Five on Friday vol. 7

Am I the only one that says "Wow, it's Friday already?" every time we get to the end of the work week? Sometimes it seems the days go by so slowly, but in retrospect, it all goes so fast, doesn't it??

So I guess it's time for 5 on Friday!

ONE // 
I wore patterned leggings for the first time the other week. I really like them, but if I'm being honest, I kinda felt like a wannabe. lol. I don't know. What do you think of this new trend??

TWO //
Zulily contacted us again this week and wanted Bennett to come back and do some more modeling for their website. Umm, YES! We had a blast last time we went down there! So I packed up both kiddos and we headed downtown for B's photoshoot! This time, they had Bennett model some "super fan" football gear. He looked pretty adorable, and enjoyed throwing the football back & forth with his stylist.

He'll be featured again on Zulily's website on 11/14/13 :)


THREE // 
As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I got knocked down with a pretty nasty cold in the beginning of the week, which totally sucked. But I bounced back pretty quickly and I'm feeling much better! I have a leftover cough that's annoying, but thankful I'm over the worst of it!
So tonight, my Husband and I are going on a double date with our good friends Kiara & Chad, to go see Thor: The Dark World! I don't usually like Superhero movies, but I thoroughly enjoyed Thor. So I'm pretty stoked to see the 2nd one today!


FOUR //
Here I was thinking that Easton took after my side of the family, but then Philip's Dad posted this photo on Facebook. So, of course, I had to do a side by side comparison of my Father-in-law & little Easton. Guess the Chiappini genes are stronger than I thought ;-)

And that's it for now. Can't think of a fifth thing to talk about, ha ha.

A wannabe? You're silly! I love them and think they look great on you. I have a pair of Aztec print ones and didn't have a top long enough to cover my bum, so, I had to (HAD to, ha!) go to Target the other night, and found a top...can't wait to wear them!

LOVE the patterned leggings on you! I have never tried this trend but it looks awesome on you. And HOW darn exciting about being on Zulily!?

Krista said...

You're totally rocking the patterned leggings! Love!

In general, I hate the patterned leggings trend (although I used the say the same about skinny jeans and guess what I'm now wearing!). BUT, You're the first person I've seen them on and liked. I think you balanced that outfit very well - a basic solid shirt and no jewelry bling, let the pants be the bold statement - well done!

Sami Seibert said...

I'm nervous to try the printed leggings too!! Some look so cute but don't know how they will look on my legs!

Looks like you pulled them off well!!!

Happy Friday!

Honestly, I can't stand printed leggings - on anybody. They're just ridiculous and not flattering. I think the only people who can pull them (or skinny jeans) off are small children. You asked; please don't hate me.

And oh my goodness, Thor. Yummy. I thank God my daughter is obsessed with the Avengers. So much man candy, on repeat nonetheless!

LOVE the pattern leggings. I totally want a pair - just not sure if I can pull it off!
Have fun at Thor. I really like movies in that genre!
And I totally see Easton in your f.i.l!

Laura Railing said...

Mandy dear you will NEVER be a wannabe. You are special and amazing and all YOU.Loves :)

Sarah [NurseLovesFarmer.com] said...

Easton looks like his little twin! Mandy I am with you on the patterned leggings. I feel kinda "out there" especially being a small town farm wife wearing very LOUD leggings to Braden's playschool pick up/drop off....but I don't care! SO COMFY!!!!

Fran said...

We went to see Thor too! What did you think? I love it haha

Branson said...

Hmmm... I am not a super hero movie fan, but it would make my hubby happy if I went to see them more often. Maybe I need to branch out, lol.

Leah D said...

Love you in those patterned leggings. You can totally pull them off.

Rj and Jessie said...
