5 on Friday!

 
I am linking up with April, Darci, Natasha and Christina for their 5 on Friday link up!  One of my best friends, Jen, has been doing this for awhile now and it looks like fun, so here I am =)
 
 
1.  I have a friend who has always wanted to open a bakery in our area and she has started making and selling lactation cookies!  She brought me over a few to try and I fell in love.  So, now I have bought 2 bakers dozens from her.  I can't stop eating them!  Not only are they so yummy, but they really work!  I pumped 7 oz in 4 minutes earlier this week!  If you are in the Houston area and want to try them let me know and I will send you her info!
 
 
 
2.  I started working on a shadow box for Connor's nursery for his "going home from the hospital" outfit and his first blanket. I originally wanted to include his hospital wrist band and a couple other items from the hospital but I think I like it with just the blanket as the back ground and his outfit and hat!  What do you think?
 
 
 
3.  I have a new addiction.  These chips. 
They are the best chips in the history of chips.  If you are in the Houston area and live near a Central Market/HEB, go buy these immediately.  
Can't.stop.eating.them.
 
 
 
 
4.  This weekend marks the beginning of football taking over my husband's life for the next 6 months.  Every year we host my husband's friends NFL draft party at our house, so this Saturday is the day.  10-12 guys will take over my house and will spend the day drinking, eating and choosing their teams....and making a mess of my house ;)  I'm making pulled pork, pasta salad, baked beans and a couple desserts for them then Connor and I are leaving for the day!
 
 
 
5.  We have started the process of transitioning Connor to his nursery and crib and out of our room.  I have been putting him in his crib once or twice a day for naps but have not tried it at night yet.  At first it was not going well but the past 2 days he has done great!  So, I think some night soon we are going to try putting him in their at night.  This Mama is a nervous, emotional wreck when I think about doing that though.  I have loved having him in our room so close to us every night for the past 3 months but I know it's time for this change.  If you have any tips for making the nighttime transition easier I would LOVE to hear them!

Love the shadow box idea, I'm in the "process" of making one too! And for the crib transition...I tried to start the "nighttime" routine when I did the crib transition. Like the bath, jammies, story etc.

Yay!!! I'm so glad you joined the 5 on Friday link-up! ;))

I just bought chips like those and they are my absolute favorite {especially dipped into hummus}!

Hope y'all have a fun weekend!!
