Five on Friday

It’s FRIDAY!!! I took a week off from the blog world to tend to my little darling’s first birthday party (more on that in a separate post), but I’m back. This weekend we’re heading to Waco for college game day. My sweet devoted (football obsessed) husband has requested to leave around 8am for a 7pm game. I mean, seriously. Please note it only takes an hour and a half to get to Waco. I’m mentally preparing myself as we speak. Pillow, yeti cup, snacks, and a change of clothes for the car ride home. Check. If you run into me on Sunday and I’m still in my pajamas you’ll understand why. Help.Me.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY LITTLE LOVE! This baby girl turned ONE year old this past week. We partied pretty hard last weekend. Lots of pink and gold, cookies, cake, presents and family. Sounds blissful, right?

My family. We had family pictures taken about a month ago by my dear friend Paige and they turned out just as dreamy as I expected. It’s one of those things where you leave wondering if you got ANY good shots at all. Sick husband, teething/fussy baby, cloudy, windy, hair flapping out of control, you name it…but wah-lah! Leave it to the master behind the lense and she of course got the money shots. Love you Paige!

Holiday pillows – Hello, these are the cutest! I purchased the plaid pillow and while it may seem like a flashback to your Mom’s couch from the 90’s, I can assure you it’s one cute pillow in person. Especially paired with other pillows.




Buffalo Check Bedding – This bedding recently found it’s way into my guest bedroom and I have to admit I’m in love.



The ‘Lob’ – I took the plunge and chopped 4 inches off of my long locks (similar to ol Julianne’s hair below). I didn’t put much thought into it, I was just so tired of dealing with a stringy, split-end mess that I said screw it. And I love it!!! And hey, it’ll grow back soon enough. I’ll post a pic next week.
