A Bunch of Randoms


Happy Friday from this busy girl!  She is starting to love her playmat that my friend Cate got her!

Can I just tell you that I have been writing this since Tuesday?  It started off as an confessions post and then I couldn't finish it in time on Wednesday or Thursday, so I just gave up and it became a Five on Friday.  Because apparently it now takes me 3 days to get my act together for one (not that exciting) post ;)  But here I am and it's Friday so YAY for that!

ONE | Olympics
Best part about this Friday is the start of the Olympics!  Summer is my favorite to watch, especially gymnastics and volleyball.  I love it all though.  I'm just so happy that something exciting will be on TV 24/7... since I feel like I'm up 24/7 right now.  I think we're going to be ordering pizza and watching the Opening Ceremonies tonight.

TWO | Instagram
What do we think of the newest Instagram update with the stories?  Basically completely stealing from Snapchat and kind of even wondering how they can do that... but not going to lie, I like it.  At first I rolled my eyes aaand then I realized how nice it is to now only have to check ONE app instead of two!  I'm all about saving time these days, haha.  So make sure to follow me over @ ka5ohare - if you like pictures of babies and dogs and trips to Starbucks, anyway.


THREE | Tanning Help
I am THE palest I have ever been for the beginning of August.  I haven't cared too much because there is about 8 million other things to care about with a newborn, but we are going to a wedding shower this weekend which meant I needed to get my act together.  My two favorite sunless tanners: this lotion for every day (I promise the smell has improved so much) and these towels for when you really need to look good aka pretending you just got back from a beach vacation.

FOUR | Blog Buddies
Nothing better than blogging friends!  Sara is the sweetest and sent us these gorgeous Kate Spade picture frames for Haddie's nursery.  I am so in love!  They look perfect and I can't wait to fill them with pictures from our newborn photo shoot.  Thank you again, Sara!!  We love you!


FIVE | New Computer
My computer is in terrible shape aka it's about to completely die on me at any minute, BUT this weekend we are fixing that!  We are going to be buying a very seriously needed new computer and I. Can't. Wait. I'll finally be able to get back on my blogging track and doing all the online shopping - like this adorable bodysuit :) and I just ordered this skincare set, can't wait to try it!

Hope you guys have fun weekends ahead, too!

  7. I'm still not sold on the Instagram stories, I just love Snapchat filters! And yes to the Olympics! I love those tan towels too, such a gorgeous glow! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  8. Those frames are so cute! I have mixed feelings about the Insta stories - I don't have snapchat, so I am intrigued... but I haven't used the stories yet myself.

  9. YES to the Olympics and LOVING those KS frames, so pretty! I'm so not on board with the Instagram stories, but I do like the idea of having to check one less social media app. I feel like I'm never caught up, and that's just ridiculous! Happy Friday gurlie and I can't wait to see what computer you choose <3

  10. Those frames are SO cute and that is so sweet that she sent those to you! I'm on the fence with Insta stories just because I love Snap chat, but I think they are totally going to take over. And who doesn't love puppy, baby and Starbucks pictures ;)

  12. Blogging takes me for-ever sometimes! Don't feel bad. Yay for cute frames, blogging buddies and new computers! And I saw your starbucks drive thru insta the other day and laughed. I wish there was a drive through for everything! Hope you guys have a great weekend!

  14. We are so excited for the Olympics as well but I bet you're super pumped since you have to be up at all hours with Haddie lol Those picture frames are so pretty and perfect for her nursery! I can't believe how Instagram completely ripped off Snapchat!! I'll probably stick with Snapchat for now though - I don't have any cute puppies or babies to share lol

  15. I just got a new computer & I'm still trying to get it all set up with my photo software. The struggle is real.

    I've never done Snapchat so this IG Story is all new to me & I'm loving it too - I'm like obsessed with checking it every half hour at everyone's stories. Kate Hudson is my favorite so far :)

  16. Soooo what you are saying is that the Jergens lotion no longer smells like pretzels? Haha! I used to love using that one even though the smell was rough. Those picture frames are gorgeous!!!! I am totally looking forward to gymnastics as well. Hope you have a great weekend!

  17. What a cute play mat!! Baby B is starting to use his too! I am sloooowly warming up to the IG stories... I still love the snapchat filters! Especially after a night of no sleep ha! Happy weekend!!

  18. Sweet little Haddie! Love her:) She is the cutest. And love the adorable KS frames - what a precious gift for the nursery. Blogger friends are THEE best.

    On a random side note (and no, I don't sell it) I just have to say, from one fellow fair skinned mama to another, the Rodan & Fields sunless tanner is the very best I've ever tried. And I've tried everything. It literally doesn't streak. Doesn't smell. Applies easily. Stays on for a week. And looks so dang natural. I am stocking up now for the fall so I can continue to wear skirts and shorter dresses without blinding everyone (ha!) Worth a try if you've never used it! Happy Friday:)

  19. I'm so with you on getting a post put together... it takes days! I am also SO pale for August so I love the Dr Dennis Gross alpha beta glow pads. They are like skincare + self tanner (killing two birds with one stone, I'm all about it) and the results are fantastic. I only use for my face/chest so I may have to check out the jargens again after all these years!

  20. i really need a new skincare routine so i'm checking that stuff out. those frames are GORGEOUS.
    i like snapchat being snapchat and instagram being instagram. i don't have the energy or brain cells to do another thing haha

  21. Awe, those frames are beautiful! True story - I wanted to send you a gift but felt weird asking for your address, lol. :) Yay for a new computer! Ryan got me a new laptop for Christmas last year, and it has made such a difference.

  22. Liam was born right before the last summer olympics and it was amazing! Babies only want to eat & sleep on you, so why not lounge on the couch for nonstop Olympic coverage!

  23. Aw she is so precious! Love her! I need to try the IG stories, I've seen them, but haven't done anything with it yet. I will definitely be following along. Yay for the Olympics! Taht is ideal 24/7 baby duty!
