It's Finally Friday!

Woo hoo! As you can see I have a little surprise for everyone on this fine Friday!

 How do you like my new design?!! I for one, am totally 100% in L-O-V-E with this beautiful new look. And I have the lovely Aubrey from The Kinch Life Designs to thank for creating a look that is soft, feminine, and welcoming using some colors that I loved but weren't sure would look good together. But Aubrey is amazing and she made them work very nicely together!

 So Aubrey, THANK YOU!! You are so talented and I just love what you created! :) 

 Now on to the goods for today! It's Friday so of course I'm sharing my top five favorites from this week with Lauren over at From My Grey Desk:

1. My new design is def my number one favorite thing from the week! :)

2. I chopped off my hair on Friday!
Oh and bought this cute new top from Target.
Love me some mint and silver.

3. Lace and Leopard are now two of my favorite combos.
This outfit will definitely be repeated.



4.  Jordan, her mom, and I went had super yummy dinner at the Trails End Restaurant last night!
Nothing beats good food and good friends.


5. I finished The Night Circus this week and it has officially made it's way onto my all time favorite books list.  


It's so good, I'm linking up with Heather and Katie for their Book Club Friday to share with everyone! :)

Here's the synopsis:
The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is calledLe Cirque des RĂªves, and it is only open at night.
But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway: a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them both, this is a game in which only one can be left standing. Despite the high stakes, Celia and Marco soon tumble headfirst into love, setting off a domino effect of dangerous consequences, and leaving the lives of everyone, from the performers to the patrons, hanging in the balance.
My thoughts:
The writing it amazing, the characters are endearing, and now all I want to do is run away and join the circus. Read it friends.  You won't be disappointed you did. :)



Yep, pretty sweet week if you ask me! :)
Now I'm gonna go stare are my new design some more.  
Hope you all have a great weekend.
