5 Things Friday

Happy Friday, internet!  I hope everyone is staying warm and gearing up for a fun weekend.  I'm planning on celebrating my friend's baby (due 2 weeks before Baby Cardigan - they're going to be such cute little buddies!) and hopefully making a bit more nursery progress.  (Who knew finding an affordable, large, round mirror in Dallas would be so hard?)

Until then, here are five things worth sharing on the internet:

1. It's been years, and I'm still obsessed with gallery walls.  This one from Kelly Oxford's office is perfection!  I think the mix of white space and saturated color is what makes it pop.

2. My hair is getting super crazy long, and I want to try something like this but it looks hard to do on yourself.

3. I love when old things look modern - isn't it cool to think that this quilt is 114 years old but looks like you'd see it in West Elm today?  It can be yours for the bargain price of $3,200!

4. I want to have a waist again, and then wear a flared dress like this striped one at Gap.  I checked it out in store when I was shopping for $2 baby clothes (surprisingly plentiful!) and it's super cute and nicely made.  The sleeveless version would also be a great office staple, or even work for cocktail dress codes with the right jewelry and shoes.  I'd consider getting one tailored if you can find it for 40% off!

5. As much as I freak out about getting things done before the baby arrives, one thing I've been sure to keep doing is baking.  I love it, and this week's recipe looks pretty easy and my husband might even eat it.  Check out this lemon pound cake from Martha Stewart Living.

Have a nice weekend!
