Five on Friday

I haven't done a Five on Friday in a long time!  I have a few random things to share with you today, so I thought I would pull one together.  Also wanted to thank all of you for your sweet comments from yesterday's pregnancy post!! I'm glad ya'll got a few laughs and enjoyed it.  Pregnancy is an amazing thing for sure, but it's not for the faint of heart :)

Here we go:

I am so excited that the World Cup is on!!  I love watching the US Women's National Team compete during the Olympics and the World Cup.  Did any of you watch the game this week against Australia???  We won!  Brody was pretty stoked :)  I've mentioned in a post awhile back about my love for soccer in my youth and even though I haven't played in awhile, watching these games always brings back lots of memories!  We play Japan tonight at 8pm EST, so be sure to cheer them on!!

I made Natalie's recipe for this Soba Noodle Salad with Peanut Dressing this week and it was quite tasty.  I knew my husband wouldn't be a fan because he's lamo like that when it comes to good healthy food, but I scarfed mine up!!  I added some roasted peanuts to ours and a little rotisserie chicken.  I would recommend both of those!

If you follow @HomeofMalones on Instagram, you saw that I loaded up on some pink items for baby Madelyn from PBKids this week!  That boppy cover and Halo sleep sack were some of my favorite things we had for Brody when he was a baby.  That sleep sack works miracles!  The other one I linked to was also perfect because it was a lighter weight material and was good for the first two or three months.  The heavy weight material was good for months 3-6 when they are a little stronger and trying to break out of their swaddles more!!

Boppy Slipcover // Halo Chamois Sleepsack (I also love this one which is a lighter weight fabric) // Gingham Hooded Towel // Plaid Beach Hat and Diaper Cover

Hubby and I have a hard time finding TV that we both like.  We typically rent movies because Matt hates TV series that never end.  He can't stand to wait a week between every show and then be left with an end-of-season cliff hanger only to have to wait a year for the next season.  It annoys me, but I get it.  These damn producers just suck you in.  Anyway, I finally talked him into watching Bloodline with me on Netflix.  We have watched 10 out of 13 episodes this week and we're both hooked.  I'm hoping to finish tonight (thursday) which I know is still going to end in a cliff hanger and he's going to be pissed!! Haha, he'll just have to wait until the new season is released.  At least Netflix releases all the episodes at once!
We've successfully watched House of Cards and Naked and Afraid together too if you need some show recommendations.  I've heard Blacklist is great which I might try to hook him on next :)

I also happen to think the guy that plays John in this series is super sexy! Does anyone know what other shows/movies he's been in?

Lastly, I'm excited to announce that I have my shit together and I will be sharing an inspiration board for Brody's new big boy room on Sunday!!! I'm pretty excited to get started on it even though I'm petrified of the thought of him actually sleeping in it!!  This book below may have a little something to do with his new room too.  It just happens to be his favorite book ever!!!

Hope everyone has a fun and fantastic weekend!! See ya next week :)

Linking up with April for Five on Friday, Amanda,  and Farmer Bell for Oh Hey Friday.

  1. I'm so glad you guys liked Bloodline! We really liked it too. We are watching Orphan Black right now which was recommended to us by a friend. Since it's in season 3, we can watch all of the episodes we want without waiting every week :)
    Can't wait to see Brody's big boy room!

  2. We loved Bloodline and then barreled through the fall on netflix - it was amazing!!!! Hope you have a great weekend girl! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. Okay this is perfect! Mark and I have the same problem with tv shows. Just might have to give Bloodline a try!!! Thanks, girl! xx

  5. That dish looks really delish!! I may have to try it out! And I'm loving all your baby girl stuff! Kind of makes me want to have a girl... someday! Bill and I are almost through with Mad Men, so maybe we will give Bloodline a try when we are done!

  6. You can tell you are hitting the nesting stage and I love it! But I am really jealous :) I can't wait to see what you're going to do with B's room and M's! You have such a great eye for design!

  7. Wow you guys got through Bloodline fast! It took us months to watch it. Not because it wasn't good but because I was too tired at night! John, Kyle Chandler, is in Friday Night Lights too. My husband loves FNL. Maybe you guys would like it too!

  9. I so love all the pink things. Totally need to check out this show on Netflix. I'm obsessed with Netflix. they have such great shows.

  10. Bloodline is next on our list to watch and for me, it's specifically because of Kyle Chandler (John)!!! You have to watch Friday Night Lights that he stars in, it's one of the best shows ever!

  11. That dinner looks amazing!! Loving all the sweet baby girl things you got for Madelyn!

  12. Dang, that salad looks divine!!! And all of that baby haul you picked up is just precious!!! I love that sweet sun hat!

  14. We have been totally hooked on Bloodline as well! John is played by Coach Taylor from Friday Night Lights. I still see him as Coach every time we watch and Reina from Nashville was his wife Tami ;-) You know like they were totally real and everything :) Thanks for linking up! Hope you have a fab weekend!
