Top 5

May 30, 2014

What a great week! I can’t believe it’s already the weekend.  We’ve got a special couple getting married this weekend and we can’t wait to celebrate!  Cheers to a fun weekend ahead with friends, laughter and hopefully, a lot of dancing (fingers crossed).


Here’s this week’s Top 5.


1. Celebrating Moms.  Last weekend I went home and had a blast with some of my favorite mom’s and their beautiful daughters.  I’ve been so blessed with having a bunch of different mother figures in my life – and these three are pretty special.  It was so nice spending quality time catching up, telling stories and pampering ourselves with a little R&R.

My favorite part of the weekend was a dueling piano’s concert at Cedar Ridge Winery – so much fun!

2. Decorate with wood.  I love the look of this industrial wood table.  Found on Etsy.

3. A Doughnut Party. Officially on my bucket list.

4. Umm HELLO! How cool is this??! Again, shop on Etsy.

5. Comparison is the thief of joy.  Such a good lesson for all facets of life.  I know it’s hard, but try and stop comparing yourself to others.  Do what you do, and don’t worry about anyone else.
