Five on Friday

Friday, February 21, 2014

Today I'm blogging from up North as my husband, Ruby and I had to make a last minute trip to spend time with Steve's grandpa who is not doing so well. I'm lucky to be able to see my family too but let me tell you, this girl does not do last minute planning or traveling well. Especially when it involves 10 hour car rides.

Now that we're out of the car and I've regained feeling in my legs, I can look forward to some quality family time this weekend! But first up, I'm joining Christina and the Five on Friday crew for my favorites from the week!

Donut pan

This week I purchased a donut pan, which is definitely a terrible and fantastic idea at the same time. I can't wait to try out these apple cider donuts, but I've found lots of other options on Pinterest and think it might be a funfetti donut kind of weekend!

New Sperry Top-Siders

One of my favorite pairs of shoes are my Sperrys because they are so comfortable. I was debating on whether to take my beat up pair to Europe until I found these adorable 'Audrey' navy and gold ones! I got them for $42 on Amazon, then they went up to $77 the next day. Talk about good timing!

Computer Background

Floral Wallpaper

How pretty is this (free) computer background?! Perfect for Spring and just plain gorgeous to look at while working! Actually, there are tons of other free backgrounds for your computer or phone on this site if you're in the market!

Spring

Weather in the 70s this week made me so ready for Spring! And just when I thought I was doing well avoiding too many unnecessary clothing and jewelry purchases, all of my favorite stores had to come out with new spring lines that I'm totally drooling over! I'm really looking forward to some new spring decor (DIY project coming soon!) and lots of festive St. Patty's Day goodness! Anyone else with me?!

My Husband

Not to be too cheesy but this man is the best.ever. He drove the whole way yesterday, got me a Starbucks at one of the rest stops, we reminisced about how awesome our wedding was almost one year ago, chatted about all of the food and wine we plan to consume in Italy, and made some plans for the future! Despite the fact that Ruby and I are bad road trip companions for anything over 4 hours, I loved our quality time together and truly feel so, so lucky to be his wife.

I hope you all have a great weekend! I'll be back to regularly scheduled programming next week!

  12. I LOVE those shoes. I'm also on the hunt for cute and comfy shoes for our next Europe trip! Word of advice - I wore comfy flats during our trip to Italy, but towards the end my ankles were really hurting from walking on all the cobblestone. Take some sturdier gym shoes too! Have a great weekend Caitlin!
