THE GOOD LIFE BLOG
  High five for Friday! Today I'm linking up with the lovely ladies of The Good LifeCarolina CharmA. Liz Adventures, and Hello Happiness and you should too! Let's get this party started...
{one} I've been using Essential oils for a while now and have nothing but good things to say about them! Using them has really helped my little family with SO many things....Hudson's sleeping habits, breathing easier when we have a cold, cleaning without chemicals, defense against daycare germs....I'm officially in love! I'm working on a a post all about my favorite oils and how I use them for everyone who has asked....but in the meantime please feel free to email me if you have questions! (thegirlintheredshoes @ gmail) and you can also buy oils from my site HERE.

 {two} Hudson has been loving tomato soup lately. His attempts to eat it with a spoon are acutally pretty good...and adorable. I know I'm biased but oh my word, it doesn't get much cuter than this. When he gives up he just dunks his hand in the soup. Dinner time in our house is always fun!

{three} I haven't had time to read a book in ages.....now I'm dying to read The Antelope in the Living Room. It sounds hilarious and perfect for a married mama like me! I'm old school and don't have a kindle...anyone else like me? Maybe I would read more if I had one....

{four} Is this not the sweetest bracelet ever? One with Hudson's name on it might just have to make it's way to me....I love it soooo much.

{five} On Wednesday night my husband and I got to go to a special screening of The Monuments Men (which comes out today!) and it was SO good! It was funny, heartwarming, smart.....I loved it and highly recommend it! My husband liked it too....he also liked that a blogging perk for me meant a spontaneous date night for us! Blogger win!

Happy weekend!

  7. My husband got me that exact bracelet with Caleb's name on it for Christmas! I LOVE it - it is dainty enough to wear every day, and just so precious to have that sweet reminder of your little one right there on your wrist. You definitely need one with Hudson's name on it asap!

    Can't wait for your post on essential oils. I'm def interested in trying some!

  8. I LOVE that bracelet!!!! I have been wanting something with Cam's name on it...this bracelet is small enough but makes a huge statement. :)

    Thanks for the book recommendation...I don't have a kindle, either, so I just borrow them from our school library. :) I am so old-school in that department. I would much rather read a BOOK than slip my iPhone to turn the page. :) I just finished Gone Girl; have you read it?

    Dinner time is what I like to call pre-bath free-for-all. It never ends with a clean baby, high chair or floor!! Haha

    Have a great weekend!!

  10. i would love to see that movie immediately, if not sooner. so would the farmer…so we probably have big plans for that on v-day (sarcasm). if you get a chance to see another movie…lone survivor will have your covering your face the entire time. so. good!

  11. Can't wait to hear about the oils - if love to start using them here too. We use eucalyptus oil when we're sick and I used some oils during birth, and they really helped! Can't wait to learn more!! That bracelet is too cute!!!

  12. We LOVE our doTerra oils! I started using them when the babe was really colic-y (lavender) and now we use all kinds of them everyday. Great product! Looking forward to your post about them...I'm always looking for new ways to use them :)

  13. I hav been wanting to try essential oils, but it's such an investment... Maybe I will pull the trigger soon. Also, you definitely need a kindle! I read way more now that I have one. You'll never look back! A valentine's day gift to yourself perhaps! :-)

  16. That movie is on my list. I added that list to my to read shelf on goodreads. I was anti kindle until Perk got me one for our anniversary. I read a lot on it. I love that I can download media from the library! So it is like checking library books out, without going or having them be overdue!
