Friday Five

TGIF Fridays!  I hope everyone has had a good week.   The weekends are becoming my favorite thing because it means I won't be solo parenting!  Kyle's travel schedule has been insane lately so I'm soaking up any and all time I have where there is another adult in the house to help me out.

Instagram's New Algorithm 
Have you all seen this?!! Instagram announced this week that they are changing their algorithm and instead of being chronological you'll start seeing your feed based on likes and comments, meaning feeds more relevant to what instagram has decided you like.  I find this so annoying! I like the whole instant part about it and I like seeing things as they are happening.  I don't want to see pictures from some big celebrity event three days later because it's what instagram thinks I might like.   You can see more information here on their blog and a here is a petition that people set up to keep instagram the way it is.  Snapchat was already becoming my new favorite so it looks like snapchat is going to be my new instagram (@eastcoastnat)

Andy Cohen on Snapchat 
Speaking of snapchat, Andy Cohen just joined and he's hysterical.  Last week he and Anderson Cooper were snapping their road trip and I was loving it.  That's basically my celebrity dream date right there but throw in Hoda and a big bottle of wine and I'd be in heaven.  His name is @andysgotthe411

Starburst Jelly Beans 
Obsessed. I've already taken down one bag this week. These are my favorite Easter candy. Not just any jelly belly though, it has to be the Starburst original.  I'm so happy I can usually only find them around Easter.  

I just randomly picked up this hand soap at Target this week because we needed some and it's my new favorite.  The scent is amazing and I've decided I need to make some sort of grapefruit basil cocktail this weekend because it seems like it would be a delicious refreshing drink.  

This Kitchen 
As we start to talk about renovating our kitchen I've been saving little kitchen ideas and details here and there.  I love the subtle gray on the island here and for some reason I'm loving this style of pulls this time around.   Also that round table and chairs might be perfect for a little nook in our kitchen.  I wish I had somewhere to add those windows- so much natural light!

Happy Friday Friends, hope you all have a great weekend!

Linking up with April 


  1. What??? That's super annoying about Instagram. I'll sign the petition...I dont want that. I feel like you'll miss seeing posts from your friends then since they probably aren't getting 1,000's of likes. Stupid.
    I need to add Andy Cohen to snapchat. I adore him!

  2. I'm right there with you on snapchat > insta. I'm really only using instgram for chatbooks at this point!

  3. That kitchen is gorgeous and those countertops (swoon!).

  4. I'm so bummed about the Instagram changes! LOVE that kitchen though!

  5. Ooh I'm intrigued by the new Instagram... wonder how people will like it!? I'm sure that hand soaps smells amazing. Happy weekend!

  6. I had no idea about IG - annoying! I'd rather it go the other way - the less likes/comments go at the top so I can actually see the people I know instead of Justin Bieber (how embarrassing) and the Housewives (also embarrassing). I'm right with you on Starburst jellybeans - already on my second bag!

  7. I will definitely sign that petition, how annoying! I always hated it when FB made big unnecessary changes just as I got used to things, so it makes sense that IG is doing it now too since they own it. Boooo! Gimme all the Starburst jelly beans, my favorite time of year for candy! Happy Friday <3

  8. Totally just added Andy Cohen to my snap! IG is so annoying that they are changing the INSTA part - it's a total bummer and so many small shops will suffer because of it!

  9. I really hope that Instagram does not does this...I hated it when FB did and hardly ever get on FB anymore. So stupid!
    Need Starbust now!

  10. I mean wtf Instagram? So not cool and I love your snaps! Please replicate that kitchen so I can live vicariously through you! I am dying for a gray cabinet, white countertop kitchen!

  11. I didn't hear that about Instagram! That's so annoying...I don't like that idea at all!

  12. I didn't hear that about instagram - man that sucks!! If I wanted to see things based on my likes I'd use the search feature.
    That kitchen is incredible!! We are planning a kitchen reno in about ten years - I'm bookmarking it (bwahahaha).
    And while Chris loves the Starburst jelly beans, there is truly no better bean than Brach's. Classic. JK :)
