Five on Friday

It's we know what that means.  I'm linking up again with Christina and Karli for Five on Friday!


My 28th birthday was on Tuesday and I had a great time celebrating with family and friends.  I went out to my favorite restaurant and had tiramisu instead of birthday cake...I call that a win!  Daniel got me the "official" Olivia Pope wine glasses at Crate and Barrel!  I can't wait to break them in!

I think my favorite gift, however, was this Harry Potter switch plate.  I love Harry Potter SO much (see this postand  this is my all time favorite quote.  After experiencing the arson of our old house, this quote means even more to me than it did before.  I actually teared up when I opened this gift!


We decided to do our own electrical work.  It was just taking too long and it was a really easy way to save money on our home.  I'm extremely impressed with Daniel's skills as an electrician and love how all of the fixtures turned out!

Our mantels have been installed.  If you remember from this post, a family friend gave us the wood from a 100 year old barn.  I love how they turned out, but there is one glitch.  I want to switch them out!  I like the one on the screen porch better (I love the knotty wood) so we are in the process of getting them swapped out.


We started tile this week!  They've already done both guest bathrooms, the laundry room, and started the master shower.  I'm seriously impressed with how quickly they are working!

I ordered my first set of Jamberry nail wraps.  I've never used them before, but have heard so many great things from friends.  I'm looking forward to some festive nails!

Have you ever used Jamberry?  Did you like them?

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Happy Friday!
