Five On Friday


Yesterday we had family pictures taken (you can see a sneak peak on my Instagram) so now I'm on Christmas card lock down and these foiled cards are swoon worthy. This is one thing I get SO excited for every year and I always try to send my cards out the day after Thanksgiving. It's like saying, "okay now it's full on Christmas y'all"! Plus I'm so giddy over the fact that we have Maddox now! Christmas cards seem so much better with kiddos in them :)

I guess I didn't post last year's Christmas card, but the first picture in this post is the one we used and I love it so much!


Thanks to Stephanie from Olive and Tate I purchased this top from Old Navy this week. It is so comfy and my favorite color! It's also the exact duplicate of this Anthropologie version except I'll take $19 over $98 any day of the week. Who pays $98 for a shirt? WHO!?


please excuse my lack of makeup, hence the black and white!

I bought this Ardell Lash Extension Starter Kit with high hopes and it totally came through! Only $10 and 30 minutes later I have lashes for days! I have been pricing lash extensions for about a month now and nail salons were ranging from $50 - $160. Um no thank you? My frugal self couldn't do it. If you have some patience to spare I recommend doing it yourself because it's not that hard.


Jon and I shot my best friends engagement pictures and I just finished editing them. They are so precious and it makes my heart so happy we were able to do this for them! Tomorrow I'm heading to NC to wedding dress shop with her! Eeeeek! Wedding fun in full swing :)



I have to give a shout-out to my home girl Jana and her new shop Bouvardian. She has been working so hard the last few months to make this dream come true and since her shop has been open for a month she has been killing it. I'm so proud of her and her products are beautiful! I bought this lovely lace tunic and I wear it all the time. I'll have it on the blog next week. Take a moment to go check her shop out!

Linking up with Darci, April, Christina and Natasha. Oh Hey Friday with September Farm and The Farmers Wife and Friday Favorite with Momfessional.

  1. Yay for Jana!! Can't wait to see how you style the dress. I also would love to know how those lashes do for you. I've never wanted to do eyelash extensions because I heard they make your actual eyelashes fall out and mine are fairly long so I didn't want to risk it. I would like a bit of a fuller look though so this is definitely something I would try. Let me know how they hold up if you can! Oh and I ALSO can't wait to see your Christmas cards! Goodness, so much to look forward to on your blog! :) Have a great weekend girl! xx

  2. So fun! I love Jana's shop! I have started my own invitation, stationery, & calligraphy company in April! So, I am doing our Christmas Cards, along with a handful of orders (so far!) for other people! :) This is the best job ever. :) XO -Alexandra

  4. I am heading to Target this weekend to get those Ardell lashes! I had no idea something like that existed! Do they stay on well even if you use eye make up remover to remove eye make up?

  5. I am all about some Christmas cards as well this year. As our first year as a married couple I'm just so giddy with excitement, but I bet having a kid is just that much better. You and Jon are such talented photographers! Your best friend is so lucky to have y'all be able to take them. Have a fantastic weekend.

  6. You and the hubs are such talented photographers! What a beautiful photo of that couple. Love your Christmas card and the photo of your adorable family!

  7. I'm trying to figure out Xmas cards now. You're way ahead of the game, well done! I'm holding off on family pics until the baby is a year old (feb), so this year we'll likely go with a candid shot of the kids together=)
