five on friday

by Ally- Life as I know it, 9:20 AM
1. Oliver turned 5 months last week and everyday I look at him and can't believe he's almost half a year old. It feels like I was pregnant ages ago though. I have to look at pictures to even remember that I was! I haven't had a chance to take a 5 month picture yet because no onesies fit him anymore! We're loving this age. He is such a happy, smiley baby. If only he slept better at night! 

2. I made him some green beans last week and he did not like them at all. I'm not giving up though and am going to try to see if I can get them a little more mushy. Look at that face, he hated them!

3. I have got to find an Easter dress! Loft has become my go to for clothes lately and I'm really loving all their new dresses for Spring.

I want those shoes too!

These are all $25 off!

4. I'm really trying to eat more kale. I used to eat it all the time but then I got pregnant and you know how that goes. Problem is I never know what to do with it. I can't wait to try out a few of these Kale Bowls from Mind Body Green. The Southwestern Kale Power Salad looks so good.

As does the Warm Beet Kale Bowl. I love beets as I've gotten older. I remember getting so mad on Thanksgiving when I was younger and I thought I had cranberry on my plate and it was nasty beets! But now I love them!

This one would have been great yesterday for St. Patrick's Day.

5. My biggest goal for 2016 is to update my house. I haven't changed the decor since we moved in almost 4 years ago. And trust me, it needs it. I hit up HomeGoods last week and a bought a few new things.

Sorry these are such bad quality but my house has so much daytime light that unless I brighten them, they come out so dark. New curtains in the breakfast nook and in the living room. Also new pictures on either side of the window. I still need to get something to put on the wall over our couch and a new lamp. Oliver had too much fun being carried around the store. 

No big plans this weekend! I'm hosting a Beautycounter party tonight so if you're interested in learning more about the company and the products send me an email (! I've been using their makeup for a year now and am obsessed! Other than that, hanging out with my little family!
