We’ve made it! It seemed like it took forever to get here but I am so excited that it’s almost the weekend. Tomorrow, Kyle is teaming up with a bunch of guys at work and playing a turkey bowl football game so Grayson and I will be cheering for him on the side lines. Grayson is also getting his hair cut tomorrow morning, which is in desperate need of a trim. The boy’s hair grows so fast! Now since it’s Friday, I am going to keep it nice and simple around here…. so here are five things for Friday!
1. Grayson turned 15 months yesterday! He had his 15 month appointment and he weights 24lbs (78th percentile) and measures 31 inches long (44th percentile). He’s developing great and hitting every milestone he should so far. He had to get three shots – two of the regular 15 month shots and then recommended by our pediatrician, I got him the flu shot. I didn’t know whether I was going to do this or not since I personally never get the flu shot but since he’s under 2, she highly suggested it. Did you get your child the flu shot?
2. Ever since Kyle and I moved into our apartment we’ve been searching for the perfect kitchen cart. We don’t have much cupboard/counter space so this would really help. I love this rustic one but this one is more in our price range…. and I love the butcher block counter top! This would also be perfect to store all your extra food items if you are hosting Thanksgiving this year!
3. Want a different spin on Apple Pie this year? Try this Apple Crumble Pie. It looks amazing!
4. Have you made your advent calendar yet? I how creative people get with these…. whether it’s putting in small toys for your children, date ideas with your spouse, or acts of service during the holiday season, they are all so different and made based on your lifestyle. I really like this one where she put an act of kindness for each day (includes a free printable for the service cards!). This one is also great if you have a child/children at home. She turned it into a Christmas book countdown so each day your child opens a new Christmas book for you to read together. She also includes free printables for the tags and ideas for Christmas books!
5. If you’re a mom and don’t read Coffee + Crumbs…. you should. All the stories are so relatable and even if you can’t personally relate to some of them, they still make you feel something…..because us mom’s are all in this together. Even if we have different stories, lead different lives, go through different things, it all boils down to the fact that we are all mom’s and we somehow we just get it.
