Five on a Friday 3.8.19

Happy Friday!! I am FINALLY over my travel craziness in February! Woo hoo! Now to get my life and my house back in order. I HATE when my house is all chaotic – it just gives me so much anxiety and I feel so much better when its cleaner. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s my Five on a Friday!


Sadie lost her third tooth this week! She still hasn’t lost any of her top teeth, only bottom ones! This bottom one was wiggly for a while and I loosened it more the other night and then Dave pulled it Thursday morning!

The Tooth Fairy came last night – after we sprinkled Fairy Dust outside for her to know what house was ours and put Sadie’s tooth in her Tooth Fairy Pillow.

Per Sadie, the Tooth Fairy gives a gold coin for a tooth, but Dave also got $2 bills from the bank to give her. Well we couldn’t find where we hid them so I scrounged up a gold $1 coin, slapped some glitter on it and gave her a JoJo Siwa party braid too. I can’t wait for her two front teeth to come out so she’ll have a cute gap-tooth smile!


Las Vegas was such a fun trip! I had such a great time with my two girlfriends and it was a nice, relaxing weekend. The Gwen Stefani show was good, but I hate to say none of us were blown away. Seeing No Doubt in concert is WAY better.

We realized on this trip that we have been friends since my sophomore year of college and their freshman year – 17 years ago! How nuts is that! And I was their RA in our dorm for at least one year for each of them haha. (I was a GREAT RA!)


So random, but last week wrapped up a Box Tops for Education contest that I was running for the PTA at Sadie’s school. I have to admit I have an unhealthy obsession with Box Tops so I love running this committee! (#NERD)

If you don’t know about Box Tops (but you see them on the packaging of items you purchase) they are worth 10 cents each and schools collect them to get money for their needs! This year with two contests we ran, we raised over $900 for the school! (It doesn’t seem like much, but it was $900 the school didn’t have before.)

If you happen to have box tops floating around your house that you don’t use for your kids or kids you know I’d gladly take them! Just let me know and we’ll figure it out. You can see participating products here.


These two memes/funny pictures (I never know what to call them) literally had me laughing out loud when I saw them. For the first one, I don’t care if you’re political or not, or what your affiliation is, but this is FUNNY. #youcantsitwithus!

DYING. And this one is just amazing. Do you think they’d notice at work?


And in case you missed it, last week on the blog I shared my February reads and February Prime Purchases!

Happy Weekend!

Linking up with… High Five for FridayFriday Favorites & Friday Favorites.


  1. I love that twitter interaction! Box tops are such an easy way to help out your school, I don’t know why more people don’t do it! Also, I have never heard of the tooth fairy leaving glitter that is adorable!

    • Even when I didn’t have a child I still cut box tops and sent them to people who could use them! I love them haha. And yes the fairy dust is so cute! It came with her tooth pillow otherwise I’d have no idea!

  2. My kids lost their bottom teeth before the tops too. Toothless is such a cute look! We collect box tops here too. And yesterday I was cracking up that Trump called Tim Cook Tim Apple.

  3. We have a friend who LOVESSS Rummikub. I have only played it once but it was fun! ๐Ÿ™‚ The glitter for the tooth fairy is so fun, she is such a cutie!! ๐Ÿ™‚ XO – Alexandra

  4. I feel so uneasy when my house in disarray. What a fun girls trip! Glad you had a good time. I could imagine the energy level from seeing her in No Doubt before was probably different. That’s so great to have such last friendships! I hope you have a great weekend. Sierra ~

  5. That Hilary meme had me ROLLING!! So funny!

  6. OMG that Hillary Clinton clapback is THE BEST.

  7. That’s so awesome that you and your RA charges became such close friends! That did seem to happen with some people in undergrad, but I was never especially close with my RAs.
