Friday Favorites

Friday, May 30, 2014

Is it just me or did this week fly by!? I can't believe its already Friday but hey, I'll take it! We've got a busy weekend ahead and I'll be blogging all next week from Florida! Now if only I could fast forward through that road trip...

Today I'm linking up again with Amanda, Christina, and the rest of the Five on Friday crew!

One. Office Update

Gray Harper Dining Chair
This past weekend I finally found a comfy chair in my price range for my office redo, and I'm loving it! I originally bought it in light grey (which is beige online) but realized they had a charcoal grey which is perfect with my rug. (FYI- World Market sells these in a set of 2 online but you can get them individually in the store!) Spray painting that Ikea desk took longer than I thought but I love the way the white looks versus the old darker version. I'll have more photos as soon as I get my gallery wall up!

Two. Fourth of July shirt

Navy Monogrammed America Shirt


Y'all I found this shirt on Etsy and couldn't get it in my online cart fast enough! I think its so darn adorable and obviously I had to get my monogram on the front! I think it will be perfect in the evening after I get ketchup or something ridiculous on my other outfit. ha!

Three. Custom Photo Albums



This week I finally finished going through all 900+ photos from our Europe trip and ordered our photo album! We used the same company, Adorama Pix, to make our wedding album and it was so worth the extra money. You can pick any layout you want for every page and make it look totally professional. Our 56-page wedding album with a leather cover and lay-flat pages was under $80 after a 40% off coupon. They have another 40% sale going on until June 3rd (use the code: PXFB40K) I definitely recommend using them for wedding, travel or baby albums!

Four. Nerd Alert... World Wars on the History Channel

Has anyone watched the new World Wars special on the History Channel, or am I just a total nerd for loving it? It basically gives you a rundown of all of the world leaders during the World Wars. It probably sounds boring but I swear I'm not a history buff, its just really well done!

Five. Weekend Plans


If the weather holds up this weekend the hubs and I are trying something new here in Charleston before packing up the car for the Sunshine State. Even though its not vacation time in Florida, I'm looking forward to seeing a few sunsets on my favorite beach, Siesta Key! Make sure to follow along on Instagram to see what we're up to!!

That's is for me today, I hope you have a fab weekend with lots of sun!
