five on friday

{1} Day of Kindness Link-Up. On Saturday, December 16, we are doing our family's first-ever Day of Kindness. We brainstormed some ideas with the kids and decided that on the 16th we are going to give some of the kids' toys to kids in need, donate canned food to our local food bank, pick up trash around our neighborhood, and give some unsuspecting shoppers a gift card at the store. I'm really excited about it and I hope you join us in loving on your neighbors that day! My kids want to be Kindness Elves and we found these elf hats at Target that they haven't taken off since! Our local Dollar Tree also had elf hats if your kids want to be elves, too.

{2} Speaking of the Dollar Tree....when I saw our store's sign I laughed out loud. Love me some Dolla Tree!

{3} This had me cracking up all night.

{4} If you read this blog you know that despite not being vegan, I greatly prefer the Gardein Seven Grain Crispy Tenders over real chicken. I had found them for $3.99 at Whole Foods originally so imagine my excitement when I found them at my local Target. Now imagine my excitement when I checked Cartwheel and there was a 25% off coupon. Come to mama.

{5} Elden has a loose tooth. Like, a visibly loose tooth. His dentist told us at his last visit that he had a few, but they weren't really noticeable. Now it wiggles like crazy and I am weeping. And Edith looks 13. Stop.

Linking up with KatieAprilAndreaNarci and Erika!


  1. I love the idea of donating some of their toys, we will definitely have to do that. I'm starting to go through clothes now. I need a purge before returning to work. Once one goes, it seems like it's one right after the other! I totally get it though - they just keep growing. Happy Weekend!

  2. We will totally participate in the day of kindness! Dolla? Ya better holla! Love that cartoon.
