Five Loves on Friday!

HAPPY FRIDAY, friends!  Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof! ;)

1.  Platt Family's Day Off
Monday we all played hooky and enjoyed a fabulous family day together!  It was amazing to have a plan-free "bonus day" with the three people I adore most in the world!  *happy sigh*

2.  Congratulations to my dear friend Lindsey on the birth of her son!
Welcome to the world, precious baby boy!  We praise God for your safe arrival!! XxOo!

3.  Everything's Peachy!
I have been in love with my Market Peach candle from B&BW!  It makes me feel like Spring actually has arrived, even though it's been in the 30's here this week!

4.  Kate Spade Inspired Storage Boxes
This storage sweetness caught my eye on Pinterest this week and sent me swooning!  Kate Spade storage boxes currently run a whopping $54, but Christine at First Home Love Life created these look-a-like cuties for a fraction of the price! LOVE it!

*Wanna pin this tutorial?  Please click through the link above and do so directly from the source.  Thanks! ;)

Now available to watch FREE!  It's absolutely worth your time!  Check it out!

*This is a 30-minute documovie.  This is NOT the Hollywood version of "Noah" starring Russell Crowe.  

I do NOT endorse the movie featuring Russell Crowe as "Noah" due to it's unbiblical content.

Thanks so much for visiting today!  Have a fabulous weekend!

    1. Me too!! I'm so glad to have spotted them on Pinterest this week! I hope to recreate a few to enjoy via that fabulous tutorial! ... Thanks for stopping by! Have a fabulous weekend, Pamela! (:

  3. I love scented candles too! I think I have one in each room of the house! Happy Friday! :)

  4. I am so excited that you posted the Kate Spade inspired storage boxes! I got the Ikea boxes a few weeks ago and now I will have to check out this tutorial to jazz them up!

  5. I am going to make those storage boxes! It gives me a reason to go to IKEA!

  6. I love scented candles and I love peaches...I may need to go snag one of these candles!! Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. Totally love those kate spade inspired boxes! I'll be sure to pin it to my dorm decor Pinterest board so I can make them for my storage shelving! Thanks for commenting on my post, I would never have found you otherwise!


  8. I love how you all played hooky on Monday! Those Bath & Body Works candles are my favorites, especially when they are on sale and I love those Ikea turned Kate Spade boxes, too cute!

  9. I look forward to having hooky days when Aria is older! Take the day off and have a spontaneous mommy and me day or family no plan day like you guys. I use to always skip my birthday from school, although most of the time it fell over Spring break anyways so I got to pick a day during the month instead. Little things like that that I remember growing up! I'm sure your girls will look back on those hooky days fondly! And, a three day weekend is always better than a two day weekend =)

  10. I am a big old sucker for B&BW candles and I am OBSESSED with those Kate Spade looke alike boxes! I was just saying yesterday that I needed more ikea storage boxes! Thanks for sharing!

  11. Thank you for stopping by my blog! That box tutorial is awesome. Definitely could come in handy in my new place!

  12. Oh my gosh, where has that Mickey Cookies and Cream brownie been all my life?! You KNOW that will be making an appearance at my house this weekend! I LOVE that you and your family played hookie together - so fun! Happy weekend, friend! xoxo

  13. Ooooh I might need that market peach candle in my life soon! Have a lovely weekend!

  14. A family hooky day? Pure genius! Love it!

  15. Family hooky day sounds so fun, do glad you all got to spend time together. That candle sounds like it snella SO good, I love B&BW candles! Have a great wknd!!

  16. I had been very anxious about seeing Noah and then my aunt posted something similar so that's a bummer. The family hookie day sounds fabulous and I love the DIY boxes! All of my Ikea boxes are left in their plain state, but if I ever get time I might have to make them cuter!

  17. Love a fun "bonus day" with family - for some reason, those always feel a little more special than the planned ones :) Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!!!

  18. That candle looks delish. As a Georgia girl, I am all for anything peachy :)

  19. Those Kate Spade boxes are how much????? That's why I love DIY! I might have to because those are really cute!

  20. yeah to a hooky day!!!

    I so want those Ikea boxes very cool.
