- with all the rage being Essential Oils these days I can't help but get on the bandwagon.  But honestly, it's all a little overwhelming.  My friend Brittany wrote a great post about using oils in practical ways.

- my college roommate sent this to me a week or so ago and I honestly couldn't forward it out fast enough.  I've reread it a few times and I just love it so much.  It's a great reminder to mamas of young ones that we need gentleness and slowness during this season because our littles are growing so fast.  Save the mile-long to-do lists and packed social calendar for when they are in school all day.

- this post makes me cry.  a lot.  it is everything i want to say to georgia right now if only she understood.  although i think she kinda does.  and she will.

- georgia and i are really into making popsicles these days.  but every. single. time we've made them we can't get them out of the molds when they are frozen.  i have some pretty cheap popsicle molds but am i missing something here?  anyone want to help a sister out and recommend a strategy or some great popsicle molds?  because us lopatka ladies over neeeeeeeeed popsicles if ya know what i mean.

- this is the easiest and yummiest chicken bake.  i made it for the first time last week after matt made some homemade pesto and it was a hit!  it will be making it's rounds at our house quite often :)

- my wheels are starting to turn about potty training.  i'm debating as to whether to start with G before or after baby boy.  she won't be quite 2 when he's born so i know it's a tad early, but she is showing some signs that she is ready now (I will still wait a few more months).  so i'm torn.  having one child in diapers would be amazingggggg, but i don't want to push the little lady since she is going to have to share her throne here pretty soon anyway.  suggestions mamas?

happy friday!

My girls were both 22 months when they potty trained. It took 2-3 days and no pull-ups...ever! She will let you know when she is ready.
