Five on Friday

Happy Friday!  Linking up for Five on Friday with Darci, Christina, Liz, and Natasha.


01. Exterior Paint Colors – We are mulling over exterior paint colors and are 99% sure we’re going with these two colors.  The Clarksville Gray looks much lighter up than their sample.

Benjamin Moore Clarksville Gray for the brick

Benjamin Moore Texas Leather for the trim

02.  Head shots – My talented friend, Ashley, took a couple of head shots for me the other night.  So strange to be on the other side of the camera.

03.  Scentsy Halloween Warmer – My hubby bought me this cute Halloween warmer.  I love Scentsy products but their warmers haven’t always gone hand in hand with my home decor style.  So, he purchased a Scentsy silhouette warmer that has interchangeable sleeves.  I’m currently burning it with my fall favorite, pumpkin roll.

04.  Creating White Space – My friend, Erin, of the Blue Eyed Bride is doing a 31 day series of Creating White Space.  It is a must read!  So needed in my life.  Are you reading any other 31 Day series that I must check out?

05.  Spinach and Artichoke Bacon Chicken Spaghetti Squash  – We tried this delicious dish this week.  If you are a fan of spaghetti squash it’s a must try.

Have a great weekend!

  • darci - Friend, seriously – you are just gorgeous! What amazing photos!! Isn’t it weird to be photographed though… as in just YOU sans kiddos and hubby? I had some taken awhile back and honestly, I felt so very strange. As in, “where do I put my hands”, “are you sure I shouldn’t hold Jackson to cover up my crazy big thighs”…. etc, etc. HA!!! But you totally rocked it!

    I’m definitely going to have to try that recipe – what I would give if my husband ate veggies. Ugh!

    And I’m loving Erin’s series as well…. I think we could all use some more white space!!

    Happy weekend ahead!

  • Mariel - Hello gorgeous! What a talented photographer! That navy dress is to die for.

    Our house is gray painted brick and I am obsessed. We have black shutters and a deep red door, and I just LOVE how it looks.
