Friday Five

One. Mumford and Sons. Last night Joe and I went with a group of friends to see Mumford and Sons at Walnut Creek Amphitheater. It was a great night and so much fun listening to them live. We hardly ever go to music concerts and want to start trying more.


Two. DIY Coasters. I stumbled across these on Facebook (a Buzzfeed article surprisingly!) and became immediately obsessed.  These are pennies compared to buying a set from a store like Anthropologie. The stones are $5 apiece compared to almost $100 for a set of four. I know what I am doing my first week off of work! I've listed out everything you need: tutorial , stones, felt and gilding liquid.

Three. Dutch Crown Braid. I tried this out yesterday to keep my hair off my neck during the concert. This tutorial was a huge help. I still need to practice a bit more but loving it as an alternative to a messy bun. 

Four. Moving... Soon! We are currently at the end of due diligence for our new home in Raleigh. We will not be moving until mid-July. But I am excited to close the apartment chapter in our lives and start a new one in our forever home! 

Five. Summer Break.  Today is our last workday and then I'm off work for the summer. I am looking forward to sleeping in and mid-day runs. 

What are your plans this weekend? Any concert favorites I should add to my list?

  7. Ah the coasters look like a fun project, good luck with them, can't wait to see your results! wow mid-july move in for your new home. SO CLOSE yet SO FAR. I bet this next month will drag by. I know the feeling about apartment living, we aren't even near close to being done with our place and I can't stop thinking about getting out!!! Glad you enjoyed the concert I heard about it but I didn't get tickets ! Tonight we are going to a movie in Downtown to see outside (Back to the Future), I'm SO excited lol
