High Five For Friday, Mom and Jewelry Deals!

1// Today is my Mom’s birthday! I’ve been blessed with a Mom who is kind, caring, beautiful…and really funny. She’s loved by many, many women who have been encouraged by her life and example. Happy Birthday, Momma!


2// Speaking of birthdays, I’m enjoying the shopping perks that come with birthday months! I always combine my $5 Charming Charlie birthday reward with their BOGO clearance jewelry sales. This year I scored a delicate necklace set and a fun key chain for less than $2 out of pocket!


3// Rain has brought a few cooler evenings to South Carolina, giving me hope that Fall is on the way! I’m waiting for a little cooler weather before I make chili, but I made our first tomato soup and grilled cheese meal this week. Could there be a more comforting meal?


4// Over the weekend I pulled out You’ve Got Mail…I totally forgot how much I love that movie (it’s on the list of my top 5 TV romances). It’s sweet, funny and romantic – and so quotable! Tell me your favorite line in the comments…one of mine is:

Kathleen Kelly: Why did you stop by again? I forget.

Joe Fox: I wanted to be your friend.

Kathleen Kelly: Oh.

Joe Fox: I knew it wasn’t… possible. What can I say, sometimes a guy just wants the impossible.


5// As I was writing this post, my sister called just to say hi. We hadn’t talked since Monday and that’s a pretty long time for us! She made me laugh and totally brightened my evening after a long day. Thanks sis, for providing my 5th H54F! ❤

Have a lovely weekend!

  1. So much goodness in this post! What day this month is your birthday??? Work has been crazy hectic since I got back from vacation so I feel out of the loop on everything blogwise:( And happy birthday to your mom!!! I love birthday coupons. . .tip for next year from the Green Fashionista–Tory Burch sends a $50 coupon during your birthday month if you sign up on their website, which basically makes a pair of flip flops free! I’ve never watched You Got Mail. How that happened, I don’t know. And we’re only in the upper 60s this weekend in KY, so I’m breaking out some fall fashion!

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and we need a catch-up chat soon!



  2. I love tomato soup and grilled cheese. I’ve had the urge to make some homemade soup lately, but it still feels a little too warm. Hopefully cooler weather is on the way for both of us. Love your new jewelry and look forward to seeing how you style it. Hope you have a great weekend!


  3. I quote that movie all the time. This week I was using “you need quiet while a hot is singing?!” Adds some fun and laughter when things are a bit tense during after school homework with my girls.


  4. Happy Birthday to Denise! I have enjoyed getting to know her through her blog. And I love that necklace you scored!! I was actually thinking of grilled cheese and tomato soup for this evenings meal…you are right, we have brains that are eerily similar. I love it!! My favorite line from You’ve got mail is the one where Joe says to Kathleen, Annabelle is my aunt, Matt is my brother. We are the American Family. And i seriously lust after her book shop. That would be my dream job!!


  5. Happy birthday to your mom! I have found so much encouragement through her blog even though we’ve never yet met in person. That is a beautiful photo of her.

    Cooler weather has been slow in coming here to northern New England. A soup meal just hasn’t sounded good to us (although I did make a grilled cheese and tomato bisque meal for my dad this week; he’s 92 and always cold!). But today is cooler, so there’s hope. Looking forward to doing some fall baking!
