Five on Friday: 5.25.14

Hellooooo Friday!!!
My husband and I have been putting in a lot of extra hours at the hospital and life has just been a rollin'.... sorry I have been slightly neglecting my bloggity blog!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to all of you who have left some of the sweetest comments! I love hearing from each and every one of you! Totally makes my day! :)
Welp... on to my list for Five on Friday!

one |  So, I have a question for all of you.... when it comes to comments do you reply via email or reply on the comment on your blog? I have been struggling with this because I once read that you SHOULD reply by email but to me then that looks like I neglect my comments and do not acknowledge them. I have been torn lately on what to do. Any comments, suggestions, or preferences by anyone?

two |   I love funny animal pictures on Pinterest, especially cat ones! Here are a few of my recent favorites!

three |  Last week or so I won a gift card to Flourish Boutique from Steph @ White Coat Wardrobe's blog giveaway and I finally got a chance to pick some things out a couple nights ago! It was super hard as they have so many items! I love their shop! The other night I wore their Blushing Ballerina flats that are featured on my side bar and they are SO comfy! It was my first time taking them for a spin and normally flats give me a little bit of a blister the first time I wear them but not these.
Check out their awesome site!

four | One trend I never thought I would jump on board with was camo but I recently found a "nice camo pattern" comfy tee at Target and could not resist getting it. Maybe camo is already on the way out but I am excited to mix and match it in to my wardrobe! Check back next week for some ways I have styled this trend!

five |  Less than 20 days and my husband and I will be on a beach in the Dominican for one week with a drink in our hands and good friends by our side! I CAN NOT WAIT!!! WOOO!!

  1. I always prefer to reply via email. That way I can chat back and forth with the person more easily :)

  2. I have always responded to comments int he comments section. Not sure I've ever emailed anyone a response to their comment.

    have fun in the DR! we just returend from Mexico! Beautiful weather!!

  3. I'm a reply via email type - but with non-reply bloggers I try to find their email...those flats are really cute!! 20 Days until vacay - lucky lady! Hope you have a great weekend!

  4. I LOVE your bio - we might just be long lost sisters ;) I LOVE biggby and everything else is the same, less the wife part - just got engaged! In response to your question - I like responding in the comments section for the exact reason you explained- I don't want them to appear ignored. I just started a new blog, so I hope that I can continue responding as I have comments!

  5. Girl, I'm struggling with the same thing except I'm on WordPress and I haven't really found a better way. And that cat with the sunglasses! So funny! Totally jealous about your trip to the DR!

  6. Hooray for the Dominican! :) I hope the time flies by for you!

  7. You will love the DR!! I went this time last year and it was so beautiful & basically amazing!
    Also- I reply via email or else people won't come back to your page to see if you've responded. I would comment back on the post maybe if it's something like.. where is that top from? so others will see that when they comment. Hope that helps!

  8. You know, I've wondered about the whole email-reply vs. reply directly to the comment thing and I can't decide which is better. I'm afraid that by replying directly in the post comments that they're maybe not seeing my replies, but I agree that going the email route can make it look like you never reply to comments. I have no solution for ya but agree that it's tough to figure out which is best!

  9. How fun that you won a giveaway! And yay for beach vacations--I'm totally jealous :)
