Five on Friday + PinkBlush Maternity Winner Announced

{ ONE }

John has been in Belize since Saturday on his annual dive trip (aww, poor guy) so Emery and I headed to my hometown to spend the week with my parents. I love living so close to my family - just a quick two hour trip! We visited Aunt Kippy (my little sister) at her school during lunch. It was pretty overwhelming for E, but she loved checking out the 300+ middle schoolers. On Tuesday night, I headed over to my best friend, Courtney's house for some girl time with her and Natalie to watch the Bachelor. We lived together in Charlotte, NC and it was our Monday night ritual - wine, spaghetti and the Bachelor. Those were the days!

Speaking of the Bachelor, I totally read the spoiler for the season on I have only done this one other time and swore that I would never do it again because it ruins the season. Well, this would be true if I liked the season and didn't think that it was already ruined. I just don't like Juan Pablo as the bachelor or really any of the girls on it. What a disappointing season? I honestly feel like Chris Harrison even knows its bad based on his questions for Juan Pablo.


I asked my older sister, Dena, to be on the look out for a wooden highchair (one like we had when we were small). And guess what? She found one the very next day. I want to use it for E's first birthday. Here are some pins that I am currently loving:

Clearly, I lean toward shades of blues.

I received three different questions/emails about E's nap/eat schedule so I figured that I would post it in case it would be helpful for others.
7:30am - Wake up & nurses
9:00am - Eats a solid (typically a fruit)
10:00am - Nurses & nap
2:00pm - Nurses & nap
5:00pm - Nurses
6:00pm - Eats a solid (typically a vegetable)
7:00pm - 7:30pm - Nurses and bedtime
E has been on this schedule since she was 3.5 months old. All the credit for this schedule goes to my mom...thanks mom/nana!

Weird note: I actually hate the word nurses and I just used it a bazillion times.
