Oh Happy Friday

It's a happy Friday! After a quick week, I'm excited for a wonderful weekend! Hope you are too.

1// Birthday #1
It's this special lady's birthday tomorrow, and I'm excited to get to spend most of the weekend with her! My Nonny (grandmother) is a very important person in my life, and I can't wait to celebrate another birthday with her!


2// Birthday #2
My Nonny and my best friend share the same birthday! We don't get to celebrate together as she and her husband live in Oklahoma now, but I want to wish Sarah the happiest 23rd!



3// Shopaholic
As of late, I make the argument to myself that I'm going to save my dollars and do a little less shopping. And then the next day, I buy a Kate Spade wallet, a couple of nail polishes at Target, and a pair of shoe's at Nordstrom. Okay, maybe not all in one day, but I need to be better at splurging, whether it's big or small. Inspired my Mackenzie over at Design Darling, I'm going to withhold from shopping for a month -- an entire month. Of course, I'll still buy gifts, groceries, and the necessities, and I'll still have all my wanted lists that show up here, but I'm going to put myself to the task of only buying things that I truly need, considering that so many people in the world are wanting for things like good food and clean water. I'll let you know how it goes!

With all of the handwritten letters that I've been sending, I've been trying new ways of addressing them. I'm partial to this gorgeous letter.

This photo makes me happy -- the promise of the spring that is soon to come and the warm weather that is here to stay.

  1. I have the same splurging problem. When school started, I told myself I wouldn't buy an article of clothing for the whole 11 weeks. I'm 6 weeks in and can honestly say I haven't really missed much! Good luck!

  10. I decided that February was going to be my month of not buying new beauty products, it's amazing how many old favorites I have that I've re-discovered! Maybe that will happen for you also! Your blog is so cute!

  11. ah I can't wait for spring too. and trying to do less shopping as well. I can easily get sucked into buying things I don't need, so just trying to avoid the mall!
