The Friday Five

Happy Friday, friends! I loved, loved, loved all your comments and advice yesterday! Several of you suggested I try the floral rug in our pink Dining Room...hello, genius idea! After all, the Dining Room colors came from that rug since it lives in the adjoining room. If that doesn't work, I realized I'm not ready to let the rug go, so I loved your idea of hanging on to it for a possible future home. I wonder if Mr. Can't Polish a Turd is up to playing musical rugs this weekend?!

1) I spotted this adorable sweater online this week, and was so smitten with the heart elbow patches that I immediately whipped up an outfit around it, using similar items from my closet. Actually, I own these exact jeans, booties and scarf, and love them more than cupcakes.

2) Deuce Cities Henhouse recently revamped the kitchen in her 100-year-old home, making it so fresh and modern, yet somehow retaining all the vintage charm. Oh yeah, and she did it for just over $2,000! That's DIY genius at it's finest!

3) Are these crazy-cold temperatures forcing you inside again this weekend? We get cabin fever pretty quickly, so I was thrilled to find these Indoor Snow & Ice Activities for kids on the Kiwi Crate blog. I told you about Kiwi Crates in my Favorite Things post. This link will get you $10 off your first order.


4) The new season of The Bachelor is under way, and I have to say I'm not really feeling Juan Pablo. But the best part of the show is Sheaffer's hilarious re-caps. You don't have to be a fan or even watch the show to love them. And this Sunday is the big wedding for Bachelor Sean and Catherine, and my friend Shay is Sean's sister. I'm so excited to see her and her adorable kids all decked out for it! How would you wear your hair if you were a bridesmaid in a live televised wedding, watched by millions of people?!?!


5) I shared a bunch of the MLK sales in this post, and all are still on-going with further markdowns. Express now has 40% off everything, including my favorite blouse. How cute is this one? West Elm also has so many sales I can't keep them all straight...from sofas and sectionals, to bedding and market...not to mention a clearance section with up to 70% off. And this hamper is cute enough to make laundry enjoyable. Almost.

Happy weekend, lovebugs!

P.S... the winner of the Honeywell Voice Activated Wifi Thermostat was announced here...was it you?!


  1. Poo. I don't see the winner announcement. Maybe it WAS me!! :^)

  2. Any outfit that mixes stripes, plaid, and a utility jacket and I'm in. Oh, and what a fantastic kitchen redo -- white cabinets, LOVE.

  3. So how in the world do you get your Mr. on board with white kitchen cabinets?! Mine has put his foot down. I want to know the secret!

  4. ummm love that kitchen makeover! have a great weekend! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  5. That kitchen makeover is so inspiring. But let's be honest. . . I am totally distracted by the boobs.

  6. Adore that kitchen makeover, can't wait to see what you do with the rug, and I am having boob envy. (why did I nurse again?)

  7. Thanks for sharing the link to The Bachelor re-cap. I hadn't seen that before, but thought it was too funny and right on! Also, love that heart sweater!

  8. That kitchen remodel is incredible. Such an incredible transformation.


Your comments are like popcorn with milk duds, I just can't quit them. Thanks for taking the time to share your positive thoughts! xoxo, cass
