Five Things Friday {Whoop Whoop - Finally!}

Happy Friday Lovely Readers!
Hope you had a simply fabulous last week of November and you are starting to feel all the joys of Christmas time again. Now on to five things...

1. I had my tonsils taken out last week Tuesday - November 20 - that is reason #1 I have disappeared from this bloggidy blog. But, I am very grateful that was taken care of even if I did miss my Thanksgiving meal and had to have a popsicle instead. 

2. Yesterday I was going to try and head to school. But nope, never made it. Ever head of something called the flu? Yah, pray that decides to run away from me soon. 

3. Do you have your Christmas tree up? Ours is up, but this year I just observed from my spot on the couch with a popsicle in hand. Side note: Not sure if it is possible for me to have another popsicle again. I had waaayy to many this past week. 

4. I had a big happy smile on my face when Melanie announced she had a little obsession with sparkles because I do too.
I love this tank top.
And this one.

5. Blogger is being all weird and is currently making you pay if you want to add pictures. That's the reason for such a blah post with no colorful pictures. We will try and get that worked out...

Have a wonderful weekend. Enjoy the first couple days (and the rest) of December. I will try and get better at posting because I don't have an excuse anymore :)

Five Things Friday

Helloooo folk!
It's been a while hasn't it!? I have said it before and will say it again, I am super duper sorry for not a single post on my part since like a bajillion years ago. Our camera failed on me/us 2 weeks ago and we just got a new one. (the poor thing was unfixable) I hope to get something going super soon!
Anyways, I hope you all had a marvelous Thanksgiving, and indulged in some delicious comfort food.
And today? Black Friday! Did you hit the stores?
After a long day of shopping myself (with my cousins ;) I am ready to hit the sack, but it was so worth the lack of sleep because of some of the deals we got!

Since Pinterest is my all time favorite place to 'surf the web' I thought I'd share with you readers some of my favorite pins as of today-- we'll take it the Christmasy theme today since it's the next holiday up and it's SNOWING! Can't get more in the spirit of Christmas than that I'd say.
 (most likely pins will be gold and or glittery since that is my obsession)

I'm really in love with all things gold and glittery this year so this darlin garland made my boards.  

Gold polka-dot washi-tape. Good way to dress up a present wrapped in solid colored paper!

Very festive pillows!

Cute Christmas printable.

I found this adorable ornament last year around Christmas but still love it.
(sorry for the fuzzy pictures)

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.

Carrie Underwood Concert {A-ma-zing}

*before I tell you about something spectacular I want to let you know that TOMORROW I will be at the Hudsonville High School Craft Show - 9 until 3. This is my last one! Make sure you stop by & say hi*

I am so sorry I kept a secret from you, but now it has been revealed. I saw the amazing Carrie Underwood in concert last night at the Van Andel for her Blown Away tour and let me tell you, I was for sure BLOWN AWAY. I honestly could sit and listen to her for hours on end. I am actually surprised that I did not tell before because I was just bursting with excitement for like, oh, 6 months. 

When I saw that she had a new album coming out I knew I had to get it. Then I thought Oh maybe she will have a tour too. I totally want to go! What do you know?! Of course, there was a tour! So, the day the tickets went I sale I got them! (Actually there was an awesome story about that -- for another time? Maybe.)

Then when I heard that Hunter Hayes would be opening I was even more thrilled. I mean, who wouldn't be :)

Do you want a recap of the concert? Well no matter if you do or not I am going to give you one. 

I have two word's to describe it to start with: incredible + amazing. 

First Up: Hunter Hayes

My personal favorite songs he sang were: Everybody's Got Somebody But Me (in his word's the most humorous + depressing song ever - he's quite funny by the way), and Wanted.

