Five on Friday

Whooohooo!  It's FRIDAY!!! It's been a long week and I'm so excited to see the weekend!  I'm linking up with the girls for another 5 on FRIDAY!!! Here goes...

We have a bird that makes a nest on one of our outdoor fans every single year.  She's a nuisance--drives me crazy.  Last year I got rid of the nest, but this year I was too late, she hatched her eggs and before I knew it, we had a little quad group of birdies.  They've been making a mess, but it's fun to watch them when their momma comes home with lunch.  I'm hoping they fly the coop very, very soon so I can get rid of that nasty nest!

How true is this.....
If you don't have a copy of UNDECORATE by Christine Lemieux then go getcha a copy!  It's the no-rules guide to making your house a home.  Over the last few years, I've found it's easier for me to do what I love in my home and abandon those design constraints I once held tightly to.  The result: I love my home because it's ME and not someone else's definition of design!

In other news, JoJo has begun to like tolerate her sippy cup a little more these days.  This is a small step for some, but a GIANT step for us.  

My sister sent this to me and I LOVE it...

Mommy wars ain't gonna get me down!!!

I'm cracking up at this poster.  Some moms can make you feel so bad about choices you make or don't make.  I can tell you for certain--I AIN'T down with placenta consumption, but I'm a decent mom nonetheless!  To each her own!  lol.

Thanks for stopping by for my FIVE ON FRIDAY!!  Come back next Wednesday for our second WHAT YOU WISH WEDNESDAY link-up. Thanks to those of you who linked up this week.  It was a lot of fun!

Have a GREAT weekend!


  1. Just found your blog. Love the name, your girls are precious! :)

  2. Awww! Those birdies! They're cute but yes that would drive me nutso too! Thanks for sharing that book Undecorate! I might have to look into that! Especially because I'm not unexperiences and unknowledgable about how to decorate! Haha :) I hope you have a great holiday weekend!

  3. It's a great book, Julie!!! It's a must. You have a great Memorial Day, too!

  4. Thanks for stopping by, Amber! Hope to get to know you better.

  5. Amen to that Whole Foods photo! I love that place, but we just can't afford to shop there much.
    I hope for your sake the birds leave the nest soon. They are a messy creature.
    I'll have to check out that book too. And I just don't know about the whole placenta thing.....I think it's a bit much for me.
    Have a great weekend Leslie!

  6. Me either, Tiffany!!! No placenta consumption around here. The poster is meant to be an encouragement for moms that don't do all of this new cooky stuff, but are still good moms regardless! lol. I know what you mean about Whole Foods. Good and healthy, but PRICEY!

  7. I know what you mean about the birds. We have nest on our front porch. So messy! I have seen that book recommended a few times. I need to go get a copy! Have a great weekend!

  8. Oh, the birds build a nest on our front door wreath. It is so, so aggravating but, as you said, the little birdies are so cute!

    What a cute, cute book!

    My daughter is moving to Mt. Pleasant next week, so perhaps you and I get to meet face to face some time later in the summer.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  9. That card is AMAZING! I literally laughed out loud:)

  10. bahahah #5. Gross, and awesome. =) Mommy wars can be so silly and yet so mean.

    Aww birdies! Time to spike the fan?! After they fly away this year that is... =)

  11. Courtney...I'm clueless. What's "spiking the fan"? Do tell!!!

  12. Nikki, you'd love UNDECORATE! Such a good book to have on hand.

  13. Haha didn't mean to confuse. Just like the power boxes they put spikes on to keep birds from electrocuting themselves. Or maybe tiny scarecrows on each blade.


I'd love to hear from you. Please leave me a comment.

For our joy and His glory,
