It's Fridayyyyyy! Sorry I was so absent this week; I kept telling myself I'd sit down to blog, but there just didn't seem like there were enough hours in the day this week. 

And before I begin, I just want to say that to those of you who have been, currently are or will be affected by Hurricane Matthew: you are in my thoughts and prayers. Stay safe!!! 

Okay, so let's get down to it with my five this week:  

I saw this product on Instagram and immediately fell in love with the perfect packaging. {I know, I'm a total sucker!} And after using it, I'm officially in love with it: Murchison-Hume Boys' Bathroom Cleaner. Both scents smell amazing, but I especially love the original fig scent. And you fellow boy mamas out there know what I'm talking about when I say that you need anything and everything to cover up that "boy bathroom" smell...amIright?!

Now that Walker has been in a MDO program for two years, it's high time I start organizing the sweet artwork he brings home! I don't keep everything because #hoarder, but I can't resist the precious hand print art, pictures the school sends home and the sweet paintings. I'm on the hunt for a file box with dividers, but I found these labels on Pinterest and knew I needed them for my organization! 

Special thanks to Viktor & Rolf {and Influenster} for choosing me as a winner of the Viktor & Rolf campaign...and for sending me this fabulous gift box of the Flowerbomb fragrance, shower gel and lotion! It's my favorite scent in the world and I'm so excited to have won.


Something I wish I had when Walker was a baby? This portable sound machine. Knox is clearly a second child and takes at least one of his naps a day while we're on the go. {He still takes three naps a day, but we're moving him to the six-month Baby Wise schedule next week, where he'll go down to two.} 

For example, we're still waiting for a nursery spot to open up for him during my weekly Bible Study, so since it's during his morning nap time, he sleeps {somewhat} while we're there. But this portable sound machine works wonders and lulls him to sleep in an instant, while helping to drown out background noise. It clips right onto his infant car seat, and I'll turn it on right before we head out the door; the second he hears it, he calms down and knows it's nap time. I would recommend this to any mom of littles!

Both of my boys sleep with this sound machine at home, which is a huge lifesaver in our small house where you can hear everything! I would also recommend this one to any mom of kids to have at home! We even travel with ours. Ha!

We celebrate six years of marriage on Sunday! I can't believe it, yet I am so thankful for this wonderful, God-given gift of marriage. I never understood it until I was knee-deep in it, but I truly do love and respect Brandon more than I did six years ago. We have already been through so much, and I can't wait for the next six years {and six years after that, and six years after that...}. Brandon, you're my best "yes!" Thank you for asking me to be your wife.

Linking up with: April, Andrea, Amy, Amanda, and Katie
