Five on Friday

Happy Friday! I hope you’ve had a fabulous week. Here’s what my little family and I have been up to lately.

O N E – I talk about Susie a lot, I know. But she’s my baby! I’ve been letting her sneak up on the bed in the mornings while her Dad is working (sorry, Mike). We’ve still been taking out evening walks on the greenway and we’re both loving it. It definitely helps her get her energy out and it’s good exercise for me. Two of my little brothers went with us Wednesday night and I loved having them with me, it was nice having someone to talk to during our walk. I miss living with those kiddos.
PS. I’m still trying to convince Mike we need another puppy. Hopefully the pup will make its debut soon.


Susie Post-Walk. Don’t let her fool you. This dog was STILL crazy even after a three mile walk!

T W O – We were supposed to move into our new house today, but of course, things happened and we aren’t. Our buyers asked for an extension because something was up with their loan process. SO ANNOYING. Especially since we have packed up pretty much everything in our home. I have no living room, no couches, and it’s so depressing coming home every evening. Our new closing date is set for the 15th, we shall see if this time it actually happens. We need all the prayers & good vibes we can get! I sure hope this next week fly’s by. Who knew buying a home would be so complicated?

T H R E E – I am loving essential oils here lately. My mom got me hooked, she uses them all the time. I thought she was crazy at first, then I actually tried them and I love them! I use one drop of Frankincense essential oil mixed in my face lotion in the evenings. It has an antibacterial benefit to it which makes it great for acne prone skin like mine. I love mixing a drop of Lemon essential oil in my water once a day. If you do try this, do not drink it out of a plastic cup or bottle, it will eat away at the plastic. I learned this the hard way. Lemon essential oil has so many benefits. I like to drink it because it serves as a natural detox for the body. It’s known for its purification qualities. Love this stuff. I love to use Lavender essential oil for it’s calming qualities in the evenings and I also put a drop on my temples before bed time. I can tell it really relaxes me and gets me ready for bedtime. I love it! Mike has trouble sleeping at night and I thought diffusing this would help him, but it didn’t at all. Do any of yall have tips for a better sleep at night??


F O U R – My latest Netflix obsession is One Tree Hill. It’s SO good. I’ve had a lot of friends tell me I needed to watch it so I finally bit the bullet. Mike watches it with me too! Sometimes it’s a little cheesy, but I still love it. And I think Mike does, too!!

F I V E – Fall is THIRTEEN DAYS AWAY! I’m craving fall for some reason this year. I think it’s because all summer its been 90 degrees or higher. I painted my first fall wreath and it’s hanging on the door already. And I’ve had three PSL’s. I just can’t help it!

Pumpkin spice everything!!!!!:

  1. Your dog is so cute! My husband has a really strict no dogs on the bed the rule, he’d kill me if I let Tuna on our bed haha.

    Also, I may need to look into these essential oils! I have really acne prone skin too so I usually can’t use oils as moisturizer. But maybe if I just do a little drop it will be ok!

    1. Thank you! She’s a mess, she was Mikes dog before we got married. I LOVE that name, Tuna! That’s super cute. I want to name our new puppy (if Mike ever lets me get it) beans, it’s sad I’ve already got the dog named and I don’t even have it yet! Susie sheds SO bad, that’s why he can’t stand her up on the bed.

      I see people all the time using all these facial oils and I want to try them but I know my face will break out. I can use the essential oils and my face does amazing, I don’t know what it is about them especially since they’re an “oil” that they don’t break my face out. Maybe it’s because it’s the purest form? I only use one drop because they’re so concentrated. Let me know if you try them out!!
