Fireside Five For Friday

It’s my favorite day of the week! Is it just me or do you sing the song “It’s Friday” every single Friday morning?! That’s normal, right? It’s such a catchy tune and really gets the day off to a good start. Like always, this week has flown by and we’re getting ready to start an amazing weekend with friends!


As is my new Friday tradition, I’m linking up with the gals at the good life blog, A. Liz Adventures, Carolina Charm, and Hello!Happiness for 5 on Friday. Click on the logo to link up too!



The new valences are up! I went with a pale peach for the fabric. We’ll get a full tutorial on how we made them on the blog soon 🙂 But for now, I’m just enjoying another thing checked off the nursery list! P.S.- ignore the gross red rocker…it will (hopefully) be recovered soon!




Another shower! My BFFs Hannah and Carly threw me the most special, thoughtful, beautiful shower! I loved every bit of it, didn’t want it to end, and got sad when I left knowing that it was my last first friend baby shower. Aww, tear! (Note little miss Georgia putting a rattle in my mouth during the picture, haha)




The dining room paint job is complete! I got the OK from my OB last week to paint….if it was “well ventilated”. Pregnancy isn’t going to stop this DIYer from painting! I just wanted to make sure it was safe for the babe. So last Saturday, while I went to town on the dining room, Eric painted the guest bathroom (more on that later). It feels so good to have it done! The red that was there before just wasn’t working with the flow of the house and I think this green is a much better fit. It has definitely taken some getting used to…and it didn’t exactly match the paint swatch I had color matched, but it’s growing on me.

Check out those sweet new garage doors! When we moved into our house in February, the garage doors worked, but were rickety, let a draft in and weren’t exactly pleasing to the eye. So when we saw a sale on these beauties at Home Depot, we decided to order them. Eric did an amazing job at installing them. I’m always amazed at how the guy figures out all of these complicated projects. Such a handy man!

Please pardon the grainy picture. My BFF Hannah made me this amazing bunting with Charlotte’s name on it for my shower! What a crafty little gal she has become. I literally had just been looking for bunting exactly like this on Etsy, so she read my mind! I love the fact that Charlotte will have something handmade in her room from her Auntie Hannah! So, so sweet 🙂


Enjoy your weekends!
