Friday 5

Linking up with Natasha this week!

This week's 5 for Friday is going to be totally random, because that's just about the perfect word to describe how I'm feeling now. I'm not sure what it is about this week, but my brain feels scrambled. Thank goodness it's Friday, so all is well in the world, even if I can't manage to focus on anything for more than a 7 minute time span... Here's what I'm loving this week.

1. Buzzfeed. 

I'm always loving Buzzfeed. It's hilarious and usually spot on. Two of my favorite recent finds on the site are "27 Everyday Decisions that Twentysomethings Are Really Bad At Making".

They should add "How to capitalize a title to that list... Anyway, it's histerical, and after I showed to to my best friend Amanda she reported it was "stupid acurate" which pretty much sums it up. If you weren't guilty of at least a few of these things once upon a time, we probably couldn't be friends. I know personally, there are about 5 things on this list I can't seem to master. Specifically numbers 2, 6, 10, 19, and 25. Which ones are you still guilty of?

2. Budgeting

This is a weird thing to be excited about, but for me it's a pretty big deal. Since graduating college (and moving on from the financial methods on the above list) I've always had and maintained some semblance of a budget, but never one that involved a spreadsheet or taking out cash and cutting myself off when I ran out of funds in a particular category. That is the type of situation I'm going to start September 1. I want to get serious about saving and eliminating the little bit of credit card debt I have left, and now seems to be the time. What are your budgeting tips?

3. Fall TV

The decent of fall TV to make room for all the shows that actually involve a plot cannot come soon enough. Don't get me wrong. I love a good Reality TV binge, but I think I've had about all I can take for one summer. Bring on the Modern Family, The Middle, Law and Order SVU, Mad Man, Nurse Jackie, etc, etc. I could really go on all day. What shows are you ready to have back in exchange for reruns and bad mini series?

4. Paint

We haven't gotten any closer to deciding on a paint color, but we're making progress. There are just one or two more samples I want to try, then we will just have to decide whether or not the laundry room and foyer will match the family room or kitchen and dining room, and we'll be in business. I was sold on the navy family room, then started getting cold feet. I think I'm going to go through with it in the end. Here are some of the pins I'm hoping our color will turn out similar to. 

We have a lot of neutral furniture and decor, and have large windows that get a ton of light, so I think it may turn out pretty fab. You check out my home board to see some other options we've been considering.

5. Wedding Pictures

Our amazing photographer called to let us know our wedding album is in! I cannot wait to pick it up on Sunday. I posted a few discombobulated wedding recaps here, but in honor of the album, here are some of my favorite professional shots from the day.

Happy Friday people!

Your wedding pictures are so pretty! And I definitely do a ton of those "everyday decisions" saving $ being a big one. Every time I tell myself I'm going to save money it never fails I end up going shopping. It's almost like I need to quit saying it and just do it and it'll happen!
