29 again (and again) and other fun.

Happy Friday!!  I'm a little late to the game today because my sweet boys had lemon blueberry birthday pancakes and mimosas waiting on me when I woke up - and obviously, I couldn't turn down a yummy breakfast!  We have a fire going and if I play my cards right, I might just stay in my pajamas all day!  My kind of day!

Anyway, let's get to Five on Friday!  I hope you'll join me, April, Christina and Natasha for our fun Five on Friday link-up.  Details below if this is your first time hearing about it!


[ONE]
I woke up to these yummy lemon blueberry pancakes this morning along with a mimosa filled mason jar tumbler.  My husband knows me well.  Side note - he made these lemon blueberry pancakes by the Pioneer Woman and oh.my.word. were they amazing!!!!   Truly the best pancakes I've ever had.  Jackson may have eaten four of them and what seemed like 82 pieces of yummy bacon.  Don't worry, I only let him have two glasses of mimosas.  ;) ;)  I kid, I kid.   But really, I have to brag on my husband.... so sweet and so good!!!

[TWO]
I got to meet up with a sweet friend for lunch this week.  Crazy to think it wasn't that long ago that we were both in our twenties, working a whole lot of hours each week (for the same company) and now we are moms!  Life happens fast!  So thankful for sweet friends!

[THREE]
This little love.  He's only 2.5 and my heart sank the other day when he put on his baseball cap, grabbed his backpack and said "I go B's house!"  (that's my brother's house)  I can already see this happening all too often.  Uncle B will be the crazy fun one and he'll basically just want to move in with him.  Ha!  Anyway, I had to get a picture of this .... he looked so grown up.  My sister-in-law had the flu, so we didn't get to go over to their house (and haven't seen them for almost two weeks).  Jackson is missing his uncle B, that's for sure .... he asks to go to his house or "go get him" every.single.day.  Bless his heart!

[FOUR]
What good is turning 29 again ... and again (this is my second year in a row to turn 29, again) without buying yourself a few things?! ;)  Yes, the pink blazer is now mine and just needs a quick trip to the tailor.  The "cold hands, warm heart" mug is FINALLY in stock and available online...  I swear, it's been out of stock everywhere for a month!  I bought four of them from my sweet friend Megan over at Heart & Home Collection and cannot wait for them to arrive.  ****UPDATE:  the Kate Spade mugs are sold out again (already!), but Megan at Heart & Home Collection is putting a few aside right now for my friends / readers.  So, if you for sure want one, email her right this minute at info@heartandhomecollection.com.  :)  The same is true for the Emily Ley planner - it should be here in the next week or so!  Cheers to 31 ... or 29 (again and again)!  Ha!

 [FIVE]
And lastly, this.....  
I'm off to do just that!


Okay, so now it's your turn to link-up with us!  It's beyond easy and so fun [but really, share any five things, link back to one of our blogs, post the fun logo below and link-up!].  Make sure to stop by and say hello to my sweet friends who host this along with me every Friday!  AprilChristina and Natasha make this little link-up go round!  :)

April of A. Liz Adventures said...

Happy birthday darrrrrrrling friend! You deserve a third mimosa, so go pour yourself one. At least drink it for me! :)

Hope this year is your BEST 29th year yet!

southern daze said...

I know I just sent you Happy Birthday wishes via Facebook but I figure you can't ever have too many happy wishes on your special day :) I had to laugh that you're "29 again x2" because I remember how hard turning 30 was for me. I will say, though, that my 30's ended up being awesome!! Turning 40 was only made better by the party Lee threw me but I have to say, I'm loving them. Only saying that so you don't fear them as much as I did. Hope you have a wonderful day and definitely hope to meet IRL one day!!

Elise @ Cheers Yall said...

Happy Birthday!!!!! I hope you have a wonderful weekend - it looks like you're on your way there!! Jackson is SO ADORABLE...when did he turn into a little man??? When Cam wears a baseball cap, I die...seriously. PLEASE do a review on your new planner...I want it, but need to know it's worth the "investment." Hahaha...I am so used to Target prices. ;)

hello erin said...

[darci @ the good life] said...

Ladies - thank you 100 times over for all of the sweet birthday wishes!! I appreciate each and every one of them!!

Quick heads up too if you'd mentioned that you want a "cold hands, warm heart" mug that I posted about.... you can email info@heartandhomecollection.com to order one. They are sold out on her site again (that was FAST!), but she has some more on the way, so you can pre-order one directly with her! HAPPY FRIDAY, ALL!

Happy "29th" birthday to you! Those pancakes sound so yummy! I agree with all of your inspirational quotes. We need to "enjoy today" and "be grateful" for life as it is right now!!! Your little one does look so grown up in the above picture...Kids do grow up way too fast! I'm loving this link-up. Thank you for hosting!

How sweet are your boys; such a lucky mama! I might need to make those pancakes this weekend, although I'm not sure anything compares to the lemon poppy seed pancakes that have been floating all over Pinterest!

Awww, your sweet boy does look more grown up than 2.5. *Tear* My little guy is already 5. I wish I could make time slow down! That mug "cold hands, warm heart" is a-mazing! Happy 29th!! ;)

Jennifer said...

Happy Happy Birthday Darci! My little guy is 2.5 too and it does seem so big all of a sudden. I think you are going to love your new jacket and that color is just amazing! Pink is always my first choice. YUMMY pancakes and what an amazing husband. Pretty sure my hubby made a Starbucks run on my birthday and I was impressed. Your man has set the bar higher for bloggers across America. Hope you have had a terrific day!
