5 on Friday

July 12, 2013

Today I'm linking up with some of my favorite ladies for 5 on Friday!

{one} Ikea is one of my love languages. I'm headed there today with my mom and I'm SO excited! It's two hours away so we'll be gone most of the day. Without Hudson. Which means I'll be lugging my breast pump with me too. Good times.

{two} Hudson had his first swimming lesson this week. He didn't love it, but didn't hate it either. He just seemed so confused as to why he was in a giant bathtub with a bunch of people! The instructor had him go underwater several times and he did great! My husband did the class with him and it was all I could do to not jump in the pool with all my clothes on. It was SO HOT in the pool area. We'll be ditching his swim shirt next time for sure...and I might just have to get in too!


{three} Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain in Twilight is my new favorite lipstick! It says put for a long time and doesn't feel gross on my lips. Win!

{four} I bought several of these J.Crew Factory layering v-neck tees when they were 50% off and I am in love. They are my new go-to summer uniform. Soft, true to size, and the sleeves aren't at a stupid length that cut off your arm and make it look weird. They are perfect.

{five} Part one of our back yard makeover is complete. We got our new table, chairs, and umbrella and I am in love! I can't wait to work on the rest!

  1. I love finding the perfect t-shirt. I really like the sunwashed t's from Loft, but I haven't tried the J.Crew ones yet, I'm going to have to now! Good luck in Ikea!

  2. 1) I can't even handle Hudson's face in the pool. "WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE?"

    2) SO JEALOUS of your Ikea trip. I'm dying to make a trip before the wedding, but I don't think it's going to happen. SO SAD.

    3) Revlon, here I come.

  4. The deck furniture is beautiful! I love Hudson's face in the pool, too. He does look a little confused about the giant bath tub! Have fun today at IKEA and (early) HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

  5. A kid free trip to Ikea???? That sounds heavenly! Have fun and hope you come home with some great finds!

    I really want to try that lipstick...is it moisturizing or more like a lipstain where you need to add something over it??

    So glad you linked up with us!! **OH, ps - I don't think the logo link above is working. Might be something on my end. I'll check! :)

  10. We are going to IKEA tomorrow with 2 kiddos (and 4 adults so we'll hopefully outnumber their craziness). It's only 40mins away so hopefully we'll make it out sane. I LOVE the new deck furniture. I wanted to do swim lessons for Max but decided to wait till next year. I am so glad he liked going under, that would be scary for a little one I think.

  11. Have fun at Ikea!!! I can't wait to see what fun things you pick up! I always find something there that is too cute and too great a price to pass up!

  12. I've never been to Ikea before, but after all the great posts and gorgeous photos I've seen in the blog world, I'm dying to go! Unfortunately the nearest Ikea is 4-5 hours away, but I'm hoping to work in a trip in the next year. Have fun!!

  13. You girls are about to make my wallet hurt talking about this J Crew talk! Love the back patio & new table set! We've been looking for one also but, it's so hard to decide on! HA! Hope y'all have a great weekend!

  14. I'm so jealous of your Ikea trip! The closest one to us is five hours away. We're actually planning an entire weekend trip at the end of this month around an Ikea location (and okay, well, my in-laws, too...but really Ikea!). Have fun!

  15. Love the boys' in the pool.

  16. I have a love/hate with Ikea. The crowds of lost wanderers drive me crazy and the assembly drives me crazy. But I do love the prices and the $1 ice cream cone on the way out! :) Sometimes I go just to justify the cone.

    Hudson in the pool is adorable! And I love your new patio set!

  18. Visiting from Five On Friday linkup!

    I would love to go to IKEA. I'm sure it would be one of my love languages as well, lol.

    I need to enroll my 20 month old in swim lessons. He has never gone under before, except for when he looked down at the water last weekend and plopped his face right in.

  19. Have so much fun at Ikea! Sounds like an amazing day.

    Must look into the J. Crew shirts. They're right up my alley!

    Have a great weekend!
