High Five for Friday!

Hello Loves! Welcome back to another week of High Five for Friday! Can you believe that Katie, Tif, Della and I have been hosting for nearly a year now?! It's been so fun getting to know you all and share our lives with you. I'm really looking forward to another wonderful year with you!

Just a little housekeeping: We won't be having a featured blogger this week, since we weren't sure how many would be blogging on New Year's Day, but it will be back in action next week! We will be tweaking the H54F experience in the next couple weeks with a new type of linkup, and a few other fun things :) Don't forget to mark your calendar for our next H54F Google Hangout on January 14!

Now, this week's five! 

1. I chose the word trust as my word of the year for 2015, and elaborated yesterday just how that played out for my year. It's been an eventful one, for sure. Next week I'll be sharing my 2016 word of the year. 

2. We had such a wonderful Christmas, and I hope you did too! I am just now catching up with my sleep, but this year really was so much fun with Juliet. She knew who Santa was (even though she was scared of him) and she enjoyed opening her--and everyone else's-- gifts. Plus we surprised her with a doll house! 

3. I'm officially old. My hubby and I fell asleep on the couch well before midnight, and I'm not even mad about it! We did get dinner, which was a fun trea, but that's all I really need. 

4. We're working on getting our house in showing shape, so if/when we want to sell (hopefully by this spring!) it's done and we just have to do basic cleaning instead of full fledged purging and deep cleaning in a frenzy. We've made some good progress already! 

5. I'm looking at getting a serger so I can start really sewing.  I'm a pretty novice seamstress, but I'd love to be able to make clothes for myself and Juliet, and I know serging will be must faster and more professional looking. I'm definitely open to suggestions if anyone has some!

How was your week? I'd love to hear!

Fellow bloggers – ready to join in the link up? Just write a blog post about 5 things that made this week awesome! Add your link to your blog post down below (make sure it’s your blog post, not your blog home page!!). We ask that you follow each co-host on either GFC or Bloglovin' and link back to the link-up. You can even grab the H54F button to add to your post!
Don’t forget to visit your fellow linkers and say hi! We recommend visiting the featured blogger + 3 others. Drop 'em a comment to let them know that you're visiting from H54F so that they can visit you back!

We always try to stop by everyone's blog and say hi. In addition to commenting, we'd love to start interacting with you on social media as well! In growing your blog, social media presence is so important. Let us know in the comments below if there's a certain social media platform you prefer!


  1. I am glad you had a great Christmas! Good work on getting your house all ready. It is a lot of work! We have a few things that we really need to tackle in our home but I find that we are good at putting things off, ha ha. Happy New Year!

    1. Happy New Year! We definitely still have a lot of purging to do, but it's definitely getting closer! Who knew you could collect so much junk in 3 years of marriage?

  2. Cute photos :)
