5 on Friday

Hello Friday! 

It feels so good to be back on the blog this week. Ladies, I have missed y'all! I have a million reasons to be excited this weekend and I cannot wait to share them with you. On with the link-up!

1. I am half-a-lawyer. 
I am completely finished with my third semester of law school, which means I am half way done. Oh yes, I am thrilled. 

Has anyone else been dying for one of these? Every southern-blogger-under-40 has one but me. I wanted one last year and couldn't find one to save my life. I even searched ebay, but nothing. I almost bought a knock-off this fall, but gave up on it. 

Then, I was christmas shopping yesterday at the outlets and saw a women with the vest. I literally ran up to her and said "I have been searching for that vest! Are you buying it or can I have it?" <-- I am such a creeper. She handed it to me, I saw the size (XXS) and died. PERFECT. 

3. As I type this, there are a million chocolate covered pretzels across my dining room table. 
I shared my go-to holiday treat yesterday on the blog and made a large batch for AR's office. 

I haven't met everyone at his new office yet, but I want to be sure to get on their good side ;)

4. Our Holiday photos are absolutely perfect. (IMO - haha)

Now that my cards are out, I can share these. Here are some of my favorites:

Our photographer here in Atlanta was amazing and snapped a gorgeous set of pictures for our holiday cards on a chilly saturday morning in Piedmont Park. Didn't she do a gorgeous job?? 

5. I started my christmas shopping..
But is it weird that I'm more excited about wrapping gifts than buying them? I really love wrapping presents. My friend and I have the best trip to the mall yesterday and made a great dent in the holiday shopping list, but we are already planning a hot chocolate/holiday movie/ gift wrapping afternoon. Cannot wait. 

Have an awesome weekend!
