Five on Friday!

Happy Friday!
- ONE - I am loving my new Crystal Faye coffee mug and was excited to participate in an instagram coffee date with so many fabulous ladies this week!
- TWO - Charlotte friends, I have to brag on Lettuce Carry, a new grocery shopping experience offered in our area that allows you to shop online for your groceries and delivered to your door the next day! Lettuce Carry offers over 15,000 diverse items including a complete selection of fresh food (including local and organic), household items, health and beauty supplies, tobacco, beer and wine. I was generously offered $50 to try Lettuce Carry and decided to use this service for the first time earlier this week when I had no time to set foot in a grocery store and was really happy with all of the items that were delivered from avocados and beer to fresh dried fruit and deli cheeses. The cost of each item was about the same price I would pay for Harris Teeter groceries (minus VIC savings) and the delivery is free! Since I love grocery shopping (like, I really love it), I will probably continue to use this service during the weeks that I don't have time to leisurely peruse the Teeter aisles. Lettuce Carry also offers gift cards which make for great gifts for new Charlotte moms!
- THREE - I haven't had to cook much lately because we've had lots of awesome friends bring us meals. So the first real meal I've made since birth requires documentation - grilled chicken salad with cucumber, blueberries, avocado and egg!
- FOUR - Now that Caroline has arrived I am finally able to enjoy the Shandy's that I've been looking forward to for awhile! Since Teeter offers a build-your-own 5 pack, I stocked up on a variety to test out what my go-to shandy for summer will be. I've really loved all of them. Any recommendations on others?
- FIVE - Your weekly dose of Caroline: Aunt Lindsey (and Uncle Ryan) came to visit (and help!) last weekend // Caroline's new Infanteenie Beenie arrived this week and I'm pretty much obsessed // Family selfie during our Emergency diaper run to Target // Charlie gaining more interest in his sister and alerting us for diaper changes
 Wanna join  Darci, April, Natasha and I on the Friday fun? You can link-up on any of our four blogs every Friday! All you have to do is...
  1.)  Write  your post about five things you're lovin' this week (or any five things you want to share!). 2.)  Share the logo on your blog and link back. 3.)  Link-up at the bottom of the post so some new readers can check out your five things and say hello!

  5. Thanks for sharing about Lettuce Carry! Have you tried the order online system at HT where you can pick up at the store? It's also awesome for those weeks when you just don't have time to walk through the store, or when C gets bigger and you just don't want to do a grocery trip with her in tow!

    Love her new hat :)

  6. Those are the cutest coffee mugs! I've been hoping to find a grocery service like that here in the Ft Worth area but, haven't as of yet. Love the pictures of Caroline! Hope y'all have a great weekend!

  7. Your mug is so cute! And I'm going to have to do the build your own Shandy pack thing! I never even thought of that but I always see the section in my grocery store where you can build your own 6 pack! And that picture of Caroline and Charlie... so sweet! Happy Friday!

  8. Oh my gosh! I wish we had a grocery delivery - I do not like grocery shopping in the slightest, it's usually my husbands task!

  12. The most shocking part of this post to me is that you love grocery shopping. Was the sarcasm because I'm not aware of how something like that statement can be true! hahah I HATE HATE grocery shopping like bad mood all day when I know I have to go. I would LOVE a delivery grocery service. I hope they make their way to MO.

    love the picture of Charlie sniffing out his baby sister :)

  13. Oh my gosh, that picture of Charlie + Caroline is just the cutest! I think I've heard commercials for Lettuce Carry {or one really similar} on the radio. I'm always intrigued but I think I might be too picky about my produce to ever let someone do it for me, ha. Have a great weekend and enjoy a few of those shandys. ; )

  14. Our local Lowes Foods does call-ahead grocery pickup and I am seriously considering taking advantage of it with a 3yo at home and another on the way, but groceries delivered to my door sounds even better!! Also, that salad looks divine.

  16. We just tried Sam Adams Porch Rocker, which is shandy-inspired, and it is delicious! They have it at HT.

  23. I have to say that I'm a little jealous of your "Lettuce Carry". While I don't live far from many stores or markets and there's no reason why I can't get out and shop on my own, I've always wondered what it would be like to have food delivered to me. How neat that must be. Oh and Summer Shandy-- yum! I've never been one for "fancy beer", as I call it. I'm usually the Miller Lite/Bud Light Gal, but my BFF turned me onto it and it's delish! Kiss that pretty little one!
