Happy Friday! I’m linking up with Darci and friends for a fun Five on Friday!

{one} Brrr…it’s been cold here in Virginia!! The overnight lows this week were around -12 with the windchill! So, so cold! We had a two hour delay twice this week due to the cold temps, which was nice. I love being able to sleep a little longer and spending more time with my kiddos in the morning before work. However, the delay schedules make for very hectic days at school.

With these cold temperatures, I’m trying to get creative with activities for Will and Harper. They love being outside, so being cooped up is difficult. Any suggestions on good inside activities?

{two} I made some delicious banana muffins. These muffins are extra scrumptious, with Greek banana yogurt in the batter and sprinkles on top! I originally found the recipe on Darci’s blog. Will and Harper enjoyed these muffins as well:)

{three} I have been working on organizing our closets. Here is the closet in our small laundry/mud room that I’m (still in the process of) rearranging. Will loves to do art projects, so I’m giving him several shelves in the closet where he has access to his materials.

{four} I came across this beautiful dish mat on Etsy via this blog. What a great idea! Wouldn’t that mat look much prettier on your counter than the bulky dish drainer? It would save on space as well, since you could fold it up and tuck it away when the dishes were dry. I might just have to buy one!

{five} What Does the Fox Say? I’m loving Miss Harper’s new fox pajamas from Old Navy! She got these for Christmas from her Grammy (my mom). Harper’s a little obsessed with her fox and her kitty jammies and throws a fit when we have to get dressed in the mornings, ha! Old Navy always has such cute pajamas for girls and boys. It’s our go to store for kids’ pjs! (*not compensated, just love their pjs!).

Stay warm, and have a great weekend:)

  1. thanks for trying my recipe & I appreciate the linkback!

  2. that’s true, that pajama’s really cute!

  3. Those pjs are so cute! We were cooped up last weekend so I broke out the massive roll of paper in our closet and the markers. We taped it to the living room floor (so most of the floor was covered) and Mason drew shapes and scribbles for hours! Stay warm up there!

  4. Sprinkles on muffins for the win!! Brilliant!
    Happiest weekend to you, beautiful! xx

  5. Love the idea of adding sprinkles to the muffins! Very clever!

  6. It has been super cold here too. And today it decided to rain. I’m hoping the weekend is nicer so that we can escape the confines of the apartment!

  7. I feel your {freezing} pain, girl!! Monday the actual temp here was -11 & -33 wind chill! Our highs will be in the 40s this weekend though … I hope you’ll be thawing out and warming up soon too!! :) Sprinkles make everything better!! {Love it!} The jammies are absolutely adorable!! … Wishing you and your family a wonderful weekend!!
