Five On Friday

It's time for another edition of Five on Friday and I do hope you'll join along!

Remember, all you have to do is post about five things on your mind, add our logo (found at the bottom of this post), and join the party using the linky tools below. Easy, and a great way to find new blogs and be found. :)

So, last night was the first night that we slept on our new PeachSkin sheets (THESE, if you are curious!). I'm in a local Facebook moms group where people raaaaave about these sheets, saying that they are truly the best ever.

I ordered Monday; they arrived Wednesday afternoon. I washed them Thursday morning and got them on the bed. I have to say that they slept GREAT and are so, so soft! Even Ian was a big fan! I went with the Brushed Silver which is a perfect light gray. One of the best colors they offer, I think. I love white sheets but I don't love when they inevitably get dingy.

I would recommend ordering directly from the Peachskin site before the end of the month if you are looking for this same color I have. They do a "color of the month" promotion and the silver ones are now $55 for any size -- but just on their site, not on Amazon. Shipping was around $10. I didn't love last month's colors so I am so glad that that lovely Brushed Silver was one of the choices for April.

Last weekend in Disney was pretty darn awesome, and I'm not just reminiscing about the Dole Whip floats. Buttttt ... I kind of am.

So last night I got a wild hair and searched up copycat recipes on Pinterest. Yessir, there are quite a few! HERE is one that I will share with you because I typically like recipes from this blog, Six Sisters Stuff. I haven't tried it yet but it looks so very easy! How refreshing would this be on a warm weekend day?

I am still having a BLAST monogramming things and learning this new skill! Thank you SO much to one of my sweet readers who emailed me and recommended the best embroidery thread. THIS is the rec she passed along to me. The colors are great, and the thread is so shiny and pretty! Yesterday I worked on some palm leaf print napkins which turned out great!

Big Little Lies. YES. I hadn't read the book so the series on HBO was completely new to me. It was awesome ... I loved every single actor in it, loved the storyline, loved the ending. Midway through the last episode I had a feeling where it was heading. I have even considered watching it again! It's dark and probably not for everyone, but man I enjoyed it. Reading the TV show's forum on GOMI has been pretty interesting. Even though I don't know the other posters, it's interesting hearing their takes on the show. Did you watch? How does it line up with the book?
