five on friday.

Happy Friday -- I'm I'm linking up with ChristinaAprilNatasha, and Darci today. 
Here are five things on my mind lately:
ONE: H and I want to go to a movie this weekend -- we're considering seeing Birdman, The Imitation Game, or Foxcatcher... have any recommendations?
TWO: Splurge vs. Steal. I received a Nordstrom gift card for Christmas so I decided to treat myself and buy an expensive ($78!) robe. When I got it in the mail I loved how soft it was but the front-tie was sooo awkward. Even without a bump, the tie in the front is not practical because when that fabric swings open you see can everything. So I returned the robe (hooray for free returns) and bought a much cheaper robe from Target. The Target robe has a similar kimono style, ties on the side and it's super soft. Plus at $22 I won't mind if this one gets spit up on :)
THREE: Minted has a really cute collection of Valentine's Day Cards! They are offering 20% off foil-pressed designs with the code FOILLOVE (offer expires at 11:50 PM PST on 1/26/2015).
FOUR: I'm still working my way through my Charleston restaurant wish list. It seems like everytime I cross something off I have a new restaurant I want to add :) but I'm not complaining! This weekend I'm having lunch with the girls at Butcher & Bee. Their menu changes daily so realllly hope they're serving burgers!
FIVE: Don't forget to enter the RapidLash giveaway! A winner will be emailed on Wednesday, January 28. 

Have a great weekend!

  7. I saw Foxcatcher last weekend. We tried to see The Imitation Game, but it was sold out. Foxcatcher is definitely interesting. It's a fairly depressing story, but the movie was really great. The actors transformations into these characters was worth seeing.

    Butcher and Bee is delicious! I haven't had the burger, but I always love the veggie plate.

  8. Oh my those burgers are making me hungry!! Yum. Love that you did a restaurant wish list. That's a great idea! Nice find on the Target robe. And those Vday cards are super cute. I'm sure once I have a baby to dress up all cute I'll send out cards like that at every little holiday. :) Hope you have a good weekend lady!

  9. Fab find on the robe. I got mine from target as well, it's a few years old and is still in great condition. Love those Valentine's Day cards.

  10. We never go to movies (even pre-baby, so I guess I can't complain about that changing things, ha), but these ones are all actually tempting, I've heard such good things about them, especially The Imitation Game. And I had that same Target robe for hospital/nursing... nice and soft and totally functional, so definitely save your Nordstrom $$ for something else fun, I say :)

  11. I've never really thought about sending Valentine's Day cards like Christmas cards, but those designs are SO cute, and I just love the foil! I love your splurge vs save comment, too. Some things are worth it, and some just are not! Now, you can buy something else fun at Nordstrom!

  14. We're seeing Foxcatcher tonight! There are so many good movies out right now - it's hard to choose what to see! Have a good weekend :)

  15. hmm I havent heard of Foxcatcher but I have heard lots of good things about Birdman and The Imitation Game - I want to see both. Maybe we'll go to the movies this weekend too! That burger looks so delish, you'll have to let us know how that restaurant is. I wish Louisville had some good restaurants, well they have a few but certainly not as many as Charleston!

  20. Forgot to tell yall that the kale salad at B&B is incredible (really well-chopped with like an Asian twist and peanuts!). Have so much fun at the movies and lunch! And win for a robe that doesn't give a free show with each wear hah.

  31. Oh my! Yes, that is such an awkward way to close a bathrobe! Haha. I adore your more practical Target version, though. :-)
