Five on Friday

One. Aztec Print
Aztec print, it's seriously everywhere! I got a couple adorable tops from Apricot Lane with this great fall print & I noticed it's popping up everywhere!

Two. O.P.I  Matte Nail Envy
Hands down just loving this stuff for strengthening my nails.  Between prenatal vitamins and this miracle-worker, my nails are super strong and thick now.  I used to bite my nails until college, & even still today, I can't help but pick at them.  Seriously, I keep a nail clipper like everywhere.  What I like most about matte finish is it's more natural looking & not shiny.  

Three. Our Best Bites
I just came across Our Best Bites on another blog that I follow Hello! Happiness.  Wow, what a gem. There are so many awesome recipes, many of them seem very easy & with ingredients that can be reused an not wasted after one use (like that Ricotta cheese that went bad in my fridge... YUCK).  Totally worth checking out.  I totally stalked their page all night Thursday night & I'm totally inspired by these two.  I absolutely love cooking & I'm always scouring the interweb for new recipes.  I'm really lucky that my husband literally like everything that I make.  It's nice to be able to cook anything I want & get a nice compliment about how great it is practically every day.  (Thanks Joe <3) 

seriously how good do these Saucy Hot Dogs look!?

Four.  Metallic Finish
I am super pumped for this 16x20 metallic finish print I had my wonderful friend Heather @ HK Photography order for me.  This is probably my #1 favorite photo of Joe and I (besides the hundreds of wedding photos we have & the countless other pics that HK has taken for us.)  One of my favorite things about it is that it's taken down at our property where we are planning to build in the near future.  This picture just doesn't do it justice, but I highly recommend the metallic finish, I also go my blog header photo in a 5x7 in the metallic finish & I think I'll end up getting it bigger one day.  

seriously this picture doesn't even come close to how beautiful it is in person

Five. FURminator
If any of you have pets, especially ones that shed A LOT like my pug Frank does, than this is the tool for you.  This thing has been so amazing.  The FURminator is made for both dogs & cats, long & short hair.  It's a little pricey (I paid $35 for mine for short haired, #20 dogs), but it is well worth the money.  The amount of hair this thing picks up is unreal.  There is even a vacuum attachment you can buy so when you brush, the hair gets sucked up into the vacuum.  Too bad Frankie literally bites the vacuum, I don't think he would be a big fan of that attachment.

I've totally been slacking on the blog, but we've had quite the lull lately, which we've totally been loving.  This last weekend we brought our pop up to the property & camped, this weekend we're planning to see a blues band at Starved Rock, looking forward to another quiet weekend. 


  1. Over from the link up! That photos looks amazing with a metallic finish!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! The metallic finish just gives it an extra pop, I did a boudoir session for my husband for our one year & I did the entire album in metallic finish & I'm just glowing in every pic, very beautiful

  2. Oh awesome! I am going to Ulta after work and I need to check out that polish. I am a BIG nail biter and along with Biotin I will do anything to help my nails.

    1. Thanks for stopping by! Totally worth it, & it works right away too, hope you enjoy!

  3. I am obsessed with Aztec print right now. I want a throw blanket! I just can't find the perfect one...yet!

    1. Maybe check Etsy!! I bet you will find one if not there, somewhere this fall, good luck!
