5 on Friday


What a busy week this has been! It has gone by fast this week, which is always welcome when Corey is away. Madeline has thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful weather and spending them playing outside on her new playset. If you missed it in my stories, this was a major impulse by at Costco and had a pretty big instant rebate this week.


Madeline got her first pair of Mini Melissa’s. This is far more than I normally spend on shoes for her but I couldn’t resist this Beauty and the Beast design. She realized immediately that they smell like candy and now she requests them as soon as she wakes up every morning. It is pretty adorable but I hope the obsession with smelling her shoes wears off before she wears them outside for the first time. Haha! 


A new rolled ice cream place opened up near our house a few weeks ago and Madeline and I tried it out yesterday for a little ice cream date. She thoroughly enjoyed it. The process was prettt cool to watch but I still think I old fashioned, home style ice cream places better. 


We are excited for Mother’s Day this weekend. My parents and Corey’s mom are coming over for Sunday dinner and he is planning something delicious and top secret, he says. The best part is being able to have dinner guests in our home without me having to do any prep or cleanup. I know all the mamas agree! 


If you haven’t checked out my Go Gray in May group, it kicked off this week and I would be so grateful to have you. This group is in honor of national brain cancer awareness month, which many of you know is a cause so near and dear to our family's hearts. I'll be hosting a few giveaways of Beautycounter products and my first giveaway is coming up in the next couple days. 


  1. Mini Melissa's are the best! There is a BST group on facebook for them too. Just saying.

  2. She is so cute on her play set and grill! I hope you have a fabulous Mother’s Day weekend!

  3. This is the first I've heard of Mini Melissa. Those are darling shoes!

  4. Oh my gosh, she is hilarious with those shoes! It sounds like you have a fun Mother's Day lined up too! Happy Mothers Day!

  5. This is so cute and she is adorable!
