Five on Friday {May is Here!}

Happy May, Friends! 

Can you believe we are only 30 days away from being half way through 2014? That’s crazy!

Time for a little Friday Fun with the girls!

I am linking-up with AprilChristinaNatasha, & Darci for Five on Friday!

Kardashian Glow

I’ve never been one for using a self tanning lotion. Given my light colored skin, I usually just turn out looking like I smeared mud on my skin. Ick. I’ve had the occasional spray tan, so I know it can be done…but self tanner? Not so much.

UNTIL I tried the Kardashian Sun Kissed Instant Sunless Lotion. I was recommended by the consultant at Ulta & I am forever grateful! The last time I laid in the tanning bed was a nightmare & I just can’t imagine what it’s doing to my skin. So for all you tan obsessed junkies like me…an alternative! ENJOY!

Two Years

That’s right folks, two years ago on the first Saturday in May, I tied the knot! I am so thankful for my sweet husband and all that he does for me. I can’t imagine life without him…and all his laundry!

Here’s to many more!

On Monday I am supposed to bring you my Derby Party Recap…but I am seriously considering starting a wedding recap since I’ve never shared it before…Two years isnt too late..right?!

May Goals + A Big Announcement

Did y’all miss my post yesterday?! I went through my goals for this month & shared an announcement…check it out here!

I also shared my thoughts on beauty in failure. So often we are discouraged by our shortfalls, but it’s incredibly freeing to know that my identity and my worth are not caught up in worldly ambitions. Read more on yesterday’s post!

Vineyard Vines

It’s still cold up here in Northern Indiana…so it’s only appropriate that I am sporting my long sleeve pocket tee from Vineyard Vines today. They have been deemed the “Official Style of the Kentucky Derby” you know? They recently released their custom-designed derby line of clothing & accessories for men & women.

Now…if only I would have had this hat

Organized Chaos

Remember yesterday when I told you I hadn’t even unpacked some of my clothes from our move a year ago? Well I can officially say I have! I got a little pep in my step yesterday cleaning our bedroom and BAM! A somewhat organized closet…just in time to leave it! Wah!

I hope you had a wonderful week & and even better weekend! Don’t forget to watch the Derby Saturday!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Leave me a comment so I can visit you too!

Frankly my dear…Talk Derby to Me!!

    Happy anniversary to you! Our first anniversary is on Sunday. My how time flies! Well congratulations on getting everything unpacked and put away in your closet…Maybe you could try color coding it to keep things organized (that's what I do!). Good luck with your move….congratulations!!

Our anniversary is coming up in a few months, but with a baby coming along, I'm not sure we're going to be able to do a whole lot to celebrate!I hope you have a great day!

    Oh vineyard vines, I may be from oregon, but I still heart their preppy on prep style!
