Five on Friday

It's friday and for me it actually is a friday! That's not a common thing but I work tonight then me and the little are headed to San Antonio to spend a little extra time with my parents.  My mom is awesome and this is her last weekend before her last class starts as she finishes her Masters!! 

Lets jump right in to my Five on Friday this week...

I made this recipe this week for a friend who just had a baby and just went ahead and made a double recipe and we ate it for dinner ourselves.  It was so good and easy and is a "make ahead" meal so I plan to add it to my list of recipes to make for our freezer in preparation for our new addition.  This recipe was a sure winner and I know this because L asked for seconds and ate it twice the next day as leftovers!! The link is here -->> Kraft Recipes

This bad boy, the 4moms Mamaroo, is on the top of my wish list for this baby!! I plan to sell the swing we have because I am not a fan and I have heard so many rave reviews of this thing I am eager to get one and try it out! Obviously the baby would be trying it out but you get the idea :)

My sweet lovebug has a cold, he woke up the other day super congested and hasn't been himself the past few days.  He is such a trooper though and still is such a sweet boy and continues to sleep good at night.  We have the head of his bead elevated and broke out the coolmist humidifier.  He should be on the mend in no time!

As I had previously mentioned, all of L's baby clothes that were light colors had these old yellow stains on them that made their debut after being stored in a box for two years.  I was able to get them all stain free! I soaked them in a TON of oxyclean in the bathtub for about three days then hung them in the sun to dry.  They need washed in baby soap to soften them up but they are all back to their stain free self!! 

I just finished a fantastic book that really sucked me in from the first pages.  Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman It was so very good and if your looking for a quick read this would be my recommendation!

YAY for Friday {and a trip out of town}!!

I'm pinning that recipe right now, by the way --- I love hearing about other recipes that friends have actually tried and really loved. Too many Pinterest recipe fails over here...... now I like to hear from someone else first {remember the queso that we both attempted....ha!}.

I've heard wonderful things about the Mamaroo as well! Pricey, but so worth it if they are that good. :)

Hope your sweet little guy is back to his normal self asap! Not sure what the deal is, but it seems like a summertime cold is going around like crazy right now!

Happy weekend, girl.... so glad you linked up!

I've been eyeing the MamaRoo too and was debating if it was worth the money. If you get one, you'll have to do a review and let me know how you like it!

aww hope L is feeling better!

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
