Five On Friday ... No Pinches Please!

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. :)

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
We are wearing our green today, and if all goes as planned, Camille will be sipping on her green-tinted milk this morning. I don't know if she will be enthralled or totally turned off to it. But we are definitely going to give it a shot. Whether it's a wild success or a horrible failure, I'll be sure to report back.

Happy St Patrick's Day!May you live as long as you want and never want as long as you live. #pastlivesny #joncontino by pastlivesny:

Want a fun cocktail idea? Add green food coloring to your water and freeze it into cubes! Then whenever you add your green cubes to your clear cocktail, it takes on the perfect green tinge for St. Patty's!


This particular (easy) cocktail is just a mixture of cucumber melon sparkling water, mint vodka, and green cubes.

Mint vodka, YES! It's from Dixie Vodka, which is handcrafted out of Charleston, South Carolina. It was named “The South’s Best Tasting Vodka”, and I seriously can't rave about their mint vodka enough.

Have you taken advantage of the Spring giveaway from Grove Collaborative? Time is running out for the freebies -- it expires THIS Sunday.

They are seriously one of my favorite companies to purchase products from. Large enough for competitive pricing, small enough for your support to make a difference. They are eco-friendly, and I love knowing that when Camille asks to wear some of my "lipstick", that the lip balm she's applying is totally safe for her.

As a reminder, with your first $20 order, you will also receive:

  • Mrs. Meyer's Spring Hand Soap (peony or lilac)
  • Mrs. Meyer's Spring Dish Soap (peony or lilac)
  • Grove Collaborative Glass Spray Bottle 
  • Grove Collaborative Walnut Scrubber Sponges 
  • Free Shipping & 60 Day VIP Trial

Existing customers can click here to add a glass spray bottle to your next shipment for 50% off.

Hey Charlotte ladies, mark your calendars!

On March 28 I will be at Swoozies near South Park Mall for a baby/toddler pop-up event representing The Tipsy Bunny! I will have all of the new Lilly Pulitzer style hairbows as well as a brand new batch of the felt Peeps and bunnies that my aunt makes. They always sell out!

May 9 is a VERY special fundraiser that I'm working on with my wonderful friends. I will be sharing more details soon, but it's ladies only and it is going to benefit a very special, very deserving military family. Tickets are inexpensive but limited. SO -- stay tuned for more details! I hope to meet a few of you there!

Ending with something fun today. You know your fun, wacky friend that has a birthday coming up? Or your off-the-wall mama that you want to celebrate in a creative way this Mothers Day? I cannot recommend Pinatagrams enough! I received my first one this week and was so shocked to open my mailbox and find an unwrapped PINATA inside. How crazy is that?!

You can find them on Instagram here and they have offered to give away THREE to my readers. To enter, just leave a comment below that contains your email address. You can say anything in your comment, but of course I'd love to hear who you'd send yours to. I'll announce the 3 winners Monday!


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

My girlie is home from college and I turned her toilet water green for when she gets up...LOL. She just said this week that used to freak her out, so I guess that makes me #momoftheyear for doing it to her on break. I just couldn't help myself.

  74. Oh I need to try the Dixie Vodka, I LOVE everything mint flavored! We had green spaghetti and only one of my three thought it was super cool and ate it. The other two asked for yogurt (rolls eyes).

    I'd love to win the pinatagram to send to my sister who joined the Air Force as a nurse. She's only been gone since early fall (currently at base in VA) but feels like forever as we are close to her. She loves happy mail and this would make her long night shift hours so much better!
