oh hey friday | it's random up in here (up in here)

it's friday. sweet sweet friday. does it get sweeter? it definitely does, but for now...let's relish in the joy of the entire weekend staring us straight in the face.

(and my farmer and i are turtle free.)

(sidebar - we miss her terribly...but we don't. but we do. we definitely do.)

but of course...we have a little work to do, like getting our oh hey, friday! posts linked up. 

here's the drill:

1 | write up a little post about five things. anythings. five dreams. five things that happened this past week. five goals. five of your favorite recipes...literally anything you want. 

2 | head back over here and enter your link at the bottom of this post.

3 | link back to our blogs and/ or add the oh hey, friday! button (found just below) by copying the HTML into the HTML section of your post  so that others can link up as well! that's it. now get busy.
1 | did you happen to see my little call for help yesterday? if you didn't, you can see the post in it's entirety here. otherwise, allow me to summarize:
basically what farmer and i are asking for is just a small little favor. i mean...really miniscule. can you help us name our baby? see what i'm saying? just a small task.

so far the response has been amazing and there are so so so many good ideas. names that we are definitely considering, which is so exciting. so...

seriously...i'm not asking for you to divulge your #1 girl name...but maybe you could share your second or third pick? we have exactly zero names picked we're a little late to the party.

just leave a little comment. or you can e-mail me. or you can twitter me. or facebook me. you have options. but please please help us. the struggle is real.
2 | on a completely unrelated note, september is RIGHT around the corner. september also happens to be my BIRTHDAY MONTH!! i'm getting excited over here...can you tell? i'd love to do september up real REAL good...which means i want to have a big giveaway here on the blog. this is also why i'm offering 30% off my gal-face group giveaway spots. just use the code GIVEAWAY30.

if a feature is more your deal...don't be afraid to check out the other spots...they all get you in on the group giveaway...or your own!

3 | call me mom of the year or whatever...but i was honestly considering skipping any sort of birthday celebration for our dear, sweet turtle this year. i mean...she's only turning two. which is exactly my point! she's turning TWO!! and she's becoming a big sister. this is a big deal people. so...i sucked it up and started doing a little party prep...because i know the closer i get to october, the less i'll want to do.
now, i'm no whiz with photoshop or design in general...but i was able to jazz together this little invitation, which will fit the chalkboard theme perfectly...with dashes of pink + mint. i'll also be having a lot of fun trying to figure out how to design some cupcake toppers, water bottle labels, and more than likely a birthday banner. i have to figure out how to waste my time during her three hour naps somehow. i certainly don't want to clean.

4 | and in case you missed it...farmer and i both forgot our anniversary last week. but good news...we're in denver now (for a lovely couple's wedding) and he's promised me lots of romance and kissy pictures to make up for our faulty memories.

tonight we went to a rockies game (fresh off the plane...the plane ride from hell) and just like that...kissy-face pictures. plus we're super photogenic, so we've got that going for us.
tomorrow is the wedding + reception. i have high hopes that my farmer will be spinning my pregnant self across the dance floor. my farmer...he's got moves you've never seen.

ultimately, i hope our weekend will be worth recapping for you.

5 | breaking bad. am i the very last person on the planet to finish this series? i finally knocked out the finale on the treadmill on thursday. it was all i could do to keep from yelling, "shoot them! shoot them all! shoot them with no mercy. die. die! DIE!" brought out the most violent parts of me. ultimately what i'm saying here is...if you haven't seen this show, watch it. love it. get violent with it. don't do meth.
oh...and another show i'm loving right now: jersey belle on bravo.

happy friday you fine fine ladies...and my dad...and my farmer. (the only two men who might read my blog.)


  1. Denver is such a fun city! If you're a foodie, I suggest the restaurant 1515. I went there two weekends ago and it was divine :)!

  2. Haha! Oh my goodness I laughed so hard. I JUST finished watching breaking bad a couple weeks ago. So don't worry you weren't the only one late to the party. That show does bring out some crazy thoughts for sure!

  3. You're hilarious, Karli! :) I am way impressed that you're doing birthday invitations for OCTOBER! Wow! Love the pictures of y'all at the Rockies game - we love baseball. And I've never seen Breaking Bad...I probably should get on that at some point. Have fun at the wedding this weekend!!

  4. I have not seen Breaking Bad but it's on my list..but Jersey Belle. Love it! Cracks me up! How great are you for having invites planned? Our second guy's birthday is in November and I've kicked around an idea and theme but have yet to get the ball rolling. And we all know how helpful new baby will be with that process. Enjoy your weekend away! I love kid-free weddings sometimes!

