Five on Friday

friday is here already! the week has just flown by and I’m ready for a full weekend of productivity {mostly on a better organization system for this blog} and fun! I’m linking up again for five on friday with AprilChristina, Natasha and Darci!

one. this weekend is father’s day and I {of course} waited until the last minute to plan everything! hopefully a relaxing evening having a barbecue at my house will be fun for dad {even if he has to wait another week for his gift to arrive}. it will be totally worth it though! he is a barbecuing king and will be so excited to have the mega version of his favorite barbecue!


two. I’ve heard so many great things about this contour kit by Anastasia Beverly Hills that when I heard it would re-stock at Sephora at nine o’clock yesterday morning, I set a reminder! let’s hope it lives up to all the reviews!

yesterday was not a successful day! anyone else with me? definitely need a better system when it comes to a laundry routine!

four. tomorrow I finally made the time to try a kickboxing class at the gym! let’s hope I can still walk by monday…

five. after said kickboxing class, I will be consuming all of the calories burned {plus some} while cake tasting with a friend for her wedding!

I am looking forward to this for many reasons: I LOVE cake {who doesn’t?}, I will be visiting the sweet cake decorator that created our wedding cakes {Jennifer at For Heaven’s Cakes is wonderful} and I’m so excited for my friend to continue making progress on her wedding planning!

I am thinking this will lead to a series of wedding related posts since I love the wedding planning process so much!


have a fabulous weekend…cheers to dad!

Five on Friday

one. as a self-proclaimed list maker, I’ve decided there is nothing more appropriate than for my first blog post to be a list!

two. I have been following along this Friday link up for months and months and just love reading about the new adventures of April and Christina and their adorable new baby girls.

three. not only is this a great day because it’s Friday, but it is also National Doughnut Day! {You can see how I celebrated over on Instagram}

four. I ventured to a new restaurant this week! In celebration of my best friend’s birthday, we had lunch at the Panini Cafe…so delish and a fun afternoon off from work!

five. on the search for the perfect “greige” paint color! I’ve caught on to the trend and I’m dying to give our house a mini face lift of sorts!
