various things on sale and today I got Mason 5 pairs of jeans for 50% each. Normally $16 and now $8! For the next 5 days they are having different things on sale. I think pjs are coming soon!
