High Five for Friday

Is anyone else COMPLETELY exhausted after this week???  

I'm ready for a weekend and it's going to be a busy one! 

Before we get to the weekend though, I'm linking up with Lauren From My Grey Desk Blog.  

It's High Five for Friday, folks! 

My absolute favorite thing to do during the week is... TURN OFF MY ALARM!! 

 Yah for Independence Day!! Loving that extra day and a half of vacation.   

 An extra day of vacation means we got to spend an extra day with our Patriotic Love Bug.  
That bow lasted exactly .7 seconds...about .5 seconds longer than I thought. 

We made a very grown up purchase this week.  Luggage.  Maybe next week we'll go to Sizzler for the early bird special and put our teeth in glasses with fizzy little tabs. 

Books will be read, the pool will be visited and there will be TONS of cuddles. 

There were ups and downs this week, like every week, but spending the evening on the couch next to this guy makes the worst day bearable.  

Finally, I want to thank all of you who LIKED, TWEETED or COMMENTED on my entry in's Next Big Bridal Blogger contest.  Alas, I did not win but it was such a fun experience and truly, being a finalist was REALLY, REALLY awesome!  

Congrats to the winner Michele Schwartz of the blog The Modern Jewish Wedding! Go check out her site and Onewed to find some really lovely inspiration for your big day!
