Friday FIVE

Hello!  It has been a month tomorrow since my last post.  I needed to take 5, or in this case 30!  LIfe has been a little nutty with trying to unpack our storage units, settle in to the house, and plan out this next year.  In the process of that, I didn't think anything I would say was all that interesting, but I have LOVED crossing things off my to do list!

But today is Friday, Mini K is home from school for a long weekend and for the first time in as long as I can recall we have NO PLANS.  It seems like a luxury and one I am celebrating.

I promise, no more long breaks, and I plan to catch up on everyone's blog this weekend!

Now, the 5 things I am loving this week!

I thought everyone should have a surprise this weekend-40% off ALL PAPER items at the Grove with code:  CABOODLE.  You can find them all HERE and the sale runs through the 18th.

2.  Coffee Table Books
My guilty pleasure is flipping through the pages of coffee table books.  My amazon wish list is full of them.  I LOVE to give them as gifts and think that more people should.  Currently, I have my eye on this one all about the fabulous Valentino house of couture!

3.  Polymer Top Coat
This top coat was in my February Julep Maven box and it is AMAZING.  You put it on over regular nail polish and in 5 minutes it dries like a gel manicure.  My regular manicure is now going on day 15 without a chip or scratch.  I have subscribed to Birch Box in the past, but think the monthly Julep Maven boxes are so much better.  You can subscribe for $0.01 with code:

4.  No Clutter
Mr. G had our contractor install these all over and I was skeptical but now LOVE them.  Seriously order them.  No more looking for chargers as all you need is your cord.

5.  New Kicks
After foot surgery on my left foot and a broken right foot in the past 12 months, I had to get orthotics for my shoes.  The good news was I had to get new kicks.  The bad news was I had to get new kicks.  I always find shopping for running shoes frustrating and they always seem to feel different after a few runs in them.  I am happy to say that after a few runs, I love these kicks as much as I did when I tried them on and the fact that they are pink and green is icing on the cake!

I promise, I will post again this weekend and cannot wait to read everyone's Friday FIVE!
