Friday Five 8/16/19

We have had a GREAT week around here! With Bryant sick last week, I was going absolutely stir crazy so I was excited to have a few days to get out of the house and get back to normal.

  1. Ginnie’s New House

My grandmother decided this year it was time to downsize. She got the cutest little apartment and my aunt and mom have spent the last few weeks working hard to fix it up. It’s so weird to think she’s not in the house I grew up with her in, but I know she will love her new place just as much as it becomes home!

2. Baby Led Weaning Update

We set a goal for Bryant to try 100 foods before he turns 1 and this week we hit 50 foods! He is doing so good, and loves to eat. There really hasn’t been a food he hasn’t liked so far (which I know won’t last, but don’t rain on my parade) and I love watching him try new foods and textures. This past week we tried quinoa which was a MESS but he really seemed to like it once he got past the texture.

3. Back to School Fusion

We initiated the 6th graders into the youth group this week and it was just pitiful. Taylor always thinks of something gross to dump on their heads or make them eat! It’s hilarious but it makes them stronger in the end : )

Getting Back in the Kitchen

After Bryant was born, and trying to adjust to our new life and routine, we kind of stopped cooking for a while. We ate out a lot or would cook really basic stuff. This month I challenged myself to start cooking again, and I have loved it! This week we tried some new recipes, some tried and true recipes and B even made biscuits last weekend! I’m gonna do a post soon about some of the recipes we’ve tried, so be on the lookout for that.

New Additions to Our Home

With Ginnie moving, she wasn’t able to take all her furniture, so I got her China cabinet. I don’t have one of my own, so I was excited to get something like this from her. I love to entertain, so I have a lot of plates and serving pieces, and I’m happy they all have a home now.

Another addition at the house is our baby gate! We went as long as we could, but we couldn’t avoid it any longer. Bryant wasn’t a fan when we first got it but he is used to it now! And I like that this one is a neutral color and kind of blends in with our current decor. Highly recommend!

Random Saturday: Fixing Ginnie's Car & a Late Breakfast

Saturday morning, we tried to sleep late, but ended up getting up around 8:30. It was just as well because Ginnie (my grandmother) was having car trouble the night before and B was in charge of fixing it! We got dressed and headed over to her house, and then took the car to Auto Zone.

B is so good at fixing things... I'm really good at being his cheerleader.

It was so hot outside! I just can't get over this heat. I absolutely love summer, but this is just miserable.

Oh well, guess that's what summer in the south is supposed to be!

When we finished with the car, we treated ourselves to a late breakfast at Waffle House. Love Saturday mornings with my B!
