Five on Friday

Happy Friday, y'all!

Special thanks to the hostesses A. Liz Adventures, Carolina Charm, Hello! Happiness!, and [the good life blog]

Brandon has been traveling on business this week, and I now have a newfound respect for single moms! He left Sunday for Baltimore, Richmond and Washington, D.C., and we are definitely ready for him to come home! 

I must say, I'm definitely tired holding down this fort with a three-week-old all by myself. I think a nap will be in my very near future when Brandon walks in that door!  


Walker met his future wife this week! {Kidding. Sort of.} My friend and co-worker, Liz, had her baby girl, Peyton, two days before I had Walker, and we are both convinced that we are arranging this marriage! 

Since it was their "first date," he and I bought lunch {Chick-fil-A} and went to Liz's house for a little meet-and-greet. AKA: Mommies catching up, holding and feeding babies and doing a ton of gossiping. :)

To give me a little break this week, my mother-in-law popped over yesterday and let me get a {much-needed} manicure and pedicure. ALONE. It was amazing! Brandon purchased me a little gift certificate for the mani/pedi for Valentine's Day, and I couldn't resist putting it to good use…and enjoying a glass of wine while there. The place I go to gives you shoulder massage when you purchase a manicure, and I'm not kidding, I had to repeat to myself over and over, "Do not fall asleep! Enjoy this!" Ha! 

Once they finished, I was so tired that I popped into Starbucks for a coffee; I don't think I would have made it through the rest of the day without it! 

Is it just me, or is anyone else really over the Winter Olympics? I've always been more of a Summer Olympics gal myself, to tell you the truth. But! I watch them during primetime and then they're on again when I'm feeding Walker around 1-2 a.m., so I am just getting double the exposure. I will say, though, I'm getting a huge kick out of Ashley Wagner's "Not Impressed" facial expressions. Girl does not have a very good poker face! 



I ordered Walker's Easter basket from Pottery Barn Kids the other day and I just love the way it turned out! Before I was pregnant, I would peruse the site and catalog and just obsess over the cute little Easter baskets and couldn't wait to order one for our children one day! 

I can't wait to fill this sweet basket with all of his first Easter goodies in April and experience his first Easter egg hunt…even though he'll be nearly three months old and let's face it, I'll be the one bending over putting eggs in this basket. Ha! 

I hope y'all have a great weekend! We're celebrating Brandon's return home tonight with a grill out and some vino -- it's absolutely gorgeous in Dallas and we're going to soak up this spring-like weather!
