    FIVE {2.12.16}

    Happy Friday! It’s been a heck of a week and I am so glad to see the end of the week. Let’s get to my five, shall we? ONE This little space of mine was down for a little over two days this week… because I changed some settings with my domain and did it wrong! Talk about a stressful two days! I’m so glad it all seems to be squared away now and I’m back in business! You don’t realize just how much your blog means to you until you somehow mess up, right? TWO It looks like one…

    Friday! {10.16.15}

    Happy Friday! I hope you all had an amazing week. Our fall has been pretty busy, so here’s a quick five before the weekend.  ONE My October Stitch Fix arrived yesterday with lots of fun things! I think I’ll be wearing some of those things for family photos, so I’m excited to have new pretty things to wear! Plus, if you read Courtney’s or Laura’s blogs, you may see something familiar! TWO Good changes have been happening at work. My department finally added a second admin (I’ve been the only one for over 5 years), so I know that will…

    Five {9.4.15}

    Happy Friday! I hope you all have lots of fun things planned for this holiday weekend, which I’m so pumped is finally here! While I’ve mostly stopped linking up my five every week, it’s so fun to do it about once a month and link up – so here’s today’s five! ONE Hokie football starts in only 3 days, and I am getting so excited. Okay, so I’m also incredibly nervous. We open the season on Monday with a home game against Ohio State (who we miraculously beat last year), and I’m so nervous I can’t stand it. I just…

    Five {8.7.15}

    Friday? Finally. Time for a quick five… ONE I am exhausted. This summer has been absolutely nuts, and there’s no sign of it slowing down anytime soon. I know I had a long weekend this past weekend, but it was so busy and I miss having a chance to relax and just BE. I feel so overwhelmed lately with everything going on, and I’m just trying to make it until Labor Day weekend at this point… only 28 days to go! TWO One of the reasons I’m continually exhausted is because we’re preparing for a big office move… and to…

    Friday! {7.24.15}

    Happy Friday! We all know that summer Fridays are the best days of the week… and of course that a quick five is the best way to do it. Here’s mine: ONE My sisters and I got back from Blacksburg last night and it was amazing to leave knowing it wouldn’t be long before we go back again. Andrea is mostly squared away for heading to school next month, and it’s cool to see the beginnings of how she’ll experience Virginia Tech versus how I did – completely different majors, for one thing. I’m hoping it’s a smooth transition for…

    Friday! {7.17.15}

    Happy Friday! We made it through another week of summer! Rather than go on and on about how I’m excited the weekend is here, I’ll just get to my five… ONE Today is Eid, so Abbie’s daycare is closed today since our provider is celebrating. Abbie got a fun treat too – an entire day with her Aunt Melanie. My sister took today off work and is doing us a big favor by hanging out with our girl today. She came up last night, and I told Abbie in the morning that she was going to see Mel that night……

    Happy Friday all! As always, I’m happy to see the weekend, especially after we had a holiday last weekend and this week was a full week. I am beyond ready for 5pm to roll around and to have a few days with my family. Anyway, let’s get to this week’s five… ONE My mind has been so full lately, of all the things I want to do, need to do, my life… just a lot of noise going on inside (but that’s a post for another day). I had been thinking about it for awhile, but I finally splurged this…

    Friday! {6.26.15}

    It’s been about a month since I participated in a Friday linkup (seriously, where did this month go?), so I thought I’d join in today. Here’s what’s happening in our neck of the woods… ONE Abbie caught some kind of stomach bug and I stayed home with her yesterday. Of course, it started with her getting sick in my car on the way home from daycare. (Of course, it always happens in MY car…). Stomach bugs are the worst. The only plus side is I got lots of cuddles and day home to spend with her… even if she didn’t…

    Happy Friday! Let’s get to this week’s five, shall we? ONE You may have noticed it looks a little bit different around here today! Fran from Freeborboleta Designs installed my new blog design last night and I’m in love! I wanted something simple and feminine with lots of room for customization, and she took all my ideas and brought them to life! If you are ever looking for a custom design, Fran is WONDERFUL. She’s responsive, understood my crazy requests that I didn’t know the words for, and extremely reasonable with her rates. One of the downsides to being on…

    Happy Friday! First of all, I looked at the date today and realized that it looks pretty cool today. I know, I’m a total nerd. Anyway, let’s jump in with this Friday’s five, shall we? ONE My mom and sister are coming up on Saturday to watch Abbie so Chris and I can go see Pitch Perfect 2 – which was 100% his idea. He thought the first one was hilarious so he’s willing to listen to the acapella. Yay for date night! TWO Did you see my quick post yesterday giving you the chance to ask me anything? So…
