F I V E on F R I D A Y

TGIF y'all.  We made it to the weekend, can I get an amen?!  Now how about some randoms on this Friday...

ONE || Things I Spend My $$$ On
A Fitbit flex (add me), flowers and Younique products.  (whole post here)  And speaking of Younique, the company with the "photoshop in a bottle" foundation, I'm hosting a virtual party through Monday.  Thinking of ordering their products, shop here.  Seriously y'all, youtube some videos and try not to be amazed.

TWO || The Bachelor
I'm loving this season (as always) and of course all the drama and craziness that comes along with it.  Anyone else watching?  I just love Ben and I really hope he finds someone at the end of the show.  My favorites are Lauren B, Becca, Caila and Jo Jo.


THREE || Dirty Grandpa
Thomas and I went to the movies last night (weeknight date, whattt) and Dirty Grandpa was pretty funny.  Not to mention the seats reclined back and the foot raised up.  Heavenly.

FOUR || Visiting the Mountains
This weekend (possibly by the time you're reading this) I am going home for a weekend visit.  It should be noted that the last time I was home was over Thanksgiving and for literally 24 hours.  Needless to say I'm anxious to be going home and soaking up some family time. 



FIVE || Resolutions Essentials Giveaway
Keep up with those resolutions with the help of this giveaway.  I mean who doesn't wanna Fitbit?!  



Happy Friday loves.  Keep up with my weekend shenanigans on snapchat: @mary_timmerman

Our Winter Mantle [+ a giveaway]

Now that all the Christmas decor is down (finally : as in our tree came down last week) I'm trying to fill the void with Winter decor.  All the whites, silvers and various forms of trees your heart could desire.  I gotta admit I quite love it. 





Seriously, decorating our house (remember our Fall Mantle Makeover) never gets old.  Now if only we could finish the guest room so I could show y'all what we've been working on.  Happy Thursday loves.

Almost everything is from Target (per usual) with a little bit of Walmart and Hobby Lobby items thrown in.  

This adorable free, "Winter Essentials" print :: Jones Design Company.

And now for a giveaway...

Things I Spend My $$ On

Oh Monday we meet again.  But today I'm actually pretty excited because it means I'm that much closer to going home this weekend (hopefully, if the snow doesn't ruin my plans again) and because I've been really looking forward to this post.  I'm easily amused I suppose, but I've been dying to share with y'all what I spend my money on.  And mainly I'm s u p e r curious what everyone else spends their money on.
Join me in linking up with Sarah Emily Blogs or share what you've been spending your money on lately in the comments below.
THINGS I'VE SPENT MY $$ ON (this month):

+ Fitbit Flex : Academy (and 3 decorative bands)
To say I love my fitbit would be an understatement.


Younique Mineral Pressed Powder Foundation : My Facebook Party
After seeing all the videos on facebook of the "magic mascara" and "photoshop in a bottle" foundation, I bought the pressed powder foundation and love it.  
I'm not a huge makeup girl, and don't know how to do anything fancy.  But when I have a blemish I want something to cover it, and this weekend it has totally fit the bill.  I'm hosting a online party.  If you're interested in buying any of their products SHOP HEREor feel free to ask my any questions.
 

 
+ Desk Organizer : Target
+ Sugar Paper Blush Portfolio : Target
This is going hold all of our important papers and keep us organized (not to mention, how cute is it?!)
+ Letter Holder : Target
Can you tell I'm working on our office space and organization?  This is going to be part of the gallery wall in our office, but it's going to hold bills that need to be paid.  I fell in love with it as soon as I laid eyes on it.
+ Target Dollar Spot
This is my weakness of all weaknesses.  I've been stocking up with Valentines decor, office decor and "prize box" items all month long.  I love me some dollar spot deals!
+ Planner Stickers : Etsy
I've been dying to buy some planner stickers to spruce up my planner a bit, and these donut ones (and these weekly menu ones) are SO. DANG. CUTE. Now if only I could find a new planner that fits my needs.


+ Wifi Sweet Wifi Digital Download : Etsy
I've been working on our guest room, and this wifi print is cute and helpful.  Not to mention only $5.
+ Bath Tub Caddy : Bed Bath & Beyond
This is actually my anniversary present from T (that was in June), but we finally picked it up this month.  #lazy 
Shark Hand Vaccuum : Walmart
+ Fresh Flowers
A little mid-January pick me up.  Aren't they gorgeous?
So, what have you been spending your money on?  Do share.

Timmerman Party of 2: The Bride and Groom [part 1]

Thomas and I chose to do our "bride and groom" pictures before our ceremony.  We chose to do that to save time between our ceremony and reception, and we had already seen each other from our first look.  I love every single picture our photographer took of us, and will most definitely be treasuring them for years to come.  We already have a couple around the house, but I can't wait to get some canvases made and our wedding album back.  Eek
And now for the pictures... Happy Wedding Wednesday y'all.

    F I V E on F R I D A Y

    It's Friday, a full day of professional development workshops for me (but I'll take it) and Monday is a holiday.  Hallelujah!  Happy Friday loves.  Now for some five on Friday...

