High Five for Friday

TGIF! How was your week? I’m looking forward to the weather getting back into the mid-50’s/low 60’s this weekend seeing as we took a big step backward this week in the weather department. I’m talking like snow on the ground step backward. It’s April, Mother Nature – start acting like it!

Okay, I’ve talked myself off the temperature edge.

Anyways, I have a pretty quiet weekend ahead since it’s Ryan’s weekend to work. If the weather cooperates, I should be able to get the first coat of paint on the vintage vanity! I’m so excited (and ready) to get this project done. What a labor of love that table has been.

Wherever you are and whatever your plans are this weekend, I hope you have a wonderful time! Here is my recap of the week.

1. I get to see and have lunch with this lady today a.k.a. my cousin Nicole. We now only live about 30 minutes from each other, but we’ve only managed to get together once since Ryan and I moved here in February. I am looking forward to lots of laughs and catching up. Oh, and that picture on the right is one of my favorites from my wedding day – Nicole had to put my garter on because I couldn’t bend down to do it myself! 

2. As you all know from this post, Revenge is one of my favorite shows on TV. When I came across these earrings at World Market, I just had to have them. I see nothing wrong with accessorizing in tribute to a favorite TV show – is that just me? Probably.

3. Speaking of TV, can we just take a minute to contemplate last night’s finale of Scandal? Oh. em. gee. That pretty much sums up my thoughts. I can’t wait for next season!

4. This purchase happened this week, and I am not ashamed of it. Actually, it was the hubs’ idea to get it since it is on sale at Target. That just reaffirms my suspicions that he enjoyed it more than he lead on … typical.

5. Here’s another sneak peek of the vanity – we finished the bench! Let me tell you, upholstering is no easy feat. I’m not even sure if we did it right, but I’m thrilled with the finished product so that’s all that matters. I’m glad I decided to spray paint the bench black to contrast it against the table, which eventually will be a soft white. It’s all coming together!

    Ahh love those Revenge earrings! I've fallen so behind on that show.. I really need to get caught up one day. And I think I'm the only person in the world that hasn't seen Scandal or Frozen! I'm slacking over here!!

    Thanks, girl! And, definitely go pick up Frozen at Target today before the sale is over! I also saw you can get 25% off the Bluray if you also use Cartwheel … all signs are pointing toward you buying it. πŸ™‚

    Love the earrings! I still have not watched Frozen- maybe I'll pick it up at the Target sale!

  5. 4.18.14

    Isn't it not the best show ever? Half the reason I watch it is for Emily VanCamp/Emily Thorne's clothes – the style on that show is off the hook! I wish I had all of her outfits in my closet. I'm so glad you are enjoying my blog so far, and I hope you stick around! Have a great weekend!

    I starting watching Revenge a couple of months ago and I'm obsessed! I blew through the seasons like nobody's business. Your blog seems like just my cup of tea, so glad I found you!

    Yes, you need to see Frozen immediately! I know you'll love it. I never did a full recap of our wedding, but I think I may need to do that since everyone seems to enjoy the wedding photos I post here and there … stay tuned. πŸ™‚ Have a great weekend!

  8. 4.18.14

    Thanks girl! Stay tuned. πŸ™‚

    Ha! Your comment cracked me up. πŸ™‚ Happy Easter!

  12. 4.18.14

    Thanks, lady! We got married in October, and I never did a full wedding recap, so I've just been posting photos here and there – maybe it's time I did a full recap! You will LOVE the results of the plum color in your wedding photos, it's such a great pop of color but still neutral. And, who doesn't love Frozen these days?! Thanks for stopping by – have a great weekend!

  13. 4.18.14

    Yes, jump on the Scandal train now! Awesome show. And, there was no way we were passing up Frozen for $13. The hubs and I sing the same thing to each other, ha!

  14. 4.18.14

    Thanks, girl! Scandal is so awesome – you won't be disappointed. πŸ™‚

    We also got that freezing weather again and it's slowly but surely warming back up– but still feels SO cruel after it was so nice just a week ago! I still haven't seen Frozen but I feel like I need to buy it just to have it because I'm sure it's as cute as everyone makes it out to be! I feel like I'm always way behind on obsessions! haha

    Love the pictures from your wedding! I hope you have a great weekend catching up with your cousin Nicole!
