Five on Friday

Friday, January 20, 2017

I'm excited that it's Friday but I'm bummed Stephen's going to have to work tonight since his launch got scrubbed last night. We were both really looking forward to watching a few episodes of Downton Abbey tonight, especially since it's been 3 nights since we watched it - we're having serious withdrawals ;)

I've been busy, busy embroidering all sorts of things - it's been so much fun! I can't wait to really have time to work on orders tomorrow. I finished a bridal robe set for one of my sorority sisters and they turned out great!

I also did my first applique bib for one of our friends who had their first little boy last week! He's been in the NICU since his birth but is doing really well! I cannot wait to meet him and I hope that Tristan's first monogrammed item put a smile on his parents' face :)

So was it just me or was I the only one who didn't realize we were only on season 1 of This is Us? I guess with the Christmas break, it felt like season 2 started already. I'm really excited to hear they renewed for 2 more seasons, although I really wonder what the plots will be.

I've been really impressed with the flowers from Publix, lately. If we have guests, I like to get some hydrangeas to put in a vase on our coffee table, so when my sister and her boyfriend came to town last weekend, I had to get some fresh blooms. They didn't have hydrangeas so I got some fun flowers to put in the vase together. I really like how it turned out and they still look brand new a full week later!

I'm hoping to try to get a good picture of Stephen's launch tonight with my new camera... this is going to be very interesting since I have no clue what I'm doing. If you have any tips for night photos with a bright fire, please send them my way :)

Well, I'm watching the newest episode of This is Us and it's a sad one, so I keep getting distracted and can't come up with a 5th item lol! I hope everyone has a great weekend! I'm looking forward to sleep, embroidery and supper club :)


  1. The launch tonight sounds exciting!! I think there's a nighttime setting on the Canon's but I have issues with mine sometimes! I would get there early and practice with some settings!

  2. Boo for Stephen having to work late again tonight, but I hope you're able to get a good picture!! That robe and bib are adorable and I bet your friends will love them!!!! :) Those flowers are beautiful!!!! Hope y'all have a great weekend! :)
