Friday Five: BHG Cover, Lunch Date, Dinner Date, New Fave Necklace, + Leopard Make-Up Bag.


 {one}
Back in 1989, Cameron's parents entered a home improvement contest through the magazine, Better Homes and Gardens, for their back porch that Cameron's dad built, and they won! With that win, they landed the cover of the October 1989 issue. Cameron definitely gets his "handiness" from his dad.

Yesterday I had the day off, so in between loads of laundry, I got Leslie out of the house and we went to lunch with 8 week old Baby Cate in tow. We discovered that she loves the Van Morrison station on Pandora, which might be a lifesaver for Leslie. Look at that cute little smile! Please excuse my lack of make-up.

Last night, I had a wonderful dinner with Shelby, Ally & Caitlin at Al di La! Shelby and I have been friends before we even started our blogs (our husbands went to high school and college together) and Ally happens to be Shelby's husband's cousin, so we've hung out a few times before, also. But it was all of ours first time meeting Caitlin! We must have all clicked because we were there for 3 hours. :)

Being that it was restaurant week, below were the three courses that I chose. 
Beef carpaccio with fried capers
Tagliatelle with duck confit, cremini mushrooms, and truffle oil
Tiramisu with toasted hazelnuts

The necklace that I wore to dinner is one of my new favorites and it was given to me by my aunt and uncle for my birthday. But I can only wear it with a few things because it is SUCH a statement necklace. Of course I'm drawing a blank now on what website it's from since I deleted it from my Pinterest Wishlist board.

Since I lost my make-up bag back in November, Cameron gave me a new one for Christmas that I LOVE. My friend, Savannah, actually put it on my radar because she was giving one to her Mother-in-Law for Christmas. It's from Stella & Dot and it comes in lots of different patterns. 

For once in a long time, we have no plans this weekend! 
I do have a new house project in the works so maybe I'll take care of that.
 Have a nice weekend!
