5onthe5th | march 2013

Lucky for us...Gordon and I were able to spend the day together while the girls were in school and it just happened to fall on the 5th of the month. Not a normal, everyday 5th of the month, but a good day to document for sure!

1  |  pile of shirts ready to go to the dry cleaner to be laundered and pressed. way back when...when I was a new stay-at-home Mom with only two kids, I somehow convinced Gordon that starched dress shirts made a better impression in the work place and he fell for it agreed. lucky for me, he still takes them to the dry cleaner freeing me up for more creative time. 

2  |  a day together called for errands {see #1} and breakfast out together. can I just say that pancakes and coffee should not cost THAT much. no wonder we only go to IHOP once every five years. seriously.

3  |  this antique mall is on our commute from town to home but we rarely stop. when we do, we always seem to find a treasure. the server we moved from the sunroom to our dining room comes from here as does a sofa table we used for a while and then gave to Nana and Papa. 

4  |  Gordon has quite the eye for unique, and perfect, decor items. when he saw this treasure of an old, silver trophy he said that I needed it for my new Studio. made the purchase. silly ham that he is, he told me that I was his trophy wife. when he says it, it's way cuter than when I retell the story, so you'll just have to trust me that it was funny. especially because "trophy" wives are usually 8 years younger than the husband, not 8 years older like I am. see...funny. right? wait, it is an old trophy, so maybe it's not so funny after all. ha.

5  |  treasure # 2 was a 80s era Star Wars podracer. my Sweetie does love Star Wars, still, and his girls do, too. they loved it and he loved that they loved it. when I posted this photo on Instagram, I also e-mailed it to Gordon's brother who quickly wanted to know where he got it. yep, another Star Wars fan.

all photos made using my iPhone with the Instagram app and edited with the Earlybird filter.

  1. Would it be okay to use this title and idea on my own blog? I really love it. I have been reading along for about two years now and have been meaning to ask for a while. Your posts are always simple and sweet, even when they are just pictures of made beds. ;-)

    1. Hi Gwendolyn T,

      Go for's not my original idea at all, I was inspired by Ella Publishing and their 12 on the 12th project and just modified it to fit what I thought I could accomplish. I think you'll enjoy having these rather simple thoughts and photos recorded to look back on in time.

      Have fun!

  2. 5 on the 5th is my favorite series you do on your blog. Well, your minis are my favorite but 5 on the5th is right up there!! Love these little peeks into your everyday and the stories you tell.

    1. Makes me happy to know this little tidbit, Gina! I wish I were a better stortyteller, but some story is better than no story at all, right?
