Five on Friday 6.6.14

Happy Friday!  I hope you have an awesome weekend planned!  I’m pretty happy to see the weekend, even though it’ll be a busy one. Summer is always busy, and this year is no exception.


Abbie has her last swim class tomorrow.  I’m both happy and sad about it.  It’s been a great experience for her, but it has been a little tough to fit into our Saturday every week.  Since we both work, it’s our only family time – it’ll be nice to have Abbie’ pool time be flexible now since we’ll just take her to our neighborhood pool to play…plus, we can have friends over to play with her in the pool!  It was nice that our swim class was indoors though…no worries about getting burned there.  Not the case at our neighborhood one!  She hates being slathered in sunscreen, but it has to be done!


I’m kind of in love with this anchor print shirt I picked up for Abbie at Carters…too adorable.

I also snagged the glitter sunnies on super sale at Children’s Place…if you don’t get their emails, you need to.  The have tons of basics at good prices, plus they run great sales…these sunnies were less than a $1!

Occasionally Abbie lets me take selfies with her…but doesn’t smile.  What a silly girl.

I’ve really been working hard at upping my activity this week.  It’s been a hard few weeks of weight loss (or lack thereof), and I’m hoping all this work shows on the scale tomorrow morning.  I’m hitting the grocery store tonight and am really going to work at buying lots of healthy foods and little to no junk (sorry, have to have my weekly sugar cookie).  Hope you all have a fabulous weekend – let me know if you have any snack suggestions for me to add to my list!

Linking up!
