Five on a Friday 6.16.17

Happy Friday! I finally have a teeny, tiny break before traveling again so hopefully, I can start posting more regularly again! So to start, I’m sharing some of my Friday Favorites! ๐Ÿ™‚


I just received this dress yesterday that I ordered from Amazon and I am in LOVE. I will post photos with me actually wearing it, but OMG guys it’s so comfortable, it has POCKETS and its the perfect length (I’m 5’2).

If you’re on Facebook and not part of the Name Brands for Less group, join now! I have ordered such great stuff from this group and some are Stitch Fix brands for less. And on Amazon! With Prime shipping! ๐Ÿ™‚ (I love me some Amazon Prime!)


I am love, love, loving summer so far. We’ve been spending a lot of time outdoors and our garden is starting to produce! We’ve been picking strawberries and pineberries (also known as hulaberries) every day!

Did you know that today is National Cannoli Day? (Every day is SOMETHING, isn’t it?) I just discovered that a cannoli place opened us near our house and Dave is OBSESSED with cannolis. I know where we’ll be going tonight! ย Mmmm cannolis.

Dave and I are talking to some contractors about work on our house – I am SO excited. There are some things I wish we could do that we just can’t (RIP open floor plan 1st floor) but for the things we can do, it’s going to give us more space and be awesome!

I feel like we’ve finally hit the point where we CAN make these improvements to our home without it being a drain on us. Also YAY for no more daycare payments!!! That totally added more $$ into our pockets. That shizz was EXPENSIVE people!!


Have you watched the new season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt? OMG Dave and I peed ourselves laughing. It was a really good season and I love all the characters. #idontkerr. We are so behind on all the shows we want to watch though! Right now we’re in the middle of Better Call Saul, ย we need to watch the new House of Cards, we want to start American Gods and there’s at least five more I’m forgetting. I also just realized So You Think You Can Dance started up again! Woo! I’m ambivalent about Vanessa Hudgens being a judge, but I am so glad Mary Murphy is back, that crazy lady.

  4. That cannoli sort of looks like poop in a taco (sorry!).

    I can’t wait for daycare payments to be DONE. My husband and I joke that we will feel like we have won the lottery!
