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. :)

A mom in a local reselling group here in Charlotte raved about these WALMART SHORTS ... yes, you're hearing me correctly. I picked them up the other day and they are great. They are $7.88! If you are ordering online, I typically would have picked up a size XS, but I wanted to err on the side of them being a little looser than tighter on me, so I went with the small. I'm glad I went that route. I wore them yesterday with a slouchy grey v-neck tee from Loft and some silver sandals. Definitely a great find! I'd love to order them in another color or two.

Speaking of a great find, yesterday I purchased this Gold Leaf Chandelier after seeing it on Copycat Chic. This is one of my favorite blogs to follow. They post a beautiful decor item (like the chandy on the left coming in at nearly $1400) and then a less expensive copycat version. I could not turn down the $147 version -- and it should be here in just a few days!

Cheers to beautiful, sunny afternoons! We broke out the sidewalk chalk yesterday from the dollar store and Camille was definitely a fan. Three cheap things you can snag at Dollar Tree for these fun summer days: sidewalk chalk, bubbles, and silly string. All toddler approved.

At my aunt's suggestion, we have started watching Bloodline on Netflix. We are three episodes in and we are absolutely hooked. Family drama -- everyone has it. Who else is watching?

Lastly, for all of the mamas out there who are nursing. My sister told me about these Milkies for when you are breastfeeding. For the price, I just wasn't sure if I wanted to pull the trigger on them, but I ended up ordering them. When you are nursing on one side, you just slip this on the other side and it collects leaking milk that you can then add to a bottle and save for later. I'm personally able to save about 0.5-1 ounce each time that I feed Charlotte. I've been adding that milk into a bottle to keep in the fridge or freeze ... great for when we have a babysitter.

I'll do a post later about favorite baby items this second time around, but I just couldn't help but to share this now!

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

  11. OMG! We're obsessed with Bloodline! We've watched almost the entire 1st season in 3 weeks. We literally put the kids to bed and jump on to the couch to watch an episode (or two!). I'm so excited that the 2nd season is already out so that we can start right into that one. ha! Have a great weekend!

  13. Do NOT waste your money on the Milkies.... They are a nightmare. The concept is there, but they leak. If you move or adjust the way you are sitting it just dumps out. I love Bloodline! It is a great show!

  15. So glad you like the milkies. When I was pregnant (2014 baby) I looked into these, but didn't pull the trigger. Maybe next time 😊. Also, April have you heard of the kiinde breastfeeding system? I hadn't when I was pregnant, but may buy also next time around. Pump directly into a bag and just screw a nipples onto the bag. Woah!
