Friday Faves: I bought a king size bed


Good morning Loves and Happy Friday.

This is the first weekend we actually have space to relax and enjoy our apartment.  So that’s exactly what I’m going to do.  Especially since our king sized bed was delivered Thursday afternoon.  I’ve never had a king sized bed in my entire life so I’m really looking forward to laying in bed watching Netflix.

Have a great weekend and enjoy these good reads from our friends:

Friday Faves: The end of my birthday week


Good morning Loves and happy Friday.  It’s official, I’m 34 years old.  I celebrated my birthday with lots of chocolate cupcakes, presents and nothing but me time.  BF got me a gorgeous bouquet of flowers and a spa day at a resort near our new apartment.  I am looking really forward to taking a day off from life and enjoying a relaxing day at the spa with a massage, body wrap and sauna experience.

In honor of our friends up north celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend enjoy these posts from some great Canadians:

(This is the Riverwalk in New Orleans.  P.S. it’s not where we moved)

Good morning Loves.  It’s Friday and BF and I are officially moved into our new apartment, pictures coming soon.  We’re neck high in boxes and I would really like to get as much unpacked as quickly as we can so we can get out and enjoy our new neighborhood as soon as possible.
