five on friday


here's my five on friday, y'all.


1.  when i first read about the 19 year old german shepherd, schoep, and his owner. . . my heart instantly melted.  leave it to a story about a man and his dog to get my eyes to well up with tears.  gets me everytime.  sometimes, words can't even describe the connection between people and their best animal friends.

 2.  if you've known me for more than five minutes, you are probably aware of my obsession with cute dishtowels.  i picked these three up this week (ON SALE) at sur la table.  i seriously can't get over how cute the macaron towel is!

  3.  in an attempt to acquire things for our wedding way ahead of schedule (i'm excited.  can't help it), i put in a bid on ebay for 47 antique handkerchiefs. . . and won!  i was in awe when i received the package in the mail.  some of them still were in their original packaging, and have come from places all across the world, like japan, france, and ireland.  i pulled out a few of my favorites (^^above).  i'm already suffering from separation anxiety at the thought of giving these away as favors.

4.  i love when i order things from sephora, and they send me really great free samples in really cute packaging.  thanks sephora!

5.  finally, (yes, the video is kinda weird) but  how awesome is this song?


happy friday everybody!
