five on friday 1/23

Friday, January 23, 2015


It's Five on Friday time and I'm actually linking up with the girls again!!  Yeah for blogging!  I'm hoping to post more about those first few whirlwind weeks when Reid was born & his nursery is coming together too- so lots to blog about when I get some time!

For now here are 5 things that are making me happy right now:

Barista Prima Dark Hazelnut K-Cups

Love!  I'm a big fan of hazelnut coffee and strong coffee.  But usually hazelnut coffee is so mild and weak.  I was so excited to find these k-cups at Bed, Bath & Beyond- Yum!

I drink it iced every day in a plastic Mason Jar cup---but I really want a glass mason car with a handle and lid----any suggestions where to get one??

Caldrea Vanilla Lemon Candle

OMG- obsessed!  This is my most favorite candle- I first bought one when we moved in August.  I'm all about fragrances and wanted a new fragrance for our new home.  And this is it!!  I got one at Target and went back for more.  They made it in a diffuser so I bought 3, but they no longer carry them at Target :(  

I took a break from it in the Fall (for Yankee Candle Pumpkin Pie candle and during the holidays I love Evergreen from Bath & Body Works.)  I try to burn sparingly because I don't want to use it too fast.  I get them at Target.  They come in 3 sizes.  The large one is around $18 but it goes on sale often for about $15.

BEM Wireless Speaker

This is such a great little speaker that Christian uses at work and I started using it on the weekends while I'm in the kitchen or bopping around trying to get a little baby to stop crying!.  So we just bought another one to keep at home.  It's only like $40.

Hue Ultra Wide band leggings


Sheaffer at Pinterest Told Me To sold me on these last year.  She labeled these a must have and I totally agree!  I have them in grey and black and wear them about 5 out of 7 days right now!

She did just blog about another legging- Zella.  I'm tempted to try them too.

The Bachelor

I look forward to it every monday!  This week's episode with Jimmy Kimmel was hysterical!

And speaking of hysterical- you must read Sheaffer's Bachelor recaps- I look forward to those too!

Happy Weekend!!


  1. I love candles so I will have to look for the one you love! And I seriously need those leggings.. I've been thinking about it for awhile.. Sheaffer gets me a lot!

    Also love love love the bachelor and her recaps!

    Have a great wknd! Stopping by from the link up.

  2. Love those leggings, too! That candle looks amazing.

  3. Those k-cups! Yes! We get them at work and they are delicious. Found your blog on the link up :-)

  4. That coffee sounds delish! I found my glass mason jars with handle and lid at Bed, Bath and Beyond. They were $9.99 for 4! They might be able to order them if not still in stock- they've done that for me before. :)

  5. I just found your blog and love it!! I love the Bachlor he is so adorable. Whitney is my fav… Hope you had a great weekend

    1. Great! Thanks for reading! I like Whitney too! This season is soooo good!

  6. The Hue leggings are on my to-purchase list after this pregnancy! I have a Zella pair that are amazing, so you should try them too! Come July there will definitely be a pair of two on the anniversary sale!

    1. Good to know! I'm going to wear holes in these hues if I keep wearing them so much! So I guess I should get the Zella's and add them to the rotation!


I love to read your thoughts! Thanks for your comment!
