The Tiny Heart: High Five for Friday

11.16.2012

High Five for Friday

Linking up with From My Grey Desk for:


 1. I have to give a huge Thank You to Sarah from Span Tag Designs for my new blog design! Sarah was so patient in working with me and listened to all my change requests. I absolutely love the finished product...it's exactly what I had envisioned! If you're looking to give your blog a face lift, I highly recommend her!

2. My pumpkin obsession continues. I baked these Pumpkin Pie Mini Croissants the other day. They're little bites of pumpkin heaven!


3.  I won a portrait from the very talented artist and blogger Akiko. I think my cartoon self might be cuter than my actual self!



4. DIY legwarmers. Take an old sweater that you don't wear anymore and cut off the sleeves. Ta-da, instant legwarmers! 


5. The hubs and I got invited to a private party tomorrow at the House of Blues in Atlantic City. I've never been there and I don't know what to wear (especially since I was only given 2 days notice!). Help! Please give me your suggestions in the comments!

  7. Is the place dressy? I would maybe wear a skirt, top and heels - pretty simple but still put together and fab. Have a great weekend!

  24. Love the cartoon!!! So adorable!! You need to put that on your actual blog.

    Hmm...a private party. I say skinny jeans, cute blazer, and heels!! Work!

  25. Love the new blog look! I've been to the House of Blues once, but I think it depends on the type of party. I don't think you can go wrong with a dress, leggings and boots. It's dressy without being too dressy so you'll be prepared for any kind of party.

  36. I love your cartoon self! But there is no way she is cuter than you <3. Have a great time at the event! I say dress it up, but be careful with the shoes. HOB tends to have a lot of stairs (at least the ones here in California do). Wedge boots? Can't wait to see what you wore :)
