Friday 5 vol. 8

1) Biggby.

It's funny that I live in Lansing - the city where Biggby Coffee was founded - but I only really get it when I go out of town (it's probably a good thing that there is not a Biggby anywhere near my drive to work, otherwise I would not be making that statement).  So naturally, I was very excited to find out that I had to make a trip to our corporate office this week.  There is a Biggby right around the corner and I always stop there on my way in.  A super iced fluffy clouds always hits the spot! (I don't know what happened to that picture - it's not that distorted on my phone...)

2) Nail Growth.
Wednesday marked 2 weeks of the jamicure.  It was time to remove them - they were starting to peel up around the edges - but how great did they still look?  The best part?  All that nail growth on the bottom.  2 weeks without biting my nails may be a record.  Miles' daycare provider invited me to a Jamberry party tonight, so I'm excited to go and get some more product (tell me again why I'm not selling this stuff yet?)

3) The baby carrier.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my Infantino Support carrier (it's actually a discontinued model, the updated version is called the Union).  It's very similar to the Ergo in design at about 1/3 the price.  I don't get to use it as much as I'd like because Miles is not a fan of being carried/worn for any period of time.  He's like his daddy with a really high body temp and he just gets too hot.  But it's still perfect for when I really need to get something done around the house and don't want to leave him alone.  Yesterday that meant collecting all the trash from around the house to take out.  Tomorrow it will mean actually cleaning the house to get it ready for visitors (yay!).  I'm hoping that I can combine cleaning with nap time, since he's usually really good at falling asleep while I'm wearing him.  

4) Old Navy $1 Flops.
One of the best days of the year!  While technically it's tomorrow, it's worth putting in this week's 5 since I've been looking forward to it all week.  My plan is to be there when the store opens so I can actually take advantage.  Last year I got there too late and all that was left in my size was brown (which I already had).  This year Old Navy is also putting Flip Flop vending machines around New York and LA and if you tweet with the hashtag #flipflophooray, you can get a free pair out of them.  Why oh why don't I live in New York or LA?  

5) Hodor.


Stay hodor Chelish, hodors friends.


  1. I live in Canada so I've never heard of Biggby Coffee but I love my iced java during the summer months!

    I couldn't have survived the first few years of motherhood without my baby carrier! Yay for finding one that works!


    Wishing you a lovely weekend.

  2. LOVE our carrier too. We didn't use it as much as we should/could have but it certainly comes in handy when we need to vacuum!
    happy $1 flip flop shopping tomorrow (I went there today and got a bunch of stuff - they had tanks for $2, shorts for $14 etc)
    happy shopping

  3. DANG! Those nails held up and still look great! Your son..oh my gosh. TOO RIDICULOUSLY CUTE! And I've never heard of Biggby- they're definitely not out here in CA :[ #MissingOut
