Five on Friday

One. Coaching with Emily Ley 
Dive in head first, right?? That's what I am about to do and I am ecstatic about it. I know I've been teasing you all for what seems like forever about the business I'm opening and it's inching closer and closer and I couldn't be happier for what's to come. I'll give you two hints...my business is going to be online and it's going to be tailored to the little ones. That's all you get...for now at least! But, just the other day, I saw a blog post from the talented Emily Ley and jumped for joy when I saw what she was offering...an online webinar for shop coaching. I signed up immediately and I cannot wait to "attend". My friend Leslie raves about what Emily did for her photography business and I am hoping to learn some of her tips and tricks, as well. More to come I assure you.
Two. Did Someone Say Crock Pot? 
Add this to the list of another successful, add-it-to-the-roundup of crockpot dinners for our family. I tried out Chef in Training's Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan last week and it was amazing...easy to assemble, and then toss it in, and then 4-6 hours later, you have a winner! Try it, you just might like this version more than the traditional way.
Three. And Baby Makes Three
This weekend, all the girls (AKA beeshes) are going to be in town celebrating this pretty lady, and her little nugget baking away. Hurt looks ADORABLE and we are so happy to shower her with goodies for the peanut she is expecting in May. We have replaced crazy bachelorette festivities in exchange for baby showers and it makes me so happy to see my friends become mamas...such fun fun times ahead!!
Four. Moms on Call Toddler Version
Got a toddler?? You need this book...trust me! Toddlers are crazy little things, let me tell you, and we're just now getting to the "good stuff". We needed a refresher course in sleep training, an easy-to-follow system for misbehaving, details on how to overcome tantrums, and hoards of other topics and this has been a great read for February. Moms on Call to the rescue yet again!!!
Five. Oscar Time!!
I'm a sucker for some celeb-stalking and award season has to be one of my favorite things ever. And of course the Academy Awards is the biggest and best and we tune in each year to see who takes home the coveted Oscar. My predictions include Jared Leto for Best Supporting Actor and Matthew McConaughey for Best Actor for Dallas Buyer's Club, Cate Blanchett for Best Actress, Jennifer Lawrence for Best Supporting Actress, and Twelve Years a Slave for Best Picture. And the fact that Ellen is hosting this year is icing on my cake!!
As always, you know what to do for today's link up festivities...join Darci, Christina, April, and I and share 5 goodies of your very own! Happy Friday and cheers to a great weekend friends.

  8. I am definitely adding the chicken parm to our favorites! I love Italian and I love the crock pot. :)

    We used MOC when Cam was an infant, but you're right - it's time for the toddler version. We are experiencing some serious sh*t in our neck of the woods, and we need a little help!!!!

    Happy Weekend!
