Five on Friday.

Friday, March 13, 2015

Happy Friday! For some reason this week I have been super confused on what day it was. I'm blaming it on the fact that I seem to have come down with a cold on Tuesday and my head has been kinda fuzzy ever since. But either way, I'm glad to finally see on the calendar that today is Friday!
Hello weekend!

And without further ado, here are my favorite finds from this week.

Favorite Girl Scout Cookie Recipes.

I came across Picky Palate's favorite girl scout cookie recipes and was instantly intrigued and in love. I LOVE Girl Scouts Thin Mints so these thin mint gooey bars are right up my alley.

IKEA ice cream.

We went to IKEA this past weekend to pick up some picture ledges and a chair for Bubbie and I make it a habit to get ice cream whenever we go. Seriously, $1 ice cream is the best deal in town (and quite delicious if I do say so myself). I love Mason to the moon and back but... mama doesn't like to share her ice cream. So, we got Mason his own ice cream this time and to say he was excited and liked it would be the understatement of the year. Just look at that smile!
I might also mention that the bottom right picture is my new screen saver on my phone :)

Daylight Saving Time.

I saw someone post this on Facebook on Sunday and I thought "YES!". Amen. Can we spring forward at 2pm on a Friday instead of 2am on a Sunday? That would make me SO much happier!


I got my very first VoxBox in the mail last week and let me tell you, boy was it exciting to get a package in the mail for FREE! I'm already excited for my next one!

Disclaimer : I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Bloggers, I know you will appreciate this!

And with that, Happy Friday!


  1. Seriously I am having such a hard time adjusting to this Time Change- so glad it's the weekend. Hope you have a great one!

  2. Haha that last one is hilarious! Oh yeah I've started getting noah his own cone at McDonald's too... I'm not good at sharing lol! Have a great weekend!

  3. Omg. The last one!! I DIE. It's sad (and all too true). And $1 ice cream looks way more delicious than $5 ice cream you get everywhere else.

  4. Ikea AND ice cream?!! I can't think of anything better!!! :) Hope you guys have a great weekend!

  5. We've never had ice cream at IKEA, but obviously that will change during our next visit!
    You received the same VoxBox as me. Wasn't it an AWESOME one?! Our Tide Pods are almost all used up. And I love the John Frieda spray!!
    As for the last one. Yep. And it's so hard to explain to Scott and non-bloggers. They just don't get it…

  6. IKEA is one of my favorite places but I've never had the ice cream.. or any of the food! I am far too busy buying everything else!!

    I am messed up on my days this week too. This week flew.. especially because I had Monday off not feeling well. I hope your cold is getting better!! I must try that cookie recipe!! Have a great weekend!

  7. Those cookies...yumm-o!! And that last picture has me cracking up!! Have a great weekend!

  8. A few years ago my father in law bought an outrageous amount of girl scout cookies and my mother in law was finding every recipe she could to use them in. She would love that recipe!

  9. Girl Scout cookies in a dessert?!? Mind blown! I love Influenster, what a great VoxBox!!

  10. Oh that ice cream cone looks DELISH! Now I'm totally craving one, ha ha! Was it such a mess by the time Mason finished his cone? I'm dreading the day Mia gets a real, full sized cone of her own, ha ha!
    DYING over that last picture! DYYYYING!

  11. $1 ice cream at ikea? I know where I'm going!!

    I got a vox box too! I need to do my review! Thanks for the reminder !!

  12. Ahhh, I want some of that ice cream too. Do you think that Mason would share?! :)

  14. Look at that ice cream! This makes me so excited for our new Ikea to open this fall! And you have to tell me about the Influenster box. How does that work? It looks awesome!

  15. LOL! I love #5. Yep yep yep!!

    Hooray for IKEA and hooray for an awesome Voxbox!!! That's some fabulous stuff! :)

  16. Swear to you, I thought Thursday this week was Wednesday, pleasant surprise when I actually got it straightened out. :) Hope you are feeling better. Mason + ice cream = best pictures!! Plus now I've got to try Ikea ice cream!! Free box of goodies.. Awesome!! What's that all about? (Is it something you'll share here?) I absolutely had a thought the other day about the great ladies I've connected with since blogging and thought is that weird I think of them as friends..?! :) Happy Friday, friend!!

  17. HAHA! That funny ecard ;)
    We are going to Ikea tomorrow, and they better have ice cream because I so want to get Scarlett a cone now (last time we went it wasn't working).

    Hope you had a great weekend friend! Xo

  18. lol at that last one! I think you are trying to kill me with your soft serve ice cream. I want some.

  19. He is loving that icecream cone! Liam & I always share, but he is adamant that I "don't eat it all done", ha!

  20. I love those 2 ecards - so true!! Hahaha :) Mason looks like the happiest kid in the world with that ice cream :) Love it!

  21. Those are the cutest pics of Mason with the ice cream:) Speaking of which, did you EVEN see Chick-fil-a's newest creation?! I justed saw it on my email. It's a frosted lemonade. It combines their lemonade + icedream. I need one ASAP.
