The Friday Five

Hey, friends...happy, happy Friday to you! It's been a hot and busy week...made more painful by our air conditioner going out at home...on the day Texas decided to break 100-degrees! Why does it always happen like that?! Thank goodness for repairmen (no DIYing on the A/C!)...we are chilling again. Here's what's up this steamy Friday...


1) I love, love, love me some C.Wonder. What's not to love about Tory Burch-esque products at affordable prices?! And I especially love when they have a super sale....like an additional 50% off all sale items! Here are some of my favorites from the sale...with prices as low as $3!




2) Is your keyring a mess of membership and rewards cards? I have so many on mine, I can hardly get to my keys. Mr. Sugarplum just found and loaded the Cardstar app on my phone...and 5 minutes later, my keyring was clean again! You just scan each of your cards (grocery stores, library cards, memberships, etc), and it stores them all for free. I'm not particularly techy...but I love when I find something that makes life run a little smoother.

3) I remember the best thing about the first day of school, was having a brand new notebook, perfectly sharpened pencils, and a cute new backpack. I'm a huge fan of the Land's End packs...they cost a bit more, but last for several years. In fact, Babygirl has had hers for 3 years, and it's still in great shape. The only reason she's getting a new one is because she outgrew it! To get her excited about school, we sat down together and I let her choose her backpack, the color, and even the monogram style. She can hardly wait for the first day of school now!

4) I've watched this video about 50 times, and it makes me smile and chair-dance every time. Jimmy Fallon is cutest, the Roots are so talented, and Robin Thicke and that song....well, let's just say, 'Yum.'






5) The kids and I are headed to the beach tomorrow, and I'm trying to force myself to leave behind everything that plugs in or needs a charge. They are growing up so fast, and I want to savor these moments, not be distracted. Of course by the time Mr. SP shows up later in the week, I may be begging for a beer laptop.

a weekend sentiment..

  11. Great post today! Need the CardStar app SO much. You brought back memories of Lindy's excitement every year choosing new LLBean backpack color and monogram style. Video...adding Jimmy Fallon to anything just makes it better. Expect lots of pics on Instagram from beach - lots of fun times there with you when you were little sugarplums ages. And....I hate to be grammar police, but it drives me CRAZY when "lay" is used for "lie".....love the sentiment, though!

  14. I've heard great things about that app, thanks for motivating me to finally download it! My husband just laughs when he sees my key ring ... he calls it my janitor key set. This will at least free up some of the space :)

    Thanks for linking up with us, Cassie!

  16. Whew - glad it's the weekend, too! But ya'll live in Big D - what beach are you going to for the weekend? Come on, 'fess up. Is it an ocean beach or a lake beach? We have Volente Beach here in Austin and it's a lake beach that they had to truck in tons of sand to create. But we moved here from South Texas where we went to South Padre Island every weekend with miles of ocean beach to frolic in....
