So I am a little late getting this Five on Friday up because I had no clue today was Friday. I am summer mode and lost track of what day it was. I guess that's a good thing! On we go with my Five on Friday...
1.) At the beginning of this week Ava and I headed to the beach to visit my parents for a few days and get some salt water in our hair (and mouths) and some sand between our toes. We had a really great time. Ava loved the beach and loves the sand. Joey didn't get to come with us this year and I have to say it just wasn't the same without him. We missed him dearly! I think Ava even brought home some sand for him hidden in her diaper. Haha! Next week I will be posting about our beach essentials and what helped me survive the beach with a baby so check back soon!
2.) Ava just received her first pacifier clip from Luci & Leavi. This is the first clip we have used for Ava. Oh my goodness! Why haven't I used a pacifier clip before? These have literally changed our lives as parents. Some how we have gone from 20 million pacifiers (it sure feels like that much) to two! We were constantly trying to find her pacifier and digging under couches, chairs, and her crib. With these pacifier clips we don't have to worry about that anymore and she can keep them right next to her and use it when she wants. These clips are awesome! Sometimes Ava will just chew on the leather as a teether and forget about her pacifier. They currently have a deal on them! You can find them here. Go check them out!
3.) Lately Ava loves anything that stacks, rolls, or anything that you can put together and take apart. She just received this toy and it does all of the things she loves in one toy! It has become her new favorite thing.
4.) This week I posted the recipe for this Not 'Yo Mama's Caramel Corn. It is delicious! I warn you now that it is addicting. Go ahead and pin it now and bake later...or heck bake now! You won't regret it. You can find the recipe here.
5.) Cold brew coffee has become my new addiction. I love this brand I found at Publix. My favorite it their sweetened bold and smooth. I add a tab bit of milk to it and it taste so yummy! No added sugar needed. It is sweet but not too sweet.
Happy Friday Everyone!
