five on friday 8/30

Friday, August 30, 2013

With my new schedule I have not had any time to blog, but since we have the day off today I am enjoying a lazy morning with Carter and had some time to put together my five for this week!  Thanks to the lovely ladies for hosting again!

We survived week one of working and full time daycare!
There were ups and downs, a few tears, very little sleep, but overall it went well!  More on that in another post!
Having Rita's for the first time after our first day of school! He loved it!
Time to plan & organize
I'm really working on organizing everything.  Before I go to bed each night I have my lunch packed, Carter's lunch ready, all of our bags by the door and our outfits laid out.  By the time we get home, making dinner while holding a toddler---it just ain't happening!  We have to work on that!
Organized entryway. Have what you use, get rid of what you don't. Change to colors of the boxes for seasonal colors, or choose colors that work throughout the seasons! #FallHomeDecor #EntrywayStorage #SmallSpaceBigStyle          meal planning printable

Labor Day beach weekend!
We are leaving in a little bit for our last summer weekend at the beach house.  I'm looking forward to spending time with Carter and our family, some yummy food, relaxing, maybe getting a pedicure and reading!!

Labor Day sales
Instead of sitting in the ridiculous shore traffic on monday, we decided we'll come home on Sunday. That way we can plan and organize for the week (see #2) and most importantly, go shopping to catch some great deals with the Labor day sales!  I've already been to the 50% Carter's sale, but my work wardrobe definitely needs a few pieces and Carter needs some fall outfits too!
labor day red bright & blue event up to 40% off select styles. now thru monday, 9/2.     The Land of the Spree

New jeans
On another blog that I read, Pinterest Told Me To she has been raving about these jeans from Nordstrom and I think I'll be ordering them this weekend!  She absolutely swears they are must haves and at $38 why not try them, right!  Oh and if you haven't read her blog, you should.  She's pretty funny and has some great recommendations.  And if you're a bachelor fan, her recaps are the best!

Hope you have a happy, long weekend!


  1. Hope y'all have a great weekend at the beach --- I'll close my eyes and pretend we're beachside as well! Sounds wonderful! And thanks for the heads up - definitely checking out the sales!!

  2. Oooh, thanks for the Carter's 50% off reminder! Hope you have a relaxing weekend, you guys deserve it after this week:)

  3. WE went shopping at Carter's this weekend!! Loved the 50% off :)

  4. Great post full of useful tips! My site is fairly new and I am also having a hard time getting my readers to leave comments. Analytics shows they are coming to the site but I have a feeling “nobody wants to be first”.
