Five on Friday- my first link up!

Friday, July 26, 2013

So I'm trying this link-up for the first time, which I have no idea if I'm doing right, but here goes! (Edit: I put the link to my About me page on accident and I don't know how to change it.. what a dummy! haha. #newbloggerproblems) If you're a new visitor to the blog, welcome! You can read more about me (and the blog) here. I hope you enjoy and can stick around!

I can hardly contain myself from all of the excitement that its Friday!! This has been a long week and I can't wait to put my feet up be productive this weekend. We have a lot to do this weekend but as long as I'm not sitting at my desk (and have a cold, alcoholic drink in my hand) I'll be happy :)


Some of my favorites from this week...

-ONE-
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Woo! I scored these Zella Live-In Leggings for almost $20 off. They are so comfortable... they actually sort of  feel like a wetsuit. They would be great for working out but I think I'll probably just wear them with sweaters and boots this Fall! I've also had my eye on these boots... maybe they'll be a weekend purchase.

-TWO-
Loving my first week of working out with my new kicks, seen here in my Workout Essentials post. There is something about new shoes, I feel like a runner (even though I'm clearly NOT). I'm sure this high will go away by Monday's workout.



-THREE-
Yesterday I was feeling a little under the weather. So instead of resting on the couch, I did the next best thing. I went to Target. And TJ Maxx. It was one of those nights where both stores had SO much cool stuff! Here is my haul.. I could have bought more but the hubs was hovering. ha!

All of these will be heading to our master bedroom, except for the basket (buy it here, it was $24 in the store) which will go by our fireplace. The candle holder is a little shiny, so I'll probably spray paint it and put it on my nonexistent vanity desk. The shower curtain will probably turn into pillows. I also need to hit up another TJ Maxx for a matching lamp, but overall I was excited!

Ruby photobomb.

I'm planning to redo our master bedroom (see my inspiration here) so check back next week for the before photos and a house tour!

-FOUR-
Date Night!! The hubs and I are going to make a night of it and go downtown for dinner, then I want to try out Kaminsky's for some dessert + dessert drinks! We love exploring the area and haven't gone downtown since we had friends here a few weeks ago. The photo below is from the Farmers Market a few weeks ago... so charming!


-FIVE-
I love these two. So. much. and I love our weekends together :)



I hope you all have a great weekend, check back next week for a new recipe and my first projects around the house!

  1. Hi lady! I found you from the five for Friday. Haha I remember my first link up and I did my URL instead of my actual blog post. I think it's not a big deal;) but if you ever want to fix one, when you look at the link up, there is normally a little red x next to your actual post and you can delete that way and start again. Glad to find you:)

    1. I hope you found some good things if you were able to make it to Nordstrom! I'm actually glad there isn't one close to me because I think I bought less because I couldn't see them in person! haha I'm sure my husband is happy about that too!
