Five on Friday - Girls Night, an Old Picture, Candy, and a Cute Dress

This week flew by.  I feel like we blinked and September came and went.  The weather here has been so freaking hot which has been frustrating, but I’ve been watching Gilmore Girls all week while I work so it has helped keep me in a fall mood… aaaand maybe even a Christmas mood, too, since I’m currently watching one of the Christmas episodes as I type.  I have to say I’m not mad about it.  ;o)

Now if we can just get the weather to cooperate!  We’ve had a bit of a reprieve for the last couple of days due to some rain that has been sweeping through, but unfortunately, the ridiculously hot temps will be back next week.  And the weather in the mountains isn’t looking much better for our trip either.  Apple-picking in the 80 degree temps, anyone?  Sigh.

Anyway, time to share some favorites from the week!

O N E – Girls Night

My girlfriends and I met up Monday night to celebrate two birthdays – one for April, and one for Katie – since they are both September babies.  The birthday girls chose Bonefish because it was Martini Monday and we spent the evening sipping on all the Pomegranate Martinis, eating all the delicious food, and chatting away.  We also had a chance to discuss Friendsgiving plans and I think we’re actually going to be able to make it work!  I’m SO excited, y’all!  Looks like I might get that check on the ol’ bucket list after all!

T W O – Comparison Pictures

Last weekend the kids were dressed in their Saturday best (AKA Georgia gear) for church, so I stopped them on the way in to take a picture because they looked so darn cute. 

Later that evening, when I was going through the pictures I realized that it looks a whole lot like this one from two years ago…

But where have my babies gone?!

Oh man, it broke my heart in two to see how drastically they’ve changed in such a short amount of time.  That picture from two years ago has been my wallpaper on my phone ever since I snapped it, so I’m thinking that now is the time to finally replace it.

T H R E E – Best Candy Ever

My favorite candy of all-time is Kit Kats and my favorite kind of chocolate of all-time is dark chocolate.  Put the two together and you have one of my favorite things EVARRRR.  I’m only ever able to find the dark chocolate Kit Kats around this time of year, and I usually have to buy a multi-pack with the regular Kit Kats and white chocolate Kit Kats that I don’t want, so I only get to have a few of the dark chocolate ones each year. 


Ask me how many bags I bought.

Go ahead, ask!


Face palm.

I cannot stop eating them.  But you can bet that I’m going to go buy some more to ensure that I have enough to last until next September when they put them out again.  Haha.

F O U R – This Dress

As you all know, Facebook and Instagram are always sliding little ads in between posts these days, and the other day an ad for Walmart fashion popped up in my feed.  This dress was the cover photo and it is so cute that I actually clicked over to check it out.  I need another dress like I need a hole in the head, so I didn’t buy one, but I sure do want to!  It’s only $15.98 and it comes in four different colors.  It would be cute with wedges during the hot months and it would be even cuter with booties and a long sweater cardigan during the cold months.  Walmart fashion is just killing it, y’all!  (And apparently so are the marketing people for Facebook and Instagram.  #clickbait)

F I V E – Planner Review

Did you catch my review of my new Simplified Planner earlier this week?  It might just be my favorite planner ever, so if you’re looking for one for 2019, head over to the post to check it out!  You better hurry, though, because once they are all sold out, they will be gone as the company doesn’t restock. 

I cannot wait to start using mine in 2019 and I’m planning on doing an entire post on how I use it.  I’ve been asked repeatedly to do a post about how I use my planner, but I’ve never been able to find a planner that I love enough to feel comfortable sharing.  Since I’ve finally found THE ONE, I will hopefully be able to crank out a post early next year.

Happy Friday, y’all!

  3. You've has such a sweet week especially what those dark chocolate kit kats...YUM!!! Oh how the sweet precious babes have darling. Happy weekend pretty girl!

  4. Bonefish is the perfect girls night place - I love their bang bang shrimp but we dont have one here! I love your planner - I wish I was more organized like that! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  5. I just wish our wal-mart wasn;t in the scariest part of town or I might go. That dress is adorable.

  6. I just went to Bonefish with my bestie the other night, her treat :) It was so yummy. That dress is so cute, you need to share a pic when you get it :)

  7. I love dark chocolate anything and I love the mint kit-kats that are only out at Christmas. Now I need to get these ones. I am definitely picking up a bag or two this weekend. Love that dress and for only $15. I definitely will look into it. I can't believe how much your babies changed. So cute though. Have a great weekend!

  8. What a cute old picture! I don't like dark chocolate but I do like white chocolate! I'm looking for some dresses for Gabbie so I searched on walmart and found a few for less than $20. I didn't order yet but it seems like they have some good options!

  9. Your kids are so stinking adorable! That dress is super cute too.

  10. Such cuties! I was just looking at pictures of Henry on his first day of Kindergarten. There I was thinking he was all grown up looking. Now, two years later, I look back and he was so itty bitty with a chubby little baby face. Oh my heart. Mommin' ain't easy. Your love for those dark chocolate Kit Kats is like my love for 100 Grand! Soooo good! I don't think I've had those dark chocolate Kit Kats...I'll most definitely try them out! Emily Ley does have amazing planners. I ended up buying a super cheap planner from the grocery store since I needed something for this fall, but guuuuurl, you're convincing me to go back to Emily Ley. It'd be nice to have a pretty planner for the year!

  11. What a fun girls night! And why oh why do our babies have to grow up so fast? It's so bittersweet! I'm going to check out that dress now. Our Walmart just got, well is currently getting a face lift and they just finished our ladies clothing section. I'm SO impressed!
