5 on Friday

ONE // 
I received the most thoughtful gift ever from my dear friend Lauren. I seriously have never met a group of girls as kind hearted as the ones that I am lucky enough to call my friends. Out of all the gifts I have ever been given, this one not only made me smile, but made me realize just how blessed I truly am. She gave me a booklet that is filled with scriptures, words of encouragement (to help with my anxiety), and sweet notes from all my friends and even Todd :) 

Lauren and one of her friends just opened up an Etsy site here.  What a special gift to give someone you love. They would also make a sweet, unexpected stocking stuffer.

Sweet little Taylor has been sick all week again. We are thinking about taking her in to see a specialist for her never ending fever. Last fall and winter the same thing happened, she ran fever all the time. The strange thing is she never has any other symptoms and they just rule it as a virus every time we take her to her pediatrician. She's so pitiful when the fever peeks , but as soon as the Tylenol kicks in she's a happy little camper. Have any of you mamas ever experienced anything like this? My friend mentioned we should have her checked for autoimmune disease, which totally freaks me out, but so do these reoccurring high fevers. I am just ready to see this spunky little smiley face again:) 

I have, however, gotten lots of snuggle time with little bug. I have also been able to live in my leggings and Ugg slippers. Most sizes are gone in these, but here are similar ones for $20.00 more. 

A few of you emailed me about my outfit I posted on Instagram yesterday. I know the thing can be a little confusing. All you do is sign up here with your email address and then when I post an outfit and you like it the details will go straight to your inbox. 

This sweater is so soft and comfy.

This little girls room is to die for. I love how soft and clean it feels. 

FIVE // 
I leave you with this, as I have a dryer full of clothes that I have dried 5 times now ;) Haha!! Does anyone else have this problem? 


  1. I have a major laundry problem -- I re-dry 2 - 3 times before i get around to "folding" them.

  2. i love love that gift. so sweet of your friends. confession: laundry is my favorite chore....yeah i know, everyone thinks this is so weird but i really like fluffing the warm clothes...and laying in them. hahaha

  3. I'm sorry your little girl isn't feeling well- that is the worst. And, AMEN on the laundry. I don't mind the washing part, but folding and putting clothes away is probably my least favorite chore.

  4. Hey lady. When you say she is running a fever, how hot do you mean? My husband is a ped and I can ask him for this thoughts :)

    1. Like 104.6!! And she gets these fevers all the time and no other symptoms?! Thank you so much for your help!! xoxox

  5. Ok where do I start? !. I hope things with little T get figured out- that sounds like no fun! What a great gift idea! Bless them! Also, that outfit AND your make-up is pure perfection! Happy weekend friend! xoxo

  6. ugh, poor Taylor, hope she feels better. Millie is sick too, ugh poor girls. Love the slippers, the bag, love the entire outfit.

  7. Hey Caycee...I'm so sorry that your little one is feeling ill. My daughter (who was three at the time this happened) two years ago had the same thing. Not one other symptom to speak of. We had doctors appointments every other day trying to figure out what was going on and my husband and I were so concerned. They pediatrician felt her tummy and she had a swollen spleen, we really started to freak out. Lo and behold turns out she had mono. Our pediatrician said that it is actually common in young children but you only hear about it in your teenage years. There are two tests to check. The swab test you can find out in a day and that one came back negative, however they did another mono test that takes two weeks to get the answers back and sure enough that's what it was. I'll keep her in my prayers!

  8. Lots of goodness here but all I can focus on is sweet Taylor ... sending good wishes for her to feel better. You are being a great mama by taking such good care for her. Thanks so much Caycee for linking up again with us this week!

  9. I hope your daughter feels better real soon! So hard when the little ones are sick. Your daughter is so cute! Such a sweet and so very thoughtful gift your friend gave you. Very special. Love the sweater on you. It looks so cozy. Enjoy your weekend!

  10. I'll be praying for your little girl. Thank You Lord for healing her. XO

  11. Your poor baby girl! Praying everything gets better for her and you find a doctor with the wisdom to know what's happening.

  12. Aw no, poor little angel - hope she feels better soon my friend, and you manage to get some answers! Nothing worse than a sick baba! And that little girls room is too die for... x
