Five on Friday!

We are en route to Florida for Memorial Day weekend!

one // I’m a bad friend for not sharing this with y’all. I actually thought I had and during our girl’s trip I was looking for the link on my blog to share with everyone who used mine and loved it and realized I never posted about it! Sorry! Anyway, I have to share an amazing $3 texture tease spray for those of you who want to add incredible volume and texture to your hair without weighing it down. It’s what I use in place of dry shampoo and it’s awesome. Also, I hear this is the dupe for the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, which is still on my wish list to compare!

two // This made me LOL so hard.

three // Earlier this week Matt and I had a rare breakfast date at littleSpoon, the restaurant directly below his office and it was sooooo good. Matt works from this restaurant several mornings a week and is always raving about the food and coffee. And since I hadn’t been in forever we decided to grab a quick breakfast there together before work one morning. The coffee cups are so massive you have to use two hands, they serve the thickest bacon I’ve ever seen and the avocado toast is so…pretty!

four // Our vacuum cleaner bit the dust recently which really annoyed me because it was only five years old (and just out of warranty). Anyway, I took it to the repair shop and the cost to fix it was nearly the same amount I paid for the vacuum! So off to local mama facebook group I went to poll 8,500 ladies on which vacuum we should get. There were a lot of Miele canister lovers, but Matt quickly squashed that when I showed him the price…and he threatened to never vacuum again if I got a canister vacuum. So anyway, another seriously popular vacuum among the group was the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Professional. After reading 3,000 of the 10,220 4.5 star reviews (I’ll be seeing vacuum side bar ads for the rest of my life), I primed it. We’ve only had it a month, but I vacuum daily so I’ve used it like 30 times already and I am loving it, especially for the hardwoods! Sorry for being so excited about a vacuum, y’all.

five // Last night I made Figgy Balsamic Pork from HelloFresh and y’aaaaalllll, you need to make this recipe. Even my kids licked their plates clean. This recipe is so highly rated by HelloFresh subscribers that it’s in the “Hall of Fame”! Find the recipe here.

I swear getting a new vacuum is like Christmas morning. Total mom life but seriously!!

We recently bought a Shark and just love it. In fact, we bought a second one for upstairs because we like it so much. After I felt the suction while using it for the first time, I realized how little our old model was actually getting off the floor. It's the little things in life!

We've had that shark vacuum (or maybe one similar...?) for over 5 years and love. I must admit that it doesn't get used quite as much anymore because we invested in a Neato Robot vacuum that we use pretty much daily. It too, is also amazing (as is not vacuuming and still coming home to clean floors!).

We have an Oreck professional and I LOVE it... except that it doesn't have a hose! So now we're in the market for a dust buster to go with it. Very efficient lol

So I bought the wireless handheld vacuum you recommended recently and it was EXACTLY what I need in my life! I live in a 545 sq. ft. city apartment and lugging out the big vacuum regularly from the awkwardly shaped closet was a pain. The handheld has been so helpful for quick daily spot cleanups and overall keeps everything cleaner. Thanks for the rec!
