5 on Friday!



I'm linking up today with the lovely ladies above for 5 on Friday!

One
I'm super excited for the upcoming weekend. The temperatures are supposed to be cooler and more "Fall-Like" (which is great considering its supposed to be around 90 today). I'm getting a much-needed hair cut tomorrow morning and then we have my nephew Mason's 2nd birthday party. My sister is having a Pirate themed party for him and all the kids are supposed to dress up like pirates! I can't wait!

Two
Sorry I've been so MIA around the blog lately. I've just been so tired and just haven't felt like doing much of anything lately. I'm hoping I'll feel better soon and get a little more energy in the second trimester. I'll be 10 weeks on Monday, so I'm hoping I only have 2 more weeks of this nausea and just plain yucky feeling.

Three
I've decided to try and re-structure my weekly "Throw-back Thursday" link up, to making it monthly instead. I also think I'm going to make it themed and have a different co-host each month. If you're interested in co-hosting with me, please feel free to let me know. :-)

Four
If you're looking for some Fall photo inspiration, here's a fun checklist I found here.

Five
I've been working hard on getting Jackson's second year "scrapbook" ready for his party. I used to make all these great homemade scrapbooks and loved doing it, but since having Jackson, I haven't had the time or the desire to do it anymore. So I've made him a book using mixbook.com for every year and I love having them. I've attached his first and second year books here for you to see them. His second year book isn't quite done yet, but its a majority of the way done at this point.

 (If you'd like to view these books bigger you can go here for Year One and here for Year Two.)

I would like to co-host! I think that is a good idea to make it themed. Whenever I see your post I always think dang I have pictures of that somewhere...
