high five for friday

friday. it’s here. 
here’s five of my favorite things from this past week:
1. my best friend was here last weekend. it was so good to hang out, even if it was for less than 2 days.
before we went to the duke game on saturday!

2. i added a left sidebar to the blog so it’s got a bit of a different look…and i love it! 
3. i have a break between classes on tuesday/thursday so i decided to get lunch and read my latest book on my iPad. i kinda loved having the time to myself.
4. i went to a new college small group this week and really liked it. i’m thankful for a God who knows exactly what i need and when i need it.
5. i’m kinda obsessed with this duvet cover from urban outfitters and just may have to buy it. i could use a little makeover in my room. my ripped (thanks to my cats) duvet cover just isn’t cutting it anymore.
you can find it here.
what have been your five favorite things from this week?

    I love that UO duvet! I've seen their chevron rug floating around all over the internet but not the duvet. Hope you have a great weekend!

    Yay for BFF time. I don't get to hang with mine very often (LOVE distance) but I cherish every second that I do!
    Love the sidebar, as you know πŸ™‚
    God is incredible – love the fact that he knows us insides and out!
    BUY that duvet so I can live through you – so pretty!

    AND what book are you reading now that Hunger Games is finished?!

    Happy Friday, lovely!

    Great duvet! You can only rearrange furniture so many times before you break down and give the room a REAL makeover. I say do it!

    Lauren, you won my heart over as soon as I saw the mac & cheese! And the duvet cover is very FMGD. I think of FMGD every time I see chevron (which is often these days). Happy Friday!

    Lauren, has anyone else not been able to embed your button? Is it ok that I just link to your site instead? I use wordpress, and it had been working, and suddenly I can't embed. Frustrating!

    LOVE that duvet cover so much. And I'm glad you found a small group. Praying you make awesome, godly connections!

    This duvet looks incredible! I'm putting that on my wish list also. I got a beautiful creamy white Sheridan duvet as a wedding gift and my cat got his little claws into and now it looks.. shabby chic I guess. Ha.
