Five on Friday Faves

Happy Friday my loves!  I know this was a short week, but I am never more happy than to see a Friday roll around.  Especially when I know that I get to post all about my faves that I'm loving right about now...

I of course am linking up with Darci and some pretty phenomenal ladies like I usually do every.single.Friday!!  For the "Five on Friday" link-up.  Here's what my nominees for my five faves are this week:

Y'all.  This shirt.  How true is this??  It literally screamed at me when I was browsing the internet the other day for cute/fun workout tanks...I don't know about y'all, but all I need, to make me happy, is food and to hear I look pretty every once and awhile (and the occasional gift is nice too)'s good for my ego the soul...I know quite a few girls that would be perfectly suited for this tank; especially around "that time of the month."  Can I get an "amen?" #funfindalert

Ok, so I know my "little's" birthday isn't for a few more months, but it's never too early to start planning, right??  I jusssssst might be one of those moms that goes above and beyond for his birthday every year, but I just can't help it!  So, as I was perusing the infamous Pinterest the other day, searching for birthday party ideas, this fun and creative idea popped up.  Annnnnd, I might just be stealing it!  It's an ice cream sundae bar...You put your ice cream into mason jars (with the lids), place them in a bucket of ice, and then display bowls of toppings for everyone at the party to mix and match until their heart is content!  How much fun would that be?  You can get as creative as you want, or keep it as simple as possible...LOVE this!

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, the hubs is starting to work out again...and with that working out comes a healthier eating plan for him (and in turn, the rest of the fam!)  That said, I tried to do good with my meal planning this summer, but time just slipped away, as did the summer, so more often than not, I was stuck making the same recipes every week.  So, when I found this clever little gem over at life of ai, I knew I had found an idea that would not only be efficient, but fun and cute hanging on our kitchen wall!  This will hold me accountable for my meals for the week, and no one (ahem...the hubs) will have to wonder what's on the menu everyday!  So clever...why couldn't I think up something like that??

Now that school is back in session, I don't know about you, but I feel like I need to suck up to thank Madden's teachers for all that they do for him...especially in the hustle and bustle of the "back to school" chaos.  My Mom is a teacher and I always remember those first few weeks of school she would come home exhausted.  She was adjusting to new students, a new schedule and from standing on her feet all day.  What better way to say thank you and we appreciate you than with cute (and free) printable ideas to thank them for all that they do and will do for your little ones this school year.  Check out all of these wonderful ideas here.  I'm thinking the "Donut" printable will be a perfect gift for breakfast next week...


Hold the phone...have y'all entered to win this cash money giveaway yet??!!  If not, you could be missing out on your opportunity to win $500 in Paypal Cash!!  I'm not even kidding you.  This is a legit giveaway y'all.  The only downfall is that I can't enter myself to win! :(  Boooooo!!  So what are you waiting for??  You have until noon today to enter!  Just follow the Rafflecopter instructions below and you're set.  Easy peasy...(lemon squeezy).  Go get yoself some!
