Finally Friday {Take 6}

Hey y'all!  It's FINALLY FRIDAY!!!  

This week seems to have flown by, actually!  My partner in crime, Autumn, returned back to work this week from her maternity leave.  She had a sweet little baby boy, named Rylyn!  Since we spent most of the week getting her caught up with work and catching up as friends, the work week flew by!  

We're bringing you our Friday Fives today as usual, but I'm also going to show you a little project I completed last Spring!  I planned to do a separate tutorial post for you, but apparently someone snuck into my house, grabbed my camera and deleted my "before" and "during" pictures from last year.  (because obviously, I wouldn't have deleted them myself... :/ )


We finally have some spring weather showing up here and we jumped at the opportunity to work outside and plant some flowers.

One of our favorite places to be is outside, so we spend a lot of time on our back patio!  I picked up these planter boxes last year on clearance.  I think they were like 2 or 3 bucks each.  They were a silverish/grayish color.  Remember our Mr. and Mrs. Signs?  I used the same concept here to personalize the planters.  I used my Cricut machine and cut my letters out in vinyl.  I stuck them to the planter and then spray painted them brown.  I removed the vinyl stickers and........ VOILA!!!!  

I like that it adds a little flair to the patio! (P.S. - lots of patio/outdoor DIY posts coming soon!)

Alright, onto our Friday Fives!!!


1)  Paisley give kisses now. . . enough said.  (seriously, melt my heart RIGHT NOW)

2)  This past weekend Charlie and I went to an Anniversary Party for some family friends.  We were talking to a group of people and one of our friend's mom started telling her sister about our blog.  She was telling her all about it and how she should check it out and then proceeds to tell her how AMAZING Charlie is!  It went something like this..."no really, you have got to check it out.  It will make you want to marry Charlie!"  (Charlie smiles and nudges my arm)  "Their bathroom makeover is enough to make you LUST for him!"  (Charlie smiles even bigger and again, nudges me {to make sure I'm hearing this}).  So, Rebecka I'd just like to thank you for giving my oh-so-talented hubby such a big ego!!!! haha!  Randomly all week, he has reminded me that women all over the world want to marry him and that they are all 'lusting' over him! Back to reality, Charlie!!! :) (disclaimer: I also think he is pretty amazing...just don't tell him!)

3)  Autumn and I are getting pedicures today! WOO to the HOO!!! I am in need of one in a really bad way!

4)  I hate it when my favorite T.V. shows don't have a new episode every week! 

5)  I made some upgrades to the blog this week!  A new header and page tabs, new social media icons and an instagram feed!  And a new "about us" page!  What do you think???


1) I know we as humans are supposed to forgive others for their wrong doings........but, I think that when they find the SOB's who did the Boston Marathon Bombing, they should let the Father of the little boy who died, and the other family members of those who also passed, do what they so please.  I cannot imagine the emotions one would have dealing with the loss of a child, family member, etc in such a way.

2) For awhile now Paisley has been shaking her head "yes" to every question you would ask her.  Well, Emily's friend Jen came to the house the other day and taught Paisley to shake her head "no".....Now Paisley has become confused on how to shake her head when asked a question so she makes a circle motion.  What goes around comes around Jen!!!

3) We get to spend the weekend with some great friends this weekend so we're excited about that.

4)  My home town of Ottawa, IL is having some major flooding.....there are 2 rivers (Fox and Illinois) that meet in the middle of town and are causing some major damage.  They have been evacuating people from their homes and have shut the high school down.  Please send a prayer out to these people who have been effected that they stay safe and don't lose their homes and belongings.

5) How much wood could a woodchuck, chuck.  If a woodchuck, could chuck wood?  I'm not real sure but if a woodchuck is any good at making some furniture I could sure use a hand. (and for those of you who just started clapping, we're not friends anymore).  Have a great weekend y'all.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Make sure you're following along!  See you next week!
