Being Brickner : Five on Friday

Five on Friday

Happy Friday, an extra-special Friday because it is the start of a long weekend!  Having one more day to spend with Waverly Maye makes this working mama so very happy, I can't wait!
Here are FIVE other things making me (& my mini!) happy at the moment ...

ONEAccesories.  I mentioned it earlier this week, Waverly Maye is a total accessory lover!  I obviously love it, nothing warms my fashionista heart more than watching her sit in front of her jewelry box as content as can be.  We spent some major girl time this week, this diva decided that just one extra accent to her tutu was clearly not enough.


I usually try to live by the "less is more, stick to one-statement piece" style mantra, but how could I resist a major fashion moment like this?  As we all know, toddlers can pull just about anything off & the fact that she even was efficient enough to use a necklace as a belt?  I mean, am beyond proud.

TWOToddler Slippers.  What better way to beat the winter blues than with the sweetest, softest, fuzziest slippers you ever did see?!


Waverly loves wearing them, I love looking at her in them. It's a total win-win. Thanks again, BabyGap! I really don't know how we would ever live without you. ;)

THREEPJ Nightgown.  I've said it before, this is yet another look I would never recommend for an adult but I cannot get enough of on a toddler.  A nightgown for a little lady (on sale right now), taken too another level with those sweet slippers.  Too precious for words.


I paired with leggings for bed to make sure my little lady was nice & cozy all night long.  Love that the hearts are so Valentines Day friendly, getting close, friends!

FOURMom's One Line A Day Book. My mom got me this book for a baby shower when I was pregnant, it's meant for moms to write one "special" line a day for five years. The idea is so perfect, I love the fact it helps moms remember those little things that are so easy to forget. Well, somewhere in that crazy new mom no sleep, just trying to get through the day phase I went through when Waverly was born, it got lost in the shuffle. Since I am trying to be present in 2014, I pulled this gem back out & it has been the most fun to write in each night! The only downfall is my desperate attempt to get my thoughts into a single line, imagine that?! ;)


FIVE:  Valentines Day.  It's less one month away & we are in total preparation mode!  That obviously involves lots of red, pink & heart-shaped apparel, is there anything better?!  Loving this heart sweater for Waverly Maye & of course, a coordinating one for mama.

Happiest weekend to you all, hoping that you get to take advantage of some extra time off, too!  A special thank you to Darci, April & the other hosts of this link-up.
(And for so much support of our heart & soul looks last week, I took advantage of letting my hubby know that I clearly am not the only mom out there who has a need to match my mini!).
