Five on Friday: Things I'm Loving Today

It's a gorgeous Friday afternoon here in Cowtown, and I'm sitting across from my little guy making play-doh snakes and worms while waiting on the little lady to awaken from her afternoon nap. It just occurred to me to put some Five on Friday on the blog. Here we go!

This week has been Navy Week in DFW, which is designed to bring awareness of the services the Navy provides as protectors of our freedoms here in the US. A large event alongside it is the Air Power Expo, featuring the Blue Angels is going on this weekend in Fort Worth at the Naval Air Station. Admission is free, and besides the Blue Angels, they have the Navy Parachute Team the Leap Frogs as well as other trick performers. It looks awesome!

I took this pic. They've been practicing over on our side of town.

I bought this maxi dress in navy from GAP a few weeks ago. I'd been looking for a maxi dress this season that looks mom-appropriate. I just need it to be cute and provide adequate coverage for chasing preschoolers. This one does the trick. The material is a good weight.

The good: it doesn't need to be hemmed because you can adjust where the drawstring hits on your waist. The meh: even though I followed the care instructions, it shrunk in length, which was fine for my height, but it changed where I place the waistband.

One of my favorite fluff blogs is Day Old News. The author lives in LA and writes about movie premieres, Hollywood parties, but mostly, she catalogs what they wore to these things. Just beautiful clothes, with interesting tidbits of information thrown in. I especially like her award show recaps.

These sunglasses were in Annabelle's Easter basket, and I can't get enough. Crazy 8 has reasonably priced cute children's play clothes. She got a swimsuit from there too!

I have three more classes to go in my Pure Barre studio's 20 in 30 challenge. That's twenty classes in thirty days. I usually get at least that many in each month, but this one's been hard with the holiday plus I got the sniffles from the kids that I've just powered through. I'm ready to kick this sickness!


  1. Cute dress! I bought my first maxi dress a few weeks ago, and now I just can't get the "look" figured out!

    And I adore those baby sunglasses! I need to find some cute ones for little boys!
