Five Loves on Friday


Happy Friday, friends!  I'm getting this post put together much later than usual, as I was feeling under the weather yesterday.  Better late than never though, right? ;)  Hope your week has been wonderful!  If not, the weekend is so close you can almost reach out and grab it, so hang in there! ;)  Okay, without further ado, let's get to those lovely Loves, shall we? ...

*This weeks Loves are listed in chronological order. ;)


One  //  A Bargain on Beautiful Bedding
I spotted this 12-pc "luxury bedding set" at Kohl's originally $350.00 on clearance a whopping 80% off!  Then used a 30% off coupon I had, bringing the entire set down to just $48.98!  On top of that I earned $10 Kohl's cash.  So, essentially it was just under $40 before tax (& after those bonus Kohl's bucks), making the twelve pieces basically $3.33 each!  Ha!  Just thinking about that makes my heart smile!  It is incredibly soft.  It's safe to say that between the bargain and the ample pretty pillows I'm super pleased with my purchase!

*The photo is taken from Better Homes & Gardens site as it's completely out of stock at Kohl's and elsewhere.


Two  //  New Art for Springtime



I picked up this cheery cuteness at Hobby Lobby to add some pops of color to our home for spring.  The "Home Sweet Home" pallet was half price and the "spring shop" decor is all 40% off this week, so I got great deals on everything!  


Also while browsing the spring shop goodies, Little One was immediately drawn to this wooden banner featuring her big sister's initial which also looked as if it were written in Princess' own hand.  It didn't take much pleading with me to approve this purchase, because I just thought it was too sweet and thoughtful a request to deny. ;)

Isn't Hobby Lobby so much fun?  I could spend all day (and all my money) there!


Three  //  Celebrating with Friends

Pizza partying with some of our faves // Gift time - Princess baked her friend brownies for his birthday.  :)

Our dear friends, the Grahams, made an hour drive up to spend a day of their Spring Break with us this week!  We had a great time celebrating our "Friendiversary" and their awesome boy's birthday too!  We absolutely adore them and were pleased as punch that they chose to spend part of their break with us! 


Four  // The Most Delightful Disney Dessert!


If you've been around here for a bit you probably know that my friend Nikki often brings a scrumptious treat along when her sweet family visits.  This giant Disney dessert she ordered from Eileen's Colossal Cookies was almost too cute to eat ...almost!  

I don't think I've seen a more magical cookie in all my days!


Five  //  Draper James Goody


I've been swooning over the Southern sweetness at Reese Witherspoon's Draper James shop online for a while now and had yet to purchase anything.  When I spotted this super cute serving platter at half price and had a promo code for free shipping, I couldn't help myself.  The big beautiful box it arrived in made opening it feel like an occasion in itself!  I can picture serving up everything from sliders to cupcakes on this beauty!  It truly is the little things that brighten my day, even a simple daydream of serving up sandwiches to loved ones on a pretty platter. ;)  

*This platter is now out of stock, otherwise I'd link the loveliness here.


Thanks so much for popping by the blog today!  I hope the weekend ahead provides plenty of reasons to smile!

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! :*)
