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. :)

Thank you to everyone who links up with us each week. And a super happy birthday to my lovely fellow FoF hostess, Christina!

I'm super excited because Ian and I are Raleigh-bound today for his cousin Kristen's wedding! I am a big fan of weddings. Watching the bride walk down the aisle. Seeing everything she painstakingly chose ... bridesmaids gowns, ceremony music, readings, reception decor, the menu, first dance song, the dance with dad, the exit, the whole nine yards. And I'm also excited about dancing with Ian and having a night away! In a hotel! Where we can maybe sleep until 8am! Hallelujah!


Love is the answer:

Is it messed up that I seriously offered to pack Children's Benadryl for Ian and me to take tomorrow night to ensure a good night's rest, and the slight possibility of sleeping in? I'm serious. Also on the packing list will be two eye masks and two sets of earplugs. Mama wants sleep. Good, serene, hotel sleep.

My aunt pinned this the other day and I was drooling. Positively eye candy. If you could only choose one, which would it be?

My choice: middle finger, second up from base of finger. Second choice: pointer finger, bottom aqua/teal colored stone. Gorgeous!

Yes to all of them! (12) Tumblr:

Yesterday we had music class at Miss Amy's, and Camille was really enjoying it. This was the first time she got to play on her own "drums", and she was loving it! I put a video on Instagram last night. I love seeing her try out new toys and instruments. I found these Sound Shapes on Amazon (here) and they are pretty expensive, in my opinion! They do have this mini-verson for less which may be a good Christmas gift for her.

Not ashamed to admit that I'm on the pumpkin bandwagon and I've been burning a pumpkin candle (Scentsationals soy candle, from TJ Maxx) and using this lotion from Bath & Body Works. It smells sooo delicious. And the kicker is that I had a coupon for a free full-sized product, so I redeemed it for this. I don't know how I got on their coupon mailing list, but it's SO worth it. Every few months I have received a coupon for a free trial-sized lotion or shower gel, and this full-sized product coupon was a real treat. So YES, pumpkin pumpkin pumpkin pumpkin. I want it all. I will definitely vouch for this scent, if you're on the hunt for new lotion.



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

  2. I do not think that is messed up at all. As a matter of fact, I think it's genius! My next overnight without children, I will probably follow suit and take some Benadryl! Hope you get some sleep! And get to sleep in. :) Happy Weekend!

  4. Ohmygosh, so funny that you're packing children's meds for sleep! Two weeks ago, hubs and I escaped on our babymoon to Cape Cod and left our toddler with my folks... We def could have used your tip before we left! We did sleep in until 7:30 though, and it was glorious. I feel like only parents of young children understand how real this struggle is! :)

  5. I am not much of a ring person, but if I had to choose any of the first four bands on the pinky finger. I love that look. Simple but elegant. I am a fan of the pumpkin latte scent though. Have some myself. Enjoy your weekend.

    1. Haha - I should have clarified - Camille won't be with us ... this is just a parent's night away. The Children's Benadryl is for us! A small swig of it is all it takes for a really peaceful sleep for us! LOL :)

  11. Hotel sleep....the greatest!!! Pull those black out shades tight and enjoy it :)

  12. I'm with you: we ALWAYS pack some sort of sleep aid when we travel without Walker! Nothing better than getting a full, good night's sleep….and waking up later than 6 or 7 a.m.! Hope y'all have a great weekend!

  14. I love that you have Camille in a music class! Chandler and I just started Music Together here, in Columbia, and she is loving it! Isn't it so fun to watch them wiggle around to the music. So sweet! And I LOVED your video on IG. I definitely need to capture Chandler in action in her class too!

  19. Hope you have a great time at the wedding!!! They are such a good excuse to be surrounded in a luxury at a hotel (even if the luxury is the king sized bed and it's only for a day!). - Svetlana @Life With a Side of Wine
