Five On Friday ... Come To Mama

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. :)

Hi y'all and happy Friday!

Yesterday's post-nap activity was so cute and fun. We set up the little childrens' table on the screened porch with some coloring pages (taped down with washi tape, easiest coloring hack ever) and snacks. I was halfway petrified Charlotte would fall right off of the chair, but I need to let her be a big girl more and ... hover less. :) They had a great time, and this is special because my sisters and I used to do the same thing.

Alexa is IN THE BUILDING! We ordered the Amazon Echo (half price!) during this week's Prime Day and ... I'm sitting here right now sipping coffee and listening to "Paradise" by Coldplay simply because I said "Alexa play Coldplay." And that was after she gave me today's weather. I have a feeling we will be getting along nicely!

Well the Nordstrom sale hit big yesterday, and as much as I wanted to steer clear, I am a sucker for saving a dime or two. I am not a cardholder and really don't have the urge to be one, I just have to hope that what I want is left when the sale opens to everyone on the 21st.

Yesterday morning I took a screenshot of six items I wanted to try on, walked into the store, found an associate and asked her to point me in the right direction. I tried on what was available so that I know my exact sizing and can order online with curbside pickup when the sale is live to me.

My unexpected favorite ended up being this Mixed Media top. It's big and shapeless but looks cute with skinny jeans. This will be on my must-have list on the 21st. 

Mixed Media Swing Top $45.90

If the Nordstrom sale isn't your jam but you do like the adorned sweatshirt trend like above, here's a fun round-up of what's currently on Thred Up ... the #1 way I'm buying clothes these days.

Scared about items not fitting? You send it back (prepaid envelope) for store credit ... easy peasy. I've done it before with a dress that was too short.

New customer with Thred Up? Here's a referral link from me that will take $10 off your purchase!


Friday vibes I hope you have a replacing and restful weekend! repost from my girl @jasminehemsley  But really as a business owner are you ever "out"/finished on Friday? #workontheweekends...


That's it for today! Hope you have a lovely weekend -- thanks for linking up with us below!


  1. I'm steering clear of the sales for sure. I deemed this a no spend month yet today I'm taking my children to get new sneakers because OOPS football and cheer are two weeks away. Sweet little memories on the screened in porch - I have loads of those myself! xo

  2. We love our Echo Dot! I gave it to my husband for father's day and I think my girls use it more than we do! hahaha! I love your Nordstroms pick - super cute.

  3. I ordered the mixed media top! So happy to hear your endorsement. I only have the Nordstrom card that's attached to my debit, but love the early access and earning points, without the extra credit card.

  4. My Alexa/Echo is sitting at home waiting for me to set her up tonight. So excited! And you should look into the Nordstrom Debit card--it's linked to your bank account, so not a credit card! I did some damage yesterday and already have a couple more things in my cart today. OOPS! Have a great weekend!

  5. OMG do you have a pink letter board?? That photo is adorbs. We love our Echo! Ask Alexa to play Jeopardy and also 20 Questions ;)

  6. I love all of those gray shirts! I gravitate towards grey these days. It's such a calming neutral color!

  7. That black and white off the shoulder top is GORG!! I need that!

  8. ok you have me sorta interested in alexa! sounds fun ;) xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  9. We love our Echo...just wish we had bought it at half-price! Have a great weekend!

  10. I love the pic of the girls sitting on the porch coloring. My sister and I did the same thing as well. :)

  11. 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 ...
