Five On Friday

It's time for another edition of Five on Friday and I do hope you'll join along!

Remember, all you have to do is post about five things on your mind, add our logo (found at the bottom of this post), and join the party using the linky tools below. Easy, and a great way to find new blogs and be found. :)

I am ready to step up my mug game. I love these choices I found from World Market, Anthropologie, and Urban Outfitters!


Clockwise, top left: 

I saw these amazing looking Oreo bars (three ingredients ... basically an Oreo version of Rice Krispie treats!) on Ally's Five On Friday post last week, and I purchased my Oreos and marshmallows yesterday. Can't wait to whip up a batch for the weekend. Thanks Ally for the idea!

No-Bake Chewy Cookies and Cream Bars

We had SUCH a fun time yesterday at Freedom Park with my friend Christina from Carolina Charm! Don't Caroline and Camille look thrilled?! Well, it was getting close to naptime (which is probably why Christina and I look ELATED). I was so happy to meet Thomas yesterday and just spend two hours talking non-stop with her. Thanks, sweet friend, for some good girlie time.

So, I mentioned last Friday that I was on the hunt for a melon baller, and I wasn't sure whether going with a cheapie was a bad decision? WELL, I am here to report that cheap = perfectly good! I was in Bed Bath & Beyond this week picking up some marriage-savers, WHOOPS, I mean comforter clips, and I spied a melon baller for just over $2 there! I am happy to report that it is totally legit and worked so well on the melon salad I linked to last week (which is as delicious as I was hoping it would be). So, pick up a cheapie melon baller, and NOT that $20 one. Yikes.

(And PS, not really kidding about the comforter clips being marriage-savers. No more "you gave me the side with no comforter in the duvet!" gripes from either of us.)

Just a mushy moment, thank you to all of you who link up with us each week. I enjoy popping in and reading your blogs, and it means so much to me that you share a little peek into your lives with me and everyone else!

Keep Choosing Joy

TGIF y'all, and hope you will join in on Five on Friday this week! Cheers to the weekend!


  1. Love the photo of you and Christina with the kids! So fun that you live close to each other! And those oreo bars....oh my word!

  2. holy moly, those brownies! aw looks like you guys had fun at the park, despite the girls' faces. too funny! i met christina many moons ago in charleston bc we have mutual friends. shame you and i never did!

  3. Those Oreo bars!!! YUM. Also, I'm pretty much the world's biggest mug hoarder. I LOVE them! the hubs gets so upset when I come home with a new one haha.

  4. I really want to make those oreo treats now! Oh my goodness! Also, good to know about the melon baller. I've always wanted one, but can never justify the cost. It looks like you've had a great week!

  5. I absolutely love mugs!! Great choices :) I think it's so sweet you got the girls together to play!

  6. I have a bit of cup obsession and have to stop myself from buying them all! I love those mugs!

  7. I've been wanting to have a unique mug collection - it always makes home coffee seem fancy. Freedom Park is so much fun! When my first was this age we were playground nomads around the entire area! Charlotte is such an awesome city (and now my poor 3rd who is the same age as Camille hardly sees a playground!). Have a great weekend!

  8. Those oreo bars look SO SO good. I love cute coffee mugs. For the longest time I had just plain white ones that matched our correlle. BORING. Last Christmas I got a 2 initial mugs at Target (all that was left!) and we also picked up two Starbucks mugs that matched! Someone gave me a cute pink one that I use for my nightly tea. (trying to cut back on the wine....)

  9. did I not know that comforter clips were a thing?! Wish I'd been smart enough to invent them. Oh, and those oreo bars look positively scrumptious. I might need to make those!

  10. Oh man that salad looks so good! Now that I am expecting the only things I crave are prosciutto and salami! SMH.

  11. Okay! Definitely trying those bars soon! Have a great wknd!

  12. Let us know how the oreo bars are, I'm sure they will be amazing!! And holy cow going to get comforter clips TOMORROW… I have no idea there was such a thing! we DESPISE how our duvet shifts! Thanks for saving our marriage ;) Xoxo!

  13. Those oreo bars look delish!! I will definitely have to try them. And your girl time outing looks like so much fun. I love getting some time with friends! Thank you for hosting this each week! I've met some really cool lovelies! Happy Weekend to you!
