Being Brickner : Five on Friday

Five on Friday

Happiest Friday!!  I like to try to find a positive in everything & have decided that if there is an upside to school on a Saturday, it's how much more exciting the following weekend is!  I cannot believe I get TWO entire days to spend with my girl, best feeling ever. :)

Here's what else is getting us excited lately ...

ONE: Ponchos.  When these ponchos popped up on Gap's website a couple of weeks ago, I couldn't get them in the cart fast enough!  I mean, a toddler in a poncho?!  Need I say more?
 

Even though we are spring-ready, it's outfits like these that make the winter weather a little bit easier to deal with!  If only I could fit in those furry boots & wear them forever. :)
 
TWOSadie Sky Headbands.  My sweet friend, Jess, at Sadie Sky Boutique sent this adorable headband for Waverly to wear & we love it!!  Her prints are so unique yet versatile at the same time, & the leather fabric is just my favorite ever.  So very on trend & still super comfy.  Be sure to check out her shop, there really is so much goodness there!
 
 
THREEPhones ... real & play ones.  If there is one thing Waverly Maye has picked up from us, it's how to use a phone.  This girl is obsessed with a capital O, she puts it to her ear with the cutest little "HEL-O" followed by her own version of a really good conversation.  It's precious, really - until she calls everyone in your phone a few times a day or throws a fit when you won't give it to her because you know, you need it yourself (imagine that!).  So we have tried EVERY toy phone out there & have had the best luck with this V-tech smart phone.
 
 
She loves it, it's a win & ... I'm seriously in trouble. :)
 
FOURTaco Soup.  We love, love mexican food at our house so when Christina at Carolina Charm shared this recipe on her blog, I knew it would be perfect for us!  We made the crock pot version last weekend & it was seriously delicious, plus it lasted three days!
 
 
 FIVE:  Going Green!!  I am getting so excited for St. Patricks Day, its always been one of my favorites since it means spring is near & green is always a good color for a redhead. :)  I cannot wait to dress Waverly Maye in a cute little green ensemble, we have already picked up a few pieces from this line at Gymboree.  The entire line is too perfect for the holiday!
 
Of course, want to thank Darci, Liz & the other sweet ladies of this link-up!  We wish everyone the best weekend, they are predicting some more spring-like weather our way so we CANNOT WAIT!  Hope you get to enjoy some, too!
XOXO

  14. I thought about getting Marli a poncho but the poor thing would just drool all over it. She is teething and putting everything in her mouth right now. Those boots on her though...sheesh! Too cute. My little one can't get enough of my phone either so I get her a fake one to play with. Have a lovely weekend! I wanna take part in a link up too...how do I get initiated into this? :)
