Five on Friday - Favorites

Guys, this week (and month) are kicking my hiney, so I’ve got a very brief Five… or Seven on Friday for you today!

O N E – New Bar Cart

I finally found a new bar cart!  I’m currently working to style it, so I posted a few of my favorite decorations and practical items for a bar cart here.  SO many cute things to choose from!  Here are a few items I already have:

And here are some that I love:

You can see the full post and where to buy all of the items here.

T W O – This Hat

My hat came in the mail this week and it is definitely worth mentioning because the quality is great and it is even cuter in person than it is online.  I’m sometimes wary about purchasing stuff like this online because you just never know how the quality will be, but this one is great and it comes in many, many other phrases!

T H R E E – Some Amazing Knockoffs

I have been in search of the perfect denim shorts for about three years now.  I have always adored these and these, but just can’t justify spending that kind of money for some jorts... I mean, honestly!  So imagine my delight when I came across these knockoffs!  They are excellent quality, they have the perfect amount of stretch, and they fit like a dream!  These have already been on repeat for the last two weeks!

F O U R – Twinkle Lights

We are still enjoying dinners on the back porch and we will continue to do so as long as the weather stays mild.  My very favorite thing about eating out there is being surrounded by our twinkle lights!  I have had several people ask where we got ours so I thought I would mention them here on the blog.  Our exact lights are here and they are so much cheaper now than they were when we got ours!

F I V E – Laying out in the Back Yard

Lately on Saturday afternoon I have been using Olivia’s nap time and Jacob’s quiet time to have a little bit of QT of my own… in the back yard in a swim suit with a good book.  It’s so relaxing!

S I X – Parents’ Breakfast and My Baby Graduated!!

You can read the full post about the graduation here, but I also wanted to post a pic from our parents’ breakfast last week.  Such a fun way to end the school year!

S E V E N – Mother’s Day Flowers        

My flowers that B gave me for Mother’s Day a couple of weeks ago were gorgeous for such a long time!  I finally had to chunk them this morning, but for a while there I thought they were going to last forever!

Finally, I am so excited to announce that my friend Erica over at Whimsical September is featuring Lindsay’s Sweet World tomorrow for her Saturday Sit Down series.  Be sure to pop over to her blog tomorrow to see the interview with yours truly!

Have a great weekend, y’all!

  10. Sorry your week was hectic! Love that hat, what a cute find! Excited to read your feature tomorrow. Hope you have a great weekend!

  11. So many good things here. Love jorts, but I have a hard time finding good ones too. I did get a pair of Joe's at Nordstrom Rack that I love, but I am always in the market for new ones. I can't wait to see your bar cart styled. Have a great weekend.

  12. Congrats on your feature, that is so awesome lady. You have been working so hard, proud of you! Also the twinkle lights and outside relaxing looks LOVELY! That swimsuit and hat are so cute...your beach trip is coming up so soon. Yippee! xoxo ERIN

  15. Just ordered that hat using your link! I'd be looking for one, and that one is perfect! Thank you SO MUCH for sharing! So excited to see your pretty face on my blog tomorrow! xoxox

  16. Your bar cart...goals man! Where are you going to keep it in your house? Those shorts are prefect and for that price?! I think I need a pair too!

  17. I need to put my patio on my to-do list this summer. Your twinkle lights are so great, and they'd be perfect by my pool! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  18. I am lovely being able to layout and read in the yard.

  19. Mary Kay Andrews is one of my favorite authors - ha that's what I noticed with your relaxation photo!

    1. Haha. I have actually not read anything by her until now! I just started this book about a week ago and I'm LOVING it!

  20. I ordered that hat, too! It's currently in the back of my car headed to the beach!
    Love those twinkle lights.

  21. Glad to hear that hat was good cute! I was kicking myself for not grabbing a new hat before our getaway. Seeing your flowers...ick...I'm just realizing I probably should have tossed mine before we left for the weekend. Hope you are enjoying some fun with your crew.

  22. I used to lay out in the back yard all the live long day. Now that we live at the pool all summer, I don't do it as much. Which reminds me, I REALLY have been meaning to pick up a floppy hat!

  23. I used to lay out in our backyard at our old house, but now that we are in the city limits and we are usually at the pool I don't as much. I do go out in the sprinkler with the kids or get good sun while doing outside work. Wahoo! :) Yay for all the things you have to celebrate.

  24. Your hat is so cute! I was thinking about getting a stitched one like that. We're also looking for some outdoor lighting so I'll tell Eric to check these out. Beautifully Candid
