High Five for Friday

Happy Friday!  Let's get right to it with a little about my week...

1. Dressing for Summer... still: The Southeast did not yet get the memo that fall is here.  The weather has been in the high 80s recently, and honestly, I'm loving it.  My fall clothes aren't getting the wear they should be, but I'll keep wearing bright colors as long as I can.  Here's my favorite look right now: sandals c/o Oka-B (Clemson friends, how great is this color?!), palma tassel topwhite jeans, and drop earrings.
2. Fall television: There is so much to look forward to this season.  Returning shows I'll be watching are Designated Survivor, The Big Bang Theory, Great News (Tina Fey will be on it this fall!!), SVU, Modern Family, and Stranger Things.  There's not too many new shows I'm thrilled about (or hours left in the day after all the shows above), but Law and Order True Crime and Young Sheldon do look good.  What I'm most excited about, fitting right in the middle of both categories is definitely Will & Grace!

3. My favorite memories: Photos are my favorite way to remember our life and things we've done.  That's why I started this blog in the first place.  Earlier this month, we had a neighbor take a few photos of us for our anniversary and for me to use as a new headshot (I guess after 3 years, it's time to switch up my bridal portrait profile photos...).  We decided to do the shoot right at our home, and I can't wait to switch up some of our frames with these photos.  If you're in the Charleston area, Ashleigh of Following Seas Photography is a joy!
4. A weekend away: Last weekend, Mike suggested that we take a quick long weekend trip sometime in December, before Christmas.  We both have huge things happening for work in November (a couple trips for me and a huge project for him), so he says we deserve a little getaway before the craziness of the holidays - I'm in!  We're looking for somewhere Southwest flies, whether in the US or international.  First thought was Cuba, but it may be more tricky now with the rolled-back sanctions?  Maybe an all-inclusive somewhere in the Caribbean? Or somewhere like Palm Springs or the Florida Keys - any suggestions or ideas?

5. Blog post recap - Chicago love: Oh goodness, I'm still dreaming of our weekend in Chicago.  In case you missed it, my two posts this week are linked here: 10 ways to make the most out of your weekend and 10 photo spots you cannot miss!  In the past, I've always done top 5s in cities we travel to (like Denver and Charlotte), but there was just so much to offer in the Windy City!


I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

Your anniversary photos turned out so beautiful, and I love that you took them at your house! A trip right before the holidays sounds amazing! If you want something relaxing, definitely go for an all inclusive. Southwest flies to Cabo now which could be fun! Or I always think Disney is a great idea, especially during the Christmas season!

I think us girls who move south from the north appreciate the warm weather well into fall instead of rushing fall. Bring on all the summer clothes and bright colors! An all-inclusive is always one of our top picks, because you can't beat those gorgeous beaches and unlimited drinks! Happy Friday girlie <3

Good for you - I absolutely love when people do pictures at their home. There's something so personal about it that you'll love years down the road.
& front porch pictures?!?!?! Always a must for me!
