High Five for Friday

I am so glad that it is Friday again. The days were long this week and I'm glad to be seeing an end. Let's get right to it, shall we?

1. Juliet went to her 12 month appointment this week and she is officially in the 10th percentile for weight! This is huge, because until 6 months she wasn't even on the scales. We jumped from 3.3 to 10 in only ten months, and I couldn't be happier about it. She did great with her shots, too. So all in all a great visit.

2.  The blog got a mini makeover! It's not a huge change, but definitely a change for the better. I now have a contact page, a new and improved logo, and a button for any of my lovely blogging friends to post onto their blogs. Feel free to grab one for yours!

3. This week I announced that I am doing the 'Tis the Season Mug Swap 2014 with my blogging friend Katie from the Cup of Tea blog. You sign up, get a partner, send an adorable mug and get one in return. Click here to learn more and sign up! 

4. We had our first official snowflakes in central Ohio yesterday. I've got mixed feelings. I love snow and the anticipation it brings for Christmas. However, I am also remembering the Polar Vortex that had me trapped inside with a newborn for 5 months (yes it snowed and remained cold for that long here last year!) and I'm desperately hoping that I won't have a repeat.

5.I'm desperately behind on laundry. Does that count as something going on for the week? It's sad, but that's currently where I am. We ran around so much for Juliet's "You are My Sunshine" birthday party last week and weekend that this week has just been catch up. Maybe next week I will have something a little more exciting to share with you all.

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

    1. Sadly, there's too much here! I'm sitting here looking at about 3 inches right now. I don't mind when it's around Christmas, but Nov. is just too soon for my taste.

    1. She is always getting compliments on it :) And yes, it really makes me excited to get some stuff done on the blog, even if it's smaller changes!

  5. We are supposed to get snow tomorrow... I have mixed feelings too. Part of me is excited but most of me hopes they are wrong!

    1. As long as it snows on Christmas, I guess it isn't so bad. I just hate being stuck inside with a little one!

  6. It was flurrying in Lex today. They're giving 3-5 inches later this weekend.

    Love the new logo at the top! Button swap?

    1. We got 2-3 inches last night and still coming down :( Only thing I'm excited about is seeing how Juliet reacts.

      And yes, button swap! :) That was on my list for today!
