Hello Friday!  Is it just me, or did this week fly by?  No complaining over here.  I mean, Friday is second favorite F-word 🙂   Weekend plans: celebrating my Mama turning the big 6-0!  Sleeping in.  Coffee in my PJ’s.  Meal prep and I’ll share it next week too.  Showering the new mom to be, Brittany.  Pulling out all the Fall decor.  And maybe, just maybe getting some pumpkins for the front porch.  What’s on your agenda for the weekend?  Whatever it is, enjoy the shit out of it.  Before you know it, it’s Monday all over again!

 

Welcome to your weekly dose of Friday 5…..

ONECapper’s Refreshers // Always down to show some support for new businesses in town.  Formerly Stacked N’ Brewed turned Capper’s Refreshers.  Took Bay into the new establishment last night for a sweet treat.  She had an excellent day and there’s no better way to top it off than ice cream!  Except this isn’t actual ice ceam….it’s “shaved snow” with all the toppings served in  a waffle come.  Sprinkled with gold dust.  Looks like ice cream.  Tastes like ice cream.  I’m straight up SOLD on the shaved snow.  Try the “Dexter’s Delight” sans blueberries (because who likes them anyway) and you too will be in heaven.  Can’t wait to stop back in and try one of their meals.  Everything looked fantastic.  Go show your love for the new restaurant and let’s keep them around!!!

{friday 5}

Bailey, do you love me?  Are you riding?  Say you’ll never ever leave from beside me…….

Happy Friday!  We did it!  We made it through another week!  Summer is hard guys.  Kids get bored.  I don’t really feel like entertaining.  And to top it off, its hot as balls and I don’t see an end in sight.  Speaking of balls…..

I’m sharing the Walnut Honey Oatmeal Balls Tuesday!  Whoop Whoop!  After an overwhelming (in the best way possible) response, they are coming to the blog!

And I have to give a BIG giant thank you to you all for the love on yesterday’s post.  I really wasn’t sure how it would go over.  But seems like you guys dig dirty little secrets…lol.  Someone told me my post was “click-bait” Ha!  I love it!

But, first let’s get this song nice and stuck in your head, K?  Ha!

Have a great day friends!

Kiki, do you love me? Are you riding?
Say you’ll never ever leave from beside me
‘Cause I want ya, and I need ya
And I’m down for you always
KB, do you love me? Are you riding?
Say you’ll never ever leave from beside me
‘Cause I want ya, and I need ya
And I’m down for you always

ONE – In My Feelings Challenge //

It’s the Drake – In My Feelings dance that has basically gone viral.  Go to Instagram and type in #inmyfeelingschallenge  there are over 315K videos of peeps doing the famous moving car dance.  Bay + I watched them the other night crying we were laughing so hard.  Then she convinced me to let her do it.   Of course I said yes!  Then we proceeded to drive up and down our street dying laughing even more.  God, I love her!  ♥

From delicious rosé to outdoor inspo and target must-haves, here are ALL THE THINGS I’m currently craving for May…..

Currently Craving // The May Edition.  Formerly Wish List Wednesday.  Wanted to switch it up a bit.  Thinking that monthly, I’ll share not only what I’ve got on my wish list, but all the things I’m craving.

Being right smack dab in the middle of Spring brings so much color + cool new finds.  Out with the old, in with the fabulous.  Ha!

Yep, it’s finally Friday!  And this girl is ready to shake a tail feather.  How about you?  It was a damn good week.  I got shit accomplished.  This weather….straight up beer drinking weather.  What’s on the agenda for the weekend?  We’re hanging out Saturday and headed to the city on Sunday for a mother-daughter date ♥

Before I wrap up this day…..

Let’s chat about what I’ve got on my mind?  Just some things I’m currently diggin…..

 

ONE – Fanny Pack //  Ok friends.  I’m thinking about pulling the trigger on a fanny pack.  Crazy to think the 90’s fanny pack is making its way back.  Goes to show, everything comes full circle.  Ha!  There are so many cute options, but obvi I have my heart set on a not so budget friendly pack.  I think it would be so great for vacationing.  Weekends.  Shopping.  Anything really.  What do you think?

2018-TAN-LEATHER-PURSE-2_1024x1024

 

I found this on Urban Dictionary…lol:

A pouch or other device used to hold items usually worn around the waist. Most often used as an alternative to a man-purse.
Frank keeps his lube and lipstick in his fanny pack.

 

 

TWO – Songs // Do you ever listen to a song over and over till your almost sick of it? Me too!  Ha!  Midland has been on maj repeat.  This Old Heart + Burn Out have been my jam.  Having a little FOMO for Stagecoach.  Midland is on the lineup too!

Midland – Burn Out

Midland – This Old Heart

THREE – Snackin’ //  Hummus!  Like always, jazzed up!  Good ol’ Trader Joe’s hummus.  With a drizzle of olive oil.  And a couple sprinkles of TJ’s everything but the bagel seasoning.  Cut up veggies from the weekend meal prep.  TJ’s beet crackers, which I’m IN LOVE with.  I have to hide them or Bay + Cory will polish them off.

Jazz up your hummus this weekend and watch it disappear.

{record player setup}

Hi friends!  I’ve had DM after DM asking for more info on my record player.  So, you better believe I’m going to write a post about it!!

You know I’m all about sharing All.The.Things!

Record players have always fascinated me.  There is just something about flipping from side A to B and watching them spin.  It’s also incredibly relaxing.  As is with any music, I get it.  It’s a total novelty, I know, but I just love it!

I remember blasting Prince at the Roberts house on their parents record player back in the 90’s.  Dancing + singing at the top of our lungs.

I want to do the same thing with Bay.  I’m so crazy thankful we both have a deep love for music ♥

I did a some research.  Googled it!

Without spending a grip, I wanted something to begin with.  Something that worked well.  Something I could use my Bose bluetooth speaker with.  Something simple.  Something pretty!
