Five on Friday//Around the House


Happy Friday! I’m linking up with DarciChristinaApril, and Natasha for 5 on Friday and Karli and Amy for oh hey friday.  For today’s post, I’m highlighting five items that I’d like to purchase for our home.

one // Recently at a friend’s house, I saw a cute picture that displays her family’s names and important dates. After a quick Etsy search, I found this picture (among tons of other variations of this print) that you can easily customize with your special dates and favorite colors. I’m thinking about getting a print with our important dates…we desperately need more pictures on the wall. I can no longer use the excuse that we just moved in (that happened almost eight years ago…and we still have lots of blank walls in our house), ha!


two // I’d love to have a mudroom/entryway that looked like this Crate and Barrel room, but since that’s not the case in our house, I’d still like to have the Leigh Wall Mounted Coat Rack. Our small mudroom holds our washer and dryer, a utility sink, and a small closet. We have a wooden bench where the kiddos sit to put on their shoes, and right above it, there’s enough space to hold a coat rack. It would be much nicer to keep our coats there instead of in the closet under the stairs in the living room.


three // We are (finally) slowly starting the process of turning Harper’s bedroom into a big girl room! Yay! It’s such a big milestone to be getting rid of her crib in exchange for a double bed…I can’t believe my baby is ready for this! Yikes! I’m planning on doing navy and coral in her room, to match the light blue/grey current wall color. In a Pinterest search, I came across a variety of cute navy and coral rooms, including this one from Centsational Girl.



four // I’m loving these cube bins from The Land of Nod and especially love the handy tip from iHeart Organizing. She uses one bin per kiddo and tosses in their toys scattered throughout the house. It is their responsibility to put away the toys in the bin. I could really use this…



five // While visiting my friend at her new house, I was also inspired by her adorable monogrammed towels for each of her four kiddos. Harper and Will are getting too big for the baby towels I’ve been using since they were born (plus, the towels are getting just a little bit worn out, ha!). I’m on the lookout for the best place to purchase monogrammed towels for each kiddo (without breaking the bank). Any suggestions? I love these from The Company Store, though they are not the cheapest.



So there you have it! Five different things I’d like to do in our house.  What exciting items are you in search of for your house?

Have a super weekend:)





  1. Checking etsy for monogrammed towels! Hopefully you can find cheaper ones on there. Love that picture with special dates.

  2. Oh my goodness, I love all the things you posted. I’ve wanted one of those special dates printables for a while. Maybe this is a good reminder to finally get one!!! Enjoy your weekend!
