Five on... Saturday!

Saturday, May 12, 2018

Yay, it's the weekend! Mother's Day weekend at that. What are your plans? Last night we had our neighbors over for pizza & drinks and let the kids run around the backyard. Good thing, too, because it looks like it was the last nice day for a while! The 10 day forecast is full of thunderstorms and rain. We were unsure what we would do this weekend and I think that after all the deliberation the plan is -- no plan! Which is fine by me. We live about 2 hours away from our moms so instead of fighting extra traffic and booked up restaurants this weekend, we'll celebrate them both next week. :) As for me, a weekend with no plans is a gift in and of itself!

Since I didn't get around to posting a Five on Friday yesterday, consider this my Five on Saturday instead:

1. Mother's Day Tea. I attended a mother's day tea (aka mini muffins and iced tea!) at C's preschool and it was the cutest thing ever. The kids all came and escorted us from the door to our seats, handing us a paper flower "corsage." Then they put on the most adorable rendition of The Very Hungry Caterpillar I've ever seen and sang songs. So much fun to spend that special time with my biggest girl.

2. A New IG Account/Blog to Follow. I love discovering new content that inspires me and is different, and I recently came across the IG account Design Addict Mom. She isn't afraid of bold splashes of color, which is quite opposite my decorating/dressing personality which is usually drawn to neutrals -- but I LOVE her style and I think you will too! Sometimes it's so refreshing to peruse style that may not be your own but that you admire and may be able to take some pointers from.
3. Omg these goggles. This shop has some of the cutest kids' stuff ever, but is way expensive. But every so often I come across something that is (almost) irresistible. How cute and unique are these goggles for the summer? 

4. You need to try this soup. I know I've mentioned this Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana soup recipe here before, but if you haven't tried it yet -- you need to! It's easy, delicious, and goes great with a crusty loaf of bread. It's on regular rotation over here. Let me know if you try it!

5. Have a great weekend and cheers to all the mommas out there (especially mine)!


  1. Oh I want to try that soup. It looks really good. I love those goggles, but I am sooo afraid to check out the store because I will want it all but I fear the pricing as you said. Ha.

    1. Haha, I don't blame you -- it's one of those stores that sucks you in. Their stuff is the CUTEST, but probably not the most practical. Fun to look at all the same. ;) If you try the soup, let me know what you think! It's always a winner in our house.
