The Highlights

We had a pretty low key week at our house.  Normal routines, normal activities and nothing too exciting.  Unless you consider a teething baby waking up randomly all throughout the night crying and needing to be rocked back to sleep exciting :)  Thankfully 4 molars have popped through so I'm hoping for more restful sleep next week for everyone.

The best parts of my week were:

1. I found a new favorite Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe!  They were tasty and so easy.  I ate them for breakfast several days because oatmeal = health food = approrpiate to eat anytime :)
Tune back in on Monday for the recipe details.

2. We are enjoying getting to know our new neighborhood in Mississippi.  We checked out Whole Foods this week and I deemed Olive the cutest Olive and the Olive Bar :)

3. I ran into Target for a few things and got sucked into the Clearance baby section.  Their shorts were all on clearance for $3 or $4.  Olive has outgrown her summer shorts and it's still HOT here so I picked up a few new pair.  I couldn't resist the polka-dotty shorts and bought the jean ones in two different sizes!

 4. We headed to story time this week and were disappointed because we were the only ones there.  I was hoping to make some new friends and Olive always enjoys the activities.  The librarian was hopeful that more people would be there net week and I hope she's right.  We ended up touring the library, pointing at everything and Olive had lots to babble about.  It was fun to watch her explore the place.

 5. Football season is here!!
We loved watching Ole Miss win yesterday and are hopeful we'll get to see Notre Dame win on Saturday.  Olive made for an adorable cheerleader :)  Let the appetizers, game day food and festivities begin!!  I'm ready for cooler weather and lots of football watching.  I have a whole Pinterest board full of recipes to try out on game days this year.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog.


  1. You are my kind of girl, eating cookies for breakfast!! :) Yum! That was a bummer the story time at the library didn't work out. Maybe once Fall starts up, and folks aren't traveling around for the summer, it will be better? Fingers crossed! Have a great weekend!

  2. Awww, sorry about story time. We live in a small area and there is never a big turnout at anything like that around here. Maybe there will be more people next week!!

    I wish I lived near a Whole Foods. Those places look awesome

    Your cheerleader, just precious!

  3. I've been looking for a good breakfast cookie recipe, so I'm looking forward to yours!

  4. Your validation for eating cookies for breakfast is 100% on point ha. Of course this is coming from the girl who ate chips & dip with her breakfast earlier this week...

  5. Olive bar? my love language!!! Wish we had a whole foods close. As always, little Olive is a cutie!

  6. I love the name olive! Also, I too understand the need to eat cookies at any time of the day!!

  7. I bought those same shorts at Target except the polka dot ones were turquoise, not pink. I so would have bought the pink ones too if they had them. Happy Friday!

  8. Umm, it's okay to eat cookies for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!lol They look yummy! And Olive looks so cute, as always!
