Happy Friday! Thanks for all the opinions on the fridge poll! Y’all mentioned a lot of things I hadn’t thought about so it was really helpful.
one // Over the weekend I did a little planty project using the cutest planter set and love how it turned out. I’m an overwater-er (?) so I hope I can put the watering can down and let these low maintenance plants thrive in our sunny dining room.
two // Charlotte friends, who is going to Disney on Ice?! We are surprising our kids with tickets and I am super excited about the show. And I’m giving away a 4 pack of tickets to one lucky reader for a showtime of their choice!!! Enter the giveaway using the rafflecopter below!

three // After screaming about hating his “baby bed” (AKA toddler bed) for the past few weeks at 2 am each morning we finally upgraded Tom Tom to a big boy bed with shark sheets!!! Now if we can just keep him in it! Currently, he likes to get up at 5 am in the morning to go potty and then NOT return to his bed. Instead, he prefers to wake his sister up (and us)! And yes, we have an OK to Wake! clock — he just doesn’t care to follow the rules, he also isn’t incentivized by stamps, sticker charts, treats, toys, a puppy, etc. So yeah, we’ve all been well-rested and not snippy at all with each other the past few weeks. It’s been awesome.
But dang, doesn’t he look adorable in his bed reading Corduroy to Corduroy?

four // An appropriate segway — I picked up some Ketel One grapefruit & rose vodka last weekend and really liked it. I still don’t think it beats my favorite summer Deep Eddy’s cocktail but it is close. I used soda water + lots of fresh lime. But one of my readers suggested using La Croix grapefruit and I am pretty sure that is going to blow my mind.
five // I snagged this new twist peplum top for work recently and have received SO many compliments on it. I am wearing the size 2 and it runs short so I layer a tank underneath. I am on the hunt for a cute black pencil or mini skirt for another way to style it.
Happiest weekend, friends! Now go read this post and this post by Marriage Confessions this week if you want to ROFL. I seriously died laughing over these posts. Her blog is one of my favorites.

My son is too! She’s his favorite, but he refuses to watch the movie. ??♀️

We love all the Disney characters, but Elsa and Moana are a favorite right now!

I kill all plants. Its a curse!
Bekah W says
Those Ketel One Botanicals are the best! I’ve been relying on the other two (peach and cucumber mint) varieties all summer with plain soda water but have been meaning to also spruce them up with some la croix. Yum!
ABBIE HAWKS says
I want to surprise my bestie and her family! They love all things Disney!
We love Elsa and Minnie! I am an overwater-er too 🙁

Erica Parish says
My 2YO little boy, Gray loves Mickey Mouse. But the Puppy Dog Pals are favorites of his as well.
My daughter would love this! Big Rapunzel fan ?
It’s a tie between Elsa and Ana
Eliabeth Garris says
Moana! On a countdown for our Disney World trip now!
My kids think goofy is the best, especially his laugh!
Plant killers anonymous! We’d love to see the show! We were so close last year but I decided Carleigh was too small. No excuses this year, she’s a Disney fanatic
Rachel Elizabeth Ware says
Moana is definitely our favorite! And Elsa and Anna will have a special place in our heart forever
Ariel is our favorite (5 year old daughter)!
Shana Gordon says
My boys love Buzz Lightyear and Woody!
It’s ALL about Anna over here!
Brooke S says
We are late to the Frozen game so Elsa is definitely the favorite right now. We can’t seem to “let it go” ?
Elsa all day for big sister and little bro loves some Maui….you’re welcome!
I’m thinking of moving my almost 3 year old out of his toddler bed because he likes to sprawl out and I don’t think he sleeps well in his little bed any longer. Did you purchase a double or a queen for Thomas?
we purchased a queen! well, technically we stole our queen guest bed and put it in his room. but we wanted to make sure he has a queen for when we have guests stay over!
Disney is always a win. Thanks for the chance to go.
Forgot to leave kids’ favorite Disney character — Elsa!!
We love Disney! My sons favorite is stitch and my daughter has no choice but to love Ariel haha
Rae B Bush says
Elsa or Anna hands down. . .
My kids are 7 and 9 and there are still nights when they don’t stay in their own beds. LOL. Also, the kids recently stumbled across The Proud Family. So the Prouds are our favorite Disney characters of the moment.
I wish Disney would revive this cartoon series and bring it back.
corey harris says
Our girls are obsessed with Rapunzel, and Merida from Brave!
Merida is a hit in our house these days!
My boy loves Mickey!
Cute top! Check out Express (outlet) for black mini and pencil skirts!
Laura Anderson says
We love Mickey around here!
Goodness, do you have to pick one character?! Totally depends on the day, we rotate between Dory, Anna, Elsa, and Rapunzel 🙂
Julie Baldwin says
Topo Chico. Use that instead of La Croix. Either the one with Lime or the one with Grapefruit will be amazing.
