Friday Five

1. Avery's getting a new room! Well, sort of. We got her big girl bed last night (we bought it from some people whose daughter only used it for 2 years; it was exactly what I was looking for and we got a great deal on it), so now I'm hoping it inspires me to clear out our current guest/craft room so Avery's furniture can go there for Baby Boy's nursery. Ah! There's so much to do! Good thing I still have a few more months.

Avery's new bed
Possible bedding (the closest I can find to the one I LOVE at Pottery Barn and could never afford)
2. If you missed my last post, I'm taking Org Junkie's 52 Week Organizing Challenge this year. I just bought a few storage containers at the Dollar Tree (they have a really good selection and it's cheaper than Walmart) to get me started, and I can't wait to cross projects off my list!

3. When I was pregnant with Avery, my biggest craving was cereal. However, I alternated between Lucky Charms and Captain Crunch Berries, so it wasn't like it was healthy or anything.  This time around, I cannot stop eating stupid Malt-O-Meal (hey, we're poor now) knockoff Super Golden Crisp. I eat multiple bowls a day. It's sad really. But Matt just emailed me a link to an article that says that cereal is actually one of ten foods that can help you sleep. So there. My bedtime cereal-eating ritual is not as bad as I thought. Humor me.

4. Speaking of Matt, he has to take some choir kids to Waco tonight for a competition, so I'm on my own until tomorrow night when he comes home (hopefully in time to meet us at Chuy's for Allison's birthday dinner). But I'm so excited that my cousin Amy is coming over tonight for a girls' night in!

5. And speaking of excitement, we go on our Christmas/anniversary/birthday cruise in 20 days! Yippee!  I have no idea how to pack for a cruise in the middle of winter. And we haven't planned any excursions or anything. Any advice?

Hope you all have a great weekend!

1. Cute bedding!
2. Love dollar stores. We doing a sort of challenge over here but not ready to start yet.
3. Love Lucky Charms. I have never had Malt-O-Meal but I read somewhere that there is a sale at Walmart...or free if you got the coupon. I just read that sleep food article too!
4. Hate when the hubby is away.
5. Never been on a cruise so I can't help you there.

Have a great weekend.

Love the bed and the bedding, super cute! I am a cereal girl, too...I love it. However, since I cut out most dairy, I eat much less of it because some of it just doesn't taste right with rice or almond milk!

Can't help with the cruise, I have never been on one, hope you have fun!
