Five on Friday

Happy Friday friends!

We have made it to the end of the week!


This weekend kicks off round one of birthday celebrations for #babybigtruck. Sunday my mom, #babybigtruck, and I are having a girls day and going to NYC to go to American Girl Doll Store for lunch. I was kicking around the idea of getting her a like me doll but I think I may hold off on that this trip. We will be bringing her Bitty Baby with us to join the festivities so maybe she will get a new outfit?


This morning I was in the shower and I was shaving and all of a sudden I hear a knock on the shower door. I said hello and I hear “Mama, poo poo!” Clearly #babybigtruck found her way out of her bed and into the bathroom. I told her she was beat until I got out of the shower so she decided she would set up camp in front of the bath tub and play with her bath toys until I got out of the shower. Once I got out I was drying off and she had a fit that I was using “her” towel so she took it from me and said “No no mama no no.” This kid.


Yesterday we went to a local diner for dinner. As we were getting ready to go #babybigtruck decided she wanted her sunglasses. I was waiting for a to go container for the cookie that came with #babybigtrucks dinner and I was waiting for the bill so I told Mike to take her out and let her have her glasses. By the time I got in the truck with them she was having a fit because she was not with me. She has been quite the mamas girl lately always having to be with me.


Mike has been working the midnight to 8am shift for the past two weeks. While we are both so grateful that he is working and working regularly we are both ready for him to have a better shift.


At work to pass the time I typically will catch up on TV shows and movies. I have recently gotten into a funk where I do not want to be watching stuff all day everyday so I decided to start reading again. I started Riding Lessons by Sara Gruen and so far it’s really good. Apparently she also wrote Water for Elephants which I have not read but I do have it at home. Maybe I will read that next.

  Hugs, Nikki

    NYC will be so fun! I’ve heard great things about the American Girl Store there! 🙂 I hope Mike’s shift changes soon. Night time hours have to be rough!

    I really need to start reading again! Maybe once I’m done with school I can go back to reading just for fun.

      I go back and forth with reading. I just realized the other day that I have not read in a while so I am trying to read more now again. Never ending cycle.
