5 on Friday {2/13}

The weekend is here! Horray! That cute, pudgy flying baby will be making his rounds tomorrow with those arrows: be on the look out for flowers and chocolates ladies. So let's all link up and enjoy our last day of the week together before the romance begins!

   Valentine's Day. I know at this point y'all are just as ready for it to come and go as I am; after all of the romance that is headed our way of course! I am just so ready for the ridiculous perfume commercials to stop being played. It's a running joke in my house that if you don't know what to get a woman for Christmas or Valentine's - obviously she will love random perfumes that have people on horseback and swimming in the Mediterranean to promote them. Totally. Lol. I prefer flowers personally.

   I finished the carrier cover this week. I love it. Classic with a touch of color and pattern. It's a nice dark color so it acts like a blackout curtain does at home when Lizzie sleeps; but it's a light cotton fabric so she won't sweat under the black. I know black is not everyone's cut of tea, but I've got a few pinks and whites up my sleeve : ) Be on the lookout for the tutorial on Monday!

    I am redecorating the house again. I can't help it. I have been watching a lot of HGTV lately and the decor bug bit me very hard this time. Our bedroom got a little face lift with new art above the bed and raising the curtains to the ceiling. It really does make a huge difference when it comes to ceiling height. The room feels so much taller now. I love walking into our bedroom now that it looks a little more polished. I think I sleep better when the room is all done up.

   I have some big plans for that plain headboard of mine. It matches our wall color way too much right now. I wish we could paint but as you know, renting. Boo. So instead of that I bought all of the supplies to pretty the headboard up like this one. Now I just need to start it, finish it and love it.

   And I have even more plans for new throw pillows on the bed. I want to match the gold in the new pieces above the bed. I'm leaning towards the arrows or maybe even our monogram in gold right in the middle of a nice, fluffy pillow.

New projects always make my heart go pitter patter!   


  1. I actually love the idea of the black, my little one also had black out curtains in his that would be a great idea for on the go!

    1. It really helps if she falls asleep while I'm in the middle of running errands. She stays asleep a lot longer then she used to without it!

  2. That room looks so restful and classy, I love it!

    1. Thank you so much for the compliment. I'm trying to make it our little relaxation room to enjoy at the end of crazy days.
