High Five for Friday!

3 cheers for Friday: YAY, YAY, YAY :)
Since I don't have Fridays off this semester, I fully appreciate the hype about Fridays!

Anyway, I'm linking up with Lauren over at From My Grey Desk for

Photobucket

So here are my 5 favorite things from this past week:
(I'm gonna warn you now, my week consisted of a whole lot of school so nothing was super exciting. But hey, it's the little things that count right?!)

one. I started reading The Hunger Games. I was skeptical at first, but I have to admit...I'm hooked!

two. SOAPING! Seriously so awesome to do during my daily quiet time. I found it thanks to Erin over at Captivated by Grace. Here is the link she gave for explaining it a little more.

The inside cover of my SOAP journal :)

three. 98 days until graduation! Hallelujah. Seriously hoping I can make it until then - senioritis is kicking in already...

four. I got this new candle (Paradise Flower) from Target & I am obsessed. It smells fabulous (even when it's not lit) and it's a great color. Plus it's 1/2 the price of a Yankee Candle. Can't beat that!



five. My hair can sort of go in a ponytail without a headband! This is HUGE. I haven't had a real ponytail in about 4 years, and I'm trying so hard to grow my hair out. I mean I still have to load up on the bobby pins & hairspray, but hey...we're getting there ;)

I'm also linking up with Hollie for...




Enjoy your Friday, friends :)

  4. Your hair will get there! I chopped mine up to my chin two years ago because it was so fried and it took me about a year and a half to grow it back. It won't be long before you are posting pics of you with long hair:)

    Happy Friday!!!!!

  24. YAY for your hair!! I had long hair until December and chopped it and now....it's a love/hate relationship.
