5 On Friday


I'm linking up again with these ladies for "5 On Friday" - A. Liz AdventuresCarolina CharmHello! Happiness and [the good life blog].  Check them out!

1 - Found another great garage sale this morning!  I was able to get some great play clothes for Hadley, plus a sound machine for $5 (all part of the "Operation: Hadley Needs to Sleep" deal, which is going AMAZINGLY WELL, btw) and some Melissa & Doug puzzles for $3 a piece.  Maybe I've mentioned this before, but seriously, nobody should ever, ever buy toys full price.  Just find a good garage sale and you'll find good, clean toys, most of which have the working batteries still in them.

2 - I made this stir fry recently, and it is so dang good.  The light sauce doesn't make it feel heavy, and because I like a little crunch I undercook my veggies and top it with toasted almonds.  YUM.  Skinnytaste Spring Stir Fried Chicken with Sugar Snap Peas and Carrots.

3 - We get our puppy next weekend!  I'm mostly excited, but there's a part of me that is dreading the middle-of-the-night potty breaks and house breaking accidents.  Our last dog, Bo, was born on a farm so I really didn't feel like we even had to potty train him, going to the bathroom outside came very naturally for him.  This puppy is a different story.  One thing about getting a small dog that I'm excited for?


Dog sweaters!

4 - Even though I really don't have a lot of respect for her personal choices after her affair made the headlines a couple years ago....this girl can sing, and her new CD is good.  A couple favorite tracks are "Spitfire" and "You've Ruined Me"


5 - We've finally got a sunny day!  The last two weeks have been pretty crappy, weather-wise.  Cold and rainy, which is not what you want come June in the Northern Midwest!  Each day of terrible weather just adds fuel to my fire to move to Tennessee all the sooner (which is my dream that will probably never be realized, ha).

Happy Friday!
