Five on Friday!

1. My Cousin, who I've been close with since we were "wee ones," and  her husband are in town from Massachusetts for a few days, and I'm so excited to be able to spend time with her this weekend, because I don't get to see her all that often!

2. Nephew Birthday
We're celebrating this sweet little guy's First birthday at his party tomorrow, I can't wait!

3. Target Bargain!
While at Target recently "picking up a few things",which of course translates into $80+ spent, I found this cute little affordable top that is perfect for work, and cute enough to wear out on the weekends...score!
Nerd Alert! I treated myself to the Adobe Creative Suite 6 this past Christmas [yes, then I was broke]. Although I minored in Technology, Arts & Media and can find my way around in Photoshop and InDesign pretty well, I've recently been doing some tutorials on, it's great and really useful. I love learning new things!
5. Moments
In the age of Instagram, we are constantly trying to get the "best, cutest, craftiest" insta.  I am guilty of this. Sometimes I'm more concerned with getting a photo of the "totally cool can't miss moment" that I miss being in that moment and embracing the time. It's tough, because I absolutely love looking back at old photographs and love the memories sparked, and I sometimes do feel bummed out if I forgot to take a pic...but in reality means I was too busy enjoying myself and other's company that I didn't think of it. I guess it's just finding a balance! Anyone else struggle with this?! Haha life's little problems :)

Enjoy your weekend :)


  1. definitely share your problem of trying to capture moments thru instagram versus enjoying them. I am trying to get better!

  2. I love #5 I need to remember that sometimes!

  3. Such a great list! I love when you find great Target deals! I found your blog through the link up, so cute!

  4. Completely agree that sometimes you just need to put down the camera and let it all soak in!

  5. Just found your blog through the 5 on Friday link-up! Girl, I don't think I've ever made it out of Target under $100! That place IS my weakness! Happy Weekend!

  6. I'm going to check out - thanks for sharing!!

    The Targets in Canada aren't as good as yours so I can never find cute finds..maybe that's a good thing!?

  7. I know exactly what you mean about trying to capture the moment. Especially for my blog. I'm always pulling out my iPhone camera and taking pics and then get upset if something exciting happened and I didn't capture it. It's pretty silly and I'm trying to enjoy the moment more rather than worrying about capturing it!

  8. I love Target...too bad our closest one is an HOUR away! Love your blog!
