Five on Friday

It’s MARCH. How is it March?! I can’t believe how fast time is flying. You know what else flew by? This week. Whew! We are so ready for a fun weekend ahead.

one A // We have spring fever over here and I’ve started shopping for warmer clothes for the kids. I snagged these super cute dresses below for Caroline from Amazon and most of them have already arrived this week and I am blown away by the quality. Most of them are from Fiream, a super cute and affordable clothing line that I discovered thanks to Natasha!

Now girl mamas, tell me where I can find inexpensive spandex shorts (in bulk) to go under these dresses!

Spring Dresses

 Dinosaur Cotton Dress ($10) // Boat Dress ($13) // Watermelon Dress ($12)

Lemon Flutter Sleeve Dress ($14) // Bunny Pocket Dress ($12) // Flamingo Dress ($10)

I grabbed this cute sailboat two-piece set for Thomas for $15 too!

one B // The toddler swim line at Target is on point this season!!! This week I picked up some new swimwear while it’s buy one get one 50% off (ends tomorrow!!). For Thomas I got new dinosaur swim trunks, shark swim trunks and a rash guard. And for Caroline I grabbed a new rashguard swimsuit. Here’s a round-up of my favorite toddler swimwear:

two // I read a super interesting New York Times article this week about switching to grayscale on your phone to reduce your screentime. Basically you cut the colors by going gray and your phone becomes more of a tool and less of a source of entertainment. Anyway, I tested it out as an experiment for a day and it totally worked — scrolling through a colorless instagram was a lot less interesting. But I only lasted a day before turning color back on.three // I can’t tell you how much fun it’s been to receive all your messages on my insta stories in response to my easy dinner posts. SO many of you have sent me snaps of your dinner using my recipe this week and it made me happy, happy, happy! Since y’all love it, I’ll see if Chef Caroline is available and interested in posting another easy dinner recipe soon.

Easy recipe this week — sheet pan meal with parmesan pork chops (pork chops coated in panko and parmesan), honey glazed carrots and broccoli. Throw in the oven at 350 for 25 minutes and dinner is served! And clean up is easy, easy, easy!

four // I’m getting my hair cut tomorrow. Matt always says I should go short and I always chicken out and get .025 inches trimmed off instead. Anyway, he sent me these two hair styles and I am warming up to the length. Should I go for it? Stay tuned…

 five // This cutie patootie rocked her dentist appointment this week. She loves going to the dentist, which is hilarious to me because I love going to the dentist too…and I know that’s weird.

I'm so glad spring dresses are coming out in stores. I'm itching to buy matching outfits for my daughter and I now that she isn't so against matching me. LOL. Can't wait to see the new hair!

I have tried broccoli in the oven several times and fail each time. We all love raw broccoli so I really want to love it other ways. We all end up tossing it in the trash though. What do you put on your veggies when they go in the oven? Bc that dinner looks delicious and I need some new easy ideas!Will be purchasing new swim gear for my littles tomorrow for sure. Thanks!!I definitely think you should go for the shorter hair cut. You have one of those faces that could pull off any hair style. I say go for it!!!
