High Five for Friday!

It has been a strange week in our neck of the woods. We have had a very weird schedule due to my mom being off for two days and Maxwell hurting his back and not going to work, we have been with people everyday. Normally, I miss my down time but I've gotten some great down time having extra hands to help with things this week. So lets get to the highlights!

1. On Sunday my mom and I did a long day of cooking. We roasted up more of our tomatoes and made a large batch of my Copy-Cat Nordstrom's Tomato Basil Soup. It turned out great and is all packaged and in the freezer for another day. I am starting to prep meals and get things in the freezer for when baby girl arrives and while flag football season in in session. Fall is a busy time of year for us and it's about to get busier!
2. On Monday, my mom wanted to do some touristy things in San Diego, since we live in a beautiful place, why not enjoy some things we don't normally do? So we went for breakfast at a little cafe in Coronado, played on the bayside beach, took the ferry into downtown, walked around Seaport Village, rode the carousel and came back all before nap time. It was a very fun morning adventure!
3. This week we also had our new built-in closet piece installed in the kid's room. I can't wait to blog about this project but for now this is how it looks. Talk about a work in progress, especially when your hubby is injured! I'm so excited about this though and am getting everything in order in the rooms for this little one to come! I'm getting excited! About 13 weeks until we meet her!
4. Yesterday, I just got my CEW Birchbox special boxes. They are sadly sold out now but I will soon review the products I received! I seriously LOVE Birchbox! It is so worth the $10 a month! Yes these are extra's but it's so fun to get new things.
5. And finally, I'm so excited! This morning, I signed up for A Cuppa Kim's MugSwap. I have never done an internet Swap before but have always been interested, so I thought why not? You don't have to be a blogger to sign up and you buy a mug for someone and then someone, hopefully, sends you one. I'm excited for this internet "adventure" and will blog about my experience at the end of the month. If you are feeling adventurous, head over there and sign-up yourself. It could be a lot of fun!

I hope you all have a great weekend! And if you want to see what I'm up to throughout the week, follow me on Instagram @bearcubcreations.
