Five on Friday

Friday, May 4, 2018

Happy Friday! 

What are your weekend plans? Tomorrow I'm headed to a sprinkle for my friend who is expecting twins in a couple of months! Sunday I'm hoping to catch up on house/yard stuff and we might take the girls to a local restaurant that teaches kids country line dancing. ;) Should be interesting and fun!

1. My new favorite makeup product. I ordered this under eye concealer/illuminator when it was on sale a few weeks ago and after regular use I can tell you that I love it. I had been completely out of concealer for a couple of weeks and the under eye circle game was strong. A few people have actually commented on my skin since I started using it... it just makes me look so much more refreshed than I actually am! Haha

2. Advice that really hit home with me. I recently read this post on one of my very favorite blogs, Cup of Jo, and it really resonated with me and the season of life that I'm in with the girls. After a trying few weeks with Carrie (just typical four year old troubles, but challenging nevertheless!), we seem to be on the upswing, but I realized a lot about myself and my parenting during those weeks. I plan to do a whole post on it, actually, because I know so many mommas (and dads) in the same season. But if you're looking for a little parenting inspiration, check out the post.

3. A new book. I can't remember the last time I read a book the entire way through. Isn't that the saddest? I mean, I read Emily Ley's A Simplified Life after Christmas but that's more of a quick read/workbook. I haven't been engulfed in a good story in a long time. So the other night at Target I picked up The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware and I can't wait to start reading it tonight. I know a lot of people who have read this one -- have you? If so, did you enjoy it? Any other book recommendations?

4. Pretty signs. I just discovered this company that makes amazing, personalized wood (and some other materials, like metal and chalkboard too) signs called Sincere Surroundings. I bought a sign from a local shop but loved browsing their online catalog. Check it out here. I need the no soliciting sign on page 34. ;) 

5. Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I love that under eye concealer. Definitely helps. It Cosmetics are just amazing. I haven't read The woman in cabin 10, but i heard good things about it. I just looked at another one of her books today and might download that one next.

    1. Yes! I'm so impressed with the concealer. I've heard a lot about In a Dark, Dark Wood so if I like this one I think that book will be next on my list!
