Five on Friday {April 18, 2014}

Happy Friday Gals!  The M household has been plagued with sickness this week, so I am super ready for the weekend, and hopefully a swift recovery! I hope you all have had a better week than me, and have lots of fab things planned for the weekend! We're linking up with Darci, Natasha, April, and Christina for our 5 favorites of the week!

1. Bobbi Brown Glasses

Have you heard that beloved makeup guru Bobbi Brown now has an eyeglass line?!  I'm in love, but even more obsessed with the guide she made to choosing the right glasses for your face.  I always struggle with finding just the right pair, so this is perfect for me.  I especially love that she takes into account color - something I know I often overlook!  Check out her guide here.

2. Non-candy Easter Basket Ideas

This will be Baby M's first Easter and while I'm super excited for him to receive a basket full of fun goodies, he's still too young to have any candy, which is an Easter basket staple.  So this left me trying to think of other creative things to tuck into his basket while not going overboard.  I hit up my local Target, and found so many non-candy things, that his basket will be full to the brim with cute little trinkets and treats.  Some of my favorite finds above include: beach toys, a cute paci holder, a big boy cup (since he's been obsessed with drinking water from my cup anytime I have one!), and of course no basket would be complete without a big stuffed bunny!

3. Baby M's First Art Project

Baby M goes to a great local daycare two days a week, and my heart nearly burst when they sent me this picture of him working on his very first art project!  I was so proud to see my little guy following in Mommy's crafting footsteps, and was very impressed with the final project - of course he had lots of help from his teacher, but this mama was still plenty proud!  And knowing that he's having such a fun day while I'm at work has definitely helped to make the transition away from him a bit easier.

4. Kate Spade Idiom Bangles

I've always been a big fan of Kate Spade's jewelry line, and after I spotted these cuties in her Mother's Day Shop (OMG- I'm approaching my first mother's day!), it was love at first sight.  I love the cheeky little sayings, and you can never have enough bangles, as B pointed out last week!  They are still a little too pricey, but our gal Kate Spade loves herself a sale, so I'll be stalking these for the next couple weeks for when they aren't so steep!  I think the bright blue is my fave, though I love them all!

5. Happy Easter!

And last, but not least, Happy Easter to all who celebrate!  We have a jammed packed Easter Sunday planned, hitting up both sides of the family.  I'm looking forward to a great day with lots of yummy food and quality time with Baby M and our families.  And I especially can't wait to bring a bunch of Easter treats adorned with our TSN designed printables!  I hope all you gals have a fabulous day planned!

And we're also excited to be linking up with Meet at the Barre!
