Five on Friday

{ONE} Spring goodies -- Forgive me if I sound like I'm beating a dead horse, but I'm over the cold and over the winter weather. The boys and I ventured back out to Target this week {really needing nothing more than an outing!}, and my spirits were lifted when I saw all the Spring goodness. I'm usually not one to go crazy on the Dollar spot, but wow, they've really stepped up! The Easter aisle had me giddy from just the display. And be warned, the Frosted Sugar Cookie Boom Chicka Pop is addicting!

{TWO} Martha Stewart Weddings -- And next time you're at Target or anywhere that sells mags for that matter, be sure and pick up the new issue of Martha Stewart Weddings {hitting stands tomorrow!}. Could not be more proud to have my best friend's wedding featured! I'm just so honored I was a part of the special day.

{THREE} Dum Dum Cake -- I love me some cake and am all about easy decorating. How fun is this Dum Dum cake?? G loves those little suckers {yes, I may or may not use them as bribes!}, and I'm loving this color palette. Thinking I might need to whip this up for Easter or another Spring occasion.

{FOUR} Apple and Pear Nachos -- As much as I love cake {and any other sweet treat for that matter!}, I've gotten a little out of control with my sweet tooth this pregnancy. I mean, we're talking Skittles and Sour Patch kids on the couch. Every night. So in an effort to eat healthier, but still curb those sugary cravings, I'm hoping these nachos will do the trick. Can I top them with candy??

{FIVE} My boys -- Last night I flew into Dallas to surprise my mom for her 60th. Such a treat for me too! Traveling sans kiddos and some one on one time with my parents. I have to say though, I already miss my little men {and their dad!} so much! We kept laughing last night that the whole time I was flying and then leaving the airport, I kept thinking, "I'm missing something! I forgot something!" What a different experience it is to just have to worry about yourself. Looking forward to some rest and fun this weekend, but already counting down until I see my little family again.


  1. That dumb dumb cake is too cute! I have never thought to use them as decoration on a cake. I have been trolling the easter isle as well. Whether I am at the grocery store/target you can bet I will be going down that isle. It is all so colorful and looks so good. Have fun celebrating your moms birthday!!

  2. Wow, so cool that your friends wedding is in Martha Stewart Weddings! Have a great weekend in Texas!! :)

  3. Just seeing your cheery goodies from Target made me smile!! C'mon spring!! :) So exciting that you were able to surprise your mom with a visit for her 60th! Enjoy your time there!!

  4. Apple & Pear Nachos, yes please! Can't wait to try these! Xo, Stephanie
