Five on Friday 8/15

Hello from the officially unemployed!  While it was sad to leave last night (with a tear or two shed), I must say that it feels pretty good to not have any work in sight :)  No more alarm clocks, no more work clothes, no more night/weekend shifts... now my summer fun can really begin!

Weekend Plans
One of my favorite weekends in Chicago is upon us -- the annual Air & Water Show.  On Saturday and Sunday, everyone camps out on the beach while the Blue Angels, Golden Knights Parachute Team, Air Force Raptors and the Coast Guard put on an amazing show over Lake Michigan.  It's so much fun and we look forward to it each year.  We also have dinner plans tonight with friends and church on Sunday so it's going to be a big weekend!



Birthday Cake M&M's
I've been on an M&M kick lately and these are amazing... not that that's a big surprise!


J Crew Vest
It's totally acceptable to buy yourself an "all done working" present, right?  I've been eyeing this baby pretty much since last winter when it sold out.  I'm so happy it has been brought back and it WILL be mine this year :)


Photobook
Nick's first anniversary present finally came in, thank the Lord!  I made him a Shutterfly photobook filled with pictures of us from the last year, our first year of marriage.  It was a big hit... you can never go wrong with a photobook, they're just so special.


Peach Green Tea Lemonade
As much as I'm looking forward to fall and all things pumpkin, I do not want to say goodbye to PGTL's!  I'm officially hooked and have had a minimum of 3 per week.  Pure deliciousness.


That's about it... what do you all have planned for the weekend?  See you all back here next week! :)
Linking up with KarliLaurenJennie and Rebecca

  11. Ohh I saw those birthday cake M&Ms the other day and I wanted to get them but I was worried they'd be weird. That vest is so gorgeous but I feel like someone is going to make a knock off version soon! And peach green tea... I refuse to say bye to it any time soon! Happy Friday!

  12. Ahh the Air and Water Show!! I have off tomorrow but I won't be going downtown. Heard them practicing when I was at work yesterday though. Pretty cool. I drink those green tea lemonades a lot. They are pretty good. :-) Love M&M's, I'll look for those. That Shutterfly book is so great! I love the gold glitter band. My dad makes books on their for people a lot. That vest is really cute too, I just don't want to think about wearing that stuff yet!! Have a fab weekend! :-)

  13. Sounds like such a fun weekend, that air show would be so cool to see with the Chicago skyline in the background! I have that herringbone vest and its my most favorite article of Fall/winter clothing, I swear it goes with everything! Good purchase :)

  14. Um, that vest also will be mine. I'm determined! I've had my eye on it for quite some time, too. Your anniversary gift to Nick looks sooooo cute - what a cute design you chose for the cover! You really never can go wrong with photo books. Have a great weekend, lady!

  16. Birthday Cake M+Ms, what the what?! I need these! That vest is amazing I have had my eye on it as well, and that book is too perfect!

  17. i am in love with the anniversary present, so cute. I do yearbook photobooks for each year, and we have a huge photo album from our wedding, otherwise I totally would have done a photobook for our anniversary too.
    that vest is so pretty, why is it everywhere today? i cannot spend $100 a vest, no sirree. plus i have a black one from Gap but it's not as pretty.

  18. Wait... BIRTHDAY CAKE M&Ms?! We're going on a little road trip this weekend and I think I need some for the road. M&Ms are basically the best.
    That air show sounds like SO much fun! Enjoy it!
    Photo books are so so special. I need to get around to making one from our wedding, but weeding through 950 pictures is soooo daunting. Oh well. It has got to be done, right?

    Have a great weekend!

  19. That best is back?! I need to buy it today!!! I too was swooning over it all last year! Enjoy your stay-at-home-wife status! I was that for about 10 months prior to Liam's arrival when I got to change that wife to mom and it was glorious!

  20. Okay I'm obsessed with all 5 today!! Yay for the Blue Angels and of course the Jcrew vest. I'm definitely going to have to try that Starbucks tea and how have I missed the bday cake M&Ms?? It looks like you did an incredible job with the photo book!! Hubby knows it was worth the wait!!

  29. What a fun weekend you have planned! We have an air show out here next month that we're really excited about!

    I want to buy that vest soooo badly, but that price tag makes me cringe!! I keep going back and forth on whether to buy it or not. But, it's the perfect "done working" present for you :)

    Have a great weekend girl!

  37. I do a photobook every year for our anniversary and we both love it! I agree, best gift idea ever! (And, it makes gift shopping much easier since I have one already figured out!)
