5 on friday

I'm linking up with the 5 on Friday girls again this week and I'm pretty excited about the things I came up with this week!  Enjoy!

I've recently gotten into watch fashion.  I've got to wear a watch at all times because I feel lost without one.  I used to always wear silver watches with a cuff band, but I've really gotten into gold, and who better to look to than Michael Kors!  I really love the tortoise watches, but not the price tag.  Last year I fell in love with the oversized tortoise watch, but at $250, that wasn't going to happen.  I stumbled on a jet set look a like at Target for $14.99 which beat the $225 price tag.
Two weeks ago, Christina at Carolina Charm featured this Michael Kors chain link tortoise watch and the Target look a-alike and I was SOLD.  I had already been shopping Target in hopes of them selling it, but had no luck.  However, I hadn't thought about browsing online.  I went straight to their website and found that it was only sold online.  Birthday money well spent on this one.  I love it!

This pretty much speaks for itself.  YUM!  We went on Monday and I got my first one of the season.  It's a good thing we don't live that close to a Krispy Kreme!

I have been wanting this wreath for some time and was so happy when Jason told me to order it for myself as his anniversary gift to me.  I ordered if from bobsidoodle on etsy.  I love how it turned out.  I actually ordered a larger size, but she accidently made me the smaller one.  I was pleased with how this one turned out so I didn't bother with the hassle of getting a different size.  Allison was really great to work with if you're looking for a fun wreath!

I posted about Bryce's first day of school on Wednesday, but didn't link back to his first day of school last year for comparison purposes.  I shared this comparison picture on instagram yesterday.  I just love to look back and see the differences in a year!  You can follow me on instagram @gwhitlock.

 I cleaned out my jewelry box the other day and decided to sell some of the gold pieces that I don't wear anymore.  I know some people hold on to everything, but some of the pieces just weren't my style anymore or they weren't significant, like my monogram ring with my maiden name initials.  However, rediscovering that ring really made me want one of these gold monogrammed necklaces with my married initials.  Of course I had other plans for the money we got from selling the gold so I guess I'll have to hold out for a while before getting one of these beauties.

When I saw that picture of Bryce yesterday, I had to laugh about how Keagan's wearing those shoes all the time now! I may have to check out those watches, but my wrists are so small that I'm scared it wouldn't fit. And Target doesn't have anyone that can take out links. Tortoise watches are really cute though!

I think about you every time I hear mention of pumpkin anything. Glad you can start enjoying it again!

I wanted the Michael Kors Tortoise chain watch too and then saw the Target one. Can't beat the price tag!

Love your five. I hate watches on myself but love them on other people. What a deal on the Target watch. You can hardly tell a difference, but your back account can ;)

Oh my gosh, I love everything about this post. I think I might need that watch...and the donut too!

Liz @ Fitness Blondie said...

Oh girl, the second watch you posted is absolutely beautiful. And holy crap how much Bryce has grown, WOW!!!

PS: first time stopping by your blog from the link up, love it! :)

Oooh I love that necklace? Where can I get one?

Leah said...

Love it all! I've never heard of Pumpkin Donuts at KK but I'm going to have to go now. I love all things pumpkin! I need that wreath and I'm heading to Target this weekend for that watch!

Brownie's World said...

Those pumpkin donuts are highly addictive! Luckily, the closest KK to me is by the International HQ for KK so I don't go that way often. Your little boy is a handsome young man. Have a beautiful weekend!

Love the watches! I have the tortoise MK one and it goes with everything! Best buy ever! TGIF!!

I saw a monogram necklace similar to that recently on a Very Jane or Groopdealz. Keep your eyes peeled for one them as they are deeply discounted there!

I need to try that pumpkin spice donut, YUM!

Katherine said...

How did I not know about the pumpkin spice donut??? The wreath is really cute. I'll have to try and recreate.
