Five on Friday – Vol. 19

Happy Five on Friday friends!  Thanks for stopping by today, and thanks as always to the lovely hostesses: A.Liz Adventures, Carolina Charm, The Good Life, and Hello Happiness.


ONE – This is what a good mail day looks like my friends – no bills or annoying junk mail, just two of my favorite mags ever.  And even better, just in time for the weekend!  Can’t wait to dive into these on Saturday.

TWO – I stopped by the grocery store the other day to pick up some fruit to get us through the week, and these grapefruits I got are absolutely GIANT.  They are also quite tasty – I looove winter citrus.


And speaking of winter citrus, I really want to make this Clementine Vanilla Bean Quick Bread.  Oh my heavens, yum.

THREEThis is the best blog post I’ve read all week.  Such an encouragement to those of us who haven’t quite nailed down what it is that we are called to do. 

FOUR -  I am in full menu planning mode right now, and I’m loving it.  We are finally doing something we’ve talked about for ages and starting a supper club with some other couples.  Our first dinner is one week from today, and we are hosting!  I can’t wait!  I’m devoting my day tomorrow to planning (well that and those two new magazines up there).  I’m feeling a more detailed menu post next week, and of course they’ll be a recap to come as well!

Still toying with ideas and putting the final touches on everything, but how good does this look for an app?

FIVE – As we venture into Austin’s busy season at work, I’ll leave you with this little “gift” he brought home the other night.  I can’t wait to put this little guy on my car. ;) I do love my CPA though!

Hooray for the weekend! 


  1. I absolutely love the sticker Austin brought home - my mom is a CPA and tax season is absolutely mad! I love Garden and Gun. I always look at all of the homes and dream that mine will look like them some day, too! Have a great weekend!!

  2. Okay, I have that sticker hanging up in my office room!! I love "my CPA" too - he brought it home one day and i died laughing. I keep saying I will put it on my car ;)

    Southern Living is my absolute favorite. I just got a subscription to Country Living too, which I am loving. Now I just need someone to give me a ranch house to decorate! Love your blog!

  8. Stopping by from the linkup! The idea of a supper club always sounds like so much fun to me, can't wait to ee what you plan. I haven't had the chance to sit down with my new issue of SL yet, but the cheesy grits and pasta teaser on the front have me all but drooling already!

  9. Bless all the CPAs in busy season. I have a couple CPA BFFs (...HA! So many acronyms!), and I seriously don't know how they do it!!!!

  14. I am so happy I dropped by your blog! You made me smile because we have something in common - delving into the current issue of Southern Living! I live for that quiet time with my pen (to circle and star everything I love in the issue) and good drink and the magazine on my lap. Its my happy time. Your app looks amaze! That bread/cake looks sinfully delicious. Have a great Sunday!
