5 Things Friday + Last Day for Uncommon Goods Giveaway!

Thank goodness it is Friday! I don't think I've been this excited to wrap up a work week since 2008.  Now I get to get my house in order for 30 guests at our annual Fry-Day party (think Texas State Fair food assembled by amateurs in the backyard) and do some work on our registry for Baby Cardigan.

While I start tackling my To Do list, here are five things worth sharing on the internet:

1. I just purchased this pillow/cover from Society 6 and it is officially the jumping off point for Baby Cardigan's nursery, color-wise.  I'm going for a vaguely midentury-esque room with fun colors, gold washi tape trim, and subtle additions of Marvel characters because it makes my husband happy.  Wish me luck!

2. We all know that Rugs USA is a pretty amazing source for affordable rugs, and I just thought I'd bring this one to your attention.  It's such a cool pattern that is NOT CHEVRON!  (My only concern is that the rug that looks 100% navy or cobalt to me is being labeled as black)

3. What do we think of these shoes? I LOVE my Gap smoking slippers, and wish I could find a good leopard pair, and these look similar but I've never had any Aldo shoes and don't know how they hold up. 

4. This outfit photo via See Jane is so "me", except I'm not a ripped denim person and I like my scarves a little smaller and I'm short and brunette.  I can confidently say that my brown leather jacket has been one of my best investments ever (very similar), as was my saffron colored scarf.  If you're on the fence... BUY!  Look how cute you'll look!

5. Don't forget that you have until midnight Central time tonight to enter to win the Uncommon Goods gold cuff bracelet.  Just leave a comment on the giveaway post (not here, please) and I'll pick a winner!

Bonus 6th Thing:  Are there any other HIMYM fans out there?  I hate that I'm hating this season, but I do like the mother a lot.  I keep hoping it will get better, but the characters are getting more cartoonish and there was a storyline about scrambled eggs.  It's painful, I tell you!

Happy weekend!
