Five on Friday!

Happy Friday everyone!!! 

1. So, as some of you know, I am kind of obsessed with owls. They were my sorority mascot in college, and then Kathryn threw me this amazing owl-themed baby shower when I was pregnant with Ella. Anyway, my friend Dana, knowing this, sent me this BuzzFeed article, and I was dying laughing. 

I am almost thinking of going to buy one of these freaky owls for Ella. So, so funny. 

2. Shoutout to Rachel for having these waters at Bunco last week!

They almost, almost taste just like a mojito! Soooo good and so refreshing for this summer!! I am now obsessed. 

3. I'm loving all of the pretty flowers in our yard!!

Since we bought our house in the fall, I didn't know what any of these random plants were. They probably need to be trimmed down a bit, but gosh are they so pretty! 

4. Potty training update! 
We have successfully gone on several outings this week with (knock on wood) NO accidents! 

We may or may not bring the potty (or the portable one I got off Amazon) everywhere we go. But hey, you gotta do what you gotta do. 

5. Ella and I finally discovered the {somewhat} new J. Crew Mercantile store at Park Road Shopping Center yesterday! Oh man, am I going to be in trouble when I can wear regular clothes again. So many cute things!! I really had to restrain myself, but I did find these shorts (the whole reason I went there!) for Ella to wear under dresses this summer, only $7 a pair!

{My little shopping buddy liked relaxing on the benches}

Have a great weekend!


  1. Your yard is gorgeous! And that portable potty is genius. We've got potty training coming up here in the next couple of months and I might just have to get one of those!

  2. So jealous of your yard. Gorgeous! And also very glad I have a long time before I have to think about potty training.
