Five on Friday

Image via

Happy Good Friday!  This has been one l-o-n-g week.  Nick has been out of town for work since Monday and the week just went so slow.  While I did partake in all of my favorite single girl activities, I don't sleep great while he's gone and the house is too quiet.  And I don't have anyone to tell me to stop eating all of the Cadbury Eggs... so I'm very happy he's home and that he has the day off today - let the weekend begin!  We've got dinner plans with friends the next two nights, I'm helping with a local charity on Saturday and we'll do church + brunch for Easter on Sunday.  Good times ahead :)

to do
Tis the season for spring cleaning, this is a super comprehensive checklist.
Homemade cinnamon rolls are a great addition to any Easter brunch.
Paint your nails in the perfect shade of baby pink.
Catch up on the She Reads Truth Easter study.
Pick up a bouquet of fresh flowers - use these tips to help keep them alive!
