Five Things Friday

The Crown. Who's watching/watched it? It's my new favorite. I watched all 10 episodes of the first (and only right now) season in 3 days. Yes, 3 days. Lots of late nights. But I couldn't stop. The only down side to binge watching it, is that I have to wait until November for Season 2. I'll probably watch Season 1 again, I loved it that much. I've always been so intrigued with Queen Elizabeth and the royal family and this show seems pretty close to accurate. I would pause throughout to google and read more about something that happened or one of the characters and it seemed right on with what I read on the internets. And you know the internets never lie. Either way, fascinating stuff.

Well, gone are the days of cute little birthday parties for my sweet little girl, WHO WILL BE SEVEN IN 3 WEEKS! After getting a couple emoji-themed presents for Christmas she became emoji-obsessed. So when I asked her what she wanted to do for her party, she of course said she wanted all things emoji. I've managed to get away with limiting the emojis to the cake, cookies and invites but today she asked me why the plates and napkins didn't have emojis on them.

Today I am painting Harry's room! Ugh. I've been dreading it all week. I am excited to have it done but getting there is going to be painful.... We decided on the dark blue/green color thinking it would disguise dirt better. Harry is filthy and could care less, so his walls are already pretty dingy just after a year of living in our house. But now that I'm getting ready to paint I'm slightly regretting not doing a gray color. I like light and airy and I'm hoping this color is not too bold and dark. Once its done its done though because I won't be painting it ever again. Next time it will be painted is when Harry's old enough to care and then he can paint it himself.

I just finished this book and it was so good. Heartwarming and sweet but also with moments of suspense. If you are looking for a new book, I highly suggest you read it! I don't think you'll be disappointed.

I resolved in the New Year to shop less. But Maude is making it SO. DANG. HARD. Dying over all their new arrivals. All the new shoes are killing me, especially all the Dolce Vita sneaks. I think my favorite would have to be the top left style. I would wear them every day. But, I'm not going to get them. I'm going to practice a little self control. Crying all the while.

I am so thankful it is Friday. T.G.I.F. Truly. Thanking God it is Friday! It has been a super long week. And I'm ready for a little R&R. Hopefully I get Harry's room done today so I can actually veg out some this weekend.



  1. We have ALOT of gray walls in our home, so we painted our 7 year old sons room this exact color, but our paint was called Silent Night. I LOVE it. It's not too dark at all. We did one wall with white wainscot on the bottom, & it looks really good. Good luck, & have fun :)

  2. Kids room must have vibrant colours, pictures and extra importantly there must have enough space and sunlight in their rooms. Kids have a very short attention span. Kids require effortless organizational systems that they can learn to use. Click here

  3. Kids love entertainment, and you could throw a surprise movie celebration. Send out birthday invitations with movie reels on them, but clearly indicate that you are throwing a surprise party.
