Five on Friday!

Linking up with ChristinaDarciApril, and Natasha and you should too!  My five are totally random today, so be prepared :)

ONE.  We are having a yard sale today and tomorrow.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed for no rain!  I can't wait to get rid of all the stuff that has been piling up in our garage for the past year.  Anything that doesn't sell is getting donated and then we can clean/organize the garage.  Yay!

TWO.  Other than the yard sale, we don't really have any plans for the weekend and I'm pretty happy about it.  It's been a little chilly here (highs in the upper 40's yesterday and mid 50s today), so we probably won't be doing any yard work.  Guess that means I'll have to tackle some indoor projects.  After seeing this amazing office/craft storage on IHeart Organizing yesterday, I'm determined to get our office organized and pretty!

THREE.  We are going to Cincinnati for Memorial Day weekend and I'm pretty excited about it.  We will be going to a Reds baseball game, enjoying A Taste of Cincinnati, spending a little time at the casino, maybe heading to the zoo, and of course eating some delicious food.  Do you have any fun plans for Memorial Day weekend?

FOUR.  My cousin makes cakes/cupcakes and they are amazing!  She did our Detroit Tigers groom's cake for our wedding as surprise.  If you live in Louisiana, should definitely check her out.  Click HERE to see all of her awesome creations!  And trust me, everything tastes just as good as they look :)  Here are some of her adorable creations:


FIVE.  My sister and I signed up for the local Color Run in August.  I've never done the Color Run before, but I hear it's fun, so I'm excited to do it for the first time!

Hope you have a great weekend!


  1. We 100% need to organize our office as well. It is a mess...I have to close the door because I don't do well with messes!

    Yay for a Cincinnati weekend. I absolutely love Taste of Cincinnati!

  2. Those cakes look amazing!! Im attempting a baseball cake this weekend I can only hope it turns out half as good as hers!

  3. That office and those cupcakes!!!
    My daughter would love that softball cake :) Good luck with your yard sale!

  4. Oh WOW officially inspired to organize!! that is amazing!

  5. Yay for yard sales! I love doing them because it feels so nice to unload a bunch of stuff and make a couple extra bucks. We haven't had one for several years, though, but now you have me thinking about planning one. :) I hope yours goes really well!!
    Have an awesome weekend Ericka!

    xo Always, Abby

  7. Those cupcakes are amazing! Your cousin is so talented! I need to start following IHeart. I've got way too many areas in my house that need some attention! Hope your yard sale went well! Have a great weekend and check out the giveaway on my blog!
