High Five For Friday: Date Nights & Great Finds

High Five For Friday: Date Nights & Great Finds

1. The Barrister’s Ball
Last saturday we attended the Barrister’s Ball. It was so much fun. I love dressing up and going to fancy events. You can read the full recap here.

2. I Found a GORGEOUS antique dresser
I’ve been on the hunt for a dresser since I moved. My closet space has been cut in half, so I was deserpate for one. I didn’t want to spend a ton of money, but I didn’t want a piece of junk. Luckily I found this beautiful dresser for around $100. I’m so happy with it!IMG_6116

3. Date Night at an MSU Basketball Game
Last night Ivan and I had a date night at the basketball game. I bought the tickets for $5 each. I didn’t realize we would be in the last row. But honestly, we really liked the seats. Nobody was yelling behind us, we had a back rest and the view was great. I’ve been farther away for NBA games and honestly it wasn’t bad last night.

IMG_61654. I Got the COOLEST desk top EVER
So I found some old gym flooring on Craig’s List. They pulled it out of a community center and had it up for sale. I bought a big chunk that I’m going to turn into our desk top. I’m so excited. I can’t wait to get started on it tomorrow.

5. The Office is Coming Together
So we’ve got a spare room in the new house, which means… OFFICE. I’m really excited because that means I get to decorate an office. We’ve decided that we’ll decorate it in an ASU scheme for Ivan, but I refuse to let it be tacky. I painted my old twin bed black and turned it into a daybed. Here’s what I’ve got so far. The new desk will go right across from it.IMG_61741

Today I am linking up with:

  • That dresser is such a steal! My extended family and I are all MIchiganders at heart and big MSU fans! ,

    • I was so excited when I found it. It’s in really great shape for how old it is too :) Thanks for stopping by Annie!

  • Your office looks great! I need to get mine back in order. After Christmas a bunch of crap got thrown in there, the door closed and honestly I haven’t gone in there much since. Time to organize! Good luck with your desktop project tomorrow!

    • well, you haven’t seen the other side of the room. There is junk just stacked where the desk will go. Oh well. Half the room looks nice.

  • That dresser is gorgeous and for $100?? What a find. You looked lovely at the Barrister’s Ball. I’m a former law student and now work at a law school. Barrister Balls are so much fun–like prom for grown ups.

  • LOVE that dresser. Great find!

  • Love that dresser! So cool. I love combing Craigslist and furniture consignment places for nice wood furniture. I figure they’ll always look good, no matter what the current style is. And I LOVE that dress you wore to the ball. You looked great!! Have a great weekend! Thanks for linking up as always!

    • I’m become a craig’s list addict. I can’t NOT look at things. I don’t even really need anything else, but I just love looking.
