Five on Friday - Barbie Pink Apple Watch, Daisy Jones and the Six, Favorite Bracelets, and New Music

Hey y’all, happy Friday!  We’re wrapping up another week of summer break (seriously the shortest week in history), and today on the blog I’m sharing a few faves!

O N E – Barbie Pink Apple Watch Band

I wear my Apple Watch all day, every single day so I’m a big fan of changing out my bands to match my outfits and change up the look.  I recently came across this Barbie pink band and I had to have it because it’s just the perfect shade of pink for summer!  This same listing has 25 different color options, and all of them are so unique… lots of bright ones that are awesome for summer!  This band is a little longer than the standard Apple watch bands, and I have a really tiny wrist, so I was a little worried about it being uncomfortable, but fortunately, the longer band hasn’t bothered me one bit.  At only $5.99, it’s a total steal and one that I’ll wear forever!


T W O – Daisy Jones and the Six

I finished reading Daisy Jones and the Six this week, and after a very slow start, I ended up enjoying it!  The writing style took some getting used to (you’ll know exactly what I mean when you first start reading) and I think that’s what turned me off about it in the beginning.  It seemed much harder to get to know the characters that way.  However, once I got used to the writing style and got into the plot, it was smooth sailing, and I devoured the rest in just a couple of days.  I ended up loving the end, and the last sentence?  Fantastic.  I was giddy.  The hardcover is on super sale right now for just $8.93.


T H R E E – Bracelets

I’ve mentioned these bracelets a time or two on the blog already, but they have truly been the real MVP of summer jewelry!  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve reached for some combination of these five bracelets.  Sometimes I wear all five, sometimes just two or three, and sometimes just one combined with bracelets from other sets.  Since it comes with a pink, white, aqua, yellow, and multi, they go with just about everything in my closet.  They’re super lightweight and the gold discs in each bracelet add a little bit of shine to each one.  They’re only $8.99 for the stack of five, or for a dollar more, you can get a stack of seven that includes red and green.   


F O U R – Ed Sheeran’s New Single

I’ve been a huge Ed Sheeran fan since his first album came out back in 2011, and I’ve seen him in concert twice… I love him.  He’s been taking the last few years off to have a baby and enjoy his family, so I’ve been going through some serious withdrawals without new music.  He announced at the end of June that he was dropping a new single and I have been listening to it on repeat ever since.  It’s a bit different than his typical sound, but I love it, and our kids are obsessed with it, too.  I listened to his interview with Elvis Duran about the new album a couple of weeks ago and he has me all kinds of excited for it… now we just need a release date… and TOUR DATES!  EEK!  I can’t wait to see live music again!  There’s no better place on earth than to be right smack in the middle of a live show of one of your favorite bands/artists.



This picture of my girl and me showed up in my Timehop from five years ago, and it made me swoon.  She is so dang cute in those pearls I can’t even stand it.  I can’t believe this was five years ago… it truly feels like just yesterday.  Where oh where has the time gone?  


Friday Funnies


It's true

YES!  Whyyyy do they have to make these so flipping hard?!

THIS.  The flies have been awful this summer... we basically have one living in our house at all times now.


Lol.  Why does this hit way too close to home?

 Our Week - The One with Summertime, Week 7 (Swimming Lessons and Pedicures)

Happy Friday, y’all!

*Linking up with A Little Bit of Everything for Friday Favorites.


  1. Those bracelets are on my wishlist. But I always forget to wear bracelets!

  2. Those Memes crack me up! I love the bracelets. You can bet I’ll be listening to Ed Sheeran‘s new song today! Have a super sweet weekend!

  3. I thought Ed Sheran’s new song was ok. I would love to see him tour. I have seen those bracelets before and wanted them. That is the perfect watch and color. I love pink everything.

  4. I love Ed Sheeran, and I'm loving his new song. I haven't seen him live in YEARS (he was an opening act before his first album even came out) so it would be really awesome to finally see him perform live again.

    I really loved Daisy Jones and the Six - finally read it earlier this year.


    1. Oh that is awesome that you were able to see him before he was super famous! I started listening to him before anybody else I knew really knew who he was. It's so crazy how successful he's been! If you ever have the chance to go see him again, do it! The first time we saw him on his Divide tour, we were in the fourth row and it was one of the best concerts I've ever been to!

  5. I just added that pink watch band to my cart--can't beat the price and I love that hot pink shade!! And the flies have been terrible here, too! I feel like I am always yelling about closing the door quickly ha!

  6. That watch band is such a fun bright color for the summer! I usually don't love Ed, haha (I know, I know!)... but I must admit, his new single is super catchy. Hope you have a great weekend!

  7. That is such an adorable throwback photo! Funny enough we were all just talking about photos to prove we're not robots last night and how much we all overthink those boxes!

    1. Yes! I just don't understand why they have to make them so hard! Haha.

  8. That watch band is perfect and I would love those bracelets... so perfect for summer!! I haven’t heard Ed Sheehan’s new song but love him too!!

  9. That last funny is too dang true, haha! LOVE the pink watch band - it's just such a fun color. The OOTD picture with Olivia is so darn cute. How is that 5 years ago?! It does not seem possible.
