Five Favorites vol. 5

Another week of my latest five faves with Hallie of Moxie Wife!

Draw Something

iPhone Screenshot 3

So, yeah, I’m a little obsessed with this app right now, thanks to my sister-in-law. Not only is it fun to guess others’ drawings and draw for others, but it has been a great way to keep connected with long-distance family members! Sometimes we need to text each other for hints, because some of us (ahem) aren’t the best drawers in the world! I use the free version, which includes ads, but there is also a paid version available without ads.

The Children’s Place Slim Utility Pants

I have had trouble finding pants that don’t hang off of my soon-to-be four year old daughter. So I was excited when I bought her a pair of slim pants online and they fit her perfectly! The utility pants pictured above can also be cuffed and buttoned to make capris!

Popsicle Molds

I recently bought the Tovolo Groovy Ice Pop Molds to replace the nice Tupperware set that my mom passed down to me, because we accidentally threw a few of the reusable handles in the trash! I love making inexpensive, healthy frozen treats for the girls. Plus, it keeps them busy and quiet for a few minutes!

The Best Chocolate Cake Recipe EVER!

Adam’s 29th birthday cake by Creative Crumbs

Seriously, don’t look any further for your go-to chocolate cake recipe, because there is no need! My friend, Abby Head, of Creative Crumbs shared this, and everybody who has tasted this cake says it is amazing! She used this recipe for the football/music cake above!

Coral Nailpolish

Tropix + Iced Coral Layers of CND Shellac

When the weather gets warmer, I’m always ready to brighten up my nailpolish!  I’m loving this combination of colors to create a fun, shimmery coral shade!  Now, if I can just figure out how to better manage my cuticles!

    Love that coral color! I have heard coral and mint are hit colors for the spring and summer:)

    Draw Something is addictive! I even bought the paid version…

    Popsicle molds are life savers with a large family and long summers.
