Five on Friday 8/22

Today is a very happy Friday because as of 1pm, we are officially homeowners!!!!  To say that we are excited would be a major understatement :)  As much as we've loved city living, we are sooo ready to start this next chapter.  We will be spending the day in Michigan for the closing and then to do some cleaning at the house before heading back to Chicago for our very.last.week.  Craziness.

I'm going to keep my five short and sweet today so let's get right to it!

Frozen Mint Lemonade Slush
Just yum.  Doesn't this sound delicious?  I have big plans to try it out next weekend... how refreshing it will be after the big move.  And the fact that we can drink it outside on our porch... AHH!


Pinterest Hover Button
Because I'm sure that's a technical term!  I've been wanting to add one of these to the blog and I came across this super easy instructional post by Jana at Life Could Be A Dream.  Well I haven't actually tried it yet, I can say that it looks super easy :)


J Crew Vest
I am not happy with J Crew.  I ordered the vest that everyone and their mother seems to be trying to buy and then two days later received an email that it is back ordered until the end of October and they cancelled my order!  Such a bummer.  One of these days, the vest will be mine (I hope)!


Inspiration
Done :)

Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. That drink looks delish! It is not too hard to add the pin it button. I did it a while ago (couldn't tell you how...) and if I can do it, so can you! I also blogged about that vest today and noticed it was on back order :( Hoping to win the Tory Burch crossbody!!

  10. I would be livid if they cancelled my order!! But you know I thought it was a textured or wool material and it's just the puffy material, so I'm not too sure I even want it anymore!! I can't wait to see the photo of you drinking that drink on your back porch!! Have a great weekend!!

  11. Congrats on officially being a home owner! Also, I bought the vest yesterday and they seemed to have all sizes available! I ordered a small and it has already shipped! Maybe try again...

  13. um, what the shit? they cancelled your order? how rude - i thought everyone knew they were backordered? you can still order them now and it says backordered. i think it is super cute and looks amazing but honestly if i bought it, it would be the most expensive thing in my wardrobe, and i already have a vest, so... no.
    YAY HOMEOWNERS!! congrats :) I'll have a drink or two to celebrate :)

  15. Cancelled your order?! Rude!!! I'd be mad. On a brighter note, congratulations!!! This next chapter of your life will be so exciting. That drink looks delicious and definitely post a picture of you on your new porch with it! :-) Thanks for sharing the instructions for that Pinterest button thing, I may have to add that. I hope that you have a lot of fun celebrating this weekend!! :-)

  18. Booooo that JCrew cancelled your order....why can't they just send it to you when it's available?!!? Ultimately annoying! The vest is great though...you could put it with ANYTHING! I never thought to add mint to lemonade either...but I think I'm going to have to try it!

    ReplyDelete
  19. That sucks about the J Crew vest!! Hopefully it will come back in stock for you! That slush looks delicious for the end of summer! Also I'm not good at HTML/blog things and I managed to get the pinterest button on my images so if I did it, you totally can. haha Have a great weekend!

  24. Did you try eBay for that vest? Chick-fil-a has a new frozen lemonade I bet would be equally good with some vodka added, too. Happy weekend! :)

  25. That drink looks amazing and I'm excited to come join yall for one on your porch soon! Happy Weekend lovebug!

  26. Congratulations on your journey to home ownership!! Can't wait to see pictures of your house. That lemonade looks delicious. I'm sorry about your vest - seems like JCrew would be in overproduction mode since it's so popular. Hope you have a great weekend.

  27. Congratulations on the house! Such a fun, new adventure! :) And that drink looks like the perfect way to celebrate - YUM! :)

  29. Don't worry girl my mission this weekend is to find a similar (hopefully cheaper) sub for that vest! Congrats on your house that is such exciting news!!!!!!

  30. How rude of J Crew to cancel your order!! Guess it wasn't meant to be. Although I'm sure you still really want it!! Congrats on the house!!! Now starts the fun part, decorating!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Woohoo!!! Congrats on the house! I ordered that vest too but I never got an email canceling my order but I did get one saying it was backordered. That's weird! Enjoy your last week in Chicago!

    ReplyDelete
  32. OMG that makes me sooo sad about the vest. I really thought about ordering one too. I wonder if they sell it in store? I am gonna hit up our J Crew and see if I can find one haha!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh no! That's a bummer about the vest! I am wanting it but I know there's no way right now. And yay for being a homeowner! Have a great weekend! xo

    ReplyDelete
  34. YAY! You're officially homeowners! That's so exciting!! :)

    Woah woah woah...they CANCELLED your order, even though it's only backordered for a few months? It's not like they're completely out of stock and not making anymore...that's so dumb! Hopefully you DO get it one day friend! How frustrating!

    And I'm definitely going to try that easy tutorial...I've wanted one of those for months, but it looked too difficult to do.

    Have a great weekend!

  35. If you're really desperate I know the pleasant prairie outlets carried it a few weeks ago. You could always call first :) happy closing!,

    ReplyDelete
  36. Enjoy your last week in Chicago - make sure to hit up everything you've wanted to there that you haven't had a chance to get around to!! :)

  37. They cancelled your order… say what?!?!? Do you have an actual store near you? The outlets near me had plenty of them (ps they run big.. I had to get an XXS!

  47. CONGRATS (again) on the new house! I'm really interested to see how you like the transition from city to not-city living. Every once in a while I decide we should live somewhere else, but I just can't pull the trigger!
