High Five for Friday

Hey guys! I'm so glad to be saying that it's Friday! This week went by pretty fast, but who doesn't look forward to a long weekend?

1. We went to go look at jogging strollers the other day at Once Upon a Child and thought we had found an amazing deal. That is, until we got there and the stroller as as old as me! Needless to say we are still on the market. Anyone have ideas to find a very well priced one? 

2. We celebrated my Dad's birthday this past weekend by going out to eat at First Watch. It was a great time and Juliet was in such a good mood the whole time. I think it really made Grandpa's birthday perfect :) 

3. Juliet got her first tooth! It's not really popped through enough to take a picture of yet, but it's there. I was beginning to think she was never going to get them. 

4. Our backyard chickens have gone crazy. Apparently the first year they can be really loud. Our golden one, named Big Bird by husband, is the biggest loud mouth ever. She carries on until I have gone out there and usually have to let her out. Supposedly she will calm down.

5. Our den is slowly, and I mean slowly, making it's transition into our playroom. We have a built in on one side of the room and this week's project has been going through it. I deep cleaned the whole thing, got rid of a ton of books, and am donating all the formula I've gotten as samples that I've been keeping "just in case." I'm so excited to get our diapers out of our bedroom and finally have it back to ourselves!

How has your week been? I'd love to hear!

  1. Hi Caitlin! Popping over from Lauren Elizbeth's High Five for Friday! I am so glad I found your blog :) What a darling little girl, Juliet! What a pretty name! First Watch is such a fun breakfast spot. I would recommend my favorite teethers at for your little gal, there's a $50 giveaway going on for Open Door Traders at -- so you should check it out! Love your chickens, how cool! I would love for you to check out my 5 from the week --
    I'm your newest Facebook follower! (the FB link from the icon didn't work at first, I think it was missing the "h" on "with").
    So glad to connect with you :D

    1. I will definitely have to check those out, she doesn't really have a favorite yet and tends to try to chew on things that aren't made to be chewed, haha! I will be stopping over in a sec to check it out :)

      And thank you for letting me know about the broken link, I will make sure that gets fixed!

  2. That sucks about the stroller:( I think the Facebook Yardsale/Baby Sale groups are good places to look--I would search for one in your area. And happy birthday to your dad!

    1. That's a great idea, I don't know why I hadn't thought of that! Reminded me I should probably check Craigslist, too.

  3. Next time your folks come to see us we can check out the once upon a child here. Also Play it again sports. Not sure if they have running strollers or not but worth a look see.
