Back again for another installment of the Five on Friday Link Up Festivities! Last week, we had more than 250 ladies participate…so excited to see so many new faces out there joining in on the fun! Make sure to visit April, Christina, and Darci out too.
Paula Deen’s Lasagna / Tasty Trials Family Style Lasagna
Rodan + Fields are the infamous makers of Proactiv, but now are back focusing on targeting the aging market. They have products that help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, sun/age spots, eczema, rosacea, and are great for people with sensitive skin. Even better, Melody has graciously offered to waive the $19.95 enrollment fee for anyone that signs up as a Preferred Customer-you also get 10% off all products and free shipping, too! Feel free to email her if you have any questions or wish to order.
THREE. Birthday Week Shenanigans
To say we have been celebrating my birthday would be an understatement…I feel so fortunate that my friends and family have gone above and beyond to show me all sorts of love this week as I turned the big 3-0. I woke up to sweet cards and coffee Wednesday morning, complete with bagels and mimosas from our wonderful Alex, and then that night Jeff and I ventured to Husk for a proper dinner date.
For those that haven’t heard of Husk, it’s the same infamous restaurant originally from Charleston and they recently opened another location here in Music City. It was ranked one of the top 10 restaurants in the US and it definitely didn’t disappoint. The cocktails were outstanding and the food was incredible…a lot of ingredients and options you can’t find anywhere else so it was a fun experience!
FOUR. The Mixie
Though Carson is on 100% mama milk right now, I found this AMAZING product and couldn’t wait to share about it…I wish I had known about this lifesaver when Caroline was a tiny one, but I know this will come in handy soon! It’s called the Mixie and it’s a bottle and formula dispenser all in one. You can fill it with water in advance and put formula powder in the bottom compartment. Once you’re ready to feed, you push the button and voila…a perfectly mixed bottle! It doesn’t get any easier, right? I bet some of yall think I am crazy when I talk about these handy dandy gadgets, but these types of things make life SO MUCH easier with a baby and I want to pay it forward to yall, too!
FIVE. Back to School Shopping
I was the kid who couldn’t wait to go back to school shopping when I was growing up. Perusing the aisles of my favorite stores (Office Max/Target/Staples) to get the latest and greatest gadgets for the first day of school…seriously, I got PUMPED! Not to mention a new backpack, lunch box, AND new markers-hold me back friends. Now that Caroline is officially enrolled to start a Mother’s Day Out next month, I can’t wait to get the official supply list so we can stock up and send our girl off to “school” in fashion. I am a total nerd, I know.
Hope yall all have a WONDERFUL weekend!!! I am spending the day getting ready for my big party tomorrow night and cannot wait to see what Jeff and his party planners have in store for our guests..I know it’s going to be TONS OF FUN and I promise a full recap to come next week. OXOX
