Friday Five

FF

Happy Friday! After an on-the-go week, I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend. A few weeks ago I started a new job as a copy editor at Caesars Entertainment, which I am loving! On Tuesday we took a work field trip to The LINQ with a plan to see Grumpy Cat at Kitson and ride the High Roller. Unfortunately the line was ridiculously long to see the cultural phenomenon that is Grumpy Cat, but I was able to ride the 550-foot-tall observation wheel. We went right at sunset and I loved seeing the amazing views of the Strip and surrounding valley. Even though it wouldn’t be my first pick of places to live, Vegas definitely does have its perks.

I’ve decided to make my “Friday Five” posts into a series, so every week I will post a few highlights from the week. Hope everyone has a great weekend :)

Friday Five

Wahoo it’s almost the weekend! I think I actually enjoy Friday more than the weekend itself because you are in a relaxed, excited mindset knowing that you have two days of freedom ahead of you. Plus, casual Friday dress codes allow for some flexibility with your fashion decisions. I love being able to wear jeans instead of a skirt or dress pants! To start off a fun-filled weekend, I decided to share five of my favorite photos from the week.

Save the Date Inspiration

Now that we have officially set the date, I’ve started the process of picking out our save the date cards and invitations. Since our wedding will be at a farm with rustic decor, I want our save the dates to match the theme of our ceremony and reception as they will be the first impression of our special day. I envision something simple, elegant and country chic. Minted and Wedding Paper Divas have some adorable postcards (pictured below) that fit with the look we are going for. Even though we have more than a year until we say “I do,” I’m so excited to start planning!

“I Do” Take the Blog…

After a busy spring, I vow to be better about posting on Treats + Trends. I have so many recipes and DIY projects saved up that I want to share – my favorite being these peanut butter cookie dough Oreos!

I’ll start off with some exciting news… I’m engaged! It’s no surprise that I love chocolate, so Rob couldn’t have proposed in a more perfect way. Hope y’all don’t mind quite a few wedding posts. Let’s just say I have spent a lot of time on Pinterest this past week and have been pin-spired to get crafty! Yes, there will be Mason jars, cupcakes and cowboy boots.
