Friday Five.

Good morning and TGIF! So glad it's finally Friday, although this week did seem to fly by. We've got our holiday pot luck luncheon today at work and I'm whipping up Stephanie's crock pot mac and cheese once again. But this time I'm switching it up and using pepper jack cheese. I am going to want a nap ASAP afterwards. 

Here are five things I've been loving this week..

I ordered a pair of earrings last week from Baublebar as a Christmas gift, so I was really surprised when I opened the box and saw this necklace in there! I seriously thought they sent me the wrong order or I forgot that I had ordered it. Nope, just great customer service and now I'm hooked for life!

Let's all pause for a moment and take in this beautiful sunrise over the ocean from this morning. Maybe I'm just now opening my eyes, but I feel like Charleston has been having some really amazing sunrises and sunsets this year. 

On to another beautiful thing...tequila. A caterer dropped this glorious gift off yesterday and you would have thought I won the lottery. I was so excited! Cameron and I enjoyed delicious margaritas with our Mexican rice bowls for dinner last night. Ole!

This is my gorgeous friend and co-worker, Leah. Yesterday I walked into her office and busted out laughing because we were wearing almost the exact same outfit. It's only hilarious because we are the "rebels" of our company..not exactly adhering to all of the dress codes. Whoops. 

Cannot believe Christmas is 5 days away! Which means my 30th birthday is 9 days away! We've got parties galore this weekend and are making a special trip to church on Sunday with Cameron's grandmother. I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday!

Linked up with April, Christina, and the rest of the 5 on Friday girls!
