Five on Friday!

Hey y'all!  So, I know I might of said yesterday that I would have house pictures up today but, my bed was calling me earlier than normal lately last night & I obliged.  My house is still a wreck (because you know it has to look tip top before I post pictures, duh!) & I was just plain tired!

After getting so much sleep last night I woke up this morning all kinds of bright eyed!  Love it & now I'm ready for the weekend!!!

Today I'm linking up with one of my favorite southern gals, Christina & comp for Five on Friday!

One - Earlier this week Matt & I finally finished our flower beds out front!  You might remember that a month ago we pulled out all of the old bushes that were taking over the front of our house.  It felt great to have a fresh, clean start but then we never got around to actually finishing the project.  Finally this week we did & I love how they turned out!  It does sort of look funny since it's all so little, for now, but it will all grow eventually!

Two - TONIGHT we are having 2 of my BEST friends over & their men for a cook-out and birthday celebration for one!  I'm so excited to have friends over & to celebrate Chelle's birthday!  I think this will be our first "official" cook-out with friends at our new house!  I'm putting together some decorations to get us in the celebrating mood... I'm thinking some balloons are a must!

Three - Saturday is going to be filled with A LOT of house work & to be honest, I'm really excited about it!  We have a deadline of 2 weeks from now to be completely finished!  We're going to be pushing it but, I know we'll get there!!!

Four - I know this may be sort of old news but I have rediscovered Bath & Body Works Japenese Cherry Blossom lotion.  I LOVE it so much!  It makes your skin feel silky soft & smells oooh so good!  Matt has even complimented me on it several times... & you know how guys can be when it comes to smelly lotions & perfumes!

Go get ya some!

Five - This quote has been speaking to me a lot lately!  Found it on Pinterest & I've seen it floating around Instagram too.  There's really no question why it is though because it's obvious... I've needed this reminder lately.  I know God is always by my side & guiding me through every turn & bump in the road, it's just nice to have this reminder from time to time.

I hope y'all have a GREAT weekend!!!


  1. The first cookout at your house sounds like such a good time! Wish I lived closer :) Can't wait to see the finished product of all y'alls hard work on the house! My dream is to buy a "fixer upper" and get all HGTV on it haha!!

  2. Always a great reminder to have! Hope you guys have fun this weekend with your cookout and housework!

  3. Sounds like a great weekend! I found that quote a couple of months ago and LOVED it! Such a truth it is.
