Five on Friday - May 6, 2016

What a fun week this has been!  Monday night I hosted a gender reveal party ~ if you missed the recap, check it out HERE.  The rest of the week was full of sports.  The Blues hockey team played on Tuesday and Thursday and I went to the Cardinals baseball game on Wednesday.  Fun week!  What fun things did you do this week?  Ready for the weekend?!?

Before we head into this Mother's Day weekend, here's my five for this week ~

1.  Font Candy App
My niece has been using the most adorable app for my great-nephew's monthly photos.  It's called Font Candy.  It has a ton of editing options like the font, font color, size, placement.  You can just tweak away until it's just right.  For all you moms out there, this is a fantastic way to capture what's happening in the life of your child pretty easily.  Here's a couple examples of some pics she created.  And this is a great opportunity for me to show off my very adorable great-nephew, Hunter!  He just makes me swoon!

2.  Kidzikoo Coozie
Thinking of my little niece and nephews, have you guys seen these super cute little insulators that works on bottles, sippy cups and water bottles?  Oh my goodness ~ I can think of SOOOOO many reasons to have these around if you have kiddos.  They stretch to fit most 8-12 ounce baby bottles and sippy cups.  They also fits 12 ounce Klean Kanteens, 12 ounce soda/juice cans and water bottles up to 16.9 ounces.  Wouldn't it be nice to quickly be able to identify your kids drink cup when they are on a playdate?  Or have something on those sippy cups to absorb the condensation and eliminate the water rings left on your furniture?!?  They come in several adorable patterns.  Get yours before the hot weather is here!  Click HERE to purchase.  Look around after you get to Amazon to see all the patterns.

3.  My Man Yadi
It's no secret that I L-O-V-E the St. Louis Cardinals.  Our catcher, Yadi Molina, did the coolest thing this week.  A pitch was thrown inside and as Yadi jumped back ~ well, see for yourself....

Is he not just the coolest catcher EVER!?!  Love him!  

4.  Wine Chiller Stick
Still looking for something to give your mom for Mother's Day?  Check out this baby!  It's less than $10 at Amazon and ships for free if you have Prime.  This would make a great item to pair with a bottle for wine for a wedding present or as a hostess gift.  The 3-in-1 chiller stick serves as a chiller, pourer and aerator.  What more could you ask for?!?  You just have to place the chiller rod in the freezer for a minimum of 2 hours and you are ready to go.  How cool is that! (Pun intended.)  Click HERE to purchase or see more about it.

5.  So true....

Now let's get ready for the weekend!  I hope everyone has a wonderful Mother's Day.  Eric and I are headed to our nephew's kindergartner graduation tomorrow.  Big day for him and I'm so grateful we get to be there to experience it.  See you later!

  1. Those image with the text are too cute! And I keep seeing the wine chiller but haven't heard anyone who actually tried it! Seems like a great idea for the summer :)

  2. What a cool gadget!! Have a great mother's day :)

  3. The Font Candy app looks cool, I'm always interested in new photo editing apps I've never heard of. I'm just not a huge fan of the logo watermark on a lot of the apps.

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend my friend! :)

  4. Oooo! Fun app!

  5. Lol so true about the Capri Sun! I just discovered Font Candy and love it!

  6. Great Five on Friday! I loved the picture at the end... It made me literally laugh out loud. Looks like you're having a great week!

  7. Love that app! I don't think my teen boy would appreciate me taking pics like that, however. I'm a creepy mom who still thinks my kid is an absolute doll at age 17. Ha ha. This was a good post! I enjoy your sense of humor. :)
