Five on Friday!

Happy Friday! We’ve had one heck of an awesome week — packed out with fun events every night! We also have an awesome day ahead with Caroline as we have Kindergarten orientation & meet the teacher this afternoon. 

1. Ice Cream Bucket List

We checked off another ice cream shop from our summer ice cream bucket list — Mr. K’s! We had a pizza party at Caroline’s new school on Tuesday night and decided to surprise the kids with ice cream afterwards. Caroline loaded her soft serve up with sprinkles and gummy bears, Thomas went with crush M&Ms, Matt got a milkshake and I was in absolute heaven with my soft serve generously topped with peanut butter! One more shop to check off the list this weekend to complete our ice cream tour!

2. Bathroom Tray

I recently snagged this cute little tray for our powder room and although it’s been two weeks and Matt hasn’t noticed, I think this little space looks so much more organized now! Also, I love JR Watkins Room Spray and have a different scent in each bathroom. This room has the Aloe & Green Tea spray and it’s amazing. However, my absolute favorite scent (which I’ve only been able to find on Amazon) is Ocean Breeze – it is heavenly!!! My love for sea scents run deep and this Nest candle in Ocean Mist & Sea Salt is my favorite ever.

3. Summer Outfit

I have worn this dress so much this summer and needed to notify y’all that is now on clearance! I paired it with these slip on sneakers that I patiently waited months for to come back into stock — and they are finally restocked in all sizes! 

4. Party in the Park

On Wednesday we met some friends at Romare Bearden Park for an outdoor summer concert…and popsicles! It was hot but SO much fun and the kids ran their little hearts out chasing each other across the lawn. There are still a few more Party in Park Concerts left in their summer series (every other Wednesday from 6-9 pm) and I highly recommend it for a fun summer activity.

5. Back to School Round Up

I can’t believe we’ll start making lunches next week for school. We’ve always had lunch provided at preschool so this is going to be a new chore for us. Caroline is excited to make her own lunch but I am already stumped on items to stock up on for our lunch box! Anyway, in honor back to school week, I thought it would be fun to round up some of our purchases for the school year!

    1. Felt Letter Board: For first day of school pictures, of course!
    2. Bentgo Box: I cannot tell you how many people have raved and recommended this Bentgo box to me. When it went on flash sale earlier this week I finally snagged one. I love how it contains 5 compartments, is leak-proof and durable!
    3. Headphones: Caroline’s Kindergarten school supply list contained headphones and these are our absolute favorite kid headphones. They have good sound, are comfortable and fold down for easy storage.
    4. Sandwich Sealer & Decruster: Finally picked one of these up for homemade uncrustable sandwiches!
    5. Stackable Bentgo Lunch Thermos: Our stainless steel, leak-proof lunch box for hot food. Comes in tons of colors too.
    6. Kindergarten, Here I Come!: We’ve been reading this book for months  now and I love it! It’s so cute.

That ice cream sounds great. I've been making lunches a few years now and it's always hard to keep things fresh and interesting for the kids.
