Five on Friday!

Do you remember those vintage Fisher Price Little People? Yes, there are still "Little People" but let's get real there isn't anything "little" about the new people. They are large and round and supposed to be more safe. Well because we like to live life on the edge we let Eli play with the Fisher Price Little People of yonder years. And he LOVES THEM. They are his most favorite toy. we have billions of toys from the years of 2000's and he only wants my little people from the 80's. The dangerous kind.
That was the best pic I could get cause its hard to get a picture of a moving child, but this is what I'm talking about:


And the above pic is what our Little People look like. Except some of our Little People have the extra touch of chewed heads from some dog during my childhood. Also? I always thought the green guy looked just like my dad.

Does anybody watch the show Shark Tank on ABC?

 It is one of my most favorite shows. All this week the show has aired every night and I can't tell you how excited I get to watch it each night. See also: I'm a loser. I wish I could come up with some awesome concept and go on there. I would totally choose Robert, he's my favorite Shark.

Crying. Oh my word the crying. And I'm not talking about Eli here. I'm talking about this pregnant girl's hormones. FOR THE LOVE why can't I stop crying?!?!? I'm typically an emotional person, in fact I've even talked on here before about how I once took medicine to help reign in my emotions, but since about the 5th week of this pregnancy I have cried about everything. One day at dinner I just started crying for no reason! When Luke asked why I was crying I said "I don't know I just feel like I should cry right now". He said it was the weirdest thing he had ever heard. Which I agreed with. I'm hoping this doesn't last the full 40 weeks!

I am still SO in love with my new blog design. Sometimes I come to my blog just to look at my pretty new design and beautiful tree that Jessica drew for me. Well this week I found out my blog designer Jessica is having an AMAZING special. And when I say amazing I mean INCREDIBLE. Starting today through the 15th she is offering full blog designs for $30. THIRTY DOLLARS. I'm not sure if you have priced blog designs or not but if you haven't that price is amazing. If you've ever even thought about getting a new blog look I would definitely take advantage of this special and contact Jessica.

This week is supposed to bring cooler (in the 80's) temps which makes me SO excited!! Eli and I like to go on a walk everyday and lately we've had to go early in the morning because it is so hot by around 9:00. Excited for cooler temps and the fall weather to start heading this way!!

  1. The crying thing is such a pregnancy issue. I hope it fixes itself for you soon:-) My daughter LOVES the little people too both the 80s version and the more current version. I am forever stepping on those people and they HURT~!

    And my mom has TONS of little LITTLE people like those from my childhood up in her attic. Can't wait till M is big enough (ie doesn't try to swallow EVERYTHING) and she can play with them :)

  11. LOVE the vintage toys!

    OMG have you seen that Carters commercial? It's on youtube - the "Count on Carters" one. Oh my. I just bawled my eyes out...as my hubby laughed at me. Darn hormones. I think I'd actually still cry at it if I wasn't pregnant though. Have a great weekend!

  12. I LOVE Shark Tank! Except sometimes I need to mute the TV because I get nervous when the Sharks go after someone and they are not prepared!

  13. Oh my goodness! When blogger went away, I decided to stop using a reader and just check in with my favortie blogs from time to time because I was becoming a little too invested in other people's lives. Anyway, I haven't caught up in a few weeks and I didn't know you were pregnant!! Congratuations. I was actually wondering a few posts back (I won't say when just in case you weren't :)-Lord, now that sounds mean, I just mean you're always so tiny and I thought I maybe spotted a bit of a bump because there was no roundness anywhere else-I'm digging myself deeper, huh? Nevermind. Congrats!)

    Also, I cried so much my second pregnancy. I caught myself crying at the national anthem at a minor league baseball game once-that's totally not me.

  14. We have the Little People from the 80s, too. The farm and the dollhouse. My boys LOVE them. And to add to the danger factor, some of ours are painted wooden ones, which means we're adding in the chance of lead poisoning. Yea!
