Friday Favorites

Happy Friday Everyone!!! 
The weekend is finally here!!! I am kicking off the excitement with another link-up of Friday Favorites with some of my favorite bloggers. Check out Andrea's blog called MomfessionalsErika's blog called A Little Bit of Everything, and Narci's blog called Grace and Love. Their blogs are so inspiring and they are a must read! 

1. Spring handbags!!!!

A few months ago I blogged all about the perfect spring handbags.

Every beautiful bag you could ever imagine and more! I still love my blue bag more than anything but since starting my new job I needed something a little bigger to lug around my laptop and other work materials. My grandparents are absolute gems and hooked me up with the perfect briefcase as a graduation present.

I love how much I can fit in this cross body briefcase by Coach. It's nice and spacey without being to big and bulky.

Now this pink jewel of a bag is the queen of all briefcases. Look how adorable and simplistic this briefcase is. If you want to look like you belong on Legally Blonde than you need to purchase this bag and rock it out in the workforce.

I am secretly swooning over this brown vintage briefcase. Partially because its color is titled espresso and it's hard not to love anything somewhat related to coffee, and partially because look at how dang sleek this bag is. Just picture yourself prancing into the office with this thing resting on your shoulder.. you would be turning heads and dropping jaws! 

2. All of the adorable chairs at Target! 

I am telling you people, Target is the place to go! They always have wonderful sales going on and right now they have 10% off select chairs! Check out some of these beauts! 

I think this tufted upholstered arm chair belongs in my living room. I am swooning over how adorable it is. I just know it has to be equally as comfy! 

For some reason this crazy chair has completely stolen my attention. I just see it being the perfect accent chair in a little girls bedroom or a fancy, fun home office workspace! Maybe I can convince my better half that we can add this pretty thing into the living room mix too! ;)

Okay, now realistically, this may be the chair that wanders its way into my life. I think the future hubby would be content with a recliner and as far as recliners go, this little guy is pretty cute! 

#3. My Family

I really hit the jackpot in the family department. I am blessed way beyond measure with the most supportive and loving family members.
Last week my parents and grandparents put all of their effort and energy into helping me pack up my life as I once new it and lug all my belongings five hours to Southwestern Indiana. Talk about saints. These people are the most selfless people I have ever met. These people are my favorites.

They provide me with so much laughter and joy! Never a dull moment with these lovely people!

#4. Our Engagement photos

If you are searching for an engagement/wedding photographer near Fort Wayne, Indiana you have to seek out Behind the Lens Photography. We had an absolute blast shooting our photos, even at sunrise! Here are a few of our favorites we just recently got back! 

Happy Friday, Everyone! Have a blessed and fun-filled weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Thankful Thursday

My sweet bestie Addie and I are kicking off our Thursday with lots of thankfulness! 
This past week has been a complete whirlwind for me. I graduated from college, moved into my very first apartment and started my first ever real full-time job. Just a tad overwhelming to say the least. Despite all of the chaos I can't help but sit back and reflect on all I have to be thankful for. 

Just as our "thankful Thursday" logo says the Bible tells us to give thanks in all circumstances for this is God's will for us. In my eyes, truer words have never been spoken. No matter how hard a situation may be, how bad the struggles we are going through are, whether we just won a million dollars on a lottery ticket or we just scored a huge bonus at our job, there is always always something to be thankful for. 

With that being said, here are the things that I am extra thankful for this week!

1. How much support, encouragement and love I felt throughout my college experience from my family. They truly pushed me to be the best student I could be and I don't think I would have made it through college without each and everyone of them! 

2. My wonderful Ann Tweedale sisters. Love them more than anything.

3. My apartment! A place I can officially call my own.  

4. A wonderful second family that I officially get to join in October. Blessed beyond measure for all of my in-laws and the love and joy that add to my life. 

5. My grandparents and parents for all they have done to help make my life transitions go smoothly. They truly have been my rock and support through all of these big changes recently.

These are just a few! What are you thankful for this week?
