Being Brickner : Five on Friday

Five on Friday

Happiest Friday, friends!!  This week flew by, I had Tuesday off work & got to spend the day with Waverly, my favorite kind of day!  Also in positive news, can you even believe Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away?!  Sign me up for extra mashed potatoes plus macaroni & cheese this year, I am totally pulling the pregnant card on this one. ;)

1.  I recently picked up these black combat boots for Waverly, they are from H&M (in-store) which has been one of my go-to places to shop lately!  I couldn't get them to the register fast enough, I also love that her little sister OR brother can get some use out of them too in approximately three years. 


2.  Also in shoe news, one of my favorite pairs of boots from last year is back at Old Navy.  I love the fur on them plus they are super comfortable & easy to put on!  We got the next size up for Waverly & I can't wait for her to wear them all winter long. :)

3.  Is anyone else's kid obsessed with cell phones?!  We really are trying to work on it, girlfriend wants it all the time so lately we have settled on some educational toddler apps.  Also, she loves "all about that bass" & could sing it all day long while laughing hysterically.



4.  My cravings (& aversions) have been identical this pregnancy to my first.  I normally love sweets & eat them almost every night before bed, but both times, have not even been able to think about chocolate or really sugar in general.  You would think it would help with the weight gain, but I have a NEED for carbs that entirely makes up for it. ;)  This week I was determined to find a sweet I could still eat, so Waverly & I made this poke cake with banana pudding/vanilla wafers.  Both Waverly & I recommend this one, it is absolutely delicious & fun to make!


5.  With all the excitement of this week, I didn't get a chance to share pictures from a wedding we attended last weekend but it was so much fun!  Waverly came to the rehearsal dinner with us on Friday & then my in-laws watched her while we had a wedding date on Saturday.  I actually stayed up past my recent bedtime of 8pm, which really, was a huge deal for us! ;)


Wishing you all a fun & warm weekend!  We have big plans to make appetizers & watch the Alabama game tomorrow, hoping it's a good one, ROLL TIDE!
XO

  1. Cam is OBSESSED with All About the Bass, too....he always asks us to play it!! Haha!! What are some of Waverly's favorite apps? Cam loves the iPad, and it totally saves us when we go out to dinner. (We are THOSE parents.) I am loving both pairs of boots...if only I had a girl!! :) I hope you have a great weekend!! xoxo

  2. Such a gooooood looking couple ;) I'm still loving that bump! I had the same cravings/aversion as you during my first (and a little into my second) trimester! The only "sweets" I could stomach was a few sips of chocolate milk each night.
    Whoa, I can't believe Thanksgiving is less than 2 weeks away. I remember thinking on the first day of November that Thanksgiving seemed so far away and this month would totally drag on... looks like I was wrong!

  4. SO funny - Caleb loves "All About That Bass" too! We sing it during diaper changes, and he just giggles his little face off. I can't wait to find out what you guys are having. A boy would be so fun, and I know you'd have a great time dressing him. But a girl would also be amazing, because you could recycle some of Waverly's AMAZING wardrobe!!! We found out our baby's gender on Wednesday, and I can't wait to share:) So many exciting things happening right now! Happy weekend, sweet friend!

    PS: I second Elise - give me all the caaaaake!!!!

  6. You look beautiful! My 11 month old likes our phones because she knows they play music. Other than that she isn't really interested... I hope to keep it that way! I know some other babies play on theirs.

  11. Elyse definitely LOVES our phones. We finally just had to set some limits and also NOT give it to her everytime she asked...which is so much easier said than done!

  14. You guys look so great in that last photo! You are the cutest pregnant!
    Also, Mason is OBSESSED with the iPad and iPhone. It's actually kinda bad. Are you going to do a toddler app post? Or are there some you recommend? Mason's go to's are always the videos app (to watch Mickey) or the Disney Jr app (to watch Mickey lol) or the Wheels on the Bus. I try to download educational apps but Mickey always wins LOL. Also, what kind of phone case is that?! I'm on the hunt for a good, new, toddler-proof one and I am being so indecisive!

  15. Marcus is obsessed with All About that Bass, too! He calls it "his" song, and asks for it to be played all.the.time.
    Marcus loves himself iPhone/iPad. We try to keep his time on it limited, though, or he could probably blow an entire afternoon on them.
    LOVE those little combat boots.
    And, the last pic of you two is absolutely adorable!
