High Five for Friday

shirt: Loft  cardigan: Gap skirt: TJMaxx  

1.  I was reading a real fashion blog the other day and it was giving tips on taking good outfit pictures.
One piece of advice was take pictures in new and interesting places. 
 You mean you don't want to see my deck every day?
  Welcome to my back yard.  
So much more exciting.

2.  Thank you for all your encouragement and sweet comments on my post on Monday.  I think this whole blogging thing has been a great hobby, distraction and source of encouragement with everything happening this year.  


3. One of my best friends sent me this yellow bracelet in the mail this week just to say she was thinking of me.  It made me feel so loved.  And this other bracelet I saw on groopdealz for only $12 so I had it engraved with our wedding date as an early anniversary present to myself.  


4. It was a struggle going back to school on Monday.  I spilled coffee on myself in the car, left my purse at home, my key wouldn't work to get into school and I realized my grades for report cards were due that day instead of the next.  I texted Chris to tell him and his response was 
"Want me to throw coffee on myself and throw my phone out the window and call it even?"  
Sometimes he does know the right thing to say.  

You should make it. 


Mine didn't look this pretty, but I'm sure tasted just as good.  

Happy Weekend!!


Pin It!

**Does NOT make me look preggo. Oops. Get it to gether Katie, get it together!

Ha! I totally wondered where your deck was when I saw your outfit picture. It's hard to switch it up too much when you have to use a stand, though, right? I remember you saying you use a stand - so whatever works is great in my book. I just like to focus on the looks you put together! Thanks for partying with me at Drab to Fab. Here's the link to this weeks, party! Come on back to share more of your lovely looks.
