Five on Friday

I have enjoyed following Natasha over at Hello! Happiness and her fellow bloggers who participate in the Five on Friday link-up.  I keep saying I will write a post and link up, but I just never get around to it.  I'm giving it a try today - hopefully it sticks.  Here goes...

ONE -  In addition to Diet Coke, I have been enjoying my morning coffee around here.  I haven't always been a coffee drinker, but there is something about having two littles in your grill all day that just make it a necessity.  I recently picked up some Chai Latte K-cups to try, and they are amaze.  I have become slightly addicted and crave the cinnamon/ginger/nutmeg spices.  So perfect for fall!

TWO -  I just pulled the trigger on these items at Gap.  I bought a pair of ivory legging cords last fall, and they are so comfy.  I'm loving that wine color!  The boyfriend jeans are new territory for me.  I figured Gap was a safe place to test the waters since I can easily return them if they turn into a mom-jean disaster.  And the striped tee?  Perfect when you gotta throw something on fast and lug some kids around.  I might even throw on a scarf with it if I'm feeling fancy.


THREE -  We have cabinets!  Seeing actual cabinets in the house might be the most exciting part of this whole house-building process for me so far.  They have changed the look of everything and really defined the rooms - duh.  It's just starting to look like a real home, and that makes me so happy because let's face it, this apartment is dead to me.  So. Over. It.

One of these days, I will remember to bring the actual camera to the house so I can get some decent pictures.  Well, maybe...

This might be the most exciting part - a place to put shoes and bags.  For the love, all the bags... 

A wine fridge will go in that empty space.  Why the wine fridge?  Let me remind in my grill. ;) 

Laundry Room

FOUR -  I know I'm late to the party on this one, but I finally purchased a Clarisonic Mia, and I think I love it.  It's too early to tell if this is a game changer or not, but it definitely leaves my face feeling super clean and just the right amount of tingly.  I've just been using my standard Purpose cleanser (Umm, best stuff ever - $5 at Target, doesn't cause break-outs, and it's actually what my dermatologist recommended.  Winner!) with it, and it's working great. 

FIVE -  My girls were so sweet yesterday.  Izzy wasn't feeling well, and Harper woke up from her nap kind of clingy, so we were all piled on the couch watching Doc McStuffins.  I had my arm around Izzy, and she had her arm around Harper.  It was all kinds of precious.  I looked down at them, and they both had their hands on Harper's head, softly stroking the afro.  I died.
