5 on Friday

I know every week I say TGIF, but this week I am extra thankful Friday is here. I've been having a rough week and yesterday was even rougher. I forgot my purse and keys to work, nobody there to open the door, had to go back home, was running 30 minutes late as a result and then dropped an entire bottle of nursery water on my pants. It was one of those days where I just wanted to crawl back into bed, pull the covers over my head and not wake up until Friday. And maybe have a drink with a cute straw under that blanket too. Here's to Friday!

Linking up again with Darci, April, Christina, Natasha for "5 on Friday!"

//one// "You can't draw water from an empty well. Take care of yourself and you'll be a better parent." I saw this on The EveryGirl feature 'Lessons in Motherhood' yesterday. As a mom, I think you put everyone else's needs before your own and you run out of time to take care of yourself. You can only work like that for so long. I think it's time for a re-boot for this girl so I can be a better mama, fiance and person.I'm starting this off by hitting up the Luke Bryan concert tonight. Yeehaw!

//two//  I forgot how nice it was to have fun nails. Before I had Autumn, I was briefly selling Jamberry Nails. They're nail wraps applied with heat in super fun colors and patterns. Once she came, mommy-hood took over and I just didn't have time to do my nails. Well a couple weeks ago, I was asked to have a table at a fashion show for the New Mexico Autism Society this Saturday. I put some fun black and white chevron nails onto my toes and will be doing my nails in a cool gray color. So fun!
//three// I really want some nerd glasses. Yup, those thick framed, over-sized, take up your whole face glasses. They're glorious. I will not be talked out of them a second time. Nope.
//four// I made the best cupcakes for a going-away at work today (no, not mine sadly). They are devils food cake with a molten ganache center, chocolate buttercream with roasted hazelnuts on top. Mmm, mmm, mmm. The girl who is leaving is prego and this was her prego request. How I miss those prego craving filled days!
//five// This face makes the worst day immediately slip away. If I could just hold, kiss and squeeze her all day I would. She is the light of my everyday.
