Happy Friday! 

I finally bit the bullet and ordered Walker's first year book! It was a lot of time and effort, but I am so excited he will have this book to look back on the first year of his life...especially since we don't print pictures out for photo albums like we did I was a baby! 

I have used iPhoto to make photo books since college, and I'm always more than impressed with their quality and timeliness. Plus, it doesn't hurt that all of my photos are already in iPhoto when I plug in my iPhone or memory card from my good camera! 

Creating this book made my heart melt at his little, itty bitty newborn squishiness. When they say it goes by so fast, they aren't joking! {In all of these pictures he is less than one week old!}

I picked up this shampoo and conditioner on a whim at Target the other day, and holy amazingness does it smell AWESOME. I keep getting whiffs of my hair and love it. Ha! 

Speaking of Target and buying things on a whim, I bought this bathing suit - but in pink - on Tuesday when I ventured out because of cabin fever. My plan is to wear it on our trip to Jamaica this summer, even though I'm terrified of how I'm going to look in a bikini. {Eeeeek!} 

I'm still going strong on my no-wine Lent! And in fact, I haven't even had a sip of alcohol, and truth be told, my skin is looking a ton better, I've lost two pounds and I'm sleeping more soundly. I'm really proud of myself for sticking to it - because goodness knows my job is super stressful and that glass of wine at night after a hectic day is always a welcomed way to take the edge off. Maybe next year I'll give up carbs or something else I love for my daily reminder why I'm giving it up!

{Although apparently if you give up alcohol for Lent, you're an alcoholic, or so I've been told. Insert eye-roll emoji and a string of laughter here. I guess if you give up sugar, you're obese or shopping you have compulsive buying disorder.} 

This time next week, I will be on Spring Break. I cannot wait! This is what we have planned:

Linking up with: 

Amy and Karli



  1. Well done on the no wine my friend - and have a happy weekend x

    1. Thank you! Surprisingly, I haven't missed it! (We'll see how I'm doing in about three weeks. Ha!) Happy Weekend!

  2. Aww Walker is so cute and tiny in those first week pictures! I never knew iPhoto had a book service, that's neat. Good job on the no wine lady! Have a good weekend!

  3. I've actually checked out that shampoo/conditioner several times, but haven't made the purchase yet. Glad to hear you like it! Does it add any volume to fine hair? I'm in desperate need of it!

  4. I hope you have an excellent spring break! What a great idea to do a photo book for the 1st year. I really need to do something like that for Kane. And I love that swimsuit!!!

    Thanks for joining us for H54F:)
