Five on a Friday 2.8.19

Happy Friday!! This week has been long, short, and stressful all at the same time. It’s what always happens when there is an event coming up!

Here’s my Five on a Friday!


I am headed to Lake Tahoe tomorrow morning and not gonna lie – I’m a little nervous about the weather! Check out the forecast. I leave Saturday morning and am there through Thursday. [Insert nail biting emoji here.]

Last year in Tahoe it was an upwards of 60 degrees when we were there! It was warmer than New York and this year it’s barely snowed here so I am so NOT PREPARED for this weather. Wish me luck!


Since I’m away next week, I am not going to be home until late on Valentine’s Day. I wanted to make sure Sadie got her Valentine’s goodies from Dave and I before she left for school which is our usual tradition, so I put it together and hid it in Dave’s closet for him to put out after she goes to sleep Wednesday.

I wish I would be home to see her face, but I’ll have to settle with hearing about it and her showing me when I get home.

She’s been BEGGING for that KleptoCats book since the beginning of the year when it was in the Scholastic book fair catalog but they ran out at the book fair. She’s also obsessed with Disney Doorables (anyone else’s kid?) and this little one was on clearance at Target – win! And we’re also BIG into Beanie Boos right now. She sleeps with all of them every night, but doesn’t really have a big one like this. Also on clearance – this time at TJMaxx!


Dave also decided that since I was away for Valentine’s Day that he would send me flowers ahead of time – so I got a delivery at work yesterday!!

Even sweeter was that he sent them not only for Valentine’s Day but wrote on the card that it was for OUR Valentine’s Day, which was a nod back to when we got engaged! Dave proposed a week before Valentine’s Day and the ruse was that we were celebrating Valentine’s Day a week early because he had to work on the holiday. I was tearing up reading the card!


Tonight is the Father-Daughter dance at Sadie’s school and she is SO excited. She helped Dave pick out his outfit, planned out her own, and made them practices a dance that involves a dip where Dave grabs her foot? (I don’t know lol)

I ordered her a little corsage from our local florist and she is going to freak I am so excited for Dave to give it to her.

Also, Sadie got a pink streak in her hair last weekend when we went to the salon for my haircut and color and now she thinks she’s the coolest person ever. All the girls at the salon kept calling her Barbie!


And in case you missed it, this week on the blog I discussed the books I read and my prime purchases in January!

    • Oh I didn’t even realize!! And it was quite a trip – driving up the mountain was so scary! Yes I’m here for work – we’re hosting an event here. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m basically a corporate event planner.

  3. 12 to 24 inches of snow!?! That’s quite a jump! (Not that 12 inches isn’t concerning on its own!) I would totally be freaking out too! Good luck! And those flowers are beautiful–what a sweet present for YOUR Valentine’s Day! ๐Ÿ™‚
