Five on Friday

Today I'm linking up with Darci at The Good Life blog for her 5 on Friday series.  Basically you just blog about 5 things - any five things you want.

Here we go:

Kettle corn.  Its one of my favorite treats.  The perfect combo of sweet, salty and crunchy.  Today they were having a street art festival at Redmond Town Center where we have Stroller Strides.  There was a street of food trucks that just happened to be on my way back to the car and I had to stop and get a bag of freshly made kettle corn.  Mmm.

As part of my Body Back class, I have to journal my food.  Which means that I have to write down the kettle corn that I have eaten and/or will eat.  I have to say that knowing I have to write things down has prevented me from eating the whole bag in one sitting.

I am in love with my new Coach purse.  We stopped at the outlet mall in Lincoln City, Oregon on our way back from the coast and everything in the store was 50% off the already reduced prices.  Plus in Oregon there is no sales tax so its actually like getting 59.5% off (or at least that's how I explained it to my husband).  So I got this purse (originally $378) and matching wallet (orginally $138) for $200.  Its big enough to hold my stuff plus all the baby stuff (diaper change kit, toys, snacks) and the fabric is kind of like a vinyl so things can easily be wiped off.  I've discovered that is important since Sawyer puked all over my current purse this weekend.

I got Sawyer a hair cut before the 4th.  I hate paying $25 for a haircut for him but he was in need and I didn't have the time to do it myself.  The first part of the cut was great.  I told her I wanted to shorten up everything but leave the top a little longer since I love his curls.  She was doing so well and then she kept cutting and cutting and cutting off the top.  He still looks cute (I mean really, how could he not) but I'm sad he lost his little signature 'do.  Oh well, at the rate his hair grows, it will be back in no time.  And I know what clipper settings she used so I can probably do it myself now.

I think we've found a house sitter and potential baby sitter!  It seems all our good house sitters move away - usually because they are college kids who go off to school or graduate and find jobs elsewhere.  But the daughter of a friend of mine is getting married soon and they are living with the parents right now so would welcome an opportunity to live on their own.  They are looking for a place but want to be in Redmond so they will be close.  And they love dogs.  And kids.  So hopefully we can utilize them until they have a kid of their own.  Andrew and I went on a date night in Oregon and decided we needed to do date nights more often since we couldn't remember the last time we had dinner without Sawyer.

Happy Friday friends!  Hope you all have a great weekend!
