Five on Friday: {April 10, 2015}

Happy Friday Gals! I think I've finally come off of my Easter sugar high, just in time to welcome the weekend! As usual, we're kicking things off with our five favorites of the week - hope everyone has a fab weekend ahead!


 Mini Easter Recap
 I know Easter was last week and long gone already, but since I wasn't able to get my act together and do a proper recap, I thought I'd include a couple of my favorite pictures as a mini-recap of sorts! Little M was dressed in his Easter best, including the cutest bow tie I've ever seen (found here), and had a great day opening his basket, hunting for eggs with his cousin, and celebrating our gal Fred's birthday. This year we kept it simple, and had breakfast at home, and then headed to my parents house for the day. All-in-all it was a great day, especially since Little M is starting to get to the age where he's aware of holidays!

 Carnival Fun

 One of the items on my Spring Bucket List was to venture out and attend some local events, so I'm so excited that I'll be headed to a carnival with GG and Little M this Saturday. This will be the first time we explore one with Little M and I'm hoping they have a couple of kiddie rides that he's able to go on with us!

Monthly Cocktail Link Up

This Tuesday is our monthly cocktail link-up, so we hope you'll join us for a little mixin' and minglin' and share your favorite cocktail recipe post - past or present! We're super excited for our recipe this month, and while I don't want to give too much away, we're lighting things up with a skinny and seasonal cocktail - cheers!

Fitbit

So I've officially jumped on the Fitbit bandwagon and purchased the Fitbit Flex! I'm trying to be more aware of my daily activity (or lack thereof!) and so far am really liking it! It definitely helps me stay motivated to take the stairs more often or take the long route during my trips to the bathroom (it sounds silly, but those extra steps to the other side of my office floor really add up!). Any other fitbit users out there - let me know and I'll send you my user info so we can be friends and keep each other motivated!!

Funny Animal Memes

 And lastly, I leave you with some ridiculous funnies. I was bored the other day and fell down the black hole of memes, and landed on some amazing animal memes - I was legit laughing at my computer for an hour as GG just kept shaking his head at me, so naturally I had to share some of my favorites!




Happy Weekend Gals!

Cheers to AmandaJennieKarliClare, Rebecca, Katie, Natasha, Heather, Farrah, and Tif for hosting today's link-ups!

  5. Ohh so jealous you get to go to a carnival this weekend! I LOVE carnivals! Minus clowns. Haha! I still can't decide about a fitbit! I want one but I do a lot of weights and bike riding and I heard it doesn't track those things very well... but maybe I heard wrong? Have a great weekend!!

  11. I don't have a fitbit, but I've got a garmin vivofit. I love it. It's such a great reminder and motivator. Some days I force myself to workout because I'm embarrassed by the low number of steps I've completed!

  20. I have been thinking of jumping on the FitBit (or some fitness tracker) bandwagon as well! It seems like it would guilt me into activity, if nothing else ;)

  24. I'm trying to decide between a Fitbit Charge and a Jawbone - leaning toward the Fitbit but waiting until I have the money saved before buying. I think it will make me take the stairs more at work!
