Five on Friday

Due to literally traveling across the country twice in one week AND everyone in our house getting the stomach flu, I’ve been on a blogging {and social media} hiatus. We are home and feeling better, so it’s time to get back at it.

It’s Friday! Here are five things I am lovin’ lately.

1) March Madness. Every year Blake and I fill out a bracket and have our own March Madness competition. We enjoy watching the games and love a good upset. Go NDSU. Just kidding! ;)

2) Lillian’s first time eating cheese buttons. When we dropped Lilly off in ND last week we had time to leave the airport and grab some lunch. We went to a little cafe that serves German from Russia food. Lillian had a sweet cheese button and a cup of knoephla soup. She could not get enough! She’s definitely her mama’s daughter.

3) Springtime in Alaska. Or as I like to call it, “still winter with some sunshine and a lot more daylight”. It’s still pretty cold here, but the sun is setting around 8:30 PM and we gain about 6 minutes of sunlight a day. Maybe by mid-May most of the snow will melt and everything will finally turn green. Fingers crossed!

4) The Real Housewives of New York City. They’re back and nuttier than ever. I am a reality TV junkie and this is one of my favorites. 

Speaking of reality TV, some of our best friends are going to be on the HGTV series Living Alaska this weekend! We lived in CO with them, moved to AK together, and now we live right down the street from each other (Blake and Nate work together). Check out their TV debut on Sunday night at 10:00 PM e/p.


5) Bandana Bibs. A baby wearing a bandana? Stop it. It’s too cute. I am obsessed with bandana bibs! Not only are they an adorable accessory for your babe, but they double as a drool bib. All teething little ones should have multiple bandana bibs!

I hope everyone has a great weekend. We will be unpacking, doing laundry, grocery shopping, and enjoying a low-key weekend together at home. I can’t wait!

Much Love,

      You’ll definitely have to check it out. I’m hoping they expand their baby section. They don’t have a lot but they do have bandana bibs… and lots of cute stuff for us moms. ;)

    Oh my goodness, that last picture of her is precious! And that description of springtime is basically what it’s like in NoDak right now too! Can it just be summer already?!
