Happy Friday!
This week has only been a 2-day work week but somehow feels so much longer.
Thanks for everyone's well-wishes, I am feeling much better and actually ate dinner last night, so that's a good start. Here are my high five from the week!

1) I was disappointed that Chris and I didn't get any pictures together since I was sickly throughout the holiday time. Then I remembered we took a couple pictures over the the Christmas tree... so these will suffice as our holiday pictures this year!
We were at Chris' brother's and sister-in-law's for lunch on Saturday, and their adorable cat ended up photo-bombing. Love it.

what a goof. He'll hate me for posting this.
Chris' brother can cut off Champagne corks with a knife. They end up like this. Pretty freakin amazing.

2) B.S. (Before sickness, it's my new acronym to describe my past week), Chris got me a manicure for my birthday! I haven't gotten my nails done in.... let's just say it's been a while. I went all out in holiday red and love it!

OPI Gel Big Apple Red
 3) I feel like I'm bragging about my boyfriend, but he got me one of the best gifts ever. An ICE CREAM MAKER ATTACHMENT for my Kitchen Aid!!! I can't contain my excitement. Currently I have 32 cups of vanilla ice cream base in my fridge waiting until tomorrow so it can be churned into glorious ice cream (I'm making Butterfinger! Then maybe chocolate chip, cookies n cream, and Reese's! Maybe I'm getting ahead of myself.)
In Love.
4) Nashville Soundtrack~ I've recently become obsessed with this show and LOVE all the music. When I spotted this soundtrack at Target the other day, I knew I had to have it. *Somehow* Chris' mom found out and gave it to me for Christmas! Lovelovelove.
It's hard to pick a favorite song, but if you haven't heard Lennon and Maisy, you NEED to watch this video. Two sisters, age 13 and 8 were cast for the show as the main character's daughters. They perform this amazing version of "Telescope" on the show...

Gives me goosebumps! These girls are amazing.

5) Last but not least, I just found out a Nordstrom Rack is opening right down the street from my house! My bank account just cried in anguish, but I was jumping up and down when I found out. We have a couple Racks in the area, but both are at least a 40 minute drive. With every other store in the world imaginable nearby, I can't believe we don't have one yet but am so glad it's coming. And it's going to be right next to Target. Double whammy.

I hope everyone had a great week, and an easy one if you had to go back to work. If you didn't have to work, I'm extremely jealous of you. I was all set up to take this week as a week of vacation then had to switch jobs all of a sudden! Life is funny like that.

Linking up with Lauren!


  1. That is awesome that you got the ice cream maker attachment!!! I want one! I love the nail color too, it's so pretty (and the B.S. before sickness reference made me laugh)!

  2. I got the ice cream attachment too!!! Eeek! I put mine in the freezer Christmas night, so it's more than frozen enough for me to make ice cream tomorrow! Let me know if you find any super yummy recipes! I'm planning to start with vanilla bean, cookies 'n cream and probably some sort of peanut butter concoction.

  3. yes, lennon and maisy are amazing! my sister happens to be friends with them, i got to meet lennon once, and they are just so sweet!
    and i love that second picture, haha. there are so many pictures in our repertoire of my husband doing things like that! haha. must be in the guy manual.

  4. I love Lennon and Maisy, you have to check out their cover of Robyn's Call Your Girlfriend. It's spectacular! xo, Maria

  5. We have the same name!! You have a cute blog! (:Sounds like you had a great Christmas too!! Found you from H54F! Have a great weekend! You can find me here:

  6. Ummm....totally jelly of the fact that you have a KitchenAid at all. I dream. Lots. :) PS....since you hardly post pics of Chris, I totally had a way different picture of what he would look like in my head. Haha. I didn't even realize until now. Funny how we make up peoples faces. Xoxo

  7. My husband got me the same ice cream attachment back in August. I love it!
    Also, I was sickly over the last week too so I, also, did not get many pictures at all. Unfortunate.
    Stopping by from today's link-up!


  8. I didn't realize the two girls in Nashville were actually sisters in real life! That's so neat! I'm obsessed with the show. The music is definitely good stuff!

    I can't wait to hear about how the ice cream attachment works and how it ends up tasting. Future blog post I hope? :)

  9. sorry you were sick!! i love your pretty nails!

  10. I love that duet too! I think when I watched the episode I rewound and watched it at least 3 times. And your manicure looks amazing! I really want gel nails...but bleh, I guess we have to eat. ;)
