Five on Friday

Hello Friday and the long weekend!!!  I'm linking up with Natasha, Darcy, & the girls for another Five on Friday.  I'm just loving these posts; it's a fun way to share those little tid bits that aren't significant enough for a full post!

Pandora now has a sleep timer setting!  I used to love falling asleep to music in college; now, I just need to convince Conor (and Liam) that some soft tunes would be perfect for bedtime!  Although, I would also probably need to pay for the fancy app, because I would not like commercials coming on while I'm drifting off to sleep.  Either way, I'm really excited about this new feature!

I love these Little Shirley vases!  They are perfect for bathrooms, kitchen counters, guest rooms, or anywhere in the home really.  They are super petite in size, so just a few flowers or fresh herbs are all your need to make them look full.  They come in the most amazing colors, making it so hard to choose a favorite.  They are also the perfect hostess gift or stocking stuffer (I had three in mine last year!); it's never too early to start your gift lists.

I'm starting to get a little stressed thinking about what Liam is going to be for Halloween.  I totally dropped the ball last year...  I really want to make Liam a costume; it just seems so much more meaningful than something store bought.  However, last year I never found the time while trying to take care of a newborn.  This year I want to plan ahead, but I need to decide what my little L should be...  I don't have any great ideas yet, hence the stress!

With Fall being just around the corner, I'm starting to think about what house projects Conor & I will start once the cooler weather sets in and we're spending more time indoors.  I really want to create a fun space for my computer, planner, bills, etc.  Right now we have our laptop set up on the bar counter in our kitchen; while this keeps me in the center of the house, it's not a very organized space at all.  I want a place where I can go relax with a cup of tea or glass of wine and blog & plan away!  I'm envisioning something simple, like this:

This labor day weekend I am spending my days with family on Flathead Lake!  Such a beautiful place; I love being back in the Northwest!  Weekends just don't get better than this.  Good bye Summer, hello Fall!  I will be pulling out all my Autumn decor on Tuesday once we are back from our trip.  Enjoy your weekend every one!


  1. i LOVE LOVE LOVE Flathead lake! We go there every year for thanksgiving. We want to buy a cabin down there! It's so beautiful!!!

  2. It really is one of the most beautiful places! I love to visit, but don't think I could live there; I need a slightly bigger city!


I love reading all your comments!
