post #39 - F5: Jordan's Birthday, Shopping, Fall Wreath, Mint Blazer, & Thursday Night Football

20 September 2013

Happy Friday for September 20!

Happy Friday Bloggy friends! Hope your weeks have been marvelous!

Headed to work early today (no doubt with a Pumpkin Spice Latte in hand - it's FRIDAY!), but I don't even mind because I'm so excited for this weekend! 

1. Jo's Birthday!
Although his birthday is actually on Monday, we both have busy weeks ahead and will be celebrating on Saturday. We're going to one of our favorite Cola restaurants (Saluda's - expect a full review next week!) and I can't wait to give him his gift! We normally do pretty small gifts for birthday and Christmas (read, under $100). I didn't go as all-out or creative as I normally do this year, but it's something I know he's been wanting and I hope he loves! Stay tuned to see what I got him (I'm too afraid to post it, in the off chance he looks at my blog today!) My mouth is already watering at the thought of one my favorite steaks in town!
{this hottie's about to be 26!}

2. Shopping!
I'm heading to Greenville today with a few girlfriends for a Saturday morning shopping trip! ;-) Can't wait to score some amazeballs finds and spend time with some of my favorite ladies!

3. Fall Wreath
I think everyone and their brother sister made a fall wreath last weekend. I wanted something that was more football-y and less fall-y, so I could keep it up until Clemson goes to the National Championship in January. I kid, I kid. Kind of. We actually might make it there, y'all! I keep telling my USC co-worker I'll send him a postcard from Pasadena. Anyways, here's my little wreath - I think it's cozy, simple and festive!

{not the greatest angle, but you get the picture}

4. I Can't Stop Wearing This Blazer
How much is too much? It's mint, so I feel like I can't get away with wearing it as frequently as I would a basic black, navy, or gray. But I've accidentally been wearing it ABOUT once a week to work. And it's wool, so I feel like this trend isn't stopping any time soon. Whoopsie.
{shockingly, I don't wear it paired with the rest of this outfit. do people actually pair this stuff together in real life? it's not happening in columbia, sc!}

5. Thursday Night College Football
Last night, Clemson had our first of two Thursday night games this season. The game was away, but I can't quite decide if I love having Thursday night games or hate it? I do know that I have trouble staying awake until the end! Homegirl's gotta work in the morning! Last night was not our best game, but a win is a win - we'll take it!

Don't forget to follow along on Bloglovin, GFC, and Facebook! As always, I just love reading your comments, and try to always write you back! Thanks for reading!

  1. I have a mini shopping trip on my list for this weekend as well! And I def. prefer weekend games over week night games--too hard to wake up the next morning!!

  2. Yay for shopping trips! Love the wreath--and the friendly office competition lol Seems like EVERYONE was watching the game last night... I was baking while the hubs watched it so I missed out! lol

    Stopping by from H54F! Love your blog!

  3. Love that blazer --- I too am addicted {I shared a few today for my five and am so torn.... pink or gray... pink or gray - ha!}. Target actually has some really cute wool blazers right now for $30! And really, WHO wears that outfit the model has on? I guess models who can get away with it? ;) Happy Friday!

  4. I can't wait to hear what you're getting your hubby for his Bday! My husband's is in October and we usually just go out to dinner. It's the first time celebrating his birthday as a married couple together so I kind of wanted to get him a little something special. Your wreath is super cute but I'm not the DIY type and will probably just buy one. Hope you have a great weekend and get some good buys!!

  5. Happy birthday to your man!! And I am making a fall wreath this weekend--FINALLY!! Can't wait to get it hung on my door!
