Five on Friday

Hallelujah! It's Friday.

This week seemed to go by pretty dang fast, though. Which is always a bonus in my book.
If we could have a five day weekend and a two day workweek {& still get paid for those 5 days}, I would be a happy camper.

Here's five things I am lovin' about this week:

1 - I had the chance to paint my nails! A nice bright coral & gold glitter combo. The best part? I was able to paint them at work! Today was a nice relaxing Friday in the office, so when we had some downtime I would throw a quick coat on them and before I knew it, they were done. Talk about being productive ;)

2 - That painting up there. It was the inspiration for the entire re-do of our downstairs decor. We chose paint colors and pillows and window panels based entirely off of this piece {that Nicholas bought for me for our 4 year anniversary, because he knew how much I loved it! Of course, it's from Pier 1.}  and we've slowly been working on getting this whole level complete and I am loving every bit of it. I can't wait to see the finished product!

3 - Peyton is so beyond excited for her Frozen-inspired fifth birthday party next week! Nearly all of the RSVPs from her classmates were "yes, we're coming!" which will be fantastic. Today, my Momma gave her Elsa's castle to play with and so that we would have it for decoration when it's party time. She's spent the entire time since we got home singing along to the soundtrack and playing with her new toy & I have been so content with just listening to and watching her imagination come to life. I have to come up with our main dish, the rest of the snacks, games/activities, & decor ideas... any suggestions are appreciated! :)

4 - Our Save The Dates arrived today!! As far as I knew, they weren't coming until next week so I was super excited when Nick said he found that little blue box on our doorstep. I wanted to get them out around April 4th {6 months before the big day!} so a head start on addressing them will be wonderful. Once I mail them out, I'll share what they look like.

5 - Yesterday, Nick stayed home because he had a severe headache/neckache that quickly turned into a full on backache and he said that lack of sleep and stress with school just caught up with him. So, he slept away most of the morning and then worked on homework for the rest of the afternoon. Luckily for me, I was able to leave work 2 hours early and when I got home we just snuggled and spent the whole evening together. I love Peyton to death, but sometimes just having some "us time" with my man is really nice. It allows us to connect and catch up, which we really needed lately.

I am looking forward to a weekend full of party planning and crafting; as well as making a new recipe {Spanish Chicken and Potato Roast} and just spending time with my loved ones.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and that these next 2 days don't fly by so quickly for us!



  1. Frozen inspired birthday?! LOVE!! That is so exciting about your save the dates -- I remember how exciting that was!!! :)

  2. I love that you painted your nails at work! I should have done that last week - everyone was out on vacation. I wish I had been more productive!

    A Frozen inspired birthday party sounds awesome - maybe I should have one for myself this year haha!


Thank you for stopping by! :)
