~Five on Friday~

November 22, 2013
I'm excited to link-up with the lovely ladies of The Good LifeA. Liz AdventuresCarolina Charm & Hello Happiness! for their 5 on Friday! 

Starting this blog is by far the highlight of my week!! It's been a dream/goal of mine for a few years now and to finally have it come to fruition and have a few comments already makes me so excited!

I ordered our first Holiday Card ever from Shutterfly. I was really impressed with their selection and I can't wait to get ours next week! I've ordered a ton of books and photos from their site and have always been pleased with the quality...so lets hope this one turns out just as great!
Not our card!

I'm really excited to start decorating for the holiday's. I like to wait until the day after Thanksgiving to really amp up the decorating and gift wrapping. Thankfully with a faux tree it can stay up right into the New Year! 
Doesn't that fireplace look so inviting!?!?

We are headed to Western, MA for the weekend to celebrate a Faux Thanksgiving with my husband's family. It also happens to be my in-laws anniversary so an added bonus to celebrate with them! One of my favorite things about getting out of the city...is just that - getting out the city and enjoying the country! There are also trips to Target when we go out there ;)

This bag...just because it's on my lust/want list and I'm trying oh so hard to save and save to buy this pretty lady!

Hope you all have a wonderful and enjoyable weekend!
