Five on Friday

Five on Friday!

1.  My best buddies!  They laid like that for hours last weekend and it was so cute.

2.  This week we had all of our leaves FINALLY removed, they cut back our crate myrtles, cleaned our gutters and removed 6 dead plants at the front of our house (the low green ones had died and were ugly).  Here is the before (also before we had new lights and painted the shutters):  

And here is the after....we need to come up with a landscaping plan for this spring when it's time to plant!  I do like how clean it looks now but after 15 years, the landscaping is so mature, it needs to be ripped out and put back in.  Just like we did with our bottom beds.  

3.  I don't know if I've mentioned it on here but I'm working from home one day a week now and I LOVE it.  I've been doing it since October.  It makes my sanity level much more maintainable.  Traveling 2-3 days/week then going into the office for 10-11 hour days on the days I was in Charlotte was killing me and did for 7.5 years.  Now I play catch up on my email on my day at home and feel SO much better when I go to my office.  The day I stay home always varies depending on my travel schedule that week.  It's so nice and I'm thankful for the flexibility.  I was one of those in college who had the discipline for online courses and I'm the same with this.  I love knocking work out and I really don't screw around at home.

4.  Okay I can't wait to show you the drapes I ordered last night for the nursery.  

5.  Do you all have a fun weekend planned?  Mills has a play date, I have a lunch with friends and Kevin and I are hanging with a few other couples on Saturday night.

Happy weekend!

I love those drapes. We also went with a navy, light blue, and white nursery.

My Friday work from home days are my favorite...a huge perk! Also love the curtains!

Love the drapes! I've been lucky enough to work for two companies now that have flexible working from home policies. Since I don't travel much, I like coming into the office to see everyone, but it's great to have that flexibility when necessary! Like you, I actually get a ton of work done when working from home!

I want those drapes for MY house!!! NYC is supposed to get a snow storm tomorrow, so after J being away for work this week, I hope we just get to hibernate and hang out and relax :)

Working from home is key. Makes life so much more enjoyable! I'll be in DC this weekend, plans with RJ's friends tonight, a couple of gym classes and dinner with my parents tomorrow! Have a great weekend!

LOVE those curtains, and I love how they'll be able to stay with the baby as he or she grows up!! Working from home even 1 day a week is such a blessing, and I can imagine being pregnant even more so. Will you be able to keep that after baby arrives?

LOVE the curtains! They actually match the comforter in our master bedroom. I'm obsessed with navy too.

So nice that you can work from home one day a week! I have two days during the week that I do my property visits....which really means sleeping in, lounging while drinking my coffee, checking emails from my pj's, and eventually making it to the island around lunch time. I LOVE it. :)

Those curtains are amazing! I have the matching duvet, and love it!

Love your curtains! Navy is going to be so fun. I'm having such a hard time picking out curtains - but I feel like they are such a big part of the nursery. Who knew it would be such a hard choice? haha Happy Weekend!
