High Five for Friday 01.30.15

TGIF and welcome to High Five for Friday!  Caitlin at Coffee with Caitlin, Della at Della Devoted, Katie at Cup of Tea, and myself want to welcome you to the link-up–thanks for stopping by!

This week’s featured blogger is Becky from BYBMG.  Becky is a middle school teacher, wife, and mommy, with two boys of her own at home and one on the way!  Her blog is full of fashion and life in general. Recently, she became a Jamberry consultant, so hit her up if you need any:)  Becky and I have been going through this whole house mess/roller coaster together, and she announced on last week’s H54F post that they sold their house (see, I told you we were going through it together)!  Oh, and be sure to check out the Tuesday Talk link-up that she co-hosts.

Now let’s recap my favorite things about the week:

1.  My Kindle has really been put to use over the last week, especially last weekend.  I read Marie Force’s Fatal Scandal, and have otherwise been reading Kathleen Brooks’ Women of Power series (the 1st one is currently free).

2. We finally got a good snow!  I wish we would have gotten the snow around Christmas, but I was excited to see all 4″ of snow anyways.  Kane really enjoyed playing out in the snow, and even had to eat a handful of it.  And he wouldn’t keep his gloves son.

3. I’ve fallen asleep way early several times this week.  On Saturday night, I was asleep a little after 9 p.m.  I know, I’m clearly old now, but it was fabulous!  Sometimes you just need to catch up on your rest.

4. I’m so happy that Justified is back on TV!!!  I’m a little sad that it’s in its final season, but I can’t wait to see how it ends.  I’m from eastern Kentucky, so the show really hits home.

5. Target clearance for the win!  Seriously, though–if you haven’t checked out Target’s clearance, do yourself a favor and stop by the store.  Be sure to use the Cartwheel app coupon for an extra 20% clearance clothes and accessories.  On a quick lunch run to Target (in an attempt to de-stress from the whole house-buying situation) I was able to pick up this gingham shirt I’d had my eye on for the past couple of months for $12.86!  I snagged the shoes for less than $7 a couple of weeks ago.

Speaking of Target, we have 2 in Lexington, so of course I hit up the other Target that evening to check out their clearance too.  I had Kane with me, and the only time he wanted me to put him down was to get a big bag of chips by the register.  Most kids cry for toys, but mine wanted Lays.  He had to take them in the restaurant we went to afterwards, so there he was dragging a big bag of Wavy Lays through Roosters.

    Happy Friday! Thank you for hosting! Your little guy is so cute in the snow. Ours didn't like touching it so much but he wouldn't get off of the sled. Catching up on sleep is the best! Every now and then an early night can do wonders. We are all getting old 🙂 Cute outfit! We have to download cartwheel! We are always hearing about extra savings. Have a great weekend!

    I haven't seen Justified since season 3! I was borrowing the seasons from some friends & that was the last one they owned. I miss watching that show. I might have to buy them myself.

    I LOVE Target! I never even thought to look at the clearance stuff and then the cartwheel app. Genius. I love the cartwheel app for everything else but didn't know they gave extra discounts to sale stuff! Score!

    I have snow envy!! I'm hoping we get a little snow so Olive an play in it, but I don't think it's very likely. LOVE that gingham shirt! I tried on several pairs of shoes today and didn't find any that I loved mostly because I seemed to be in between sizes. Olive was a dream baby in Target today and we had such a good time. Maybe she saw that I was finding tons of cute stuff for HER?!?! Hope you have a great weekend 🙂

    I love Becky, and it is always nice to have someone know what were are going through so I am glad she is featured. Kane and Lays that is too cute, I need to hit up my local Target for my 5 soon to be 6's Birthday gift. Girl, you have a lot going on so you need all the rest you can get, honestly I need to be getting to bed early haha. Rachel xo

    Thanks!!! Definitely download Cartwheel. I think I've saved $40 since I started using it (the app keeps track). Aww… Kane may be different in the snow next year, though. I can't wait to take him sledding and see what he thinks.

  7. Tif @ Bright on a Budget

    I can't imagine not seeing any snow:( I have that issues sometimes with shoes when the store doesn't carry a 9.5 (like ON), because then a 9 is bordering on too small but the 10 is bordering on too big. Yay for no meltdown in Target!!!

    Such a great post as always gorgeous! I love hearing recaps of your week!
    Oh and I am SO jealous of your target clearance finds- did you hear that Target is closing all its stores here in Canada!?!?! I am so heartbroken! haha looks like ill be coming over to your side of the border for some target shopping in the future!!