Has anybody ever told you he can play like 22 instruments? I think in every song he was playing a different one. #talented

(before the show - it was definitely more packed than that)

Next Up: Carrie Underwood

Carrie sang for about 2 hours and they were the best 2 hours of my whole entire year. I can't even begin to pick my favorites from her - I would be listing every song. She had 5 different outfit changes and each outfit was beautiful. + she is a speedy changer. dress to dress to skinny jeans to casual to dress each in between songs. whew. wish i could be that fast

*insert: picture overload*

(the stage was amazing)

Funny Moment: 
Brad Paisley + Carrie Underwood have a song called Remind Me together and Carrie performed - when it got to Brad's part they put this amazing digital video up of him singing. It was both funny and awesome at the same time. Carrie would stand by the Brad figure on the screen and yah...
(secretly I was hoping Brad Paisley would come out and start singing - he has done that before)

Carrie and Hunter singing together! Could it get better?

Um, Yes. Did I mention there was a floating stage involved?

The encore was probably the best 10 minutes ever. She ended it with her song Blown Away, and I think everybody was blown away. 

(tons of confetti going off - Carrie's in the middle of that somewhere) 

Me telling you all of this is probably making you wish you were there. Sorry, you missed the best concert ever. :) But, if you get the chance to go to one of her's- take it!

Have a wonderful weekend!

All of these pictures were taken with my iPhone, so sorry for the bad quality but I think you get the big idea :)

{My} Craft Show Finds

Not only do I love selling things at a craft show, but I love searching other peoples booth. And of course I sometimes have to support their business. 

At the Byron Center craft show this past weekend I got both of the following items.
A magenta colored necklace, and 3 cuuttteee flower bobby pins. 

Do you like them? Yes. Ahh Thanks. 

I would tell you the name of the shops, but I kinda forget. Sorry...

Have a good week!

Also, I know some of my hair looks kinda green + pink, but I promise you it is not.

Hey I Just Met You - And This Is Crazy (but I just made the longest tutorial ever!)

Heelllooo and Happy Saturday at last. 
Well I just slaved over making this hair tutorial for you guys. I am pretty sure that it is the longest thing in the whole entire world. 36 steps to be exact, but I am pretty sure you could do it in like 5. 
Let if know if any of you try it. Really though, it only takes about 5 - 10 minutes. Super Duper, Easy Measy. 

Notes: Don't mind my awkward faces. You will never know how weird it is to look at a camera in this way. 
Also, sorry for my glasses glare in like 2/3 of the pictures. 
And finally...yes, they are in black and white but that is only because if I did it in color you would not see my eyes - instead the computer screen. #glassesproblems

Did you like it? Guess I never told you the name, consider it the crown braid. 

Have a good rest of your weekend!

P.S. Did I get Call Me Maybe stuck in your head? Sorry. Kinda. :)

Five Things Friday

Did you think we... more like I almost forgot about 5 things Friday? Truth is, I did... almost. After have 2 3 days weeks this 5 day week kind of slapped me in the face, resulting in a forgetful, massive tired brain. But hey, it's Friday now so I shall not complain.

1. The reason for the lack of posts coming from my end of the world is because our Byron Center craft show is a week from tomorrow.... AAAAHHH. Save me now. But don't get me wrong, I am extremely excited for it! Like the kind of exited when I stay up till midnight on school nights just thinking about it kind of excited. 
 Anyhoo, I've been sewing my little heart out lately, hoping to get enough merchandise to sell to the public. 

2. I'm really in love with this. Someone wanna crochet it for me?

3. About 2 weeks ago we got our family pictures taken while the trees weren't as bare as they are now. Here are just a couple to entertain you folk.

You may think didn't Taylor just say she got theirs done too? Mhmm. She sure did. Same day to be exact.

4. I crave pasta 24/7. Doesn't this look tasty? Skillet chicken parmesan. Mmmm, I'd take a plate or 2. 

5. If I had a craft show, my walls would involve hoop art with spunky fabric. 
(this is from Meg from Whatever's craft weekend. Oh how I dream of going to one...)
