Five Loves on Friday!


Happy Friday!  Hope you all have enjoyed a fantastic week!  Ours has gone much differently than I could have ever imagined this time last week!  Last Friday Jason set out to repair a leak in our bathroom sink.  One thing led to another and we decided that while the bathroom was torn apart it'd be a great time to go ahead and update it, replacing our vanity/sink, toilet, and more!  While today's 5 will have much to do with tackling this home improvement endeavor, I'll be saving the big reveal for later! Stay tuned for that! ;)  Meanwhile, let's get to some loves, shall we?

1.  I'm continually in awe of my hardworking hubby! 


Jason is always willing to learn any skill to provide for our family's needs.  I'm so thankful to have a husband who gladly rolls up his sleeves and get his hands dirty to fix things, rather than taking the easier route of picking up the phone and opening a wallet to hire someone else to do it.  I love that he will do whatever he can to take care of our home, and ultimately our family, in every area of life.  I praise God for him continually!



2.  Princess is taking over laundry duty!  


Princess requested that I teach her how to do laundry this week.  Can you hear me cheering from here? ;)  It sure does make my heart happy when my girls look for ways to help out, especially with those seemingly never-ending chores!



3.  Painting with Michael Bublé
Anyone else have the iHeart Radio app?  I love it!  I've been really enjoying my Michael Bublé station this week while painting the bathroom.  Good stuff.



4.  Cuteness on Clearance!
One fun part about redoing a room is shopping for fun accessories!  Even bathrooms need a touch of cuteness!  Check out these adorable hand towels that I spotted on clearance, paired with an additional 30% off Kohl's cardmember discount code I received this month, plus free shipping!






& some festive fancies...




My upcoming bathroom reveal will include more cutesy accessories ...some with a lit'l Disney flair! :)



5.  Bath & Body Works Sale + Additional Coupon Code!
Oh, how I love Bath & Body Works 75% off sales!  When I went to share some of my fave buys with you guys I noticed that several of the items I bought are now either backordered or just plain out of stock.  Guess I'm not the only one who's been snagging some deals!  They do still have a few shower gels deeply discounted though, one that I ordered that's still available is Hawaii Passionfruit Kiss.  I've never tried it before, but it sounds like a vacation in a bottle ...how could I resist that?! ;)


Regularly $12.50, on sale now for $3.00! Pair that with the code below it brings it down to just $2.40! SUCH A DEAL!

If you plan on doing any shopping on their site between now and 2/22/15 be sure to use the coupon code:  F144791  to receive 20% off sitewide + a FREE signature collection travel-size item!




Have a fantastic weekend, everyone!

  5. haha I love...well the bathroom is a mess let's keep going! Might as well! And, yes that scent does sound like vacation in a bottle. Ahhh laundry, never ending. I've got my fingers crossed Aria will want to take that over some day. Although I certainly never did as a kid, although the few times I tried I ruined many things...sooooo I don't know if it would have been a help.

I would love to hear from you today!! I enjoy reading each and every comment I receive. (I do moderate them before they're published. Gotta keep it family friendly! ;)) My preferred means of replying to you is via email, so please make sure you aren't a "no-reply blogger". It's sad when you take the time to leave a sweet lit'l comment, but I'm unable to reach you with my appreciation. If I can't reply to you through email, I will reply directly below your comment, right here on this post. ;)

Thanks for visiting! Have a fabulous day! :*)
