Five on Friday

I've been in a writing rut lately, and stumbled upon a link-up with Darci.  Why not share with you all some of my favorite things going on lately?!


Monster Cookies.  I made these with Liv a few weeks ago, and the rain and chill that hit our world yesterday made it the perfect excuse to make them again.  The warm smell of toasty vanilla-chocolatey goodness was perfect.  And there was cookies at the end of it.  This is a win win.


School pictures.  Normally not a huge fan on the super posed pictures, this is a right of passage that I still can't believe that my baby girl is actually getting to experience.  The carefully chosen outfit, combed hair, special unicorn necklace and all.


Leggings.  Fall is the time of year when you can wear pajama pants and be totally "put together."  And I love wearing ballet flats, one because they're super simple to on and off when I've got two other bodies to get out of the house, but also, being 5' 10" I'm not exactly always trying to add to my height!


Reconnecting with my kids when I'm not at work.  I wanted to be a stay-at-home mom so I could do the fun SAHM things that you see splashed all over Pinterest.  Summer days drove us outdoors and to the pool, as it should.  Cooler, and even down-right freezing days will drag on longer than I'd like, but my glass-half-full approach is now I get to play and paint and let my littles get messy.  The house is almost always at about 40% messy, what's a few more percentage points? {you can keep track of what's I'm scheming on my Busy Body Projects board}

Getting organized.  In the same vein as staying home and inside more as the weather gets colder, that also means more messes get made and more cleaning needs to happen.  I'll never have the house that looks like a page from a Pottery Barn catalogue, but I certainly don't need to resemble some cat-lady's home who's on next week's Hoarders!
