Five on Friday: A Link-up!

Bring on the sunscreen, vacations, bright nail polish, summer dresses and floppy hats – it’s the first official day of SUMMER! I am so ready for summertime!


 Before we get down to business… a big congratulations to fellow Five on Firday host Natasha, on the arrival of Miss Carson! Couldn’t be happier for your family of four!


On to the Five!

– ONE – Ohhhh myyy gooodness. The semi-annual Bath & Body Works sale is going on right now! Earlier this week I stocked up on $5 aromatherapy bubble bath {regularly $13}, $3 hand soaps {regularly $5.50}, $5 mini candles {regularly $10} and $10 three-wick candles {regularly $20}!

  Saved $55.50!!

– TWO – Ever since we brought our lemon tree outside for the summer it has been growing like crazy!! Contrary to all of the reviews and tips I read, this tree is thriving in all of our recent downpours and summer heat! Grow little tree, grow!


Also, after I wrote {this post} about my obsession with our new lemon tree, a few of you asked where you could find one. Recently I’ve seen them stocked at Home Depot for $20!!

 – THREE – I cut my hair off! Well, four inches off anyway. I am loving my new short hair for summer and am super happy with how healthy and voluminous my hair feels.

– FOUR – I am dying to make this fruit pizza. OH MY GOODNESS it looks delicious!!!

Fruit Pizza

via Jen’s Favorite Cookies


2 pkgs. packaged sugar cookie dough
8 oz. cream cheese (Istrawberry whipped cream cheese)
1 lime
 strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, bananas, kiwi, mandarin oranges

Press cookie dough
into a sheet pan, and use a rolling pin to roll flat. Bake at 350
degrees for 25-30 minutes until lightly brown. Let cool. Mix cream cheese with juice from one lime. Spread on cooled cookie crust. Slice fruits and place in rows on top of cream cheese layer.

– FIVE – If you follow me on Instagram you know that I am celebrating the first day of summer on the coast of the Sunshine State in a big floppy hat this weekend for a mini family beach vacation!

    You shouldn't have told me about the B&B sell! I'm a lemon junkie and they have everything imaginable in a delicious lemon scent …..I have most all of it, but it's about time to restock!!!Secondly – that's it. I'm getting a lemon tree (my brother and SIL got one right after you did), so I have lemon envy! ;)And I really LOVE your hair! Looks great and perfect for summerrrrr time!Have a wonderful and relaxing mini beach vacay / fam get together! You guys have an awesome summer line-up too!

    I love the 3 wick candles, especially when they're on sale. $10 each is such a steal! I like to stock up and keep them as hostess gifts or as a quick birthday gift. Your hair looks fab, by the way!

    That fruit pizza looks so delicious. That wouldn't last past the weekend at my house. 🙂 I will be in your sunny state later this month (Disney!). I am sort of addicted to Bath & Body Works hand soaps and wallflowers! They do have some good coupons! We have a blueberry and a tomato bush on our patio, never thought of a lemon tree… how fun! Looks like lots of lemonade in your future!

    I'm so happy you made the comment about lemon trees at Home Depot. My husband has been wanting one for about a year now and since we live in WI we can't find anyone that sells them. Went straight over to Home Depot and I found them! He was so excited! Thanks again!
