This post contains affiliate links.

TGIF!!! Della at Della Devoted, Katie at Cup of Tea, and myself want to welcome you to the High Five for Friday link-up and the weekend. We made it! High Five for Friday is where we come together to share five highlights from the past week each Friday.


First things first–how do you like our new logo?  H54F got a little makeover this week:)  We will hopefully have new H54F buttons next week for those of you who use our button on your blog, and we will be returning with our featured blogger series.

And do you notice a fourth name on the logo??? Please join us in welcoming our new host, Becky from byBMG!!!  Becky and I actually became friends through the linkup before I started co-hosting it, so she’s been around since the beginning. Becky is a fashion and lifestyle blogger who includes lots of easy DIY posts.  She teaches full-time and is a mom to three sweet boys. She also sells LipSense (and y’all know I love it!).

Now, let’s recap this week’s highlights:

1. Did you see this announcement about next weekend? The Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass are right outside of Louisville, and a shopping destination for central Kentucky. When I’m looking for great deals on my favorite brands, like J. Crew, Kate Spade, and Gap, I hit up these outlets.  So I’m super excited that Nicole from What Nicole Wore and I will be hosting an event at the Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass on April 15. Get all the details below or click here! You can also checkout the Facebook event page here.

2. Chauncey and I had a date night last Saturday night! We went to Pig and a Poke, which is one of my favorite restaurants back home. Sadly, we didn’t have the best experience, but at least we had a date night!haha

3. I found my missing real pearl earring that Chauncey got me for our anniversary last year. It was MIA. I couldn’t find it anywhere! To say I was freaking out was an understatement, but I methodically cleaned around my desk and I found it! I felt something roll and bounce off my toe–I’m pretty sure it was that earring because I found in a little jewelry dish I had sat in the floor under my desk that I had already checked three times!

4. If you don’t have Unicorn Fur in your life, you NEED it! It’s the perfect lipstick for spring! I’m wearing it in this post.

5. Yesterday was a rainy day, but Chauncey brought home Mellow Mushroom for dinner and it made everything better!  I love a good warm meal on a rainy day!

ICYMI, here’s this week’s highlights:

High Five for Friday 01.20.17: Friends + Good Mail Days

This post contains affiliate links.

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

This week’s featured blogger is Coletta from Coletta’s Kitchen Sink, a lifestyle blog.  Coletta is a stay-at-home mom who is a Steelers fan (LET’S GO STEELERS!!!).  Catch her latest book review here.  I also love her quick bible verse studies. You can also follow along on her weight loss journey.

Now let’s recap this week’s highlights:


1. It was a good mail week!!! Rebecca Minkoff was having an amazing sale, and I snagged two pairs of these cute flats that come in four designs. Oh, and what about this Purple Peridot necklace?!

2. On Saturday, I met my friend Jacque at a little coffee shop and we spent a good hour just catching up and chatting. I haven’t seen her in forever, so it was awesome!!!

3. Kane’s patching is going well!  He worked up to two hours per night in three days. He even patched when we went on a Target adventure (which was a good distraction). As a reward, Kane picked out a new dinosaur.  In case you’re wondering, Kane will tell you that the newest addition is a taborsaurus that’s a meat eater and it eats other dinosaurs.haha

4. My friend Melissa and I had lunch at Chuy’s on Sunday.  She’s getting married, and there was definitely some wedding talk:)  Good food and good conversation with good company!

5. I’ve been working and planning this week on some big changes coming to the blog. I have made the decision to migrate from Blogger to WordPress.  Along with that will be a site redesign and logo redesign.  It makes me sad to leave Blogger, because I love the platform, but I’ve taken design things as far as I can go.  These changes won’t be happening overnight, but I’m excited to see them come about now that I’ve made my peace with the switch.
