Being Brickner : Five on Friday

Five on Friday

TGIF, & happy one week until Halloween!!  We have had quite the busy week our way, it has flown by & we are not complaining a bit.  Tonight we have Waverly's halloween party to start off a festive week of fun, can't wait to celebrate & to see all the little ones in their costumes.
Here are our FIVE ... 

ONE.  I am so honored to be working with Parenting Magazine this week, as a kick-off to their new "glam mom" series.  They will be featuring different mom bloggers each week, all talking about their beauty routines plus how they have changed since having children (something we can all relate to!).  The link can be found here! :)

TWO.  We were able to fit in one more trip to the pumpkin patch, I can't get over how seriously Waverly Maye takes this whole pumpkin thing.  She loves to pick them up all on her own, carrying them back & forth from her wagon like its her job.  We took a couple home this time, they are on our porch & every single time we get home Waverly likes to sit on hers to say "cheese!".  Love her.
 
 
THREE.  We had friends over for brunch last weekend & I made these french toast sticks for the kids.  Waverly went for the syrup first, it obviously got all over her, but it was well-worth it.  They were delicious, we definitely recommend the recipe!
 
 
FOUR.  Our weather has been so unpredictable lately, warm one day & freezing the next (am I allowed to complain yet?!).  We took advantage of one of our warmer days for some painting in the backyard, Waverly spotted this Elmo book at Target the other day & we were so excited to try it out!

 
And then she put the paint in her mouth, just to look up at me with that "I'm going to test you" face.  Toddlers. ;)
 
 
FIVE.  We have family pictures this weekend, something that can either go really well or the other way around.  Crossing our fingers!!  My sweet & talented friend Jess sent Waverly the cutest bows from her recent fall line, they are perfect for the season.  I hope to share some great pictures soon!
 
Happy weekend everyone, hope it's a good one!
XO

  14. Congrats on the Parents magazine thing! That's awesome. I can tell you exactly how my routine has changed - it no longer exists! :) We just did fall family photos last weekend too. I'm also crossing my fingers they turn out. Both kids were in good moods and I didn't have a meltdown, so I think that's a success!
