Five on Friday!

Happy Fri-Yay!! It’s finally almost the weeeeeeekeeeennd!! Woo! Anyone else as excited as I am?  I decided to link up with some new bloggers (new link up for me, not actually NEW bloggers!) to share five things on my mind this Friday!

Without further adieu…


We are getting a new couch!! Woo! We are so excited to get rid of our red sectional (well.. not quite get rid of.. more like put it in the unfinished basement :)) and i’m ready for a more neutral couch!  The hubs and I can’t decide which one of these two …

This is the hubs favorite.. I think it’s just too dark and would literally take up the WHOLE living area!

I’m more partial to this one because of the lighter color.. yes I know we have pups and yes I know we’ll have kids BUT I still like the lighter color!

Of course we just can’t decide which one!  I know you’re thinking… “Where are you looking at these couches?!” Haha! The top one is from HOM Furniture and the bottom is from none other than Costco!! What are your thoughts on the two couches?! Are you team me or team hubby?? I’m leaning towards the lighter colored couch and we can add some fun throw pillows for some color πŸ™‚ I’m just excited to get our carpets cleaned and some new furniture!!


The Minnesota State Fair starts next week and I’m so excited to have a day off to go!  The hubs and I planned to take a long weekend next weekend for a fun trip for his 30th birthday but it didn’t end up working out.  I kept Friday off but decided I should probably work the next Monday πŸ™‚

A few pictures from years past…

Chocolate covered bacon.. one of the hubs favorites!

Before my monogram purse fell in the toilet… #thatsanotherstory #gross

Pork chop on a stick.. yum!!

the in-laws have come the last few years to attend!

It’s always exciting to see the new foods they feature and love everything on a stick!! Wow I could do a whole blog post on this!! Moving on…


The Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale starts on Monday at 8 am!! I CANNOT wait! It’s always such a fun but stressful sale because so many people are on and things sell out within minutes!  To get all the details, click here!

I would wear Lilly everyday if I could!  I’m definitely hoping to pick up a few fun Christmas presents during the sale πŸ™‚


It’s already the middle of August and I can’t believe summer is already coming to an end!  I’m not ready for cooler weather.. I usually love all things fall.. umm hello Bath and Body Works candles?! Yum!! But i’m not ready for close toed shoes and socks 😦 Seriously.. my LEAST favorite part! #givemealltheflipflops #flipflopsforlife  I’m also not ready for jackets and coldness.. BUT boy, am I ready for Christmas?!

I know I jumped the gun a little bit on that but I really am looking forward to that part of the year πŸ™‚  Check back next week when I feature WHY Christmas is my favorite holiday πŸ™‚  If you want to link up and tell what your favorite holiday is and why, just let me know and I can set something up πŸ™‚


I’m teaming up with some fellow bloggers and giving away a $200 Nordstrom gift card to one lucky reader!! I’ll be posting the giveaway before it starts at 3:00 pm today and it’s really easy to enter.. literally just liking a few Instagram profiles/pictures! Nice and Easy!  And who wouldn’t want a gift card to Nordstrom??

Just a few of my favorite pieces from Nordstrom!  Be sure to check back here around 3 for the blog post to go live!  Or if you’re afraid you’ll miss it, you can subscribe to the blog and get an email directly to your inbox as soon as it gets posted!  Let me know if you have any questions!  What would you buy if you won the gift card?!

Update: the giveaway will actually start tomorrow! I had my days mixed up! Whoops!! Sorry! A new post will be out tomorrow!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
