FIVE on Friday

THE GOOD LIFE BLOG

{FIVE} I’ve actually enjoyed cooking for my family this week. No really. Shocking, I know! I did however have a total “Pinterest Fail” when I tried to make a Garlic Parmesan Potato dish. Although in my defense, I got two phone calls while I was cooking–plus, I had to keep an eye out for a certain two year-old who gets into e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. Hey! It still tasted good 😉


Strawberry Shortcake Muffins, made without flour:


My infamous Chicken Tortilla Soup:


{FOUR} Emmalyn & I totally got rained out at the splash pad yesterday. Total bummer. At least we didn’t get all unpacked and settled–we were still in the car. The crummy thing about getting stuck in the rain here is that we don’t have a garage at our new house–only a really long driveway and a carport. It’s one of the sacrifices we had to make to live in the historic part of town, where we can walk to many places.

{THREE} I absolutely cannot wait for the fall shows to come back on. I’m most looking forward to New Girl
I’m o b s e s s e d with that show!

{TWO} Who else is loving So You Think You Can Dance?!! My favorites are Amy and Fik-Shun. They have so much stage presence, I just can’t stand it! What about you?!

{ONE} I don’t know what I would do without green tea or coffee every morning. I don’t know why, but Emmalyn has been waking up around 6:30 every morning and it’s really taking a toll on me… especially since she doesn’t go to bed until about 9 every night! I know… too late for a little girl. But she won’t go to sleep until Daddy comes home, which is after 8. At least she’s been taking decent naps (mommy, too!) But this schedule we have going on is just not working… I need to come up with a new plan! Wish us luck!

THE GOOD LIFE BLOG
{FIVE} I’m absolutely loving our new house! & our new city. Yes, it stinks that we’re now an 8-hour drive from family, and I’m sure I’m going to have a huge meltdown 4 weeks and 3 days from now, but for now I’m happy as a camel on hump day!


{i swear we didn’t dye indy purple. hehe.}

 

{FOUR} Emmalyn totally bombed her first dance class (without mommy). Apparently I was over confident in thinking that the dance teacher’s daughter would be a little dancing prodigy. I thought for sure she would be her go-getter-slash-extrovert-slash-sassy-self and have a blast. I was painfully mistaken! She cried & cried & cried until the teacher called me to come get her. I was so bummed she didn’t like it–especially since she looked so darn cute in her pink tights and “singing in the rain tap shoes” as she calls them. 

 

{THREE} My hubby is now officially a Doctor. Yep. We He did it! Finally. But the terrible thing about it all is that I don’t even get to be called Dr. & Mrs. {vain, I know} Since he’s a Lieutenant in the Navy, Lieutenant trumps Doctor in his professional title.

 

 
{TWO} My kid is seriously hilarious. She may be the biggest handful 23 hours of any given day, but she cracks me up. Like yesterday… when she put a fake bandage under her nose and said, “I mustache you a question!” Are you kidding me?! Where does she get this from? She’s 2!


 

{ONE} I’m secretly [although not so secretly] counting down the days until Emmalyn starts school. It’ll be her first time in preschool (two days a week) and I cannot wait! You’d think I’d be excited to have free time to go get a massage or my nails done, but nope–I’m ecstatic to clean the house in peace! & go to the grocery store without a wild wilder beast/monkey/grizzly bear. *doing my happy dance*
Have a happy Friday!
