Five on Friday!

Happy, happy Friday!


– ONE – I am so ready for the weekend! Tonight we are heading Uptown for dinner and the Clefhangers concert
with a group of friends. Tomorrow Matt’s parents are coming in town to
see our nursery progress and on Sunday my seester flies in to visit for a
few days! So we have lots of good stuff on the books for the weekend!

– TWO – Reminder! Don’t forget to enter my Royal Design Studio Stencil Giveaway! Contest ends Tuesday!

– THREE – OPI’s Heart Throb…the perfect Valentine nail color!

– FOUR – So, eh, Matt bought another gun this past weekend. I’m calling it his early push present so it gives me ammo {no pun intended} for when I pick my gift out. I blame my dad for this. Boys and guns. I mean, can you even call this a gun? It looks more like a military weapon and he’s already purchased lots of scary looking accessories for it too. I digress…

– FIVE – Starting off Friday morning right with some festive Valentine donuts!


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…

    Exciting weekend! I used to visit Elise at UNC every time there was a ClefHangers concert…they are amazing! Oh my lord, Spyros is obsessed with guns…obsessed. Goodness, boys and their guns…I feel ya 100% girl. Have a happy, happy weekend! And totally jealous of your krispy kremes–love how they have heart shaped donuts on valentine's day! xx.

    We should make a PSA for other women whose husbands want to buy a gun. They can't buy just one! Once they buy one, they want another. My husband bought a handgun last year and then he wanted to buy another, "one for each hand."

    Kevin bought a scary military gun recently too and I have not been happy about it. I'm glad to know other normal guys have the same obsession

    I am DYING for some of those donuts–well those and the conversation hearts from the first picture. Your weekend plans make me so jealous. We moved to Buies Creek (a small town about an hour outside of Raleigh) almost a year ago and my heart still PANGS for Charlotte and good Uptown weekends. Enjoy it!! And have lots of fun with your sister!! Plus–your planner with the washi tape is adorable!

    I LOVE the nail color! I need to paint mine this weekend. And those donuts, oh my gracious. Thankfully they are nowhere near me, or I might not be sticking to my diet this morning. Happy Friday!Cat

    Oh I love that nail color! That gun is super scary looking, it's funny how excited he is in that photo though.. haha! Men! I'm also loving how organized your planner is, it looks so pretty compared to the scribbles in my planner! Have a great weekend!

    what a great weekend! Loving your planner photo…so clean and cute. Mine is an ink disaster!! And I still think the nursery wall is too cute! Thanks for hosting the link-up – I've really enjoyed all of the blogs I've "met" through this weekly meeting. =)

    My husband is the same with guns right now….he feels like he always needs a different one…right now he is building his own for a "project" to keep him busy…they just sit in the safe 90% of the time…I don't get it, but I guess they say the same thing about our hobbies haha πŸ˜‰

    Your dayplanner is so cute. What do you use to mark everything? Stickers, washi tape, etc?

    I mean seriously. Boys and guns. And, they complain about our shoes/makeup/nail polishes…

    So jealous that you are going to a Clefhanger concert. I'm a UNC alum and miss those concerts a lot.

    Just when I think you can't get any cuter, you get cuter! πŸ™‚ (Had this thought when I looked at your little perfect calendar picture with the heart candies. πŸ™‚ ) Anyway, sounds like a fun weekend ahead! I had to laugh at the gun. Thomas and I decided to not do push presents because we felt like we were already spending so much money on both the nursery and our room (we redecorated), but I guess our room redo could be considered a push present to both of us, haha. However, if we HAD done push presents (guys get push presents?!? Lol!) I could totally see Thomas getting a gun, too. I am sure we could have lots of conversations about being wives of guys who have gun collecting as a hobby!! I am very excited for you and your weekend with your family and looking at the nursery. Have a ball! You deserve it, mama! πŸ™‚ Cheers,Samara

    What is it with boys and guns?! I just don't get it!

    After seeing those donuts my car might accidentally drive to Krispy Kreme after work!! My husband is the same way with the guns. He has many of them and they get decked out in accessories that make them look like some kind of rambo something! We bought a safe for the collection and it takes up half a wall downstairs. He says they are an investment!! You probably shouldn't tell Matt this but Jordan's favorite websites are and Midway!

  35. Katie
    February 7, 2014 / 6:46 pm

    omg all I can think about now are those donuts! They looks DELISH! What else was I going to say here…..Oh yeah I've been meaning to tell you I showed my husband your's accent wall in your nursery. He randomly said he wanted a design of some sort on at least one of the walls in the nursery. My eyes lit up and I said let me show you something. I showed him your wall and he just stared at me and said I hope you don't love that bc there is no way I'm doing that hahahah

    Those donuts look delicious! And it's always fun to hang with your seester!Though, having a girl, Matt could claim that he's getting some practice in for when those pesky boys come around wanting to date your baby girl. That's my boyfriend's reasoning, anyway. His reason for wanting two guns? Two baby girls = two firearms.

    Your planner is sooooo cute and organized it really makes me want to get one and start writing things down on pencil and paper again. And I love that polish color!

    Your planner looks so neat and organized…LOVE! And, a light pink nail is my favorite. I tend to go back and forth from light pink, French manicure, and taupe. And, I'm cracking up at your husband with his new gun. My husband is the exact same way! He loves his guns and loves to buy accessories for them. Boys and their toys. πŸ˜‰

    What a great color for nails.. I rarely ever do pinks but I'm liking the one you have. And the gun– I grew up around them and then Men who love them. It never seems to get old for them, does it?
