High Five for Friday


This week was my last full week of summer break!  Orientations for grad school start next Thursday.  So I really enjoyed a pretty quiet, mellow week.  The calm before the storm, I'm sure!  Here are five highlights:

1. I blogged about it here, but Lindsey's wedding was definitely a highlight!  Such a fun and beautiful night!  (This is the worst quality picture ever, but I love how the twinkle lights and chandelier glow!)

2. I switched the quote on my chalkboard this week.  I need this reminder daily!  And I thought it would be the perfect thing to keep on there through Thanksgiving.  

3. I bought a new Essie color this week: Fiji.  I think this will be perfect for days when I'm feeling even more girly than normal.

4. I've started a little collection of glass jars and bottles on my mantle.  Thanks to my mother-in-law for the vintage blue canning jar and milk bottle!  I just love them, and I think I need some wildflowers to fill some of them. 

5. I am so in love with Parks and Recreation.  I've been getting excited for the past few weeks since there's only a little over a month left until premiere week!  In honor of that, I have been watching Parks and Rec reruns on Netflix.   I'm pretty sure this is the best show ever, and I could watch every episode over and over, and I'd still laugh until I cry every time. Are you a Parks and Rec fan?  

Happy Friday!


  1. Pretty color! I have an Essie polish that is light pink like that, and it does make me feel more girly . . . I love it! I have never watched Parks and Rec, but that picture made me laugh!

  2. I love your chalkboard! and I LOVE that show too! I can't even wait for it to come back on!!

  3. That wedding picture looks fab!! Love the chandelier myself!!

    Don't you love how mason jars can totes change your life?!?!

  4. That chalkboard is super cute!! The wedding picture is adorable too! I'm always looking for new nail polish, so I'll have to try Essie. That color looks good on you too!
