Happy Friday lovelies!  Linking up for Five on Friday with Darci, Christina, Liz, and Natasha.


1.  Strawberry Picking – Ella and I had a playdate last week to pick strawberries with friends.  It was our first time to the berry farm and we had a lot of fun.  We’ll be back in a couple of weeks when the blueberries are ready.

2.  Family Video Shoot – The amazing Lindsey of Lenae Photography captured our family video portrait last week.


3.  Fruit & Coconut Water Popsicles – We are going to try our hand at making these amazing fruit & coconut water popsicles.  Don’t they look delicious and healthy?


4.  Screen Saver –  Last week I posted this on my Instagram as a reminder to pack in as much fun as we can into these long summer days.  I added it as my phone’s lock screen as well to help me be present.

5.  Speaking of Summer Fun – My hubby surprised the kids with this fun water slide.  It is all that they’ve wanted to do when at home.

Happy Friday friends!  Linking up for Five on Friday with Darci, Christina, Liz, and Natasha.

THE GOOD LIFE BLOG01.  Hudson & Ella’s last day of school was yesterday.  They came home to these fun welcome to summer bucket full of goodies.  Head over to snag the printable sticker & banner.


02.  We have been busy getting our vegetable garden together and planting some hydrangeas.  Needless to say there have been several trips to Lowes.  I nearly fell over when I saw this wooden box filled with perfectly arranged succulents.  It had to come home with me!

03.  I am craving some of my favorite summer foods which include lots of fresh fruits and veggies.  This salad is right up my alley:


04.  I have always been a fan of The Nester and recently received a copy of her book.  Dying over it and all of the pretty pictures of her home.  Read it if you get the chance!

05.  I am loving the look of denim shorts, a white tee, and a kimono.  Need a kimono in my life pronto.  Which one do you like better this one or this one?


Have a great weekend!


It’s been awhile since I’ve linked up with my friends for a Five on Friday post.


1.  Child size mason jar tumblers – I am in love with the 16oz Aladdin mason jar tumblers.  They make the perfect cups for my littles.  I snagged the clear, pink, and aqua ones for my fam.

2.  Boyfriend Jeans & Shorts – I’ll admit it takes me awhile to finally succumb to a jean trend.  I mean…I was ANTI skinny jeans for so long.  So, here I am finally jumping on the boyfriend & distressed jean trend.  Here are some I have or have my eye on:

3.  Ready for Easter – I have finished up the kid’s Easter baskets, stuffed eggs, and grocery shopped for our family’s Easter brunch.  We are all set for the holiday weekend!

4.  Spring/Summer Hair Color – I lightened up my locks to more of a subtle caramel ombre.  And think the closer we get to summer I’ll have my sister/stylist lighten it like the bottom picture.

5.  Homekeeping Binder – I’ve always used a mixture of digital and paper calendars and agendas.  But, after a suggestion from the Hands Free Mama book to make the switch to paper to avoid constantly looking to your phone I am going for it.  My homekeeping binder (which I’ve shared my free printables you here, here, and here) are helping me out:

For this edition of Five on Friday I’m sharing some of my favorite Christmas finds:

01.  Baked for Santa cookie stamp – I think these cookies are just darling.  And that I need one of these stamps in my life, pronto.

02.  Galvanized Christmas Tree Collar – I fell in love with this Christmas tree collar when I spied it in the Crate and Barrel catalog.  Wouldn’t it just go perfectly in my house?

03.  Cranberry & Rosemary Sangria – How delicious does this recipe look?

04.  Christmas Pajamas – Nothing is better than my kids in holiday themed jammies.  I just love it.

Have a great weekend!
