High Five for Friday

I’m pretty sure I open every Friday’s post the same way, so why stop now?
Happy Friday, everybody!
This has been a much better week than last and extremely productive, so I’m looking forward to carrying that into the weekend. Plus, Ryan and I get to spend a whole weekend together for the first time in three weeks, so I’m happy I get to spend some quality time with my man. 
Wherever you are and whatever plans you have, I hope you have a great weekend! Here’s some highlights from my week. 

1. I’ll be getting my inspiration board and proofs for my virtual assistant website tomorrow! The beautifully-talented Aubrey Kinch is handling that part of things, and I can’t wait to see what she’s come up with. I’m just thrilled everything is finally coming together, and I can get going on marketing and advertising my services. 
2. On my way into Iowa last weekend, I stopped at my friend Jenna’s place first to see her and her new puppy, Oliver! This sure fueled my puppy fever even more. He was the sweetest – he even came to say goodbye to me from the top of the stairs. 

3. Ryan surprised me with a dozen “just because” roses when I got home Sunday. I have to laugh a little that he said they were for no reason because I really think he just felt sorry that I *ahem* wasn’t feeling so well from the bachelorette party. The colors remind me of the sunset, and they look beautiful on our dining room table. 

4. Target Monster Trail Mix. ‘Nuff said. I literally cannot get enough!

5. This post wouldn’t be complete without a bunny picture, now would it? I swear I’m like bunny paparazzi. This is Penny while she was exploring around the walkway in the front of the house. I just love how close they get to us now without being scared.

    Trail mix is the bomb. That dog, OMG I don't even want another dog but I want him. I'll take that lil bunny too šŸ˜‰ Those roses are some of the prettiest I've ever seen! Have a good weekend!

    Beautiful flowers!! I was feeling the same way on Saturday morning after a night out – wish Nick would have got the 'flowers cure hangovers' memo šŸ˜‰

    Right?! Oliver stirred up our puppy fever, and we (fingers crossed!) may be adopting one in a few weeks … just waiting on approval from our landlord. Hope you've had a good weekend!

    Thanks lady, hope you've had a good weekend.

    You need to get that trail mix asap. It's life changing, lol!

    You are the sweetest! Thank you for your kind words. I definitely will be checking out your blog. Happy Sunday!

    Oh no! We may be adopting a puppy here soon (fingers crossed!) so I'm concerned that the bunnies will leave us for good. Better that than a homicide, though! šŸ™‚

    Right?! And, my roses are still going strong, I can't believe it.

    The bunny pictures crack me up! We have several at our house, but with our dog they don't venture too close to us. Sadly, a few weeks back we even had a homicide on our hands… Not fun! Okay, well enough about that. Have a great weekend!

    Yay for getting your inspiration board, how exciting! The flowers are beautiful, enjoy your weekend together with your hubby!

    Bahaha, let's face it – isn't that why we all love trail mix?! The mister always does a great job of finding me unique roses – he never settles for ordinary!

  15. 6.20.14

    Yes, exciting times over here! I'm just happy it's all finally starting to come together … it's probably been apparent that I've been a bit stressed, especially last week. Here's to hoping! šŸ™‚

    It's so good – I have to control myself around it!
