I've missed a few Friday Fives, with vacation, sickness, and life.. but I'm back! Happy Friday, and happy Memorial Day weekend to all of you! The weather sounds promising here in Maine and I'm looking forward to relaxing, grilling, and hopefully enjoying some time on the water.
Small town living
I've always loved out little town but lately I've been counting my blessings and appreciating it more and more - Our sweet little schools, our amazing support systems, my tribe of mom friends, our walks to town, walking into our local coffee shop and seeing so many friends and having one person holding baby W so I can order and other friends watching the older boys as they run wild.
Trips to the hair salon
Today was a good day - I got my hair done and better yet, I went all by myself! There's something about freshly cut, styled (and in my case highlighted) hair and moments to yourself that makes you feel so refreshed.
Stitch Fix has seriously saved me! At 5 months postpartum, much of my old wardrobe is still too snug. Stitch Fix has helped me build a new/"for now" wardrobe, and kept me feeling stylish (head to toes) without stepping foot in a store!
My boys have been dying to have a lemonade stand. I decided last weekend we were going to build one together. I was determined that this was going to be my project with them, but I'll confess my husband did have to come in for the finishing touches. I managed to think up the design (I took a shelf out of my son's closet) and found a dolly in our barn, I took all three boys to the hardware store on a Saturday, and got the project started..
With memorial day weekend comes some great holiday sales. If you're in the market for just about anything, now is a good time to shop around. Some of the sales I'm excited about: 20% off Thule and BOB jogging strollers at Magic Beans, great deals at Hanna Andersson, 15% off at Land of Nod, 25% off at Wee-Rascals (with the code memorial25). 20% off sitewide on our favorite swimwear at SwimZip (with the code MemorialDay20), and 25% off sitewide at Zutano (with the code hopintosummer).
Enjoy the weekend- thanks as always for stopping by! Lot's of fun stuff coming up in the next few weeks, so be sure to stop by.
I'm Rebecca, a Maine mom of three energetic young boys and wife of a lobsterman, living in my favorite place, the coast of Maine. You'll find me here talking about my parenting journey, mom style, recipes, running and exercise, travel, stories from our life in Maine and so much more! Most days I'm just figuring it out as I go - Thanks so much for stopping by!
