High Five for Friday 06.26.15

TGIF, H54F-ers!!! Caitlin at Coffee with Caitlin, Della at Della Devoted, Katie at Cup of Tea, and myself want to welcome you to the link-up and the weekend.  We made it!!! 

This week’s featured blogger is Laura from Snippets & Snapshots.  Laura is from across the pond. She is a lifestyle blogger who started out by taking a picture a day everyday for a full year.  She did a post recently about her “reverse bucket list” and I found it to be an interesting approach.
Now, let’s recap the week:
1.  We celebrated Father’s Day in a very low-key way, and it was so nice!  This was the 1st weekend I’d been home in Lex for over a month and a half.  Chauncey loved his gifts, which were new bourbon glasses, a Liquor Barn giftcard, and a Game of Thrones toy-thingy.  We did dinner out at Joe B’s in downtown Lexington that night.  Kane was wild [per usual] so this was the best pic we got. My husband is a wonderful daddy to Kane, so it’s nice to have a day to celebrate that.
And it was National Wear Your Lilly Day! You can see a full recap of my outfit and accessories here.
2. Let’s talk about the Kate Spade sale.  So, I have been stalking the “Beware of Sharks” tote for a while now, waiting for it to go on sale.  But once it went on sale, I notice there was a pouch/clutch that had the same design and it was love at 1st sight.  I decided  to get the clutch instead of the tote, but was waiting to purchase because I knew that the extra 25% off sale items happens pretty frequently.  I waited and I stalked.  I looked at it Monday night, and still no sale.  I looked at it Tuesday at lunch, and not only had the sale hit, but my clutch was sold out. . .I quickly called Kate Spade customer care, and they were able to locate one at their Chicago Oak Street store for me, which was shipped for free.
I did order these earrings off of the website, which came in the mail today.  I have them in silver and have often wished for a gold pair.  They were $19 + 25% off when I ordered them on Tuesday. They’ve now jumped up to $25 = 25% off:(
You can check out the sale here, and use code SETSALE for the additional 25% off of sale items through July 7.  
3. Since I was home for the weekend, I did alot of cleaning, organizing, and decluttering!  It felt amazing.  Clutter is such a source of stress for me but I’m a messy person by nature.  It’s a catch-22.
4. Kane loves the cats.  This is him and Giz having a heart-to-heart on the stairs this morning.  He’s also started counting the stairs as he goes down them.  
5. Tina from Go Big or Go Home and I organized a Lexington bloggers meet-up for this past Thursday.  Tina is a H54F regular, so when we found out we lived in the same place, of course we had to meet up!  Her friend Amy, who also links up, came and brought her adorable baby Poppy. Alexis and Courtney, whom I met at the Dillard’s Fayette Mall event a couple of months ago, also attended.  Several people couldn’t make it, but we’re hoping to turn this into a bi-weekly meetup.  If you’re a blogger who lives in the Lexington, KY (or surrounding area), let us know!  We’d love to meet you!
I hope you’ve had a wonderful week!
