Five on Friday

One. 2014 is already off to a great start! I'm not pressuring myself with too many resolutions, but I've got in mind how I want to live this year differently and so far so good. We had a few friends come into town to celebrate the new year with us and it was a blast.


Two. I'm one of those people that is utterly obsessed with planners... not that I'm even that organized, but I love to have life written down in a pretty planner. I'm feeling inspired by the new year and want to try a new one. I've always been a big fan of Erin Condren planners, but am looking at the Day Designer by Whitney English now. Any others I should take a look at?

Three. We have taken down our Christmas decorations, only the tree stands now. We kept the lights on it and have enjoyed having it on these first few days of the new year - it's not like us to keep it up this long, and honestly it just hasn't been taken down because once it is we have to get it down 6 floors to the outside of our apartment building... and well that seems exhausting. But I'm not complaining, I really enjoy the light of a Christmas tree so I'm soaking it in until we find the time energy to take it down.  

This is my parents house in NC. Right out of Southern Living, am I right?

Three. My birthday is next Sunday! And I am so excited, I love birthdays... but having one so soon after Christmas seems really early to already start asking for more gifts. What did you get for Christmas that I should have on my birthday list? I really need some help here.


Four. I am so thrilled 2014 is here and I'm really looking forward to all that it will bring, but my mind keeps wondering back to 2013 and just how good it was to us. I will forever be thankful that 2013 was the year that gave me my husband! (I have full intentions of sharing our wedding pictures soon!)

Five. This is my 3rd day in the office this week... only three little days, but this has been the longest week ever. We're creeping to 5:00! And then it's a weekend full of fun, football (GO TIGERS!) and good food and drinks with some friends. Happy Weekend!

  1. I'm obsessed with planners too! Erin Condran has been my favorite for years, but this year the budget just couldn't handle it. So far I've bought two planners... neither are living up to it, but I'm trying to pretend :) Your parents house seriously looks like it's right out of a magazine! So so pretty!!!

  2. you and your husband are so cute together. Congratulations and I hope 2014 is just as good as 2013.

  3. You are oh so lovely! Just started following on GFC and can't wait to read along, babe!!! Your parents' casa is AAAAMAZING. A cozy, mountainy room like that is a dream!!! And as I type I'm taking a break from just having taken all the lights off the tree. Sigh! I ordered a Maybook this year as my planner. I love it!! It's the perfect size to slip in a purse without being too heavy or bulky...but still really cute and personalized on the outside :)

    Cheers to the weekend, beauty! xx

  4. That fireplace is to die for. We still have our tree up too, I love the lights. This weekend, when we will have nothing to do BUT put the house back together since it is supposed to be -20!

  5. Your parents house is definitely right out of a magazine! Gorgeous!

    I'm thinking of splurging on the Erin Condran myself. We shall see!

  6. You and your husband are precious! Glad I stumbled upon your blog. My hubs and I struggled to take down the lights this year too...something so magical about them. Belated CONGRATS on your sweet truly is the greatest gift! Hope your 2014 is off to a great start. :)


I'd love to hear from you :) Thanks for stopping by!
