Five on Friday

After about a month break from Five on Friday, I'm glad to be back!



[ONE]
Monday was a SAD day around here...I ran out of my beloved Aromatique: The Smell of Christmas.  It's my absolute favorite smell.  all.year.long.


[TWO]
These are the kinds of love notes my husband leaves me...

The best part of waking up... is a fresh pot of coffee!

[THREE]
This week, I got the best deal!!!  I have been wanting a 7X10 rug for my living room.  I came across a beautiful rug at Target marked down from $159 to $79.  I was really happy with the clearance price so I snagged it. Low and behold, when I checked out, it rang up for $44! How awesome is that?  One day in the future, it will look nice on some hard, dark, floors!  A girl can dream!



[FOUR]
Look who's standing strong...

She'll be ONE next week! ONE???!!!

[FIVE]
Earlier this week, I mentioned changing up the Happy Hostess Link Party.  I'm looking for a few more blogs to host the link party every other Monday.  If you would be interested in helping with this link party, let me know by sending me an email.

    I LOVE it when I pick something up at Target and it rings up less than what it's marked! If I'm on the fence about something, I usually scan it to see if its marked down any more than the price sticker says, just to see if that makes a difference in my decision. Your rug is a major score!

  7. What an awesome deal on that rug! I am forever on the hunt for inexpensive pretty rugs for our house now that we have cork floors throughout the downstairs! Good job!

  10. We do love them! They are a bit softer and warmer than traditional hardwood and easy to maintain! What's really incredible though is the fact that my hubby made it through the installation process- he was ready to throw in the towel and call a pro halfway through!

  29. Okay, Leslie, I think we need to be friends now. Just reading your "Welcome" blurb made me laugh- story of my LIFE judging/laughing at/swearing I would "never" do XYZ...then God in his hilarity puts that right in my path! We have two girls- one who just turned 1 and is tottering around much like it looks your is. I love that stage- so precious! Anyway, I see a lot of similarities in our journeys so I just wanted to say hello. Following you over on Bloglovin now! Sarah @ thejellyjars.com :)

  30. Sarah, thanks for stopping by! Yes, it's true--we do things we said we'd never do! Funny thing is...it's just what I've always wanted and never knew it! :) I'm headed over to check out your blog. Thanks for following along! Hope you enjoy it!
