It has been forever since I've linked up with April and Christina for Five on Friday, but I am so happy to be back at it today! Here are five very random things...
I wrote this post this week for the Columbia City Moms Blog and I have received so many sweet and encouraging comments! Being a mom is such a blessing, but it doesn't come without its challenges! I think it's so important for everyone to know that there is such a huge mom support group out there! I have really felt the love from so many people since "bearing my soul" in that post! Thank you guys!
We took Chandler to "school" (aka a drop-in mother's morning out) this week for the first time. It was ugly...she cried, I cried...and then we went back two days later and did it again!! (It was just as ugly the second go round). I totally set myself up for this by waiting until we are at the height of the separation anxiety phase. BUT...good news, both days she went she settled down a few minutes after I left and played happily, for about an hour! Baby steps, folks!
Anyone have any tips or tricks for how to get over this hump?

I tried a new recipe last night and we are "putting it in the rotation", as Adam says! Stay tuned, I'll be sharing it this week...mussels and fries!
Chandler is OBSESSED with two things right now...1. her tutu (see photo below) 2. carrying a "purse" on her shoulder...So adorable, right??? WELLLL...it is adorable until you realize that she doesn't want to carry an actual purse. We've bought her an adorable purse...but her "purse" of choice is my hot pink sports bra that she dug out of the dirty clothes basket...an here you have my motivation for getting the laundry done...quickly...
This picture gets me...EVERY time. Our sweet girl looks like a little girl and I love it and hate it all at the same time! She loves to open the shutters every day and stand by the winds and wave to the cars that go by (or the birds, or the trees...she's pretty darn friendly...)
And that's a wrap on my Five on Friday....what are you guys up to this weekend? We have a free weekend and are looking for some fun things to do!
