friday five // 03

ONE // WHY IT'S OK TO BE A QUITTER // Quitting can actually be a sign of maturity?? Apparently, "knowing when to call it quits shows a certain confidence informed by a real knowledge of who you are and what's right for you," according to this article that I came across on Something that I struggle with a lot, is knowing when to let it go or stick it out, so it was reassuring to see that this is a totally normal conflict to have with yourself. 

TWO // COFFEE AND HONEYCOMB // I seriously love that my best friend in the blog world is also one of my best friends in real life. Not only does Jenny motivate me to keep on posting, but I always love every. single. post. that she writes. I can't get enough!

THREE // HOSTESS WITH THE MOSTESS // This site provides me with the perfect inspiration for all the parties I don't throw. From birthdays to baby showers, Jenn and her team have endless ideas for themes, and I love staying up-to-date on what's happening and trendy in the events industry.

FOUR // ICE SKATING // I went ice skating last weekend with friends at Millennium Park, and it was so much fun (look out for my Olympic debut in Sochi). Not only was the rink located right in the middle of the city, but snow was falling, and it wasn't too windy or cold - it was just a perfect winter day!

FIVE // THE APPLE STORE // For as much as going into the Apple store terrifies me, I'm so grateful that when my computer crashed on Tuesday morning that I was able to get it back the next day with ALL my documents safe and sound. I don't even want to imagine what I would have done (slam my head against the wall, cry for days, etc. etc.) if everything on my hard drive had been lost.x

  1. These are all great Friday things! I'm off to check out your friend's blog.
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks! Hope you have a great weekend too :)

  2. Yay, excited to check out these other blogs you mentioned! And the Apple store is so intimidating, but I do really love their products!

    1. Definitely a small sacrifice for great products!

  3. I know I've already commented on your new layout before, but I SERIOUSLY cannot get enough! Everything about it makes me happy. (; Good choice, good choice...

    And thank you for the little shout out! You are always my #1 support AND inspiration. I'll definitely have to make my way to Chicago to come visit ya and have a blog date... ;)

    Ps. We still have to go to the dry bar. Don't go without me!

    1. I wouldn't dare go without you! We'll make it a brunch date too and I can take you to my favorite places :)

  4. These are very interesting things that happened on you. But in my opinion, the last one is the most stressful. Good thing all of your files have been retrieved. I couldn't imagine how things would've turned out if it was not. It’s an advantage to have a backup system nowadays because no one can tell when our computer will suddenly fail us.
