high five for friday

1. wore my favorite giraffe print skirt (from madewell, currently unavailable) and some festive nails to a holiday party.
2. cat-themed gifts are definitely the best kind.
3. my roommate and i thought it would be a great idea to take awkward holiday pictures. this is just one of the little gems we captured.
4. it felt like fall yesterday! although, we’re expecting 70’s again this weekend…which is also kind of hard to complain about.
5. snuggles.

how was your week? link up below and tell me about it!

  9. Cute! I've followed along with your Friday posts for a while, but am joining in the fun for the first time. I've been reassessing my blogging outlook, and this is the perfect link-up. I look forward to many more weeks to come!

    I'm not sure how awkward that picture is because I actually think it's a really cute pic! Haha you guys are adorable!

  12. Yoga AND kittens?! Oh, my. That's right up my alley. 🙂

    I feel obligated to remark that not only is your awkward holiday photo still beautiful but that the best part is how you two are posing.

    Happy weekend, Lauren!

    Love to see you and your roomie are in the Cmas spirit with an akward photo and all!! Just sucks when you share your home with a roomie who isn't always the most festive one!

    Happy Friday love!

    Hi Lauren, I have been following Kate for a few years now and have just recently found your blog. I really enjoy reading it. I have started taking part in your High Five for Friday and I was wondering how you put the numbers on the photos? Is it a font that you use or a pic or something else?
    Thanks Lynne
