Five on Friday!

What a wonderful, wonderful week! So much goodness was squished into the past few days and it's going to continue through the weekend because we are on our way to celebrate 3 years of marriage in a little cozy cabin in the mountains!

So lets get down to it!
- ONE - To kick off the week I got all dolled up on Sunday for Christmas pictures by my sweet friend Lindsey Regan Thorne who is ridiculously talented at making people pretty. No seriously, I've lost more than half of my hair postpartum and my skin is borderline reptilian these days yet she worked her magic. Gosh, I love this girl and can't recommend her enough for beauty services!
Lindsey also happens to be the gorgeous and stylish mama behind one of my absolute favorite blogs ever, Be Pretty! Between her hair + makeup skills, trendy wardrobe styling, precious little boy Henry and her interior design talent, Lindsey's blog will have you scrolling through posts for hours. You can also find her on Instagram {here}!
 
- TWO - Our mini is 6 months old today!! I cannot believe it! More pictures to come from our photoshoot with Allison Kuhn Photography!
- THREE - I am really excited to make these Easy Cheesy Bacon Biscuit Pull Aparts this weekend! Calories don't count on vacation, right?
- FOUR - I missed my 3 seconds of fame yesterday. My insta-friend Hailey tagged me a screen shot of my pregnancy announcement photo on the news! And no, we weren't cool enough to have help from a rapper to announce our pregnancy. Apparently the story was Vanilla Ice helped a couple announce their pregnancy with "Ice Ice Baby" and then the news station ran a slideshow of other creative ways to announce a pregnancy afterwards.
 
- FIVE - A few weeks ago we were given a Merino Kids Baby Sleep Sack to review and it has quickly become one of our favorites. It arrived just as the temperatures started to drop and we needed a heavier sack for Caroline to sleep in at night. My favorite feature is the hidden zipper! The soft and cozy sack unzips from the bottom for quick diaper changes, opens flat for easy dressing and has the ability to be buckled into a car seat or stroller. Oh, and it's for ages 0-2 so she won't grow out of it as quickly as her other sleep sacks!

  2. Girl ... I have made those biscuits before and they are insanely delicious. Perfect for chilly mountain weather, too! You look gorgeous in that first photo. I seriously need to ask LRT to hook a sister up with tips for hiding post-preg bald spots. Mine are out of control!
