5 on Friday - Progress!

The Resale Sites were a HIT!  Everything we had listed has sold!!

Sorry if you wanted the Golf Cart.

I'm super low on photos this week.  I'm working really hard at keeping my phone down during family time and so far I'm loving it.  I do miss skimming through the photos and remembering the fun times though.

Speaking of skimming.....


Have you heard about Skimm?  It's a daily email that gives you the highlights from the news the day before.  I feel like I'm out of the loop when it comes to fast hitting politics, global economics, and even pop culture.  We don't have cable and I don't browse news websites often enough (with chasing a toddler around and what not).

I love my bite sized Skimm email in the morning to keep me informed.  It's FREE!!


I did it.  I went shopping at the Nordstrom sale.  My buys:


-Not a part of the sale, but requested by my Cubs loving husband-

I've heard good things about this blazer and I couldn't pass it up.  We'll see if it's worth it.


I've listed some designer jeans on my Poshmark page!  Cleaning out our closets has been so nice, but I have so much more to post!  Lots of designer brands coming your way this weekend. :)

Happy Friday Folks!  Stop by April at Smidge of This to check out the link-up.

Dear #wiggydiggy, 
Right now, your voice is the sweetest and I love hearing you tell me stories.  You also have some of the cutest phrases that I have no desire to change right now.  Maybe one day we'll correct you, but for now, we are loving your unique language.

I Can't Try! = I Can't Do It, while you are trying to do whatever it is you're complaining about
For example: shooting free throws repeatedly, but not making a basket

I Can't want it! = I Don't want it

Pipsicle = Popsicle

I Hold You = Pick me up

Sprit-lers = Sprinklers

Then you'll list the name of every machine we pass.  You LOVE Front Loader's and Digger's.

Samm-ich = Sandwich

You have your meals mixed up.  Breakfast and Lunch are Dinner.  And Dinner is Lunch.
Even though we call them the correct names - you'll correct US and tell us "No!  It's Lunch!"

ECHO! What time is it!
Sadly she never answers you, so I need to figure that out, but I love that you repeat us. :)

5 on Friday

So....have you heard??
It was Amazon Prime Day on Tuesday and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale started yesterday!!

No, really, I don't think I've read more than two blog posts all week that are NOT about the sales.
And I'm guilty as charged :)

Justin saw the price of the Echo and jumped at it.  Now we'll have one in our room and another one in the kitchen.  (honestly, I'm super excited about it)
We are also very boring and bought a scale.
(It's still on a great sale)
Ours broke a few months ago and keeps saying Justin and I weigh the same.

LOL for Days

As for the Anniversary sale?  I don't have a card so I'm not shopping early.  I AM browsing through to see if there's something I just cannot live without.

And on a complete opposite side of the spectrum, I think I've take three car loads full to goodwill this week.  Our guest room is full of items I need to list for sale or put in a donation pile.

I'm trying to purge and it's going VERY slowly.
Please send help.

I painted our front door a while back.

We are currently working on finding/buying new sliders and french doors for the house.  While in Home Depot, we found a few front doors that we really liked.  One was painted this beautiful navy blue.

Similar color:

I think this color may win as the new front door color!


We replaced the exterior lights on our "new" patio.
with bonus old birds nest!


We even picked up the BugZapper light bulbs, and they barely fit.  Hallelujah


This weekend consists of more Goodwill trips, listing on Buy/Sale websites and the like.
One day I'll get to enjoy my house, right?
