High Five for Friday! ~ May 25, 2012

Happy Friday! Linking up with Lauren for High Five for Friday :)

There are so many great things about this week and upcoming weekend.

{1} This should count for all 5. My (not so) little brother, Ben, is graduating college today! He has worked so hard and I am so proud of him. He is moving to California next month to start a new adventure, one that he's always dreamed of. I'm going to miss him so much but look forward to visiting him in sunny LA :) In the spirit of his upcoming move, here's a picture of us in CA a couple years ago (excuse my terrible sunglasses... I thought they were cool)

I am so grateful for him and can't believe he'll be 2000 miles away soon. Wahhhh!
Also, Ben and Zach (other brother) are staying over at my place tonight. They specially requested I make the french toast bake for breakfast tomorrow. This is probably the only reason they wanted to come over :) I'm excited! 

{2} My new throw pillows and tv stand in living room! This is what I did on my day off. Chris built the tv stand over the weekend. Poor Chris had the worst time putting it together, thanks to Ikea's horrible directions and weird parts. This will definitely be our last Ikea furniture purchase. :(

{3} My Birchbox FINALLY arrived! Of course I've been having fun sampling all the goodies.

{4} 4 Day weekend! Memorial day weekend = warm weather, swimming, and grilling out. Can't wait!

{5} I went through about 10 boxes of old stuff from my childhood room. The boxes have been sitting in my garage for the past month and needed to go. I went to Target and bought 4 big Rubbermaid containers, then put some music on and just went through everything. I filled 3 of the containers and threw a lot out.. a lot of junk! I found a couple treasures, though:

Can you believe the price of that Disneyland ticket in 1994!?

This is a note Ben wrote to me... he must have been about 9? Haha

I hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend :)


  1. Aww the Ben note is so cute! He deserves some french toast bake for that, and so do you for still having it all these years! And a 1994 Disney ticket?! Impressive

  2. The note from Ben just melted my heart. :-)
