f i v e

These are a bit blurry  but I couldn't help but share on Instagram! Mia was so stinking excited and smug to be sitting in a bumbo! It's like she knows that's a "baby" chair! But what I really want to talk about here is Mia's adorable bow! I love supporting new shops and Sweet Angel Kreations is offering 15% off your purchase for her grand opening! Be sure to enter 'GRAND15' at checkout! 

Who uses this app? I just downloaded it a couple days ago and I think I'm in love? But I need more details from those of you who are pros at it! From what I understand, you gain points by walking into certain stores, scanning different items or buying product... and those points earn you gift cards! So who uses this app and please share some pointers so that I can get the best use out of it :)

I realize that these are for kids... and I bought them for Mia because I thought they'd be a great snack/treat. But truth be told? I can't stop eating them!! Mia loves them, too, when I decide to be a nice mom and share with her ;) Seriously though. SO GOOD!

Scandal
You guys, Eric and I blew through the 2 seasons on Netflix in less than 2 weeks. We rarely have time to watch TV together so that is really saying somethin'. And that somethin' is that I'm obsessed! And to be honest, Eric could really care less. Ah! So I had no one to squeal, stress and die over each episode with. I really should start a netflix club. You know, like book club? Except a bunch of girls get together and stay up all night long watching shows, eating junk and talking about everything together! P.S. Do you think stuff like that (as in what happens on Scandal) really happens in real life? Ah! 

Date Night!
 This really isn't a new concept in our house... but I'm just loving that we have one night set aside for dates, no matter what! And if I don't feel like cooking that night? No guilt here because date night! I'm in the mood for ice cream? Date night! I admit that we aren't the best at getting a babysitter, so half of our date nights are really family date nights, but that's okay! Except I really need to find the perfect teen to become our weekly babysitter. But I digress. I'm just really appreciating the little moments I get to enjoy with Eric! 
Linking up with The Good Life. A. Liz Adventures. Carolina Charm. & Hello! Happiness for Five on Friday.

I baby sat a 3 month old this week and Axel was climbing in his old bouncy chair and just totally laughing because he knew he was too big for it! So funny!!
We are also big on family date nights because Axel screams for anyone if we leave him for more than 30 minutes. Seriously hoping he'll grow out of it soon.

She must be a peanut! No way Shelbs could fit in the Bumbo anymore. We gave ours back to my cousin who let us borrow it.

Ashley said...

Scandal is SO GOOD!! I haven't watched it consistently, I think I need to start from the beginning.

Cece said...

We started in on scandal a few weeks ago but you really got us beat!! We are still on Season 2. I blame my husband for getting me hooked.

Sarah said...

The excitement in her face, so cute, she's so happy to be sitting up on her own!

I share you excitement/love for Scandal, my husband LOVES it too, which is good for me. Can't wait to watch last nights episode tonight.

Have you seen Black List? You HAVE to watch it, not sure if it's on netflix or not, but it's almost better then scandal...I said almost.

Leslie said...

I've been wandering about Scandal. Is it really that good? My husband and I are wanting to start a new series.

Julie said...

So very important to find a babysitter. My SIL refuses to allow anyone but family watch her girls, which since they watch them during the week they need their own time so they never go out on their own. Yes family nights are great but you do need the two of you time :)

Lauren said...

Elyse always gets such a kick out of the "baby toys!" My mom has a bouncer at her house for my niece and Elyse loves to climb in it and pretend to sleep. So precious!

Sarah said...

I need to know more about this shopkick thing too! Sound awesome!

Linzi Scarsella said...

Oh my! Mia is so beautiful in those top pictures! That fruit rope sounds yummy too!

Alyx said...

Oooh, tell me more about this shopkick thing!

Cami said...

I will totally join your Netflix club. I just made Scandal my treadmill show, and OH MY GEE. I can't even handle it, it's so good.

Sarah @ The Not Quite Military Wife said...

I love that she is sitting in the Bumbo! And I'm so jealous of your date nights! I've been craving those lately!

jack!e @ The Wife Life said...

Mia is just THE cutest, happiest little girl!! Love it! And I have a few things picked out from Sweet Angel Kreations I am planning on buying for my little one on the way, too!!

Ech and Will said...

I love Mia's cute expressions! I've never heard of Shopkick. I can't really use it over here, but I figure I'll be able to try it out next time I'm in the US again.
