Five on Friday!

This is definitely the happiest Friday I’ve had in a very long time because…Matt and I are playing hooky together today for a little day date while the kids are in school!

one. Guess where we are headed? Hint: It’s my happy place. And no, it’s not my driveway, although we do love a good happy hour there! We’re headed to the mountains!

two. Last weekend Matt (& Thomas) cashed in a gift card that Matt has been hanging on to forever on a new Yeti…and one for me too (best surprise ever)! I now understand all the hype around these amazing tumblers! And I’m obsessed with the seafoam color he got me.

three. I have painted my nails (& Caroline’s toes) this gorgeous Essie color called Bikini So Teeny like seven times in a row now. I am so obsessed with it. It’s the perfect summer blue and although I normally opt for pinks and reds for toes I have loved this color on my toes and have received so many compliments!

four. New dress! New dress! I am always on the hunt for casual summer dresses to wear on the weekends and I just scooped this one up on sale for $19!! It comes in a ton of patterns and the fit is so flattering. These braided sandals are also my favorite for summer — I have them in white and gold and just grabbed two more pairs (black & brown) on sale! They are so comfortable and go with everything!

five. A few evenings ago I met a girlfriend for pedicures and cocktails. THIS cocktail is definitely going to be my summer jam — lemonade, muddled strawberries and vodka! It was so refreshing and delicious!!!

    Enjoy your day date! We have the seafoam Yeti and I just love it! It's so fun! That nail color is precious; I need to go pick that up for my toes before our beach trip. 🙂

    Dude…Bikini So Teeny! It's been my go-to for years (mostly just on my toes), and it's amazing how many compliments I get! Such an odd thing for people to notice and go to the trouble of complimenting!

    I have seen you sporting those beautiful earrings on your Instastories before – where did you find them? They are the prettiest color!
