Five on Friday :: Anniversary, Hair, Shopping & Selfie Sticks!

Happy three-day weekend!  We had originally planned to get out of town and head to the beach, but since the weather forecast is calling for rain the entire weekend I think we are going to stay home.  Way too much trouble to pack everything up just to stay inside.  Not sure what we will do now, but I'm confident it will include grilling some burgers (major pregnancy craving) and eating out a bunch! 

What are your plans?


Our six year wedding anniversary just happens to be tomorrow!  Is it sad that we have no real plans to celebrate since we planned on being away, but I'm sure we will figure something out...even if it's with the Jackster!  By the time our wedding anniversary rolls around at the end of May we are kind of exhausted from celebrating Jack's birthday, Mother's Day and my birthday that all fall just a few weeks before! 

Jason's last day at his current job is today and first day of his new position is this Tuesday so to say May has been busy is a major understatement.  I think grilling burgers at home {in our comfies} actually sounds like a stellar wedding anniversary celebration!


I'm over on Houston Moms Blog today talking about 5 occasions you should splurge on professional hair and makeup in honor of our new sponsor Blownaway, a new service to Houston {also in Dallas and Atlanta, I believe} that comes to YOU! 


Last Saturday I attended a baby "sprinkle" for one of my dear friends who is having a little boy next month.  I love her {and her hostesses} creativity on this one!  The theme was all things Nerds and Smarty Pants.  Think math equations, Periodic Table of Elements, textbooks and lots of glasses!  This is how they are decorating the nursery too.  I should have done a better job at taking pics. 

We were having too much fun with Allison's selfie stick and our nerd glasses.  And the favors were nerds in a little science flask!


I'm obsessed with this striped maternity dress from Gap.  It's so comfy and I really love the "Midi" length so for us shorties, we don't have to worry about dragging on the floor or getting it hemmed.  I love it so much that I ordered it in Navy too!  I ordered my standard size on this one and it fits great with belly room!

Jason hates when I wear maxi dresses because he thinks they aren't very flattering on me, but until he can be the pregnant one, he doesn't get a say!  Love you honey!

Gap is doing 40% off all regular priced items this weekend using the code SUMMER.  If you are shopping maternity like me, don't miss this Gap/Rosie Pope collaboration dress either!  Perfect for work!


Finally, if you live in the Houston area and are looking for something to do tomorrow, Carolina Creek Christian Camp is having their annual Open House Camp Day from 10am-4pm, rain or shine!  This is a great day to meet the staff, tour the camp and if you are brave enough, try the water park, zipline and other fun activities.  My mom and stepdad had something to do with this camp {wink, wink}...they founded it themselves so Jack has had a spot secured since before he was born.  Whenever he gets old enough I know he will have a blast...especially if he gets to stay in the new Monkey cabin!
