one // Last weekend, some friends and I pulled off a surprise baby shower/birthday party for our friend Sally. We had it at the Wilmington Tea Room and it was perfect. I’ll be sharing more about it soon, but here’s a quick peek:
two // Jeff and I got to see Chatham County Line in concert last weekend as well! They are phenomenal! I had listened to some of their stuff and liked it, but after seeing them in person, I am a HUGE fan!
three // I have been redoing my jewelry area and cleaned out a TON of my jewelry! I’ve still got a few things to do before the project is complete, but I cannot wait to reveal it to y’all soon!
four // My sister found this old diary of mine from elementary school and this was one of the first entries. It made Jeff and me laugh a lot because I was ALWAYS in trouble. One of my neighbors even nicknamed me “Sophi ‘Grounded Again’ Chopelas.” Chopelas is my maiden name just in case you were wondering
five // On Wednesday, some girlfriends and I went to Ladies’ Night at The Little Dipper. They offer cheese and chocolate fondue for only $9 on ladies’ night, so it’s such a great deal! And they have a PUMPKIN SANGRIA right now that is to die for! It was so nice to enjoy some girl talk and not count calories for a night!
Now I am looking forward to a quiet weekend at home. I don’t have any plans as of yet and I kind of hope it stays that way!
Hi friends! I am sssoooo glad it’s Friday. I am so tired! Last night was the first night I got home before 10pm this week. If you want to see what I’ve been up to, head over to my Instagram. But for my Friday Five this week, I am sharing some of my favorite Buzzfeeds/videos/links/whatever-you-want-to-call-them that made me laugh during this crazy busy week.
ONE // If you’re new around here, I am obsessed with Gilmore Girls, so this Buzzfeed list made my day! Oy with the poodles already!
TWO //I would just cry.
THREE // Because every single one of these is true.
FOUR // Because every single one of these is also true. Especially the chewing… oh the chewing…
Happy Friday, friends! I don’t really have a fun week to review, so just thought I’d share five things I’m thankful for:
one // It has been a very quiet week for me, which I’m actually really grateful for. Last week was so busy— I seriously did not get home before 9pm one night last week. Makes for a boring week on Instagram but refreshing for me.
two // I’m pretty sure every blogger goes through this, but sometimes I wonder if anyone reads this blog or if it’s really worth the time because there are so many other, better bloggers out there. But then I get a text or a Facebook message from someone telling me how much they enjoy reading it. I even had someone message me the other day and tell me they have Hashimoto’s disease and they were so happy to find someone else who understood what they were going through. It reminded me of exactly why I started this blog in the first place.
three // This kind of goes along with #2, but I am thankful for Hashimoto’s disease. I won’t lie to you and say there aren’t many times where I wish I didn’t have this disease and that I want things to be easier, but I also know things could be a lot worse. Plus, I wouldn’t have started this blog or met some of the people that I have if it wasn’t for that disease.
four // Cooler temps! It has really been feeling like fall this week and I am relishing every second of it!
