5 on Friday

I promise I will finish our wedding recaps next week, but since this week has been crazy I'll be joining in with 5 on Friday today.

ONE // This is our last "free" weekend until the end of October. Between a bachelor party, a concert, and weddings we are going to be busy and surrounded by family and friends, and WE CAN"T WAIT! Next Thursday afternoon when I get off is when it alllll starts and I am so excited. So this weekend we are going to get a lot of things done around town and at our apartment. Fingers crossed we get that last dining room chair painted lol. 

TWO // In 15 days I will be going to the Ben Rector concert with my sister here in Nashville and we are counting down the days! We saw him back in 2013 when he came to Nashville, but missed his show last year. I completely missed when his tickets went on sale for the show on the 9th, but about flipped out when I found out they added another night because his first show sold out SO quickly. The day they went on sale I was at my computer, logged in, had our card information in, and had them in my cart ready to be bought. Matthew knew how important these were to me so he text me as soon as they went on sale and said he had been doing the same thing and had two in his cart to be purchased if I wasn't able to get them in time. SO, SO sweet of him!! Don't worry we didn't buy two sets of tickets lol. I told him I already had them and he cancelled out of his. I surprised my sister the following weekend with them because I just couldn't wait any longer. My sister and I love his music and listen to it ALL the time. Ben Rector was probably 85% of our wedding playlist, and I still listen to it He is just so good!
Fingers crossed we get to move seats like last time ;) 

THREE // As soon as my best friend's wedding is over I am getting a much needed haircut! I love when my hair gets long but goodness, it's so thick and so much to deal with. I've been rocking the low messy buns a lot these past few weeks! It NEEDS to be cut, so many dead ends, it's embarrassing.
Here is what I'm thinking, length wise.

FOUR // We used out crockpot yesterday for the first time and it was literally like a whole new experience lol. I have used my old crockpot plenty of times but this one is just wonderful. We got it for our wedding and love it! I'll be sharing the recipe next week, but if you are following me on Instagram, then you should have already been able to get the recipe.

FIVE // Thanks to Ashley over at Hanging with the Hirsts I was informed by some of her previous posts that Target had their shoes buy one get on 50% off. I have been looking for some nude shoes for Kathleen's wedding next weekend and found these
they are only $16.99 and since they were buy one get one 50% off I grabbed these, too!
My sister bought the tan pair last fall and I absolutely LOVED them and wore them when I came home, so I knew they would go with most of my outfits and how they feel. I love wearing flats and love this tan color. They are really comfy and don't leave my feet aching after wearing them all day. 

Hope you all have a great weekend! 


  1. Have so much fun enjoying your last "free" weekend! October sounds like a blast! I am obsessed with that hair! I feel like mine is so bleh because it's so thick. I might steal that first picture as a reference for the much needed hair cut that I need to get. Crock pot meals are the best!! I love making meals with it on Sunday's :) Thanks for the shout-out!! LOVE those brown ones and keep wondering if I need to stock pile them for when I need to replace my current pair lol Glad you were able to get 2 good pairs!

  2. Love your haircut inspiration photos! We love our crockpot!! I do a lot of freezer meals and cook them in the crockpot & it makes cooking during the week so much easier! I have those Target flats in black & love them (wearing them right now) :)

  3. I need to get on board with the crockpot! I think we've only used ours once since we got married. And that was for black eyed peas or something and not for a meal! Oops.

    Happy Weekend!

  4. Crockpots are my jam!! I see you guys registered for a nice one with a timer!! ;) Good choice! hehe

  5. I love my Crock Pot. I'm seriously considering investing in the Crock Pots that plug into each other.
