Welcome to High Five for Friday – hosted by me, Tif, and Della! Come, read up on what we’ve been up to this week and get to know some amazing bloggers down below!

GUESS WHAT???

We have a new hostess joining Tif, Della and me!

Say a big welcome to Becky! She blogs over at byBMG and we are just so excited for her to join us! If you haven’t had a chance to meet Becky before, you should know that she has awesome style! Her pattern mixing is always on point. And she knows has to rock some Lularoe! She’s a wife, mommy to 3 boys, and is a teacher. She’s one busy lady!

Welcome Becky!

Who had a great week??? I did! Let’s dive in.

1. Last week’s Easter felt learning popped up over and over again…. in a not so pleasant way. Elizabeth squished a caterpillar and when I said “oh no! Now it won’t be a butterfly!”, she promptly replied “but then Jesus will wake him up, take him to heaven and THEN he can be a caterpillar!”.

So there.

And then she declared she “didn’t want to be put to death…”. What do you say to that??

2. There was a pretty big hair chop on Sunday! It went shorter than I asked for, but who cares. I’ve had my hair this short before and NEVER liked it. But this cut? I’m loving it!

#chambray shirts are my wardrobe staple.

3. I’ve been in the planning/day dreaming phase of a Capsule Wardrobe for at least a year. It really all started with my first and second 30×30 wardrobe challenges, but lately I’ve been serious. And this weekend I plan on heading to the mall, alone, for a few hours just to try on clothing. I’m not planning on restricting myself to a certain number of clothing, but I want a wardrobe that’s nice, fits my current life, and is mixable. And if I plan out what that “wardrobe” consists of, I can shop for those exact pieces and be done. I don’t expect my wardrobe to be complete for a LONG time! I want to prioritize which pieces I need to get first, and then save up for the rest. But it all really begins this weekend!

4. Another Date Night in the books! I just love that we’ve set aside Thursdays for our usual time together. And that it just so easily comes together. Last night we went to a new Indian restaurant. It was our second time there and we were excited to give it another whirl! We, unfortunately, didn’t listen to our server when he recommended going down a level in spice. Our medium was REALLY spicy! We’re regretting that decision this morning.

5. Here’s a story to restore your faith in humanity! I’ve been researching a double stroller for several weeks. You might remember that we borrowed one from a friend a few weeks ago, decided we needed a double stroller, and since then I was on the hunt for one. Last week on Thursday I bought a used one on FB Marketplace. I met her, looked at the stroller, and hauled it home. On Saturday we take it out for its maiden neighborhood walk. My husband almost instantly notices that one of the seat backs is broken!!! WHAT???!!! How did I miss this?

He says that we’ll just have to eat the money lost, or try to sell it ourselves. I figure it can’t hurt to text the seller! And she immediately replied back, apologized, and offered to give me my money back! How glorious! She didn’t HAVE to do that… after all, I missed the fact it was broken when I gave it the initial look over. But she offered to make it right. Isn’t that nice?? And what a relief for me!!

How was your week?? Can’t wait to hear all about it!

    I need to do a capsule wardrobe myself. I think it would make dressing so much easier! That seller was great about refunding you the money for the broken stroller. And yeah for date nights! It’s definitely important to get in quality couple time! Have a great weekend!

    • Katie @ Cup of Tea says:

      That’s my feeling about capsule wardrobes too. It would just make life easier. I’m basically wearing the same 3 outfits over and over again anyway… and it would be easier to replace something if I take the time to find my favorite stuff… but we’ll see!

      It was SUCH a spicy date night 😉 HAHAHA! Love that! And I’m so grateful I am liking the shorter hair. It’s nice to have something I actually like! Hope you’re having a great week!

    • Katie @ Cup of Tea says:

      HOORAY!!!! Glad you’re joining us 🙂 And thank goodness for kind people, right? I was hoping she would be rational!

    I love that Becky is your new co-host!! She’s one of my favorites. 🙂 Your haircut is so cute on you…and I’m glad the too-short cut was a happy ending! 🙂

    • Katie @ Cup of Tea says:

      One of my favs too 🙂 And hair always grows back. But I’m just so happy I actually like my shorter hair cut for once!!

    I love your hair! I think you would enjoy Capsule Wardrobes. I immensely enjoyed mine! It forces you to be more creative with what you own. I am glad that the stroller lady reimbursed your money. Faith in humanity is definitely restored. Have a great week!
