Five on Friday

it’s Friday again!! although I’ve skipped a couple, Five on Friday is such a fun way to link up and organize my thoughts at the end of the week…and trust me, this week could definitely use some organizing!  with a best friend’s wedding fast approaching and my sister-in-law’s wedding festivities about to begin, I’m planning to do some wedding-event related tips, tricks & ideas posts!

one. planning an engagement party

two. all things bridal shower

three. planning a bachelorette party

four. diy wedding ideas

five. what to do with wedding photos

not the most exciting five on friday post…but I’m super excited for what is to come and to be more dedicated to growing the whitney michaels blog!

did you wish you had any better information or ideas when planning your bridal events or for friends?



Five on Friday

today is friday, tomorrow is the official start of summer and I’ve recently added to my summer wardrobe and can’t wait to share my purchases!
five on friday 6.20.14
one. {floral maxi dress} who doesn’t love a comfortable maxi dress? I’ve worn it casual with sandals and a jean jacket in the evening and I can wait to wear it to the beach with a big floppy hat!
two. {blue dressy romper} love it or hate it, the romper can be dressed up or down! I love the material and ruffles on this romper and think it will be perfect paired with some pumps for an evening at a friend’s bachelorette party in San Diego this summer!
three. {camo shorts} neutral, stretchy and oh so comfortable! I love the way these shorts fit and that {to me} they are basically a neutral and I can add a pop of color or go easy with a black or tan top!
four. {neutral wedges} again…neutral and comfortable! I am obsessed with shoes {even though I hardly wear all the heels I own}.  I am more likely to grab these knowing they with be nice to my tootsies even if I wear them all afternoon!
five. {wifey tee} I’m loving the “wifey” trend! my hubby has always referred to me as his wifey {see how it all started below} and this tee is perfect for a casual date night!

have a fabulous weekend!

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!

three. {married life humor}


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!
