High Five for Friday!

Welcome to another week of High Five for Friday! Make sure to stop by and say hello to my co-hosts, Tif at Bright on a Budget, Della at Della Devoted, and Katie at Cup of Tea.

And now this week's 5:

1. We finally got a new washer and dryer! Our washer died about 2 weeks ago but we just couldn't decide on a new one, especially with the high prices. We totally lucked out that Appliance Smart started their Labor Day sale last weekend. 

2. This coming Tuesday is my birthday. Which means we have a fun weekend filled with family and doing some fun things. Make sure to check back next week and follow Instagram photos of what we are doing this weekend! (And Monday we are going to the Ohio Renaissance Festival, yay!) 

3. We have a blow up pool in our backyard that we have used so much this summer especially to keep Juliet cooled off. My baby can now stand in it on her own. Makes me happy and sad all at the same time. 

4. I made my first Cricut project finally! It's a simple card, but I love it. I found some paper at Joann's last night for a great deal, so I'm excited to work on some projects for Juliet's birthday party! 

5. I'm getting back on the clean eating, working out bandwagon. It's been so hard this year with the emotional and physical roller coaster of having 4 miscarriages, but I know I need to focus on myself and make sure I'm healthy for the family I have right now and hopefully another little one in the future. On today's agenda is the Butt Bible ( it's fun :) and hopefully food prepping some breakfasts and snacks, which is where I struggle the most to make good decisions.

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

  1. Happy early birthday! I'm a September baby too and have a birthday later this month! Sorry to hear about your miscarriages. I only had one, but know how devastating it is. I'm also working on eating better and exercising more.....good luck to you!

  2. I had totally forgotten that we share the same birthday. I wish that we lived closer so we could have lunch and celebrate together. Yay for a new washer and dryer! I hope you have a great birthday weekend!
