Five for Friday: We Have a Secret!

Happy, happy Friday! It is BEAUTIFUL out today, and it's supposed to be most of the weekend, too! Last night it was under 70* with low humidity - so unusual for August around here but I will take it!! Pre-season football was on TV and it was nice and cool outside... practically fall. Love!

I have been on a roll with Five for Friday posts lately... let's keep it going!

1 // Yesterday was a VERY exciting day... we had our 20-week anatomy scan, aka "we have a secret" day because we found out the sex of the baby! We are sharing with our families tomorrow, and then I'll be back next week to spill the beans here. Any guesses?? Our friends and family are split 50 / 50 it seems.


2 // We may or may not have gone directly from our ultrasound appointment to Target to buy baby clothes. I have been SO good so far and refrained from buying anything just because it's adorable - but I couldn't stand it any longer and had to make some purchases. We definitely had a few minutes of fun eyeing all the tiny clothes, knowing what is in our future!

3 // C and I were trying to decide what to do with ourselves this evening and were tossing a few ideas around - and then we remembered that we have a gift card to a local brewery! Score. Is there anything better than a dinner date with free dinner? Not to me. Ha!

4 // I have been on a Pintrest KICK lately - pin. all. the. things. I haven't had much desire to actually do much other than sit on the couch, thanks to the constant shoulder pain, but in my brain, I am cooking and baking and organizing and crafting. Ha!

Recent pins include football snacks, fall fashion, and this adorable wreath that I'd like someone to make for me. Any volunteers?


5 // We have been semi-binging on NCIS on Netflix this week. I always love the reruns when they are on TV, but realized that a) I have never really seen enough to understand the flowing story lines and b) all the seasons are on Netflix. Yahoo! Started from the beginning, now we.... here.

However, it always makes me insane when shows are based in the DC area but small details are totally incorrect. For example, NCIS HQ is at the Navy Yard in DC, but they can make it to Manassas in 15 minutes... on what planet?! I know, I know, it's just TV... but it really gets my goat. Totally unrealistic! Guess it might detract from the story a bit if they answered a call with "yep, be there in 2 hours because of rush hour traffic... sorry!"

Have a wonderful weekend, and I'll see you next week with a 20-week update and the big PINK or BLUE reveal!

So exciting about the gender, lady! I am guess pink, because duh, girls rule ;)! But boys are awesome too, haha.

GIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIRL, my husband and I complain ALLLLL the time about the unrealistic timeline with NCIS. We are JUSt outside DC and laugh when they make it back from Norfolk in the same afternoon they went down that morning. Ummm, on what universe is there NO beach traffic?!?!? Even the Quantico drive makes me laugh. Also, their 'Georgetown' sets are sooooo generically California. Don't even get me started on their 'annandale mall'. Good gravy!

Can't wait to find out. And fingers crossed for a future Pi Phi! I agree with those shows. JAG takes place in Falls Church where Mac is from, and it's nothing like that, haha.
