High Five for Friday!

Welp, Friday has arrived.  And what an amazing week it has been!!!  I feel like I have so much to be thankful for and so much to look forward to. 


#1:  After much anticipation, I was offered a new job!  I'm so excited to announce that I'll be the manager of the Naperville Hot Mama store in January.  I feel like my life experiences have led me to this and I'm ready to take on a new challenge.

#2: My friend Monika, writer of The Sub Vision, invited me to join her for a Rent the Runway event at the W hotel in Chicago.  It was so much fun!  Wine, appetizers, meeting and mingling with fellow fashion blogger folk.... definitely something I'd like to do again!  Cheers to new experiences!

#3: We ordered our Save the Dates for the wedding!  It will be great to get those out! 

#4: Mike and I had a wonderful rollerskating adventure that led me to realize a little life secret.

#5: I went over to hang out with my mom yesterday -- her birthday is today (Happy Birthday, Mom!) -- and we had a great time wedding planning and cooking.  I made these little puppies for lunch.  Sliced french bread, spread on a thin layer of cream cheese, add some ham (or turkey), a few thin slices of Monterey Jack cheese, tomatoes and cilantro.  Broil until toasty.... delicious!

I'm continually impressed by where life takes me.  I'm so grateful for my support system: friends, family, any of you reading.  It's so important to embrace the people that life brings to you.  And with that, friends, have a wonderful weekend!


  1. congrats on the new job! that's awesome!

  2. What's Hot Mama? I'm from the Wheaton area and it sounds like an awesome maternity store which I would so be interested in next time I'm pregnant! good maternity clothes, hard to come by...


    1. Michelle, it's a store that was created for moms. There's all kinds of great designer brands and a play area for kids, all keeping in mind the needs of current moms. It's not a maternity store, but there's a lot that can be worn during and after pregnancy! You should definitely check it out soon. :)


Thanks so much for commenting. I read every single one. :)
