Five on Friday

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!


  • Elise @ Cheers Yall - I’ve been crushing on kimonos as of late too. I see your problem…they’re both so cute. I like how the first one looks with the lighter jorts and how the second one looks with the darker jorts. So maybe think about what color you will most wear it with?! xx

  • Jessi Otey - Ok I definitely vote for the kimono you have pictures! Something about the softer colors I like and might have to get myself! Great look! Thanks for sharing that salad too- just printed it out to take home! haha Have a great weekend! xoxo

  • Cat @ MaryMarthaMama - That succulent planter is gorgeous! And I am going to pin that salad so that I remember to try it. Have a great weekend!

  • Biana Perez - Loving the greek salad – i’m a huge fan of chickpeas and this one looks so good!! The kimono looks is so fresh!! Stopping by from the link up and hope you have a great weekend!

  • erin - that bucket of goodies is SO CUTE!! and i love the succulent planter. I’m totes stealing that idea for our outdoor table. its perfection!! so is that kimono. i never thought id NEED a kimono in my life– but you just might have turned me into a believer.

  • Leslie Lukens Martin - L.O.V.E. that box of succulents! I must find something like that for our house! P.S. I had no idea what a succulent was before planning out wedding. Haha!

  • jillian - ooo i want to try that salad! YUM
    xo jillian – cornflake dreams

  • Mia @ MakeMeUpMia - LOVE both of the kimonos, if I HAD to pick I’d say the Lottie & Holly one… Now I think I need one 😉

  • Colleen - Mmm that salad looks amazing! And the succulents are beautiful! Are they easy to keep alive? I always forget to water our plants :/ I pinned your bucket of goodies to make for O next year — very cute idea!

  • Jenny Collier - I went to buy one or the other today and both are sold out! Boo!

  • Jenny Collier - I loved that one too, Jessi. And now it’s sold out. Excited to try that salad too!

  • Jenny Collier - I loved the planter too, Cat. Have a great weekend!

  • Jenny Collier - Doesn’t the salad look amazing? Have a great weekend, Biana.

  • Jenny Collier - Check Lowes if they have them in your area, Leslie. Have a great weekend!

  • Jenny Collier - Can’t wait to try it myself, Jillian. Have a great weekend!

  • Jenny Collier - I loved that one…and now it’s sold out, Mia. Boo! If you find a cute one let me know. :)

  • Jenny Collier - I have no idea if they are easy to keep alive, Colleen. We shall see. My friend said they should be watered every 1 1/2-2 weeks and kept in moderate light. So, I probably should move them inside or in a shadier area.

  • Vanessa - Love those succulents!!! And they just came like that?! That’s my perfect kind of plant arrangement–where someone else does the work and makes it look pretty 😉 And I vote for kimono #1…darling!

  • B @ The Sequin Notebook - Ohhhh that kimono looks so effortlessly chic – I wonder if I could pull it off!

  • Jenny Collier - I think so too! I’m sure it would look great on you!

  • Jenny Collier - Yes, they did. Amazing right? Totally worth $18.
