Five on Friday

Friday, September 18, 2015

This week has been crazy busy to say the least! I can't go into too much details but work has been super busy (which is a fantastic thing) so Stephen and I decided to be rebels and run to Downtown Disney on Tuesday evening. Of course, we did the usual - Earl of Sandwich and Ghirardelli and it was fantastic. Downtown Disney has recently finished a lot of their renovations and it is so cool!! If you live close or visit Disney, you have to stop in and see all the neat things they just built!

If Stephen doesn't have to work on Saturday, we are going to Magic Kingdom!! I won single day tickets through work and wanted to save them for fall time. I cannot wait to go spend the day together and enjoy all the fall decorations! Fingers crossed he doesn't have to work. You can see all our past Disney trips (since blogging) here

I'm sure you've heard me talking/complaining about trying to find some good booties for a great price. These booties are amazing (I'd like one in every color, please) but with the $100 price tag, I can't do it. I've found some cute Target booties and waited to buy them to make sure that's what I wanted. Well story of my life, when I went to buy them, they're sold out like everywhere and online. Last night, I found a pair at a nearby Target (called immediately to put them on hold) so hopefully I'll get to run over there after work this evening and pick them up! I also realized that my black flats for work are completely destroyed and I need a new pair. Well, Target to the rescue, is having a BOGO 1/2 off event for all shoes, clothes and accessories - new flats, here I come! These are my absolute favorite pair of flats, but the black ones are too casual for work so I'm opting for the shiny ones. I'm hoping they're comfy.

I'm sure a lot of y'all follow Christina over at Carolina Charm - this week she told everyone that they just found out her precious new baby boy, Thomas, has bilateral congenital cataracts and is going blind.  They have to do immediate surgery so he has a chance of regaining his vision, but is expected to make a recovery and live a normal life. Christina said that today is his first surgery on his right eye and in a few weeks, they'll do another one on his left eye. Please be praying for baby Thomas, Christina, Matt and Caroline as they deal with all the surgeries and uncertainties. 

Yesterday, I announced that I've opened up my Snapchat. You can find me at ashleyhirst23 - hopefully you'll get to see lots of snaps from Disney this weekend!


  1. I love the shoe chooses and maybe even better the Target price tag! Also, how cool is it that you live by Disney?! I love that you can just say you went to downtown Disney on a random Tuesday night. Definitely praying for Thomas, Christina and her family! Have. Great weekend!

  2. So jealous that you live that close to Disney World, it looks like so much fun!! Fingers crossed y'all get to go to Magic Kingdom this weekend! Yay for finding some booties! I really need to look for some. Target's flats are always the best, I love them all. Hope y'all have a good weekend! :)

  3. So jealous of your proximity to Disney! Hope you all have a blast this weekend! So sad about Thomas...lots of prayers for healing!

  4. So fun that you can just pop into disney for a date night!! Hope you have a great weekend girl! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  5. I've never been to Downtown Disney, but I've always wondered about it. It looks like fun! Hope you get to go to Magic Kingdom on Saturday! My husband and I are huge fans of Disney.

  6. Such cute booties! And sounds like a great time at Disney!
