High Five for Friday #69 | Family Fun

H54F - A weekly link up, hosted by Cup of Tea, Bright on a Budget, Coffee with Caitlin & Della Devoted

Welcome to High Five for Friday – hosted by me, Tif, and Della! If you want to know more, read about it here!

This week’s featured blogger is Johanna from The Sirois Family! She is married and has two adorable girls!! Her blog is just peppered with fun stories about their sweet family and the adventures they’re having. Be sure to swing over and say hello!!!

This week was a fun week! No funny stories like last week’s cat burglar story, but we had fun nonetheless!

1. Saturday we hit the road and drove to Pinehurst for the Concours d’Elegance (that’s a fancy word for a fancy car show). It was definitely a fun activity for my husband, who loves cars, but I enjoyed it too! Elizabeth had fun running up and down the golf course hills. The only downer? Trying to accommodate a potty-training toddler in her many “I have to go potty!” runs. A toddler who REALLY doesn’t actually need/want to go +  a pregnant lady, all crammed in a tiny porta-john? Horrible. I didn’t want to touch anything.

Spent the morning looking at beautiful cars. #pinehurst #concoursdelegance #weekendfun

2. This week I have been battling some serious fatigue. I really should take naps when I can, because I will need all the sleep I can get. But I’m finding myself nodding off several times a day. No bueno!!

3. I FINALLY found the perfect Spring purple shade – OPI’s Lucky Lucky Lavender. I bought it on a whim at Target (as you do most things at Target) and love it. And why do OPI polishes dry so fast? Maybe it’s just me, but it feels like Essie polishes take FOREVER to dry down. OPI was dry within a minute or two. Perfection! I raved about this polish and a few other things in my April Favorites, if you missed it.


4. We are about as good as we’re going to get for Baby Boy’s arrival. The last detail is hauling the car seat down and giving it a clean and install. Tomorrow our entire church is hosting a baby sprinkle (that’s what you call a baby shower for kid #2. Who knew?) and we’ll then be MORE than ready for this boy. Elizabeth and I spent some time watching YouTube videos of other big sisters getting to meet their baby brothers in the hospital. It was fun! We may have both been misty-eyed.

5. Last night my husband and I had a really FUN date night! We went out to our favorite Mexican restaurant for Cinco de Mayo (not really planned… couldn’t quite figure out why everything was so bustling right at 5:00!) and then we went to a Hillsong United concert! Tons of fun! We had great seats right pretty close. Any Hillsong concert is amazing – it’s a giant praise and worship concert, where thousands are all singing together. Such a great experience! I’m not sure how the baby did with all the bass pounding… I kept waiting to start labor! But we survived it. We didn’t get home until midnight, so I’m basically a walking zombie, but it was totally worth it.


What were you up to this week? Let me know!

    Yay for the impending arrival or baby boy and for presents!!! Hehehe! I love Hillsong and had no clue they were in Gboro last night!

  2. keri says:

    Love Hillsong so much!! That nail color is perfect- I have been searching for a new one so I’ll have to try. Have a great weekend!

  3. Jess says:

    I’m exhausted just reading about your week! No wonder you need some naps! And being pregnant with a toddler in a porta potty sounds like a nightmare–you are one brave lady! haha I hope you get some rest this weekend!

  4. Whitney Jordan says:

    That shade of purple is so pretty!! Olive has deemed purple her favorite color so I’ll have to look for it. We had a sprinkle for Fletcher and it was so nice! Hooray for celebrating those second babies. Hope you get to squeeze in a nap or two this weekend and have a wonderful Mother’s Day!

  5. Whitney says:

    Oh my – I can’t even imagine the toddler/porta potty situation without being grossed out. You’re a trooper!! 🙂 We were at a festival today that only had porta potties…Paul came out of his, shook his head and said, “You don’t want to know.” LOL.

    Hope you got lots of fun stuff at your sprinkle! Happy Mother’s Day, friend!

  6. Ashley says:

    Glad you had a great time at the concert! I am with you on the port-a-potties! Ewwwwwwww! LOL. I hope you get some rest! Enjoy your “sprinkle”!
