Friday Five: Vday Celebrations, Baby Lane, Credit Card Payoff, Ballet Flats + Good News.

Back for another Friday Five with five things that have made me happy this week! 

Since I have to work an event tonight, Cameron and I celebrated Valentine's Day last night. I had to stop by the grocery store after work, so I picked up Cameron's gifts while I was a there - a 12 pack of Sam Adams Seasonal and some NY strips. Beer + steaks = the way to my man's heart. I also bought him this card since he's been on a bourbon kick lately and he always used to jokingly tell me I was "neat" when we first started dating. Ha.

When I got home from the store, I walked in the door and immediately dropped the groceries. Not because there was a beautiful bouquet of flowers sitting on the table, but because he got me the gift I had mentioned I wanted one multiple times. A simple letter. It was perfect. 

And then he took me out to a delicious dinner at the Mustard Seed
Love that man. 

Ok, get ready for Lane picture overload. That sweet nugget graced us with his presence Tuesday evening and my phone is already full of pics of him. He's just so perfect!

Ready to go home!

As some of you may have seen on Instagram earlier this week, I paid off another credit card on Monday! Feels so good! That would be #3 out of 6. Only one is a major credit card, the rest being cards like Victoria's Secret, Best Buy, etc that I stupidly opened up in college. Again, I have Cameron to thank for really pushing me to pay these things off. 

Yesterday, Katie posted about some flats from Target and the cognac version caught my eye. My TB Revas are not cutting it any longer. The right shoe will not stay on my heel and I get so frustrated when I wear them. I'm about to take them to a consignment store and swap them out for the Target pair until I can buy the tan TB Caroline's.
