5 In Friday Favorites

Friday Favorites No. 31: Cinco de Mayo

Happy Friday! As I mentioned yesterday, I have so much to share from Charleston and much more on my blog post to-do list, but we’re headed to Florida for some R&R, so it may be a minute before I get to everything! In the meantime, however, you should check out Erin’s post here!  This is such a sweet, transitional season in so many ways for us. Here are the highlights from this past week!


Second Nationals Game of the Season! 

My monogrammed hat is from Carolina Dandy here!

Y’all, I’m so proud. In April alone I went to TWO Nationals games. I feel so American. They aren’t the Cardinals, but we sure love watching the presidents mascots race. This made me feel like it was summer, and I was not ready for the cold snap we’re experiencing today!


Helen Olivia Floral Arranging Class 

I crossed off a great 30 before 30 goal this week when I attended a floral arrangement class at Helen Olivia Flowers! It was really fun and easier than I thought. I learned a ton! Of course, the florist picked out our flowers for us, and I imagine the real challenge would be to shop for the right greenery and blooms, but at least I feel better about arranging next time I pick up a bouquet at the grocery store.


Moving Out the Guest Room

Thank goodness for our friends! The nursery is seeing some real progress! All the extra furniture is now in the storage unit thanks to these lovely people, and we have a dresser and a crib! All that’s left is a glider and then putting it all together! I’m SO grateful for this progress.


Pre-Order Cultivate!

 I am SO excited about this. Lara Casey’s new book, Cultivate, comes out in June! Just in time to keep me occupied while we wait for baby. Lara is an incredible woman with so much wisdom to share about how to do life well, and I hear this is full of all-new stories and completely new content. The best news is that if you preorder your copy today, you get a bunch of fun free bonuses!!! You can read all about the book (and watch a video on it) here, and claim your free bonuses here!

    Catherine! So I binge on my favorite blogs when I can and I got to your post and realized you’re the Catherine that bought the monogrammed hat from me (Carolina Dandy)! So funny! I saw your name/order, but wasn’t sure it was you until I’m catching up on CC and see it above. Thanks so much for supporting my shop! I hope you’re enjoying your hat! xo-Addison
