Five on Friday!

Happy Friday everyone! Man, am I glad it’s the weekend and I bet you are, too! Today I am linking up with Carolina Charm to give you my favorite things for this week.

One. Our new fire-pit. Last Saturday my awesome husband put this fire-pit together in our backyard and it came out way better than we even expected. We have already used it a couple times and I know we will get so much use out of it this spring / summer and even into the fall. Way to go, hubby!

Two.  A very special grandmother’s birthday. Today is my hubby’s grandmother’s birthday! She is such a special person in both of our lives and I can’t tell you how blessed I am to call her family. Tomorrow we plan to take her to brunch and spend the day with her to celebrate.

Three. Paint, paint, paint. We have selected a new painter for our living room (yay!). He came to our house on Monday to take a look at our space and give us a quote. We were very impressed and appreciated the fact that he was willing to work with us on our budget. Plus, he’s been a Raleigh business owner for over 30 years so we feel good about that, too! So now, the hard part…picking paint colors!

Four. Lonerider Brewery. I guess my husband and I have been living under a rock for the past 2.5 years because we just discovered this place and it’s conveniently less than 10 minutes from our house. It’s a perfect hangout for a sunny afternoon happy hour (Thirsty Thursday, anyone?). If you’re in Raleigh and looking for a chill and relaxed place to hangout (indoors or outdoors), I would recommend it!


Five. Starbucks Hazelnut Frappuccino. When I was in college I was a barista at a local coffee shop – so I like to think that I know a little bit about coffee (ha!). I recently stumbled into Starbucks for an afternoon pick-me-up and tried their Hazelnut Frappuccino (the light version) and added one pump of chocolate. It.was.divine. Nutella in liquid form. If you like hazelnut and chocolate, I highly suggest you try it. You’re welcome.


Have a great weekend!
