five on friday

{1} Unexpected selfies. Elden loves taking my phone to look at the masks / filters on the Photogrid app I have. When he uses that app he also apparently likes to use the forward-facing camera to take selfies. This was definitely a fun surprise to find on my phone!

{2} Summer! I saw someone share a countdown to fall on Facebook last night and I darn near had a heart attack. Don't get me wrong - I love fall as much as the next ~basic~ girl - but I am. not. ready. Why? Because fall in Ohio means winter is right around the corner which means about 5 months of major cabin fever. I am finally getting into a good place in terms of my postpartum depression... I do not need to start having anxiety about winter!!

{3} Elden's birthday is less than a month away. I think we're going to have a party for some of his friends in the morning and then a family dinner in the evening. I rented our neighborhood pavilion for the day, but Elden specifically requested a pajama party so he can wear his footie pajamas.. in Ohio.. in 90 degree heat. I need help! I need ideas! Do you think it would be too much to do a friend party at our house (so there is air conditioning) at 10 am and then do a family cookout at the pavilion for dinner? If I do a PJ party at 10, would I have it go to 11:30 and feed the kids? Or should I have it from 9-10 and have breakfast foods? I seriously need and welcome any and all suggestions.

{4} We love Luvs diapers. They are typically our go-to for the kids (the other choice being Aldi's diapers). They are on sale on Amazon right now with a $2 off coupon. Just thought I'd pass along the savings because between Subscribe and Save at 20% off and the $2 coupon it's a great deal!

{5} Dress up. We inherited a big box of hand-me-down dress up costumes from my friend, Sam, a while ago that the kids basically live in. All day long, both Elden and Edith will alternate with the dresses and skirts. As a result, several of the dresses are starting to fall apart. I had a Zulily store credit so I decided to see if there were any cheap play clothes there I could get the kids and I hit the jackpot. If you search "costume" you will find oodles of options! The skirts were $5 each and the purple tutu dress was $10. I definitely think Zulily will be my go-to dress up clothes source from now on.

Linking up with KatieAprilAndreaNarci and Erika!

  1. It is not time for Winter. Although, living in Florida I probably have way less anxiety about it than most people. I look forward to BloggyCon at Cedar Point ever September though. I feel like my annual trip to your state is my getway into Fall. Happy Friday!
