Five on Friday!

Happy Friday! Looks like we have another rainy weekend on the books. That’s okay because that just means we’ll need to stay inside and work on nursery projects. And tonight we have a triple date of mexican food and a movie. I am so ready for 5 pm already!


 – ONE – New lipstick and a new planner. Is it just me or is a new tube of lipstick one of the most amazing treats ever? I just love breaking in new lipstick and a new planner! The colors I picked up from MAC are Twig and Plumful. 

 – TWO – I know, I know. I am always blogging about tulips, but I just
can’t help it! Matt brought me 3 bunches of white tulips home about a
week ago and they are still going strong on our mantel!

 – THREE – Earlier this week I had a random craving for Taco Bell. I don’t know why because it’s probably been 3+ years since I’ve frequented that drive thru but I couldn’t resist. I opted for the new potato tacos and was actually impressed! Taco Bell has totally stepped up their game!

– FOUR – A whole new set of OPI colors!

– FIVE – I baked two batches of Funfetti cupcakes last weekend – one for the baby shower and one for Matt. We’ve been eating these all week long so they deserved another shout out. 

 Wanna join  Darci, April, Natasha and I on the Friday fun? You can link-up on any of our four blogs every Friday! All you have to do is…

1.)  Write  your post about five things you’re lovin’ this week (or any five things you want to share!).
2.)  Share the logo on your blog and link back.
3.)  Link-up at the bottom of the post so some new readers can check out your five things and say hello!

    LOVE anything OPI and those Funfetti cupcakes look a-mah-zing! I've also had a more recent craving for Taco Bell (haven't had it since college), so now I feel like I need to go! Great five!

    Love that planner by Sugar Paper. I'm a huge fan of paper planners; currently using an Erin Condren Life Planner BUT I have a soft spot for polka dots. Good choice!

    Ok, I have to laugh about your Taco Bell craving!!! I did the EXACT same thing when I was preggo! I hadn't been to Taco Bell in years, I mean, years! And all of a sudden one day I was craving their bean burrito!!!! HA! Those tulips are gorgeous!!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Christina!!

    So I'm totally that girl whose guilty of frequenting Taco Bell once a week. I know it has to stop, but their tacos really are good! I didn't even know they had a potato taco, I'll have to look for that next time I make a Taco Bell stop. I picked up a SugarPaper planner from Target this week too. I love new planners!! Enjoy your weekend! It's going to be rain here in Charleston too, but that's okay because I have a TON of house stuff to do that I neglected over the

    I'm a total Taco Bell fan… And I'm not sure if I'm proud about this or not ;). I'm also loving those new nail colors… I will have to check them out next time!

    Love everything about this 5! I don't go to Taci Bell ever either…. Unless I'm pregnant then I crave it bad, and it's SO good!

    Girl. I love some Taco Bell, too. Their simple cheese roll-ups — I inhale them in an embarrassingly short amount of time. And I agree with Jillian, their fresco menu is good — fresher and lighter on the calories!Plumful by MAC is my go-to … will look fab with your coloring. πŸ™‚ Enjoy date night and the movie!

    hope you rock that lipstick tonight! i have a massive stash that i never really wear! AND i loooove all those OPI colors, was that a set or did you get them all individually? have i ever told you about my taco bell obsession? we can't truly be friends until you know… in college, i ate taco bell at LEAST twice a week. thank the Lord for a semi-high metabolism. once andrew and i started dating and well into our first and 2nd year of marriage, we ate taco bell EVERY sunday. so much that i thought he might propose to me in one (thankfully, he didnt) still…living in charlotte, i'll have a lazy sunday taco bell dinner about once a month (at least). still wanna be friends? πŸ˜‰

    ahhh, taco bell. isn't it funny how one fast food place can bring back so many random memories? every time i go back, which is not very often…like a once in a blue moon situation…i always burst out laughing thinking of the goofy things friends and i did back in high school/college. ah, good times, TB. good times.
