high five for friday

1. an evening walk with my sister. oh, and we planned happened to match.

2. making homemade mac & cheese for dinner. nothing better. except maybe the mac  
    & cheese from noodles and co. that stuff is good.

3. still obsessed with my new journals from target. they’re very kate spade-esque.

4. the view at the lake last night. so pretty.

5. my little buddy. he has to have his fill of cuddle time every day.

    My Mac and cheese obsession is ridiculous! I'm kind of a pasta aficionado 🙂

    Look at all those link ups! All of your Target finds have me wishing that I went there more often. They are in my area, but out of the way. Happy weekend to you!

    Your 5 are so easy going. My 5 would be much more hecktic. I like yours esp the sunset + kitty time.

    I just made the comment above. If you click on the "Renae" it goes to NOWHERE-VILLE. I have a blog and a link and that was really frustrating to see. I did it from my smartphone, that is, excuse me, not always that 'smart'! Sorry to bother you but just wanted to clarify that I really am real. I also love you BLOG! + I would love to participate in your high 5 for 5. It is so darling and informative, etc. etc. ok?

    I'm completely in love with those journals – but can't find them at the Target by my house…it was a sad day. I found your blog today through your sisters, and am now in love with both! Which also means today is my first time linking up! Thanks so much for hosting!

    I'm such a sucker for a new journal! I love your new ones! That target aisle with all the cute little journals is always soooooo tempting! I just got two new ones…. one that is small and that i use for my weight log and the other for all the notes i take in church! Both are black and white! Love your colorful ones!
