High Five for Friday #85 | Fighting the Urge to Sleep

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! Come, read up on what we’ve been up to this week and get to know some amazing bloggers down below!

Today’s featured blog is Legally Southern! She’s a Kentucky lawyer, newly married, enjoying the fun life adventure. Go over and say hello!!!

I can’t believe it’s Friday already! Anyone else have a busy week?

1. This entire week I’ve been fighting a case of the sleepy. Have you ever had a week like that? Basically there isn’t enough coffee or tea in the world to wake me up. I’ve been trying to go to bed early and I even skipped a few early morning workout classes this week to snag an extra hour of sleep, but doesn’t seem to help. I’m hoping this weekend I can really get rid of it.

This week was exhausting!

2. William turned 3 months this week! I swear, didn’t I just birth him? Yes? But he’s adorable right now. He actually properly laughed this week and I’m noticing some of the same little things Elizabeth did at this age, like chewing on his hands, starting to grab at things. He’s also settled right in to a great schedule and I think I’ve figured out his little quirks and preferences (at least his preferences for now).

3. It was finally a great cooking week around here. It all started with a good old fashioned Menu Monday post with our weekly menu. This coming Monday is another round up of all the best Pinterest recipes you need to try, so stay tuned, but our favorite winner? These black bean and sweet potato tacos!!

4. This week we FINALLY had lower humidity and “cooler” weather. It was still in the upper 80s, but a little breeze and lower humidity makes all the difference. So we spent several days playing outside. You saw on IG all our water bead fun (SO addicting!). And earlier in the week we sat in the backyard watching clouds and playing with bubbles.

Playing outside

5. We only have 1 week left of “summer vacation”. Elizabeth starts school again in one week (yay!), our Bible study starts up again in a week, and our usual routine is coming back. I’m really excited for that! It was nice having a laid back summer schedule to help ease us all into having 2 kids, but bring on the routine! Are you still in Summer Mode? Or have you gotten back to the usual routine?

What was your highlight from the week? Can’t wait to hear about it!

    Third grade starts on Monday. Preschool starts on the 7th. And I, my friend, am in summer mode, refusing to let go! I have been super tired this week too but I think it has more to do with that time of the month (hahah TMI) than anything else! Yay for lower humidity, I adored it! Happiest weekend!

  2. Meg Taylor says:

    YES to the great temperatures this week! I stepped outside yesterday and was so confused when my phone still said 85. You could have told me it was in the 70s, and I would have believed it! No humidity is amazing. Those tacos also look soooo good!! Have a great weekend!

    So many happy things in one post!! Glad you’re finding your routine with two and that you’re sneaking in rest when you can. Hope you get lots of R&R this weekend. Your sweet potato tacos sound amazing!

  4. Lee says:

    Thank you so much for featuring my blog this week! Those tacos look delicious, I will definitely be adding that to my need-to-try list of recipes! I will eat almost anything with sweet potatoes and blackbeans! Have a great weekend!

    I can’t believe William is 3 months already!! He and Elizabeth are so cute! I love her bubble gun 🙂 Hope you guys have a great weekend! (And that you get some sleep!)

    We had a few days of lighter humidity this week too, and it was glorious to walk outside and not suffocate! I’m so ready for fall! Can’t wait to see your post on Monday. Your food instas have been gorgeous!
