Five on Friday

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


01.  My kids started school this week.  Although I am so excited for us to be back on a schedule again (and to have some alone time who am I kidding) it is a little bittersweet that my boy will be in Kindergarten next year.  I’m hoping this year goes by really slowly.

02.  Fall Chalkboard – I updated our chalkboard wall with some fall chalk art.

03.  Candle Scents – I picked up these candles last month and started burning Sweather Weather this week.  Love it!  Pumpkin Carving also smells pretty amazing.  But I still think it’s a bit too early for the pumpkin scents…it’s still 80-90 degrees here on a daily basis.



04.  Pumpkin Spice Latte – I need to get my hands on one of these things before my 24 Day Challenge starts on Sunday.

05.  Fall Clothing – I mentioned earlier in the week that I am on a Contentment Challenge which means no fun new fall clothing for me.  However, I did create a Shop Your Closet Pinterest board that will help me re-create new outfits with pieces that I already have.

  • Elizabeth - Your babies are so cute! Love that wide angle in the first shot. Precious memories.

  • Jessica - Your kids are such cuties!!

  • Laura Wyatt - I love that “shop your closet” board! Following it now 😉
    Have a great weekend!

  • Ashley Dorey - Love the SHOP YOUR CLOSET board you created, great idea!

  • Leah - I am addicted to BBW candles and I don’t have either of those. Looks like a trip is in store this weekend! I can’t wait for our move to be over with and have a place to decorate for fall. Your kids couldn’t be cuter!

  • Laura Y - Contentment Challenge…I like that! Maybe I’ll give it a go too! Going to find that post!!! Your kiddos are precious!

  • Liz - You seriously and truly have the most adorable and beautiful children.

  • Rachel - I just had my first pumpkin spice latte of the season, even though it’s beyond hot right now! Now that it’s September I feel very impatient for fall. Definitely going to pick up those candles, thanks for sharing!

  • Jenny - Thank you, Liz. You are too sweet!

  • Jenny - They are good ones, Rachel! I had a PSL yesterday & today. I had to get as many in as I could before the challenge. :)

  • Jenny - Would love to know if you decide to do it too, Laura!

  • Jenny - I always wait until the 10 for $20 sale happens and stock up. :) I find it hard to buy them at $20 when I can get them for half price every so often. Thank you for the sweet words about my kiddos.

  • Jenny - Thank you, Laura. It’s definitely been a help when I feel like I just need a new outfit. :)

  • Jenny - Thanks Jessica!

  • Jenny - Thank you Elizabeth!

  • Emily - That chalkboard art is amazing! And your littles look so cute headed back to school :)

  • Becky {this is happiness} - Your kiddos are so, so precious! Love the chalkboard and shop your closet idea!

  • Sarah - I just stocked up on yummy fall candles at BBW too :) I loved your editable summer bucket list. I have my fingers crossed you will do a fall one soon!

  • Jenny - Your wish will be granted. :) Coming next week.

  • Jenny - Thank you, Becky.
