high five for friday.

and just like that is was friday again...

the weekend is here and once again we are hanging around durham. what a good feeling. you know who else is hanging around durham this weekend? uva athletics. both the baseball and women's lax teams are coming to town. which means i get to get my wahoowa on for three days in a row. i was starting to forget what i look like in orange. no longer.

but before i get ahead of myself and dive into the weekend, i will share my top 5 things from this week. i do this every friday with lauren. you can join us if you'd like. just click the button below. ok, here goes:


well, i submitted my masters thesis. so there's that...

i finished what might be my last semester of class ever. so there's that too...
(although i'm feeling mixed emotions about this.)

i had two girl nights in a row last weekend. quite a big deal for a married girl. or, at least for this married girl. saturday i attended my first ever wine and art party. i made a painting of some trees. then my sister pretended not to know what they were. at least i'm telling myself she was pretending. i thought they were pretty obviously trees. you can check out this post and tell me what you think. sunday, i met up with some other blogger-types at this great place in raleigh and we chatted, swapped experiences, and munched on yummy things. in fact lauren, the one i'm linking up with at this very moment, was one of the hosts. thanks lauren, kate, and carrie for the fun night!

i found this beauty of a bracelet and sent a request to the hubs that he surprise me with it as my graduation gift. this is the first time i've ever done this. we'll see what happens...

which color do you like the best out of these three? they are my favorites. i think! click here to see the rest of the colors. and by the way, they are uni-sex. would your man wear one?

my hometown was rated the number five "best small town in america" by the smithsonian magazine. 
their tag line was,
"take numerous art galleries. add sailboats and local wines. stir. enjoy."

little old gig harbor is finally getting the love it deserves. please, go read about why they picked it and give a little sigh for how darling of a place it is. can you see how ad and i could have fallen in love here? reading this article made me miss home. especially all the bits about sailboats. i need me some time on the water in a bad way. just wish we had a trip to the gig on our calendar!

here is one of my favorite pictures of home (source):

ok, well that's all i've got for this week. what were five good things about your week? i'd love to hear!


  1. Website for the bracelets = way cool.

    I personally like the green. I guess I'll know if the gift request works by checking out the status of your wrist. In a non-creepy way, of course.

    Happy Friday!

  2. love those bracelets! the green in my favorite!

  3. I can't tell you how wonderful your precious Gig Harbor is in all this cold and rain. The definition of spring never reached this lovely place. No sailboats on the water today. The local wine is what gets us through April.

  4. Green! Congrats on your submission and last class! I feel pangs sometimes that make me consider going for a doctorate but then the money scares me out of it.

    1. Thanks! And yes, more school vs. more debt. It's hard to decide. I fear this decision is in my future.

  5. Go green! It's really cute. Also, those pics of your hometown are amazing.

    Hope you'll hop over and check out my High Five list too!

  6. Congrats on submitting your thesis! Five rando things from my week...
    1. I was accepted into a graduate program. SO excited!
    2. Sun allllll week = pool time.
    3. Easter candy was 40% off. Score.
    4. Friday night date with my husband.
    5. TAX REFUND!

    Hope you have a great weekend! :)

  7. Woo, on the master thesis. :) Also, those bracelets are so cute.
