Five on Friday {April 4, 2014}

Hey Gals! It's been a busy week with lots of sequiney goodness so we're so excited to be linking up with Darci, Natasha, April, and Christina for our five faves of the week. Happy Friday and enjoy the weekend Gals!

1. Milky! Giveaway
Enter to win a box now!
Today is the last day to enter our Milky! Giveaway so if you haven't entered yet, get your sequiney butts over to our post and enter!  Think you have no need for Milky! because you're not breastfeeding?! Think again!  It makes a great gift for your sister, best gal, second cousin, twice removed, whoever you may know that is breastfeeding and could use a little boost!  Good luck Gals!

2. Happy Birthday Fred!
This Saturday marks a very special day - it's our gal Fred's birthday!  Fred is my Havanese puppy that I got when I first moved to the city back in 2006 (sorry Fred, don't mean to give away your age!)  She's my first baby, always there waiting at the door when I come home, and my little hot water bottle at night, snuggled right next to me under the covers.  She's a clown dog, through and through and never misses a chance to Gal around when B comes to visit (fun fact, Fred loooooves B more than anyone or anything else in this world!)  Happy Birthday Fred - we love you!

3. Aden & Anais Photo Shoot
Such a little baby model - he was selling those bibs hard!

A couple weeks ago, Aden + Anais, maker of Baby M's favorite swaddle blankets, held a contest on Facebook for the chance to be featured in one of their upcoming ad campaigns.  On a whim, I decided to enter Baby M and he was one of the winners!  So yesterday we took our first trip into NYC together, and he modeled a bunch of their fabulously soft bibs for their summer campaign.  Overall it was a great experience and he was a natural, if I do say so myself.  So keep a look out this summer for his smiley face, though of course I'm sure I'll be posting some official pics once they send them to me!

4. Spring Time Days

Yesterday was the first day that actually felt like Spring here in the Northeast, and I couldn't be more thrilled!  Grill Guy was able to live up to his namesake and fire up the grill and Baby M and I were able to take a long walk around the neighborhood after we got back from our big photo shoot!

5. Fancy New Shoes

These babies arrived at my door on Wednesday and after 5 years of lusting after them, they are even better in person!  I was lucky enough to win a Super Bowl pool, and while I knew that I wanted to cash in my winnings for some new shoes, it took me a bit of time to finally select the winning pair.  Fancy shoes like this are certainly a luxury for me, so I wanted to chose the perfect pair, and now that they are mine, I think I made the right decision!  That huge bow gets me every time, and the nude color is the perfect compliment.  Now I just need an occasion to break them in!

What are you Gals up to this weekend?
