Five on Friday {7.19.13}

Somehow another week has flown by without me blogging any of the things I wanted to...womp, womp! Next week is going to be my week though...I can feel it! :)) At the very least, I can always throw together a post for Five on Friday, so here we go!

1. {WATER SLIDE} Manny had some birthday money he was supposed to use to pick out something, and we found this awesome thing! It is called the Mega Tidal Wave Water Slide and you can get it at Toys R Us for $39.99. It is a HUGE hit and provides hours of entertainment. Not gonna lie - I'm pretty close to taking a spin down it. I love that it has a good sized pool at the bottom too for me to lounge in Maeva to play in. 

2. {PINK LIPSTICK} I'm really picky about lipsticks. Like I find a shade and wear it for a decade. (Hello, Toffee by Mary Kay. Thank you for carrying me through my teens.) I've been on the search for a while for a good pink lipstick, and think it's safe to say my search has ended now that I've found MAC's Girl About Town Lipglass. It's a bright (but not too bright when applied correctly) and fun pink, and it has staying power.

3. {SANDALS} I picked up these black and gold bow sandals yesterday when I was returning something at JcPenney. They were on sale for $4.99, and they were having an additional 10% off, so I got them for around $4.75 with tax. Such a steal! (FYI they are not with the shoes, but in the accessory section where they have some shoes hanging - if that makes sense? I can't find them on their website unfortunately.)

4. {MY LITTLE CLIMBER} Maeva has become quite the climber. Last Saturday we went to storytime at a local bookstore with my friend Katie and her daughters. Of course I knew MB wouldn't be interested in listening, but I didn't anticipate that every time I turned around she would scale the bookshelf within seconds. She is lightning fast!! I'm scared for when she starts walking. :)

5. {CONFETTI BACKDROP} I'../../2013/07/diy-party-backdrop-tutorial.html" target="_blank">DIY Party Backdrop Tutorial has been receiving some love lately!  Earlier this week BlogHer contacted me about syndicating it, and then babble.com also contacted me about featuring it in their Top 10 Confetti Crafts. And yesterday the whole party was featured on Kara's Party Ideas. I'm not saying that to be "braggy", and I hope it doesn't come across that way. It's just fun when you put work into a project and it gets recognized by others, because often times after I make/do something I start questioning myself or if it's really cute, or if I'm the only one who thinks so. Ha! :) So this was just a nice little treat to hear some positive feedback on it. 

Have a great weekend friends! :)
