Five on Friday

Happy Friday, friends!

And happy happy first day of SUMMER!

Linking up with A. Liz Adventures, Carolina Charm, Hello! Happiness and The Good Life Blog for another 5 on Friday!


So excited to see some emails come through with pictures for the Bella Carta giveaway! Don't forget to email me your pictures by July 1st to be entered!


New words! I've mentioned before that A's speech is something we've struggled with, but ever since his birthday in April, he's been talking non stop. Just this week he's learned 9 new words! Nothing makes my momma heart swell like hearing him say new words & phrases!

This week's he's learned: push, pull, green, more, please, baby, bus, baseball and hockey!


We are having family pictures taken this weekend, with our very favorite photographer, Bryan! He not only photographed our wedding, but has done A's newborn, 6-month and 1-year pictures! So thankful for a good weather forecast for tomorrow, and fingers crossed for A to be easy going for a few hours!

Can you believe this picture was taken almost a year ago!? Where does the time go?


We had such a wonderful Father's Day last weekend. I have yet to upload my "real" pictures, but here's one of my favorites from last Sunday.

Yes, he thinks he's a dog sometimes. Okay, more than sometimes.


A bloggy-break. That's what I'm giving myself next week. Some time away from the computer to catch up on life and enjoy playing outside with my favorite little guy. I'll be back soon, I promise!

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Nine new words! That's great! Go A!!

    I'm going to miss your posts while you're on a break, but I completely understand!

  2. Sending pics your way now, I keep forgetting! LOVE all the pics on this post, seriously so cute!!! But that pic of A a year ago is sooo good! He is such a doll! GOOOOO A, 9 new words, and how great that he is using some verbs adjectives and nouns!

  3. Can't wait to see the family pictures! Have a great blog break enjoying your summer and your family!


Thank you for your comments! I read each and every one of them!
