Five on Friday!

Friday, March 28, 2014

Y'all, I'm having a terrible time functioning this week. My level of disorganization right now is of epic proportions. But I love Five on Fridays with Christina and crew, so I'm keeping it simple with my favorites from this week!


ONE. Souvenirs from Europe. 

Pretty prints for my office from the riverside stands in Paris. Random Colosseum and mask trinkets I plan to rig into Christmas tree ornaments. Laduree macaron box (not sure what I'm doing with this yet). Paris Starbucks mug (adding it to my ridiculously large mug collection, I have a problem). Carnevale mask from Venice (Because I have so many masquerades to go to... #itwaspretty). Not pictured: Italian Olive Oil and Wine (which we drank the next day...)

So sad I never had time to go to Diptyque for a candle, but at least I can get one at Nordstrom.

TWO. White Pizza with Cherry Tomatoes and Zucchini.

As much as I was sick of pizza and carbs by the end of our trip, I have a serious craving for this pizza I got in Siena! It was delicious... I may or may not have eaten the entire thing. Definitely putting it on the menu for our lazy weekend ahead.

THREE. Pillow Updates. 

We never really have any pretty pillows on our couch unless its during a holiday, so I finally added these. I'm not totally loving our couch, so these pillows give it a little update. The white one is from Ikea, Blue geometric from H&M Home, and the Ikat is a DIY with fabric from Joann's.

FOUR. Ruby.

This little Ewok (who is totally getting a bath this weekend) has been such a cuddlebug since we've been home. To the point of sleeping on our heads in bed, laying on my lap while I work, and following us around everywhere. So stinkin' cute!

FIVE. Target + Zara Home.

This sounds ridiculous but I was so happy to step foot back in Target last night. I didn't buy anything spectacular, but just being able to browse the fun Spring items made me thankful to be home. If I ever moved across the pond, I would really, really miss Target. So pathetic! On another note, has anyone seen Zara Home? We went into their store in Paris and they have the most beautiful home decor, even little baby things for the mamas-to-be!

That's it for me this week, check back next week for regularly scheduled programming and the start of our Italy recaps! Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

  16. That's one thing I wish I got more of when traveling, artwork. Nothing fancy just the stuff on the street. Is love to do a gallery wall with paintings from the places we've been!
