I'm linking up with the girls for another Five on Friday. This week, I thought I'd share five recent finds that put a smile on my face.
I know it's snowing in most of the country but tomorrow's high in Orlando is 84. It's never too early to think about Spring in Florida. I saw these adorable jelly sandals at Baby Gap and couldn't pass them up for Blaire.

I spotted this ottoman in Target and it was love at first sight. My cart was already full but I was determined. A sales associate spotted me lugging it in my arms as I pushed my cart and came to my rescue. I'm sure I was making quite a spectacle but it was the only one and I didn't want to lose it. (Last week, my sister was at HomeGoods scoping out these adorable chairs for her dining room. There were two and she was sitting in one. A lady came over, scooped up the other one, and marched up to the cash register with it! Jill said it took all she had not to kick the woman for stealing half the pair. Who does that?!)
Valentine's Day is coming up and while it's not a holiday I typically celebrate with anything more than a card or a heart shaped pancake, I just love these sweet bowls and mugs from West Elm.

Another heart adorned find - this one from the HRC store! They came out with this Sweetheart t-shirt just in time for Valentine's Day. A cute shirt for a great cause - sold. 100% of every purchase goes to HRC’s fight for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality.

Mine should be arriving in my mailbox shortly. I can't wait to wear my shirt and show my support for ALL love this Valentine's Day.
I'm drawing a blank on a fifth find. Too bad this isn't Four on Friday. How about a funny story from my goofball kid instead?
Blaire's recently seen Cinderella for the first time. She asks to watch it on occasion now, but she prefers we skip to the scene where the birds and mice make Cinderella's dress, then the ugly step-sister's rip it off her and ruin it, and the Fairy Godmother arrives to save the day and send her off to the ball, where she meets Prince Charming and lives happily ever after. Ignoring my feminist complaints with the story line for the moment, Blaire finds these 20 minutes or so entertaining and but is always very concerned with Cinderella's dress. "That's not nice!" she yells at the stepsisters and "Why are they doing that?" We try to discourage her from watching it as she gets so worked up about it. Anyway, last night Brian and I are sitting on the couch (not watching Cinderella) with Blaire and we start tickling her, which she usually gets a kick out of. This time, she yells "DON'T RIP MY DRESS!" We about died laughing but she was so serious. We should probably switch back to Tangled.
