Friday Five

Friday, October 7, 2016

Yay it's Friday! It's been such a crazy last week, I'm so glad it's finally Friday. My parents have been on vacation and my mom typically watches Harper a day a week, so our schedules have been a little off trying to adjust so that we can be home with Harper on the days my mom would typically have her. I'm glad they were able to go on their trip, but I am also glad that they will be home and our schedule will be back to normal (as normal as our schedule ever is). So since it is Friday and I'm loving having this day to check in and give a life and favorites update this week, lets jump right in!

We are taking Harper on an overnight trip on Sunday with our best friends and their two kids. We are probably crazy taking 3 kids all under the age of 3 to Great Wolf Lodge on an overnight trip, but we're going to try it! We're already planning the post bedtime waterpark trips for the guys and girls and which drinks we should bring along! We're excited for some time away together, and you will definitely be seeing an update of how it goes soon! Here's a photo from the last time we all went to the lodge together (all before kids!).

In case you missed my post yesterday, I announced I will be participating in the One Room Challenge, hosted by Calling It Home throughout the month of October. I decided to redo our master bedroom for the challenge and can't wait to see how it all comes together!

We are excited for Mimi & Poppy to come home from their trip! We've spent this week sending lots of photos and face timing! We see them multiple times a week normally, so both Harper and I are ready for them to be home! They went to Hawaii with my aunt and uncle, who happen to be huge New York Giants fans, so of course we had to get in our Giant's gear to watch the game on Monday, and we of course had to send a photo too!
My favorite post for the week was my post on how different photography tips helped me grow my blog and Instagram. I have nearly doubled my instagram followers and more than double my likes and comments on each photo. The tips I shared are the things that have worked for me and what I use to edit and share my photos and grow my followers!

Each week, I've decided to share my favorite shop for the week and this week is definitely Eloise and I. I ordered some bandana bibs for Harper and went with the surprise 3 bib set and I couldn't be happier. When I opened the package, not only were the patterns three of my favorites to begin with but they sent them with a hand written thank you note in pretty packaging! I will absolutely be buying more!
If you'd like me to highlight your small shop in a future Friday post, please contact me!

I hope everyone has a wonderful end to their week and a fabulous weekend! Do you have any fun plans?
