Five on Friday

Happy Friday!  I’m so thrilled to report that our renovations are COMPLETE and we even started moving things back where they belong last night.  Woo hoo!  Also, it’s Friday, which is always always exciting.  This fun link-up with April, Darci, Natasha, and Christina is just another reason to love Fridays.


ONE – Our apartment upgrades are finished, and we are thrilled with the results!  It feels like a whole new space.  Things are slowly getting put back in their rightful place, thank goodness.



TWO – Tomorrow is my sister Melanie’s first wedding shower.  I can’t wait to see her and the rest of my family and celebrate.  We’re also attending an engagement party for Mel and her fiancé Clark tomorrow evening, so it will be a day full of celebrating their upcoming wedding.


THREE – Austin and I were walking and doing some window shopping in an outdoor shopping area in Dallas one evening earlier this week, and I had to practice some serious restraint at Banana Republic.  I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since – they have so much cute cute stuff right now.  Lots of good fall staples for work that.  I’m dying to go back and try some of it on and actually get to shop and not just look.  I’m sure Austin’s just dying for me to do that too…

FOUR – On a whim at the grocery store last weekend, we picked up some Wickles Pickles, and wow, they are so good!  New favorite pickle.  Getcha some if you are a pickle lover like we are.

FIVE – Yesterday, I was out and about at some hearings for work, and this sweet old couple came up to me and absolutely made my day – really, they made my whole week!  They told me I should “be one of those girls on Fox News – you know they are all so pretty girls and they all have those law degrees.”  It was precious.  And that has pretty much been a secret dream of mine since I was in high school, so I was just tickled.  I think they thought my outfit was “Fox News Approved.”  And I do have blonde hair… I told them Megyn Kelly was my favorite and they said her new show is just wonderful.  I haven’t watched yet but want to soon!



  1. I was eyeing that same cobalt bow pencil skirt when I spotted it in the window of Banana last weekend. So cute! Have a fabulous weekend!

  2. #5! Haha! So cute, I totally agree friend - I think you'd be great! We have Wickles at every tailgate...they're my stepmother-in-law's absolute favorite! So yummy! And I could totally spend about a million dollars in Banana right 5 minutes. Have so much fun celebrating your sister this weekend! :-)

  3. The renovations look great!!! Have so much fun celebrating your sister this weekend :)

  4. I have a major girl crush on Megyn Kelly; her new show is fabulous! Don't we all wish we were pretty enough to be on Fox News.

  5. If you like the wickles pickles, you should definitely try the relish to! That condiment does so much for so many!!

    1. Oh my word - I had no idea there was relish too. Game changer!
