It's Friday, Y'all

It's my first Friday linking up in awhile and this is a very random (catch up) post!

My hubs was off the week after Christmas and made sure to soak up lots of quality time with the kids.  So once the Christmas tree left the house, he pulled out our bounce house. He bought it last Winter thinking the kids would love it but my son ended up being terrified of it and literally screamed the entire time it was on. Needless to say, it's been sitting in the closet since last year. He thought we should give it a try again this year and thankfully my son loves it!! It was sort of a big purchase, so we were pretty bummed when we didn't think it was going to get used. Talk about a great form of entertainment. The first day the kids played in it!! If you have the space, I highly recommend something similar to this. I'm actually kinda bummed ours is limited to kids b/c I sure would enjoy jumping in it myself.

I'm not sure where my hubs got ours last year, but here is a similar one.


Last week we were on the hunt for a king size mattress for our master. We took the kids with us hoping for the best and it turned out to be fun for all! lol! But seriously, Cate got it in her mind that she would "keep up with William" by wrapping her purse strap around his neck. He's so patient and tolerant of her. Before going down a certain aisle, he would literally stop and wait for her to "leash" him before walking. They were cracking me up!


We had a much overdue date night last weekend. And I got to wear my new blouse that I blogged about earlier this week. I just love it so much!! And you can't beat the price!

Love my "newly" bearded man!


After our two week break, school started back on Monday. This meant early alarms, packed lunches, extracurricular activities, and tired kiddos.  It also meant one sad little fella who lost his playmate. I just love the pic below but it also makes me sad. I love the way my daughter looks so sincere with her hand on his back, but it makes me sad to see my son with his head down. He definitely had an adjustment period the first few days. They played so well together over the break.


Y'all, I made sure to take advantage of the Lilly Sale on Monday and snagged an Elsa Top and 2 dresses. I had always read about how much Ashley from Sweet Southern Prep loved the Elsa top but I had never purchased one, until now! It arrived on Wednesday (talk about quick service) and I immediately tried it on. Oh my heavens! I can see why she loves them so much. It was AHHMMAAZZING! I love it so much and am upset that didn't order more. I will definitely be adding more of these tops to my wardrobe in the near future! ;)

Some of them are still on sale on Amazon, and 6pm, and I highly recommend them!!

So that's all for now!

And don't forget to check out the awesome hostesses of the link up; Darci, Liz, Natasha, and Christina.

    1. Thanks, girl! I seriously haven't found a print I don't love! lol!

  3. We too would love to find a king size mattress at some point! And I love the Lilly finds!

    I'm hosting The Pick, a year-long link-up every Friday for sharing your favorite post from the week, and would love to have you join! It's a way to meet new bloggers and build your blogging community!

    1. Thanks Astleigh!! I remember reading about it and then I think I forgot! I will definitely link up soon! Thanks for asking! :)

  4. Love your Lily finds. I've heard that she is going to have some stuff in target too. I'm excited! Love her prints!

    1. Thanks!! And I know... i can't evne wait for the Target Collab!! SO exciting!!

  5. I LOVE the Elsa top you ordered! That print is one of my faves! I ordered one dress from a Lilly via site and it came in today, but is sadly just a little too snug. It was final sale, though, so I'm hoping I can stretch the cotton a little bit to make it work, because I love it!
