fill in the blank friday.

The work week is over
(for me at least….sorry if it’s not for you…my condolences)

That means that it’s the rehearsal dinner tonight and wedding Saturday and scattered throughout will be hangout time with our dear friends Caroline and Marc who will be in town and are staying with us.  We’re super excited to have them.  I’m pretty sure they’re the only people who’ve ever actually taken advantage of our guest room and we are thrilled to finally be using it.  Craig is looking forward to outdoing them in hospitality, but I’m not sure that’s possible since these two are quite possibly the nicest and most hospitable people I’ve ever met.  Like….ever.  Either way it will be a weekend full of food, friends and fun – can’t wait!  Oh….and please notice the lovely photo below that I borrowed for today that was taken by Caroline.  Isn’t is so perfectly summery?  Please do make sure to credit her photo if you use it for this week’s blanks!

1.   My go to outfit for a dress-up occasion like a wedding is       a tea length dress in black. It suits all seasons and can be dressed up or down. You can never go wrong with black   .

2.  This week has been    busy! So many things going on, but it’ll all be worth it  .

3.  When it’s dinnertime and I’m feeling lazy I’ll usually eat     a bowl of cereal or some eggs and toast  .

4.  My favorite pair of shoes is   my cheap-o clog heels from F21 or maybe my Hunter boots…both favorites .

5.  A random item that I own that is completely unnecessary, but that I could never part with is      my collection of silly little crafts that Craig and I exchanged when we were dating. Some of the stuff serves zero purpose, but nostalgia is important  .

6.  My favorite person is      my husband obviously, but Stephen Colbert is a pretty close second ;).   .

7.  If I were going to write my own blank it would say       I write my own blanks EVERY week, so I’m taking a break and waiting to see what you guys say  . 

What are your plans this weekend? 



  1. Aw, I love that you saved stuff from when you were dating. I also do things like that with relationships and usually keep a lot too. In fact, I came across old mixtapes from my first boyfriend…so, 7 years ago? It’s fun to look back.

  2. Oh Stephen Colbert, love him!

  3. Hi I’m new to your blog. =) Just thought I’d swing by and leave a comment. I def will be doing your fill in the blank series too. Have a great weekend!

  4. Hi Lauren! I’m a new follower, I LOVE your Fill in the Blank Friday feature! I did it today for the first time, it was so fun! Happy Friday!

  5. Hey there, Lauren, I’m also a newcomer to FITB Friday. Can’t wait to follow along each week. Thanks for hosting such a fun feature!

  6. plans this weekend? relaxing! it’s been a crazy week and I am ready to sit by the pool and do absolutely nothing. 🙂

  7. this weekend I plan on talking to a new hairstylist since I moved to a new city. I am scared shitless cause my guys have been doing my mop for 10+ years. Change is good right?

  8. Oh I love #5. We have a “memory box” where we keep random things from special moments 🙂

    Happy weekend!
