Five on Friday!

Geez is it Friday already? I didn't even realize it was Friday until I looked at my calendar this morning. Someone has been in a fog all week!

So today is VALENTINE'S DAY! 
Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays.
I just love all the pink and red and hearts and love all around!
Jesse and I chose not to go out to a fancy dinner this year. It's always such a hassle, super expensive, and we leave and end up going through the Taco Bell drive through because we didn't get enough food (don't lie, we've all done it).

So this year we are staying in and eating Chinese and watching Netflix.
Nothing really different than our typical Friday night, but we're stepping it up a notch and will be eating on our fine china. Yes, our fine china that we have only opened up one time the whole almost 3 years we've been married. We're super fancy. Ha! We just love being silly with the whole thing. We went all out the first couple of years we were together, but now it's just fun.

We had crazy amounts of snow here on Wednesday night. I love looking at the snow, but I absolutely hate driving in it, playing in it, being out in it, period. Which is really difficult when you have a dog who absolutely LOVES it and whines at the door until you take him out to play.

Our peek out of our back porch yesterday morning.

Ayers Hall on Wednesday night. Our local news station posted this the other night and I just loved it so much. I love my alma mater! *Go Vols*

I have an obsession with mugs. Tea cups, coffee mugs, travel coffee cups... whatever. I love them all. Jesse told me he is putting me on coffee mug restriction, but that didn't stop him from buying me this gorgeous "With a Twist" tea cup from Anthropologie. Good job honey!

Like I said before, Jesse and I are starting to be silly with our Valentine's. I made him this card after I found a dime laying on the ground outside Target. It's a joke between us that whenever Jesse sees any kind of change on the ground... he's picking it up and putting it in his pocket. I'm the complete opposite. So he was surprised when I told him I found the dime on the ground. Plus he loved the little witty rap ;)

I just started this book the other night and I was bawling within the first 10 pages. Every Nicholas Sparks book makes me cry like a baby, but not that quickly! Can't wait to get through it. 

I went through some of our wedding pictures last night and I thought I would share this one. It's one of my favorites and it reminds me how much our wedding day was the best day of my life!

Well that's it for me! I have to finish up some crochet orders and get some school work done before we have our lazy Valentine's date tonight. How are you spending your Valentine's Day? Staying in/going out? Not celebrating at all? Regardless of your plans, I hope you all have a great weekend in whatever you do! :)

I'll leave you with a little Valentine's Day message from Charlie...



  1. I love your homemade Valentine! Too cute! I wish the snow would have stuck around longer, it was all practically gone by the time I got home from ATL last night.

  2. I love your blog Ashley! It puts mine to shame! I wanted to say congratulations on eating on the china. I have never eaten on mine.....not even once! I should, cause I love it.
