5 on Friday

1. I've been in Ohio for the past week and a half!  Haddie and I are here for my best friend's baby showers! Last week we went to Columbus for her first shower and got dinner with my cousin afterwards and tomorrow I head to Dayton! I am hoping to grab my favorite Dayton food, Fusian before heading home.

2. Sadly, a family friend (and one of my best friend's grandparents) passed away on Wednesday.  The visitation was today and the funeral is tomorrow morning. He hadn't been doing well for awhile, but he was a great man and left behind his wife of 62 years.  Can you even imagine?

3. I went to Verizon today because it hasn't been working well and was hoping to get it replaced since we have insurance on it and they told me that they don't do that anymore in store.  Isn't that stupid? I have been waiting months to find a good time to go to the store - I finally get there and they tell me to just fill out a form online and that I'll have to pay a deductible.  Ridic!

4. It's Valentine's month!! I love Valentine's Day.  Pink, red, hearts, lace, cupids, chocolates, flowers, cards, cherry cordials, yes please! Do you like Valentine's Day?

5. Talk to me about Lightroom presets.  Do you use them for your Instagram or blog images?  If so, what do you use? What are your favorites?  Where did you buy them?  I've been on the fence for awhile.  I'd like to make my Instagram look better/more cohesive but I just haven't pulled the trigger.


  1. Okay, so I HATE most lightroom presets... especially for the ones that the bloggers sell. (Orange photo tints? No thank you.) I bought some from Preset Base that cover all kinds of natural / outside photography and sometimes I use them, sometimes I don't. My friends with babies and beautiful instagrams use Jess Kettle presets and I like those, too. I get sale notices from Preset Base pretty regularly, so I can forward to you if you want. One thing I love about them is that if you buy their bundle (and I got my mine during a sale), they give you lifetime updates... so I get all their updates for free. It's really nice. Let me know! :)

    1. SERIOUSLY!!!! What is with the orange??? Why is everything orange/teal/brown? EW!

      I ended up going with Chelsea Jean presets before I saw your post so I'm going to see how I like them for awhile -- I'll let you know about the other if I end up wanting something different. Thanks!
