5 on Friday!

Hi ladies and hellllooooo Friday!
We have a fun-filled weekend ahead of us, with a birthday party and Super Bowl Sunday. Hopefully it won't go by as fast as all the others seem to, but I have a sneaky suspicion it will... anyway, let's get to FIVE ON FRIDAY!  Today, I'm sharing a very random round-up of things. 


Is it just me or does meal planning suck? Everything, from making the grocery list, to tackling the crowds up and down the aisles at the store, to coming home after a long day and making dinner just sucks. Add in a picky husband AND a 2-year old who I'm trying to make sure gets the right nutrients, and meal planning is almost impossible. But, I found this super cute printable by Confessions of a Recovering Chocoholic so hopefully this makes our weekly dinners a little more stress free. :o)

Check out the FREE printable here!

I've been getting so many compliments on the outfit I wore for T's Birthday Party last weekend, so thank you! This black & white quatrefoil dress  is even more fabulous in person! Another plus? It's not even maternity, so I can wear it again post-baby! And of course, I'm in love with those mint accessories.
The dress is from Aloha Y'all Boutique and my necklace and earrings are from Slightly Sophisticated

On Wednesday, I linked up with Ashley and Jess for the very first edition of It's the Little Things, and I can not wait to do it again next week! For those of you that missed my post, check it out here and be sure to join in next week!    
We're going to a friend's house to watch the Super Bowl on Sunday, and I got nominated to make my buffalo chicken dip. It makes me laugh when I get random texts throughout the day from my girlfriends telling me they're craving it! Besides, it's super easy to make. But, I thought I might try to be festive and being along a dessert too.... how adorable are these football brownies? It depends on how domestic I'm feeling Sunday, but I just might try to "tackle" them... get it? Corny, I know!

Okay, let's be honest, I'll probably end up resorting to this because it looks much easier, but hey, at least it still will be yummy, right?


Oh Dance Moms, you are my guilty little pleasure. I got hooked back on it when hubs was traveling for work... but you have to admit, those little girls are just so darn cute! And good! It sure brings back some good memories of when I danced, and gets me so excited for Tinley to start dancing! Call me crazy, but I CAN NOT wait to be a dance mom!
So, now it's your turn! Be sure to link up for some fun with April, Darci, Christina, and Natasha! Happy Friday everyone, and have a great weekend!

  8. I'm with you - meal planning sucks. It is such a pain because nobody in this house has the same tastes, and having a one year old definitely makes the whole cooking process harder too. At least the printable is cute!

  9. That looks like such an awesome link up! And I love that dress! Very cute baby bump!!!

  10. Totally agree about the meal planning!! Thanks for sharing the printables I will have to check those out! Also, what a precious baby bump!! :) Saw this link up on a friends blog this week so I will have to join y'all next week! Happy Friday! :)

  11. Hi from the link up :) The dress is adorable! Hooray for clothes that are cute for pregnancy + wearable afterward too!! Buffalo Chicken Dip sounds soooo good right now!! Have a fun weekend & enjoy the yumminess to come :)

  12. I just came across your blog and wanted to say hi! I love it and can't wait to follow along :) Thank you for sharing that cute printable for meal planning. I really need to start doing that!

  13. I feel you on the meal planning!! I'm fine to sit down and pick dinners, that's easy! But the idea of grocery shopping and cooking for a picky husband and a two year old drives me crazy!! I'll have to give this printable a try! Stopping by from Five on Friday!