  5. I am loving Jersey Belle!
    I was so depressed after Breaking Bad ended... I'm thrilled Sal is coming back though! :)

  6. I found out i was having a girl when I was almost 17 weeks, now I am 22 weeks & we still can not settle on a name! It is super hard! It took us only 2 weeks to come up with our first daughters name after finding out she was a girl! Her name is Kenzie Love. & our last name is Lee. We LOVE it! Here are a few names that I love but my hubs is against or we cant use bc of people we know:: Daisy, Maxine & call her Max, Blake, Carson, Maddie, Faith, Eliza, & Monroe, I have lists of names but those are the only ones I could remember. :P Good Luck Mama!

  7. Oh my gosh #5 made me so happy! My husband and I JUST started the series last month and we are entering Season 3 right now....I felt like we were the only ones left on the planet who hadn't seen the series. Also, I'm super impressed with the b-day invitation. I'm still trying to learn the Adobe Suite software and it feels like everything takes me 10 hours!

  8. Awesome job on the invite! It looks great! Hope you get lots of kissy pictures this weekend :)

  9. Baby names... hmmmm I combined my two favorite names for my daughter... Nola Ryleigh, feel free to borrow. I also love Addison Grace, Macey Jane, Charleigh Lynn, Bella, Izzy, Lucy, ... just keep reading! There is a baby naming site where you can type in the siblings name and find a name that goes well with it. :)

  10. Breaking Badddd. YES! Isn't it phenomenal?
    The invite you made is adorable. Sweet little turtle!
    Have a GREAT weekend!

  11. I hope you guys have fun in Denver! I'm going to Virginia this week, I can't wait! Aww, your little one is adorable! I hope you guys have a great weekend!

  12. Ahh just signed up for the Gal Face Giveaway! :) Can't wait to team up with you and all the other ladies! Kaye's birthday invite is so cute! I'm loving the chalkboard look!

    Oh, and if I learned anything from yesterday's name post. I don't think I can name my future baby Charlotte. Way too popular! :(

  13. Yes I'm the dork who put my linky pic in sideways. That's what I get for rushing! Looks like super fun at the game. I love Denver, such a great town! I have to go thru all my preggo journals and look at names. For my last little girl I wanted Fiona but my ex hated it so we settled on Ava Charlotte. Which I love! Have a great weekend!

  14. Enjoy Denver! I love Breaking Bad. They are having marathons every week now so I'll be watching it again. I have Jersey Belle on my DVR but haven't had a chance to watch it yet.

  15. I hope you two are having a fabulous weekend getaway!
    Oh, and Jersey Belle, I can't even. The southern town they are filming in is my town, or more so the town five minutes from my home. It's ridiculously staged, and the women and the show are so very fake. Nonetheless, I can't seem to look away from it. It's like a train wreck that you just can't stop watching.

  16. The birthday party invites are so cute! Good job :) You are not the only late BB fan, we were a few years late too. We live where it was filmed, I know, great claim to fame right?! Wrong! But, it is such an awesome show. I'm re-watching it again right now!

  17. Oh Karli, You crack my shit up! I have ZERO girl names to give you as I always know I'm never having a mini me so I'm no help BUT you could stick with the K theme and maybe you could be like the Kardahsians, farmer style ;) Just give it a thought XO

  18. My siblings and I are all K names so my list of baby names for the future consists entirely of K names. Some of my favourites: Karsyn, Kendahl, Kambelle, Kenia, and Kinley. Naming my dog was hard enough so I'm glad that I have awhile yet before I actually have to name a human being!

    I haven't gotten into Breaking Bad yet but its definitely on my list - I've heard so many good things about it!

  19. The sky at the game looks amazing. The invites came out great! Hope you enjoy your weekend away.

  20. adorable invites for the turtle. i've never seen breaking bad. and baby girl names? elizabeth? i have no idea. i'm bad at these things. to heck with people's baby names. i can't tell you how many times people have my day. whatevs. ;) (obvi, i'm not a mom yet.)

  21. OMG you are NOT the last person on earth to watch Breaking Bad! I just began it a month ago and also just finished it (I basically did nothing the whole time). It was AMAZING and I basically couldn't detach reality from the show and was always nervous about what was to come next lol. So enjoy it! I won't give any spoilers!

  22. Kinliegh,, Elle, Malorey, Marley, Kate, Addison, Gianna, Andy, (I love boy names for a girl....) Enjoy Denver. Is it true that it is hard to breath there. I am from California and people have told me that due to the altitude, it is hard to breath. Just wondering! The invites are adorable
