not just any Friday

Spring break begins today at 12:30.  Reason # 4762 why I love my job... I get to reap the benefits of awesome random holidays and breaks, my husband gets rather jealous ;)

I am headed back 'home' tonight for some time with family and friends.  I am very excited to relax, sleep in, and most importantly, stuff my face with Portillo's and Giordano's.  If you are from the Chicago area, you would understand the excitement of not having these on a monthly basis.


Before I get too excited about break, here are 5 of my favorite things from this week:

1. As I mentioned yesterday, our tiling step in the shower is D.O.N.E.! Can you sense my excitement?

2. We cut the grass for the first time this season and it's looking great. Our hard work the past two years is paying off with a fuller, more green yard.

3. Breakfast for dinner. Yum!

4. My fun nails. Perfect for spring break.

5. Never a dull moment with 'The Murph Man'. He will find a way to lay on the fleece blanket, even if it's behind the couch cushions. This is how I found him when I walked into the family room.

Looking forward to a relaxing week off. Happy Friday!

xo, Erin


  1. I love the tile in your bathroom. It is so pretty.

  2. If you could go back in time - would you redo the shower on your own or hire a pro? Just curious, we're saying out the options/cost/time to redo our own shower. Thanks!

  3. Murph! He's just wondering where his buddy Stan is...

  4. everyone of your pictures is so cute!! your shower and yard both look AMAZING and your puppy is SO cute!!

  5. Aw, Murphy! My dog sleeps in the most bizarre places. Gotta love dogs!

    Happy weekend, Erin!


  6. Fresh cut grass is one of the best smells in the world! And breakfast for dinner? Who DOESN'T like that? (A crazy person, that's who.)

    I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
