Five on Friday - Donuts, my Cutie and a Video

Good morning!! I'm linking up this morning with Darci of [the good life], April of A. Liz Adventures, Christina of Carolina Charm, and Natasha of Hello! Happiness for 5 on Friday!

ONE - I feel really lucky that each morning I get to scoop a warm, happy, sweet, cuddly Owen up from his crib and bring him into our bed (after changing that very wet diaper, of course). We drink our babas (me- coffee, him- milk) snuggle and watch a cartoon before heading downstairs for breakfast. It's our routine and we love it. I love starting our day this way and it is my FAVORITE part of the day EVERYDAY. So, having said that I thought it would only be fair if you got to start your day off with some of Owen's cuteness too! Welcome.

TWO - If you know me, you know I am all about the pictures. I love taking photos (don't love being in them) and I like when I can get a "good" one, i.e. perfect lighting and an interesting image be it in color, focus, perspective, etc. A while back I downloaded a copy of Courtney Westlakes book The Spaghetti Shots and last night I finally started reading it! I like that it's pretty straightforward and even I can figure out some of the photog lingo.


THREE - I've been obsessed with donuts lately. I don't even remember the last time I had one, but I've been seeing everyone on Instagram eating them lately and it is driving me nuts. I decided to buy one of those donut baking pans (I know, I know. Real donuts are fried), so you can expecting some baked donut recipes from me in the near future!

FOUR - A few things I've read this week that I really enjoyed, thought was neat and just plain loved:

My Top 10 Foods I Want to Eat at Disneyland During Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend by Half Crazy Mama

Saving a Slice of Grace for Myself by Erin Carroll of The Blue-Eyed Bride

DIY Cupcake Liner Garland from Hostess with the Mostess

FIVE - In my opinion Anthropologie is killing it in the Fall sweater department. I love being in a warm sweater when it's cool out, but I hate that so many of my favorite stores (Gap, Loft, Nordstrom) just carry some really basic sweaters. I LOVE the feminine detail on these sweaters and I think they'd be perfect with jeans and flats or even boots. I'll take them ALL! Please and thank you.

I hope you have a great weekend!!

Those sweaters are awesome!!! I love that hoodie!

Those funfetti donuts look amaze balls!! I love the idea of making homemade donuts (Ree Drummen made them on her cooking show yesterday), but they are quite labor intensive and I never have!

O is the cutest!! And we have a donut maker that I looooooove- I need to bust it out more for sure. And anthro's fall line kills it- I need one of EVERYTHING! Happy weekend!

LOL, I feel responsible for the overload of IG donut shots... this baby can't get enough! I made vegan chocolate donuts and they were awesome! Let me know i you want the recipe!

#1 What a great morning routine, wish we had that instead of rushing out of the house for work - there's always the weekend though ;)

#2 Great minds think alike, purchasing a donut pan is on my weekend to-do list :)


Natasha said...

Anthro needs to send out some coupons so I can actually afford to buy some sweaters!! hahaha...I need to save my pennies I guess ;)

And those doughnuts look SOOO good...let's face it though, anything funfetti is OK in my book

Owen is such a cutie pie! I could listen to his cute little voice all day!

Happily Ever Parker said...

I love all of anthro's stuff! I feel you on doughnuts however I need to get my paws on a croughnut!! It's on my to do list in New York!

Christina @ Still Lucky said...

That's our morning to routine whenever my husband is home! It's the sweetest, she loves cuddling up between us.

I have a donut pan that I've only used once! You've inspired me to get it out now. ;) I could use some donuts in my life! I'll have to check out that photography book, I really want to learn more about taking good photos.

Those donuts do look amazing!!! i need to explore a GF option!

Anthropologie could get me into trouble this season!!! so cute!

Making doughnuts is so much fun! I used to make them all the time! The are so good when they are freshly made and frosted. I've never baked them before, but I feel like they would be super tasty - especially those funfetti ones! o.m.gosh. they look amazing!
