High Five for Friday 06.17.16: Beach Vacation + Anniversary

TGIF, H54F-ers!!! Della at Della Devoted, Katie at Cup of Tea, and myself want to welcome you to the link-up and the weekend. We made it!

Today’s featured blogger is Kate from The Neat Nook, a lifestyle blog.  Kate is a part-time creative consultant and mom.  She has some awesome camping hacks, and I love her post on Flag Day etiquette–bookmarking both!

I just got back from vacation late last night, so I’m exhausted! It’s been an awesome week, so let’s recap the highlights:
1. Kane’s birthday party was back home on Saturday.  He went non-stop, and LOVED his new dinosaur bicycle!

2. Chauncey and I left for vacation the next morning.  We stayed at Tides Folly Beach just outside of Charleston.  I loved that they were proudly flying the flag, showing unity with Orlando.  

3. Chauncey and I celebrated our 7th anniversary on Monday! We spent the day at the beach and then headed to downtown Charleston that evening.  We grabbed dinner at Poogan’s Porch and then went to the Bar at Husk afterwards for Chauncey to have some bourbon.  Chauncey is always so thoughtful with his gifts–he got me my very first pair of REAL pearl earrings, to match the pearl ring I got in Charleston last year. I got him $100 of “Bourbon Bucks” (a $100 Visa giftcard), since he was search for some rare bourbons while we were there.  Also, today is my parents’ anniversary, so happy anniversary to my mom and dad!

4, We love the history of Charleston, so several nights were spent out exploring.  I also did some shopping on King’s Street and came away with the You Gotta Regatta pop-up print release from Lilly!

5. We left the beach and headed home yesterday. I always wear a Kentucky shirt on the way home and snap a pic on the beach before I leave. While we loved vacay, it was so nice to have Kane’s arms around my neck last night!

High Five for Friday 03.25.16: Pink Chair + Yummy Restaurants

TGIF, H54F-ers!!! Della at Della Devoted, Katie at Cup of Tea, and myself want to welcome you to the link-up and the weekend.  We made it! And happy Good Friday!  I hope that everyone has a great weekend and a wonderful Easter!!!

This week’s featured blogger is Stephanie from Stephanie Spring, a beauty, food, and lifestyle blog. I love her recent soundtrack to life post (lots of good throwbacks) and her energy bites look yummy. She’s also participating in a cool 30 day prayer challenge.

Now let’s recap this week’s highlights:

1. My pink chair came in on Friday!  Everyone needs a pink chair in their living room, right?!

2. On Saturday, Kane and I headed to Richmond.  We picked up pizza and french fries from Gillum’s Sports Lounge and then headed to my friend’s house to meet her new baby.  She has a little girl who is Kane’s age so they got in a lot of play time while my friend and I caught up.

3. My mom was off work this week, so she and my mother-in-law came to Lex on Sunday.  We took them to one of our favorite restaurants in town, Saul Good.  Then they took Kane back to eastern Kentucky with them for the week. We’ve missed our little guy so much and look forward to seeing him this weekend!

4. Since Kane was in eastern Kentucky, Chauncey and I headed out for a date night on Wednesday.  I wanted a burger and Chauncey wanted bourbon, so we hit up JDI downtown.  Afterwards, we stopped by Crank and Boom for an ice cream. Chauncey got Bourbon & Honey, and I got Salted Caramel.  Needless to say, it was a delicious night!


5. I got in my very 1st shipment of Elf products this week. There were 8 products in it, and I’ve been trying them out.  When you’re a blogger, trying out new products is like conducting a scientific experience.  Findings will be on the blog in the next couple of weeks.haha

ICYMI, here’s this week’s posts:

1. $10 at Target: Either/or Edition
(Because who can spend just $10 at Target?  So I did it 2x.)
2. When Your Child Hates the Easter Bunny
(My advice for an alternative–some disastrous and adorable Easter pics of Kane)
