Oh Hey Friday

Friday again. My third favorite day of the week (Saturday being first), and that means link up time. A late link up for me, but a link up nonetheless. So let's get down to business.

One. Wedding Anniversary. In 10 days, I will have been married to my handsome football loving, gardening fanatic, super opinionated and amazing daddy to our girls for two years. Two years. Doesn't seem like a long time, but we have done a lot since getting married. We made two unbelievably adorable identical twin girls. That my friends is a big deal. I sure do love my hubby with all my might and can't wait to spend the next 100 years together (yes we are living until we are in our 130s).

Two. This is a week of celebrations. It started off with my 32nd birthday and yesterday was my father's birthday (I was the best birthday present to my dad!) and tomorrow we are celebrating my father's retirement. My dad retired from the Army after almost 34 years. So crazy. I am excited to see what the future holds for him and my mom. Plus now we have a very free babysitter!

Three. I know it as just my birthday and I did buy myself something small (a Tahoe Made sweatshirt), but I need this necklace in my life. I have been coveting one for a long time (I posted about it several times. Specifically for Christmas) and payday is only a week away. I am thinking if I buy it in the right color, I can wear it to the wedding I am in in less than two weeks. What do you think?

Four. I am finally getting my long awaited wish. We are going to remodel our kitchen. Ok, we are not going to, but we are going to hire someone to do it. We have been toying with the idea of selling our house and buying a new one, but we love our neighborhood and the houses we find in our price range either have an old kitchen like ours, or are smaller than our house with an upgraded kitchen. So we decided to remodel. Now we are in the process of looking for a contractor for some estimates and plan ideas. Then to financing and getting a new kitchen. I am giddy with excitement. 

Five. I finally purchased shoes for Nathalie's wedding and they came in and look good and fit well. Now I need to get my lazy butt in gear and try on the dress and shoes together to make sure they work well. And I need to schedule my alterations (today) as their wedding is two weeks away. My dress is just right in the chest and huge everywhere else. Pumping/breastfeeding mom problems. But I am weaning so I am worried these lovely ladies won't be as big by the time the wedding hits. Might need to invest in a good padded bra, haha.


  1. Happy Anniversary! Also, congrats on the kitchen remodel. I look forward to seeing it all come together for you. LOVE the Kendra Scott necklace. I've had my eye on a few myself. I also have the teal bracelet and adore it.

    1. The teal bracelet is beautiful. I love all the jewelry. Now only if I had a store local (but that could also be a problem too, haha). I can't wait to share the progress of our kitchen from start to finish!

  2. Do you have a Kendra Scott store close? You get 50% off one item during your bday month!

    1. Really? I don't have one near me. Do they offer it online?
