5 on Friday

Friday, April 1, 2016

Is it just me or did this week fly by? I'm not complaining though and am welcoming the weekend [and April] with open arms! Since today is April Fools, do y'all have any pranks planned? Every year I got my mom with taping the kitchen sink sprayer so when she turned on the water, she got sprayed. Last year I did something funny but Stephen didn't notice it since he had a long day at work so this year, I plan on bringing it back. I'll share on Monday :)

This would be the best prank for my office! 

This is super random but I follow Jason Kennedy (the E! News anchor) on snapchat and he is an absolute riot sometimes!! With the face altering filters, he will come up with these voices and stories that fit perfectly with the filter! It's hysterical and I'm not sure if anyone else follows him over here in blogland but I thought that I'd share. His name is unclejj1981.

Everyone's been going crazy with the new Instagram updates and my feed was FILLED with "turn on notification" pictures. I was worried about not seeing people's pictures that I liked following but I didn't want to be getting hundreds of notifications anytime someone posted something. One of my favorite bloggers, Krista wrote an article about the changes - what they are and what they aren't.

I mentioned this in my Easter post but for Christmas this past year, we asked my in-laws for some rocking chairs for our front porch. We didn't receive them because the stores weren't carrying them at that time. Home Depot finally had some over Easter weekend and they took us to pick 2 out. They've only been on our front porch a few days but we love them!! Unfortunately, there's lots of bugs around but one evening I powered through and enjoyed blogging from the front porch. Can't wait for summer nights chatting with Stephen out there :)

I've been seeing the Our Queen at 90 documentary floating around and finally watched it the other day! I really enjoyed it and if you love the royal family, you'll really enjoy this video!! It's on the long side but still very good!

I stumbled upon this blog post about conflict resolution within marriage and I could really relate to it. I found myself nodding in agreement while reading it tons of times and thought that I'd share!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!! Tomorrow morning, I'm meeting some friends for breakfast followed by a movie and hopefully we'll get to check out some nurseries afterwards for our landscaping overhaul. Hopefully the rest of the weekend will consist of lots of relaxation!


  1. Love that prank, I would totally go for that in the office! The rocking chairs look great, definitely worth the wait!

    1. Yes!! I was hoping for some donuts based on all the Q3 changes but nothing... Loving finally having some rocking chairs out there!!

  2. I love rocking chairs and so wish we had a front porch to put some on! And it's totally on my to-do list to watch that documentary!!!

  3. Your rocking chairs are so cute!! Someone did that donut prank at our office yesterday for an early April Fools!

  4. That donut prank is just hilarious! If I had thought about it I probably would have done that at our office lol. Every Friday someone usually brings in some kind of sweets and that would have been the perfect prank! Hope Stephen notices your prank!!!!

    I love, love, love your rocking chairs!! We are hoping to go look at a few local nurseries tomorrow morning, too! Hope y'all have a great weekend! :)

  5. Loved that article about the instagram changes - it was crazy how people were reacting to it lol! Have a great weekend! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  7. That's Krispy Kreme box is hilarious. Your front porch is so cute. I can't wait to have a front porch like this. Put a swing on it, and I'd be out there all the time.

  8. Ohh that krispy kreme joke is too funny! HAve a wonderful weekend
