Five on Friday

Happy Friday y'all!! Today I am sharing what has made my week fabulous from almond butter to Mumford and Sons. 

1. Today marks day 6 on my summer detox challenge. My savior on this detox has been nut butter. I picked up Trader Joe's Almond Butter last Sunday and have been eating some every day. I have it on just about everything to ensure I am getting enough protein. This is my first time trying raw and it is delicious. Buying raw is really important because roasting of the nuts kills a lot of the nutrients that make nuts so good for you. 
2. After searching all summer for a chalkboard to go in our kitchen nook. I finally found a perfect frame at World Market. I am so excited to start decorating it with cute phrases for each season.

3. I am obsessed with the new Mumford and Sons video. If you have not seen it please check it out! Here is a great explanation of what makes it so great! (The video link is not playing nice with blogger so you can watch it here.)

 4. School starts back in two weeks and I have made it a goal to decorate my office. My home school will be at a Middle School this year so I am unsure of what kind of office space I will have. It could range from a broom closet (no really) to an individual office. Most likely, it will be a shared space with the speech therapist or occupational therapist. Since I don't know my space yet, I have not bout many decorations. That does not keep me from  finding lots of cute inspiration!

I love the organization.

I am loving the plants and printed backdrop.

Perfect for collecting random notes and to do lists.

5. I am in love with the bracelets from Bourbon and Bowties. They are a small southern company that handcrafts unique bracelets. The bracelets feature semiprecious stones, geodes, coral, turquoise and opal  all wrapped with gold wire. Unfortunately, since are still a small company so they are constantly selling out of their beautiful baubles. I am trying to find an excuse to invest in these beautiful bracelets. I am thinking a back to school gift for myself!  You can check them out on Facebook to find a local store near you. They are also sold online here .

Pictures from their Facebook page. 

What are you loving this Friday?

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! I am planning to soak up the sun and spend some quality time with friends.

  4. I bought a chalkboard earlier this Summer and have given up on finding the perfect frame. I am just going to take it to Hobby Lobby and get it framed. So, you did great finding such a cute frame. Also, love those stacked bracelets. I am a teacher, so I know that you really aren't kidding about the broom closet.
    P.S. I am a new follower via finding you on the link-up. :)
