Friday Five

It's finally Friday! So hard working a full week after two short weeks. Oh wait, that's right, I didn't work a full week because I am headed to the girls 12 month check ups. I can't wait to see how much they have grown since their 9 month appointment.

Today I am linking up with Karli and Liz.
Onto my Friday Five.

One. I was perusing Instagram yesterday and I saw the cutest necklace on my friend Stacey's Instagram. I asked her about it, went to the shop online and fell in love with two necklaces. So friends, help me choose. I love love love macarons. They are my favorite dessert/treat of all time. So much so that it was the favor and treat at my bridal shower. I never pass up a good macaron. So which do you like best?

Two. Speaking the girls 12 month appointments, I need to get their stats for their passports. And speaking of passports, I need to get their paperwork filled out ASAP and taken down to the post office. I can't experience any delays as we leave in 3 months from today. I.CAN'T.WAIT. Take me to Mexico. And my husband needs to renew his because it expires a month or so after we get back and it's frowned upon to leave that little time.

Three. I have a date with the mountain this weekend. It snowed over 21 inches in the last two days and more is on the way, so it should be a pretty amazing day up there. And then we have a friends children's birthday party to attend. It is a bouncy house place full of slides, bounce houses, etc. The girls are a little young, but we were told they would be old enough for the toddler room and to sit on our laps. Plus this is cupcake number two for the girls. Last weekends had mixed feelings by the girls.

Four. I am in search of a new pair of running shoes for the gym. I would love to run outside right now, but it's bitter cold right now (highs in the 20s and 30s) and nobody has time for that with twins. I don't do Nike because I have too high of an arch for them. So send me your suggestions on pairs you love. I want them for running (duh), elliptical, weights and what not.

Five. NFL playoffs are this weekend and I am super excited. Not that I have ANY stake in it. Being a Niners fan this year sucks as we have the worst management and owners. But that is a whole other post in and of itself. But I love NFL football and we are getting down to the best of the best. I am hoping that the Panthers or Cardinals will play anyone BUT the Patriots (#patriotshater #tombradyhater) in the Super Bowl. Which also means that my families annual Super Bowl party is a month away from today. We didn't get to go last year as the girls got out of the NICU a few days before and were super cranky. This year we will be there.

And that's that for my Friday Five. I hope you all have an amazing weekend.


  1. Those necklaces are adorable!! I think I would choose the one on the left. I love the right one too but the left is just too cute with all the little colorful ones. Yay for snow and getting out and on the mountain. Have so much fun. Can't wait to hear about the girl's 12 month appointments. I'm sure they were rockstars. :) Have a great weekend!

    1. My sister texted me saying the one on the left too!

      And a Happy Birthday to Emmy! When is her 12 month check up?

  2. Okay I love the cupcake pictures! Haha one of them is so impressed and the other is just, "whatever." (I would use their names but of course I can't tell them apart!)

    I can't wear Nikes because they're too narrow for me. I got fitted for running shoes at a running store and ended up with some Asics that I love! You could get fitted somewhere and see what they recommend, or try out some Asics and see if any of them work.

    1. Haha, Sutton is the "whatever" and Avery loved it!

      Good idea on getting fitted for running shoes. Never thought of it. I will try that. Thanks for the suggestion.
