weekend links!

happy friday from this goofy boy who’s all about taking pictures of things he loves these days. also, according to ethan, being a “big boy” means running around doing karate naked ūü§Ē not sure where he got that idea from… certainly not jerry! what are you up to this weekend? we’re celebrating cinco de mayo tonight with authentic mexican from a grocery store in mount lebanon. then a birthday party for the boys, a nother’s day brunch for me, and hopefully finishing building the garden. 

how pretty is this dress!

this facebook sale group has saved me some money. and let’s be honest, spent some of my money too. 

pittsburgh drivers really are the worst. sorry friends. it’s true. the “pittsburgh left”?! soooooo dangerous. 

i would not mind getting this bouquet. the ranunculus!

we just got the boys a calendar to help them understand time. i think this daily chore chart is next. i’m so bad at giving the kids tasks to do but i know that is a disservice to them. 

have a good weekend!

william is so close to being able to sit. milestones happen so fast at this stage and i have a love/hate relationship with it. the older boys got to do a carwash the other day while i got dinner ready. micah’s been asking to do it again every day since.

now for some weekend reading!

The world has enough women who know how to do their hair. It needs women who know how to do hard and holy things. The world has enough women who live a masked insecurity. It needs more women who live a brave vulnerability. This is such a good reminder for me.

i’ve been looking for new dining room chairs for.ever. and either they’re too expensive or jerry doesn’t like them. i’m looking at¬†these¬†currently after inspiration from¬†the faux martha¬†(it was in her insta stories.)

i’m pretty sure¬†this¬†was jerry the first time he had bacon.

i am totally disgusted that a hotel in PA would be an epicenter for human trafficking and that no one spoke up about it.

i seriously was crying from laughing so hard at this one.

i love this madewell tee.

also, why is it so hard to find a red swimsuit that isn’t baywatch or wildly immodest?! maybe¬†this one¬†or¬†this one.¬†i’m a little nervous about the sizing, but since they’re free returns, i have nothing to lose.

have a great weekend!

the boys reading books to william the other morning while i got ready. they’re such good big brothers, entertaining him so i can at least get dressed. and maybe even put on some makeup.

i shared on my instagram that i’m joining Julie from SoCanary on her #wholecanary. i’m giving up sugar, sticking to three meals a day (it will help me keep from emotional eating), planning out the night before what i’m eating (again, to keep from emotional eating, but also, making sure i’m eating a balanced diet) and limiting my flours to only 100% whole grains (and even that limited). i log my food on myfitnesspal.

i ordered these earrings the other day and they should be arriving today. just in time for a date!

this kid on ellen was so cute.

recovering from perfect mom syndrome.

being a n’sync fan growing up, and a current justin timberlake fan, i loved¬†this commercial.

scientists discover why you hate the sound of loud chewing. guilty.

have a great weekend!
