Five on Friday

TGIF!!  I am beyond excited that the weekend is finally upon us and the best day of the week is here!  There's just something about Friday that gets me all warm and fuzzy inside.

Speaking of the warm and fuzzies, nothing gets more excited about Friday than my favorite link-up of the week: Five on Friday with some amazing ladies with some crazy awesome blogs.

So without further adieux, I give you my Friday 5:

My sister's Bachelorette Party invitations came in the mail on Wednesday...and I am loving the simple, elegant look!  I had another invite all picked out, but when I came across this one, at 50% off on VistaPrint, I jumped all over it!  I'm sorry, but when she has 42 people on her invite list, I didn't feel like spending $2.50 and up per invite...these came in at around $1.50...a heck of a better deal!  Plus, I think she will love them too!

Madden and I joined some friends of ours for a little last minute play date to the zoo yesterday morning.  These two are the best of friends, and if her Mom and I had anything to say about it, we would totally arrange their marriage someday!  But seriously, it was so much fun to spend time at one of the best zoos in the nation.  Literally, we take for granted that the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo is just down the road from us...we will definitely be making more trips there the older Madden gets!

 We are in the process of brainstorming ideas for Madden's "Big Boy" room and I've been browsing Pinterest for some ideas...when I came across this little do it yourself gem.  How cute is that?  I'm loving the use of mixed patterns with the personalization of his name.  I'm definitely going to be hitting up Hobby Lobby for all the supplies to make these bad boys!

This dip.  O.M.G!!!  This stuff is seriously amazingness.  Do you like Nutella?  (Of course you do...who doesn't!) Do you like cheesecake? (Um, I haven't met a person who has ever answered no to that question)  Well, if you combine the flavors of the two, you get this delicious Nutella Cheesecake dip.  Seriously, y'all.  Heaven in your mouth.  Plus it's super simple!!  Find that recipe here.

Y'all.  I die over this adorableness.  Like for reals.  This outfit just screams Fall and I must.have.those boots and that dress!  If anyone can tell me where to find either or both of them, please let me know!!  I found this pin on Pinterest and it doesn't link to anything legitimate...just another picture website!  But seriously.  I need this in my closet like yesterday!!  Adorbs.  

That's all I got for you lovelies for today...have a great weekend!!
Until next time...
