Five on Friday!

We've made it to Friday!
We've also made it through the first week of March.
I don't understand how time flies by so quickly!

In typical fabulous Friday fashion, here are 5 of my favorites for the week...

1. Big Bows
My infatuation with bows started 3 years ago. I was sitting in my first session ever of chemo...totally alone in the city I went to college in, 2 hours away from home. It was a nightmare, and this little girl named Christine handed me a little black bow she had in the tiny bit of hair she had left (I was still considered a minor at the time, I didn't just randomly sit with kids at the hospital). I've treasured that bow since. This particular bow was given to me by my nurses last year and I love it! Bows have become one of my favorite things to wear, particularly on hard days, because they remind me that I am not alone, and that everything will always be okay. I've started wearing them more regularly, even on the good days! And this week was a string of great days!

2. Macarons
 Layer Cake & Bakery is officially my favorite coffee and treats place. SO GOOD.

3. DIY-ing!
I'm hosting a fun get together for my girlfriends this weekend and I've been DIY-ing up a storm! Check out these cute cups I bedazzled!

4. Pinning
So. Much. To. Pin. Planning our wedding has taken my Pinterest obsession to a whole new level!

5. Tweeting?????
The rumors are true. I've joined Twitter! I'm pretty terrible at actually tweeting stuff (HOW am I supposed to say everything in 140 characters or less??? #notpossible), but I love reading everyone's updates! 
Come say hey!

What's been rocking your week?

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great weekend!



  1. I wore my big-ish leather bow (sounds weird, but totally cute) the day after you posted your picture on IG &I totally thought of you!

    1. Yay! I love bows!! Your bow doesn't sound weird at all haha, I can totally picture it in my head and I love it! :)

  2. Gosh- I stayed up too many late nights fascinated over the 612,438 new wedding ideas on Pinterest. I'm blogging about my wedding right now- come over and check it out if you get a chance!

    1. The day after we got engaged I binge-pinned! :) trying to come check your blog out, but the link doesn't work. I'd love to follow along though so link it one more time when you get a chance! Hooray to our weddings!

  3. I love wearing bows so much! In high school I had really long hair and made the dramatic decision to cut a majority of it off the day after graduation. I had always had long hair and suddenly I was in college without that extra boost of femininity that used to just come with my hair. I started wearing bows and bowed headbands to start feeling more girly again. I loved your bow story so much. Also, I've been pinning like a mad woman too! My pinning has been about decorating my new apartment in the fall. I'm OBSESSED.

    1. I love YOUR bow story! Sometimes something small and simple really can make a huge difference in the way you feel. Can't wait to see how you decorate everything! And by see I mean see your photos of course hehe :)
