Weekending | Five That Will Make You Laugh, Cry, & Wanna DIY

Five on Friday

Woohoo – it’s Friday!  I’m especially happy about it, because today my husband and I are celebrating our 27th anniversary, so we’re going on a little overnight getaway – it’ll be short… and cheap, but I’m looking forward to it.
