Five on Friday: Hello April

Friday, April 6, 2018

It's been a long time since I've been so happy to see Friday. The past couple weeks have kicked my butt and I'm looking forward to recharging with friends and family (and maybe a little bit by myself ;)) this weekend. What are your plans? Tomorrow is one of my dearest friend's baby shower (hi Daniela!) -- she's expecting twin girls. So exciting! I'm going to try to sneak in Hadley's dance class in the morning before I leave somehow, and then friends of mine are grabbing drinks Saturday evening. Sunday will be for cleaning, playing, and groceries. 

I'm excited to hop into the first Five on Friday of April: 

1. Baby windbreaker. I've gotten a few questions (doesn't "gotten" feel like it can't possibly be a word?) about Hadley's new spring windbreaker and it's from H&M! You can find it here, if you're interested.

2. Workout playlist. We recently bought a second-hand treadmill from Facebook marketplace and Steve and I have been using it pretty regularly. What are your favorite songs to workout to? My playlist needs a little help. Right now it consists of:

The Middle - Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey
Silence - Marshmello feat. Khalid
Everyday - Ariana Grande feat. Future
Closer - The Chainsmokers feat. Halsey
Hey Brother - Avicii
Bad at Love - Halsey
Wolves - Selena Gomez & Marshmello

I love me some Halsey but I'd be grateful for any suggestions!  

3. Halo Top. I know Halo Top gets mixed reviews, but I think if you like frozen yogurt (which I actually prefer to ice cream) then you can't go wrong with some Halo Top. My  Target recently started stocking some new flavors and FRIENDS. You need to try the candy bar flavor. It has little bits of peanuts in it, some caramel, some fudge. It is so good and so satisfying. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

4. A summer hat. I found this at Target in the "dollar spot" for $5 -- can someone please get it? I carried it around Target debating but I just can't justify it. They had a few sayings but I loved the "do not disturb" the best. ;)

5. The dress with the cult following (for 40% off). Have you heard about the Leith Ruched dress from Nordstrom? It comes in a sleeveless and sleeved version and I've had my eye on it for forever because I've heard nothing but great things (it has more than 1,550 positive reviews!) and it seems like it would be so versatile... but the usual $56 price tag is more than I'd like. SO the other day I was stalking it, like usual, when I noticed the heathered coral color was on sale for 40% off and they had my size in stock! Don't you love when that happens? Here's the link to it if you've had your eye on it, too. Right now XL and XXL is in stock but if you need a different size, keep checking back. You might luck out!

Wishing you a happy weekend! XO


  1. I could totally use one of those hats for my Mexico trip. I need to go to Target for sunscreen and other travel essentials, so I will look for those hats. I love that dress. I have been eyeing it for awhile too. Loving Hadley's wind breaker. Have a great weekend!

    1. Oooh, I really hope you get it! A Mexico trip is the PERFECT excuse. :) Sad news about the dress - I tried it on tonight and it definitely runs small. So if you order it, order one size up! Have a good weekend, xo

  2. That's a great deal on the dollar spot hat! I'm sadly staying away from target currently so I don't spend money! lol Also, I don't like Halo Top, but I've only tried the almond flavor, the candy bar flavor sounds a lot better! Happy Weekend! :)

    1. Right?! $5 for a hat... I was impressed with myself for resisting! Haha! I'm so with you about Target. Definitely give the Candy Bar flavor a try. I loved it. Hope you had a great weekend! :)
