Five on Friday

Five on Friday Link Up:

Here goes nothin'.....

I have been sick. Ugh. Don't you hate it? I am still not sure why there isn't some sort of immunity for all the mothers of the world. I DO NOT HAVE TIME FOR THIS JUNK. Am I right and can I get an Amen? I bit the bullet and called my doc and have bronchitis and a sinus infection on top of my asthma being out of control.

We had the mom's Halloween party this past Saturday night. It ended up only being 5 of us I think, but we had fun and played taboo. I just love that game! I used what I had an made myself into a gypsy.

On Sunday, we had our family Halloween party. OMG back to back. Plus this is when I started feeling yucky. Maddox was a little temper tantrum KING too so that was icing on my cupcake, y'all.
He was a little Charlie Brown for the party.

Maddox is just growing so fast. I hate it and love it at the same time. Tonight he was so stinkin cute.
He LOVES cake. I mean, devours it and uhm and yums all over the place. He said, "mama, more cake?" and I said, "no, that is the last piece baby". He replied with, "Last piece? On no! That cant be!". How funny is he? HAHAHA.

What does the fox say?

Goodbye, Friend.

I said goodbye to a sweet Arizona friend and it makes my heart sad. When we moved here, I had no one except my husband and our 11 day old son. No one. I had no one to talk to, to help me, to just listen to me, or to laugh and drink coffee with. I was completely friendless in AZ.

I don't know if you have experienced child birth or its after effects, but for me, I was horridly nervous and scared. I was very withdrawn and felt really alone. It could have to do with being in a new city with a tiny baby or not. I am not sure.

Anyway, after a few months, I found a mom group and started going, scary as it was to me at the time. I slowly made acquaintances and then a few friends and my world was a happier place. I need my girlfriends and girl time. I have always been a social person... on the days that I am not a homebody ;) HA.

This friend that moved was one of the few that was in my circle. My inner circle. I did not ever see her as much as I wanted because she traveled a lot with her family and to her extended family but when she was here it was great. She is great. She is kind, worldly, intelligent, funny, and giving. She is the kind of friend that I want to be. She is real, honest and direct without being rude or mean. She is a true and genuine soul and I am proud to call her my friend.

We celebrated her with a nice dinner at The Melting Pot. We had fun at the farm and then she and I hung out while we packed up some more of her house the day before she left for her new adventure. I will treasure her as part of my life and always consider her a sweet kindred spirit.

Did you get that? :)

Here are some cute things I have been pinning. Are you as obsessed with Pinterest as I am?

Fresh Apple Cake with Cinnamon frosting.. Uhm, get in my belly!

Awesome motor skill activity for toddlers--plus they can eat their craft in the process.

I know we are not into the Fall holidays, but this DIY reindeer is super cute and needs to make an appearance in my home!

Comfy, casual, fun, and with pearls, anything goes!
I am constantly telling myself this. I mean 1,000,000 times a day. This plus they are only little once & how much I will miss this when he is older.
Go ahead, dance like nobody's watching.... it is almost Hump Day after all.....