    ONE | MY TIU
    I finally got a gym membership (it's been almost six months since I moved, shameful) and started going at the end of last week.  This week I added the daily TIU workout after my cardio session, and man do those girls know how to kick my butt.  Anyone else do the TIU workouts?


    TWO | Baby it's Cold Outside Gift Baskets
    How I'm avoiding the cold and flu season this year.  And some cute, on sale slippers too.

     

    THREE | Meet Our Bridal Party
    Did you catch my wedding recap post this Wednesday?  It's a good one y'all.



    FOUR | Slow Cooker Conversion Chart
    Now that the temps are finally getting a little cooler, we're starting to use our crock pot more and more.  So when I came across this conversion chart on Pinterest this past weekend I knew that I had to share this gold mine with y'all.  What are your favorite slow cooker recipes?


    FIVE | Four Day Weekend
    Today is a work day (filled with PD workshops, but still) and Monday is Martin Luther King Day, which means a four day weekend for this year.  Can I get an amen?!  Thomas and I are road tripping to visit his sister in NC and I can't wait.  

    What are your plans this weekend?  What's your favorite crock pot meal?

    Timmerman Party of 2: Meet the Bridal Party

    Last week, I shared our bridal party pictures.  Y'all, we had the best bridal party and I LOVE the pictures we have with them from our favorite day.  So this week for Wedding Wednesday I want to share a little bit more about each of the people in our bridal party.  Short and sweet, but with several pictures as always.
    How did you decide who would be in your bridal party?




    MEET Carolyn | Maid of Honor
    Carolyn and I are high school best friends.  Despite being 2 hours apart during our college years we managed to see each other all the time during the four (and a half) years.  She is currently in her last semester in law school, and her strive seriously amazes me.  She is definitely my favorite gal in all the land.  



    MEET Heather | Bridesmaid
    Heather and I met in college.  Two weeks into college we became inseparable and that remained until we graduated in December of 2013 and moved away from each other.  We were roommates all throughout college, and she is the closest I've ever had to a sister.  Despite living in separate states we do our best to still see each other often, and its as if we've never been apart.  Heather is currently a 6th grade teacher (like me!), and she inspires me daily to do the best I can at my job.



    MEET Deanna | Bridesmaid
    Deanna and I also met in college.  We both clogged (with Heather) and joined the same sorority.  We are almost always thinking the same thing, and sometimes I think she knows me better than myself.  Deanna got married this past September and I was in her wedding as well.  She is currently a Paralegal at a law firm in NC.



    MEET Michelle | Bridesmaid
    Michelle is Carolyn's younger sister, and throughout high school whenever we would hang out Michelle would always be there.  Shel was often my partner-in-crime while Care was busy making sure we didn't get into too much trouble, and driving us around to get McDonalds at 2am.  Shel is a go-getter and has a fiery personality.  She is currently in her last semester at Respiratory Therapy school.  That family is full of high achievers.



    MEET Ashley | Sister-in-Law
    Ashley is Thomas' oldest sister.  Like the rest of his family, Ashley has been welcoming from the very start.  She is also a teacher, but right now is fulfilling the greatest job there is in raising her 3 kids.  Two of which were in our bridal party (below).



    MEET Audrey | Sister-in-Law
    Audrey is Thomas' older sister, as well.  She is one of the most out going, competitive people I know.  Audrey is the assistant coach for the women's basketball team at Belmont Abbey College.  It's always inspiring seeing someone working towards their dreams and kicking butt at it.

    my sister-in-laws
    my favorite gals





    MEET Tommy | Best Man
    Tommy is Thomas' dad.  These two are truly something else.  They hunt together, fish together, play baseball together (until Thomas graduated college), and talk sports together.  I'm not sure I've met many father/son relationships quite like theirs.  



    MEET Hudson | Groomsman
    Hudson and Thomas went to high school together.  They played football and were always hanging out with their group of friends.  Even know when they get together it's as if they were never apart for college, talking sports and stuff country boys talk about nonstop.



    MEET Brad | Groomsman
    Brad is Thomas' brother-in-law, and is married to Ashley. 





    MEET Coty | Groomsman
    Coty and Thomas were college roommates and great friends.  Going to college with the both of them I got to see their friendship, and it truly can't be descrbied.  These two together are one-of-a-kind.  Coty recently got married in September and Thomas was in his wedding, too.




    MEET Alex | Brother-in-Law
    Alex is my youngest brother.  Alex is very outgoing, loves being outdoors and refuses to fit in any mold.  He is unique and prefers it that way.  




    MEET Brian | Brother-in-Law
    Brian is my oldest, younger brother.  He is a senior at ASU and is working on becoming a teacher as well.  He is a sports fanatic, independent and a firm believer in his beliefs.  

    brothers-in-law



    MEET the littlest bridal party members.  Hunter (ring bearer) and Hanna (flower girl) are our nice and nephew, and SO much fun to be around.  They are on-the-go, full of life and the BEST ring bearer/flower girl there ever were.








    CONFESSION: As much as I love our bridal party pictures I will treasure these ones so much more.  Having a picture with each bridesmaid in my wedding is so important to me as our friendships will continue to grow throughout the years.  And I'm sure Thomas feels the same way about all of his men.  So there you have it the best bridal party around y'all...
