High Five For Friday

Friday, May 24, 2013

Happy Weekend All! Even better, Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

It’s been quite the week (man, I always sound like a broken record) and I am thrilled that Friday is finally here!!!

Here are the top 5 moments from this week:

1.) A much needed pedicure – enough said! I have officially reached the point in my pregnancy where it is an extreme workout for me to try and paint my own toes. Huge bummer that I have to get regular pedicures now. J

2.) The book Pinkalicious, it must have been written about my life.

3.) You see that little bump in the blanket? That would be our little pup JoJo hiding from our house guest, Riley. We’ve been watching our friends’ sweet dog (seriously Riley is the sweetest dog ever) and JoJo just isn’t interested in hanging out with her. It might have something to do with the fact that she is about 10 times his size.

4.) And speaking of said house guest, here is Riley in JoJo’s smallest bed. To Riley, if it’s a bed, it doesn’t matter the size she can still fit in it.

5.) We had an awesome leadership meeting at church last night where we talked about growth and really expanding to reach more people. I love being a part of a church that doesn’t just want to stay where they are, but is excited to get larger!

I hope you all had a great week and that you have an even better weekend. I'm linking up with Lauren Elizabeth for this High Five For Friday post.


Today I have an awesome little lady to introduce you to who not only has her own blog, but also has her own Etsy shop! (side note, I’m currently in LOVE with Etsy for decorating the nursery) This fab lady is none other than Eva from Snappee Turtle.  Is that not the cutest name for a blog and Etsy shop ever? There is a meaning behind it. In Eva’s Etsy shop you will find hair accessories which are magnetically interchangeable and they snap together. In coming up with a name, she thought of many things that snap and landed on a snapping turtle – and the name was born!

Eva’s blog is filled with so many great stories about her life with her incredible family (and super cute daughter). She offers up some humor, because we all need to relax and not take ourselves too seriously. Check out this post on how to take a selfie. I promise you will laugh and smile. And I’m sure we have all been through exactly what Eva talks about. I love it when blogs get real and write about things we all go through! In addition to her humor, Eva also blogs about serious issues and her faith. This blog post about getting too comfortable with someone and taking a bad day out on them really got me thinking about how I react to the closest people in my life. Wise words there Eva – keep on convicting me, I definitely needed to read it.

And while you are over checking out Eva’s little corner of the internet, please stop by her Etsy shop. She has some pretty great things on there. I am particularly loving this and this. Eva is most certainly creative and I so appreciate her use of color in her designs. Enjoy your stay over at Snappee Turtle, I know you won’t be disappointed.
