Five on Friday {February 21, 2014}

Hey Gals!  Happy Friday and welcome to our favorite link up of the week - Five on Friday, courtesy of Gals Darci, Natasha, April, and Christina Despite the holiday this past Monday, this week has felt super loooong and I'm more than ready to welcome the weekend! So in honor of it being Friday, pour yourself a cocktail and enjoy the five things I've been obsessed with this week!

5 months

One of the few pictures I was able to snap where he wasn't eating the sticker!

This past weekend Baby M turned 5 months old!  I know everyone says it, but I really can’t believe how fast he’s growing up!  And this past month I feel like we’ve observed the most noticeable changes with him and he seems to have become such a little man overnight!  This month’s photoshoot was definitely the most challenging to date – all he wanted to do was tear that sticker off and eat it (and by the end he pretty much succeeded!) 

Buzzfeed quizzes

Hey Gals!

Is it just me or have these buzzfeed quizzes been everywhere lately?!  It seems like every time I look in my newsfeed, someone is posting about the latest quiz and what their results are, which of course then leads me to also take said quiz!  I think my latest favorite fave has got to be the 'What Type of Emoji Are You?" quiz.  B and I have been known to have full on text convos with just emoji’s, so I was pretty obsessed with this quiz from the start.  And my resulting emoji is the Hair Toss Gal, and is pretty spot on, since I use this one all the time!

RBL Beauties

Rescue Beauty Lounge - A Poem Colleciton

These beauties landed in my mailbox today and I can’t wait to break them open this weekend!  Even though I really did not need any new polishes, RBL happened to have a presale of their latest collection during my Birthday week, so I was able to score 25% off!  And these colors are not like anything in my collection, so I just couldn’t resist!  How beautiful is that chunky purple and black glitter?!  And if you aren’t signed up over at Rescue Beauty, you really should create an account and register your birthday so you can enjoy the 25% off during your birthday week too!

Milky


Do you guys remember the show Sister, Sister starring twin gals Tia and Tamera Mowry (and if not, I’m sure you at least know Tia from her starring role in holiday classic, The Mistletones!)?  Well I recently discovered their reality show on the style network, which was running a marathon of old eps.  While binge watching (what can I say, the show’s pretty endearing and totally sucked me in!) they featured a product they had recently launched to help breastfeeding mama’s increase their milk supply called Milky.  It contains a bunch of herbal supplements, including Fenugreek, that have been concentrated into 2.5 oz tea that tastes great and is super easy to take since it’s so small.  I was pretty skeptical, but figured it was worth a shot and I am so glad I did!  I’ll spare you the details but basically this stuff is amazing and has completely restored my supply, which took a hit once I returned back to work recently.  After a couple of weeks of being super stressed, I’m no longer having any issues at all, and I’ve even been able to freeze a little bit of the extra I’m producing (and enjoy a glass or two of wine after those particularly tough work days!)

New Job


I’m super excited to announce that I’m starting a new job in 2 weeks!  One of my New Year’s Resolutions that I couldn’t share with you Gals was to find a new job that allowed for better balance now that Baby M is here.  My current job has pretty long hours and an awful commute on top of it that had me out the door at 6:30am, and usually not home until 8pm most nights.  Needless to say, it was not something that would be sustainable for me long term!  So last week when I was extended a formal offer for a great opportunity with a company much closer to home, I happily accepted! After almost 10 years at my current job, it certainly was a bit scary to make this change, but overall I think it’s going to be a great move for both my career and my family life and I couldn’t be more excited for what’s to come!


Are you Gals as ready for the weekend as I am?
