High Five for Friday!

Happy, happy Friday :)
Time to link up with Lauren over at From My Frey Desk for some Friday lovin!

My top 5 favorite things this week are....

one. Hasn't happened quite yet, but I'm so excited to celebrate my birthday with my closet friends tonight at Koto's Japanese Steakhouse! Here's to being 22 :)

two. My wonderful best friend / boyfriend surprised me with a "because I appreciate you" dinner on Sunday. Seriously...how great is he? Pretty dang great, I know :)



three. I'm pretty stoked that my "blog friends" are becoming real friends. Thank you, technology ;) Shout out to Meg, Annelise, & Megan

four. She was literally passed out while I was working on homework blog stuff. SO precious!



five. Although I find myself wanting to skip all of my classes already, I'm really happy that 4/5 of them are bearable and don't make me want to claw my eyes out! 

Don't forget to enter my giveaway

And as always, have a happy Friday, friends :)

  23. Happy Belated Birthday! And I totally feel you on the skipping classes part, I'm only a couple weeks into my LAST semester as an undergrad and I already find myself experiencing a rather severe case of senioritis. Ugh! Only a couple more months!
