The Adventure Starts Here: Five on Friday

Five on Friday

Even though it was a short week, we still had lots to keep us busy.  Noah had a runny nose and cough all last weekend and then he started complaining that his ear hurt (I can't believe he's now able to actually tell me these things!).  So I took him into the doctor to have his ears checked on Tuesday.  The doctor said that it wasn't an infection (at least it wasn't one yet) and that the pain was probably a result of his congestion.  She suggested trying Mucinex and Benadryl (at night) but wrote me a prescription for an antibiotic in case his ears got worse.  Thankfully I haven't had to use it yet and he's slowly getting better.   Thank goodness because we have a very busy weekend planned with multiple dinners and get togethers with friends.   I'll be sure to give you a full recap next week!  Have a great weekend!


Noah LOVES to help me bake.  This past Christmas, we got him a Santa apron and hat from Target.  He loved wearing it so much that he's been wearing it ever since, even though Christmas is over!  I went looking at Target again, but had no luck.  Instead, we ordered this cute apron from Amazon.  


Tuesday was Mardi Gras.  While we didn't do anything crazy in order to get some beads, we did eat some pancakes!  I assumed this was a common tradition, but when Chris looked at me like I was crazy, I realized this could be something just my family did! My mom was going to come over and make us some for lunch, but then Noah fell asleep on the way home from the doctor.  So instead, we had pancakes for dinner... yummy!


This week, we got together with some friends of ours for a play date.  We met them in our old town and they just bought a house in our new town too!  The little boy is 6 months older than Noah and is now talking up a storm, and in full sentences.  When we got there he immediately said "Noah, come see my playroom".  After playing trains for a while, they played the super fun game of, throw the ball down the hallway, chase after it, and laugh hysterically while running back... and repeat!  I think the best line of the day was when his friend said "I'm having too much fun!".


I used to be the mom that brought snacks for Noah whenever we went out.  Then as he got older and didn't need as much in the diaper bag, I started slacking.  Normally it isn't a problem until he sees his friends (who have prepared mommies) snacking on something yummy.  He then all of a sudden becomes the starving kid who has to beg for food.  The other moms are of course kind and share with him, but then I feel bad!  Well, the other day one of my friends had these bagel crisps in her bag and Noah loved them!  Of course I ran out and got a few bags and I am now prepared to feed my starving child ;)


I saw this article on Facebook a little while ago and thought it was HILARIOUS!  If I'm being honest, Noah is actually a pretty good eater compared to some of these scenarios.  But #5 (below) definitely happens around here A LOT!

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. Stopping by from the link up! Hope your lit'l guy is feeling all better soon! Pancakes for dinner sounds delish! :) Have a lovely weekend!!

  2. I saw that same article on Facebook and literally almost peed my pants reading through it! It is all so true!

  3. HAHAHAH! That article and #5. YES! Happens to us all the time. Mason LOVED asparagus earlier this week. So I gave him it again the next day. LOVE. Then the next, wouldn't touch it. What the heck kid??

  4. Nice post and also, awesome name ... (Noah!) - Also my son's name! :) I'm new to bloglovin' and randomly came across your blog. I will be sure to follow along! :)

    I am at:

    Hope you will visit! I also write about my adventures as a new mommy!


  5. My neighbor does the pancake thing too and I'd never heard of it. She said she assumed it was a religious thing related to the fast. People made pancakes to use up ingredients in the pantry...? Still clueless, but I'll eat pancakes any day!

  6. Also, kinda funny but when I saw the chips I was thinking, "Yeah, good luck mom, he probably won't eat them if he has his own bag", then I see your #5. Obviously we've experienced that in our house, lol!
