5 on Friday

December 6, 2013


Happy Friday! I'm linking up with the lovely ladies of The Good LifeCarolina CharmA. Liz Adventures, and Hello Happiness for everybody's favorite link up, 5 on Friday! You should join in on the fun!

 {one} For the first time in several years we didn't have professional photos taken for our Christmas card (gasp, I know!). We tried three different times to get a good photo with varying levels of success...so you'll see a lot of photos of me wearing the exact same sweater...ha! I originally overlooked this one but now I really love it. I chose a different photo for our card but think this one is a keeper.
{two} I came home from work yesterday to find that my husband had made dinner and bought me the Target Christmas pillow I've been wanting for several weeks! It has been sold out for the longest time but just came back in stock. Best husband ever.

{three} Did you watch Carrie Underwood in the Sound of Music last night???? I caught a few minutes of it but recorded the whole thing and can't wait to watch it this weekend. I know it's really cheesy but I can't help it! The Sound of Music is one of my absolute favs. And Stephen Moyer singing? Yes please!

{four} I've been trying all week to get photos of Hudson in his (way too many pairs of) Christmas jammies....and usually this is what I get. Or I get his back. Mr. Man does not want to have his photo taken. I guess this is the story for the rest of my life, right?


{five} Speaking of Christmas jammies.....above is the link up code for the Holly Jolly Pajama Party next week Tuesday! Please join Darci, Natasha, Jenny, Ashley and I to share photos of our little ones in their cutest holiday jammies! As evidenced above you do not have to be a professional photographer to join in the fun! And be sure to join us on Instagram too! You can find me at girlintheredshoes. Copy the code in the box above and add it to your post. I can't wait to see your photos!

  1. 1. That photo is absolutely beautiful! What a perfect moment. I just told my husband last night that he should plan in the budget to have pro photos every year... I just love our wedding photos THAT much.

    2. That pillow is GORGEOUS. Please tell me that next year you're going to put Hudson in a little coupe and strap a tree to the top for Christmas photos. Because that photo would be spectacular.

    3. I really REALLY enjoyed Sound of Music last night. I actually was glued to my couch watching and tweeting it - couldn't get enough! Carrie's acting is stiff, but her voice is fierce.

    4. Happy Friday!

  2. I LOVE, LOVE that first photo! And I totally feel you on having a hard time getting good photos with a one-year old. :) Hudson is adorable as ever!!!


  3. That photo is gorgeous! I would have thought it was professional! Can't wait to see what picture you actually chose!

  4. Stopping by from Five on Friday and wanted to say hi!! I love the Christmas card picture!

    Can't wait for the Christmas PJ link-up! I'm glad I'm not the only one struggling with getting pictures. My daughter is a moving target, so I feel as thought I've taken a hundred pictures to get a good one!

    Have a great weekend!

  5. GREAT photo and GREAT pillows!!

  6. I LOVE that picture of you three!! And can I say how impressed I am that Jon even went into a target? Mike avoids that place at ALL COSTS. I can't wait for the pj party link up- I've totally snagged lex's photos already- pj's are just so fun! Happy weekend!

  7. Big brownie points for your hubs! If mine cooked for me and came home with a gift, I would fall over. I love the first picture! :)

  8. Are you kidding, that first photo looks so professionally! It's a beautiful shot. Can't wait for the pajama party next week. :)

  9. I like your family photo! Sometimes professional ones are overrated!

  10. I think that picture is my favorite!!!!!! It is SO adorable!!!

    Also, your hubby is such a keeper!!! What an awesome surprise!!!

  11. I love that B&W photo of you guys!!! great job!! I'm excited for the PJ link up too!!! I just gotta get taking some photos! :)

  12. I only meant to watch a couple minutes of Sound of Music but got totally sucked in...just love it! Though Carrie is a terrible actress!! But she sings beautifully!! ;)

  13. Loving that first photo - so gorgeous of all of you. I think candid photos are sometimes just the best ones! And your hubby? Melt my heart. How precious is he, picking up that pillow for you!?! Too cute! (And the pillow is too cute too!)

    Planning on linking up for the pj party. But I am having the same problem you are - my little man just won't sit still long enough for me to catch a photo of him that isn't blurry. Ugh. Oh well. We'll just do our best and hope that the other moms linking up will be having the same trouble, lol!:)

  14. So looking forward to the PJ link up. Got my kiddos christmas jammies all picked out. Target for the win!

  15. I am watching the Sound of Music this very second!!! LOVE!

  16. Madeline's pj's are all ready to go - can't wait for the link up!! Have a wonderful weekend!

  17. I grew up on the original Sound of music and cannot wait to see the new one! Unfortunately it didn't show over here in England but I will be downloading asap! I recently moved from Vermont but the actual Von Trapp family has a lodge there and Maria was actually buried there! Anyway, enjoy your weekend!

  18. The first photo is so pretty! Definitely a framer for Christmastime / Winter! Can't wait to link up for the Christmas Jams link-up, although I don't think I'll be getting any great pictures either -- Owen is anti sitting still!

  19. Happy Friday, Julie!

    I really love that first picture. It is SO sweet.

    I'm still blown away that your husband knew what you were wanting from Target and went out and got it. Like, blown away impressed. High five to the hubs!

  20. mine won't hardly be still for jammie pics these days either!

    LOVE that pillow! SO cute!

    That pictures of you guys is perfection!

  21. What a sweet photo, I love the light in Hudson's eyes, so excited by the lights!
