    High Five For Friday and NaBloPoMo November

    It’s Friday, Loves! The day I like to recap the best parts of my week in High Five for Friday…shall we? 1.  Trick or Treating was last Saturday in our little town…as always, it was so much fun! My sister, brother-in-law, and nephews came to spend the weekend with us which is always a blast.Chaotic and insane but a blast. Miss A was Rapunzel (a costume she’s had since our trip to Disney World last summer,yay for me!), Mr. Man went as Frankenstein, and my nephews were a Cowboy and a Baby Lion.  The best part about our neighborhood are the houses that serve “Adult Treats” along with the candy.…

    Another High Five for Friday

    Welcome to High Five for Friday!  This is my favorite time of the week, for sure. This week was all at once, exhausting, frustrating, frantic, as well as enlightening, and blessed.   I am finding myself heavy into the crazy that is raising two school aged kids. Soccer, ballet, church classes, snack leader, permission slips, homework checks, conferences, not to mention the stress of my own career, running this house, paying bills, doing laundry, making ordering dinner, and paying some attention to that guy I married a million years ago when life seemed much simpler… But I wouldn’t trade it for the world, I really wouldn’t. Here are some of…

    High uh, ..Two for Friday

    I’ve got to be honest…I’m having some trouble coming up with five things to write about for High Five for Friday this week.  It’s not that this has been a horrible week and I have nothing good to say or anything.  It’s just been…I don’t know…just another week.  I’m feeling guilty like I’m being all glass half empty, not appreciating the small things and I just kicked a puppy or something.   I think that’s one of the weird tricks blogging can play on your mind. You can get yourself into this pattern of feeling like you have to find the funny, inspirational angle in every event in your life.  Like…

    High Five for Friday!

    It’s High Five for Friday Time! Some of my highs this week include:1.  Finally getting the chance to bust out the Kate Spade Sparkle clutch my mom gave me for my birthday a while ago. It’s so adorable! And so fun to have a little luxury item I would never buy for myself. I’m grateful to have a mama that gets that. 2. I love, love this photo of my mom and sister and I taken last weekend. These are two of the strongest, most beautiful women I know. Also, the craziest…in a good way {mostly}.  It runs in the family, what can I say. I heart them. 3. I’m just…

    High Five for Friday-Turtles and Thrifting and Shopping, Oh My!

    It’s that time of the week again….HIGH FIVE for FRIDAY!  Love that.  Per usual, I’m linking up with Lauren @ From My Grey Desk Blog  1. We are knee deep in soccer season around here….Mr. Man (the orange #7) is doing an awesome job.  I love that he picked #7 for his jersey cause he’s 7.  He likes things to make sense and for the universe to tie together neatly.  Just like his mama.   2. I snagged this adorable Star Print Cotton Trench from Ann Taylor Loft last month and it’s finally gotten cool enough to wear it.  I adore it!  It’s so cute and fits so nicely.  It looks way more…

    Catching Up With High Five for Friday

    I haven’t linked up with Lauren @ From My Grey Desk Blog in a while for High Five For Friday so let’s do that, shall we? 1.  Chocolate Chip Cookie S’mores-To Die For Have you seen this recipe floating around Pinterest?  I made them a couple weekends ago when we went up to yet another friend’s lake house for the weekend and they were a HUGE hit.  There were actually random people from around the lake coming over to try them.  Okay, fine.  They were random to me because I was a guest there and I’m sure said people were actual friends of our hosts- but still.  They were there…

    High Five For Friday

    I’m trying something new this week and posting my High Five for Friday! Below you will find five highlights from my week (as told through Instagram) Enjoy! New Birthday Shoes!! I’ve been lusting after a pair of red patent leather heels for months to go with a few black and white outfits I’ve gotten recently. I finally snagged this pair from Steve Madden with the Amazon gift card I got from my mom for my birthday. Every girl needs a pair of red heels! 2. Nostalgic Trip to the Zoo Earlier this week the kids and I spent the day at our local big city zoo for probably the hundredth…
