5 on Friday

Cheers to the ladies that started 5 on Friday! I love reading others favorites on Friday and gathering fun recipes, sales, styles and decoration ideas. Thanks for sharing ladies!

Now for my 5 on Friday.

{one} Advent Calendars


I'm on the lookout for a great advent calendar that we can have for every holiday season. I love this one above I found on Pinterest, but I couldn't find where it came from. Thinking about asking the sister in law to make me one. {hint, hint}

{two} Gold Rimmed Glassware

I am in love with these glasses - they would be so perfect paired with our beautiful china. 
{that is still in storage} Hey, a girl can wish right?

{three} S'mores

I've been dying for s'mores lately... and I'm hopping this weekend they finally happen. 
How cute are these mini-s'mores above?  Precious! I can't wait to make them for my N&N's!

{four} Antique Candle Holders


How beautiful are these candle sticks? I have been on the lookout for antique holders like the ones above - maybe it's the old soul in me, but it's one of the very few things I wished we had gotten for our wedding and didn't. Why does my mom have like 15 pair?? 

{five} My Awesome friends

"Sometimes,' said Pooh, 'the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.” 
― A.A. Milne

I thought I would keep the thankfulness going from last week's 5 on Friday and throw in a lil thankfulness today. I am truely blessed with such a wonderful assortment of friends. I am been reminded at every turn this week that I am surrounded by the best group of friends and family a girl could ask for... they are there to lift me up, make me smile, bring me to tears {of joy}, and tickle me silly over nothing at all. Thank you lord for giving me so many blessings of friendship - near and far. I am truly thankful.

Happy Friday!
