Five On Friday

It's time for another edition of Five on Friday and I do hope you'll join along!

Remember, all you have to do is post about five things on your mind, add our logo (found at the bottom of this post), and join the party using the linky tools below. Easy, and a great way to find new blogs and be found. :)

It's been a WEEK, y'all, and I'm happy to see Friday. As I mentioned before, Char's eye surgery was postponed for 2 weeks due to her being sick. And the ER doc Tuesday night, who I know was trying to help, brought up some potential reasons for her delayed walking that scared the living daylights out of us (to put it mildly), so we've sort of been scrambling this week to pull strings, see docs, get some answers. I hesitated to share this because it's part of our family's business, but I also know there might be some of you who have walked or are currently walking this path -- and if there's one thing I've learned this week, it's so important to not feel alone. 

Moving on to happier news ... our new car has been AMAZING. So, so happy with the Honda Odyssey. I love the dark navy color we have, every little feature that it has is just mind-blowing to us. We aren't really "fancy" car people; we are very practical. We try to purchase smartly, take care of our cars with cleaning and maintenance, pay them off and keep them a long time. Until that dashboard is all lit up like Christmas. :)

So, all of the little bells and whistles this time around are spoiling us a little. Plus -- having it delivered to our house last Friday night was the icing on the cake! Ian had the girls up in the tub while the salesman went through the features with me in our driveway. Paperwork signed at the kitchen table. So easy. We used McKinney Salinas for the purchase.

Yesterday I built a cube organizer to add to Charlotte's closet for storage -- but sorry Char, it's already filled with baby boy clothes! We have been given so many amazing clothes and I think I'm just on the hunt now for a special coming-home outfit for baby boy. The girls wore the same pink handmade gown but we need something a little different this time around!

The softest!

I just want to shout it from the rooftops that my new nephew is due any day now! First thing I do in the mornings now is check my phone for "on the way!" texts! I'm so excited to see his sweet face, and I think he'll look like his older brother!

Anyone own this top and have feedback on it? When I saw it was on sale and then an additional 50% off today, my interest was piqued. Plus ... machine washable. Torn on whether to order regular or petite size? With some big earrings, definitely my style!


That's it for today! Hope you have a lovely weekend -- NO LINKUP today due to a technical glitch, so please leave your blog post link in the comments!


  1. I hope you get some answers for sweet Charlotte! That little Kissy Kissy outfit is adorable!!

  3. I hope all is well with Char!

  4. Hoping you find the answers you need for your sweet Charlotte. Thinking of you all! And a huge CONGRATS on your new ride! We are the same exact way with our cars. I'm sure you'll find the Odyssey so useful!

    1. Oops -- forgot my link to Five on Friday! Here we go. :)

  5. Prayers for Charlotte. She is such a cutie.

  6. I hope you get all the answers you need for Charlotte and I hope the surgery helps in two weeks! I also really like that top!! Not something I would normally go for in the store, but I'm interested to see how it looks on! :) Link up for 5 on Friday:

  7. Congrats on the new van. There's nothing like that new car smell. I ordered that black top a while back. It's cute, but it runs big. I'd say order the petite. I ended up returning it. If you want to see how it looked on I did a post with it. Happy weekend!

  8. I hope that Charlotte is healing quickly and you get some answers.

  9. Sending prayers your way!
    I'm needing to find a special 'coming home' outfit as well. Almost 5 weeks left!!

  10. I brought my daughter home in this outfit which I think works for a girl or boy!

  11. Praying for your family.

  12. We've bee in the ER a few times with our kiddos and I swear the ER docs are trained to think of worst case scenarios! I hope you've been able to get some answers this week. Prayers for your family!

  13. That outfit for baby boy to wear home is completely precious!

  14. I had a delayed walker too! I hope you can get some answers so you don’t have the anxiety of wondering what if she has XYZ. One thing that helped me was getting second opinions just for reassurance. In our case our daughter was just a delayed walker

  15. Sending only positive thoughts and hoping for answers.

  16. Hope all goes well with the little one!

  17. Sorry that you all are going though that. I’m sure it is stressful! I hope you get answers soon!

  18. HooebyallHhave had a refreshing weekend! I know that is so stressful with your sweet girl. Hopefully you'll get some answers soon. And you are not kidding about Kissy Kissy being THE SOFTEST baby clothes around!
