Five on Friday

Linking up with these ladies again...

Party Prep

I rolled 60 forks today while watching one episode of Orange is the New Black during Brody's nap and I felt so accomplished :)  I'm almost finished with Season One of OITHNB and I'm so excited that there is another season waiting for me!!

Entertaining Tips

Speaking of parties, I absolutely love Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere and she wrote the perfect post for entertaining advice yesterday.   She hosts lots of little soiree's and she's so talented and classy.  I definitely respect her advice and these tips are great for a small dinner party or even a large birthday party.

Blue Print Cleanse

I love me some green juice and I try to juice at home as much as possible, but sometimes you just need to break down and purchase a full days cleanse.  These feel so great to do (I've only done 2 days, but I had wished I had 3 days worth of juices) and they taste delicious as well!  They're offering 20% off with the code SUMMER2014 if you order before the end of the month!  Get yours now.

Human Emoticons

So this one day, a few days ago, I was on a group text with two of my friends talking about their birthdays that are a day apart and our text quickly turned to human emotions... Nothing says, "I'm so sad you're not going to be here for my birthday, " quite like the real face.  These human emojis quickly became my favorite way to communicate and I realized I have the coolest/smartest friends ever!!!  Start making your own EMOJIS people!!! Your friends and family will be happy to see your face!


My friend, Morganshared this article on Facebook yesterday and I think it can hit home with a lot of Mommies out there that stay at home with their sweet babies.  Motherhood can be lonely and leave you longing for adult interaction and it's important to force yourself to be social and find your niche.  Remember: Happy Mommy makes for happy children, happy husband, and happy life!!!! :)  Go find your happy.  This blog makes me happy and smile every day as well as taking my son to playdates, music class, the pool and squeezing in some gym time for myself.  That glass (or two) of wine at the end of the day with my husband after my sons asleep makes me happy too!!

What makes you happy???

  1. Oh my gosh you and your friends are so funny - that's a group text it would have been fun to be part of!! How was the cleanse...was it hard to not eat - are you seeing results after two days?! Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. Those human emoticons are too funny! And yay on the party prep!!

  3. I love the human emojis haha!! So clever! And I can see how this article can relate to a lot of moms. I also work from home 1/2 the time and I feel this way sometimes as well.

  4. Hahahaha those emojis!! Dying :) have been so intrigued by that cleanse - great to hear you like it! Happy weekend!

  5. I would love to try those juices but I'm sure it gets expensive. I broke our juicer so I haven't had a juice in awhile and I'm missing it! Have a good weekend!

  6. Okay the human Emoji thing is hilarious! Haha I laughed out loud! And I seriously need to start watching OITNB- everyone I know is loving it!

    Stopping by from Lauren's link up! Have a great weekend! :)

  7. I love your party color combo and the fact that you are a multi-tasker like me :) I've always wanted to try a juice cleanse so thank for passing on the sale. I am going to check out the lonely mom article because I'm a new stay at home mom this year. I have to make conscious efforts to socialize, get out and about and remember to do the things that make me happy. A happy mom = a happy home!

  8. I totally just cut out hearts, taped them to my eyes and sent them to my girlfriends ;) Have a great weekend (Clearly it's a slow work day for me today!)

  9. you're going to LOVE season two of OITNB. even better than season one!
    and you're lucky to have such super fun friends! :)

  10. I cannot wait to see more of this party!! What a lucky little guy!! Love the human emojis - so funny. Thanks for sharing the post about entertaining. It is something I want to do more of!

  11. We're almost done with the first season of OITNB, too! We are trying to take our time because there isn't much else on in the summer haha. Love the human emoticons - reminds me of Snap Chat! Happy Sunday :)

  12. I am obsessed with OITNB! I watched the entire second season in a day and a half (thank you work from home day). Also love the idea of doing a cleanse, but I'm a total chicken and never go through with it other than green smoothies I make at home. Enjoying following the blog!

  13. Yay! I get so happy when I hear that other people are loving OITNB. My husband thinks it's ok, but he doesn't like it. So, I'm always looking for people to share my excitement. haha
