The Friday Five: The Final Frontier


You’re reading this right, you guys… this is it.  As part of a way to end the year, we’re also calling it a day on the weekly edition of The Friday Five.

Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean you won’t see a collection of internet greatness brought to you right here.  You just won’t see it once a week.  Maybe more like once a month?  Lauren and I came to the decision unanimously and given both our personal and blogging goals for 2014.

So here we go…

The Friday Five - 2So you’ll notice that you may recognize some of the links you see today.  I’m bringing you the best of The Friday Five.  These are my favourites of my favourites… the top of the top… so sit back and enjoy!


Here are the final picks:


From The Friday Five: Random Bits (October 25, 2013) – Mr. Rogers throws down some serious wisdom!


tripod lamp 0There’s little that excites me more than a good hack.  The price difference on these two is astonishing… From The Friday Five: Whoa (November 1, 2013)



Customize-Ikea-Frames2Oh wait… there is one thing that excites me more than a hack… IKEA!  Customized IKEA!  From The Friday Five: Give Me Gold Polka Dots (September 13, 2013)


Make your own rugDog rug!  Oh my I love this idea!  From The Friday Five: Good to Know (August 23, 2013)


funny-boredom-father-lessonBeing a good person isn’t so hard… From The Friday Five: {Tree} Stumped (July 19, 2013)


Now for my most favourite Friday Five thing EVERRRRRR:

OutroImage-TYep…. that girl right there I’m high-fiveing from hundreds of kilometers away?  She’s been by FAR the greatest part of The Friday Five and it makes me a little bit sad that our wonderful and fun collaboration is coming to an end, but I also know this won’t be the last time that The Learner Observer and The Thinking Closet names will be seen together.  Thank you, Lauren for doing this with me, for the weekly emails filled with puns, jokes, encouragement, prayers and love.  I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again –  you are one of the greats and I thank my lucky stars our paths crossed in blogland.

Now people, head on over to The Thinking Closet for The Friday Five Finale! (Or is it?)

 Thanks for following along every week.  You guys are the bestest.

I promise to be back soon with some goodies… The work on our basement studio is so close to being finished I can almost taste it.  SO EXCITED!

    Aw, I totally teared up just now reading your sweet words to me at the end there, Thalita. Thank you, friend. You are seriously one of a kind…and I agree, this will NOT be the last of our collaborations. No siree. In fact, I dare say, this is only the beginning!

    Here’s to seizing our blogging dreams and goals…and for all the inspiration that lies ahead…and not just on Fridays, but all 7 days of the week!

    Mwah! xo
