Friday Five {TGIF}

TGIF!  Time for a little Friday Five.

What I'm loving this gorgeous Friday:

{1} I finalized our gallery wall in our dining room!  Sneak peek below.  It went up on the wall slightly different.  I'll do a post soon with lots of pictures of the gallery wall and a new piece of furniture that we purchased for this room.  Just so, so thrilled with the outcome.

{2} Loving tasty and easy summer salads.  Before Crockpot comfort foods take over this fall, I've been taking advantage of warm-weather dinner staples.  Buying a head of lettuce and quartering it makes four easy and inexpensive salads for us to enjoy.  I top ours with light blue cheese dressing, blue cheese crumbles, bacon bits, and cracked black pepper.

{3} I'm definitely loving that this weekend, my sister becomes a wifey and I gain my first brother! 

{4} And along that note, I had a great time last night trying on all of my outfits, shoes, and jewelry that I have planned for all of the fun wedding festivities.

{5} STILL loving the cucumber gimlet cocktail that I posted the recipe for earlier this week.  Take advantage of the last few summer days and make yourself a batch this weekend!

Speaking of the dwindling summer, who's been wearing their white jeans like crazy?  I've got mine on today and am enjoying every millisecond of it.  I'll be sad to pack them away, but there's nothing like taking them back out again in the spring from their winter hibernation!  (For the record, I somewhat break the rules and have deemed it perfectly acceptible to start wearing white jeans after Easter.  So there.)

I'll be Instagramming photos of the lovely bride and wedding details this weekend -- follow me at @alizadventures!


  1. I've been wearing my white jeans as much as possible too! Have fun at the wedding!

  2. I don't own a pair of white jeans, althought I always think they look nice on everyone else. I think I'll be buying a pair next spring/summer!

    Congratulations to your sister! How exciting! :)

    Can't wait to see pictures of your gallery wall! Isn't it so fun to put up? Brian and I spent a few weeks completing ours. It isn't completely finished, but for the most part it is. I love how it turned out!


  3. How exciting for your sister!! Congrats to her! That salad is a great idea and I may be doing that for dinner tonight!

  4. I own those same nude pumps! And yup, my gallery wall went up differently than I had laid it out too ;) Can't wait to see it!!

  5. That salad looks so good!! Erica

  6. Congrats to your sis! I am wearing my white shorts this weekend for sure. I cannot wait to try the cocktail in a few months, even if it is winter ;) Have a fun wedding weekend!

  7. I wore my white today to and take it back out at easter

  8. I have a sunburst mirror on my gallery wall too (post coming this week, hopefully!) And yummm...I must try a cucumber gimlet!

  9. I love the sneak peek of your gallery wall! I can't wait to see it all finished! I had fun doing ours, even though it took me forever to decide which pics to put in the frames! haha

  10. How exciting to see your sister get married! Can't wait to hear about it, and see that gallery wall. ;)
