Friday {8/22/14}

Hi y’all!

Is it just me or did this week FLY by? Oh my goodness! As I look back on this week (and last, since I missed last week’s post), here are some highlights –

ONE. Matt and I celebrated our second anniversary last Monday (the 11th)! I’m so thankful to be married to my best friend – he’s the bomb! 😉 I also couldn’t believe how beautiful the roses were that he brought home for me –

And I love having sweet anniversary cards on our mantel!


TWO. My parents were here all of last week and we had SO much fun! I had to work three days while they were here but we still got to do a lot of fun things besides hanging out at the condo (which we all love) – we went wandering around Chapel Hill, shopping, to the movies, and to a Nickel Creek concert (which was amazing)!

THREE. I’m still trying to keep up with FMSphotoaday (you can read more here and see my Instgram feed here) and it’s been a great experiment –





FOUR. I finally got to post about our kitchen progress!

FIVE. I think that I have finally almost finished the bookcase that I have been redoing. Y’all. It has been a struggle and I’m determined that it will be done by the end of this weekend!


I hope it’s a great weekend for you! 🙂 We’re in town this weekend but going out of town the next two weekends so I’m excited to be at home to wrap up some projects and relax with Matt.


I’m linking up with Lauren for High Five for Friday and with Diary of a Real Housewife for Friday Favorites :-)  You can see my other Friday posts here.
