Friday Faves

Friday, March 7, 2014

It's Friday! Hallelujah.

It's been a soggy week here in Charleston, which kind of matched the level of enthusiasm in this household thanks to a very busy work week. Those 9 days off of work we have coming up are going to feel good. Real good.

Today I'm linking up with Christina and the gang for another Five on Friday, so here goes!

Pretty Prints

Hustle Print.

I've been searching for the perfect prints in my office redo, and they have to be pretty and inspiring. I'm loving this "Hustle" print and basically all of the pretty options from SS Print Shop! I've also got my eye on this Paris print... she makes them for lots of big cities and they are all gorgeous!

Trader Joe's Finds


Yes, that is a whole case of $3 Trader Joe's wines. We're not a tough crowd to please over here. We don't get over to TJ's often so I got the essentials: Wine, tulips, two boxes of macarons (because I couldn't wait to eat them in Paris) and a giant bottle of EVOO. The EVOO comes with a little spout for pouring and is only $8!

Spring Tulips


I already showed you some of our St. Patty's Day decor, but I have been looking for tulips for our mantel and couldn't find them until our TJ trip. There is something about tulips that makes it look like spring now! I'm also loving that moss letter, it was a really easy (but messy) DIY project. I sprayed adhesive on the front of the letter, cut the sheet moss around it, and used a hot glue gun to glue the rest of the moss on the back of the letter.

Outfit Planning for Europe


I couldn't wait any longer to start putting some of the little things together for our trip and get out the suitcases... eek! In an effort to keep myself from over-packing, I'm going to try really hard to outfit plan this weekend and bring only what I need. Wish me luck!

And in case you were concerned, you still have a few days of me next week. Make sure to follow along on Instagram though if you want a sneak peak of our trip!

Hunger Games 2

The new Hunger Games was delivered to our doorstep yesterday! Got to love Amazon. We never made it to the theater to see it, so I can't wait to watch it this weekend!

I hope you all had a fantastic week, and hopefully a sunny weekend!

  9. I just picked up the same macaroons and hydrangeas from TJ's, too. The vanilla & chocolate ones are really good, I've never had the other ones but am hoping they're just as good. Can't believe your trip is SO close!! Have a fabulous weekend. : )

    1. I was the same way when we lived in Florida! I've found some good deals there (like the stuff above) but some things can get pricey there so you're not missing out too much!

  15. I love those prints! I wish I had seem them earlier than now. They would be perfect in a frame for the bridal shower I'm hosting tomorrow. I just got some tulips too! First time buying them so I hope they live at least a week!

  23. I almost always get my olive oil at TJ's, too! Such a good deal. I've never seen the macaroons there but I'm going to look for them next time because.. this is crazy... but I've NEVER had a macaroon before! What is wrong with me?! Have a good weekend

    ReplyDelete
  24. We also got the Hunger Games delivered on Friday {via Netflix}, LOVED it!! Still thought the book was better...but that always seems to be the case

  25. When I'm really excited about a trip, I always start packing really early, too! Plus, thinking over what you want to wear does help curb overpacking!

  26. Totally never thought to buy olive oil at TJ's, but I most definitely will from now on - I'm a sucker for that little spout thing! Love that peek of spring decor on your mantel, especially those gorgeous tulips! Hope the time between now and when y'all leave flies by!
