Five on Friday: {August 14, 2015}



Happy Friday Gals! This quote could not be more true - I've been tapping into my creative juices this week and it's left me all sorts of inspired. And to top it off, I am so, so excited for the weekend because the gals are reunited tonight - more on that below, so let's jump right in to my five favorites of the week!!!

 
The Printable Gal

As I mentioned above, I've been feeling all sorts of creative this week because I've been focused on giving some much needed love to my Etsy shop, The Printable Gal. I've got lots of great new products in the works and was so excited to launch my printable and glitzy straws this week! I was honored to provide a set of both to one our favorite bloggers and bride-to-be, Emelia, so be sure to check out her shower recap, and awesome sangria recipe - and see if you can spot the straws! And as a new business, I'm of course trying to build up my social media, so if anyone is looking for a daily dose of paper porn - feel free to follow The Printable Gal on Instagram!

Concert Gals

Tonight can't come soon enough because the gals are headed to a concert (along with T and GG) - and not just any concert, O.A.R.!! I've mentioned a couple times what a crazy fan I am, and GG and I try to see them any (and every!) time they are in town, but tonight's concert is extra special because this is the first time B is being dragged coming too! I've been obsessed with O.A.R. since college but sadly that love has not rubbed off on B - it's not that she doesn't like them, she just hasn't given them a chance yet (like most readers here, I suspect - haha!).. but all that is about to change tonight! They are such an amazing band live, plus it's a gal filled night, so it's pretty much a sure thing that it's going to be a great time. Warning - be prepared for picture and tweet overload tonight, as is usually the case when we get together!


Happy Birthday Pop Pop!




This past weekend we celebrated my grandfather (aka - Pop Pop)'s 95th birthday! 95 is a milestone in its own right, but on top of that, he had suffered some health issues earlier this year, and is steadily getting better day by day, so my whole family was so excited to get together and celebrate! It was a great party, and we even had family fly in from Florida that I haven't seen in years, so it really was a fantastic day. 

And of course, I couldn't resist crafting up a set of custom Printable Gal straws - but seriously, has 95 ever looked so good?!


Favorite Polish of the Week
My latest mani obsession has been this gorgeous periwinkle shade, Ah, Oui by Rescue Beauty Lounge. The polish is a jelly so it applies beautifully and I mean, that color! I literally took the polish off of my toes, and then promptly applied to my fingers - it's the perfect summer color!

Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp


So Netflix has been having a real moment in the M household recently. This past Sunday we found ourselves with nothing on the agenda, and after partying up with Pop Pop, we were excited to have a lazy day. After browsing Netflix, we decided to give the tv reboot of Wet Hot American Summer a go. We had remembered loving the cult classic movie from back in the day, so we were excited to check out this tv prequel. It was seriously 100% nonsense and so, so funny! The best part is that the whole original cast is back reprising their roles, which is fun in itself since it's a bunch of 40 year olds playing teens. Seriously, if you are a fan of the movie, you need to check out this 8 episode prequel - and even if you haven't seen the movie, it's only 8 eps.. but seriously.. give the movie a go also, it's hilarious!

What does everyone else have going on this weekend?!




Cheers to April, AmandaJennieKarliClare, Rebecca, Katie, Heather, and Tif for hosting today's link-ups!

    1. Ahh - so excited to find another OAR fan!! And you shouldn't definitely try to see them again, if they are ever in town, though just a warning - it always makes me feel pretty old since I'm clearly NOT in college anymore..haha!
