A HUGE thank you to Lauren at Lauren Elizabeth, who has been hosting this link up forever!  And thanks to all of you who have decided to continue to pop over to join us!

Now, onto our regular High Five for Friday goodness!


1. Of course,the first for this week is that we're the new home of H54F! We're so excited to be hosting. I met some great bloggers there, including my lovely cohosts, so don't forget to check their blogs out too! We are hoping and working hard to keep this tradition going, and we're so excited to have you as a part of it! 

2. We had a wonderful rescheduled Christmas party for my church's Mommy group. It's so great to get together with other women that get what you are going through. We also exchanged handmade gifts and I got a yummy organic coffee and coconut oil scrub. Can't wait to use it!


3. Monday was Jay and I's 2 year wedding anniversary! We had a great time celebrating on Sunday, and even though Monday was full of interviews and various work, we were still able to spend a little time together in the evening.

4. Juliet is officially dropping her 2nd nap. For all you mamas out there, you know what that means. A lot less productivity around here. Plus, quite honestly, any milestone she reaches always makes my heart hurt a little. I love watching her develop, but man, can I keep her tiny a little while longer?


5. I've got quite a few job interviews and opportunities lined up right now that would allow me to have some creative scheduling when it comes to being home with Juliet more. This is helping with the sadness of having to go back to work after staying home for a year. Thank you to everyone who has been so encouraging throughout this journey! I appreciate it more than you know!

  2. Congrats on taking over H54F and excited to linkup with you gals!! I was terrified when my little guy dropped his 2nd nap, but honestly he does great with just the one now and luckily it tends to be a longer one (I can get 3 hours out of him most days!). Good luck with all the interviews and job prospects - going back to work is tough but definitely gets easier over time :) Have a great weekend! xoxo, - M @ The Sequin Notebook

  7. Dropping the nap. Oh man.... big hugs! Is that the morning nap? Elizabeth keeps teasing me about needing a morning nap or not. And those days when there isn't a morning one, I'm so grateful for that afternoon nap! I need a break too!!

    Praying for your interviews and job opportunities!

    1. Yeah the morning one, it's going well so far but she's tired. She needs to nap longer it's just hard to get her on a good schedule. I may tweak it a little this week and then go from there.
