It's been a while since I've had time to put together a post for Five on Friday. This working full-time thing is getting in the way of my blogging. Thankfully I try to find a little time at night to catch up on some blogs so I'm not totally out of the loop with what's going on and what the cool kids are up to! ha! Thanks to Darci, Natasha, April, and Christina for hosting!
On Sunday we had our annual spa day with my mom and sister, my bff and her mom. We've done it for years and this may have been my favorite year ever! We met for brunch with mimosas and champagne and then went to the spa at Hotel Hershey. I'm usually pretty picky about spa services, but I had a great massage. I think being non-stop everyday from 5:30am-8pm would make any massage seem heavenly! The best part of the Hershey Spa is that after your service you sit around in your robe, read magazines and chat.
|this is exactly how we looked on sunday!|
On Wednesday evening we decided we should muster up all of our energy and take Carter to a local fair. We met our friends and watched a tractor parade. Carter ran around and climbed on construction equipment, and saw cows, goats, sheep, and pigs. Luckily Christian was holding him for the live animal part and encouraging him to feed the cows and touch the sheep. That's not really my thing! ha!
There's another fair this weekend that we may go to as well and that one is less farm-focused and more about the fried foods and games. Funnel cakes and corn dogs sound good to me!
Toddler fall clothes
I totally took advantage of the gap 40% promotion the other week. I got Carter some cute new clothes. But-----big problem. The 12-18 month pants are too short! What?! The waists are big but he's stuck in a flood. Not cute. I've been dressing him in shorts and long sleeves for a few weeks trying to avoid the pant problem. But I think it's time to put the shorts away and figure out these pants.
I also got him his first pair of Toms, I actually ordered two pairs because I couldn't decide on the brown or navy. And he's between sizes in those too! This weekend I'll decide which ones we'll keep.
Our neighbor has mini pumpkins in a planter and every day at least once a day Carter runs over and says "ap-pul" as he hands me every pumpkin and then puts each one back. So I broke down and bought Carter his very own small "ap-pul" at the grocery store. I broke my own rule and bought a pumpkin before October at the grocery store. We'll definitely be making a trip to a pumpkin patch and buy a bunch more in October!
Daily iced coffee(s)
Now that I'm no longer nursing and I go non-stop all day I treat myself to 2 cups of iced coffee- Starbucks French Roast or Starbucks Vanilla. I started adding a little cinnamon for a little change and since reading an article about how Splenda is not so good for you, I've been experimenting with Truvia and sugar. What do you use to sweeten your coffee? I don't know what I'd do without our Keurig!
