Five on Friday - A Dress, Nashville, and a Day Off ALONE

*This post may contain affiliate links.

Happy Friday!  We have had a crazy busy week so I’m here today with a short but sweet five for you today!

O N E – This Dress

So if you haven’t heard, Amazon has really upped their fashion game.  I ordered this dress with the hopes of wearing it for Thanksgiving this year, and I LOVE IT.  The best part?  It’s only $14.99.  Yep, you read that right.  $14.99.  The only thing I didn’t like was that it’s not lined, so it’s only one layer of fabric but it’s not the least bit see-through so there’s no reason to wear anything under it.  Stay tuned because I will hopefully be modeling it soon!  I can’t wait to style it!  And it also comes in blue and white or purple and white.

T W O – Nashville Recapping

Did you catch my posts about our Nashville trip earlier this week?  We had THE BEST time and I’ve also had the best time reliving it through my pictures.  Trip by the Numbers is here, part one is here and part two is here.  And if there’s any takeaway from any of the posts it’s this – GO SEE ED SHEERAN LIVE!!!!  AND GO TO NASHVILLE!

T H R E E – A Favorite Larabar

I know I have already posted about these once before, but it’s worth mentioning again since I have officially found my favorite flavor.  I think I’ve tried pretty much all of them now, but none of them compare to the Banana Chocolate Chip.  It tastes exactly like chocolate chip banana bread.  So so good.  Honorable mention?  Mint Chip Brownie.

F O U R – A Day Off For Just Me

Monday I was off for Columbus Day but everyone else had to go to work and school so I had the entire house to myself from 8 AM to 5 PM AND IT WAS GLORIOUS!  I had originally intended to use the day to do some fun things for myself and catch up on some projects, but since it happened to fall the day after we got home from a trip and just before we had to leave again for a trip, I spent the day doing laundry, unpacking, repacking, and sorting through pictures from the trip.  It was kind of a bummer that I had to spend it doing chores, but I did treat myself to a Salted Caramel Mocha and… Christmas music while I worked!  Yes, I’m serious.  The day was rainy and dreary and I couldn’t think of a better thing to listen to!

F I V E – Another Short Work Week & MOUNTAINS!

I only ended up working two days this week since we were closed for Columbus Day and we left for the mountains yesterday.  Our house sitter is at home with Maui (poor girl is so sad because we left her again) and we are gallivanting through the apple orchards and sipping on wine at the wineries this weekend!  Definitely a favorite for the week!  I’ll have the recap up next week, but in the meantime you can following along with us in the mountains on Insta Stories!

Happy long weekend to me yet again!

  10. Happy long weekend (again)! Love that you listened to Christmas music on your day off. You're inspiring me to do the same. :D

  11. That mountain view!! Oh my goodness. And I almost turned Christmas music the other day, now I wish I did!

  13. Oh I'm definitely checking out that dress! I'm listening to Ed Sheeran as I type. :) Have so much fun this weekend!

  14. Amazon has so many fun clothes options but it's easy to get distracted by bad reviews. It's fun to hear that you like this one!

  15. It looked like such a fun weekend from your instal-stories. So how do you go about shopping for clothes on Amazon. Are you searching specific things or brands? Curious!

  16. That dress is going to look so cute on you! Nashville...Oh I love you so! It's been so long since I have been there. And Nathan has never been. We need to change that!
