Five On Friday!

It's time for another edition of Five on Friday and I do hope you'll join along!

Remember, all you have to do is post about five things on your mind, add our logo (found at the bottom of this post), and join the party using the linky tools below. Easy, and a great way to find new blogs and be found. :)

This week started baby music classes for our sweet little Charlotte! We are doing more classes at Music Together and our Charchie-girl was SO excited and happy in class. It was seriously adorable. These classes are not cheap, and lawd knows I didn't really need another item on our already-busy agenda, BUT the feeling I got Monday seeing her do her thing was priceless. Camille was in pre-school so it was just great one-on-one time with my littlest girl. My friend Sarah (whose daughter is also in the class) snapped this picture of me with the girls under the parachute and I snagged it from her Snapchat. :)

Okay, so I have a little tip to pass along to anyone who is as CHEAP/FRUGAL/STINGY as me.

Earlier this season I fell positively in lovvvvve with this Fireside Night candle that I got from Aldi. It was $6.99 and a great dupe for the Voluspa tin candles which I also love.

But then it burned all the way down. And I was sad.

WELL. I had the best idea today. 

I took a cheese knife and cut out the leftover wax, and I added it to my wax scent warmer! Just stuck the chips right in. And my house smelled like that lovely candle all over again! I got my warmer also from Aldi for $4, and I've decided that it's the perfect thing to have around the house to get the extra mile from your favorite candles. 

(If you aren't close to an Aldi, I also love the look of this sea urchin one from Amazon)

One of my sweet blog readers alerted me to this amazing product! She saw last week's photo of me feeding Charlotte from a pouch via spoon and shot me a quick email. She said that they have been so awesome in her family ... I immediately added them to my Amazon cart! They work with food pouches and make it so that the child has to suck on it to get the contents out. No more accidental banana-prune volcano when your kid grasps the pouch a little too forcefully!

Yesterday I spent $91 at Aldi and got sooooo much. And yes, I stood on our kitchen island barstool to photograph it all.

Here are some of the highlights:

+ For $2.99, this hyacinth in a bulb forcer vase. It smells heavenly in our kitchen!

+ For $0.79/each, ORGANIC baby food pouches. Yep, the ones that are $1-1.50 in stores. This really adds up!

+ For $3.99, the prosciutto panini sticks which are absolutely delicious! They made for a great low-carb snack yesterday afternoon. 

Lastly, just some shots of my girls because they have been precious this week and just a joy.

Next week is .... HOME WEEK!

Come on back on Monday and we'll spend all week talking about fun house-related topics -- buying, selling, renovating, decorating on a budget!

TGIF y'all, and hope you will join in on Five on Friday this week! Cheers to the weekend!
