Five On Friday, Heyyyy Y'all!

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. :)

Snooooooow all over Charlotte, you guys! Real, sleddable snow.

Day 1 my girls were totally unsure of it, and my double-black-diamond loving hubby was like WUT. We needs to get these girls acclimated to some SNOW.

But by day 2 they were having a lot more fun, Camille at least, and Char (who is still not walking solo yet) was happiest standing in place near mama or sitting in my lap watching the big kids sled down the hill.

A girlfriend of mine (heyyyy Addie!) recommended this heating massage pillow the other day and I've got it en route to our house. Her husband bought it for her and she said it's the kind of thing she'd never buy herself but is SO happy she owns.

Sold. The one below is black but the one linked above -- that comes in slate gray, brown, champagne and pink with a softer cover -- is same-day shipping to Charlotte which is pretty awesome. So that's the one I just bought five minutes ago -- in champagne, naturally.

(I get yucky back pain with pregnancies, especially these last two, so hopefully this will be a huge help.)

Random $3.99 Homegoods find! I found these watermelon-flavored water "juice boxes" at the ol' HG the other day and we decided to bring them home. The girls didn't slurp them down as fast as they'll take down the Mott's low sugar apple juice boxes, but I'm hoping they will develop a taste for them. I think especially on a warmer day at the park with a picnic lunch, it'll hit the spot.

I finally purchased a cute new iPhone case! I kept looking around for an inexpensive one at Marshalls and Homegoods and finally decided to get the one I just ... wanted. Last Friday night at Nordstrom I pulled the trigger and bought this gorgeous tortoise case, spending more than I would have liked, but I just love the classic tortoiseshell look. #worthit #noregrets

This weekend's operation: CLOSET ORGANIZATION. 

Months back I shot a series of embarrassing Instastories showing the true state of my walk-in-closet. I think closets are like purses; the bigger they are, the more glamorous they seem, but the more STUFF you end up STUFFING in them. 

Well, I cleaned up my closet, and it's back to disaster zone status, holding avalanching piles of folded clean clothes and jewelry from high school and old magazines. Unless someone advises me otherwise, I'm ordering THIS pack of 12 clear boxes to put shoes I rarely wear in so they can come off of my floor and go up on a shelf. I mean, my wedding high heels are seriously laying on my floor as we speak -- no bueno. Seriously, if you have a better shoe storage solution, let me know fast before I order these!

  1. Oh man, I so need to get those storage boxes for our closet (and the boys' closets). Y'all are so cute in your snow day pictures; I'm so jealous that we haven't gotten ANY snow in a long time. I got horrible back pain with Knox, too, and slept with a heating pad every night so that pillow thingy is awesome! Happy Friday! :)

  2. Yes - get the storage boxes! Check out The Home Edit on Instagram. They make closets look incredible with lots of plastic shoe boxes.

  3. I use those boxes for shoes! I think they're a $1 each at Walmart

  4. The same storage boxes are sold individually at Target, usually for less than a dollar which would be about half of the amazon listing! They carry a larger size too. I just bought a ton of each size so I had them when organizing and returned what I didn’t use.

  5. I love organizing, especially closets, and find that pregnancy is the best time to do it. Hello nesting! I pull everything out of my closet and only put back in stuff I can wear pregnant from beginning to end (non-maternity and maternity). I realize I enjoy the simplicity of having less options. I split the rest into spring/summer, fall/winter and year round pieces (light sweaters, favorite jeans, basic Ts). I go through each group and sort out items to get rid of. Then I box up what’s left in big clear storage containers split into my 3 categories and labeled. Usually my year round pieces box is small since I can wear my sweaters pregnant. Also, in the box I’ll pull out post-baby (for you summer) put nursing friendly tops and forgiving shorts toward the top of your box. Then you’ll know what you need more of post-baby and it will be easy to access when it’s time to pull the box down. I then store my newly organized boxes in storage or in my master closet if there is room. I don’t hang anything up I can’t wear, I prefer the empty space vs. sorting through and not being able to wear. Also, use this closet overhaul time to pair down shoes, bags, accessories. For storage I like the clear 3 drawer boxes for things like flats or flip flops, yoga pants, workout tops and foldable things like sweaters that get stretched out. Use the individual boxes you have above for nicer shoes. I’ll try to post a link. Then label each drawer with what’s inside. Good luck!

  6. Thank you for the massage pillow recommendation! I struggle with a lot of back pain due to scoliosis, so am hoping this can help me take longer breaks between steroid injections!

  7. My in-laws have that back massager and I borrowed it and used it my entire pregnancy! I had the WORST back pain and it helped so much!!!

  8. I just organized our playroom closet and Target has that same size container on sale for .84/each!!! I haven't been back in 4 days, so hopefully it's still on!

  10. I'm so glad you are excited about the massage pillow--love mine!!! I wish I had the softer cover--that's awesome! The snow day pics are precious--I hope you all enjoyed and have a fun weekend as well!

  11. I just bought shoe boxes similar to those a few months ago at bed bath and beyond and it's help so much! I say go for it. I like the container store ones but the price was just too much for shoe storage boxes. All the closets in my house need help right now! So much stuff stuffed in them, it's bad. So happy you all have gotten to enjoy the snow!

  12. You won’t regret your Sonix case! I had one on my last phone and it held up through everrrrything. Glad you’re enjoying the snow!

  13. I use similar boxes for shoes that go on shelves. Glad ya'll are enjoying the snow.

  14. I feel so blessed again in my marriage after Doctor ODUMODU brought back my husband that separated with me for one good year. Am ALENNA by name from ROMANIA. Even though i have mouths all over my body, it won't be enough to thank Doctor ODUMODU for his help upon my life. My husband separated with me for one year and have been in pains and agony without him. So, i searched for help everywhere but nothing worked out not until i meant Doctor ODUMODU. I explained my situation to him and he promised that my husband will get back to me within 48 hours as far that my heart still beats for him. I believed in him and he prepared a spell for me and my husband called me exactly when Doctor ODUMODU said. He pleaded and said he needs me back and now we are living happily again for the past 9 months. Everyone out there reading my article that needs help should contact him...Email:drodumodusolutions@gmail.com

  16. My closet is a constant cycle of organization followed by disarray within a week. It's ridiculous!
