. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Five on Friday

April 4, 2013

Five on Friday

sweater: kohls    jeans: H&M maternity  shoes: target

1.  The back of this sweater is way more exciting than the front.  So while I am not a fan of the backside pictures, I feel like I had no choice. 
2.  I usually stick to pretty easy recipes, especially when it comes to desserts.  Which is why I loved this one because it starts with a brownie mix and ends with cookie dough that I can eat.  Which beat out the recipe I wanted to make last week.  
Cookie Dough Brownie Bites
3.  While this recipe is probably still easy to most, to me it is more work then the majority of recipes I make, but I'm sure it's worth it!  I am participating in Jess' Easter recipe swap and this is the recipe I received from Jasmine.  I failed at making it this week but plan on trying it this weekend! 
Chocolate Guinness Cake
4.  The other day my sister texted me a picture of my cute niece with a high pony tail and said that my three year old nephew said "She looks like a pine cone or a bad guy.  Either way it's not good." 

Photo: Love, love, love these two. And (most of the time) they seem to love each other too : )
I don't think he could be any cuter or funnier.  I am missing him a lot!

5. I want to make one of these lamps for our baby room.  I know there are many other things I should be organizing and cleaning at my house, but all I want to do it make things for her room!  

(floral lamp    polka dot lamp)


Happy Friday! Hope you have a great weekend!

Love the color combo in that outfit! If you're taking votes, I vote for the polka dot lampshade. But, I'm a sucker for polka dots. :)

Caroline said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Those brownies.... wow. And I love the fun little surprise of the back of your cardigan!

Nicole @ Haute Runner said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

That sweater is all kinds of amazing! I actually saw a sweater like that the other day but it was in the wrong colours so I didn't get it.

I think the back view looks good! Nothing to worry about! :)

All these yummy treats. I can't look or else I just want to reach through my computer screen and eat them up.

I like the polka dot lamp shade. Looks easy enough. The rose one looks like Audrey's birthday cake so I kinda want to eat it! I'm obsessed with polka dots, chevron and stripes right now.

Pisceanchick said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Those cookies look yummy! The rose lamp looks quite doable. Would you use ribbons for the roses?
