On Fridays we have a little extra fun at {aka}|design – because we share five random things from our week: design inspiration, amazing etsy shops, fun family stuff. Sometimes we just share things that were amusing. In any case, Friday Five it is!

{If you’re stopping by from Southern Hospitality – we’re thrilled you’re here - thank you so much for visiting us!!!}

1. Dean and I celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary last weekend. My sister and her hubby took the kids from Friday until Sunday (!!) and we had the house to ourselves. We spent a great deal of time just being together – and it was FABULOUS! We went for a long walk down by the lake, we went out for lunch, we danced, we laughed, we prayed. I cannot even begin to express how incredible it was to spend so much uninterrupted time enjoying each other’s company.

2. Did y’all see Miss Mustard Seed’s pinwheel tutorial? LOVE! I attempted to make a couple myself, they’re a little tricky. But I think with a bit of practice I may just have to fill a few jars or vases with these pretty little pinwheels!

4. I’m thinking of getting these for Dean’s lunch box. Do any of you have any experience with reusable snack and sandwich bags?

5. We’re super excited to have some of the guys (& their wives) from Dean’s baseball team over for a BBQ tonight! Have I mentioned that we LOVE to have people over?


What about you – what have you been up to this week? What have you got planned for this weekend? Any milestones or snack wrappers to discuss?!

P.S. As I mentioned, Rhoda was so sweet to feature our house on her blog today! Thank you Rhoda!!!
