5 for Friday, Vol. 4

I hope everyone had a great week! I love spending Fridays with Darci, April, Natasha, and Christina!

This place. I may not live in Charleston anymore, but going back always feels like going home. I feel so blessed that I have had the opportunity to live here for two and a half years while I was going to CofC. I'm in a wedding this weekend for one of my best friends who is getting married in this beautiful place. It's gonna be a whirlwind of a weekend, but you better believe I'm gonna set some time aside to just walk around. One of my goals in life is to live in this city again.

This. I'm not always great at creating space for daily quiet time. However, this daily devotional/website has greatly helped with that. The devotionals always hit close to home and are so relevant to my life and what I need to hear. Currently loving the study of "James."

This boots {or something along these lines}. I need want dark brown boots. Once upon a time I had an incredible shoe collection. Then I moved. I was quickly reminded that the shoes I loved so much didn't actually belong to be, but rather they belonged to my mom and sister. Now it's time to start my own collection. The husband is very excited.

This thing. This stupid thing has been the bane of my existence since I purchased it and banished it away to the bottom drawer. It sits in said drawer taunting me knowing that I'm not coordinated enough to use it and will forever end up with the awkward not attractive crimp. I however have finally outsmarted it! If the stupid clamp doesn't work right {or it's user error} just don't use it! 
I refuse to admit how long it took me to figure this out, and yes I plan on asking for a curling wand for Christmas.

This is huge...I have an office! 
I have the kind of job where I need an office, and for the past 3 months I've been bouncing between available offices. Which essentially means I have to carry everything I need where ever I go. It's been annoying and frustrating, but I was thankful to have a job! That all changes because this past week I found out I've been given my very own office! I have a home! Mom and I spent yesterday sketching and brainstorming!

Have a wonderful weekend! I'll be enjoying it in the greatest city!


  1. I'm getting an office (hopefully next week!!), too! First time stopping at your blog :-) Have so much fun in Charleston! I am right down the road in Columbia :-)

  2. Oh my gosh - congrats on the fancy new office!!!! I swear, having your own cozy space at work makes all the difference!

    As for Charleston, it is on our short list of places to visit - we actually planned a trip years ago but went to the beach instead! We have to get there, I've heard nothing but amazing things!

    So glad you shared the "she reads truth" link. EXACTLY WHAT I NEED!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Stopping by from the link up! I've been wanting to dig out the ole curling iron too, but am too scared, lol! Good luck:)

  8. Stopping by from Five on Friday!!! I have the same problem with curling irons! I have heard good things about the Dry Bar's 3 Day Bender curling iron but can't come to terms with the $125 price tag! Ekkkk! Would be a good Christmas gift :)

  9. First-time visitor from Five on Friday. Thanks for sharing 'She Reads Truth'... with the busyness of life, I struggle with daily quiet-time as well. I'm also glad to know that I'm not the only person that draws out furniture plans for a room/office. Congratulations on the new office..I'm sure you will love it!!

  10. Stopping in from the link-up! I always had issues with curling irons too, but then started watching youtube videos and have gotten much better (still not perfect, haha!!!).
