High Five for Friday

I am incredibly thankful for this weekend! We are supposed to get a snow storm tonight –  tomorrow, so I am planning on staying in this weekend! It’s a total bummer since my mom’s birthday is tomorrow, but she’d rather have me safe at home then trench through 9 inches of snow! Here are some things from around the week, that have made me particularly smile. If you follow me on instagram, you may have seen them!


One /  A Sunday trip to Michaels Craft Store and I spied these pretty pretty home decor accents. Michaels has some really cute things right now, and I totally recommend you checking it out. Download the app on your phone, and be sure to use the 40% off coupon since these are considered regular priced items.



Two / Has anyone tried the cookie butter from trader joes? Michael and I are obessed. He prefers the chunky, and I can not stop eating the Cookie and Cocoa Swirl. Best Dessert Ever. and yes, I do eat straight out of the jar.


Three /  I stopped by target yesterday just to browse, and ended up picking these three tops. The two left are basic long sleeve henleys, and the one on the right is a cream long sleeve sweater. The best part- they were under $5 each! Gotta love tarjay!


Four / Last night we picked I picked up some sandwhiches for dinner from Marianos (I swear, the best grocery store in the Chicagoland area), and stopped by the flower sections. I love fresh flowers, and Marianos has a great selection. I treated myself to some pink tulips, to go along with dinner.


Five / This picture is a little grainy, but I swear we have the cutest kitties. I mean aren’t they adorable?

I hope you all had a wonderful week! What are your plans for the weekend?
