i'm so excited, a few of my blog gal pals (here and here) are hosting a new link up: 5 on friday, and i'm so pumped to join the partay! here are a few things that i'm super excited about:


1  |  we went out last night to celebrate one of andrew’s coworker’s (and good friend’s) bday. we ended up going to VGBG and had a ton of fun playing trivia and eating cake. we made our way over to an invite-only concert next door at the fillmore. this was my first concert there, but it won’t be my last! what a great place – such an intimate setting! the free booze provided didn’t hurt either! andrew and i ended the night lounging on the couch, listening to jack johnson and o.a.r. reminiscing about the good ol college days. ahhh.

2  |  NO. i am not with child. i'm NOT preggs. one of my very best and long-time girlfriends is flying in from dallas for HER baby shower this weekend! i'll be going to danville on saturday to celebrate her and rub her little bump! one of my go-to baby gifts right now is a wubanub – which might be the cutest little thing ever. i know i would have been all about this as a child – seeing as how i didn’t let go of my tiny stuffed rabbit friend, “beans”, until i was in middle school.

3  |  memorial day is monday and the unofficial start to summer. this means short shorts are IN season! last year, i did a little tutorial on my american flag cut off shorts for the NASCAR race, and i might just be brining them out of retirement!

4  |  how gorgeous are these kate spade earrings? they would have been perfect for a cinco de mayo bash!

5  |  i've been using this face wash for a week now and think i've found my second life partner. i've mentioned before that i have horrible skin - actually, i'm pretty self-conscious about it. i have really deep pores (damn genetics) and i rarely feel like my face is really clean – even after washing with a clarisonic every night. i can honestly say that my face is softer and brighter and i could tell a difference after just 1 use. -- plus a $7 price tag certainly beats what i've been desperately throwing away at sephora.

look at me! back on the blog-wagon!




1  |  thanks for all the love shown over the May Book giveaway - and a special thanks to my blog girlfriends for helping spread the word! what? you haven’t entered? it’s not too late! contest ends TONIGHT at MIDNIGHT! hurry hurry!

2  |  for the first time in too long, i joined a new bible study. i've been seeking a change in my life, and i already feel God making a difference. super excited to get into this study and meet some new friends!

3  |  i've got a few DIY’s on the horizon: one in particular, this bar cart made from a baby changing table. genius, right?! haha this really shows where our family’s priorities are right now.

4  |  i purchased this dear stella fabric last year before christmas with the intention of making some roman shades for our kitchen. i'm feeling extra motivated this weekend to cross some items off my to-do list and this is at the top!

5  |   starting saturday, andrew and i are getting our buns back in the gym. i felt so awesome last year when i was working out more - i had way more energy and felt more confident. hopefully the new years resolution crew has died down a tiny bit! we shall see!

happy weekend!



in the new year, i've been paying more attention to the positive and keeping my outlook light (i'm a natural worrier). but, in all honesty, looking back on this week, it wasn't too shabby.

1 | yesterday i received my very first maybook planner. i'm so happy with the pattern i chose, and i've been busy filling that baby in. more details to come about this pretty gal next week!

2 | i had a nice little impromptu lunch date with my brother yesterday. we've been wanting to find some cheap mexican and lucked out at three amigos in plaza midwood. christina has raved about their guac, and it did NOT disappoint!

3 | the weather is supposed to be amazing this weekend, and i'm really looking forward to spending some time outside. the back yard is one of our favorite things about the new house, and we're planning on having some friends over to grill out - should be a great time!

4 | yesterday, i recieved my first shipment from influenster. i think this is the first time i've ever gotten excited about dish soap.

5 | i'm SO pumped. i'm getting my hair cut this afternoon - just a trim though. i've worked too hard to get my hair long, so there will be no drastic changes today. there's just something about a fresh haircut that makes a gal feel better about life. (disclaimer, this is not my hair. this gal is pinned here)

today, i'm linking up with lauren @ from my grey desk with her weekly "high five for friday"!

happy weekend!!
