Five on Friday :: Book Club, Boys, Yoga Pants & Eye Shadow Palettes

It's Fri-Yay!  I'm looking forward to a somewhat relaxing weekend and getting to celebrate all of the amazing Dad's in my life - my husband included!


Ever since becoming a mom, I haven't been much of a reader.  I hate this, but between lack of sleep and trying to juggle too many things, it seems that every night when I climb into bed {when I would normally read} I'm just too tired and only want to sleep or turn on mindless TV.

This week I started The Girl on the Train and was instantly hooked.  I've been reading on my lunch break in my car, while Jack watches a cartoon in the afternoon and of course before bed.  I'm reading it as a part of Houston Mom's Blog Summer Book Club - it's a virtual book club so feel free to join in, even if you're not local!


We had our 20 week anatomy scan yesterday!  All looked good and he's definitely a boy!


Hello toddler.  Why does my baby Jack look so grown up all of the sudden?  He is super into books these days.  Anything with cars, trucks, animals or the alphabet!


I'm looking for some maternity yoga capri pants to workout in, run errands and for an upcoming trip to Colorado where I know we will be doing lots of hiking.  Any recommendations on where to shop?

My last pregnancy I was able to make due with my regular size Lululemon capris (I may have sized up), but this time they just aren't cutting it.  It's too uncomfortable to wear the waistband under my belly and if I try to put the band over my belly I feel like I'm suffocating Coffee Bean - ha! 

I just ordered these workout pants, but would love backup options in case they don't work.  More than I wanted to spend, but the reviews were all great so fingers crossed I will agree!


I've been using the Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette for at least 6 months.  I love it and use it almost everyday.  I love it so much that I've already hit pan on some of the colors.  I intended to reorder, until I learned that they have a similar palette in all matte colors - Too Faced Natural Matte Palette!  I love a good shimmer here and there, but I have plenty of options already when I want a little sparkle.

If you like natural matte shades, similar to the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette {which I also love} you should check this one out!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and Father's Day!


Linking up:



  1. I have to check out those two faced sets - I love those brands and they look like my kind of colors!

  2. I really want to read that book!! I just need Duncan to sleep a little better at night first :)

  3. Glad you're enjoying Gone Girl! I read it a few weeks ago & really enjoyed it!

  4. I just bought maternity workout capris by the same brand at Target for $28 and I love them! Belly panel has a great design can be worn up or down.
