This week has been insane. I mean there’s no other way to really describe it. If you have ever sold a house then you probably know what I’m talking about it. But anyway, today is Friday…back to reality and back to work for me. Also it’s time for the Friday Five! At least some things in life are a constant…here we go!!
ONE. So last Friday I showed my home for the second and final time and got my first offer! I countered that offer and they countered back and then we finally came to an agreement and I sold my home!! Since then I have been sorting things, making Goodwill drops, packing things and even already got rid of a few big furniture items. My inspection is Saturday so fingers crossed that everything goes well there and then I think I just have a termite inspection (from my usual company) and then more packing! So far this whole process has been fairly simple but still super stressful, I can turn anything into a stressful situation, and I can’t wait to be done, moved and settled into my new space!!
TWO. I went to the pool yesterday and just floated. It was magical and much needed. I looked at apartments all day Wednesday, packed all Thursday morning and then I just needed a break. So I floated.
THREE. I have to say that I was pretty excited about Nordstrom sale coming up, says every blogger, until I got the actual sale catalog in the mail and then I was just disappointed. There is nothing that is just jumping out to me. I did see a cute Kendra Scott necklace? Hmmm…we will see.
FOUR. I got a new facial serum from Volition Beauty that I am pretty excited about. It’s their new Snow Mushroom Water Serum and it’s supposed be super hydrating and will help minimize pores. Lord above knows I need both! LOL! It’s also vegan, gluten-free, hypoallergenic, cruelty-free and noncomedogenic. I will have a full review coming to the blog soon. You can check out a review of some of their products they sent me here!
FIVE. I was going to to go the movies this week but chose to just stay home and find something to watch. Did you know that Once Upon a Star was on Amazon Prime??? OG Katherine Heigl right there y’all. And I, Tonya is on HULU. I freaking LOVE that movie!! And I watched Set it Up on Netflix, it’s one of their original movies and it’s so good!!!
So there you have it, this week’s Friday Five. Completely random and a little bit weird but that’a about all I have time for this week. Maybe next week I will be a little more productive around here! LOL!!
What have y’all been up to this week??

I’m always interested in what people read and watch! I think floating in the pool sounds like something I want to do right now! :)
Joanna @ Everyday Made Fresh says
Congrats on selling your home! I am sure that all of that involved is super stressful! Can’t wait to see what you do in your new space. Sometimes a day in the pool doing nothing is wonderful!
Lisa Favre says
I love your Friday Five! And actually, today, you’ve reminded me that I wanted to get more into reading… maybe I’ll pick up a book this weekend!
I need to just go float in the pool. That sounds relaxing!
Good for you to take a much needed relaxation break at the pool! Good luck apartment hunting.

Congratulations on selling your home so quickly, that’s terrific. I actually finished reading a book this week.
Karen Morse says
So much to look forward to! I’m sure you’re very excited about moving to a new place despite being tired from packing and all that. I hope everything goes well with the inspection too.
Congrats on selling your home! Well, maybe not quite sold, but that is exciting to have gotten an offer. Hopefully the inspection goes well!
Sara Welch says
I want to go to the pool and relax with a book. That sounds pretty nice.
Chubskulit Rose says
Congratulations on the sale of your home! Good luck in packing and moving. Never shopped at Nordstrom before.
Angela Ricardo Bethea says
Nothing beats a nice break at the pool to cool yourself from the hot summer heat. Totally due for a break sometimes.
Hope you had a great week! I am so envious of your reading time.
I went to the movies with my mom last weekend and saw BOOK CLUB. Pretty good movie. I liked it. Haven’t been to the movies in YEARS!! Haven’t been to the pool in forever either xD I’m more of a hermit than anything. I’ll leave the house if I have to. Otherwise, never gonna happen.
Thomas Paul says
First time I know about Friday Five. I like it!. It’s a good way to look back at your week and highlight the fun stuff. Nice post!
Anosa Malanga says
I envy you. I guess I need some time to just float and relax too. Last week at the office was so exhausting. Need to have some time to breathe. Never checked the catalog yet, glad I did not since there are no big deals.
Carol Cassara says
Wow! That’s definitely good news and I hope everything goes according to your plan. It’s always such an exciting time when you go house hunting as well. That serum’s making me curious! I’d love to know more about it.
