5 Favorites

I'm linking up with Hallie at Moxie Wife blog for 5 favorites!

I love this idea of 5 favorites. Everyone that links up with Hallie is short, sweet, and right to the point. I, on the other hand, have already thought of a monologue for each thing listed, but I will do my best to follow suite and constrain myself. 
As I was thinking of my favorites, I also thought of my not-so-favorite to parallel each item and it was really cracking me up. Does anyone else do that?? Probably not, but for some reason I just HAD to mention it.

1. Babies who are 6 months 
Love n' me some 6 month old babies. I just can't seem to get enough of my Hopie girl and her best friend, Zuzu, who is also just as cute as a button!

2. The CFR Friars who are visiting! 

There is nothing better than when the Friars are down for a visit! Brother PT, who is holding Hope, is such a dear friend and it just feels like family when he is around. Not to mention we can talk about our mutual love for his niece (my God daughter) Therese, which is so much fun. We have been truly blessed to have him and Brother Ignatius in our home for the last couple of days.

3. Udi's Bread 
Here at Team Boda we seem unable to survive without this here bread. Hence, packing all four kiddos in the minivan at 4pm today to make an unexpected visit to Trader Joe's. (We also needed a solitary tomato for tonight's taco's, so the trip was well worth it. :) And yes, we pay a whopping 5 dollars for each loaf we buy, and yes, Matt makes a comment at least once a week about how outrageous that price is. But as far as gluten free bread is concerned, this is the best we have found. 
Peanut Button Dark Chocolate + Protein

Today at Trader Joe's we also picked up some of these amazing bars. Have you ever tried them? The kids and I love them. They are super good and this particular one tastes like a chocolate dessert. They are gluten free, high in protein and low in sugar, all things I love in my granola bars. The down side is that they are a tad bit pricey when handing them out 4 at a time. But I figure a buck 80 a pop for breakfast or quick snack is better than stopping at Wendy's, which we never do anyways. So I am actually saving money, Right? Did you follow that logic? 

5. Babies on the Beach

For more go and visit Hallie and all her friends!


  1. I love UDI's bread too! It's kinda a staple in our house too.

  2. You are so funny, Kristin!! :) I love your writing style. Um, Hopie's bathing suit is AMAZING! I think she and Zuzu should have a party on the beach sometime. Then you could have TWO of your fave things at once. Well, you could bring some snacks (ie those bars) and pack sandwiches with the bread... and bring the CFRs with you... THEN YOU COULD HAVE ALL OF YOUR FAVES AT THE SAME TIME!!

    Is your mind blown?! :)

    1. Hahaha!! Yes, we must do that soon. :) I can't wait to tell Matt that you think I'm funny!!

  3. I totally line up my least faves too! In fact, i was considering using that theme as a Five Faves sarcastic edition this week after a particularly trying day. i refrained. :) So glad I'm not alone!

    1. So glad that you let me know!! I feel a lot better now :). I wanted to say how I love me some 6 month old babies and then show a picture of the mountain of laundry that I had on my couch and say that I hated that! Hahaha.

  4. Precious little baby! Some CFR Friars used to stay w/ my parents some times, and it was always great to see them. I'll have to try those bars the next time I make it to TJs...but I might just keep them for myself. :)


Please leave a comment, I la la love to hear from you!
