Friday Things

TGIF!! Are you all ready for the weekend?  I know we sure are.  I' off to a slow start around here this morning but I've finally got my act together.

Here are some things that have been going on this week:

I broke out my swing sweater from last year and it still fits over the bump!! I am so excited I think I might have to pick up another one come October 1 since they'll work great post baby too.  I was hesitant to buy one of these sweaters last year but they totally live up to their hype. If you don't have one yet I highly suggest it.  Pregnant or not!

Avocado Mozzarella Toast 
 I have been on a huge fresh mozzarella kick for the last month or so. I just cannot get enough. I decided on a whim last week to add it to my beloved avocado toast. It was so good!
Wheat bread or bread of choice
2 slices Fresh mozzarella
1/2-1 Avocado
Lemon juice, Salt, and Pepper to taste
Olive Oil

Toast bread- with or without mozzarella. (I use a toaster oven and usually add my mozzarella to the toast half way through toasting so it melts a little.) Cut Avocado in half, remove pit, and scoop into bowl. (I usually use half an avocado).  Mash avocado with lemon juice, salt, and pepper to taste. Keep slightly chunky.

Place a slice of mozzarella on each piece of toast (if you didn't melt it), Spread avocado mash over mozzarella, drizzle with olive oil and enjoy!

I am loving this red from Essie's new fall color collection. I always paint my own nails so I usually treat myself to one new color a month since it's cheaper than a manicure.  I'm already dreaming up which color I want next from the fall collection.  I'm thinking either Style Cartel or Take it Outside.

Toddler Problems

Miller's beloved Giraffe that we call Raff needed a trip through the washing machine badly. He was on the verge of getting a stench.  I had tried to sneak him away from Miller and it just didn't work so I convinced him to put him in the washer as a game. Then the tears ensued when I wouldn't let him have it back.  He spent about 10 minutes crying and banging on the basement door before I finally convinced him to have a snack and watch some Mickey.  Who knew having to part with your favorite stuffed animal for an hour was so traumatizing?!

Playroom Progress
Since my nesting and urge to clean and organize ALL THE THINGS is out of control I have decided to tackle our playroom next. I will be back next week to share more pictures and my plans for the room.  

And one more because I couldn't resist...

Black Widow
This song. I'm obsessed. I wanted to hate it but I can't. It's too damn catchy.  I can't stop listening to it.
(feel free to judge how dusty my car is- it needs to be cleaned-badly)

Hope you all have a great weekend!
