Five on Friday

Linking up with Darci, for 5 on Friday!


(You'll have to listen closely because I'm going to tell you a secret...)

This little guy is potty-trained. And I'm scared to say it out-loud, because I think I may jinx it.

For reals though, he is. We've now had 7 consecutive days of no accidents, in big-boy undies all the time (except naps and at night, for which he wakes up dry 98% of the time and asks to potty right away!). I'm shocked, honestly. But clearly he was ready, and we are so SO proud of him!


Loving this bathroom reveal from Emily Clark. Aside from being totally adorable and perfect for her two little boys, she used the same vanity & lights that we did in our bathroom, and a contrasting wood mirror. I've never felt so validated in my design choices, ever! 


This little boy gave his mom & dad (our best friends) a HUGE scare on Wednesday night, when he managed to get out of their fenced-in backyard, then got hit by a car and ran away. So many people were praying & looking for Quigs, and my stomach was in knots all night worried about him.

The next morning, a long 12 hours later, they found him wandering around, perfectly healthy except for a few cuts. 
Needless to say everyone was relieved! SO happy he's home!


The new Erin Condren Planners are here! I've talked about how much I love my planner here and here, and I can't wait to purchase another! Erin listened to all of her customer feedback, and made some small tweaks to make this edition even better than the last! My current planner runs through December, so I have plenty of time to decide. Plus I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I win the super-duper Erin Condren giveaway!


Real Housewives of New Jersey & Keeping up with the Kardashian's are back. My two summer guilty-pleasures. LOVE these shows.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!


  1. Way to go A on the potty training!!! That is BIG news!! Liam is still soaking his diapers at night and during nap time so we are a little behind y'all, but I'm shocked at how non-stressful the whole process has been! Hallelujah!

    And both of those shows are now on my weekly cycle of trash TV too. I just can't help myself :)

  2. That bathroom is def something to be proud of! I love it!

  3. Love the vanity! So cute!

    So sorry to hear about your pup. Glad to hear that he's okay!

  4. Cingrats on the potty training! We too potty trained this past week and have had no accidents. So I will keep my fingers crossed for the both of us.

    I'm a new follower. I would love for you to come visit me at http://www.houseofathousanddreams.com

  5. Looks like this season of Housewives is going to be a crazy one....but wait...Aren't they all??? I'm hooked on it!! :)

  6. Hi Jillian! I loved Emily's bath reveal too & yours looks beautiful too! So funny - I purchased a light above my breakfast table last year and then Emily added the same one to her kitchen and I felt like you - like my choice was validated - she has such great style!

    Yay for your little guy :)

    I'm a huge Housewives fan too!

  7. OH MY GOODNESS, way to go, A!!! Seriously, that is absolutely wonderful! If you have any tips or trips that you really think made a difference, I would love to know! We haven't attempted anything just yet since we're going on vacation at the end of June and my parents are coming down to stay with J. Just didn't want to start potty training and then us leave town / throw things off. Fingers crossed that Jackson is a potty training rockstar like A! Hahah!!! This is BIG NEWS, friend!!

    Secondly, how did I miss your fabulous bathroom????????????????? It looks like it's out of a design magazine! Love it!

    Thanks so much for linking up again, friend!! Hope you guys had a wonderful weekend! Jackson sends a big high-five to A for his mad potty training skilllzzzzz. ;)


Thank you for your comments! I read each and every one of them!
