High Five for Friday 02.06.15

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 Heather from My Little Happily Ever After.  Heather and I like many of the same things, such as beaches, reading, and subscription boxes (you all know my weakness for subscription boxes). She blogs about a little bit of everything, and her posts are always interesting and fun, like this post about London and Ireland.   Her H54F post from last week include Harry Potter World, which I love!!!

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

1(a). I found the Red Velvet Oreos!!!  These bad boys have been teased on FB for months.  Some claimed they were a myth, but I believed. . . and here they are!  They are absolutely delicious. I hear that they’re hard to find in some places, so get them while you can.

1(b). I also found the mint skinny jeans I’ve been looking for since 2013!  Mint skinnies were big when I was pregnant in 2013, but I didn’t want to shell out for a maternity pair.  So I waited to look until after I was pregnant and couldn’t find them anywhere.  Then I looked last spring/summer and couldn’t find them either:(  I had given up hope until I walked into Old Navy with some Super Cash on Saturday and there they were, in all their pastel glory, right inside the door.

2. Saturday was a me day.  Chauncey watched Kane while I relaxed.  In addition to the Old Navy stop, I got an 1.5 hour massage at Massage Envy (thanks to some giftcards from my sweet hubby) and had my hair trimmed.  I love Kane with all my heart, but it’s hard to take a toddler anywhere. . . so it was nice to be able to do all of these things without having to worry about what he was getting into.  

3. I had lunch with some of my law school friends on Wednesday. Having lunch with my law school friends is probably the the only thing I miss about law school.  It was nice to catch up with everyone.  

4. We are closing on both house transactions next week (so thankful and blessed), so we’re trying to pack everything up. Since I hate to cook, I started in the room I used the least–the kitchen.  Some of you all have asked that I share my packing tips, so I did a post yesterday about how to pack dinnerware in a very inexpensive way!  No one can pack up a house like someone who used to live in a dorm.

5. Kane loves to watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.  This week, he started bringing the remote to us and saying “Icky”when he wanted to watch it.  It’s too cute!

    BEing able to run around without a child sounds like a good way to spend a Saturday. I've been in need of a good massage, definitely before my Birthday next month. So excited you found your mint skinnies!! I've been meaning to find the Red Velvet Oreo's but haven't been searching too hard, I need to change that. Thanks for featuring me this week!!

    Your "me" day sounds absolutely perfect! Also, wishing you great luck with all of the house stuff next week! Can't wait to hear more!

    I totally feel you on the law school lunch! I went to law school as well but decided not to practice after I finished. I think my law school friends, and of course meeting my husband!, were some of the best parts about law school. Besides that, I have no desire to ever go back haha

    HAHA Sometimes you just have to believe, and hold on to faith that Oreos will arrive! And yes to the mint jeans! I actually bought a pair in 2013 when I was just barely pregnant, but, stupid me, never wore them. I did see all the pretty colors at Old Navy recently too! Can't wait to see you wear them!!

    I was so disappointed because my Old Navy did not have ANY colored skinny jeans 🙁 I used my super cash on some polka-dotted pants and things for Olive instead. So I'm still on the hunt for some great skinnies. Good luck with all the packing. Kane can watch lots of icky while you pack 🙂 win-win for everyone.

    Aww that was so sweet of your hubby. I am glad you found your dream pants. I found my dream cobalt blue pair awhile back but honestly they are more for tall women so they sag a bit. Rachel xo
