Five on Friday: Randoms

Is it already Friday again?  Wow this week flew by!  I’m thankful for the upcoming weekend. Lots of fun planned.

Today, I’m linking up with The Good Life Blog for Five on Friday.

1. My sweet friend Cristi recently went to Israel (check her blog for amazing recaps!) and she was SO thoughtful to get this necklace for me.  Y’all…it’s my name in Hebrew!  How neat is that?!?!  And she also picked up this olive wood prayer cross for my momma. We have Jewish heritage and this was just so special to me.

2. We had dinner Monday night at Mom’s (because she made my favorite….porcupine meatballs!) and we got out the Connect 4.  It’s a new favorite game in our family.  Gram gets so competitive with it! I love it!

3.So the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show happened this week.  We don’t usually watch it…but we were on that channel when it started…and the opener caught our attention.  It was Fall Out Boy with Taylor Swift.  Now, I’m not a Swifty hater…but she’s not my fave.  But y’all…she seemed SO confident and just commanded the stage.  In fact, Tyler remarked that he was watching Taylor instead of the models because she was doing so great.  This is a video of the entire fashion show…she sings in the opener with Fall out Boy at 2:35 and knocks it out of the park. Her best performance comes at 5:42 with “Trouble” 

4. My sweet friend Brandy invited me to the local high school’s Madrigal Feast last night.  It was so fun to see the choir and the performance.  GREAT festive evening.

The whole room was dimly lit with candle light.  It set a great mood.

And since it was renaissannce themed, we were lords and ladies for the evening.  This was my place card!

5. I went to Sephora yesterday and bought the Naked 3 palette.  I’m in love with it.

I hope you have a great weekend! See you Monday!

Are you finished with your Christmas shopping?  I am!  I just have one craft project to complete and we will be all finished!!


  1. I completely agree!! I’m not a fan of t-swift and when I heard she was performing I was like ehhh ok but she OWNED that stage! Loved it! Anyway have a fabulous weekend!

  2. I want a NAKED palette! So jealous!

  3. I’m so glad you love the necklace! I thought about you so many times while in Israel! Love ya sweet friend! <3

  4. YOU GOT NAKED3?!?!?! Obviously I am dying of envy. DYING!!!!!! Also, I had to go look at the recipe for the porcupine meatballs. Just to make sure you crazy people in Arkansas don’t actually EAT REAL PORCUPINES. Glad to see you don’t!!! 😉

  5. I love my Naked Basics! I only use a few colors every day but I love it for all my needs.

  6. WOW! What an amazing gift. I want to go there someday myself!!!
    Happy merry weekend, beauty! xx
