I’ve been drinking champagne every night and we’re not even celebrating anything! (life is good)

Friday, Friday, Friday! (Oh, you already knew what day it was? Sorry for the repetition!)

I hope everyone is ready for a fun-filled long weekend! The Husband and I packed our week full of so much fun that we’re mainly using this weekend to relax. 

My favorite parts of this week included my women’s Bible study, eating Chinese food with my love, going painting and drinking wine with girlfriends, and eating dinner with best friends. 

Life has been good to us this week, for sure.

Onto Friday favorites!


4 Favorite Things:

  • Girls’ night out when wine and painting are involved
  • Chinese food
  • Long weekends
  • Best friends (even those that live on the other side of the world!

4 Confessions:

  • I drank more this week than I usually do. But I couldn’t help it! Wednesday night was girls’ night (we went painting) and Thursday night was dinner party night and both of those occasions require more white wine/champagne than I normally drink on weeknights.
  • It’s official, I’m addicted to Candy Crush.
  • I cried while watching the Ellen show (it was a rerun) the other day. She was giving money to a school for under privileged children and I just thought it was so sweet I immediately started crying… and then I realized I was happy crying during the Ellen show and felt like SUCH a girl.
  • I still don’t miss working, and being a stay-at-home-wife is much more fun now that I’ve taken a break from job searching.

Featured Blog:

Happily Ever Parker

I’m so pleased to introduce you all to (a fellow newlywed) Laura from Happily Ever Parker! I must admit, I’m always amazed at how much I have in common with other bloggers, and Laura is no exception! It turns out we both love cheese and champagne (but, DUH, who doesn’t?!) and are allergic to mosquitoes. We also got married about a month apart from each other last year! Although, Laura’s wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty (it’s clear why – her pictures are gorgeous!) and for that I am extremely jealous.

Laura has a freakin’ huge heart, especially when it comes to her dog Finnley, who she adopted from a shelter. I love love love this. Well, I thought our dogs may have more in common and could maybe be long distance BFFs, but it turns out Finnley is way too cool for Ozzie and was even in People Magazine(Sidenote: I really need to make Oz start earning his keep around here.)

When she’s not rescuing animals, being gorgeous, getting married, or blogging, Laura is doing projects around the house and making the rest of us look bad by comparison. (Sorry if that sounded bitter, just a bit envious of talent over here!) But seriously, isn’t this dresser makeover gorgeous?!

Anyway, you should probably just head on over and learn more about Laura for yourself (and remember to say hello!)

(Feel free to stalk her – as I do – via Bloglovin’, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter)


Cheers to the long weekend!
