Five on Friday

Happy Friday lovelies!  Linking up for Five on Friday with Darci, Christina, Liz, and Natasha.


1.  Strawberry Picking – Ella and I had a playdate last week to pick strawberries with friends.  It was our first time to the berry farm and we had a lot of fun.  We’ll be back in a couple of weeks when the blueberries are ready.

2.  Family Video Shoot – The amazing Lindsey of Lenae Photography captured our family video portrait last week.


3.  Fruit & Coconut Water Popsicles – We are going to try our hand at making these amazing fruit & coconut water popsicles.  Don’t they look delicious and healthy?


4.  Screen Saver –  Last week I posted this on my Instagram as a reminder to pack in as much fun as we can into these long summer days.  I added it as my phone’s lock screen as well to help me be present.

5.  Speaking of Summer Fun – My hubby surprised the kids with this fun water slide.  It is all that they’ve wanted to do when at home.

  • Rachel G - It’s not quite strawberry season yet here, but I can’t wait till it begins!

  • Courtney - That slide is amazing! I want one…for the kid of course =) I’m bummed we couldn’t find the time to do the strawberry picking here this year. We went last year before Aria was crawling and we had so much fun. I can’t imagine how much better it would have been this year.

  • Jenny Collier - We really enjoyed the strawberry picking. Maybe you could go for the blueberries, Courtney?

  • Jenny Collier - It was almost the end of ours here. Next year I will be more on top of it! 😉

  • Jenny Collier - Thank you, Erin. You are so sweet. Funny that the sibling fighting got left of the cutting room floor. 😉

  • Jenny Collier - The slide has been a ton of fun. And thank you for the sweet words. I absolutely love how the video turned out!

  • Jenny Collier - I can’t even tell you how much it means to me, Darci. So special. Lindsey spoke to Ashley about coming to Houston to film one for her possibly. Maybe she could do yours at the same time. 😉

  • Jenny Collier - Yes, the swimwear is so cute! The top fits E perfectly but the bottoms are too big. Same for Huds. I promise to get a cute pic of them in them though (even if I have to pin it). LOL.

  • Jenny Collier - Thank you, Colleen. I am so happy with how the video turned out. And, H&E are having so much fun with the water slide. So worth the money!

  • Jenny Collier - Fun, right? :)

  • Kristal Strong - Oh, I need to take my kids to that berry farm!! Those Popsicles look so yummy! What a fun summer ahead with that water slide. Have a great weekend!

  • Cat @ MaryMarthaMama - What an awesome reminder for us to be present parents! I might have to add that to my phone too. And I’m a little jealous of your kids water slide! Happy Friday!

  • Amanda - I LOVED your family video, such a beautiful idea. You have a gorgeous family :) And that water slide looks like SO much fun! My kids would love that. Happy weekend!

  • Becky - Love all five!! And that video is amazing Jenny! Such a special keepsake.
