High-5 for Friday

Hey there!

Hi, friends!

We had quite the nice Friday yesterday. I ended up documenting quite a bit of it for Instagram Stories, so I wanted to share the details over here on the blog. I’m curious: Do you follow me on Instagram Stories or just the blog? Let me know in the comment section because it’ll help me with content creation. I’m not sure if I’m repeating myself or if it’s all new to you? Or maybe you don’t mind seeing stories and what’s on the blog?

Our morning started bright and early with art projects. Quinn woke up and immediately asked me if he could paint and then asked me if I could get him a box. He was awake for like 3 minutes before he started asking for supplies. He definitely had something in mind!

Quinn ended up building a house with stairs (on the back)!

It was Pajama Day at school, and Quinn didn’t want to miss it. I had some loose ends to tie up, so he went to school as Buzz Lightyear for a few hours. He was psyched!

Just a few hours later, I picked him up from school. We headed to Goldfish for swim lessons and then we hit the library for new books and a little computer time. Quinn learned how to use a mouse!

We checked out a couple of new experiment books as well as a T-Rex book for Quinn. I got The Metabolism Reset Diet and Loving What Is, which were both books I heard about on podcasts recently.

After the library, we headed home and ate lunch. After lunch, I cleaned up the house while Quinn played with Kinetic Sand, which is definitely one of his favorite toys ever. If I need him occupied for a little bit, this is a go-to!

Mal skipped the gym and ended up coming home early, so we all headed out for happy hour and dinner at Rivershed. High-5 for Friday! FYI: My camo top is actually from Amazon and cost just $21! It comes in other fun color combos too.

At Rivershed, we started with drinks. I went for a margarita!

Quinn wore his pajamas and new St. Patrick’s Day had from Goldfish to dinner! 🙂

We ordered some wings and played Go Fish, which is still a hot game in our house. We play just about everyday! 🙂

For my entree, I went with the salmon burger with crispy Brussels sprouts, which were incredible. I wonder if I can make them like this in my air fryer at home? I definitely want to try!

We’re off to the gym followed by a baby shower + a fun date night with friends tonight. Busy Saturday ahead!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!



  1. I prefer reading your blog primarily. I do follow you on Instagram, but I have been trying to limit my social media lately so I don’t usually watch anyone’s stories 🙂

  2. I follow primarily on the blog. I can read the posts when I have a bit of down time between tasks and can read faster than watching Stories. So please continue to share your content on the blog!

  3. I just follow the blog. Curious- how are you able to just take him to school for a few hours and pick him up when you want? Does it not have a start and end time? Or is school daycare? I’ve always been confused about that. If it’s a daycare they probably have to have a certain number of staff there, so that might make it hard for them? I don’t know. Obviously you are doing what’s right for you guys 🙂

    1. The hours are really flexible, which is nice. We pay for full-time daycare, so Quinn can pretty much come and go when he likes. The staff is accounted for in our tuition.

  4. We love doing brussels in our air fryer – typically finish them off with chopped almonds, a little goat cheese and a tiny squeeze of honey 🙂

  5. I read the blog daily and enjoy seeing pics on Instagram, but I don’t typically watch Insta-stories. They are too long and as a few others said, I’m trying to cut down on social media time.

  6. Looks like a great Friday! I used to follow you on Instragram, but I unfollowed a month or two ago. It seemed like a lot of your stories & posts were promoting your businesses- which I don’t fault you for of course, it’s just not what I follow you & other people for. I enjoy day in the life & daily eats posts. So now I just read the blog posts that fit my interests.

    1. Thanks for the feedback! I didn’t realize I was sharing so much business stuff. I’ll be sure to keep that in mind for my IG followers.
