Five On Friday! Fall Fall Fall!

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. :)

HAPPY HAPPY First Day of Fall! The high here today in Charlotte is .... well, 87 degrees and sunny. No doubt the girls and I will be playing outside in the sun and NOT snuggled up in my plaid blanket scarf (please oh please let those still be in style this season because I love mine).

(I still wear Uggs too and don't you dare tell me they're out)

One of my most requested blog posts is about dressing the girls. I'd say my style for them is 10% stylish and 90% practical, meaning that it's clothing that 1) is comfortable, 2) is easily washable, 3) was passed down for free to us, or 4) was purchased at a church consignment sale or resale shop.

The most compliments are on days when I dress them in MATCHING clothes! So cute. It also makes dressing them in the mornings so much easier.

Okay, so when I do purchase new clothes for them, my secret supply source for matching clothes is Zulily and SPECIFICALLY the Nanette brand. These clothes are cute and cotton-soft. Plus, with the drop-down menu for sizing, I can easily grab one in 2T and one in 4T (I like sizing up a little bit with this brand, plus there's a chance the clothes might fit again next fall).

Nanette just happens to be on sale now on Zulily and here are 4 little outfits that I picked out as my favorites!

I don't know if you saw my Snapchat yesterday with Charlotte cruising around on the Ybike, but WOW! She was so mobile (she's not walking yet so this is HUGE) and so independent and so PROUD. We gave this bike to Camille two Christmases ago, and she never really took to it, so it's been just sort of collecting dust in our garage. I decided on a whim to pull it out yesterday evening for Charrie and I had tears in my eyes because of how great it was for her! Ian was out of town but I sent him a long video and he was in shock and so, so proud!

The pediatrician said we will revisit her not walking yet at her 18 month checkup which is in about 3 weeks, so I'm really feeling a ton of pressure to do everything I can to reach this milestone before we have to seek third party therapy. 

Last Friday at the Nature Museum, I was talking to the other moms about our Aldi favorites (OMG IF THAT WASN'T THE MOST ADULTISH SENTENCE EVER). Ahem. Anyway!

We were saying that the one thing we didn't buy from Aldi was their beer because our hubbies drink the name brand stuff.

Well. Lo and behold. I was at Aldi on Monday and saw "Hop Lift" which is a not-so-subtle nod at one of Ian's favorite beers, Hop Drop & Roll. This one isn't as strong (6.2% vs 7.2%, in case you're curious), so that's good. I picked up a 4-pack for $6.99 and Ian was super impressed. He said he's been paying $12.99 for his 4-pack of Hop Drop.

Aldi IPAs for the win! This weekend we plan to do a blind taste taste and pick our favorite.

Happy Friday, you guys! I've got 2 minutes before Camille's clock turns green and I still need to jump in the shower REALLY fast and wash this charcoal mask off my face! Looking forward to a great weekend with a special birthday party to attend on Saturday and then a fun little adventure planned for Sunday with Camille!

XOXO and would love to hear from any moms with late walkers :) 


That's it for today! Hope you have a lovely weekend -- thanks for linking up with us below!
