Five on Friday, Vol. 8

Happy Friday All!
Linking up with the lovely Darci, Natasha, April, and Christina to share a few favorites this week.


During my first solo shopping trip last Friday I picked up this dress. James' work has a big Christmas party every year and I thought this would be cute to dress it up. It doubles as a great work dress and is the most comfortable thing ever! I'm planning of wearing tights and little black booties for the party. I'm seriously considering stepping out of my box and wearing black tights with little gold dots to add some sparkle {yup, really going crazy here ;)}. 
Any of you fashion smart people have any advice? Gold dots or just textured black tights?

I linked over yesterday to The Thankful Project for the first time. Today's prompt is: an annoyance. I actually wrote about this earlier this week. Rather than rehash it all again I'll just send you over to it here. It so hard to appreciate the hard and annoying stuff, but ultimately the hard stuff is what brings me closer to God. So, that's it reason enough for me to appreciate the annoyances.

When I lived with my parents my dad used to bring me Starbucks almost everyday after his 6 am run. It was great. I think that was the one habit James was most worried about me not breaking when we got married. I've suffered through survived without my daily Starbucks fix.
Wednesday night James was on a work trip in Rhode Island, so I stayed the night with mom and dad. I woke up yesterday morning to my Starbucks delivered by dad. My heart was so happy. I love that man!

Yes, I'm married. Yes, I already planned my dream wedding. Yes, I bought this magazine. 
Yes, I'm so excited to read it. What can I say? I'm a sucker for pretty wedding pictures!

{F I V E}

We're going camping this weekend. I'm hoping to give y'all a recap on Monday as long as we don't freeze and as long as we survive {I may have a super irrational fear of dying in the woods}. James loves camping. I love sleeping in beds. I'm going along with this because it makes him happy. The things we do for those we love :)

Have a safe, happy, and warm weekend!
