Five on Friday

TGIF! Let's get started!

It is becoming painfully sad to me that I have exactly two more weekends before I go back to work. I will be working weekends only and staying home with L during the week. It is coming on fast. Speaking of L, I asked my fellow mamas on Instagram how they get their kids to nap during the day and whether people sleep trained their children. It has been 3 days of my version of a schedule and he is doing well! I feel like I am finally making some progress. But still sleep deprived...don't get it twisted. Just sleep deprived and able to make dinner (sometimes).

I forgot I had a brunch to go to and needed to bring a food and ended up making the world's easiest apple pie bites with what I had on hand. I feel like at a brunch you can get away with sweet dessert type things and call it breakfast. I am all for that!

Anyway, all I did for the Apple Pie Bites are as follows: Take crescent rolls, place a scoop of the apple pie filling in each and roll it up. Roll the crescent roll in cinnamon and sugar and bake according to package!

L rocked his first road trip where we went to celebrate my parent's birthdays. I was worried he would melt down since the dinner coincided with his witching hour(s), but he didn't melt down until the end! Thank God for small favors! Also, he slept through his first pumpkin patch experience but it was cute all the same!
Speaking of baby, I realized I never talked about the beautiful baby shower my sister threw for me. I was surrounded by amazing friends and family and it was a perfect shower. The cake and decor were PERFECT. Everyone also took home some of my mom's amazing homemade jam...
My mom and aunt helped my plant some coleus at my front door. That with a new welcome mat and some mums and I am happy with some fall spirit! My mom had the brilliant idea of adding some flowers to the wreath to give it some color and depth and I am in love! I have fake pumpkins only since in the Southwest desert we have Javalina. They will come and eat your real pumpkins. This is however the first year where a Javalina has actually come to my front porch to see if my fake pumpkin was real. :-/ I think next year I will add some more pumpkins and a bale of hay and really go for it!
