5 on Friday

Happy Friday! I'm linking up today for my favorite post of the week!

5. We have been busy lately, running around like crazy chickens. We are getting ready to refinance the house and we are only days away from our appraisal, which means I have been and will continue to be cleaning like a maniac for the next few days. We have a few projects to take care of this weekend and I'm really just looking forward to being done with it all. This whole process has turned my husband into one holy stresscase and I'm ready for him to be able to relax. The refinance also means that by the end of September, I will officially be a homeowner! Nick bought the house when we first started dating, and while the house is ours, really up until now it's been his.

4. I made an appointment with my OB/GYN this last week to talk about baby making. It really was more of a counseling session than anything else. Turns out I completely  misunderstood her the first time we spoke. She said to expect it would take 6 months to get knocked up. I turned that into, by 6 months I would for sure be a big pregnant lady. She clarified that it was unlikely that we would be pregnant before 6 months and that most couples {93%} are pregnant by month 9. Here's to hoping we are the 93%. I was not feeling in a great place when I wrote this post and I feel so much better now after talking to her again. I'm ready to just relax and enjoy this time. Baby M will come eventually.

3. A couple weekends ago I made a trip to Sacramento to meet with my sweet friend Jeanette to go wedding dress shopping. She is going to be the most beautiful bride and I cannot wait for her wedding. Have I mentioned that they are getting married at the zoo? The photo ops are going to be amazing.  We may or may not have downed two bottles of champagne while we were watching her try them on. As Maid {Matron?} of Honor I have started planning her SF bach bash and I am so excited. She looked gorg in every single dress she tried on, but didn't find the one.

2. We are almost one month away from our first anniversary! This seems to be a running theme around here, but holy jeez this year has gone by so quickly. We will be spending the weekend of our anniversary in Napa and I'm so excited. We don't really have any set plans yet but I'm just looking forward to some good food and a relaxing weekend with my sweet husband. Also, trying to decide on a good gift for the mister. The 1st anniversary gift is paper... so I'd like to stick with that. What to do... what to do...

1. We are officially two short weeks away from the {usually} bi-annual family Maui vacation. Our wedding threw the schedule off last summer but come August 30th, we will be on a flight to one of my favorite places ever. I'm hoping to check off at least one of my 30 by 30 items and finally tan my way too white for this time of year self. I need to load up my Kindle with all kinds of good books to read for the week. Work is kicking my hiney lately and I am soo looking forward to forgetting everything for the week. I've been counting down on Instagram with the photos below for way too many months.

Seriously TGIF is all I have to say. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!


  1. I'll be celebrating my paper anniversary in October - I've found a few cute ideas on Etsy & Pinterest, plus I was thinking of having our wedding invitation framed. I feel like I need to figure something out soon so I have time to execute the plan!

    1. I love that idea. I might just have to do it anyway, gift or no gift. Thanks & congrats on your first year!
      Also, I just peeked at your blog and I'm pretty sure that we might be the same person. #1 reason why I love these link ups is finding new fun blogs to follow. Thanks for stopping by!
