Being Brickner : Five on Friday

Five on Friday

Happy Friday, everyone!!  I am beyond excited that the ladies have brought this weekly link-up back, random lists are my my favorite & perfect for this time of year. :)

ONE.  We took Waverly Maye for our first pumpkin patch visit of the season last weekend!  There are so many in our area but we decided to kick off the fun at a farm that has free hayrides, tee-pees, animals, & a bounce house.  Waverly loved it, specifically the bounce house, so much so that we didn't get any real time with the pumpkins like, at all.  We had the best time though, we did manage to get her to check out the hay & plan to continue the fun with another one this weekend.  One that doesn't have a bounce house. ;)


TWO.  I saw these ballet flats on Little Baby Garvin a few weeks back & couldn't resist them, I am always looking for a good flat that is super comfortable.  They are even better than I expected in person, so comfy (kind of like walking on air!), & I get compliments every time I wear them.  Such a great purchase!

THREE.  For the most part, potty training is going well, as long as we are at home. ;)  Waverly is all about going potty pretty much just to get her treats afterwards, she tries to play me all the time by walking in the bathroom, pretending to pee & then yelling "yay!" before she comes to tell me she needs her treat.  Smart girl.  We have switched to fall m&m's, I also added them to our canister to make a fun fall snack mix!


FOUR.  In other treat news, I should have known this was coming, Waverly fell in love with ice cream over the summer (like her mama) & there is no turning back.  I'm still rolling with it since it really isn't cold yet at all, plus we added Halloween sprinkles to make it an acceptable fall treat.  She took hers & mine, too.


FIVE.  We had the biggest breakthrough ever this week, we found a nightlight that Waverly loves & it has been a life-changer!  After two weeks of brutal nights because of one little lady scared of the dark, it looks like we have finally turned a corner.  The entire house is thrilled! :)  The nightlight can be found here, we definitely recommend it, I'm planning to share some of Waverly's new room soon & will share that, too!

Thanks to Natasha & the ladies for hosting.  Wishing you all a happy & fun weekend!

  1. I think that a bounce house at a pumpkin patch is the best idea ever! I can never get Cam out of them!! I am so glad you found something to help everyone sleep!! We have always had Cam's room pitch black, so when we bought a video monitor, the tiny light on it freaked him out....luckily, he's fine now, but I was afraid that we would have to build a room with no windows for him in the new house!

  3. You are so lucky that you have so many pumpkin patches in your area! We took Mia to our one and only earlier this week, and it was SO fun! I can't wait to post about it! And I kind of wish we could go to more, ha ha!
    If you ask us, ice cream is acceptable year 'round!! ;)

  6. I mean, really, who doesn't want treats? Like all the time. I don't let A try to go potty unless she initiates it. I don't want to give her a treat (candy) because she turns 180 degrees when she has sugar. Maybe I can make her something? Or switch to a sugar free item? I don't know. Haha. I'm rambling in your comments. Let's just say, I'm keeping up with the Friday theme ;)

  7. We have an icecream lover too! I once bought us a cone to share at the zoo, and he now thinks that every time we go to the zoo, we get icecream! I can't blame him!

  8. I wish a night light would help our big girl bed transitioning!!! If she can see us, she wants us but I LOVE that nightlight and those flats!

  9. What a cute little nightlight! I'm glad she's doing better sleeping with a little bit of light in her room -and I'm sure you and your hubby are both very relieved! :) Enjoy your weekend at another pumpkin patch!

  11. Elyse is definitely an ice cream lover...which is why we don't eat it at home unless she's in bed! ha! That nightlight is adorable...but can I ask...how did you know it was fear of the dark? Elyse is having little bit of a sleep transition and I'm trying to figure out what's going on. She goes to sleep just fine in the dark so I don't think that's it...but I'm wondering if she's scared when she wakes up in the middle of the night!

  12. The potty fakeout just kills me! What a smarty!!! And I'm trying to convince my husband that Arden NEEDS those Minnetonka boots as a big sister present. Sounds logical to me! ;) Love the ice cream pic too!!! Have a great weekend with that little cutie!

  13. We're still all about the ice cream over here. It's a habit I think I'm encouraging way too much, but I love ice cream. I suggest it more than Reed does.
