Five on Friday

Want to join in on the Five on Friday link up or Oh Hey, Friday link-up, check out the bottom of this post for the links ;)

My Observant Husband...
   So Darren and I were having a random conversation the other day (which is very typical for us).  We were talking about a neighbor we have and how we wonder what he does on his porch.  Then Darren says "I wonder what they do every couple of weeks that weighs their hummer down so much in the back.... have you noticed it?". What? Of course I haven't noticed it and I'm pretty sure he is the only one that has noticed it.  My neighbor probably doesn't even realize it himself.  He is pretty much the most observant person I've ever met... which is a great thing... and a bad thing all at the same time lol


This picture is a little glimpse of my mail/paper problem.  I mean... let's be real, it happens to a lot of us.  Nothing like starting to put your things together for taxes and realizing that you have no organization at all.  I really need to find a system.  Any good ideas that have worked for you?  I have pinned several ideas in hopes of incorporating them very soon.  My problem is that even though we've opted for paperless on a lot of our bills, for some reason, they still send me a bunch of stuff so I don't actually open everything when it comes because I know I just pay for everything online.  Then I have the ginormous stack of medical bills that I have yet to file.  If I get it all together and it actually works, I'll make a post on it lol because I'm sure I'll be super proud of myself.  I think one of the problems is that our office is behind closed doors so it's easy to put stuff in there "to take care of later" while I'm trying to straighten up our living space and then the piles just keep growing.  Anyone else have this problem? I know I'm not the only one!

Maddox and Mom

This week, we went to lunch with my mom and she hung out for the afternoon.  We worked on her logo for her business and I must say, it's super cute.  I'm branding her business, so next, I will work on her business cards and eventually a website.

Maddox is getting  better with tummy time.  Once I changed him to the boppy from just one of those tummy time mats, he lasts a good 10 minutes opposed to 2 hah. Apparently he has my patience level.  God, help us!  I'm pretty sure he's super close to rolling over on his belly (which makes me nervous).  He also reached up and pulled the little elephant ring on his play mat and made it play music a few times.  It's so fun to watch him learn every day.  The play mat must have been hard work because the next thing I knew, he was really quiet and I checked and he had zonked out.  Sweet little thing... I'm so glad it's not physically possible to kiss those cheeks off because I sure try.

    I'm not really looking forward to this weekend.  I mean... I always look forward to the weekend because that means Darren is home with us but I mean what we have planned.  I will share more on it next week as I want to give it it's own post.  It really is a good thing.  It's just going to be a long, busy weekend.  Can you guess what we are doing??  And DON'T guess if you already know! ;)


   I read a post the other day on Facebook that was asking about the movies that people can watch over and over again.  I thought that would be fun to include here.  What are the movies that you can watch over and over?  I have several but here are a few... 
      ~You've Got Mail.  That was when movies were good and you didn't have to worry about being
        embarrassed if you saw it with your mom lol which I did when it came out in theaters :). And it's
        Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks!
      ~Back-Up Plan.  I love J-Lo. And there are parts of this movie where I just laugh so hard.  Oh
        and fyi... Alex O'Loughlin is in an episode of Criminal Minds.  So, if you like him...which how
        could not?? Hello... Hawaii 5-0? don't watch it (the Criminal Minds episode that is)! lol 
      ~What to Expect When You're Expecting.  I have to fast forward when the one girl loses her
         baby but other than that, I love this movie. And it's even better since I've been through it and I
         just sit there like "yep..." lol  and again... J-Lo lol
      ~Pride and Prejudice. The one with Keira Knightly.  And who doesn't love Mr. Darcy?
      ~The Holiday. Sweet movie.... and you can't really go wrong with Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, and
        Jack Black all in one movie.  Eh... Kate Winslet is alright too.
      ~The Wedding Date. I love this movie.
      ~27 Dresses.  Who doesn't like Katherine Heigl and James Marsden?
      ~Letters to Juliet
And yes.... they are all chick flicks :). I own them all but I still have to watch them when they come on TV. Wait... I used to.... we don't have cable anymore lol  And as I started listing, I just kept thinking of more but I capped it off at 8.  haha you're welcome... If you haven't seen one of these, do yourself a favor and go to redbox tonight ;)

Link-Ups. If you have a blog and want to link up with other bloggers posting... Check out these Friday Link-Up parties :)


  1. I could seriously watch those movies over and over!

  2. I love those movies you can watch over and over but watch it as if it was your first time watching it. My biggest movie is Step Brothers or Wedding Crashers.

  3. Your husband reminds me of mine! My hubs thinks our neighbors are dealing drugs. :) I laughed out loud when I read about your husband's observations.

  4. I think you husband has a vivid imagination!

  5. Thanks for visiting my blog! I have to admit we have a terrible paper/mail hoarding problem too! It happens so fast and before you know it there are tiny stacks of it everywhere! Your little man is adorable! Happy Weekend!
