Five on Friday / 1.9.15

Happy Friday, friends! I returned home from my girl's trip late Wednesday night after having the best time. I was so sad to leave beautiful Paris, London and my friends, but also so glad to be home and reunited with Roberto!

As you probably have heard...there was a shooting on Wednesday in Paris. Thankfully, my friends and I left that morning before the shooting occurred. What a horrific and very sad situation...saying many prayers for those who lost a loved one and the city of Paris.

On a lighter note...let's get a little Five on Friday started.

London and Paris were both unbelievable. Best friends, 8 days, two incredible cities? It was pretty perfect. I have missed my best friends so much and a girl's trip is just good for the soul! I am so very grateful for this trip with them! Stay week I will start recapping our adventure.

Last year for Rob's birthday, I got him this One Line A Day book. And with the new year starting, I wanted to share this with you all!

 Last year, before we started to fill it out.

It would be a perfect way to start your new year. On a single page there are spaces to write what you did/inspiration from that day, there are enough spaces to do that for 5 years. So we have one full year filled and have started the second year. It is so fun to see what we did on the same day of the previous year. And to think at year five we will be able to read little snippets from the past four years...that just makes me giddy! We love this book. It is so fun to remember little moments and always brings a smile to our face. It is such a fun way to document your day to day to life!

Earlier this week, I shared a little interview I did with the husband. And it turned out pretty darn fun! So if you are interested in getting to know Mr. Lew Party of Two or just need a good laugh...check it out here.

I think one of the highlights of our girl's trip was the night in London we went to afternoon tea and then to see Wicked. I was so excited to do both and they most definitely did not disappoint. Tea was just so cute and everything you would imagine it to be and Wicked (really my first real show) was ah-mazing. Headed to London soon or in the future? These two events are a must...I will share more details next week!

Have you heard this mash-up?? Oh good!! Do yourself a favor and listen to it ASAP. {If video below doesn't work, click here to watch!}

So glad you stopped by today. I hope you all have a fabulous and fun weekend! We have a very relaxing one planned...which is the epitome of fun in our book :)

Happy Friday!



  1. So glad that you're ok and that you had a blast! Getting away with good girl friends is the best! Love that daily journal! My friend gave me one with questions for each day when I got married. Like you said, it's gonna be cool to look back at previous years and see what I was doing that day. I saw that video and I love it! So so good! I saw Wicked in NYC and it was incredible! Loved everything about it--I didn't know it was in Paris! That's so fun!
    Have a great weekend with Roberto! Hopefully you'll get fully recovered from all of your fun!
