Fireside Five for Friday!

Someone please tell me where this week went. I cannot believe we’re headed into another weekend! Sometimes it’s just scary to me how fast time seems to fly around here. I’m sure you can relate. With that said, I can’t complain that the workweek goes fast and another weekend is upon us! I live for weekends, let me tell ya. We’re having friends (and their adorable little one) from Oklahoma visit this weekend and we’re super excited!


I’m linking up for 5 on Friday with some fun bloggers, so if you want to do the same, click on the logo below!

Here we go!

ONE– One of my favorite parts of summertime is the fresh produce. I’m sure I’m not alone in this. To me, there’s nothing better than vegetables from the garden. Our friends Michelle and Thayne have two ginormous gardens this year. We, on the other hand, have zero (tear). They were super generous and sent us home with some of their loot (red potatoes, jalpenos, tomatoes, cucumbers and zucchinis)! I see zucchini bread in our future…photo(5)


TWO– Just take a look at this beauty. Eric just finished the guest bedroom headboard! Trust me, he’ll be doing a post on how this gem came together so you can make one yourself. I told him that a rustic barnwood headboard would be cool, so in prime Eric fashion, he went above and beyond! He not only made it rustic with barnwood, he equipped it with two reading lights. Hello amazing! Our guests will be sleeping in style. They look pretty awesome turned on but my phone camera just wasn’t doing it justice. photo(3)


THREE–  Well, last week the nursery looked like a garage sale, and this week it’s beginning to look more like the nursery I had envisioned. I really had no idea how much stuff goes into a baby’s room. It’s definitely not where I want it to be…it’s a tad on the cluttered side I’d say, but it’s getting there. And honestly, I do realize that our baby doesn’t care what her nursery looks like, and really it just needs to be functional. But as a new mommy, I want this room to be everything I have dreamed of! photo(1)


 FOUR– Can you say SHARK WEEK? Who doesn’t love this epic week of Discovery Channel heaven? There’s something pretty fascinating about the massive creatures that makes me want to record every show and watch them consecutively while eating junk food. Who knows what that’s about. I’m pretty sure people take off an entire week of work for this ish.


FIVE– I feel like my husband deserves an award for his handyman skills. He tiled this bathroom like a boss! It looks so professional, it’s unreal. And the craziest part is that it was his first time tiling with real tile, a tile saw, etc. We tiled the bathroom in the old house with peel and sticks and grout, but this was the real deal, and I was of NO help this time around. I’m really just in awe of his skill and determination. He is one of the hardest workers I know. And he does this all after a long day’s work! What a champ. Just add it to the long list of reasons I’m blessed to call him my guy 🙂


Happy Friday! Hope you all have a great weekend 🙂

    I love that headboard, we are in the process of re-purposing a door for our master bedroom! I also love fresh Summer produce and Shark Week.
