5 on Friday

September 13, 2013

Happy Friday! Let's get started with 5 on Friday. Linking up as usual with the ladies from The Good Life BlogCarolina CharmA. Liz Adventures, and  Hello Happiness for 5 on Friday...and you should too!

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5
{one} My name is Julie, and I'm a pajama-holic. I know it's only September, but I'm already on the hunt for cute Christmas pjs! I'm obsessed. I learned last year that it's better to start the search now and not wait until November. Because stuff sells out FAST! A few months ago I pre-ordered a few pairs for Hudson and I can't even remember what they look like! And the gap better release their collection asap...they always have the cutest stuff!

{two} One year check-ups stick. I took Hudson to his doctor's appointment this week and he got 4 shots. My heart was broken. And then I snapped a photo of his chubby thighs with his 4 band aids and he got SO mad at me. I had every intention of instagraming the photo...but then something changed my mind. I guess he needs a little privacy now, right? I don't want him to look back on my blog and be embarrassed. Moms: How do you find balance between blogging about your life but keeping some things private, for your kid's sake? I'd love to know!

{three} I'm on the hunt for a good new fall nail color. I'm thinking grey, burgandy, or maybe even navy? But I'm just stuck. Does anyone have a favorite shade of Essie polish?

{four} We went to a wedding last weekend and have another one this weekend! And then one more next month. I swear we had zero weddings last year and then a ton this year. Good thing I LOVE weddings! At last week's wedding Hudson got his own box of goodies during dinner. It was the cutest thing ever. 

{five} Three words: Pumpkin Doughnut Holes. Two more words: Yes Please.

  1. Good question on balancing the blog...when Cameron was first born, I created a separate blog that's private. The pictures are intimate because they are some of our firsts as a family. Whenever I have a picture that I want to keep (god forbid I lose my iPhone pics), I post it on there.

    How in the world to get nail polish to not chip? Whenever I paint my own nails, they chip within a few days!!

    Have a great weekend, and have fun at the weddings!


  2. That burgundy color is AMAZING and I want it bad.

  3. I love all those colours. I say get all of them and wear a different one each week.

  4. Hudson is so cute with his sticks! And thanks for making me hungry for pumpkin doughnuts! :)

  5. I LOVE burgundy nails in the fall - so classic. And I need those doughnut holes in my life!

  6. Try Essie's Hot Cocoa. It's a greyish brown mix. Very September!

    Whew, we just finished our weddings for the year. Have fun this weekend!

  7. I also love pajamas. I now have the itch to search for Christmas ones! I think the navy polish would look gorgeous on you.

  8. i LOVE the burgundy nails! i try to balance my blog by not posting photos of my baby on my blog at all. it seems extreme but i don't have much of a following except close friends and i get nervous about safety.

  9. I'm turning into a pj crazed mom! Lex has THREE pairs of Halloween Jammie's... I need to get started on Christmas!! Yay weddings (and cute nails!). And double yay for pumpkin donut holes!

  10. You've inspired me to want to get cracking on ordering some presh pjs for my little man. Gosh, I could just shop all day for him. So dangerous for the budget, lol! Happy Friday!:)

  11. I blogged about Essie Chinchilly last weekend: http://hellonewlywedlife.blogspot.com/2013/09/currently-lovin.html

    It's the most perfect fall neutral :)

    Your family is precious, love the wedding picture!

  13. Aww poor Hudson having to get shots! I think you took the que from him by not posting the picture! I love the grey nail polish! & Pumpkin donut holes!? I think I've seen it all now! Have a great weekend!

  14. Favorite fall nail colors:
    OPI You Don't Know Jaques! and OPI Mrs. O'Leary's BBQ! Happy painting!

  15. Ohhh pumpkin donut holes. I must try!

  16. I can tell pumpkin doughnut holes are going to be my new fav!!!

  17. I am with you on the Christmas jammies - I already bought a pair for each one of my kiddos. And those donuts - sound amazing!!

  18. LOVE all of the Christmas Jammies! I've been on the hunt too for my little one!

    I also love fall nail colors! I can't get enough of this season. Now if only the hot temperatures would dissappear!

  19. OMGOSH...Those doughnut holes! That's all I can remember! ;)

  20. I am on the hunt for some family matching PJs. Well see if I can find something my husband will agree to wear:) We had the same wedding blow up right after we had a babe. We also have one in October. Baby C was invited, but how do you know if you can bring your babe or not - do you ask? do they have to be on the invite? that always confuses me:)

  21. Pumpkin donut holes...amazing!! And yes I snapped the cutest tush picture of Easton with his birthday hat on and stopped myself from posting it.

  22. I love all the fall polish options! I also need those Pumpkin Donut Holes right.now!

  23. I love those polish colors you posted! I'm not a huge Essie fan, but I love Rimmel Steel Grey for fall! I have a few OPI favs too but I can't think of the names off the top of my head.
    Is the wedding you're attending this weekend in GR,MI by chance? If so, I bet I know who it is and my dad will be there, ha! :)

  24. Those pumpkin holes sound delicious! And seriously...seasonal PJs? The best.

  25. Oh I just love jammies!! And the adorable Christmas themed ones you included at the top of this post... to die for!!! And I am not a donut person, but those little donut holes look pretty yummy!

  27. Ohhhh the Christmas PJs…love, love, love!!! I can just see Hudson in every single one of those! And don't you love it when you order something and then totally forget what it looks like…my husband really likes it when I do that ;) Or when a package shows up on the door and I have no earthly idea what it is. Ha!

    Have fun at the wedding this weekend, friend!!

  28. I completely agree on finding holiday pjs early...I've already been on the lookout too!

    Also...you're killing me with those donut holes!!
