Five on Friday: A Link-up Party!

Hello friends! It’s Friday and the start to a long cocktail and BBQ filled weekend! So to celebrate, Darci of The Good Life, April of A. Liz Adventures, Natasha of Hello! Happiness and I are hosting a party – a link-up party to be exact!
And of course, you are invited! All you have to do is bring your 5 favorite things to the virtual party, like so…– ONE – Matt and I love to often surprise each other with small gifts – usually a nice six pack of beer, a CD/DVD, a tie, etc. for him, and flowers, candles, bath soap, etc. for me. Just little reminders that we’re thinking about each other. So when Matt said he had a surprise for me as I was about to walk out the door for work on Friday, I was excited! He handed me a small box and I was stunned when I opened it to find a Michael Kors toroise chain link watch I had {pinned} months ago. I couldn’t believe he remembered me mentioning it as a future birthday/Christmas gift. I hadn’t even talked about it since that day. He’s good. Like, really good! 

– TWO – Cork board Squares: I recently added two squares of cork board to the inside of my pantry door. It was supposed to help get rid of some of my counter top clutter, but now I love it so much I don’t want to ruin it by tacking up bills, receipts, coupons etc.!

  I got the cork from Walmart. A pack of 4 squares was less than $5 and comes with double-sided sticky stuff to hang it.

– THREE – Matt’s 2 year anniversary of his law firm! I can’t believe how quickly the time has gone! To surprise him, I coordinated with his paralegal to sneak into his office early and leave his favorite bourbon and a letter on his desk.

– FOUR – Bruce’s Sweet Potato Pancake Mix: This has actually been a long time favorite of mine. Matt introduced me to sweet potato pancakes a few years ago and I’ve been obsessed since. Sorry for holding out on you for so long!– FIVE – Friday’s work commute always requires windows down and the music up. Today I am rapping to Macklemore’s awesome new CD.

Wanna join in 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 above 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!
Happy Friday {and Memorial Day Weekend} Y’all!

What a great hubby and a super cute watch! That cork board idea is awesome! We always have counter clutter and it drives me insane so this would be perfect to get all those little things organized! Loving the 5 on Friday link-up!

I love the cork boards! What a brilliant idea. And the little "notes" banner just makes it adorable!
