Five On Friday! YAY!

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. :)

All I have to say is it feels GOOD to be here, y'all. I have had a lazy blogging summer, half out of necessity (broken laptop) and half out of just being busy as hay-ell.

But blogging is my jam, such a wonderful connector of women, and it's my happy place! So thanks for staying patient while I had a little downtime this summer.

How sweet was the eclipse on Monday!?

Ian was home from work so we got to experience it together while the kiddos slept. At first I felt guilty with Camille missing it, but she can't even really be trusted yet with safety scissors let alone staring at a major eclipse.

She'll catch one in 2024, that I do know!

I am going to get a tissue box cover from my friend Elizabeth (she's the same one who did my den pillows ... her Etsy shop is HERE). She has so many fonts available ... which should I choose?

I'm thinking tan linen like below with all white embroidery for our powder room.

Music update -- it's been a few years since I was on a M.I.A. kick but I'm baaaaaack.

I seriously dig her. I'm listening to this album now as I write this! 


Yesterday I was sooooo overwhelmed, Camille's personality is SO big and powerful and she's really exercising her sassy muscle these days. I was trying to clean the master bath and she was just getting into so much mischief, just really pushing the envelope all day long, and at one point Ian called me to check in and I yelled at her using my Scary Mommy Voice with him on the line... and then just felt horrible. But the not listening over and over and over again and going against every single one of my orders just had me on edge all day. So when Ian arrived home and went straight to the fridge and then Camille came running back to the bedroom yelling "MAMA DADDY BOUGHT YOU SOME CAKE!" I knew that he got me and he knew exaaaactly what I needed when the kids went to bed. 

Ian ... you're cool. Thumbs up emoji. Heart eyes emoji. Fist bump emoji.
Blueberry lemon cheesecake from Reid's for the win. 


That's it for today! Hope you have a lovely weekend -- thanks for linking up with us below!
