Friday's Five 2/20

Happy Friday and happy wedding day to one very special blogger, right?!  I hope you've all had a good week.  Ours has been pretty dull and slow (and cold) but tis the season.  We have a fun weekend ahead of us though - our friends are coming to visit and we're going skiing tomorrow!  Fingers crossed I don't break anything.  

ONE | Dining Table
I think I've officially decided on a dining table - woo woo!  I'm going with the Carroll Farm table from West Elm (of course).  Now just waiting for it to go on sale.


TWO | Lent
Lent has begun and I've officially given up my phone/computer after dinner.  So far so good - I've been a lot more present at night with Nick and have been reading more (loving this book) in place of scrolling Instagram or checking blog emails.  It's been nice... hard, but nice.

 
THREE | Brownie Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bars
I'm making these this afternoon and am very excited.  Brownies + cookie dough + peanut butter = all my favorite things.


FOUR | The Bachelor
What are you guys thinking about this season of The Bachelor?!  I'm really liking it and my vote for Chris is Whitney.  I can't believe we're down to only three girls left.  Oh, and if you don't read Pinterest Told Me To's Bachelor recaps - you have to start.  They are hilarious and maybe even better than the show itself.

FIVE | White Pants
I want these.  But where would I wear them and could I really pull them off?  I don't know but that doesn't stop my lusting.


Enjoy your weekends and I'll see you on Monday!
Linking up with KarliJennieRebecca and April

  1. Happy Friday Katie!! I love your five on Friday this week, especially that gorgeous dining table and what you've given up for lent. I've been trying to be more "present" as well and sometimes, I just need to be reminded to put down my gadgets and enjoy what's around me :)

  4. That table is everything. LOVE it so much! And love those pants too - but am like you and would be a little worried about their wearability factor. Happy weekend, sweet girl! :)

  6. That table is so gorgeous! Love the color of the finish. Love your Lent resolution. I really have to find better (any?) "turn it off" hours. It kind of drives me nuts to just sit and watch TV for hours but there are so many other things I could be doing rather than sitting on my computer after dinner until we go to bed!

  7. That table is gorgeous... oh how I love West Elm! As for the Bachelor, I'm sad Jade was sent home, she was my fav from the beginning so now I'm just watching to see what happens.

    Happy Friday gurlie <3

  9. Mmmm those bars look so yummy! Whitney is getting my vote as well...can't wait to see how it all turns out, and who the next Bachelorette will be!

  10. I LOVED that look on Julia recently - those pants definitely are swoon worthy. I swear that you and I should just get together and decorate each other's houses because it seems like we are going for the same look in every room, lol. I'm hoping to get a rustic-inspired dining table at some point, too! Hope you have a fun weekend with your friends!

  11. Those brownies look and sound amazing. Can I come over for some? I'll bring you a warm beverage! Haha. That dining room table is really nice, I like it. :-) I wasn't feeling well on Wednesday so I didn't make it to church. I feel so bad. :-( Good for you on being more present. I have been doing my best to stay off of my phone and the computer at night. I hope that you have a great weekend!!! :-)

  14. Giving up my phone and computer after dinner would be so hard for me!! You are strong for doing that! I love the white pants and you could for sure pull them off! Happy weekend!!

  15. I'm totally on Team Whitney for The Bachelor. I do like the other girls left, I just think she'd be the best match long-term. I'm curious about who will be The Bachelorette. I think Kaitlyn would make it interesting.

  16. I'm split between Becca and Whitney -- I love both of them! Love my Bachelor nights for sure. And that West Elm table is absolutely gorgeous! Love it. Happy Weekend!

  17. Love that West Elm table, but of course, I love pretty much every single item from that store. And I think Whitney is his choice in the end, but I do really like Becca.
