Five on Friday – Vol. 20

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 week I finally got something in the mail that I’ve been wanting for over two years – our wedding pictures with a full release!  I can’t wait to go through them all this weekend.  Our photographer made us a beautiful book after the wedding, and we have some pictures scattered around the house, but I’ve never had all of the pictures in my possession, so I am just super excited.  Sneak peek --


TWO – Making some valentines is on my agenda tomorrow!  I’ve been tearing ideas out of the Paper Source catalog and pinning some ideas as well.  There’s really no better way to spend a Saturday in my book, well being with my mom and sisters and all making valentine goodies together would be slightly better, but I’ll manage.

THREE – Finally busted out my earrings from my sister’s wedding and wore them to work twice this week.  I don’t know what took me so long – I love them!  I’m really on quite an aqua/mint kick right now.

FOUR – Of course everyone is prepping for Super Bowl parties this weekend, and I’m also trying to finalize my contribution to the SB party we’re attending on Sunday afternoon.  Our hostess suggested something sweet when I asked what she thought she’d need more of, so I’m going to spend a little time with my recipe binder tomorrow morning and figure out what I can fix for a sweet addition to their spread.  Maybe some type of cookie or cupcake?  Maybe these fudgy football brownies?

FIVE – If you follow me on Instagram, then I should probably apologize for the abundance of random pictures that I posted on Sunday evening.  Our discipleship class at church went on a scavenger hunt and used IG to keep track of all the places/things we were able to check off our master list.  We divided up into three teams and ran around downtown Dallas like crazy people.  It was super fun, but y’all probably thought I was crazy as all these pictures were posting! Below we have (1) with an out of state license plate (Mississippi, obviously!), (2) toe in a pool, (3) on a streetcar, and (4) on a jungle gym! 



Happy weekend!
