Five on Friday!

Happy Friday! Whew, we’ve got some serious cabin fever over here today. Just got the text that school is closed for the THIRD day in a row.  

one. I had a lot of requests on insta-stories about my shoes I wore in Florida. I found it so funny because the picture I posted didn’t even show the full beauty of the shoes.  Here they are in their full glory…and they are ON SALE…and I am obsessed with them…


two. So I just finished All the Missing Girls…and I didn’t love it. I knowwww. I knooooooooow. I’m in the minority because so many of you swore this was one of the very best books. I just felt like it was too slow for me and I kept losing interest! I and can’t wait to crack open The Good Daughter tonight!

three. I was cracking up last night at the amount of questions I received about the kitty cat night light that Caroline showed off during her room tour on insta-stories! Truth be told, Matt bought it on his own and when it arrived I thought it was SO weird…but Caroline is obsessed with it — clearly!

four. We made these Whole30 Greek Burgers last night and I couldn’t wait until my next Meal Plan Monday post to share them. We devoured ours too fast to even snap a picture.

five. There’s nothing like an unexpected snow day to push me to finally scoop up some rain/snow boots for the kiddos. At the sign of the first flurry, I purchased these adorable shark boots for Tom and kitty cat boots for Caroline. Both on sale for less than $20! Also purchased a cute dinosaur hat + mittens set (on sale) for Tom so he wouldn’t have to use socks as mittens anymore. #secondkidproblems

Oh, I totally didn't even finish All the Missing Girls, so you are not alone!!! I read about 150 pages and just lost interest. I'm surprised so many people loved it!Hope you have a good weekend – and cheers to school on Monday (let's hope, ha!)!-Sarah

    Stop everything and read It Ends With Us. It is hands down the best book I've read and I ended up lending my book to about 10 other girls who all LOVED it!!!!!

    I haven't heard of The Good Daughter! I will have to put that on my To-Read list! 🙂

    Just started All the Missing Girls as I saw it recommended a few places. It starts out very slowly and I am wondering if I am that interested in plugging on. I think the author could get to the point (on nearly every page) in a much more succinct way. Love your shoes!

    Hi Christina! I really love your blog! Have been trying to figure out how to post comments for the last couple of days and realised I wasn't in the right browser (comment box does not show up on internet explorer). I wish I hadn't seen the burger though – it looks SO delicious. It is 09:30 pm in the UK and having already had two bowls of pasta for dinner this is NOT GOOD! 🙂 Looking forward to reading more on your lovely blog! Europafox x
