Our Five Ring Circus: Friday Favorites

Friday Favorites

Hello, Friday!  We meet again!  Is it just me or are the weeks going by faster than ever before?!? This entire four kids gig makes time pass by so quickly!

Here are a few things I'm loving this week:


It's March.  Need I say more? Even though Pittsburgh got nailed with snow twice this week and the current temperature is under 0, Spring is near!  It's supposed to be warmer next week.  I'm hoping today was the last of our snow days!

Sometimes you just have to send them outside to protect your sanity! #motherhood


We have a teepee in our living room now.  Why not?  Two years ago, I removed every single toy from my living room, then we found out Liam was on his way.  HA!


B. Teepee from Target (with an awesome light show inside!)


I love mornings with my sweet, quirky girl.  She almost always eats soup for breakfast, and is usually wearing a Frozen dress.  She starts Pre-K in the Fall, and there's no turning back from there.  I know my days with her at home are numbered.  Even though she will love school, I'm going to miss her SO much.

This sweet girl chooses soup for breakfast every morning and is almost always wearing an #Elsa dress. I'm going to miss my days with her when she starts school. ❤ #Liliana #3YearsOld


The Target Dollar Spot.  It sucks me in.  Every. Single. Time.

I have an issue with the @target dollar spot. Every time I go there, it sucks me in. Lots of projects planned with all these goodies! (And Liam needed new socks...hello, clearance!) #targetdoesitagain

I have so much planned for these goodies!


Dylan woke up sick on Wednesday morning.  It had been almost a year since he was last sick.  He stayed home from school, and in usual Dylan manner, he bounced back quickly.  He still has a cold, but was feeling MUCH better within 24 hours. The lucky kid got a snow day yesterday, and is off from school today.  Nothing like a 5 day weekend! I'm sure that's his FAVORITE this week!

Dylan is home from school today with a cold and croup-like cough. First time he has been sick in almost a year and first time missing school this year. Poor guy!


This boy.  He was acting so serious, which is so unlike him.  Then he just started laughing so hard.  I adore him and his incredible spirit!

Liam was acting unusually serious. Then he was all "Yeah, I'm just kidding!" 


And this girl.  She is so beautiful, even while she sleeps. I'm slightly jealous. I don't look anything like that while I sleep!



Spaghetti night is always a hit in our house!  Liam is the number one fan!



I bought a few metal pails from the Target Dollar Spot (See?  Can't resist!), intending to use them for art supplies.  After cleaning up from Lexie's party, I took a few loose flowers and stuck them in the pail until I could figure out how to store them.  Turns out, I actually loved the look! So I returned for pails for St. Patrick's Day, Spring, Easter, and Summer.  It's a really cheap decorating idea, especially paired with fake flowers from Walmart! (6 for $1) WIN!



 Doing brand rep work actually motivates me to get out my camera more for mini photoshoots, and work on my photography skills.  I usually get several near perfect pictures from every shoot! Then again, he is extremely easy to photograph!

 This little dude is teething today, but is still looking so cute in his @lollyludesigns red, white, and blue bow tie! #lollyludesigns #bowties #dapper

I'm linking up with Andrea, Narci, and Erika for Friday Favorites!


  1. Such sweet kids you have!!! Love the pictures & girl, the dollar spot gets me every time, too!

  2. I really hope that was the last bit of snow!!! Those 50's next week are looking pretty amazing!!!

    That tent is awesome!

    $1 Spot always sucks me in....I always get Bre those little notebooks

  3. We got a ton of snow in Central PA too! I cannot wait for Spring!!! Love the little bucket idea for decorating, and your kiddos are adorable. Stopping by from the link-up. :) Have a great weekend!

  4. The spaghetti picture is so cute! Dylan looks very handsome in his black and white picture. We've had quite a few snow days over the last few weeks too. I think Spring is finally on it's way...at least it will be for the next week or so. I am going to have to make some of those flower arrangements now. They are super cute!

  5. Love the $1 bin at target :) I always find something :) Love your finds
    Happy Friday

  7. Your children are so beautiful! And I'm right there with you--hoping for spring soon...like tomorrow!

  8. LOVE your pictures! That dollar spot is NO joke lol. I got one of those cute little egg things too!!

  9. Ok, I would never eat soup for breakfast (for some reason it's just not appealing to me) but to each her own, right? Good food is good food so why not have it for breakfast? :)

  10. I got that same little egg tree from Target! So cute. You found some great things!

    I need to check out that tent. Looks like fun! Have a great weekend! :)

  11. I'm the same way with the Dollar Spot! I has a magnetic effect and I can't seem to pass it up! And, the spaghetti pic has to be the best.picture.ever!!! Love it!

  12. Hi there, I'm stopping by from the linkup too! Your pics are great, and I love that teepee... I've been thinking my little guy (19 months) would have fun with a teepee, so it's good to know target has them :)
    Stay warm! (We are in Ohio and have had similar weather as you)

  13. Your children are absolutely beautiful! The one of Lexie sleeping....yea, I know I don't look like that either, ha.

    Crazy how we live so far apart ( I'm in Arkansas) and we still have the same weather.

    Hope y'all have a great weekend!

  14. The dollar spot and I are frenemies for sure! Loving your little space and so happy to be able to follow along now!

  15. We attempted to remove all toys from our living room 2 years ago as well. It didn't work. LOL! Such sweet babies!

  16. I love living in London, but ohhhhhh how I miss Target. SO MUCH!!! And that spaghetti picture- nailed it!


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
