Five things Friday!


1//Bloodline and House of Cards. We binge-watched Bloodline in a week and I absolute loooove it. I love it even more than True Detective, which by the way, hated the finale, and really the whole season was one big cluster-mess. But Bloodline was SO good, I can’t wait until next season. And House of Cards, oh my lanta, that show keeps making us jump up from our seats. We’re currently in the midst of season two and I can’t get enough. I love how it keeps throwing me for a loop, and ooh frank is just so manipulative, and I know hes an awful human being, but is it weird that I always find myself rooting for his plans to go through?! I know, I’m a weirdo…its just SO good. Watch it. Netflix shows are currently much higher on my tv love than any network show.


2// My oldest is four and starting pre-k this fall, and yes I am in absolute despair, denial, and freaking out just thinking about him being away from me. Anyhoo, we have him signed up to attend this one school, its priced great because its on base, so we get military pricing, however, Ive heard its not a very strong curriculum..what should they be teaching them in pre-k? Because I found another school that I reallllly want to send him too, (that happens to be triple the price…of course, but both my husband and I are firm believers that you really can’t put a price on education), they teach them a little bit about each subject that he would be studying once he got to elementary school, and they just have a really solid curriculum, with lots of rave reviews from moms. I’m kind of torn on what to do..I know what the obvious choice seems, but its further away, despite what I mentioned above it IS so much more expensive, and also my hormones are flying so making sound decisions right now seems impossible. Sometimes I feel like a child and wonder how I’m aloud to be this responsible mom who has to make adult decisions about my kids’ lives and well-being! 😉


3//I’ve started making freezer meals for after the babe gets here. I woke up in the middle of the night this week, and couldn’t fall back asleep for almost three hours, my brain was going haywire, thinking about all the things I still need to get done, (probably creating a few silly ones too, because that’s how I work!) but getting these freezer meals done asap is a huge one, as well as going through all my kids clothes and shopping for them for fall, I don’t want to have to worry about them needing clothes (because they grow out of everything so quickly!!) come October. Ive already bought their halloween costumes, and we’ve started they’re Christmas shopping, so Im’ on a roll. Wish my brain got that memo at 3:30am.

4//Diaper Bags! I desperately need one still…I know there are SO many out there, and maybe I’m being picky, but I really don’t want to pay a crazy amount for one, but at the same time, I don’t want it to actually look like a diaper bag. capiche? does anyone have any that they love or can recommend? I have a few in mind, but I’m just not sure I really love any of them. And I definitely need an actual diaper bag, not just an over-sized tote, Ive tried that before, and it just doesn’t work for me, I need compartments and organization people!

5// this week for dinner, we made this smoky chicken flatbread with creamy feta and also these killer caramelized pork tacos with pineapple salsa.  In case you’re looking for summer dinner ideas, I recommend both for sure. Those tacos are being added to our dinner rotation!
