Five on Friday

Happy Friday everyone! Whoa this week went by crazy fast! We have another busy weekend coming up because Mark's mom and brother, Chase, will be in town. We have dinner tonight with his aunt and uncle and then a very special something tomorrow! Woot woot! The picture below basically describes me every weekend. I want to do a million things but at the same time I want to park my booty on the couch and veg out. I'm soaking up all these weekends with Mark because he will be out of town for most of October. I hope you all have a great day!

One- Disneyland!!!!

From our trip in June

We are heading to Disneyland tomorrow and I can't wait! I LOVE Disneyland! Seriously, how can you have a bad day when you're there? Mark and I went for the first time together in June so I'm THRILLED that we are able to go again so soon! Lauren (my mother in law) also loves Disneyland so I'm glad that we are able to take her while she is in town. Plus, the best part is that it will be decorated for Halloween! YAY! I made a reservation for dinner on the California Adventure side and we plan on eating lunch in Disneyland. I can't wait to ride Indiana Jones, and the new Cars ride. Ahh I'm geeking out right now!

Two- New Dresses

Dress here |  #1  |  #2  |  #3 
I mentioned in my weekend recap that I found a dress for an event we have next weekend and also my friend's wedding. I love that it's not tight-fitting but also gives me a shape. The flare and swing of the dress adds a fun element and I love the floral print. This is definitely out of my comfort zone because of the color and print but that's what drew me to it. I'm usually a neutrals kind of girl. I'm planning on pairing it with black heels and some fun bracelets. Target has some super cute black heels so I'm going to try and find them in store on Sunday. Option #3 is not something I would normally choose but I think they would be super cute with the dress. Which are your favorites??

I bought this dress from Old Navy during their super cash sale. I had $20 in super cash and wanted to spend it before it expired. I love the material of this swing dress and I think it's a great transitional piece for fall. I was a little worried that it would make me appear larger than I am but I think it still gives me a shape. Anyone who knows me can testify to the fact that I LOVE the whole relaxed fit look. I pretty much repel form-fitting clothes lol. The dress was on sale for $15 when I bought it and I saw that it's now back to the regular price of $29.

Three- Wish List

If you haven't guessed already I love clothes and I LOVE to shop. I have been on the hunt for the perfect green utility vest. I've seen a few vests that other bloggers have posted but I don't want to spend too much on this trendy item. I love that the one above synchs at the waist to provide some shape.  I purchased a green utility jacket last year from Old Navy and I wore it a ton. The military green color is such an easy color to pair things with and I especially love to wear it with black and white stripes. 

Four- A Praying Life

Buy it here

I recently ordered this book from Amazon after hearing my friend Heidi speak about it during devotionals. My prayer life hasn't always been the strongest and I find myself at a lost for what to say or even pleading/ bargaining with God at times. I manage to find time to pray everyday but I don't always feel connected to God while in prayer. The parts of the book Heidi shared left me intrigued and wanting to read more. I quickly ordered it from Amazon and it was on my doorstep on Wednesday. Gotta love Amazon Prime! I'll update you guys on my thoughts soon!

Five- The Light Between Oceans

I finally finished The Light Between Oceans this week. I've wanted to read this book for so long and even tried to get our book club to read it almost a year ago. My friend Emily brought it to me a couple weeks ago and I started it immediately. This book was hard to get through, which I feel like has been a common theme of all the books I've been reading lately. I hunkered down this week and read for several hours to finish it. I ended up really liking the story, despite the constant heartbreak present in each part of the book. **Spoiler alert: the fact that Isabel had three miscarriages on her own made me so sad. Not only was she losing a child but she was on an island away from any kind of doctor or hospital. Then when a child seems to fall in their laps they make a decision that will forever change their lives. I like how it ended but I found myself irritated through half of the book. Do you guys ever read books that make you feel that way?

As always I'm linking up with AprilNatashaChristinaKarliErikaNarci, and Andrea :) Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
