High Five for Friday

Well, well, well Friday – I never thought I’d see you again!

Was it just me, or did this week drag on and on? I always was one day ahead and then sorely disappointed when I realized the actual date. I blame the weather – we’ve plummeted down into the mid- to high-50’s with nothing but clouds and rain. Good thing we will be back in the sunshine and heat when we head to Vegas in a couple weeks!

Wherever you are and whatever your plans are for the weekend, I hope you have a good one! Here’s a recap of my week.

1. I received all my Labor Day sale goodies in the mail from Old Navy this week, and I love everything even more in person. Those sandals were such a steal at $9.97 a pair, and they are ridiculously comfortable. Be sure to check out how I plan to style those graphic tees in the coming months.

2. We officially became house hunters this week! We saw two houses Wednesday and are scheduled to see two more tomorrow. We definitely haven’t gotten that “feeling” yet when we’ve walked into a house, but it sure is fun to walk through each one and imagine how we’d make it our own.

3. I treated myself to an hour-long massage at our health and fitness club yesterday, and it was exactly what I needed. I basically am way too tense for my age, and I need to remember to relax once in a while – and to pay someone to get out all those nasty knots in my shoulders and neck!

4. Ryan and I finally bit the bullet and ordered a 50mm lens for our Canon DSLR. To say that I love it is an understatement – I am so excited to shoot some new outfits with it!

5. Please ignore how heinous I look in the following photo, but it came to my attention that I have yet to capture a photo of me, Ryan and Finley. Well, the opportunity presented itself the other night, and I had to take advantage. I’m a lucky girl to have these two guys in my life.

    That lil family photo is too cute 🙂 I can't wait to follow you along on your house hunting adventures!

    I can't imagine 20 viewings in one day! We had four yesterday, and I thought that was overwhelming!

  4. 9.14.14

    Glad I wasn't the only one that thought so! Hope you had a great weekend, thanks for stopping by!

  5. 9.14.14

    I felt like I was the last blogger to get that lens! It's definitely been fun to experiment with – it's another learning curve for Ryan and I. I can't wait to wear those sandals all over Vegas!

  6. 9.14.14

    I'm glad I wasn't the only one! Maybe because it was the first full week back from the short holiday week – who knows! Hope you enjoyed your weekend!

  7. 9.14.14

    Yes, the lens rocks! I have you to thank for the recommendation. Now Ryan just has to learn how to use it. 🙂

  8. 9.14.14

    Right?! They've really stepped up their game.

  9. 9.14.14

    Right?! I love the cooler fall temps, but I wasn't ready for that drastic of a change already … hopefully it's just a fluke and it will warm back up for a bit. Hope the house is coming along and that you had a good weekend!

  10. 9.14.14

    Thanks, lady! House hunting is so fun – we've really enjoyed it so far. Hope you had a great weekend!

  11. 9.14.14

    Thanks, girl! Hope you had a great weekend and time in Florida. 🙂

  12. 9.14.14

    Thanks, Ashley!

    I really can't get enough of graphic tees right now – I'm sure I'll be packing quite a few for our Vegas trip next week.

  14. 9.14.14

    Thanks, lady! Yes, Old Navy sure had some good deals going on. Hope you had a great weekend!

  15. 9.14.14

    Awe, thanks lady! I'm really looking forward to busting out all my Old Navy finds with this fall-like weather we're having in the Midwest. Hope you had a great weekend!

    Finn sure is smiling in that photo – too funny!

  17. 9.14.14

    Hey, Katie! So glad that you found me and plan to stick around – it means so much to me! Hope you had a fabulous weekend. xo

    Good luck with your house hunting, you're certainly right with waiting for that gut feeling. I got that with the house we ended up buying. One day while we were house hunting, we did 20 viewings, that was intense!

    OMG that picture of you guys is darling!!!! Finely's face!!!! I felt this week was out of control. I couldn't get my days straight and just assumed Friday would never make it. I think I'm packing up and working from the coffee shop for the last half of today just to celebrate the week ending. Sheesh.

  22. 9.12.14

    yeah!!!!!! So excited you got the lens!! It's amazing right? Can't wait to see how you style those cute shirts!
