Five for Friday

I'm linking up with the talented Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching for this fun linky party.

(1) This is my last week of winter vacation...Booo! I've been loving lazy days in my pajamas. Here's hoping for some snow days soon!

(2) I went to see Les Miserables on Monday. It was so good! I've seen the musical at least 5 times live and I was afraid the movie would disappoint me. I was really surprised how good it was.

(3) I bought a new couch today and it is so pretty. I also got a rug. They looked too good together. I love decorating my home!

 This is close to the couch that I got. The pillows are a little different and the couch has more of a herringbone pattern.
This is the rug I got to go with it. It's really pretty in person..not so much on here. The blue is gorgeous and goes with the little bit of blue on the pillows.

(4)  I've loved reading all the posts for my linky party. I love hearing about new books. Check it out by clicking the image below.

 (5) I've been shopping up a storm for my sister-in-laws baby shower. It's gotten a little bit out of control. I also painted a picture for his nursery. I don't think she reads this so I'll post a picture of it.

His name is on the right side. I'm overly critical of my work so I may play with it some more. I'm not to the point of really liking it yet. 


  1. The giraffe you painted is so, so cute! You don't need to change a thing! It seems perfect for a little boys room.
