Friday 5 Favorites

Happy Friday! You made it through another week, so give yourself a pat on the back, or a stiff drink (or both)!
This was the first work week since Winter Break that we didn't have any delays or closings, which was actually nice since I got to catch up on work instead of constantly being behind. That doesn't mean I'm not ready for the weekend, because I am! But first, let's talk about some of my faves from the week!

{1}-The house projects continue...
Upstairs     and               downstairs (with painted walls)
MG and I spent part of the weekend and then most of the day on Monday painting trim in the upstairs hallway as well as the doors from the main hallway. We also went out and bought doorknobs and hinges for all the doors and are making our way through updating everything. We still have the walls to paint upstairs, and several more doors to do (who knew a house had SO MANY doors??) but it's already looking SO good, and so much better and fresher!

{2}-The Most Comfy Leggings Ever
{via}
I recently bought a pair of fleece-lined leggings on a site called Sassy Steals. They arrived and let me tell you, they're the most comfortable pair of leggings ever and they are SO warm!  They also have a nice finish on the outside which you can totally wear as a dressier pair of leggings (is there such a thing? Yes!) I think the deal ended for them the other day, but in case they come back, go on over and get you a pair. They're only $6.99!!

{3}-The Good Wife
MG and I have been in the market for a new show to watch together since several of our shows are either on hiatus, or we've already whipped through. Our friends had told us about the show The Good Wife, which I'd heard of, but never really sounded appealing to me even though I had no idea what it was about (it's a legal/political drama in case you didn't know, because I didn't). But, our friends said it was good, so on Wednesday night we watched the first episode. And then the second. And last night we watched the next 4. It's excellent! Highly recommend it if you haven't seen it!

{4}- Downton Abbey spoof
If you haven't seen it yet, apparently the cast of Downton Abbey did a spoof of themselves for a fundraiser called Text Santa. It is so funny and creative--if you're a Downton Abbey fan you'll love it. Here's part one, and a link for part two


{5} Anniversary Trip
{via}
I already shared with you on Monday that MG and I booked our anniversary trip to Punta Cana for the end of March this weekend, and I'd be lying if I told you I didn't spend at least 5 minutes everyday scrolling through pictures of the resort,  day dreaming about being there now. And it's hard to believe that in 2 1/2 months, we'll have been married an entire year. Time really does fly when you're having fun! ;)
P.S. I promise not to talk about this non-stop until the end of March 

And here are a couple of funnies to get you rolling into the weekend....
{via} I wish this was my plan, instead of painting doors haha

I hope that you're unstoppable this weekend, too, just like T-rex! :)
Catch ya on Monday, lovies!

  2. Painting trim is literally my nemesis. I did one room in our house and after a full days work, I still finds spots I missed. Will you come do mine next!? haha Michael and I booked our trip to Punta Cana but we aren't going until June!! You will have to let me know how it goes and what you loved about it.

  3. Ohhh that picture from Punta Cana makes me want to book a trip there myself! Hope you have a great weekend :)

  4. i think the Good Wife will be my next series. I just watched Being Mary Jane but only after I got into it - i realized there were only 8 episodes (whomp whomp). Downton Abby is kinda boring this season so far. I hope it spices up soon or I'm going to have to quit on it!

  5. Those leggings sound sooooo cozy, and that price is such a steal! I'm heading to Florida in a few weeks for vacation (SO excited) but have been looking at Punta Cana for a late spring trip...that picture makes me even more convinced I should just book it!

  6. Haha I love the T-Rex. This is the 1st Friday I'll actually be able to enjoy a stiff drink for happy hour since we've been back from break so I am ready! T-minus 8 hours. Happy Friday!

  7. Fleece lined leggings are my jam! I picked some up at Walmart on a recommendation from another blogger, and can't believe how comfy they are. The only thing is, they are a bit more sheer than I'd like - not see through or anything, but I am always hyper aware, and want my leggings to be thick and totally opaque - so I might have to keep an eye out for this Sassy Steals pair you mentioned!

  8. I bought a pair of fleece leggings on Cyber Monday and I absolutely love them still. Even though I can pretty much only wear them around the house because those little fuzzies get stuck to the outside. Oh well! I got married in March too and I was just thinking about that the other day about how I'll be married for a year in just a short time! Have a great weekend, love!

  12. I've heard really good things about The Good Wife. If you're looking for another show, Adam and I are watching The Wire and it is awesome.

  13. I'm all over that quote about only moving just enough so that people don't think I'm dead. After an insane weekend last weekend and a crazy one next, I need this weekend! And I'm so jealous about Punta Cana - looks so fun!

  19. Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!! That sounds like an amazing trip! My aunt and uncle go there a lot of absolutely love it! They are huge travelers and that is always their repeat place. I wore leggings out on New Year's and I was like when did leggings become dressing and going out pants for me? Oh well....I was the most comfortable let me tell you ;-) I hope you have some rest in between the painting this weekend! xoxoxo

  20. We are looking at going to Punta Cana too. Just haven't been able to decide between going there or to St. Thomas. I figure it's a win either way. ;)
