Five Friday Faves

Happy Friday, loves! It's been a beautiful week weather-wise around here, and even tho the week had some ups and downs with work, I'm glad the weekend is here to enjoy!
But, before the weekend, let's get to some faves from this week!
{1} New Furniture
Our new furniture arrived earlier this week for the basement. I don't know why it's so hard to photograph (it looks like such a tiny area), but it fills the big space nicely in person, and both the chair and the couch are SO comfy (especially with the power recliner in the couch!). We obviously have a little bit of decorating to do yet, but we're off to a good start. It is definitely ready to have the tv moved downstairs and become a nice entertainment space!

Because, s'mores.
Yes please, and #getinmybelly

{3}-New show to watch
My friend who had recommended Bloodline to us also told us that we should watch Orphan Black. It's already in it's 3rd season I believe, but I'd never heard of it before. It's a crazy story, but the main actress is amazing and plays several characters throughout as the storyline unfolds more.
The IMDB synopsis is short and sweet: 
"A streetwise hustler is pulled into a compelling conspiracy after witnessing the suicide of a girl who looks just like her."
So far, we are really liking it.  Definitely one to check out if you're looking for a new show while others are on hiatus!

{4} Happy Hour
I was able to hang out with my good friend Bree yesterday for a little happy hour action at one of my favorite bar/restaurants in Old Town. The weather was super warm, and the drinks were tasty. Not to mention the overflowing plate of amazing nacho goodness that we had too! It was nice to hang just the two of us, while catching up and unwinding from the end of the year craziness happening all around us at work. And, those were the best dirty martinis I've had in a looooooong time!
I see many more girls nights in our future over the summer :)

{5} Funnies this Week
