friday five.

Happy Friday and Memorial Day weekend! It's been a long week and I am excited to spend some time with my family who will be in town tomorrow. I'm linking up with April and sharing five things on my mind:
ONE: If all goes as planned, we are set to move into our new house next weekend. I am pretty excited about finally having a yard. It already has a little garden with grapes, blueberries, and blackberries. H has the green thumb in our house and he wants to plant some veggies and herbs. Charleston friends: what's your favorite thing to grow in your garden?TWO: We have a ton of visitors scheduled for the next few weeks. My dad, sister-in-law and niece are coming into town this weekend. My grandparents and mom visit the next weekend, then my father-in-law, and then two of my best friends visit in June! I'm so excited for everyone to meet Violet and stay with us in our new home :)THREE: It's warming up in Charleston and I've been nursing a sore throat and cough all week, so I made some fruity popsicles using fresh fruit and my favorite Evolution Fresh juice. Just mix a bottle of Defense Up Juice with 1/4 cup of pineapple juice and some fresh cut strawberries. Freeze in a Popsicle mold and enjoy!FOUR: After spending a small fortune on nesting baskets for Violet's nursery, I found a similar style at TJ Maxx online for a fraction of the price. Thankfully I was able to return one of the PB baskets I bought and replace it with the more affordable version.  


FIVE: There's some great Memorial Day sales going on this weekend -- here are my favorites:

Anthropologie // 20% off sale
Banana Republic // 40% off use the CODE: BRSUMMER 
BaubleBar // free shipping code MEMORIAL20 and save 20%; use the code MEMORIAL25 for 25% off 3 items; or the code MEMORIAL30 to save 30% on 4 or more items.

  10. I cant wait to see some pictures of the new house! That sounds so exciting! Isn't it always the case when you find something you like that you wind up finding something very similar for cheaper down the road? I hate that! At least you were able to return your PB baskets! Have a fabulous weekend! xo

  12. How exciting to move into your new home! Congrats!
    I had my first garden last year and I'm giving it another shot this year. One of my favorite things was my basil plant. I used it fresh and also dried a lot to keep on hand. I also enjoyed my jalapenos. They seemed to grow really well.
    On another note, I'm glad you shared the info about the baskets at TJ Maxx. I've been wanting to find some like those.
    Enjoy the holiday weekend!
