Five on Friday

It's already Friday again?! Where did this week go? I feel like I was just writing my Five on Friday for last week! Anyway, a super Happy Friday to you, and thanks to all of the F.O.F. hostesses: A. Liz Adventures, Carolina Charm, Hello! Happiness and [the good life blog]

My mom, dad and sister are coming to Dallas today! I haven't seen them since they left a few days after Walker was born, so to say I'm excited to see them is an understatement. And I know they're equally as excited to see the baby and love all over him. We're going to lunch this afternoon, then they are staying with us tonight. I can't wait! 

Side note: You think your house is so clean until people tell you they're coming over! I don't know about you, but I took one look around my house and Walker's morning nap yesterday turned into CLEANALLTHETHINGS. 

{Hi, Mom and Dad!}

My aunt informed me that Beauty Brands is having their annual $8.99 hairspray sale! {Is it sad when you get excited about hairspray? I'm a Texas gal through and through and gotta have my hairspray!} Anyway, I'm pretty loyal to L'Oréal's Elnett Satin Hairspray, but if Beauty Brands is going to have Sebastian Shaper on sale for $8.99, I'm buying it! 

This little cutie turned six weeks old on Wednesday. I can't believe it! I know it's super cliché, but I truly feel like those six weeks went by in a flash - weren't we just bringing him home from the hospital? Also, those cheeks and blue eyes? I die. 

Ever since I got my butt back to the gym after having Walker, I have also been entering my food daily into My Fitness Pal. While I absolutely love that it keeps me accountable for literally every single morsel of food that goes into my mouth, I feel like I'm fixated on calories all dang day. And on that note? It totally makes me want a glass of wine. Or about five cookies. Or cake. 

But in all seriousness, I feel like I'm eating better, and I've already lost two pounds. Only eight more to go to my pre-pregnancy weight and 13 more to my ideal weight! But I still want that glass of wine. 

I haven't seen "Frozen," but I have heard Adele Dazeem - I mean, Idina Menzel - sing "Let It Go." However, she was on Jimmy Fallon last week and sang the song with Jimmy and The Roots, and neither Brandon nor I can get this version out of our heads! We keep finding ourselves singing it at random times and just cracking up at each other. 

Another side note: I *heart* Jimmy Fallon. Seriously, his show cracks me up, and I love that he has clean humor. He's not nasty, tacky or mean. He's just funny! And I love when he gets so tickled at himself and can't finish a skit because he's laughing. The "hashtag" skits make me laugh so hard. "#LOL."

I hope y'all have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend! 


  1. Stopping by from the linkup! I was using myfitnesspal for 3ish weeks and it made the biggest difference in how much/what I was eating! I got lazy with it and stopped using it, but definitely want to start it up again because it really does help! I hope you have a great weekend visiting with your family in town!

  2. Stopping by from the linkup. Walker is the cutest ever!! Girl, have that glass of wine the antioxidants ate good for you ;). I love "Let It Go" and I loved that performance too. I can't wait until the movie gets released next week - so excited!!
