5 on Friday

You guys seemed to enjoy me bringing back Five on Friday, and honestly, it's one of my favorites to write. 

I love sharing with you guys the things that are running through my head :) 

ONE
I am completely heartbroken that Carson is going to kindergarten in a few short weeks. I know that sounded a little dramatic, but really, I am sad. I know I should be excited and happy for him, but I am going to miss him like crazy. Carson has the most tender heart of any child I know and I swear I am not just saying that because he's mine. He's my little helper, my sidekick, and one of my best buddies. And don't get me started on how much Taylor will miss him. That girl loves her 'bubba' and they do everything together. I feel like he's just too little to be gone all day long and away from his mama. Why is time moving so fast? These pictures literally feel like yesterday to me. And now I am crying, next subject please.


TWO
Todd and I have decided we want to take one more little weekend trip away with the kids. We can't figure out where to go? Any suggestions for kid friendly places that aren't 5 hours away? We loved The Andell Inn so much we may just go out there again. I know it seems silly to drive up the rode 20 minutes and spend money staying in a hotel, but you feel like you are miles away, and it's so beautiful there. Plus, that bed, it was heavenly!

THREE
My girl Sidney who owns Eclectic in Mt. Pleasant is the real deal!  We had the best time there last week at the blogger meet and greet! Met so many amazing ladies, and found about 50 more things that I want for our house. It was a good night!

This art is number one on my list!
  
With this chair coming in at a close second!

And pretty much everything on this shelf.

You all know that I am 100% a romper lover, but I have yet to hop on the jumpsuit bandwagon. I want  to badly, but I am afraid that I will look like a total goof in one. I have had my eye on these two for a little while now. I am more drawn to the teal color, but something tells me to start out slow and go with the black first. What are your though on this? Yay or nay?

**And don't forget Sunday is the last day to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary sale**


Seafoam jumpsuit $68.00                                               Black jumpsuit  $78.00

FIVE
We had ladies supper club Wednesday night at Natalie's house. No surprise, it was some of the best food I have ever eaten. My girl does no wrong in the kitchen! 



I also surprised them all with my favorite adult sippy cups! These things are the best invention ever!!  I take it everywhere with me. And if you love a monogram as much as I do then you will love this website, it's like monogram heaven over there. Plus, the quality and customer service is some of the best I've ever seen. Brooke you rock girl!


Words can't describe the love I have for these girls and I feel so blessed to have them in my life.


* On a random note, you may notice I am not wearing my backless dress from Rosegold and Blush, nothing like a cup of spilled milk from your toddler on the way out the door. Never a dull or clean moment with my kids :) 


Happy weekend everyone!!!!

  8. I cannot even imagine sending one off to K. Such a bittersweet time. I am so happy you are loving Brooke's new business! She is such a wonderful person one of the first people I met when we moved back to Richmond. She has the kindest heart and I'm so happy to see her hardwork take-off! And Nat seriously blows my mind in the kitchen. Matthew drools over every one of her food posts on insta. She needs to give lessons :)

  11. I need that zippy cup pronto! And I think you guys and the kids would love the Amelia Island Plantation/OMNI hotel. It's absolutely beautiful, tons of kids activities (camp Amelia, nature center, pirate play ground, golf cart rentals with amazing trails, fishing ponds, etc.) and beautiful pools and beach + wonderful on-site restaurants for every meal, ice cream, etc. And I think there are great deals going on in August since it's back to school for the south and quieter down there now. Let me know if you do go and I'll hook you up with recommendations for downtown restaurants if you venture off the plantation!

  12. Caycee!! Thank you SO much for the adorable feature! I'm thrilled that you and your friends are enjoying the sippy cups- I'm slightly obsessed with them! I know what you mean about your sweet boy... mine is turning FOURTEEN next week! He is "bubba" to our girls too-love it! Julia~thank you for the lovely words, sweet girl! When I met you, I didn't even know what a blog was! Thank you for the introduction to my coffee/blog fix and all of your amazing SC friends!!

  14. Haha, I totally just left a comment on Natalie's post asking where y'all got those cups...guess I should have read your post first! I too have the same fears towards jumpsuits as you...and I thought if I started, black would be the way to go first...I actually just ordered two rompers for the first time (have been wanting one forever but wanted to make sure I really loved it) and I found two at Lookbookstore. Can't wait to get them. Not sure how I will look in them with still a little postpartum weight on me, but hopefully by next spring I'll be rockin' them with my old body...lol. :-)
