Being Brickner : Five on Friday

Five on Friday

TGIF
With the craziness of the holidays over the last few weeks, we have spent some time away but it feels so good to be back.  Our life as we know it is slowly returning to normal, & here are FIVE of our favorite things as we kick off 2014!!
 
ONEOld Navy.  Is it just me, or is Old Navy seriously killing it these days?!  They are always my go-to for affordable classics, but I am loving most of their entire line right now.  Both for me & for Waverly Maye.  I would have gotten this heart & soul sweatshirt regardless, but the fact that they had a matching version for Waverly, there was obviously no way I could resist. :)
 

For the record, I'm not entirely proud of being that mom who dresses like her kid, yet I literally cannot stop myself.

TWOBaskets.  As much as I love the holidays & decorating as much as possible, I always look forward to starting fresh in the new year (almost) just as much.  It really is the perfect time to re-energize & organize, one of my very favorite things to do!  For me, the answer to organization is baskets, lots & lots of baskets. :)  They are my weakness & just when I think I can't possibly fit another one in my house, I find a cute one like this at Target.


Love the white on top & how light & airy it feels!  So perfect for spring, which I am starting to feel more than ready for.  Too early?


THREEVictoria's Secret Pink Sale.  Another one of my cures to the post-holiday sadness is the yearly pink sale.  I don't plan on ever being too old for the pink brand, I may even be rocking their sweatpants, thermals & workout wear when I'm 65. ;)   Although their prices are definitely high for casual wear, their annual sale is the perfect time to stock up!!  I scooped up some thermals at half-off last week & have been living in them at home ever since.


FOUR:  Boon Feeding Accesories.  I must admit that while Santa brought Waverly Maye lots of toys, I also took advantage of the opportunity to fill our cabinets with some toddler feeding products we have been in desperate need of.  Might as well do it while I can, right ... something tells me I'm totally not going to be able to get away with "useful" gifts in the years to come!  We got this snack tower, snack cup & sippy cup, all three are from Target but are only sold online.  For some reason, their OXO products are not sold in stores?!  Regardless, they are worth the shipping, they are useful & super cute!


FIVENew Years Decor.  My love of garlands is at an all-time high & I really cannot stop myself from having to have one for every holiday.  We are totally getting excited for all things Valentines Day soon, but wanted to give the new year some love for the month of January.  I couldn't find a garland for the New Year, so I made my own with these glitter letters from Micheals.  I stacked it with a star garland from Target & have felt more than ready for 2014 ever since!!


 
We hope that the start of this new year is treating everyone so very well, it looks like 2014 is going to be a good one!  Of course, thank you to April, Darci & the rest of the ladies for hosting.
Have the BEST weekend, XO.

  13. Old Navy is TOTALLY owning it this year, you are right. I try to secretly dress Mason up like my husband all the time, Chad doesn't even notice it until they are side by side. I can't help it either! Boon toddler stuff is the best. We have a ton of it and the designs are perfect - we love the divider plates! Have a great wekend!
