Five on Friday: {July 31, 2015}

Happy last day of July Gals! Can you believe tomorrow kicks off the last month of summer?! The next couple weeks are completely jam packed for me, as summer tends to be, and I'm hoping to soak up as much sun as possible because before we know it we'll be breaking out our scarves and obsessing over pumpkin everything! Tonight we're headed to a wedding for one of GG's high school friends and then into the city on Sunday to celebrate a brand new little one from one of his dental school friends. So definitely a fun weekend ahead and to kick things off, I'm sharing my five favorites of the week!

 
Little M's First Haircut

This past weekend was a very hard mommy moment for me - Little M had his very first haircut! I've been fighting it for weeks now (I wasn't ready to say goodbye to his little baby curls in the back!), but he's nearing his 2nd birthday and his little flyaways were getting pretty unruly so I gave in and headed to the mall on Sunday.

He was so well behaved - I think the police car really helped since he LOVES cars


That is of course, after he refused the smock (and we of course gave in and let him take it off)


But he sat like a good boy and let the hairdresser snip snip off all of the strays, until he became a little man! I swear he looks like he's ready for college with this big boy haircut!

A couple tears may have been shed (more so by GG than me!), but none from Little M, so we treated him to a train ride

And some ice cream for being such a good little big boy! And just a side note - a HUGE thank you to Red Mango for offering non-dairy chocolate ice cream! Little M is allergic to dairy and to be able to still treat him with ice cream makes my mommy heart very happy!


Favorite new song on repeat


I'm beyond obsessed with this new song from A Great Big World! Have you heard it yet - if not, I suggest you give a listen immediately because it's so, so good!


Naked Smoky Palette

Kate recently posted about some blogger blame purchases which totally resonated with me, especially since I just purchased something that I blame on her influence - haha! We recently took part in a giveaway that Kate organized for a Naked Smoky Palette and after lusting after it just a little too much, I broke down and bought myself one! I'm so excited to play around with it properly, but I'm already completely in love with it!


Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

So I know I'm SUPER late to the party on this one, but I finally checked out Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix and am totally obsessed! So obsessed that GG and I easily polished off the whole first season in a weekend! It's completely silly and nonsense, but with a terrific cast - if you're a fan of 30 Rock or Mindy Project, then you'll love this! I'm in love with Titus and apparently I'm not the only one since he nabbed an Emmy nod so definitely check out this series if you haven't yet!

My baby sister turned 21!

If you follow us on Instagram then you probably saw the party pic, but I just wanted to give one final shout out to my baby sister Kelsey who celebrated her 21st birthday this week! We celebrated on Saturday night with a big party, and besides the fact that I felt like a million years old compared to all of her friends, I had the best time and was so excited to help her celebrate with some many cocktails!


Even though we're 12 years apart (please do not do the math!) I consider her one of my closest friends and we truly have a special bond. So this last one goes out to you, Kelsey - Happy, Happy Birthday and I'm so happy I got to celebrate this fun milestone with you (and thank you for letting this old gal celebrate into the wee hours of the night with you and all of your friends!). Love you!

What are all of you gals up to this weekend?!



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

  19. Can your little guy be any cuter? What a brilliant idea to have a car is a haircutting station! I so remember those days and I definately shed a tear over the first haircut, just seems like they're going from a baby to a little man....sigh!! I bet you are the best big sister, happy belated birthday to her! I hope your weekend is full of fun, smiles, and lots of love!

  21. Little M looks TOO cute in the crying photo! And of course handsome afterwards! I have to try out the smokey palette – I just had to rebuy the original because mine was out so I think the smokey will come closer to fall.

  29. Little M is looking so handsome! I keep hearing great things about Kimmy Schmidt, but those silly humor shows usually aren't my thing! I am very intrigued though!

  30. Great song! And the pictures of your son getting his first haircut are adorable!

  31. He looks so adorable with his first little hair cut! I wish our area had a car for the babies to sit in. That would probably calm Raylan so much. I totally understand all too well about allergens. I wish more places were more allergen friendly. Thanks for linking up to H54F!
