Five

Finally jumping back into a Five on Friday post, lots of random stuff I'm throwing out there today.


Kenley's birthday is fast approaching and I'm trying to get back in the party planning groove.  Her party is more of a playdate than a par-tay, but I still want to decorate and make it cute.  One, out of fairness since Ashlynn got a giant themed bash, and two, because I enjoy doing this stuff.


I have still been spending a decent amount of time up in the sunroom, now that it's finally cleaned up.  I still want to organize and declutter a bit more and make some things just prettier to look at, but hopefully it'll be in 'show off' status soon and I can post a tour of how I store all my different supplies.  I also decided, since Ashlynn only seems to nap on preschool days, that I should move her arts and crafts stuff into the room too.  It's the perfect quiet activity and then it's kept out of Kenley's way.  I already brought up her easal and plan to move her table and chairs from her room and set up a mini station for her.  Don't you love when one project just leads right into another one?

That means we need an ikea run.  More things to add to my list, like this, this, and this.  Hopefully we can fit in a run before Thanksgiving!  (and if not, I'll just order them through my amazon prime - seriously amazing!)


Loving this sweater, it's like the type I could wear everyday... super casual, but still appear (somewhat) put together.  And right now you can get 25% off with code SHOPNOW.  **wishlisting

Lastly, why is printer ink the equivalent of unicorn blood.  I swear I dread using my at home printer because I'm always afraid of running out, which it seems we always are.  If anyone has secrets for buying non-shady non-rip off ink cartridges let me know!!


Have a great weekend!!

  1. Our closest Ikea is about 3 hours away, with good traffic. I've taken to buying Ikea products on amazon too because shipping from ikea.com is so expensive! I can't wait to see Kenley's birthday play date.

  2. Ummm, I had NO IDEA that IKEA was sold on Amazon! Our closest IKEA is over two hours away, so it's usually a day trip. THANK YOU!! :) I hope you have a great weekend!!

  3. Luckily ours is under 30 minutes, but it's still a "trip". It's pretty much impossible to run in for one thing that store just sucks you in, so I still always have to plan around naps and meals and keeping two kids well behaved - sometimes shopping online is worth ditching that headache!

  4. I'm not sure if every product is listed, but I know the majority are sold on Prime too, which is awesome!

  5. That's amazing! I try to shop on IKEA's site, but they don't ship half of their stuff! This may be trouble for me!! :)

  11. 1. I didn't know you could order Ikea stuff on Amazon! Amazing. 2. YES to the printer. I swear my old printer was ALWAYS out of ink. NO matter how little I used it. ALWAYS. It was awful. We recently got a new one and it seems to be better about ink now!

  12. Ikea, it was like $15... can't beat it. Though, don't use chalk board pens on it! I learned the hard way

  13. Does the regular chalk erase easily or does the whole thing need an extra coat or two of chalkboard paint?

  14. Can't believe Kenley is almost ONE.. Poor second kids getting the shaft. :)
    I too didn't realize, Ikea on Amazon..?! Are prices comparable..?!

  15. Sometimes. I noticed some things costing the same, others costing more. However, if you live really far from an ikea, it might be the same as the gas mileage to pay for the premium through amazon. We live fairly close to one, so I'd probably try to wait until I head to the store, but nice that the option is available without having to pay ikea's high shipping.
