Five on Friday – Vol. 21

Friday, I’m so happy to see you! 

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 – snow in Dallas.  Yesterday I was SHOCKED to walk out my front door to a snowy winter wonderland.  It was beautiful, but unfortunately I had hearings that I immediately knew I was going to be late to, and I still had to go to work after those.  Womp womp.  It took me over an hour to get to my first destination of the day, and then it took me another two hours to get about twelve miles to my office.  My nerves were SHOT.  Driving on those roads yesterday was for the birds – I was a total nervous wreck!  Thank goodness I made it everywhere safely, because I sure passed a lot of wrecks on the roads.

TWO – I just can’t help falling for everything pink this time of year.  My nails are getting a pink mani this weekend for sure.  One small thrill I had this week was starting a new journal, and of course I picked one that is extremely appropriate for this season of all things lovely and pink.  The fact that it matches my Jesus Calling book is a lovely bonus.

THREE – still on the subject of pink, I got a pretty stinking cute cupcake card in the mail from Mom this week.  My valentines are not out the door yet, and I have this mess on my kitchen table to prove that!

FOUR – I’ve found that Fridays are the best days for me to leave the office at lunch for any kind of lunch date with friends, and I’m excited about escaping for a bit for lunch today with a friend.  I also have plans with a JL friend tomorrow for lunch, and we have a Sunday School Valentine’s party tomorrow night.  Can’t wait for all the food, fun, and fellowship on the horizon!

FIVE – One of my law school BFFs is getting married this summer, and I’m helping with an engagement party for her in Jackson in March.  It coincides with the big St. Patrick’s Day festivities in Jackson, so I’m on the hunt for something cute and green to wear.  Green is one of my favorite colors to wear, especially in the spring.  I can’t wait to be there and catch up with law school friends!  It’s been ages.  I went for St. Patrick’s Day two years ago in 2012 and had the best time. 


Have a great weekend, y’all!

  9. Just found your blog through the cute. We just had snow in FL about 2 weeks ago and it was like the whole city shut down so I know just how nerve racking it is to drive in the snow in a city that no one knows how to drive in! Love all of your cute Valentines crafts. Can't wait to see what you do with them!

    have a great weekend! this texas native is envious of just reading "texas" in your blog header! can't wait to go home again!

  14. St. Patricks day is my favorite!! Fingers crossed for no more southern snow. We can't deal.

  15. I bet you were surprised to see some snow! If I've said it once, I've said it 100 times. I'm over winter.
