the Sowell life's Friday five...

1) I ordered my first pair of TOMS right after Christmas, and they finally came in this week! How cute are these?! And, I have to give credit where credit is due... a HUGE thank you to Abby for helping me pick out my first pair!! (And yes, I really wish she would start blogging again! Pretty please??)

2) So, I went to the dentist on Wednesday for a cleaning, and apparently I have the worst teeth on the planet. No joke. You know it's bad when they say they'll send you a "treatment plan". Yep, panic sets in! But, the Mr and I decided we will take it one step at a time. I mean, who really gets 6 crowns in the same year... much less 4 at the same time. Not this chick! Thankfully, nothing is hurting (knock on wood) and the reason for the work is to prevent any issues that might arise in the coming months/years from all the previous work I've had done over the years. I'm thankful for great insurance, and my dentist from a few years ago, Holly, who is walking me through all these steps. #iwonderwhyidespisedentalappointmentssomuch
At least I got a new travel care pack after my cleaning!

3) I finally learned how to pull the new ride in the garage in my bay without having to back up and try again. (It only took about two weeks!) Yes, this is a major accomplishment in my book. My Accord was easy breezy to wheel in and out, and with any new vehicle you freak out because hello, it's new! This thing has so many bells and whistles that if you get close to something anywhere near the outside of the vehicle, it goes crazy! And I'm happy to report, no bells went off when pulling in last night. #finally

4) We have a semi free weekend, and I might be a little excited about this. Don't get me wrong, I love entertaining and having a weekend full of plans, but sometimes you just want a weekend that's lived in pajamas. Am I right?! We have a few things that needs to be finished before the weekend is over, but I can guarantee that all those things can be done in pajamas. #neighborsbeware

5) Y'all the neighbor behind our house STILL has her Christmas tree up. Better yet, it's still LIT! I haven't driven down that particular street to see if any outside decorations are still up and lit, but really it's Jan 11th. Time to take down the tree... and if you can't bare to take it down, at least unplug it!

***Thanks to the handy dandy high powered zoom the Mr got me, you can even see the ornaments on the tree.***

And now on to more important things... our front door looks bare now that all the Fall and Christmas decorations are put away. I have a really cute Mardi Gras wreath, but is it too early to put it out? Any suggestions on what I should do until it's time for pretty flowers, ferns and springtime wreathes?

Y'all have a wonderful Friday, and an even better weekend!!



  1. I will be in yoga pants all weekend!

    I'm also in need of something for my front door. Maybe I should troll pinterest...the only problem is, I'm not crafty!

  2. hehehe love the Mrs Kravitz zoom lens, lol If I had my way I would have our tree up until the end of January AND it would be lit. I like the tree up from Black Friday to 1/31....I get so sad when the tree comes down!

  3. Love the Toms! I want a pair, but think my feet would look funny, so I haven't done it yet. And I am with you on the dentist. I'm not kidding. I am an awesome teeth brusher, but apparently, I have bad genes, and my teeth SUCK. I despise the dentist, but I have to go twice a year, speaking of...time for an appointment soon. I have learned though, I always get a second opinion. AND I stay away from the younger dentists. I think the technology they have is a little to extensive. I like my guys old. Dentists I mean.

  4. Love my toms!! Wear them everyday. I have HORRIBLE teeth too. Working on my 3rd root canal and 8 th crown over the years! Not fun. :(

  5. I totally understand parking the new vehicle! I am still getting used to mine and I am so worried I will hit something or scratch it.

  6. Great blog! I'm a new follower from the Friday Hop. :) Feel free to follow back at Our Facebook page is super dandy! ;)

  7. that quote about the pajamas is hilarious! So me.
    P.S. you & your husband are so cute!
