Five on Friday 1/16

Happy Friday!  Thanks for all your help yesterday with my rug dilemma (first world problems).  I finally decided to go with the West Elm herringbone jute rug but now the size I need is sold out.  Womp womp.  It does feel good to have made a decision at the least!  

Here are a few other highlights from the week...

ONE | Puppy Class
Brady boy had his first puppy class this week!  It was kind of hilarious.  There are six puppies in the class and they were all over the place on Tuesday night.  I think he probably had the most energy but he was the only one that didn't bark at all so that's a win in my book.  We're looking forward to the next seven weeks and hopeful that they can cure this guy from jumping up on counters and stealing towels.


TWO | Oscar Buzz
Yesterday the nominees were announced for the 2015 Academy Awards.  I always love to watch but usually it's for the fashion since I haven't seen any of the movies.  This year that's going to change and I want to see all of the top picks before the show next month!  We're going to start with American Sniper this weekend. 

THREE | Goodnight Macaroon
I have a new love - an online boutique called Goodnight Macaroon.  They have the most adorable clothes but their coat selection is particularly on point.  Which is good for me because it's like -20 degrees over here.  This beauty is my favorite.


FOUR | Florida Bound
Speaking of cold weather... goodbye because Florida, here we come!  We booked our yearly spring break trip this week and I am counting down the days.  We're going to try out Clearwater Beach for the first time so any recommendations for that area are more than welcome! 


FIVE | The Survey Says
Thank you so, so, so much to everyone who took my blog survey this week!  You guys are awesome and I got some really great feedback (it's still open if you missed it, click here).  It appears that lifestyle, home decorating and beauty are your favorite posts so be on the lookout for more of those.  Luckily those are also my favorite to write :)

Enjoy your weekend!

  12. Hey girl! I live about 40 minutes south of Clearwater. There are a ton of great restaurants and things to do around there. My top restaurant picks would be: Salt n' Pepper Bistro, Clear Sky Cafe, and Columbia. You will definitely have a good time here!

  14. I'm late to the party, but I love your blog redesign! I'm working on one with a designer now, too :)

    I usually only see one of the movies that get an Oscar nom, but there are so many good ones! We want to see American Sniper too - let us know how you like it! I feel like I will cry the. whole. entire. movie.

  15. Isn't that always the way? Find something you like, and then realize it's not available. I swear, that happens to me all the time. So frustrating, lol! Hoping you'll find another good option soon!:) Can't believe how big Brady is. Seems like just yesterday, he was a tiny puppy. He's so handsome:) And, I've heard of Goodnight Macaroon - I think Sheaffer over at Pinterest Told Me To worked with them on a few posts if I remember correctly. Their stuff is SO cute, I don't know how I forgot about them. Will def be heading over to check them out now:)

  16. I think that was a great choice on the rug! A Florida trip is perfect for you guys to get out of that weather!! I've been to Clearwater a few times but can't remember any of the places we ate at so I'm no help.. haha. You will enjoy it though! It's close to Tampa if you want to drive up for a day, Busch Gardens is fun because it won't be very busy this time of year.

  17. So glad you got some answers on your rug and also your blog survey! Loved that idea and can't wait to see what you have in store for us! You will have a blast in Clearwater! Where are yall staying??

  18. Yay for Clearwater beach! We actually looked into that for our honeymoon, and it looks like a great beach/area to vacation in. Awe, Brady and his first puppy class! I wish you the best of luck ... we think we are going to sign Finn up for another class in the spring since he's a bit older now, and some of the commands may stick better. Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

  19. SO jealous of your FL trip!! Escaping the snow and cold is definitely a must!! Happy weekend and movie watching!!

  20. Yay for Florida! I have never been to Clearwater, but I'm sure that it will be beautiful. Anything is better than the cold right?! Stinks that rug is sold out, maybe you could find something similar? We found our rug on Home Decorators, maybe see if they have something like that..Otherwise I'm sure that it will come back in stock. That website sounds great, I'll have to check it out. I was thinking about seeing all of the Oscar nominee movies as well. I really only care about the fashion though haha. Have a fab weekend!!!

  21. Glad you had good feedback on your survey! Brady in puppy class, too cute :) Cheers to him for no barking. I cracked up at the pic you shared of his torn up toy, oh puppies! YAY for booking your FL trip too, ahhhh sunshine! I'm headed there this weekend, looking forward to some warmer temps.

  22. Ah! I can't wait to go on another trip. I think we'll take one in May. I can't wait to see how you like Florida!

  23. Desperately needing a warm-weather vacation, that's for sure! Loving that coat -- and I so wish I had put Soph in puppy class. She is so, so stubborn. So smart, but she does what she wants when she wants. Happy Friday!

  30. Yay! It's always so exciting to book a holiday. It makes it feel likes it's real and that it's coming soon! I'm sure Brady is going to be a rockstar in his puppy class. My girl just turned two and she still thinks she's a puppy sometimes :) Good luck with your Oscar movie marathon! I'd love to watch them all too, so we'll see how we do!

  31. I looove that coat! So jealous of your Florida trip! We were there for a wedding a couple of weeks ago but it was such a quick trip we didn't get to enjoy very much of the warm weather. I want to try and see more of the movies before the Oscars this year too!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Ummmmmm I am like 20 mins from Clearwater Beach you have to tell me when you are here and we will go and grab brunch!

    ReplyDelete

    Have a wonderful Friday!!

    xo Always, Abby

  34. I want to see American Sniper too. Have soooo much fun in Florida. I am so jealous! I remember puppy class. Scout did terrible. He didn't listen. He just went around and picked up all the training treats the other dogs left behind. Smarty. Hope it goes better for Brady! Have a great weekend!

  35. That's too fun about Brady's puppy classes! I am so glad to hear you picked a rug, but too bad they don't have the size you need. I love that green coat too! Stay warm! This weather is brutal! Have a great weekend!!

  36. Ahhh my husband wants to see American Sniper sooo bad. I read the book, and honestly don't think I could make it through the movie without crying. Therefore, I want to do so in the privacy of my own home when it comes out on DVD. Also Brady is freaking adorable! -Dorrie @ Bear Den Plantation
